I think I may just be a little bit in love with my Orthodontist. She is a genius! Through the magic of 11 years training and a bit of metal, she has turned my wonky, overcrowded teeth with a slight overbite into this!

I’m in my 30′s and have just completed  20 month course of orthodontic treatment to get straight teeth.  Here is a video I took 7 weeks ago when I thought I was days away from finishing my treatment. It contains some useful things to consider if you are making the decision on which type of braces to go for.

My treatment has taken about 8 weeks longer than we originally thought but now I am brace free forever and because I have some super retainers to wear to bed each night, this is exactly where my teeth will stay!  I’m so glad I did it- it just shows that braces are not just for teenagers.  It’s never too late to get a dazzling smile!

What do you think of my teeth? Let me know below!!

  7. [...] I did try contact lenses at one stage. I had the gas permeable lenses which were hardwearing but very uncomfortable. The daily disposables weren’t around at the time, or I’d have used the Acuvue contact lenses for comfort. Eventually, after years of having my glasses steam up when I went from a cold environment to a warm one, and having to keep my specs by the bed at night so I could see if I needed to get up, I went for laser surgery and haven’t looked back since! My laser treatment was part of an overhaul I gave myself, which included my fixed metal braces. Here is the post where I had them taken off! [...]
