Not so perfect smile

I have always wanted perfect teeth. I suffered from spacing between many teeth and that always made me so self-conscious. For the longest time, I would only smile with my mouth closed because I was so ashamed of my teeth. People around me never understand why I hated my teeth so much but this was a constant battle I had with myself that I never won. I’ve looked into getting braces but could not wrap my head around the thousands of dollars I’d need to have that perfect smile I’ve always wanted. Although I hated my teeth and my smile, I thought I’d do a lot better by smiling with a closed mouth rather than spending a few thousand dollars on a new smile.

Time passed and I eventually got to the point where I decided I needed to make a change. I needed to figure out a way to be happy with my teeth and my smile. I decided that I needed to do what would really make me happy. I needed a new smile!

Night Helper Blog

For years now, I’ve followed the Night Helper Blog and loved it! Lisa, who is the owner of the blog, would write cool, interesting and fun reviews on such a widespread of items. I’ve followed her journey from the early 2000’s until now and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it! Lisa has done a ton of reviews on items that I’ve actually purchased. Some things I’d never in a million years consider purchasing but due to her excellent reviews, I can say that all of the items that I have bought based on her reviews have been great purchases!

Say cheese!Now back to this perfect smile that I desired so badly. I really wanted a perfect smile but due to my budget I knew I couldn’t’ afford the metal braces. To be honest, I didn’t want the restrictions of what I could and couldn’t eat. I wanted to be free; I wanted something undetectable. I wanted something clear that would correct my not so perfect smile. So I researched and heard about ClearCorrect. This provider seemed to have the ability to cater to all my desires of gaining a perfect smile.

You see, ClearCorrect  is a company that develops clear, custom, removable dental aligners used by dentists and orthodontists to straighten patients’ teeth. The devices move the teeth a little bit at a time, eventually resulting in straight teeth. Established in 2006, the Round Rock, Texas based company distributes their product throughout the United States and in 2011 was named the fastest-growing health company in America by Inc. magazine.

After doing much research, I found out that a dentist near my home offered ClearCorrect.  So I reached out to Dr. Najwa Shaja and Peter M. at Caring Dentistry in Michigan. Both Dr. Shaja and Peter were so very nice and pleasant when they addressed all of my concerns and questions.

Dr. Najwa Shaja is a Southeast Michigan dentist. Najwa Shaja, DDS is a renowned expert in the field of general and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Shaja has a passion for dental health and always strives to offer the best quality of care to all her patients. Dr. Shaja has been privileged to offer her expert advice on many advanced techniques and continues to mentor her staff on the latest dental care products and procedures. You can always read more about her expertise here.

Soon, I was preparing to have Dr. Shaja examine my teeth to see if I would be a good candidate for the ClearCorrect clear aligners. I immediately scheduled a consultation and before long Dr. Shaja’s team examined my teeth and confirmed that I was a great match for their ClearCorrect procedure.  After getting details from my exam, I quickly tried to figure out what I could do to obtain my new smile.

Back to the Night Helper Blog
Now, I knew Lisa had great opportunities so I decided to reach out to see if there was anything she could possibly do for me. A few weeks passed and Lisa contacted me and told me she had great news! Next thing I knew, ClearCorrect had agreed to sponsor my treatment and the Night Helper Blog, and I were preparing to begin a project that would change my life forever!

My life with ClearCorrect
Things took off fast! I went back into the dentist about a week later to have impressions done for my custom aligners.

After a few weeks, the aligners were back and ready for me! As you can see from the images below, my Clear Correct aligners are in on the bottom and top of my teeth. This is currently my phase of aligners and I must say, I’m thrilled to be a part of this journey to obtaining my perfect smile. It feels a little weird wearing the aligners but what amazes me the most is no one would ever  know I am wearing them because they are so clear. Please be advise too that most patients won’t be able to see any change in their teeth within the first 2-3 weeks.

I know my journey will be long but I can’t wait to share more images and more details on how ClearCorrect aligners are working on my teeth.
Stay tune to my next post, I will show you how far my teeth have come since using my first set of ClearCorrect aligners!

    Such a beautiful smile. I admit I wish I had the courage to do this but because of you I might just give it a try. You are truly an inspiration.

  2. I wonder if this product will eventually take the place and work faster than braces? I think teenagers would rather wear ClearCorrect than have a bunch of metal in their mouth. Of course, I am assuming that these would help them too. Maybe that is something you can mention in your next progressive article. I’d love to see your progress also!

  3. Can’t wait to see your new beautiful smile! Your article on ClearCorrect Aligners is fascinating to say the least! Hoping for an update soon 🙂

  4. Thank you for such a great post! With so many items on the market today that can do damage instead of good, its nice to see one cover an area that needs publicity. And what a beautiful smile you have, great results.

  5. Sherry Compton on

  13. Your research and all your hard work is paying off! They look amazing!!
    I have always thought that teeth were a big part of a beautiful smile! I am so HAPPY for you!! I used to have a beautiful smile and set of teeth, but with the bone cancer, all the poisonous treatments and now Diabetes, I am actually loosing teeth! I had oral surgery in January to remove a tooth. That’s the second time I had oral surgery to remove a tooth in the last couple of years! Believe me, I could go on and tell you the story behind that one, but A few people found it hard to believe – but it DID happen! Not taking care of your teeth can be a huge health hazard!! Take care!
