My Invisalign Journey with About Braces Dental Surgery (Part 2)

Hello guys!

I have a really good news to share with you all! Do read till the end of this entry! :)

So I went back to About Braces for my Invisalign check up after 2 months! About Braces Dental Surgery is located at Novena Specialist Center, #06-01!

Waiting for my turn! Spider-man was playing on the television!

Wanted to share with you all something which I find it really nice which I didn't get to take a photo the other time! 

Check out my view when I was lying down and having my check up! If you are someone who is afraid of dental visits, you can get distracted by watching the television while doing your check ups! Awesome?

Me and Dr Vaz! Haha my orthodontist is looking good right ;)

Dr Vaz told me that everything is going well and I can also see the condition of my teeth improving! I really really can't wait to see the final outcome!

And I want to say again that I'm really fortunate to be able to do my Invisalign under Dr Vaz! He has 20 years of experience in Orthodontics and is well-versed in all the various kinds of orthodontic treatment available today. He is also one of the top Invisalign Treating Orthodontists in this country!

I got my another 4 sets of aligners to last for the next 2 months! I'm almost half way through!



A lot of you guys have been asking me how much does the Invisalign cost.. Their standard Invisalign package ranges from $6500.00 to $7300.00!

And now for my blog followers, if you quote my name "Randy" you will get a 10% discount on Invisalign/Braces!

I'm really happy that Dr Vaz has decided to give a special package for my blog and social media followers cause 10% discount is really a lot!

Thank you Dr Vaz and About Braces Dental Surgery!


I'll be continue posting my Invisalign journey along to way so do stay tuned!

How to make your own home-made Macarons!

Tried making some home-made Macarons the other day with my friends!

Here we go!

Ingredients and stuff needed:

1. Weighing Scale
2. 120g Almond Flour
3. 50g Sugar
4. Whip Cream
5. 200g Powdered Sugar
6. 3 Eggs
7. Food Colourings
8. Sifter


Lets start!

Firstly, weigh 120g of Almond Flour and sift it!

Do the same for the 200g of powdered sugar, sift and set them aside!

Next, for the 3 eggs, beat only the egg whites until its foamy!

After that, add in 50g of sugar and beat until the form is stiff!

Add in food colouring! I'm going for mint colour macarons! :D

 Add in the Almond Flour and powdered sugar that you sifted earlier on! Now gently fold in the ingredients!

Your batter should look like this when its done!

Transfer the batter to a pastry or ziploc bag!

Prepare a baking paper on the tray to begin!

You can pipe macarons onto the baking paper now! :D

Doing a good job uh haha

Remember to tap the tray on table to release air bubbles! Leave the batter to harden for 20 minutes and we're ready to put it in the oven!

Now bake for 20 minutes!

Meanwhile, going to make another set of red colour macarons!

Nice or what? Lol

Do the same thing, put it in the oven when its done!

Freshly out from the oven!!!!

Wait for it to cool down before you remove them from the baking paper.

Now for the frosting inside, we are going to use whip cream!

Pour a cup of whip cream into a bowl and also prepare another bigger bowl with water and ice to maintain the temperature.

Add a table spoon of sugar and mix them!

It should look like this :)

Putting the filling in!


Are you ready to see the outcome of the macarons?

(Taken from my iPhone)

The end product! Nice?


Do let me know if you try making the macarons as well!

My Invisalign Journey with About Braces Dental Surgery (Part 1)

"More than just the smile"

As most of you all know, I took off my braces around September last year... I was wearing my braces for around 4 years? but my teeth wasn't really in the state of what I wanted. My 2 front teeth wasn't straight and my upper and lower teeth was not aligned properly.

I'm really excited because I'm here to share with you guys that I'll be going to About Braces Dental Surgery for my Invisalign! :)

Visited About Braces Dental Surgery for my Invisalign consultation!

It is located at Novena Specialist Centre. I was there the other day and the television was playing Iron Man 3! The waiting time seemed so much shorter then haha.

Dr Vaz checking the condition of my teeth. I've actually heard a lot about Dr Vaz and he is really nice and caring towards his patients!

Dr Vaz has 20 years of experience in Orthodontics and is well-versed in all the various kinds of orthodontic treatment available today. He is also an Invisalign Platinum Elite Provider. This special status has been awarded to only a few dentists in Singapore and recognises him as one of the top Invisalign Treating Orthodontists in this country.

I'm so fortunate to be able to do my Invisalign under him! :)


Before we start, if you still have no idea with is Invisalign..

Created with beauty in mind, Invisilign is the clear alternative to braces. You don’t have to worry about getting food stuck in your brackets or worrying about how painful braces will be—Invisalign will help you get the beautiful straight smile that you’ve always wanted.

The team at About Braces will create custom aligners that are made of comfortable (and almost invisible) plastic that you will wear over your teeth. Gradually, the aligners will shift your teeth into place. Every two weeks, you will pop in a new set of aligners until you get your dream smile!

Why choose Invisalign?

- People won’t notice you are straightening your teeth
- You can eat whatever you want
- You can easily clean your aligners
- Invisalign is comfortable (no poky metal ties)


Photos of my teeth being taken! I also had my X-ray taken after that.

I'm going to get the mould of my teeth done... But guess what?


With this machine, patients do not need to undergo the traditional gooey dental material to create an impression of the teeth. Now we can get our teeth scanned and see the 3D model of our teeth instantly!

I really love it cause its so convenient!

The 3D model of my teeth! As you can see, there are some holes in-between my teeth...

This is the ideal aesthetic result! So much better! :)

Take a look at my Invisalign Clincheck! It will show how my teeth will look like at the end of treatment and an idea as to what the end result will be.

My first 5 sets of invisalign! I was told by Dr Vaz that I will need just 18 sets to complete my treatment which will be around 8 months!

Before I wear my aligners, I had some attachments to be on my teeth as this helps it to move when I'm wearing my aligners. I also got some of my teeth shaved so that there will be space for my teeth to move and straighten.

And yes, my teeth is not very clean and yellowish :(

Orange box: Attachments on my teeth
Blue box: Teeth shaved for space to move and straighten

Me with my aligners on! :)

If you were to ask me about the pain level, I would say 0.5/10. I think it depends on every individuals, maybe because I wore braces before so I'm used to the pain tolerance? But don't worry it is not as pain as you imagined! :)

I really can't wait to see the end results of my teeth! Thank you About Braces Dental Surgery and Dr Vaz!

I'll be posting my Invisalign journey along to way so do stay tuned!
