Goodbye Braces

I have my teeth back. Hooray! On Monday morning I had a 9am appointment to have my braces removed, and it's fair to say I was rather excited! I've dedicated an entire post to my braces here, but for today's post I thought I'd do a little update...

Okay, so the actual removal process is not painful in the slightest, and it's honestly so quick. My orthodontist just used a tool similar to pliers to remove the brackets. He then used a little electric machine to remove the glue from my teeth - this didn't hurt either.

I then had moulds taken for my retainers, and a few photos taken to compare with the initial photos. It was honestly such a quick and painless process! I can't believe how different my teeth look - the change is incredible.

It's great to eat a meal without getting food stuck in my braces, and I've never described a teeth brushing experience as fabulous, but I have since I've had them taken off. I'm excited to eat all the sugary foods and drink all the juice and smoothies now though!

(P.S. I know the above photo is from Instagram, but that's okay - right?)


  1. You're teeth look amazing and so white! :)
    I remember when I had my braces off and it was so nice to run my tongue over my teeth and them being very smooth! :)

  4. Aww your teeth look so lovely! :)
    Please remember to wear your retainer as I stopped and it's one of my biggest regrets, some of my teeth moved back! :(

  5. You teeth look amazing! You're so lucky to have yours off, I've had mine for about 3 years now and I still don't know when they're coming off!
