Kacia is a dental hygienist from Ottawa, dedicated to helping people through her quality care. Having a job where she needs to talk to people day by day, specifically in the dental profession, she knew people were going to look at her teeth. She had a lot of crowding in her front teeth which made her self-conscious. Then she met Ottawa Invisalign dentist Dr. Kamel and learned about the Invisalign system. It gave her the ultimate confidence.
“I Had a Lot of Crowding in My Front Teeth and Was Self-conscious about It.”
I grew up in Ottawa and still live here. I’m married and we have a family of fur babies – our dogs, Amarouq and Teak. Growing up, I was always shy about smiling; showing my teeth and what not.
I had a lot of crowding in my front teeth and was always self-conscious about it. Although my parents had dental insurance, for them it was just a good thing if you had healthy teeth. They weren’t really as concerned about teeth alignment.
“When I Heard about Invisalign, I Instantly Knew It Would Be the Right Fit for Me.”
I have always been self-conscious about my smile specially working in the dental profession. When you’re speaking and talking with people all day, you know that being in this profession, they are going to look at your teeth. I really wanted to try Dr. Kamel’s Invisalign system. So when Dr. Kamel offered the Invisalign system to me, I jumped on it. It sounded like a perfect fit for me because it was aesthetic enough that I didn’t have to worry about people looking at my braces.
“It Is Painless and You Get Used to Wearing Them Quickly.”
It made me feel really good when people would say, “Oh, you have such beautiful teeth.” I’ve had never heard that in thirty-five years.
I started wearing Invisalign braces when I was 34. There’s a short period of adjustment for maybe the first day but found them really easy to wear.
During the first day of each new tray, when I would put my Invisalign braces in, there might be a little discomfort but I wouldn’t call it pain. I felt a little tenderness but it quickly went away. Perhaps, that tenderness lasted for a day but I supposed that was just because there was a little bit more tension on specific areas.
“One of the Reason I Chose the Invisalign System Is Because It’s Easy to Use and Its Non-aesthetic.”
I chose Dr. Kamel’s Invisalign system because of the ease of removing them. Also, the oral hygiene is lot easier than having metal braces. For me, specially being in the dental profession, I realized how important it is to brush and floss like I normally would. It was nice that I could just remove my Invisalign braces.
Another benefit is that you can eat whatever you want without feeling discomfort. With metal braces, you’re not able to eat a lot of foods because they can get stuck in the brackets. The Invisalign aesthetic part was appealing for me too. I was getting married and I was going to have to have my wedding pictures taken while I was still completing my treatment. People didn’t even know that I was wearing braces. I mean at thirty-four, I didn’t want to have the metal braces that people could see.
“It Was All worth It. People Notice My Beautiful Teeth.”
Invisalign sounded like a perfect fit for me. The ease of removing them, the oral hygiene is a lot easier than having braces and you can eat whatever you want without feeling discomfort.
It made me feel really good when people would say, “Oh, you have such beautiful teeth.” I’ve had never heard that in thirty-five years. I remember going to grocery stores the day I finished my Invisalign treatment and somebody actually said to me, “You have really nice teeth.”
People were noticing my teeth, my smile. It is completely worth going through the eleven months that it takes to wear Invisalign. In my case it was a little bit longer as it took me probably a year and a half to complete it. But, if your someone like me, self-conscious about their smile, this is what it takes to achieve that perfect smile that you want. Plus, it’s a bonus that people wouldn’t even notice your wearing them.
“I’m Very Happy with My New Smile.”
Dr. Kamel definitely gave me a smile that gives me more confidence and I’m forever grateful for that. Without hesitation, I would recommend Invisalign to others if they’re considering it.
