This Accident Smile Makeover is brought to you by Brighter Image Lab
Nathan needed an accident smile makeover. His teeth were broken in a crash, and he needed help. Brighter Image Lab was there for him, watch his story.
How long have you had problems with your teeth?
Teenager on up, really. Sort of, dipping and really just neglected going to the dentist. Honestly, actually, you know, weak teeth actually run in the family. I had no idea that was hereditary, but yeah, it is.
Special Accident Smile Makeover
This week we’re doing a special kind of makeover. We’re doing one that’s a little bit more extreme than what we normally do. We’re doing it (an accident smile makeover) for a guy named Nathan.
Nathan came to me because he lost his teeth on a four-wheeler and I don’t know if he won the race or not, but we do know that he lost his smile. He had some good friends refer him to us. We were able to work with him, and we kind of agreed with his friends that he’s the type of guy that we want to do our work for.
Nathan’s just not the type of guy that can be who he is if he’s not smiling. If we’re successful at building a new smile for Nathan, he’ll actually use it to get his life back.
Follow me through the rest of this video. Let’s watch his results and let’s see what you think…
Nathan, Bil Watson. Good to meet you sir. Have you met my dog?
Everybody knows Texas. Oh Yeah. What are you doing buddy? First of all thanks for meeting with us.
That’s ok. I’m going to ask you just some general questions. We’ve never met before?
I think we we have a common friend who introduced us this with we text once or twice?
But I’ve never met you, you never met me?
I did this work. I waited because I was pretty impressed…the people who know you think a lot of you. They say you’re a good guy.
That means a lot. How long has your smile been bad?
For 2 years.
Yes, at least.
I got in a bad 4 wheeler wreck.
A four wheeler.
Oh a four-wheeler.
Racer, practicing racing on a ranch.
Just out being crazy?
And I didn’t wear my helmet that day and missed a turn and went straight head on into a tree.
That tree didn’t move?
That tree jumped right out in front of me.
Anybody ever offer your solution at all?
No Affordable Solutions
Not one that didn’t costs thousands and thousands and thousands.
Like a mortgage?
The cheapest one was to get all dentures on top which is…
That’s the cheapest ones, what’s the most expensive one?
Was the implants.
You ever get an idea what it would probably cost you?
About 3,000 a tooth.
A tooth? You needed how many teeth – ten, fifteen teeth?
So you buy a house, you live in?
What do you do for a living?
I’m a wildlife specialist. I actually go out and remove, and relocate, and rescue animals.
Our front staff today – they told me that you caught a beaver.
And then came here? You’re like take it, take it somewhere else and head over here?
Yeah I had a beaver, a raccoon, and a skunk.
As a wildlife guy what does your day consist of?
On an easy day like today, I mean I go out I stomp around in the ponds and set beaver snares.
So you just do beavers?
No I do everything. Everything from rats all the way to coyotes, bobcats on their hands…
What do you do when you catch a freaking bobcat?
Just watch it, grab it.
Really? What do you do with a coyote?
Usually I travel.
And do what?!
And release them, take them to another location in the country.
What do they do, say thanks for the ride?
No, I wish! They try to get after me. Once your corner them, they get mad.
How’d you get that training?
Grew up with it? Did they say we need a guy, you pulled up they offer you the job?
Yes sir. I have I mean I grew up in the Everglades. I grew up catching ‘gators, snakes, everything. As a kid, that was fun.
So a beaver seems like nothing?
Beavers are nothing. They’re easy. Cakewalk.
Please tell me they’re not a lot of snakes in this deal.
I have I’ve caught a bunch of snakes.
You you’re a South Florida boy?
Grew up, did all that. Got your fishing, got your hunting, got your boating, and got all that stuff? And then you relocate to Texas?
How do you like Texas?
I love Texas.
Been good to you?
I hear you’ve got a little boy?
Yeah, he’s the best.
Like his dad, we know.
He is awesome.
Love his dad at all?
Are you guys close?
Your little boy hadn’t seen you smile in couple years?
The Cost of A Bad Smile
I gotta ask, what do you think having a bad smile has cost you? Is it?
Yeah, some strangers, you know, people that I don’t really know closely, it doesn’t really bother me that much. It’s the people that are closest to me is where it really bothers me.
I can tell you that what made me look at this thing is that I got a text that said if you’re interested in helping a really, really good man, and how do you turn that down? From what I understand, you’ve got a lot going on?
Most guys will suffer it. If you’re a girl, you’ve got a different set of challenges.
