Hi, we're Pablo and Shelby, and we've both either been through or are currently in the Invisalign trenches. Pablo is currently on his sixth month of wearing trays, and Shelby wore them for almost three whole years.
Before either of us began this ~new~ smile journey, we had about a billion questions each that could best be answered by those who actually wore them before. Here's Pablo begging for Shelby's advice during work:
So whether you're considering getting Invisalign, or you just got them and have a burning question, we're here to help you in any way that we can.
Perhaps you want to know how much of a hole this treatment made in our wallets and whether or not this investment is worth it.
Or you're curious about how bearable the pain was for us (if there was any at all).
Maybe you just heard about Interproximal Reduction (IPR) during Invisalign, aka the process of “shaving” or “filing” teeth, and want to know if this is as miserable as it sounds.
Or perhaps you want to know how long it took for our speech to return to normal.
Whatever it is, we want to help you in any way we can! Leave us your Invisalign questions in a comment below and your question just might get answered in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
