Braces updates

Revisited the orthodontist last night after work.

Dr Lim mentioned that my upper jaw is starting to expand judging from the cavities I have… -.- Not so much of a pretty sight and cheery gauge but still, nevertheless, am satisfied that things are improving for the better.

For those who have no idea, as I have a Class III jaw type, I need to expand my upper jaw in order for it to ‘jump the bite’ as I have an underbite (lower set of teeth overlapping the upper set).

I can now position the 2 sets of teeth edge to edge without much strain as compared to the past. This effect was almost immediate actually after putting the braces on on my upper set.

I was treated for my cavities too last night and I was whooping mad because I wasn’t told that I have to pay for these extra works. The instalment of $150 per month does not cover that and I wasn’t told of the price for the fillings per tooth. The bill turned out to be $469!!! I was extremely shocked, devastated and angry!!!

I understand that it is known that these extra works are charged separately but I preferred to be informed before any works were carried out.

I had 4 cavities filled and each tooth were 70bucks which amounted to 280bucks!!! Adding on the 150, it’s 430bucks excluding GST. So after including GST, the bomb was 469bucks!!!

AAARRGGHH.

The best thing is, I still have several other cavities to be treated. I know I’m disgusting because I’ve not been visiting the dentist to clean, polish and treat my teeth for several years now… =x

PLEASE DON’T JUDGE ME.

I totally regretted it now and I’ve to suffer the huge financial losses as well as the physical pain. I almost died when the dentist was treating the cavities because the sensitivity is really disturbing, causing major discomfort!!! And that left side is relatively less severe than my right. I cannot imagine the trauma I’ve to undergo again the next time the other cavities get treated and the $$$!!!

I regretted doing my braces and I regretted starting this journey, if not I wouldn’t have to spend a huge bomb and the bomb just gets bigger each time. $$$ gone and counting.

But I told myself, I’ve only myself to blame.

Should have taken proper dental care of my teeth and gums.

Should have go ahead with braces when I was younger, so that my parents would be paying them for me… HAHA!

Should have done so many things……………..

SHOULD HAVES.

By the way, just changed into a bigger wire for the braces as well as the rubber brackets. I chose red for this coming CNY! HAHA!

Psst, the other colours are not appealing anyway. Limited choices. 😦

Anyway, this is the comparison of the movement and position of my teeth.

I do see some movements and improvements for such a short period of time – 4 weeks’ difference.

You can see that the crooked tooth of the 2 front teeth is moving as the gap between the top and bottom is now smaller.

Also, the other bigger circle shows that my tooth is moving forward as well, to a better position and alignment with all the other teeth.

VERY HAPPY.

I HOPE TO ‘JUMP TO BITE’ SOON.

Beauty Reviews – Bellabox.sg July Edition

Picture

Purchased my first Bellabox! It’s going for $19.90 per box/mth now.For those who have no idea on this, Bellabox mails out beauty products in a box every month to your doorstep, with a monthly subscription of $19.90. You may wish to opt for 3-month subscriptions and so on.

It’s really a box full of surprises – which, well, can go both ways (good or bad)…

Below are what was given. I was told that they cater to your personal preferences and needs as their website do keep a record of your skin problems as well as interests.

However, I’m quite doubtful because so far, I’ve seen only 1 box that has 1 different item compared to mine as well as many other bloggers. Google and you will know.

But anyways, here they are.

Pretty outer packing

Sturdy box the loots came in. Simple and classic.

Sorry for the blurred picture. Love the bright fuchsia tracing paper and BB’s own sticker!

The BEST loots of them all thus far 🙂 Feel that only these are worth the $19.90.

I HATE THIS PERFUME! OH GOD IT STINKS LIKE HELL!
Picture

Doubt I will be using this BB Cream. I don’t use BB cream anyway.
Picture

And doubt this little thing is gonna help in removing white heads and black heads. You are still required to squeeze them out after that which is bad because it enlarges your pores even further. What a vicious cycle.
There is actually some twistband for hair tie which I’d thought it was rather useless? As well as BB’s own lipstick shape pen… -.-I’ve read and googled on the other monthly Bellaboxes and am so upset that my first subscription is a huge disappointment. And I do mean HUGE!!! So many useless stuffs with those brochures etc. UGH.

There were other loots in other months such as Essential conditioner and hair shampoo, Biotherm lotions, Sally Hansen nail care products, OPI products, Elizabeth Arden, Ralph Lauren perfume (!!!), Lancome, Kiehls… Well you get the drift.

It simply just means that the July one sucked and of course, I’m not the only one saying this. There were many other reviews that reflected subscribers’ disappointment.

It’s really not value for money. Maybe I’m just pure unlucky. I might just try for August’s edition again, if well, my piggy bank permits although $19.90 isn’t a huge sum of money, but I’ve been overspending… as usual =P

I’m still waiting for my VanityTrove August edition…. Actually, I’ve read lots of complaints on slow response and late deliveries. And true enough, Aug’s edition will only be mailed out 27th July onwards and I paid on 2nd July (had them clarified that 2nd July’s payment is for Aug Trove. July’s Trove is closed on the 14th of June. 15th June onwards payment is for the following month’s trove.)

Apparently, delivery of the Aug trove will have a slight delay as one of the products have just arrived…

Bad 1st impression.

Seriously, am I just pure unlucky or what?!