And and that’s one of the things I want to tell these guys is that, you know, 26, 36, or 56, you have to know you have a choice. What are you hoping these do for you?
His Only Wish
Honestly, I just want to be able to smile again.
Be a dad…
Not to worry.
Just not taking negative, and not have to be excused. I always tell people it’s not about your smile, it’s who you are when you’re smiling. If you’re doing this or if you’re looking down or if you look away then these people didn’t get to see you for a little bit…
And you learn to play it down. So when you when you start getting those happy modes and stuff like that, you know, you just kind of play it down a little bit, and not smile as much, and not laugh as much. And honestly it, it hurts a little bit. It’s…
Yeah, you’re right. I forget about that.
Is A Good Impression Difficult To Make?
A few dentists will go online and say, “What they do is impossible, because you can’t take the impression yourself.” Did you have any problem with the impression (for the accident smile makeover)?
I had no problem with it, actually.
Did it scare you?
No it’s actually really simple. It’s almost like, how do you explain it? Okay, I played high school football.
Oh you did?
It’s just almost like fitting in your mouth guard, except you don’t have to boil it. Mix it up, put it in there, pop it up there.
And it was real simple. All the steps are right there.
You got to read it, but I guess it’s important you read every instruction.
Fitting An Accident Smile Makeover
Let’s see if we can get past it. I think we got something that’s going to work. I’m excited. It’ll feel a little weird, but let’s do it.
Let me get them ready for you.
To be honest, I’m a little nervous.
You gotta be. You think you’re nervous, I’m nervous.
That’s a good spot.
There you go, buddy. Let’s try this in.
Top, yes sir. Let’s see what it looks like. Oh. Smile back. You’re going to be amazed. You’re fixing to change your life (with the accident smile makeover).
Do they feel like they’re sitting? Okay. I think you’re gonna see introduce a whole other person to the world, and the reason being is I’ve seen a quarter of it, and what I’m seeing right now is amazing. You’re used to everyone seeing your top teeth back behind your bottom teeth.
For the first time you’re gonna see yourself with front teeth in front of your bottom –
The way they’re supposed to be.
Moment of Truth
Yeah. Let’s see what they look like. You’ve got to pull your teeth open. You’re doing it brother. Looks amazing. You haven’t seen that in years? What do you think?
You would have never been one of these guys that go I want a perfect smile. But then all of a sudden we take this little, you know, this I guess hunter type guy and gave him perfect teeth, and they just look amazing on you.
That’s gotta be crazy.
It Just Takes Time
You’re shocked. It’s gonna take you three days to get used to wearing them (the accident smile makeover). I told you that you have a pretty good name. People say good things about you?
But you don’t do it because in other words you’re not one to go, he’s got…You’re not one of these guys that just tries to get his features recognized but in a few days you’re gonna realize that when you smile that’s a compliment to people because they want to see you smile.
You know it was all you needed? We did it man I told you we were gonna do it, it’s just hard. I’m scared as you are man, we’re doing this together. I didn’t know what’s gonna make…Your little boy’s gonna see you in a little bit. What’s he gonna say?
He’s not going to know what to say. He’s 5.
He loves his dad your friends are gonna see but he’s gonna see you smile.
That’s so awesome.
Relearning To Smile
You’re gonna learn to not shut your mouth anymore. You gotta realize now if they catch you smiling (with the accident smile makeover), you look better, not, not average. I always tell people it’s not about their smile, but in this situation you’re gonna have an exceptional smile. it’s gonna be exceptional.
Never tried these in before? You gotta…can’t wait to wear these out. There’s got to be somebody…
I know one person right now.
Can’t wait to show them her? Good girl? Yeah, it’s amazing what amazing what gets us out of bed sometimes. Man, you did it all, you’re the one. The whole deal is the smile fits the person.
Not Another Accessory
We don’t want it to be something else for their closet, or something else for their dresser door. We want it to be something that’s an asset for them. Something that’s a real tool, because I think of all the things you’re gonna do, you know, they always say “a white shirt and a reason to wear it,” but if you happen to cover your smile…
I just think you’re gonna do some good things with it (the accident smile makeover).
Wow. I’m blown away.
It’s good to be in shock! We did it!
The Wrap Up
Today has been amazing. I walked in here…completely insecure about my smile and they were just Bil is an amazing guy and he’s able to do something that they pretty much gave my life back. I’m gonna be able to walk out of here with a big old smile on my face. Haven’t been able to do that in years. I’m excited to share this with the world.
I’m still blown away
