New Life Smile
by Brighter Image Lab
Changing Lives By Changing Smiles
Real People – Real Stories – Real Need
We’ll never keep up with demand, but we still want to try

Each month we receive hundreds of stories from people, whose lives are on hold because of an embarrassing smile. We provide as many smile makeovers as we possibly can but despite our best efforts, we’ll never be able to help them all – at least not alone. The people you see on this page need help. New Life Smile gives 100% of every dollar donated to these (and other) individuals, and Brighter Image Lab matches every donation – dollar for dollar. This year we plan to give away more new smiles than ever before, but we can’t do it without you. Help us with our mission to find, select, fund and deliver a life changing smile to the people who need it the most. Let’s change a life with a new smile, together.

Introducing: Elbow Funding™
Because you should SEE where your money goes

‘Crowdfunding’ may be a buzz word in the sharing economy, but with New Life Smile, we rely on something a little closer to home. We like to call it ‘Elbow Funding’. This is the kind of giving you do for someone you know. If you’ve ever been in a social setting when an obvious charitable need arose, and gotten a subtle nudge from your significant other in, you know exactly what we mean. Unlike large non-profit organizations that funnel their donations into a giant pool to be divvied up anonymously, we make it a point to highlight the people who will be helped by your donation. What better way to inspire giving than with the story of those who receive the gift?

Lubbock, TX

I bought my upper set at least two years back and now they are destroyed. I broke up with a ex and he destroyed them cause he knew how much meant to me. I'll never be able to afford new ones especially now that my daughter had a baby. I sent pictures in. I tried some of the knock off versions but nothing compares to y'all's and I really don't like myself without them.

Jordan Halcrow

West Yorkshire, UK

Hi my name's Jordan I'm soon to be turning 24, I have a beautiful little girl called Sophia and an amazing partner called Dominic, so my life is quite amazing for who I've been blessed to have in it and I'm eternally grateful although you wouldn't think that from my smile or the lack of smile. I have a disgusting smile I hate everything about my teeth their disgusting to look at. When I was younger I had quite a serious accident in result of that I lost the majority of my front two teeth and they ended up being capped, the visual appearance of my teeth at that stage was ok. A few years later as a teenager I had a serious fall playing sports and my teeth yet again ended up being smashed and chipped, in result of that I had to have a root canal and didn't

Donnica Turner

Athens, AL

Hi my name is Donnica Turner. I am turning 30 this month (March 11th). I am a mom of two and the wife of a US Veteran. I have always had crooked teeth. My smile is pretty but at certain angles. I'm always self conscious about my pictures because if the angle is wrong you can clearly see how my front tooth overlaps the other one. Also my bottom teeth are even more crooked than the top but fortunately don't show as much when I smile. It would be an amazing blessing and birthday gift to me if you would consider choosing me for a makeover. I promise to promote your company and share my experience to help other people. Thanks so much!!

Madera, CA

Hi my name is Amparo Garcia, I am twenty years old and have been struggling with my smile all my life. As a kid I was always bullied for something I could not change. Now as I get older my biggest struggle is dating. I do not like meeting people because I am so embarrassed of my teeth. I can not afford veneers at the moment because of college. It would mean absolutely everything to me if Brighter Imagine Lap could help me in any way. I have gaps and I am missing my two top lateral incisor teeth. Thank you for your time.

Dallas, TX

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Like many I suffer from anxiety and low confidence because of my teeth, or lack there of. Due to medications and lifestyle choices I've gone from a decent to horrendous smile. I am so used to smiling, that sometimes I forget how gross my teeth are until I'm reminded by the faces people make or how the vibe changes when people notice...and it's hard not to. I can't smile or talk without being able to see my stained, broken, and missing teeth. I went to the dentist and after examination the total was $17,000.00 USD. I don't know about you, but I cannot afford that. I left feeling like my life is over. I am trying to get back into the work force after recovering from my disability, but how can I make a good first impression when as

Hi. I just want to say I look at your website everyday and I think you guys do such a beautiful thing. I to know just how important a smile or lack of truly means. I'm 31 yrs old and have lost my quality of life. I have had problems with my teeth for a very long time. I don't think I owned a toothbrush until I was 16. When I could afford one myself. I'm writing you because I have lost my smile and it has affected every part of my life. I have lost friends, my relationship and live in the dark. I'm engaged to be married and have pushed him away so much due to the fear he will see how bad my teeth have got. I know that sounds crazy but my teeth make me feel so bad and I feel like if he is up

It All Started With Dee
A desperate problem, met with a life changing solution
It all started with Dee

“Even the worst stories…

can have a great ending”

Dee’s story is both. Not only were we able to turn her story around, but doing so was the spark that started us on our New Life Smile mission. Dee came to us as she was trying to put her life in order. She had nowhere to stay, no job prospects and most notably, she had no way of carrying on a conversation without covering her mouth. She was trying to hide the fact that she was missing her front teeth. After some initial hesitation, she eventually opened up about her struggles. She told us about the abuse she suffered in a past relationship (the cause of the damage to her smile) and the downward spiral of being shamefully embarrassed of her smile while at the same time, trying to be valuable in a marketplace that puts so much importance on a bright personality and a friendly face.

We knew Dee didn’t have the resources to find the help she needed, and that meant WE had to to something. We also knew that a new outfit, hairstyle and makeup, wasn’t going to do her any benefit without a new smile. So that’s exactly what we gave her. Dee, and the hundreds of New Life Smile recipients who’ve come after her, all have one thing in common. A new smile wasn’t just a chance to their appearance. It was a turning point in their life. When we saw what we could do for Dee, we knew it was time to bring the concept of this life changing charity – to the masses.
