Tray 44

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Unfortunately, it is also the last day of my Spring break :( Anyway, I'm getting done with my 44th tray. It's been a little weird wearing my trays for only one week each. I'm so used to wearing them for two weeks that I sometimes forget that I have to switch to a new one so quickly. But it's also really exciting when I do remember and I get to open a new package that is so close to the end. I'm really glad I've taken pictures throughout my journey. I look back at earlier pictures sometimes and can't believe the transformation my teeth have gone through in such a short period of time. I think it's funny when I see a picture and, at that time, I thought my teeth looked pretty great. And then I compare it to how my teeth look now and, well, they just don't even come close. I think I definitely owe this to my orthodontist for being able to see how much improvement could be made with a second set even with the huge transformation made with the first set. Even though it added more time to my treatment, I'm so glad we did another set because now my teeth just look amazing. I'll end this post now and let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment! I remember how anxious and impatient I was the first few weeks of my treatment because I wanted to see instant results. But yes, they definitely will come soon enough. Be sure to take lots of pictures so you have something to look back on! Good luck with your treatment and I hope you love your results as much as I do mine!

  4. I just read your story from the beginning, and I'm very happy for you and your amazing transformation! I'm eager to see the final result.

    I'll be starting Invisalign in a couple weeks as my second form of orthodontic treatment. I had braces when I was much younger, and I never wore my retainers like I should have. Consequently, I've acquired gaps and a few shifted teeth. My treatment should only be about 8 months.

    Thank you for sharing such great information and photos. I plan to blog about mine as well! Good luck with the last bit of your treatment. :)

  10. Invisalign aligners are the clear alternative to metal braces for adults, kids and teens. These clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve your smile.
