become invisible braces are tight-fitting, custom-made clear plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth to their desired position to achieve your award-winning dream smile. It sure sounds easy but what is it like to use become every day? We’ve broken it down for you:

You’ll (sorta) see into the future

Wonder what your teeth will look like when you’re done with your become journey? Don’t have to wonder further – we’ll show you!

When you get a scan at our partner clinic, our partner dentists at the labs will review your teeth alignment and create a 3D model of your new smile – so you can see what it’ll look like before you start your become Journey. With this, you only commit to paying for your invisible braces if you’re satisfied with the smile preview. That’s why we’re really 100% commitment-free!

Meeting your invisible braces

You’ll basically wear your invisible braces every moment of every day and night for a minimum of 22 hours. The only time they’ll be taken is out is when you have meals and drinks. That’s how often you have to wear them – but don’t worry, you’ll get used to it!

Your invisible braces are transparent and clear – so no one can see them. They work silently to help you get your dream smile.

Although it’s important to take note that whenever you’re not wearing your invisible braces, you’re letting your teeth shift back to their old position. Wear your invisible braces as instructed for the best results. 

Rinse and repeat

Remember when we mentioned that you have to take your invisible braces out before you start eating and drinking? But, when you slide them back in – you’ll need to rinse them to keep them clean and transparent.

This will be part of a routine for you during your become Journey. It seems like a hassle but it’s very important that you do not skip this step.

You’ll be watching the calendar

You will have to change your invisible braces pair every two weeks as you won’t be wearing the same pair throughout your entire become Journey

Remember to keep track on the calendar as changing out your invisible braces at the right time is important to ensure that the smile correction progresses smoothly and you get the best results.

Pain is part of the process

While you are wearing your invisible braces, you may experience some discomfort and minor pain. It is totally normal. 

This is because the aligners move your teeth and your teeth don’t like being shifted around. But the pain is good. It means that your teeth aligning is working – after all the common saying is no pain, no gain.

However, if the pain continues to worsen – please reach out to our smile consultants and they’ll be happy to help.

Meeting your after-braces BFF – Retainers

Once you’ve completed all your invisible braces sets, it is essential to wear your pair of retainers. We know it’s tedious having to wear another contraption in your mouth even after you’re done with your smile correction but this is crucial!

Without reminding your teeth to stay put, they’ll shift back to their old position, thus changing your smile back to the old one.

For the first 3 months after your teeth has been straightened, you’ll be wearing your retainers all the time. After that, you will only need to wear your retainers at night.

Ready to get started?

We’ve explained it all and now it’s your turn to start your smile journey! Take our smile assessment to find out how to get this whole thing moving.

Teeth straightening is a big step for most and there are plenty of options to choose from. Searching for teeth straightening options online results in an overwhelming number of choices, ranging from traditional metal braces, to ceramic or clear braces, to newer invisible braces that are prescribed at the dentist clinic or can be purchased online as a teeth straightening kit and shipped to your house.

But when it comes down to it, your options come in just two main types: conventional fixed appliances such as metal or ceramic braces, or removable invisible braces.

Traditional braces

The upside: Can treat most orthodontic issues, is easily accessible and affordable

The downside: They are a fixed appliance; which means they cannot be removed until after the treatment is complete, can irritate gums and cheeks, extra oral care is needed to prevent cavities and other oral problems.

Results in: Varies by person; 1 year to 4 years

Cost: Between ₱30,000 – ₱80,000

Traditional braces work by using pressure to move your teeth into a desired position. There’s a reason they are commonly used: they work for everything from fixing teeth that are crooked, crowded or spaced out to correcting an overbite or underbite. But braces aren’t all metal mouth and elastic bands anymore as what they were back then. There are now a number of braces options available in the market such as:

Metal braces:These are the traditional and most common braces — they consist of metal brackets with wires held by elastic ties.

Damon/Self-litigating braces: Like traditional metal braces, but they use a sliding device to hold the wire instead of elastic ties. They usually have a ceramic bracket option that are less visibly obvious compared to metal braces

It is important to note that there are certain cases that can be best fixed with traditional braces, and there are some cases that are actually fixed best with invisible braces.

