Ever since I was young, I have always wanted straight teeth. When I was in grade school I did have standard braces for 2 1/2 years and as I got older I started to notice that my teeth were crowding. Being a Dental Assistant, our office was invited to Drs. McNeill and McCulloch's office for an Invisalign lunch and learn. Going through the planning process of getting married, I wanted straight teeth for the event. After the lunch and learn, I went back to Drs. McNeill and McCulloch's office for a consultation and their staff made me feel so comfortable in their friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Dr. McNeill explained to me that the trays are clear so you wouldn't see them and easy to remove to floss - no wires! The treatment was simple and painless and now that my treatment is complete and a baby later, I have a fantastic smile and have Drs. McNeill and McCulloch and their staff to thank. Thank you for everything - I love my smile again!
I definitely smile a lot more. Even though I'm still in treatment, it has given me more confidence. It's given me something to look forward to. I feel good about myself. I feel good that I have taken the steps to get these braces.
What I like best about Invisalign is the fact that I can take them out and floss and brush my teeth and put them back in. So it's not like I'm working around all this metal in my mouth, trying to get the toothbrush in there and floss in there.
I would not have gone the regular braces route. The reason for that is that I am in a customer-facing position. I'm in the hi-tech industry, with a lot of people around me that are young and hip and moving and shaking. To be in management, in a hitech company with a mouthful of braces in front of customers and prospects and other executive strategic alliance partners, it just wasn't an option
I am absolutely, positively thrilled. The fact that I was done with it in less than a year, and really had no inconveniences whatsoever, makes me wonder why I even hesitated.
At my age, to have the big metal train tracks in your mouth, I just figured, in person with people, I just wouldn't feel as comfortable as I would with something that was truly invisible! I really believe in the product. I'm kind of a walking, talking billboard for it.
