Re: My Damon Clear Story!

Have you got permanent retainers top and bottom. My ortho won't put permanent on top and he says I'll need to wear retainer initially 24/7 then at night for life arghhhh as I run the risk of my arches collapsing even further than they had pre braces. Yeah, permanent on top and bottom. I've been wea...

Re: My Damon Clear Story!

Oh what an excellent result. So worth it. Did you get them whitened? Thanks :) No I haven't had them whitened yet, just a good clean. I was heading off to Greece for a week a few days after I got my braces off and I knew I'd be drinking a lot of red wine so thought I'd leave it until I got back. I ...

Re: My Damon Clear Story!

And they're off!! They're not perfect, the midline is slightly off and they're not all exactly the same shape, but I really don't care. I'm so happy with how they turned out. Money definitely well spent. unnamed-3.jpg unnamed-2.jpg I've had them off for three days now and I've only managed to show m...

Re: Braces at 30 - FINALLY!

Wow, your teeth are looking so much better already. They'll look great once the gaps have closed up. You must be really happy with the result so far :)

Re: First post braces meal

I want to sink my teeth into an apple... I don't crave apples but I want to see the beautiful perfect arch I imagine all my life. :oops: I totally get this. We have these gummy sweets in the UK called Percy Pigs. I bit into one of those the other day and it looked like it had been laser cut. It was...

First post braces meal

What's everyone looking forward to eating when their braces comes off? The office fruit bowl arrive today and I realised I'm really looking forward to choosing anything I want out of it, instead of playing safe with grapes and satsumas. Next time I going for an apple or a plum. Also really looking f...

Re: How often do you need to go in for unscheduled repairs?

I popped off two brackets, one of them twice and I've had my Damon braces 11 months. I haven't had to go in for anything else though.

Re: Does bonding stain?

Not that I've noticed and I drink a fair amount of coffee, tea, red wine, etc. Like you, I have bonding on one of my upper incisors because they weren't the same length. I also have bonding on my lower incisors to repair chips that happened before braces. Ah great, thanks. I'm going to have my teet...

Does bonding stain?

I'm having my braces off next week (yay!) and I'm getting bonding on one of my front teeth to make it level with the other one. It's not hugely different just a bit worn where it was crooked. I'm just wondering whether bonding stains? Will I have to limit the amount of coffee and red wine I drink fo...

Re: You know what the worst part of adult braces is?

I'm from the UK so we only have to be 18 to buy alcohol. I'm 27 and get asked for ID all the time. I feel it might be because of braces but I've made a point of trying not to show them and it still happens. Maybe I'm subconsciously giving something away.

Re: Front Teeth feel wobbly/ loose

Yeah definitely, you'll go through phases where different teeth are wobbly at the different times, depending on which ones are moving. For me it stopped about 6/7 months in, my teeth haven't moved much since then.

Good luck with your braces :)
