Before + after of teeth makeover | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Before + after of teeth makeover

Sooo remember this post? Where I kind of said really quick how I HATE my teeth?! The front 2 were uneven and had a chip, the two next to them were teeny and had big spaces. I'm probably making it sound like I was an ogre or something, like it probably wasn't that bad or too noticeable (maybe) but to me, it was all I saw in pictures!! Anyways, I wanted to post my little before and after of the bonding my brother, Chris did for me when I was in Iowa. After deciding veneers weren't the smartest purchase while Jason is in school and we have a baby on the way, bonding was the second best option! And holy cow, Chris is a teeth wizard!! This sounds dumb, but I'm actually excited to smile now and show off my teeth haha it's the little things, guys. I googled so many "before and after of teeth bonding" pictures before to get me excited, I don't know how they do it, but it's amazing!

He had to numb my top lip/ gums and I didn't realize he was going to be doing that! He just stuck a needle in and numbed them right up! I'd love to say it wasn't a big deal but for some reason when I felt the poke I had a mini panic attack. I asked if it was a needle and Chris was like "uh, no don't worry, I'm just putting some funny water in your gums to numb them up" and  I BOUGHT IT. Then I looked down and there was a needle like .05" away from my face. So yeah, I got scared and then I got over it and then I looked like I got punched in the face because of my numb fat lip. Also, I believed that he was really putting funny water on my gums. Also, that's what he tells kids when he has to numb them up so they don't freak out (like me). So basically I'm a child haha I just thought that was funny so that's why a whole paragraph is dedicated to it.

Anyways, before and after of my teeth bonding:

I know I JUST posted this picture, but it's a good before!

Jason just snapped this one real quick so excuse my squinty eyes :) 
That difference, though!! So crazy, huh?!

So it slightly sounds like I'm wearing a retainer when I talk because my mouth isn't used to this new volume of teeth taking up space! I googled it (to make sure I wouldn't sound like that forever obvi) and it will take like 3 months for my tongue to develop muscle memory to sound normal. Fun fact of the day!!!!! But it's worth it and I wouldn't even care that much if it lasted forever if it meant I don't have baby teeth anymore. During the process, the dental hygienist kept coming up and saying "hey you look 16 now!!" and when it was all done, she came up and said "wow you look 18 now!!" haha she was the coolest hygienist I've ever met (besides you, Kelsey!!)

Soooo yeah if you've been debating getting teeth bonding DO IT. and if you're in Iowa go to Chris! He has the best funny water out of all the dentists in the world! Just whiten your teeth before because you can't whiten bonding! Don't worry, I checked with my doctor first about whitening during pregnancy and he said it was fine and that my teeth just might be more sensitive to it than usual. I used crest white strips (the same kind from this post) and they made my teeth the whitest that natural teeth can go without bleaching, yay! It was soooo fun bonding with my brother! (had to say it, we were all thinking it!!)

  8. Oh wow I had no clue that bonding did that, but your teeth looked great beforehand too. Nice to have a dentist in the family too! I had needles in my mouth so my dentist has got it down to a science to administer them to me, I've been going to him since I was 9 so he has my pain level down!
