My before and after photos. Unfortunately my before photos are a bit all over the place, some are in black and white, some are not great quality and some are small etc but that's all I could find when searching for my before pictures so I will just have to make do.

It looks a bit like I have white things/spots on my teeth in my after photos here but it's just the reflection from the window I was standing in front of

I had a hygienist appointment yesterday, it was my very first one... sounds kinda gross but I was with the same dentist since a child and they didn't have a hygienist in office so it wasn't a service they offered. I didn't know what to expect but the lady was lovely and explained everything. She asked me a few questions about my current cleaning routine and I told her I had recently got my braces off after almost 3 years. She took a good look and poke around and praised me on how good condition I have kept my gums in since being in braces, she told me how she sees a lot of patients who have had braces and their gums suffered from poor oral hygiene and not being able to clean them as easy with all the brace in the way. She said she couldn't tell me to change anything because what I'm doing is working very well and told me to keep doing it. Oh actually one thing she did mention, I'm brushing too hard so need to be more gentle. Then came the clean which was fine, my teeth felt very clean afterwards compared to a quick scale and polish at the dentist. I had a couple of stains on my teeth which bugged me but they're now gone so that is good. I recently bought some Crest Whitestrips to try and lighten my teeth some and now I have the all clear on my gums and teeth I'm going to start using them soon and see if they work!

When I woke up this morning I noticed some pain in my lower right central incisor. It's the type of discomfort we all know when we first got our braces on, it's not a sensitive sensation, it's the same type of feeling I got when I first got my braces on or right after an adjustment. I'm hoping during the cleaning my lower retainer hasn't been dislodged on that particular tooth and that's why it's painful. I have checked and cannot see any movement and the glue/wire seems to still be intact. I'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes.

I recently received my sonicbrite cleaner in the post. It's ok, not brilliant but it will do. I have also started using a toothbrush made for sensitive teeth on my clear retainers because I just couldn't keep them clean enough with water rinsing and retainer brite.

Thank you so much Jem, JeniK and anedia! I am very happy with how they turned out and even though I did moan quite a lot during my treatment and sometimes even regretted getting them I can now say I AM glad I got them, it was definitely worth it.

Hello,

My teeth look very similar to yours and I was looking for someone that had the front teeth overlapping the ones next to them and pointed inward. My DDS thinks it's a 2 year process, but I'm very glad to come across your picture as it gives me confidence to go ahead with the braces. My DDS says he will need to 'file' less than a mm of a few teeth to make room. Did your do anything like this?

Your smile looks awesome.

Hi methods.
