A smile can change someones day, however the perfect smile can change your day!
Over the years I have noticed a lot of movement in my teeth, the bottom ones are starting to cross over a little and front tooth is pertruding forward.
Instead of waiting and seeing if the movement continues, I have decided to jump on board with Your Smile Direct and give myself the best chance at the perfect smile!
The home process may seem daunting but is simple, and has easy to follow instructions for you to take your best impression.
Basically you are sent a box from Your Smile Direct consultant which contains the ingredients to make your moulds, teeth trays and all the information you need. You follow the steps included… combining the “base with the catalyst” to make your impression, Pop in the tray and bite down for a few minutes. You then wrap up and send back in anticipation of your retainers.
When the impressions are received by Your Smile Direct, the Orthodontic team develop a 3D scan of the moulds where they can create a customised treatment plan. This treatment plan will then be sent to you via email (example below) for your approval. This plan is a 3D visual of how your teeth look now and how they will gradually move throughout treatment until you reach your end result.
Once you are happy with your treatment plan and accept it, your aligners will then go into production and be sent out to you.
This can take roughly up to 3 weeks. You will then receive all of your aligners in a box and are to wear each set for the prescribed amount of time.
As per below, I received 10 sets. The first 2 sets of aligners I wore for a month and then 2 weeks each for the rest until all 10 have been worn (the 10th set is a little thicker and is to be continued for use as an aligner for bedtime).
The aligners can be a little tight to start but gradually they ease as your teeth start to move. After a day of the new set the tightness subsides and they become part of your every day.
So after 5 months, I just finished my tenth aligner which I now just wear at night to keep all the good work in place!! Couldn’t be happier!!
