If you have a phone that takes photos, try and do a quick shot of your teeth every month (or use a camera... I'm just suggesting that a phone is super-easy). You'll think that after 4 months your teeth look "amazing." (and they will) And then again after 6 months, you'll take a picture, and you'll ...

Keep in mind that the first wire, as my ortho likes to say, just wakes the teeth up. It really doesn't do a lot, it is just shaking things up a bit, getting your teeth ready to move, so to speak.
