I’m not sure many people will notice the change in my teeth after my braces come off, because my teeth were lined up pretty well–thanks to my first time around on braces, as a teen. My problem is with my bite; teeth grinding down the front teeth, and tooth getting chipped.

By the way, I’m using Damon braces, which are supposed to allow for faster and less painful treatment.
