Invisalign

November 23, 2011 in Vain pix u don't wanna see

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you would have known that i have started my Invisalign procedure awhile ago from Orchard Scotts Dental (Orchard Road, Singapore).

If you would bear with me, this is quite a long story.

I did my braces when i was 14 years old. That’s more than 10 years ago. (I would love to post a pic of me wearing braces lol but all my old albums are back in Seremban. Maybe in my next invisalign update ok!)

Anyway, i extracted 4 teeth, and had metal in my mouth for 2 years (luckily that time haven’t pak tor so no #thatawardmoment during make out), and my dentist asked me to wear retainers until i was 19.

BIG, FREAKING, LIE.

I wore retainers until i was 21.

Xiaxue has this theory about dentist conspiracy, and say they never tell you you have to wear retainer FOR LIFE, so that they earn more money  when you go back and fix it wtf.

So when my wisdom teeth grew out a year or two later, they pushed all my other teeth until they became all messed up again, especially the bottom row.

So nao all my braces effort wasted and i was very pissed off about it, but i thought, oh well, there’s always Photoshop and it’s not that obvious anyway (my upper teeth are quite perfect).

UNTIL I STARTED DOING VLOGS.

Wa sibeh cannot tahan when i look at my bottom teeth i want to break them all off wtf! I didn’t realize that the perfect smile is SO SO SO important and it bothered me very much until i feel super self conscious whenever i have to do a video. But there’s NO WAY i would go back to wearing braces again after that two years of looking like Kathy Beth Terry.

When i heard about invisalign, i was so happy and was super determined to do it. So i went to a local dentist and after the consultation, the orthodontist told me that invisalign cannot achieve the effect i want (i wanted to push my front teeth back a little cuz i have a slight overbite), and they encourage me to do the more aesthetically acceptable braces, which is white color, but still you have metal stuck in your teeth or whatever. I said that’s OUT OF THE QUESTION. So in the end he quoted me for my invisalign, guess how much?

22k onwards.

Summore he said cannot promise the result i want lo, wtf right.

I was very sad and succumbed to my fate to have bad teeth for life until one day i went to SG, and teman Xiaxue to her dentist in Orchard Road to get her new invisalign aligners and while feeling stupendously envious, i just asked if there’s a chance they could sponsor a Malaysian blogger as well *thick face* and she said she’ll help me ask.

And after a consultation with her F4 dentist Dr Ronnie Yap, he said he’d check my condition and let me know. Two weeks later i flew all the way back to SG and was extremely nervous about the result and he said…

YES.

It felt as if just got myself a marriage.

I’m getting sponsored by Invisalign!

Man i’m forever indebted to Xiaxue for my future straight teeth. Maybe i should engrave her name there wtf.

The funny thing is, when i visited my Malaysian friend Annie who married to Singapore, we had the same appointment on the same day at Orchard Scotts because she is also considering doing her invisalign there because she said that’s the best in SG, and they are also the Platinum Elite Providers of Invisalign. That alone sounds more than promising already.

So after doing my mould and waiting a few weeks of waiting for my aligners to be customized, I finally got them!!

Here’s the simulation video of how much teeth will look, BEFORE and AFTER.

More video on upper teeth, lower teeth and side view on my Youtube Channel.

Amazing isn’t it!!! I’m so so so excited about it!

:D :D :D

These are used aligners. I will get a total of 20 sets, and i’m on my 4th now!

Even though that means i will have to travel to Singapore at least once every 6-8 weeks to do a regular progress check-up and also get my new aligners, it is totally worth it.

Dr Ronnie Yap is the BEST DENTIST i’ve ever had. He has the smile of a bright sun, hair of F4 (according to Xiaxue lol) and super super patient with all my questions, and also Malaysian <3

And do you know that people do invisalign not only for aesthetical purpose? Dr Ronnie spent like half an hour explain to me why our jaw is so important that it directly contributes to many health related issues!!! He’s now wearing a device called orthotic too despite having perfect teeth because he has back pain (!?!??!)

Apparently if you have back problem, neck pain (like i do!!) etc it could very well be related to the reason as simple as the way you breathe and jaw misalignment etc. And Some of those problems can be corrected by invisalign! Ok i might not quote everything 100% correct here because it’s very technical stuff so go consult a orthodontist!

ANYWAY after saying so much finally some pictures!!!

This is me WEARING my invisalign.

It is TOTALLY transparent and really invisible (hence the name) and throughout the duration since i wore it a month ago, nobody noticed anything except when i took them off during meals and my friends went INGLIP.jpg “what did you just do?!?!!?”

Only when you get really REALLY close up only you can see a transparent layer over your teeth. But nobody will ever get so close to my mouth except my future boyfriend so yea.

This is again, me wearing my aligners, just to show you how awesome it is.

And that’s the beauty of Invisalign.

I can’t wait to have straight perfect teeth.

