Carinn x Invisalign: 10 Months Teeth Progress (End of Invisalign 1.0 Treatment)

In a blink of an eye, I've been on my Invisalign treatment for 10 months now (a year, if you include the waiting process for the ClinCheck and mould to arrive). It's been nothing but a comfortable experience so far and I'm happy to see my confidence increase more and more as time goes by. I might sound quite conceited for saying this, but for people who know me, I never used to smile with my teeth showing because I was conscious about how my teeth looked. It's not the straight, pearly whites that most lucky people are blessed with. But I'm glad that I'm more confident smiling in photos now! I love smiling, looking "cool" doesn't suit me that well.

Carinn x Invisalign: Painkillers for my Teeth?

Uh, I'm on medication... for my teeth. Remember when I said that my teeth hurt? Turns out, it's not just because of the teeth whitening.. Anyway, I'm on my 38th pair of aligners and during my last follow-up, my orthodontist realised that my two front teeth are a bit discoloured. He asked if I have experienced any tooth injuries lately, but I haven't. He then advised me not to wear my aligners anymore and go on painkillers for 2 days. o.o
