Results of Expensive Dentistry
I was on Facebook looking through things on there and I saw a little infomercial. Something like that would be amazing to somebody like me for sure. I have no bad teeth. Two of my teeth never came in, so that's where the spaces come from. I actually still have baby teeth so it's been like that all my life, or for as long as I can remember. Going to a dentist is ridiculous nowadays. You can't, most people cannot afford to go it's absolutely absurd how much it costs. They said that I'd have to get braces or do the porcelain caps. Which is never going to happen. I mean I'm poor, and I can't afford all that mess.
I was looking through pictures, and there's none except maybe one when I was not aware of my teeth. There's not a single picture of me showing my teeth except one with my mama and that's it. All these years, it's crazy how something can affect you.
There's just no words what this means to me. That's why if I hadn't have gotten this, I'd have been happy for whomever did. Because I know what it means to me so I can only imagine what it means somebody else too. Today's a pretty good day.
The Anticipation Comes To An End
Wendy? Bil Watson, I wanted to tell people your smile is not a luxury. When people invest in themselves it helps them be a better person. I know that your story meant a lot to me, and it takes a little bit of getting adjusted to them.
I'm willing to try.
You know without a doubt that if we try these on there's always a chance that they don't work. But we're going to try and see what we've got.
Don't drop it, then I'll show you. So you've never seen your own smile? That's crazy! Take your time and look at them.
Let's see oh my gosh!
Stunned By A Smile
Do you see them? You look amazing!
Wow! It doesn't even look like me.
You're going to have to practice smiling.
I've never smiled with my mouth open.
See how weird it is? For the first time please try to smile big.
No problem. Wow! Oh my gosh!
You have never smiled?
38 years and you have never smiled?
I'm trying really hard not to mess up my makeup up guys, come on.
Let me ask you this, your boys have never seen you smile?
You've always hid your smile? Are you crazy?
It's crazy, I can't believe this!
You have to smile big though.
That's not really hard for me to do right now, because I actually can.
Learning To Smile Big
I don't believe this. Give me a hug. We're doing it that's what you wanted right?
Oh my gosh more than anything in the world. I won the lottery right here. It's great! I cannot get over this, I cannot believe it.
You would have done it years ago, but when you see yourself with this smile you see yourself smiling then you want to show your smile.
No I can't believe that's me, and you're not going to make me cry.
Who's going to be the first one to see you?
To spend 38 years hiding and then can you see yourself ?
Yeah I'm not hiding anymore, it's great I can't thank you guys enough.
Good Things Come To Those Who Wait
I think you're going to see yourself doing a lot of different things but you needed it. If we didn't make this happen it probably wasn't going to happen. You would've just kept going, but every day you would wonder what would happen if I had that kind of smile. I would do more, have more energy, I'd be more outgoing, and I hate to see people sit back and go well things are just tough. It's never me, it's never my turn, and today it's your turn.
Finally my turn...Finally something good, well really great I love them actually. I cannot believe I look like this.
I want you to look again.
That is crazy that is just awesome, now I just need a date and I'll be good.
The Risk To Smile Big Is Worth The Wait
A year from now people won't know you as the lady that has gap teeth. But with the gap teeth I wanted to let people know that we could do the work. It's always sensitive and I think you know I was concerned that maybe they wouldn't fit or they wouldn't look right. Because we had to fill in places that were separate than teeth but when I started doing the design I'm thinking this is going to work and I felt confident enough to come all the way because you've never tried them on before,
No and I just love you for feeling confident to try that.
Well I appreciate you for being brave enough to do this video. I hope you can see where it'll help some people.
There's no words.
