I regret getting my metal braces. . .

Today I want to tell you something about my teeth. I have never felt comfortable smiling and even if many people told me that I shouldn’t be embarrassed I have never been able to feel confident. When I was little I had two sets of braces, they were both on the back of my teeth so that they could not be seen and my dentist told me that these two braces would solve my problem, but that wasn’t the case. When I turned 18 my smile was still a big problem for me. For this reason, I decided to talk with the dentist in order to find a solution. He told me that the only thing I could do was to wear a traditional metal brace (which was obviously very visible) in order to straighten my teeth. Since I really wanted to solve my problem, I decided to accept his suggestion even though I was a bit scared about what I would look like with the metal brace. I’ve been wearing the brace for 6 weeks now and I can see the progress, but I have to say that when I became aware of Your Smile Direct I was sorry that I didn’t hear about them before getting the metal brace.

The Social Six - Do I need both rows of teeth straightened?

What are the Social Six you ask? No it is not cheesy a boy-band, it is actually the most prominent and visible teeth on the top and lower arches of your teeth - so technically its the Social Twelve. . . but that doesn't sound as slick.

This is the treatment that Your Smile Direct specializes in with invisible braces otherwise known as invisible aligners!

These products can be mistaken for retainers at times but the name "aligner" gives us a clue, they align the teeth and move them into the desired position whereas retainers are used to retain the new position of your smile!
