In this Six Months Smiles testimonial by Marisol, she discusses how prior to being treated at Smiles for Life, she had a gap about five millimeters wide between her front two teeth. Throughout the process, her teeth were adjusted to help her achieve the smile she always wanted. Now that she has straighter teeth and a healthier looking smile, she can share her smile confidently with her family and friends.
My two front teeth were just separated. They were about probably 5 millimeters apart. It was just so much and they were twisted and turned. Then Dr. Ryan said, "I can fix those in six months," and he did.
Each time I would come, he would ask me, "How are you seeing your teeth?" Or if I wouldn't like how a tooth was turning, if I didn't like it, he would turn it to where I liked it. I would come every month. He would adjust them, make them feel tighter every month. But I started seeing movement within the first week so that was amazing. I love them. I just love to smile now. It's even pushed me to do some modeling and just love taking pictures.
It's funny because at work they call me the "selfie queen" because I'm always taking selfies now because of my smile. Especially now, knowing I can just go out and smile, especially with getting to know new people, they just look at my smile now. Before it would be like, "Oh," I would know somebody new. They'd be like, "I like your make-up," or something." And then they'd see my teeth and it was like, "Oh, she has crooked teeth." And now it's like, "Oh, look! Your teeth are pretty and straight."
I would say to do it. You won't regret it. It's going to be a great experience. I would say don't think about it twice, just go ahead and do it.
