Re: How long for IPR gaps to close?

Hello
I can't help with your question, but was wondering if you could show pics of the gaps before and after IPR? I potentially need to have IPR done and would love to see how much actually gets shaved off/how much space is created. Thanks!

Re: I don't like my braces

I just ceramic braces too and they do feel bulky. I can't smile with my mouth closed anymore and have been eating a liquid diet for 5 days. Got to think about the end result, it'll be worth it!

Re: 3M Unitek Clarity SL or Clarity Advanced Ceramic Braces

I just got Clarity Advanced Ceramic Braces banded last week but in hindsight should've probably gone with the Clarity SL as the brackets are smaller and the metal is minimal.
