The bumps on the side of my mouth are round and although cant be seen unless I pull back my gum, when I do you can see them. However, this is always in private so not an issue. The bumps on the front of my teeth are rectangle and even when I look in the mirror from a couple of inches away I can’t ...

My lower teeth are noticable when i speak so i was a bit paranoid in the beginning but no one has noticfed anything. In total i have 6 bumps, two roun...

I have had invisalign for 6 weeks now (just started tray 4/24) and no one has noticed them or if they have have not mentioned it. I dont lisp at all anymore, did first few days but that was all. However i am only on lowers so this probably makes them less noticable.

It was quite easy, i was discussing the possibility of veneers with my dentist and she recommended that i also consider alternatives and meet with the ortho linked to the practise to discuss. The ortho told me about what options i had and that i would be a case for invisalign on my lower teeth but n...

Thanks for the comments. I am now just over one week into my treatment (L1/24) and things have settled down. My experiences so far: - Tooth pain.

New to invisalign and some q's

Hi all I have been lurking on this site for sometime ever since considering invisalign. I have a lot of crowding on my front lower teeth and have wanted to sort this out for years but didn’t fancy the metal braces route at the age of 34. So I decided to look at veneers following a discussion with ...
