My Invisalign Experience

Happy Friday everyone! 
I know I usually just share my daily outfits with you, but recently, I started Invisalign and wanted to document the process for anyone who might be considering it. So, let's start from the beginning. I've always been happy with my smile.  While it's not perfect, it was never something that made me insecure. But when I started doing YouTube videos, I noticed that the way I see myself in the mirror isn't the way other people see me. As soon as I watched myself talking in videos I thought, wow, my smile kind of bothers me. My bottom teeth are a bit scattered and it's really noticeable when I talk.  I didn't want or need  "perfection" - just a smile that I could feel confident  about.   Luckily, I discovered Dr. Yana Shampanski.  When I first walked into her "Invisalounge" I knew I had made the right choice.  She immediately made me feel at ease, like a reassuring friend.  Dr. Yana is a true Invisalign specialist, with the knowledge and years of experience to get the job done right.   And did I mention that her office is in the heart of Beverly Hills in a gorgeous penthouse overlooking the city?  No, this is no ordinary dentist office.  Dr. Yana is a cut above the rest and, after wearing Invisalign for about 8 weeks, I'm so glad that I got them.  I can already notice my smile changing and I couldn't be happier!

Be sure to check out my Q & A video with Dr. Yana that answers some frequently asked questions about Invisalign. And you can check her out in a "Dynamic Woman" feature in latest issue of Angeleno Magazine! Also, I will be sharing Part 2 of my Invisalign Diary in another video when I am half way through with the process, so be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don't miss it! I hope this is helpful. 

Thanks so much for reading & have a great weekend! 


  1. I've had to have a LOT of work done on my smile and as you know now, it's so worth it! Feeling confident about your teeth is very important. So glad you're loving your new look!

    1. Thanks so much, Kathleen! It's really exciting. I'm glad that you enjoyed the process too.

  2. I am starting Invisalign treatment on February 10th, 2016. This was a helpful article. For those of you considering getting Invisalign, I have made an Invisalign Journey VLOG. It answers many of the questions people have initially before starting with Invisalign. Check it out if you want!
