White power chain!

(This update sponsored by: Bridget!)

Sometime last week I began to realize that the dreaded gap was coming back! The giant canyon between my central incisors was coming back to haunt me. I decided to be proactive and go back in to ask for a power chain before it got too much worse. I had to sweet talk them to let me come in without an appointment but there was no way I was going to wait another two weeks for something that takes 5 minutes to do. So, lucky for me I was able to sneak in on Tuesday. They didn't have any clear ones left and I almost decided to choose a brighter colour but ended up settling for a white one. I actually think I like it better than the clear ones, it emphasizes the symmetry more. Here's a photo taken on Tuesday. The gap is about 50% less already today.

ps. The fact that the gap came back is actually a good thing because it means the arch wire is making my occlusion wider, which is what's supposed to be happening right now.