Invisible braces

The upside:  For mild to moderate cases, invisible braces can be more affordable than traditional braces, less noticeable than traditional braces, removable – thus allowing eating, drinking and maintaining oral hygiene easier

The downside: Must be worn for a proper amount of time each day throughout the process to be effective at straightening teeth, may cost significantly more than traditional braces, as they are removable – may be easily misplaced

Results in: Varies by person; 6 months to 2 years

Cost: Between ₱65,250 – ₱250,000

Invisalign introduced invisible braces to the market in 1997 and since then, over two dozen companies have followed. Invisible braces are plastic trays that are custom-made to be fitted to your teeth based on the mould of your teeth or the 3D scan of your mouth. Each pair of invisible braces put pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into their desired position. Invisible braces are removable when eating, drinking or brushing teeth but they will need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day in order to be effectively straightening teeth.

Most people have been discouraged from straightening their teeth as braces might not be the most ideal method and invisible braces prescribed at orthodontic clinics are extremely costly and not easily accessible to most people. Today, direct-to-consumer brands are making it easier for everyone to straighten their teeth with customized invisible braces at affordable prices with almost no clinic visits.

How do I know what’s right for me?

The two options explained above work well for the cases they are intended to fix but for some, the direct-to-consumer invisible braces is every bit as effective as any alternatives that are prescribed in the clinic.

Everyone needs a little TLC – and so do your invisible braces. As you’ll be wearing your invisible braces pretty much all the time, we’re here to give you some tips on how to take care of them so they stay clean, clear and comfortable to wear!

Rinse and Repeat

The only time you’ll remove your invisible braces is when you eat, drink and brush your teeth. Before putting your them back into your mouth, rinse your invisible braces with cold water to keep them clean. This will prevent dried saliva from building up on the invisible braces, which can cause bacteria to form. Keep your mouth healthy by keeping your invisible braces clean. However, avoid rinsing your invisible braces in hot water. The high heat can damage the plastic and ruin your invisible braces.

Brush & Floss before wearing

After you eat, make sure to brush and floss your teeth before putting your invisible braces back in. If you don’t, food particles can get trapped between your invisible braces and your teeth, which can lead to dental problems. Remember, a clean mouth is a happy mouth – plus you don’t want that piece of spinach stuck in your teeth for the world to see 😉

Clean with soap, not toothpaste.

To clean your invisible braces, remember to use clear antibacterial soap and not toothpaste. Toothpaste can be abrasive against the thermoplastic, which may scratch your invisible braces – and coloured antibacterial soaps may stain your invisible braces into a different colour. We know that invisible braces are favoured for their transparency and scratches can be easily visible when wearing them on your teeth. So keep them transparent and clear by cleaning them the proper way!

Keep it in

When you take your invisible braces off to eat and drink, remember to store them away in the storage capsule included with your invisible braces set. Leaving your invisible braces in the open exposes them to harmful germs and bacteria – and you also risk misplacing them by accident!

Invisible braces can be a great way to straighten your smile discreetly. Taking the time to properly clean and care for your invisible braces can help smoothen your smile journey to get the smile of your dreams. become makes it easy for you to straighten your smile with invisible braces at 65% less than other methods. Your treatment will be prescribed and monitored remotely by our orthodontist team so you’ll never have to step foot into a clinic. Take our free 30s Smile Assessment to see if our invisible braces are a good fit for you!

Huzzah! It’s the end of your smile journey with become and we know you’re super excited to share your new smile with the world – or at least with your followers on social media. We’ve got some selfie photography tips for you to celebrate your new smile with the perfect “after” photo. Check out these simple tips on how you can show off your gorgeous new smile!

Lights, camera, SMILE!

Good lighting is crucial for a good photo and ideally you would want to have your picture taken somewhere with lots of natural lighting to show off your pearly whites. Try standing in front of a window so the natural light is hitting your face and not from behind you which could cause a dark silhouette of your face in the photo. However, take note that lots of lighting could also be a bad thing! Having too much light can also cause your photos to be overexposed.

