Oh hey there- it’s just me, taking my own orthodontic impressions. If you all follow me on social media you will know that I am obsessed with teeth- I want straight teeth, white teeth, and perfect teeth. I’ve had braces twice in my life (once in 5th grade and again in middle school-beginning of high school) and I actually had a permanent retainer on my bottom teeth all through high school and college with no issues. A few years ago, my permanent retainer fell out and I just never bothered getting it replaced. Fast forward a few years and my bottom teeth have majorly moved and are starting to become all jacked up. I had heard of Invisalign and the invisible braces before, but I had no idea that a company existed that actually let you do all of your orthodontia virtually! Seriously, Smile Direct is the best idea I’ve ever heard of … they mail you the impression kit at no cost, you take your own impressions and pictures, mail it back in with their pre-paid label and choose your pricing and payment plan options. Since I secretly love teeth and pretending I’m a dentist, this was right up my alley as I felt like an orthodontist taking my own impressions and making the mold for the impression trays.
The best part about all of this is that Smile Direct is offering PIPM readers 50% off their impression kit and a free scan at a Smile Direct Smile Shop (they have 23 open with the closest to me being in Nashville) with code “PIPMEGAN”. Check out Smile Direct on their website here and also see where they have smile shops at this link here.
Thank you to Smile Direct for partnering with me on this project. I am so excited to get my bottom teeth straight again and will be checking in with updates for you all.
