Getting A Million Dollar Smile With Dr. Leedia Riman

Being in front of the camera a lot means that every single flaw is amplified. And for someone lie who talks a lot - having a great smile is definitely an asset. So I’ve been wanting to fix my teeth (to be specific my bottom lower teeth) for a while now but I didn’t have the time nor the inclination to wear braces again.

I’ve had braces twice - once in my early teens and once in college - and now, almost a decade later, due to not wearing my retainers, my lower teeth are crooked again. As any adult will probably understand, braces are only socially, aesthetically acceptable when you’re at school. When you’re almost 40, it’s just awkward to do a business presentation or pose for night-out photos with metal retainers around your teeth.

Fortunately for me (and for the rest of adults out there), there’s an awesome new way to get away with having braces without anyone noticing called Invisalign. Kind of a word play on “invisible” and “align”, which is exactly what you get.

The Invisalign is a clear set of BPA-free plastic aligner trays designed to gently straighten your teeth. It’s absolutely safe, smooth, and comfortable. There’s no tendency for food to get caught like it does with regular braces and no discomfort from metal wires. Best of all, it’s virtually invisible.

The way the Invisalign works is that your doctor scans your teeth and maps out your mouth’s movements so your plastic aligners fit your teeth perfectly. Afterwards, they create your customized set of aligners.

Here’s my Doctor explaining how Invisalign works.

I had my custom Invisalign treatment at Dr. Leedia Riman’s, of R Dental Group, based in Beverly Hills. Dr. Leedia comes from a family of dentists, and she’s absolutely lovely and professional. I remember when I first met her: she was so approachable and warm - I was looking forward to my dental visits - which I know was a good sign. I also know I was in the best hands when she had to fill in quite a few cavities for me and the process did. not. hurt. at all. I kept expecting and waiting for pain afterwards, and was even given a prescription of industrial-strength ibuprofen, but I did not feel a thing. If she is capable of filling a gazillion cavities with no pain, I know she is definitely the right dentist for me.

Me, trying to explain why I had so many cavities.

If you can’t talk with your mouth, use your hands.

Clearly, the dentist has some serious skills, so it’s only natural for me to choose her again to put my Invisalign on. It’s important to choose a dentist that you trust when you’re getting Invisalign on (or even just regular braces) because you’ll be coming back to your dentist time and time again!

And I wasn’t at all wrong in picking Dr. Leedia. She made me feel relaxed the entire time and was quick to advise me on after-care. There are still eight months to go for my treatment, but already my Invisalign aligners got me feeling selfie-ready. Can’t wait to show you the before and after results soon!

PS: I am on tray set 7 of about 20 trays (and I have to wear each set of trays for 2 weeks) so I can’t wait to show you my new and improved smile soon!

    Sounds like a plan! Can’t wait to see how it goes.

  • Francine says:

    Oh yes, you surely are in good hands with Dr. Leedia! Would love to have mine realigned too..

  • Taylor says:

    I’ve used braces also when I was younger, like in high school, to have my upper teeth aligned. I didn’t know about Invisalign, but now I am aware and would still very want to have it so it can fully correct my teeth alignment.

  • Shiela says:

    You have one of the most beautiful smiles I have ever seen!

  • Jen Clarence says:

    Yes, braces were all the rage when we were younger, back in middle school. Now, having aligned teeth is a necessity, and I’m glad I discovered invisalign through you. 🙂

  • Livvy Arias says:

    Dr. Leedia is the man!! I mean the woman! I was once her client and she’s topnotch!

  • Leigh Curtis says:

    You certainly have such a beautiful smile, I agree with everybody!

  • Daisy Mae says:

    I am never comfortable with braces or retainers, they’re just to painful to use in your mouth, in my opinion. I had crooked lower teeth too when I was younger and to tell you frankly, I thought it was the “in” thing for girls, but as I grew older, I wasn’t at all happy wearing them.

  • Rose McGone says:

    I always feel conscious smiling because I don’t have great teeth, not even the slightest alignment. I also got pointy canine teeth and misaligned formation. I had been advised multiple times about invisalign and after reading your post, I think I am going to go for it too.

  • Gabrielle says:

    Would love to try this one too.. I’ll stay tuned to your posts so I can see the results too. Thanks for sharing, Heidi.

  • Sarah G. says:

    You really have an awesome smile!

  • Tiffanie Sweets says:

    You are such a beauty… I am in awe and deep admiration to you because you embrace your flaws and don’t mind sharing them to your readers. Even if you have crooked teeth, I still believe that you are one of the most beautiful people I’ve met, inside and out.

  • Yolanda says:

    You are beautiful!!

  • KC says:

    You’re so beautiful!!!!!

  • CLaire says:

    Heard so many great things about invisalign… would love to try this one out too, so I could have my crooked teeth corrected.

  • Ashley says:

    I also had invisalign with Dr. Leedia a few years back. You’re right Heidi, you are indeed in good hands with her 🙂

  • Samantha says:

    Can’t wait to see the results too!!

  • Marissa says:

    I hope this isn’t painful. I am hoping to have my teeth aligned too. How is it going?

  • Savvy says:

    Yes, I would also love to have a million dollar smile like yours! Thanks for recommending Dr. Leedia, she’s the best.

  • Jessica W. says:

    I am quite naive when it comes to this kind of dental treatments. I was afraid of dentists when I was younger, but growing up, I knew it’s a necessity to have my teeth checked at least twice a year. I’ve wondered about Invisalign ever since I saw my cousin have had hers a few years back, makes me think about my own crooked lower teeth too.

  • Gabby says:

    I already love your smile! Improving your teeth is definitely a great way to take care of our little chompers. Can’t wait to see your new improved smile 🙂

  • Kassidy Norton says:

    I’ve always noticed your beautiful smile!

  • Lena says:

    Love that beautiful smile!

  • Karina Lee says:

    I’ve been one of Dr. Leedia’s client for a few years now and she really does a great job in making sure I get that perfectly aligned and pearly white teeth whenever, wherever I go.

  • Taranee says:

    I actually have a gap between my two front teeth, I’ve always wanted to correct it but my friends told me it’s actually an asset. I dunno, for models I guess. I wish I could have it fixed. I gotta see Dr. Leedia about it. I agree with her, you do have such a beautiful smile, Heidi!

  • Lorelei Chung says:

    The Invisalign procedure helped me out with my crooked teeth. It’s true, it is always best to go to the dentist that you trust with your teeth. I now love my smile even more.

    I love how you smile, it’s endearing and genuine. 🙂

  • Rowena says:

    I also had braces when I was younger and we all know that during high school, we thought having braces was the IN thing. Now as I got older, I realized it was just all for aesthetics, and I still want to have my teeth corrected. Thanks for suggesting Invisalign and Dr. Leedia, I’d be making an appointment real soon.

  • Gemma says:

    It is very hard to find an excellent, honest and not totally commercial dentist nowadays. I’m glad I found Dr. Leedia Riman and did my teeth, she’s perfect.