Keep it simple

Your background should ideally be simple and clean from any clutter or mess so it doesn’t distract from your face. We want your smile and face to be the center of attention so keep your background and composition simple!

Be yourself

This photo is all about you and for your personality to shine through! Wear your favourite clothes, add some accessories,  or have your location backdrop in a place you love. Your selfie is unique to YOU so have fun with it!

Have some handy props

Posing with items or even a pet can add a lot of personality to your photo (and also comes in handy when you’re feeling shy). Hold your favourite mug, hug your pet or even pose with your favourite plate of food!

Minimal filters

You have a new smile and you’re loving it. You feel super confident and ready to take on anything and we know it’s tempting to add a LOT of filters into your selfie. Keep your filters to a minimum for a more natural selfie that shows off your brand new smile and embrace your confident self! If you do have to edit, keep it minimal to add some exposure to your photos or add a small bit of colour saturation.

BONUS: Have a before and after selfie

Planning to show off your before and after transformation in a selfie? We recommend that you have both photos look consistent by framing them similarly with the same backdrop so your transformation can be seen clearly. You can also choose to have the same hairstyle and clothing in both your selfies too!

Finished your treatment with become? Send us your best after selfie to hello@become.my and we’ll feature it on our site! We love seeing our customers showing off their new grin.

If you’re looking to get that selfie-worthy smile, take our free 30s smile assessment to see if our become invisible braces treatment is right for you!

How to maintain good oral hygiene

How to maintain good oral hygiene

While maintaining a healthy mouth is a lifelong commitment and might sound like a chore, it’s not that hard at all! Read on for some tips on how you can maintain a good oral hygiene.

We all know that good oral hygiene is important in preventing tooth decay and gingivitis, but research has shown that poor oral care has also been linked to heart disease, dementia, respiratory infections and diabetes. While maintaining a healthy mouth is a lifelong commitment and might sound like a chore, it’s not that hard at all! 

Don’t Give It a Brush-off

Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly with tap water every time you use it. Let your toothbrush dry thoroughly between brushings. Don’t use toothbrush covers, which can create a moist enclosed breeding ground for bacteria.

What’s in Between

Nothing cleans in between the teeth better than floss or interdental brushes. A fine-bristle toothbrush just won’t cut it. Floss and interdental brushes work by removing food trapped between the teeth and removing plaque that forms there before it turns into tartar. They also clean under the gum line, which is an important step to prevent gum disease. 

Prevent Oral Injury

While it’s important to clean between the teeth, using toothpicks, fingernails or folded paper may cause friction, damaging the gum line, and not to mention unhygienic. Brushing too vigorously and not replacing your brush when the bristles start to lose their shape can also cause injury to the teeth and gums. Wear mask if you have habit of biting your nails.

Bittersweet Symphony

Snacking has been known as a major culprit in weight gain, but did you know that snacking also promotes the production of plaque acid in the mouth? This is because most snacks contain sugar. Your best bet is to cut down on sugary treats and aim to brush after every meal. The fact that it’s cumbersome to brush after every meal or snack should discourage you from snacking too often.

Pay a Visit, or Pay the Price

It’s important to visit your dentist regularly (recommended every 6 months) for checkups and monitoring. Your dentist can detect any problems at an early stage when they’re treatable and more affordable to take care of. Your dentist is also the best person to advise you on the best tools and techniques suited to you to keep your home oral care up to scratch.

Maintaining a good oral hygiene can be trickier for those wearing metal braces. Plaque and food particles have additional places to accumulate, flossing is only possible with super floss, and brushing takes more effort than ever. This is where invisible braces (teeth aligners) prove to be a better option – oral hygiene is easy since you can simply remove it to brush your teeth and floss as usual.

With become, you now can improve your smile with invisible braces, at a fraction of the clinic cost. Take our free 30s Smile Assessment to see if our invisible braces are a good fit for you!

Crowded Teeth Causes & Solutions

Crowded Teeth Causes & Solutions

Crowded teeth or malocclusion are quite common, and those who grew up suffering from crowded teeth obviously don’t want their children to have to go through the same thing. The question is, can this condition be prevented?

