Even though people would say to me that I had a nice smile – my front teeth are straight and I have had them whitened in the past – I was actually really unhappy with my smile. This was mainly due to four gaps (two on each side) which I felt really showed when I smiled. In fact, every time I looked at a photo of myself – be it my wedding photographs or social media snaps – all I could see were these gaps. This was a throwback to when I was 14 years old, when I had four teeth removed. I was supposed to have orthodontic treatment, but unfortunately this never happened.

For some time I had been thinking about trying to get these gaps closed over, and wondered if I might need to have traditional braces to do this. However, through the media and lifestyle magazines, I had heard of “invisible braces” and this captured my imagination.

I decided to approach Vermilion – The Smile Experts, a dental clinic based in Corstorphine, not far from where I live. My aim was to find and discuss whether I could have the smile that I had always dreamed of… the first step towards my exciting new journey!

I was very impressed with my first visit to the clinic. I was welcomed warmly by the reception team and asked to take a seat in their very stylish waiting room. Their red sofa is amazing and I immediately felt at ease and in the right place!
Once I started my orthodontic treatment, the one thing I couldn’t believe is you couldn’t tell I was wearing a brace – it truly was invisible! No one ever asked if I was wearing a brace.

Now that I have finished treatment, the results definitely match my expectations. I am much more confident smiling and I’m really pleased with how everything has turned out. To read Sarah’s full story click here.
