I GOT BRACES! My Six Month Smile Video Diary: Day 1

Hi my lovelies,

So last Friday I finally took the plunge and got fitted with adult clear ceramic braces!

Say cheese!
Never one to do things by halves I'm having both top and bottom teeth corrected, which will then enable me to change my much hated 3 tooth bridge...bleugh....I really do hate that bridge.

Check out the much hated 3 tooth bridge.
My braces are 'Six Month Smile' corrective braces, I have some crookedness and overlapping caused by overcrowding to correct. My orthodontist thinks I'll need to wear the braces for about 5 months, and then a clear retainer at night to stop the teeth moving back. Did you know your teeth continued to  move as an adult? I honestly didn't....until it dawned on me a few years ago that my overlap was getting worse eek!

So to document my progress I'll be doing a regular video diary...vlog...video blog....whatever the heck you call it. It's easier for you to see what's going on in a video.

It makes me laugh to see this. Seriously, how hyped am I? Just too excited after being at the dentist and finally getting the braces after years of debating. If you want to see me looking a little nervous....aka 'shaking like a leaf'... then check out the previous video where I'm sat outside the dental clinic.

I have to say the braces feel enormous to me, like they arrive 5 minutes before I do! Yet most people took a while to even notice and some didn't realise at all until I pointed them out. Not sure if that's because the braces are pretty much invisible, or if we really don't take that much notice of each other.

So get used to seeing some highly unflattering tooth photos of me as I'll be posting regular updates to let you know of my progress, any problems I encounter and to give any hints and tips I come across.

Thanks for reading and watching!

I've had braces for over three years now and I'm getting my braces off during my next orthodontist appointment next month.
