I actually bought a kit on Dentakit.com. Love it! Soak for 15-30 min daily and you are done! I have had the retainers since the 2nd and they look great!

I am planning on getting some bonding done on my front teeth. I had it done about 20 years ago and it needs to be redone!

There are a couple of things I would like to fix but overall I think they look pretty good! Getting my bleaching trays tomorrow, and then my bonding done on the 30th, th...

THEY ARE OFF!!! I now understand why everyone says they feel slimy!!! It is less that something is coating the teeth and more that my lip isn't catching on anything now! It is really an "odd" feeling. I am scheduled to get my bleaching trays in the morning and then bonding on the 30th! Then back to ...

I thought my tops were ok and only wanted the bottoms straightened. The problem was that when bottom teeth move your teeth won't fit together the same way anymore!

For this reason, I got a full set of braces.

I will post later on how it went! I am scared to death that I will have little squares on my teeth. My daughter is supp...

My dental insurance doesn't cover any cosmetic work or adult orthodontics. Needless to say this has been a very expensive couple of years!!

Thank goodness my dentist needs a seamstress and I need dental work. We both win!

Yay! They said not to worry about it and not to wear the elastics and they will "see me tomorrow"!

I might actually get them off this time! Not counting on it but it is really posible!

I just hope that I don't have to go in to have it put back on for only 1 day! We will see what they say when I call. Having said th...

Well, had the "check" today. I am still on schedule to get them off next week!!! Yay!

I get bleaching trays made the next morning, then bonding about a month later. Then get my final retainers and will be done with all of the dental work!!!

We aren't moving so I can get the work done!

I have been in powerchains for a LONG time. They have closed several gaps through my treatment overnight!

It isn't your imagination. They are literally a pain, but they work REALLY well.
