Growing up I was always torn about whether to have braces or not. I was never NHS qualifying for braces growing up. My brother and sister both had them and I always felt a bit left out! Once I got to university I thought to myself right I’m going to sort this out! I could see there were definitely some changes I could make and I went ahead and did it and it was a great journey! For me there were both functional and aesthetic reasons. Aesthetically I knew it was going to make a big difference to my facial profile, I was excited by that, and to get a fuller and whiter smile was also a big factor for me. The SureSmile experience was fantastic! It was very comfortable, nothing was too difficult. Wearing something for 22 hours a day took a while to get used to but once you start wearing them every day and once a week passed it was totally fine and you just integrate it into your daily routine. Take them out when you eat, give your teeth a quick brush and a rinse and then put them back in it wasn’t difficult at all.
For me it was an investment in my appearance and my confidence. Using the CBCT scanner allowed me to have an interactive experience. The digital experience and the digital scanning allowed us to work together and being able to visualise and see ‘this is what your teeth are going to look like’ is an experience I can’t explain. We sat there together and at the touch of a button, to be able to see what your teeth are going to look like was just incredible. When I saw the transformation on screen I knew I had made the right decision!I knew it was going to make a big difference to my appearance and functionally they would be less crowded, easier to clean and more aesthetically pleasing. I knew I had made the right choice! It’s amazing to be able to see the progress week on week. It’s been a lifelong investment and I’m so pleased I did it!
