Well I finally finished Tray 18. I was supposed to have finished about 2 weeks ago, but I had my tonsils removed just before my appointment to get my next few trays so I had to reschedule. Anyway, back to the trays. I find myself getting slightly impatient. I see how close my teeth are to being straight and how much movement has taken place since I started wearing them back in July, and it just makes me want them to be straight right now or very soon. I'm not as self conscious about my teeth and smile as I used to be because now there are really only 2 teeth that still need a little work as opposed to all 6 of my front teeth. But, I still don't smile as much as I would like to. I'm hoping the next few trays will let me smile more because my 21st birthday is coming up in May and I would love to have lots of pictures with me actually smiling in them. And I also want to lose a few pounds, but that's off topic. This post has a few pictures, not a whole though. The next post should have quite a bit more since it'll be for Tray 20, which I had said in an earlier post that I wanted to post lots of pictures every ten trays. With that being said, here are the pictures. Let's hope everything goes smoothly from here on out.
