Help Keri Get Press On Veneers by Brighter Image Lab
I have awful teeth, a tight budget and a fear of the dentist. This is the reason I have lived my entire 50-year life hiding my smile. I come from a long line of family who never smile for photos.
One of my earliest memories was the night my dad came home from an emergency visit to a Navy dentist. He was still feeling the effects of the laughing gas and was crying and laughing at the same time. He was bleeding from his mouth and still had gauze stuck in his cheeks. I’ve been terrified of the dentist ever since.
I have finally gotten to the point that I can sit in a dentist’s chair without having a panic attack and I’m very proud of that, but the cost of replacing the lost teeth is overwhelming and the kids come first when it comes to braces.
I am always self-conscious of my teeth everywhere I go. Even around good friends and family I cover my mouth when I laugh and have a tight-lipped smile for pictures.
I once overheard a guy call me snaggle tooth to his girlfriend after I served them at a restaurant I was working at. It felt awful. I feel like this is what everyone thinks when they look at me. I feel like it’s kept me from developing relationships and being able to relax and enjoy myself in social situations.
I have pretty much resigned to a life of wondering what it would be like to have a beautiful smile. Maybe you can help? It’s worth a try. I’ve submitted some pictures. I know my smile is awkward I just don’t really know how. Thanks for considering my case and taking the time to read my story.
