Wow! Your teeth look great! It's amazing how a beautiful smile can really change one's overall appearance. That is mainly why i got invisalign. I am just starting tray 2 /31 U and 2/32 L. I am still new to the whole process and have a couple questions. For my 3rd trays, I am going to get my attachments ( :( ). Not looking forward to that at all. I have to get them on every tooth! And I want to know, honestly, how noticeable they are. I know you can tell me what every orthodontic says about how you can't see them blah blah. But I would like to know honestly from someone who has had them. Just basically how easily can you see them? (Would you notice them if I didn't smile fully?) Also, something you may not be able to answer, but my dentist has me eat with my aligners on, which means brushing and flossing after every meal (Gets a bit tedious after a while lol) I'm worried is the brushing actually important for the care of your teeth, or is it mostly so that gunk isn't built up that would look bad. Anyways, your teeth look great. I bet you can't wait to show off that smile or yours!

Thank you! :) I have some info about getting attachments on an older post, so take a look back further. At first I was uncomfortable with the attachments and wouldn't fully smile. My husband told me that holding back my smile was more noticeable than the attachments. I only have two on top and four on the bottom, so yours may be a bit more noticeable. I have to be honest, taking the aligners off when you have attachments can be tricky at first and with that many it's probably going to take some getting used to. I am surprised to hear that your dentist wants you to eat in them. Invisalign says that you should take them out to eat then brush and floss. I would imagine that all of the chewing could damage the aligners. Not to mention all of the food getting stuck inside them. Best of luck. Post back when you get your attachments!

Super awesome! It's so obvious how your teeth have changed, and it's actually great. It's okay to brush your teeth after you eat because it will definitely make your teeth healthier through the whole process.
