I made the decision to get Wonder Smile aligners as an adult because
although my teeth have always looked pretty OK on camera;
I’ve had continuous issues with my bite and
jaw after having traditional metal braces while I was 14 years old.
Plus, I noticed my teeth started to shift rapidly once
I entered my 20s(also the time when I kissed goodbye to chewing gums).
So, I decided to take the shot and get some adult orthodonture.
Throughout your dental journey,
you would only need one initial consultation with an orthodontist
for a 3D scan of your teeth to determine the eligibility and
allow us an in-depth look into the current status of your teeth.
And from there,
they will email you your prescribed treatment plan and
ship the aligner kit direct to your home
within 10 business days after your consultation date!
Your treatment option:
1.) All Day Aligner: 20 hours a day, appx. 6 months duration
2.) NightClear: 10 hours a day, appx. 10 months duration
Due to work nature, I have to talk and social a lot.
Choosing NightClear is more convenient
because I don’t need to remove them when eating or drinking during the day.
Also, no one has to see me wearing them
because I only wear them at nighttime!
The aligners are custom-made and fit directly onto your teeth,
shifting them into position. They’re kind of like retainers,
except you wear them all day
as opposed to just at night for 10 hours.
(Unfortunately due to medical reasons,
you must be under the age of 45 for
The scan is then sent to our orthodontics team and lab where it is this option).
It’s highly recommended that you don’t drink
anything other than water when you have your aligner in,
especially coffee, tea, and sugary beverages like juice and wine.
What’s in the box?
Each Wonder Smile Aligner Kit includes:
Invisible Aligner Guide, Customized Aligners,
Emery board, Retainer, Chewies, Case, and Hooks
It’s going to hurt sometimes!
Whenever I put in a new tray (every 3 weeks),
I can count on it being tight and my teeth feeling sore for the first two or three days.
In other words, if you feel the soreness,
meaning that the new aligner tray you wear is starting to
shift your teeth into proper position.
My projected timeline is 10 months and I’m coming up
on finishing my fifth refinement (4.5 months now);
chances are I’m still going to need more,
and I don’t plan on quitting.
It has greatly improved my smile, bite, and alleviated some jaw pain.
After all, I’ve made this far. And here comes to another fruitful year. 🎊🎉
Note: please consult with an orthodontist before deciding to pursue aligner or any other orthodontic treatment.
