Hello guys! Here’s me who nao has straighter teeth doing a quick update on my invisalign progress. You can read my first entry here.
And you will love this post because there’s shitty teenage pictures of me with bad teeth and braces.
Takes a lot of courage to post it here!
Like i said, i did braces before, it just got fucked up again because i didn’t wear my retainer for life.
I was 14 WTF.
That was probably the first time i ever put on make up (by a make up artist) because i was already so vain i wanted to have nice pictures taken for memory before i go on a looooooong journey looking ugly in braces. So i went to have studio photo taken wtf. Ichigo and i were the first people who did this in our school. #hipster
Man you guys are so lucky. Back then braces is like a 3 years jail sentence. Everybody thinks you are a monster and nobody likes you.
Shit me no guys went after me and they all called me 绑牙妹。
My teeth was so awesome i always smiley very, VERY widely and proudly.
Until it was fucked up again…. for like some 10 years wtf. -_-
Until i discovered Invisalign!
So this is when i first started my aligners. I think i was on aligner 2 or 3. Bottom row is hideous and two front teeth are misaligned.
And the picture below is taken today, on my aligner-9!!
It’s half way through the treatment (normal procedure is about 20 aligners) and it’s so much straighter nao!!!!! 😀
It’s seriously a very very happy feeling!
Here are some FAQ that you guys often ask me regarding Invisalign. I will try to answer based on my experience! But please bear in mind that every individual is different so the effect and experience might differ too!
1. How much does it cost?
At Orchard Scotts Dental, Invisalign costs about SGD6500 – SGD8500 (simple to advance cases) and it can even go up SGD 9000 for very complex cases. A clinic i went to in KL told me that it is RM22,000 ONWARDS. So i think that’s pretty damn reasonable.
2. Does it hurt?
Man. Honestly? This is a meme i made on the first day i started my Invisalign:
The first day was so painful i almost wanted to fork an ant to death. And i was like WTF DID I GET MYSELF INTO?!
Trust me, (and Xiaxue, and many other people who have done Invisalign. Yes i know because i did so much research online), the pain is fucking worth it. Because, all you have to do is to tahan that one day of pain. And then it will be gone. Forever. And you will have straight teeth forever. Your call.
3. Does it still hurt every time you change to the next aligner?
You know what? You will experience a tightness surrounding your teeth, and I LOVE THE FEELING. I love it TIGHT! The tighter the shioker!!! Maybe that’s the closest i get to experience being a guy, you know, when… ok i don’t know how that works, honestly. I should stop typing. I mean, either that or Invisalign has made me a masocheese who enjoys pain.
4. How often should i wear my Invisalign?
You should wear it at least 20-22 hours a day. I wear it except when i am eating. It’s surprisingly easy once you get used to it. The plus point is, you will lose weight like mad because you will be SO DAMN LAZY to snack in between meals because you don’t want to brush and floss your teeth, again. I haven’t snacked in months.
5. Sounds awesome! I want perfect teeth NAO! Where do i go?

So guys! Let me know if you have any other question regarding Invisalign. I (and Orchard Scotts Dental) will try to answer you guys! 😀
You actually look kinda cute in braces and short hair!
So good~ U get sponsored for that! my teeth really really in need of Invisalign but it’s too expensive for me. 🙁 How I wish I were like you and xiaxue, famous bloggers too. :(( Sighs~
Btw, is there a need to pay at least half of the amount of money before starting the braces process? and possible to pay by installment? :/
OMG childhood pictures #inglip
How aften are check ups? Really interested in invisalign, but I think it would be cost prohibitive in Australia. If check ups aren’t that often, might make the trip to see your movie star dentist!
The second pic of you look so much like 小S!!! 😯 😯 😈 Chio pun!
Just felt a hole under my front teeth. Horrible. Will visit the dentist soon. Not my favorite kind of place.
wow. that was you? seriously, like two diff people. no offense. you’re just too uber pretty now!
Hahahah that is exactly how I felt when I had braces too. That feeling is so irritating!
The pain brings beauty lol
did you take your 4 wisdom teeth out?
if not, that’s it, that’s because of them that your teeth started to be llike that again.
i have braces now, and yesterday i toke my 3rd wisdom tooth out, to avoid them to not be in line again!
on the 17th of february i must go take out my 4th and last wisdom tooth!
it does not hurt (anesthesia), it’s just boring.
i wanna try this out so bad…but invisalign is ridiculously expensive in japan 🙁
i love that black shirt lol
The 14 year old you and the current you have so much resemblance!
hi cheesie, may i know how much you got your invisalign done for ? very interested
bitch please your teenage pictures considered very pretty already!!!
*burns own photos
I’m sure you were just as cute.
oh my! you look so sweet and pretty with that hairclip and short hair in your teens! I’m in love!!! 😀
OMG! You’re so cuute with the braces and the short hair!! 😆 And you have like perfect skin at the age of like, what? fourteen or something!? Cheesie, I envy u… But still I can’t deny the fact that I also ADORE u!!! 😉
Wow, you were a cute kid. Braces or no braces.
WOAH!!! Did you take that studio picture somewhere in Cheras? It was like a house converted into a studio. Had the same picture with the same background. I took a series too when I was 12 before I had to put on braces.
“The tighter the shioker” -lolled maxxxxxx.
i hate my retainers as well -.- my teeth are beginning to shift :'( those years of pain gone to waste -_______________-
now im regretting for not having braces. *le sigh
u were a sai kua pau. wahahahaha but tis ok now so pretty lor
RM22000? How much more expensive is that compared to the normal braces? I’m been wanting to straighten my teeth for the longest time but I don’t have the guts to lol.
Cheesie! u really looked like xiao S for the second pic! Cheers for getting a nicer set of teeth ! 😀
That’s pretty darn expensive for a student!! 😳
Do they accept instalments or do you have to pay full cash upfront?? 😯
how come second picture got double eyelid but the rest dont have!! ps??
Hey Cheesie! 😀
Love reading your blog and you were really ‘qing chun’ when you were younger , so still cute okay x)
Just wanna ask does invisalign affect your pronunciation? :O
Thanks and have a great day 😀
wow!! that’s lots of money!! but since it is worth it like you say and makes you happy, why not.
Have mentioned you here: http://glad2bhere.com/2012/01/31/since-everyone-is-doing-it/
Notice all the photo you have really nice brows!
I’m actually on my 6th aligner and I’m loving it! Only 2 months and my upper row is almost perfect.
hey there, are you saying that after I finish invisalign, i will have straight teeth forever? because if you wear braces, u have to wear retainers to keep it straight. if not, it will go back crooked. is it the same thing with invisalign? thanks.
walaoA ur second pic look like that taiwan XIAO S…hahahahaha
How many wisdom tooth you have? I wanted to do braces (Invisalign is too expensive). I have 2 wisdom tooth at upper row… haven’t come out yet… so now I’m worried after braces they will messed up my tooth! 😥 Where is the best place for braces in Malaysia? Can you tell me where you did your braces? Please reply. I need advise! Thanks.
Actually tis kind of invisible braces is cheaper in Msia.
how was the waiting time at scotts dental ?
Excellent invisalign post.
AlsoIi have given one Invisalign suggestion to improve your grin. It can help self-assurance and self-regard. There are a few motivations to perform orthodontic medicines – style, usefulness, or bot
