Well, that’s a wrap! If you had told me that in just over a year, I would have my perfect smile, I wouldn’t have believed you. But here I am, just over 12 months after we started our Invisalign® treatment journey, grinning like a Cheshire cat – beaming out at the world with a smile I love.

But what makes my heart really soar, is seeing my daughter bursting with confidence. I have watched Emma blossom before my eyes. Before our Invisalign treatment, she stopped smiling. She was embarrassed by her crooked teeth and it was heartbreaking to watch her trying to hide by turning away. I was always telling her she was gorgeous in and out, but having an uneven smile meant she just couldn’t see it.

Confidence Boost

“Having a confident smile is really at the heart of self-image – When someone doesn’t feel confident about their smile then that self-doubt and resulting anxiety infiltrates otherwise enjoyable social situations, making them stressful,” says child and family psychologist Clare Rowe. “Teenagers shouldn’t be thinking about such issues and should be free to be themselves without the thought of covering their smile.”

“Teenage years have always been hard, so providing teens with an effective, easy and non-invasive way of re-aligning their teeth gives them a simple way to boost their confidence so they don’t feel the need to hide every time a phone or camera phone is brought out”, she says.

Take On The World With A Smile

But now, Emma is able to look the World in the eye and smile right back. She loves her new smile and it’s given her a massive boost of self-worth just when she needed it (during those tricky teen years).

Emma’s amazing smile transformation with Invisalign treatment

“I can’t believe how much my smile has changed for the better!” Emma told me. And even better, she said “No-one even noticed my Invisalign aligners during the treatment”.

I think Invisalign’s clear aligners were a game-changer for me. As an older mum, I would have been way too embarrassed to have braces.

The process was also so much easier than I thought it was going to be. It all just fit so easily into our lives and we only had to visit the orthodontist every 6 – 8 weeks.

Emma was blown away by the technology and loved how the orthodontist took scans of her mouth so she could see what her teeth would look like after the treatment.

Our Invisalign treatment journey has really been life-changing for both of us!

“I can’t believe how quickly I got the best smile I could hope for,” Emma told me with a massive grin, showing off her pearly (straight) whites.

  • Looking at the before and after pics here, and I have to say the before wasn’t that bad to begin with. Yeah, the after is an improvement, but the before aren’t as bad as some I’ve seen


  • Just don’t disagree with your ortho because they don’t like it. My daughter now talks with a lisp and any discussion was apparently not on as she wasn’t the specialist here.


  • Great results that’s for sure and much nicer than the old metal braces.


  • This seems a great idea so much better then metal braces.


  • Both of you look amazing! It would be a huge confidence boost to have such beautiful teeth and smiles!


  • Beautiful smiles, but they were already beautiful before your treatment if you ask me !


  • You both have gorgeous smiles! I would love to achieve this beautiful result!


  • Great results! Want to start Invisalign treatment too. Don’t want to be unhappy with my smile anymore!


  • How beautiful your smiles look and the happiness shows in your eyes! Its a dream to have beautiful teeth I have 1980s teeth with no fillings but a school dentist that pulled them out and they moved. My teeth are more crooked than Lombard street! still smiling tho just not in photos!


  • WOW the results are amazing


  • I have invisalign at the moment and the changes in my teeth are amazing!


  • Impressive changes, really. Well done to you and your daughter! :-)


  • I know of so many people getting Invisalign recently and whilst it is not the most effective treatment for me I am in the process of getting braces.


  • Having straight teeth is definitely a confidence booster unfortunately dental treatment is really expensive so not everyone can afford it.


  • Glad you feel so confident now, but to be honest, I think both of your smile and teeth were already beautiful before treatment !