Teeth that aren’t perfectly aligned are unique to you and can add personality and charm to your smile. Crowded teeth or malocclusion are quite common, and those who grew up suffering from crowded teeth obviously don’t want their children to have to go through the same thing. The question is, can this condition be prevented? To answer that question, let’s take a look at what causes crowded teeth in the first place.

What causes crowded teeth?

There are plenty of reasons why our teeth are crooked, some of which are even preventable. It may be genetic, or they may be a result of the way that we live or care for our teeth. Here are some of the most common underlying causes for crooked teeth:

1. Losing baby teeth too early

If a child loses its baby teeth far before the adult teeth are completely ready to grow in, the adult teeth may drift in the gums and end up not growing properly into their spot.

2. Losing baby teeth too late

If a baby tooth is particularly stubborn and doesn’t want to fall out, the permanent tooth may erupt behind it, making a second row of teeth farther back than where it would otherwise be. 

3. Childhood myofunctional habits

Thumb-sucking, mouth-breathing, tongue thrusting and prolonged pacifier or bottle use are common myofunctional habits of young children. These habits can lead to incorrect dental and facial development.

4. Small jaw

As we get older and grow, our teeth and jaw follow suit, but that process doesn’t always run completely smoothly. It’s quite common for people with crowded teeth to have a jaw that’s too small to fit all the adult teeth in a straight, neat line. 

5. Facial injury

A car accident, a fall down the stairs, or an elbow to the face during a rugby game can knock teeth out of place, resulting in one or more crooked teeth. A hard hit to the face can also cause jaw misalignment.

6. Poor dental care

Untreated gum disease and cavities can lead to crooked teeth and other dental health problems, which in the end will make teeth more misaligned. 

How to Treat Crowded Teeth?

The most common treatment for crowded teeth is metal braces as they can fix even severe misalignments. However, for those with only mild to moderate misalignment of their teeth, invisible braces are the best option as they are removable, and allow you to inconspicuously achieve a perfect smile. While there may be some initial discomfort, invisible braces won’t irritate your mouth tissues like metal braces do. 

If you are not sure how severe your teeth misalignment is, you may take our assessment here and see if become invisible braces are the right treatment for you!

What are crowded teeth?

Crowded teeth (also known as malocclusion or crooked teeth) are teeth that are irregularly positioned, or teeth that are not aligned. 

What causes crowded teeth?

This condition is usually inherited but there are some conditions or habits that may change the shape and structure of the jaw such as prolonged use of bottle feeding and thumb sucking in early childhood, losing baby teeth or permanent teeth too early, and mouth breathing.

What are the problems crowded teeth cause?

Think appearance is the only thing affected by crowded teeth? Think again. Crowded teeth can adversely affect your health in ways that might surprise you – stretching beyond your mouth to the rest of your body and even your mind. Let’s explore the issues to understand why we should not ignore crowded teeth.

1. Low self-esteem

Having a crooked smile can really damage a person’s confidence. It can cause them to hide their smiles and feel uncomfortable speaking in public or meeting new people. This will have an impact on their ability to socialise and networking. 

2. Career choice

Whether we like it or not, we are frequently judged by our appearance, and this is even more so in certain industries. People with crowded teeth (or metal braces on) will find it almost impossible to land a job as a flight attendant, model, front desk receptionist or TV host. 

3. Oral health 

It’s hard to brush and floss thoroughly when you have crowded teeth. The challenge in maintaining oral hygiene makes it easier for plaque, tartar and harmful bacteria to build up – and over time, cause tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.

4. Risk of tooth wear and injuries

Crowded teeth often cause some of the bottom teeth to rub against your upper teeth. Over time, this can lead to undue wear of tooth enamel. Meanwhile, protruding upper teeth are more likely to chip or crack in the event of an accident.

5. Other health issue 

Not many people know this, but oral infections may lead to more serious ailments, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and pneumonia. A misaligned bite won’t be able to perform vital functions and lead to other issues. It can cause stress headaches, neck and jaw pain, as well as increased clenching. 

