Time flies so quickly! It felt like only yesterday when I just started my Invisalign journey at Orchard Scotts Dental (OSD) clinic. If you read the first blog post I wrote a year ago,  you've probably seen how crooked my teeth were. I also shared about how uncomfortable I felt when I had to smile for the camera, and how much I dreamed of having a beautiful Hollywood smile. That dream will finally become true in about 8 weeks when I finish my 30th aligner.

In fact, I don't really need to wait till aligner No. 30, I can now happily share with you my new smile after one and a half year.

Are you ready?

At my 25th aligner, Dr. Jerry Lim finally removed the attachments on my teeth (as seen on aligner no. 20). These bubble-like attachments act as an anchor point that helps to move the tooth to the desired direction. I'm wearing aligner number 27 now, there are only 3 more to go. I'm so excited and I cannot express how much I love my new smile right now.

From this:

to this after one and a half year?

I must be kidding, you say? But no, I don't. I won't blame you for being doubtful, because I myself can't believe that this is actually happening either. You have no idea how much this new smile has changed my life. I'm much more confident now when I smile, when I talk to people, and especially when I'm interviewed (watch this interview I did with the Clozette team during Digital Fashion Week to see it yourself). The fact that you can see, for the first time on this blog, a photo of myself laughing out loud without worrying about my crooked teeth, is the biggest change by far.  

With all that, I must say "Thank you so much" to Orchard Scotts Dental. Thank you for changing my smile! You have changed my life in a certain way and I don't think I can thank you enough.
Just in case you don't know, OSD is an Invisalign Platinum Elite provider clinic, which announced the launch of the Orchard Scotts Dental Flagship Clinic Powered by Invisalign in June 2014. The clinic has helped more than 700 Singaporeans find and achieve their best smile, including past Miss Universe Singapore winners (OSD has been the Official Dentist for Miss Universe Singapore since 2009). As Smile Architects, Orchard Scotts Dental is a firm believer of constantly growing their expertise and staying at the forefront of aesthetic dentistry technology, to the benefit of their customers. 

With a newly renovated premises, OSD is more than happy (and ready) to welcome you to experience the holistic approached smile-makeover.

On 30th May, I was extremely happy to share on my Instagram a photo I shot for Invisalign and OSD as one of their ambassadors. I wrote "Never in my wildest dream I thought one day I could be a model for a dental clinic. Here I am showing my biggest smile with my going-to-be-perfect teeth in a few months, posing for camera as one of the @invisalign ambassadors. Thank you so much @orchardscottsdental & #Invisalign for the opportunity. I cannot be more grateful and excited about everything." 

These are some photos from the shoot I did with my fellow ambassadors for Invisalign and OSD in May. Don't be surprised if you see them at OSD's clinic and on the website :).

As you can see, it's not so hard to achieve your dream smile, is it? You just need to find a good doctor who will go all the way to make your dream come true. I'm so lucky to have Dr. Jerry Lim (and the OSD team) to help me in this journey. He is such a good, caring, and experienced doctor. Of course, he has a good smile too.
