The Start Of A New Me

Growing up I never really cared about my teeth, to be honest I am surprised I still have them! The amount of sugar in an 80’s/90’s kids diet growing up was insane. I hated going to the dentist and often removed the entry “Dan’s dental appointment” off the family calendar in the kitchen. I think a lot of this stems from having to have dental surgery twice when I was younger, apparently I had too many teeth? It was that bad I even broke my removable brace on purpose as I hated wearing it.

I grew up with wonky teeth and the older I have got, the more self-conscious I have got. Teeth are one of the first things I notice in a person; I think a nice set of gnashes makes you look younger and well kept. 

As I am going to be 22 (give or take 10 years) this year I decided its time to sort myself out, I have been moaning about how unhappy I am with my weight and on top of that how unhappy I am about my teeth (So technically my whole body image).

I was visiting the Corn Exchange in Leeds as my partner wanted to get some piercings at Reds, I went for a walk whilst I was waiting for her and stumbled upon Benz and Blanc. They had this poster outside which mentioned clear braces at the fraction of a cost I have been quoted from my dentist! I am not going to lie, I wouldn’t normally go into a shop like this on a whim but I thought sod it I need to get my teeth sorted, so I went in.
I went straight to the desk and had what I can only describe as a mini consultation. They took me through what the process entails and showed me some before and afters. I was quite impressed and the one thing I really loved about it is that even after I had just spent the best part for 20 minutes taking me through everything, they just said if you want to book in just give us a call. There was no pressure, so I could have gone home and thought about it, I just booked straight it to get the ball rolling!

I returned a week later and Paul took my impressions for the braces, photographed my teeth for a before shot and then I was on my way. Around a week or so later after the appointment I received an email with a short clip on how the brace will align my teeth and just had to confirm that I was happy with the treatment. It was really quick and I all I have to do now is wait for my braces to be delivered from Your Smile Direct.

I really can’t wait to get started with the clear braces and feeling comfortable with my smile. I will be sure to keep you updated and show you the before and after when the treatments ends in around 6 months’ time.