So now you know the problems caused by crowded teeth. The good news is, it’s possible to improve the alignment of your teeth with become invisible braces! If you want to get your teeth straightened without having bulky brackets in your mouth, we have the solution at an affordable price. To determine if you are a good fit for become orthodontic treatment, answer this 5-question assessment.

Shift happens – and when it does, become will be there for you!

Growing up with crooked teeth was the hardest thing. Well, probably the second hardest thing if you wore metal braces in your teen years. All the clinic visits, the painful wire tightenings, the ulcers, the limitation on food choices, the humiliation – you have persisted through all that, motivated by the rewarding thought of a perfect straight pearly whites you’ll be showing off every time you smile. 

10 or 20 years have passed, and now you realise the results don’t last a lifetime. Some of your teeth have returned to their original positions! Looking back, you remember that you were not wearing your retainer diligently following your metal braces removal. Why would you? You’d dealt with chunky metal brackets and wires for two years and you’ve got your teeth straightened, therefore wearing a retainer every night might have seemed unnecessary and cumbersome. 

You wished you could time travel and tell your younger self that your retainer was your secret to long-lasting results and without wearing it, your teeth will most likely shift back into place. So is it too late to fix them now? Is there anything you can still do? Do you have to wear braces again?

Don’t worry. Thanks to become, you don’t have to go through the train track braces ordeal again. Our truly invisible braces can re-straighten your smile and there’s a good chance treatment won’t take as long as it did the first time round. They can restore your confidence as fast as in 6 months’ time!

Not just that, we’re making the experience as hassle-free as possible by delivering your full set of customised invisible braces to you. This time around, you no longer have to waste time at the waiting room and traveling to clinic for appointments. We also cut the middleman cost to make invisible braces affordable for you! 

We trust you to wear your retainers this time to keep your new realigned smile in place 😉

5 Self Care Things You Can Do To Feel Good

At become, we believe everyone should feel good about themselves in order to live confidently so let’s get started with these 5 easy things that you should do for yourself every day.

Self-care doesn’t always mean taking a bubble bath with slices of cucumber on your eyes. An act of self-care can be as simple as washing your face or making your bed – basically anything that makes you feel good.

At become, we believe everyone should feel good about themselves in order to live confidently so let’s get started with these 5 easy things that you should do for yourself every day.

Wash your face

Start your day right by having an easy skincare routine. You will just need 2 products – a cleanser and moisturizer – and less than 5 minutes twice a day to care for your skin. Even when you’re tired after a long day out, taking a few minutes to wash your face after you brush your teeth and pop in your invisible braces will always pay off. Your future self will thank you.

Have breakfast

We know it’s the cliche thing to say that breakfast is the most important meal but it really is! Whether it’s cooking a full breakfast meal or simply grabbing a cereal bar, it’s important to fuel your body to kickstart the day. Having breakfast will help your metabolism and increase your energy levels throughout the day.

Make your bed

It’s a simple act of the day but making your bed sets you up to have a productive day as it’s the first accomplishment of the day. Plus, it’s great to come home to a neat and tidy bed so you can hop in and sleep for the night! This habit is easy enough for anyone to just start immediately today.

Exercise

We’re not saying you have to work out 5–6 times a week to take care of your body – but moving your body with a short jog or swim session is a good enough start to take care of your body. It doesn’t matter what exercise you do as long as you do something to move your body each day. Plus, exercising releases endorphins which are also known as the happy hormone. You will definitely feel better physically and mentally after a workout session!

Create a nighttime routine

Ahh it’s the end of the day and it’s time to wind down before bed. Have a mug of chamomile tea before bed, read a book or even have a nighttime face mask routine. Creating a mini pre-bedtime ritual signals to your body it’s time to unwind and go to sleep. If you have become invisible braces, take this time to properly clean them and don’t forget to pop them in before you sleep! You’ll wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day with a smile.

Taking care of your smile is also another act of self-care you can practice –  and we want you to feel confident with your smile! Take our free smile assessment today and see if you qualify for become invisible braces.
