When I was born, my teeth were actually too small for my mouth, so I had a large gap between my front teeth. I went through some dental procedures earlier on in my life when I lived somewhere else, and so I guess they bonded the teeth together and kind of made teeth, but those had chipped and were looking really bad. The color was wrong and everything, and I just didn’t like to smile. I kept my mouth closed. I’d do the closed-mouth smile, and the minute that I got this brand-new set, it just completely changed everything. Everybody noticed, I looked so much happier, and I just couldn’t keep from showing them off.
When my front teeth cracked, it was embarrassing to even talk to people because that’s all I felt like they were looking at was my front teeth. I came in just to see what he could do ’cause he was recommended from a friend, and so I came in and he walked me through the process and let me know exactly how he could help me.
He wanted to make sure it looked as natural as possible. It took a long time, but they were patient and he made sure it was right. We had to go through several changes, but he didn’t let me walk out until it was correct.
Yes, it has made such a huge change. I’m not scared to go and speak in public anymore. I’m not constantly covering my mouth. I’m willing to give a smile, and I get compliments all the time on it.