40 people cheesed “Invisalign”

  1. How much do they normally charge for invisalign in Sg? Would like to try one day :)

  2. Ooo I can’t wait to see the end result!

  3. Does it hurt? *interested* trololololol

  4. Can you close your bite while wearing that?
    I took off my braces few days ago and wearing a transparent retainer looks like invisalign, I can’t close my mouth right while wearing that T.T

  5. Urghhh since i read about the invaslign ad in Xiaxue i wanted to do. And know you blogging abt it just make me desperate! Because of my wisdom teeth my bottom teeth are a little out of place -.-” But i just can start ( maybe) next year =T

  6. i post my movie just for this god damn post.

    btw, you’re from seremban?! =O

  7. You will never achieve well aligned teeth with invasalign. Invasalign only performs small movements and your lower front teeth crowding is moderate instead of mild. Invisalign cannot fix jaw problems and neither does it cause back pains. The reason why some people wear Retainers longer than others is because their teeth tend to relapse and it is very common for a relapse. Based on your past experience you will most likely need a retainer in the future.

  8. omg!~ it’s invisiburu!~~Hmm…I have little fangs. some say cute but I a straight smile too! omg HE’S MALAYSIAN?!!!! Le sigh…can ask him to come back and open here one? branch out la!~

  9. i wanna try it out so bad!!!!!!! my upper teeth are perfect like yours but my lower teeth are a little bit messed up :razz:

  10. Ya, I agree with what the dentist mentioned. If your teeth misaligned, u will tend to chew on one side and causing imbalance development of the jaw muscle. Everything in your body is well connected like a highway, and imbalance will cause jam up, results in some problems in the long run. I like this post, thanks for letting me to be aware of the dentist conspiracy :D

    • yea Dr Ronnie say i might have teeth grinding problem in the last cuz see can see from my teeth!!!! >.< and i’m a mouth breather than nose thats why always have dry lips too T____T

  11. i had damon orthodontic braces. not so pro like you. :( anyway, i had only 27 teeth left thanks to the dental procedure …

  12. I’m sure your teeth will be same as XX after few months! :) And your teeth are so WHITE!!! Any tips to share?

  13. wow! great news! happy for you! :twisted: :twisted: will be even more beautiful! Lucky you :)

    And it’s really so important to straighten everything up! Cause if your teeth are sorta crowded in your mouth they are pushing too hard on each other and just destroy one another! sad story :)

  14. I think your teeth looks fine already. <3

  15. I think I have misaligned jaw. Quite serious one. Until my smile also looks sengek
    So inconfident when I smile. =(
    I wore braces few years ago but it can’t fix that
    Around how much for the consultation fee? =)

  16. Damn it!! Cuz I’m having the same situation, my upper teeth protruding out and bottom teeth is a mess after 3 years braces and 3 years retainer! SO SAD :’( I thought wanted to ask the dentist makes a new retainer for me…. definitely can’t afford invisalign but it’s indeed awesome :D

  17. I have pretty good teeth but I heard you can make your jawline sit differently to try and enhance your face shape or something? I know a guy got this done in singapore ages ago and he suddenly became handsome wtf like a manly jaw line grew out of nowhere

  18. You’re so lucky !

  19. Hi Cheesie! This is a very supportive post! Im experiencing the same probs like yours, a little overbite than makes me don dare to smile with closed lips, mouth breather oso. I have been considering invisalign all this while after Xia Xue post. However, i din see any dental clinic here that practice a very good skill of invisalign, like wat u mentioned just now, they cant guarantee that invisalign can cope with overbite. Your visit to Dr Ronnie Yap was so tempting to me but i bet the cost must be very pricey for me to travel thr. May i know how much does it cost for doing this invisalign in SG and how frequent that i nid to travel thr? (6-8 weeks) also? Or maybe you would provide me some recommendations of local dental clinic here in Malaysia? Thanks XOXO~

  20. omg. i have the exact same problem! I wore braces and then my dentist told me to wear my retainers for 2 years and it will be fine. -____- after my wisdom tooth grew out, my bottom row was screwed up. @_@ i just hate looking at them in the mirror!!! maybe one day I’ll do invisalign when I have enough money @_@

  21. you look as ugly as xiaxue. she makes me hate you bitch

  22. thanks for sharing..i think i should do this coz my teeth getting screwed up again after using retainer…less pain i think..

  23. I got horrible teeth on the top part, bottom seems fine. =( i guess i still need braces afterall. x___x

  24. your jaw has room for wisdom teeth even after extracting 4?!

  25. Invisalign totally changed my life too!!! Now i dare to smile wider and show my teeth more! Dr Ronnie Yap is indeed super nice and kind! He is also super passionate in his work

  26. hi , i got to know about your blog when i was researching about Invisalign…. may i know is 16k for Invisalign is the market price now. pls advice as i really want to go for it….and i dun want to get cheated.

  27. CHEESSIIEEE~~ hope you get awesome teeth, i’ve had brace for 3 years too!! worked well for me though.. :twisted: :twisted: one request, you should do a circle lens collection blog post!! =D i love these gray lens!!! PLEASEEE, ^^

Leave me a cheese
