I never thought I'd actually try on Invisalign treatment as I never thought I would want to straighten up my teeth.
From young, I have cross bites on my left side of my lower teeth (bitting on my upper ones) but they are usually not obvious in my pictures because of the angles I took, trying to avoid it showing out haha!
But honestly when it comes to shootings, gosh. It is so obvious that I think people would just pay attention to my teeth instead. HAHAHA
Therefore, I- have- to- fix- it.
As an artiste, I think the biggest and first impression you give someone is definitely your smile! and I'm always conscious on how my smile look everytime on photos and also on screen.
So, one fine day, I decided to consult a dentist to really see what I can do to my teeth, I went on googling and landed on Imperial Dental Specialist Centre good reviews and so, I just decided to give it a go and consult.
I went in and was greeted by friendly receptionist. I was told to wait for a moment and then I was lead further into the dental clinic on the second floor. To be honest, this is the biggest dental clinic I've been to. No kidding. haha!
I was then consulted by Dato Dr How Kim Chuan , on what possible treatment is best for my condition and tadaa! I was introduced to Invisalign.
How does Invisalign Treatment Work?
"Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.
Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place."
Okay, apparently they are the new type of braces but without the wires and pain. You can take them in and out conveniently whenever you eat or brush your teeth. The rest of the times, you just wear them and the fact that they are barely noticeable, friends of mine do not even noticed I was wearing invisalign on my teeth.
You have to change them every week or two depending on how often your doctor advices you to. For my case, Dato Dr How advices me to change them every two weeks.
My total Invisalign treatment was 14 pairs of aligners which took me 28 weeks = 7 months treatment.
In just 7 months, I've fixed my smile!
This is taken before my treatment. You can clearly see what I meant on my cross bites.
Here are more pictures during my treatment. It's super convenient and not obvious on wear, so you don't have to worry about the visible wires or the trouble of cleaning them at all!
Perfect if you always attend events, meetings without having the fear of looking different!
The whole time of my treatment, I was under the supervision of Dr How. He is super professional, efficient and humble. The wise words he advised me are very encouraging and made me realized , he's not just any other ordinary doctor but somehow like a mentor to me as well.
Deep down my sincere heart, Thank you Dato Dr How for your kind patience and time on me. I sincerely appreciate everything.
The after treatment smile for you all to compare! My jawline is now more even and my smile is definitely more aligned!
Dr How is also kind enough to help me do gum lasers to make my teeth even more aligned and lessen my gummy smile!
My smile became so much more wider and more confident after fixing it and I do recommend you this treatment if you need to get your teeth fixed.
Do get your consultations with a professional dentist and I too recommend you to consult with Dato Dr How at Imperial Dental bangsar. No harm doing it if you need a better looking smile. =)
