My Invisalign Journey: Getting started
I’m excited to finally share that I’m getting Invisalign treatment! I’ve wanted to straighten my teeth for years, but a number of factors held me back. I’ve decided now to take this journey, and we’re going to document the process, so you can see what’s involved and how it works.
Being a beauty editor is a pretty great job. I get to attend loads of amazing events, and my day-to-day consists of the latest and greatest beauty products. I love my job, but there are certainly challenging aspects to it, particularly being in front of the camera on a regular basis. While shooting videos is fun, it also brings out my biggest insecurity — my teeth.
I know my teeth aren’t disastrously crooked, but they’re not as straight as I’d like them to be and I’ve always felt self conscious about smiling. I’ve wanted to get them straightened since I was a teenager, but was put off by the cost and didn’t want to wear braces that were visible. That’s why I’ve chosen Invisalign treatment — it's virtually invisible, which means it won't disrupt my work on camera or my lifestyle. I also found that many practices offer payment plans for Invisalign treatment, which means you don’t have to pay for the full cost of treatment upfront.
The first step in my Invisalign treatment was calling the Invisalign Smile Concierge. It was great to talk to someone who could explain the process to me, and they even managed to book me in for a free assessment! At my appointment, the Doctor used an iTero scanner, which produced 3D digital images of my teeth and a simulated outcome of what my new smile would look like at the end of treatment. I couldn’t believe how great my teeth could look — I was so excited!
One of the reasons I chose Invisalign treatment is because it offers the most advanced technology for teeth alignment, so I can feel confident in the results. The Doctor created a personalised Invisalign treatment plan, which anticipates the exact movements of my teeth and the duration of my treatment.
Now all I have to do is wait for my Invisalign clear aligners to arrive! I can’t wait to share my Invisalign journey and the progress towards my new smile. Watch my first video above to see how it all began.
Invisalign® treatment is a series of clear plastic removable orthodontic aligners that gently move patients’ teeth. An orthodontist or Invisalign trained dentist will be able to advise whether Invisalign treatment is right for you. You should always read and follow their directions for use. In rare cases, allergies may occur.
