However, my retainers hadn’t worked and some of my teeth had slipped out of position and my teeth had started to overlap in places.
I am a classical singer by profession and regularly perform in front of an audience. So I wanted to have a neat, straight smile and decided that I would pay for orthodontics myself, get my teeth straight again. But ensure this time that they stayed in place with the right retainers.
I shopped around at a couple of practices for a quote before deciding that Dental Solutions were best for me. What I really liked were the friendly team, especially Lauren the dentist, plus the price was the most competitive. Lauren recommended the Quick Straight Teeth system so I went ahead with straightening my upper arch.
My treatment was straightforward and took just 6 months from start to finish. I felt as though I was well informed throughout the treatment, and it was easy to make adjustment appointments at times to suit me. But the most important thing was that I felt absolutely no pain or discomfort whatsoever throughout my entire treatment at Dental Solutions – a very different experience to my orthodontic treatment as a child.
I am also very happy with the retainers that I now religiously wear, which my dentist also thinks is a good thing to protect my smile as I sometimes grind my teeth at night.
I’m so glad that I made the effort to have my teeth done, people have noticed and complimented me on my smile – I feel more confident now and definitely less conscious about smiling. I would happily recommend Dental Solutions to anyone considering orthodontics – modern dentistry is definitely a lot less painful and discrete than the train tracks I had as a child.
