    Don't you change them every 2 weeks?

    I had them, I found there were a few places that it would rub the gum too. If I couldn't file it enough I would actually just snip them a but with scissors, then file it smooth.

    I paid $6K for mine, and had a tooth pulled too (in the front bottom to make room). I had to have my top front teeth filed in between to make room too, as my problem was over crowding.

    It took 18 months all up, and it's the best thing I've ever done! I love my teeth now and it's given me so much more confidence. No one ever noticed I was wearing them either

    I'll post a before and after pic in a sec.

    So here's my before and after. Sorry, I couldn't find very good pics!

    My top front teeth are still slightly overlapped, as I had such severe over crowding (the ortho said one of the worst he's treated :/) ...they had to file 4mm of space between my 4 top front teeth to make room! It could have been fully corrected by getting braces and removing two molar teeth, but I really didn't want to do that!

    wow WOW wow sam4frankie!! No wonder you were so happy with your results! Your teeth look absolutely amazing!

    I had clear braces when I was in my early teens. My bottom teeth have started to crowd slightly again (I have no idea how... I had a bunch of teeth out!) but nothing really that noticeable.

    I agree with the others in saying that I should have gone for the metal braces as the clear ones stained easily.

    I'd definitely consider something like invisalign if the need ever arises in the future!
