Life changing decision - BRACES pt.1!!

Hello y'all!
I have an announcement to make! 

NOOOOO I'M NOT GETTING MARRIED
:p
...
..





I'VE GOT BRACES!! :D






Okay I don't know what I'm being so excited about lol why am I even blogging this anyways :3 
Just that I've received couple of questions & fb msgs about it so I thought I would share it once and for all with you guys. 


You may or may not know that I have this super hideous teeth.
 If you happen to be my friends in real life (how bad luck of you), of course you would know
If you'd only seen me on the Internet, from all the photos I posted. 
YOU HAVE NO IDEAAAAAAAAAAA  how ugly me teeth is :/ 

They're like extremely unsystematicAH HAHAHHAHA what a word.
Crooked, untidy, and troublesome.

NOW YOU KNOWWWWWW why I never smiled in my photos;
NOW YOU KNOWWWW why I never greeted people with a friendly smiley facey;
NOW YOU KNOWWWWW why I've been so ashamed of myself, don't even dare to talk;
NOW YOU KNOWWWWW I am ugly when I say I am.    :3

Eh having to keep your mouth closed is more tired than you think. Some more I was born to be such talkative.
Also, having the same expression in every single photo sicks me out, walao, sometimes I wanna do like rocker pattern also cant.
SO I DECIDED TO CHANGE THIS CLOSED-MOUTH ANGEL's DESTINY.



I once asked my dentist(in Butterworth, around where I stay)  if he can do braces for me, he refused to.
Cos he said my teeth is very messy, hard to handle, and filthy . He asked me to go Penang do.
PUTOOOO. What kind of dentist is this hahahahahaha!!
Then yea, so I went to get them done @  Looi Orthodontic.

Looi Orthodontic is quite famous at Penang so I figured I'd go for consultation.
Here's the braces procedure:

#1 Consultation for about 10 minute. 
The orthodontist will explain to you about some basic stuff, like very very basic it was actually a waste of time.  Price, duration, and all the other important information could not be answered till you truly decided you wanna go for it.

#2 Only come back if you've decided to put them metals on!  This appointment is for X-ray scanning, have some photos taken, and doing the model thingy for your teeth.  Oh!  RM290 paid for the X-ray too. 

#3  Go see the X-ray of your ugly teeth and have the orthodontist to explain how troublesome it is LOLOLOL! 
For example, how many tooth you have to extract, do fillings, scaling and all these.  At this appointment you'll be let know the total price your braces gonna cost and if you're serious about doing, RM1k have to be paid for confirmation purpose.  Braces duration is uncertain yet because it depends mostly on your teeth anyway. 

I always knew my teeth ugly but .. I dono its THIS ugly :/
Sorry to make you look at this HAHAHHAHA.


T_____T    hao ee xing.

Well the good news is neither tooth pulling or filling I have to do. Only scaling hehehe.
代表我不用拔牙ok  看朋友拔四顆八顆的看到都痛了


#4  The moment you been waiting for is here. The day you put on the braces lah! 
Also have to pay for another rm1k minimum.  Then rest can pay every following month your visit for checkups.
Thats all.

At the clinic hohoho.


Oh ya, mine cost rm4500.  But then I have this trouble thing in my teeth so a pin(rm350) is needed.
Total iz rm4850,   not sure if include retainer or not.
:D 


Guess whos the braces bloggahhhhihhhhh!? 
Took some photos the other day after an outing with the girls, didn't want to waste the makeup.
I've got more to post gok but some Q&A time first!


Q&A

Q: Do they hurt?
A: Yes so much like a motherchucker.  They didn't hurt at first but till you wake up the next morning.  Damn it.  Perhaps that is what hell feels like.  The sore is not only from the teeth, but deep inside tothe teeth's bone, its like you cannot touch any of them at all.  For 3 whole days, I did not bite my teeth together lol tried so hard to keep distance between them. Till the 7th day they started getting better.

Q: Can you eat with braces on? 
A: Yes you can, but the first few days you might wanna go for softer foods . For the first seven days that got me tortured like fuck, all I had was MeeShua (麵線) and KFC's mashed potato, and frozen yogurt to keep myself happy. After the pain is gone, KFC CHICKEN KITKATS BISCUITS all no problem. Gehehehe so don't expect to slim down yo.

Q: Can you be able to talk normally?
A:  This wouldn't be a problem once you get used to it. For the first few days might feel a little uncomfortable but it will not affect your speech or voice at all, maybe sometimes 漏風 a bit trololol.

Q: Should I do it now or in future?
A:  DO IT AS FAST AS YOU POSSIBLY COULD.  REALLY. You have no idea how regretful I am. Ugh! 19 and wearing braces. I started so late because of some personal issues lol money issues I mean! A few thousands are not cheap ma, furthermore I never thought teeth would be so important like wutttt.   Most of my friends have got over with it already here I am, just the beginning,  BUT, 
don't get frustrated, at least I'm on the road. Don't judge I love you.

Q:  Is it worth it? With the price to pay(both money and pain)?
A: I'm not at the right place to comment cos I haven't gotten everything done yet but click this link and take a look, then tell me whether you think its worth it or not.  There were nights when the pain kept me up, I doubted whether its a right thing to do or nah. I even told my mother I wanted to get it off on the 4th day lolol cos the pain is too horrifying!!  But I didn't, so, yeah. Hopefully my willpower stays still every month after the tightening, its gonna hurt several days every month. Its like another menstrual to girls lol.



At least now I dare to smile showing my teeth. Tho they're not perfect (yet) but it feels good to know youre on the way there.



Thats all I have to say.
If you're thinking to get them, go get'em; if you were born with perfect teeth and reading, BE GRATEFUL YO!
Oh ya, did I mention the reason of me doing this is because Im afraid I cannot smile wide/grin in my future's wedding photos? HAHHAHAHAHAHAHA SHALLOW GOAY.




Lastly I'm going to post all the other lame photos I took the other day. Close the tab already if you're not digging it
Just being a girl, don't mind me xx 









 Makeup well spent lol.  Still werking it with braces. Gurllllllllllllll :p
Bad quality tho cos I edited with VSCO on the phone only transferred here.






Enough for today!  Thanks for reading buh bye xx

  7. Your teeth weren't terrible, in fact, my teeth arrangement is slightly similar, though more aligned. A few of my teeth are slightly in the back possibly to make way for all my wisdom teeth which I a was able to keep as a result. I with your tooth structure as it is, you shouldn't be wearing braces for that much longer. You do have an awesome and before smile though if I must add.

  11. That was a very informative and funny blog to read! It was very informative, since you were able to share the process that you underwent and funny since you called your teeth ugly. I beg to disagree though, as I think they're kinda cute. Anyway, having braces can be a life-changing decision for some, as it costs time, effort, and money to maintain to the end. I will definitely go back to your blog. Good luck!

  36. Crooked teeth can be a real problem, which gives ugly structure
    no matter how old you are or what condition your mouth is in.
    The biggest blow is to self-esteem, because misaligned and unusually placed teeth are considered to be inferior.
    feel shy to speak when teeth gives bad appearance in the face
    Even if a patient has great oral hygiene, it doesn’t stop people from making negative judgements about crooked gnashers.
    This is why dentists keep such a close eye on the development of adult teeth, in children.
    As soon as the permanent teeth have begun to emerge, their growth and formation can be tracked, in order to make sure that they are completely healthy.
    If crooked teeth are found, childhood is the perfect time for corrective measures to be put in place.


    you should get better guidance from the better doctor and choose best dental clinic like royse city dental
