I have worn braces for close to three years of my life yet I was still unsatisfied with my smile. I received braces for the first time when in middle school. Initially I was very happy with the results, but unfortunately my teeth shifted out of alignment when the braces were removed. A few months later, a second set of braces were applied; I even had splints placed behind my front teeth to keep them aligned after the second set of braces were removed. However my teeth shifted once again, and I truly believed I was going to be self-conscious about my smile for the rest of my life. Though the thought of receiving braces for the third time in my life was not at all comforting, I decided to discuss the matter with Dr. Resek. I left the office very excited and anxious to get started because Dr. Resek was optimistic that he’d be able to provide the smile I was looking for in a minimal amount of time. He was right! After only five months, my braces are off, and I’m as happy with my smile as I’ve ever been. I’m hopeful that the third time truly is a charm, and that the smile I’ve been waiting for is here to stay.
