Diane’s Story – Fixed Braces

diane-hegarty-fixed-braces-dental-solutionsIt was my children leaving home and having some time to myself that gave me the final push to sort my teeth out.

Over time my teeth had begun to stick out and cross over at the front – it was now or I’d never get them sorted. My daughter-in-law Donna had had her teeth straightened at Dental Solutions and recommended that I came for a free consultation.

Badri was put in charge of my treatment, which took just over 18 months. I had ceramic fixed braces that were barely noticeable over my teeth. They felt uncomfortable when they were first fitted and then again after each adjustment but this wears off quickly – I just kept focusing on the end goal instead!

I honestly thought that more people would notice my braces – but not many people did – it seems to be much more normal to wear them these days, and they weren’t that visible.

The end result is just brilliant – I am delighted with my new straight smile. I had to teach myself to smile again as in the past I would avoid smiling or go to the back of a group photo. I work in the healthcare sector with lots of other doctors and nurses so I am always in and out of meetings. I feel more confident and smiley now and as a result, it is also easier to put nervous patients at ease. And when I go out socially with my nursing friends I am now at the front of the group photos!
