Stacy’s story: an extreme makeover
Oh Wow! Is that Stacy? Oh my goodness. So beautiful! That is amazing! Yes, that’s what you needed, sweetie. I like that. Isn’t that beautiful? Tell them I said thank you.
This day started when we arrived at the salon, because today we needed to do a special makeover. This story starts with a girl named Stacy. Stacy is twenty-seven years old. She’s a single mother of two and believe it or not she used to be a cheerleader.
An extreme makeover for a new life
Stacy asked us for a new smile, but our plans were to give her a new life smile. Getting started, it was obvious Stacy was very embarrassed to smile. Because when your smile’s this bad, you don’t want to show it to anybody.
And we understood that and my friends at Honeycomb Salon, they knew it too.
She doesn’t want to lose her length. See you in a little bit. Sounds good, be right back.
We knew that if we were going to bring this girl back, we were going to have to get her to see herself the way she used to be. That was going to take a haircut, some color, and a little bit of style.
And as skeptical as she was, believing all of this was going to be a big waste of time, I actually started seeing Stacy warm up. I could tell she was actually starting to feel it. By the time we got to makeup, she was almost ready to smile.
And we knew we were getting close. But with just one look in the mirror, she lost it. That’s when I stepped in and said, “Whoa, hold on, trust me. This is why we’re here. The reason why we’re here with you.”
Let’s try these in. And within a few minutes, she was smiling like she had never smiled before. Just as happy as she could be and her new smile made all the difference in the world. And we could see Stacy was going to have a new life.
She can’t stop smiling
For the rest of the day, Stacy could just not stop smiling. After looking at Stacy’s before-and-after smile makeover pictures, we just couldn’t imagine her ever going back to her old self.
Look at that, look at that pretty smile. Yeah look at that! I am so happy.
I could cry, ’cause that’s my girl.
Don’t, ’cause then I’ll cry. I’ll see y’all later, okay?
Tell them I said, “Thank you!”
At Brighter Image Lab, we know it’s not about your smile. It’s about who you are when you’re smiling.

Instasmile or Brighter Image Lab – Which Product is Worth Your Money?
Watch this video to see what you get for your money. Instasmile vs Brighter Image Lab – It’s a showdown review.
Asking for a better smile
Since I was 13 years old, I had gone to a dentist who asked me for two things: If an angel came and tapped you on the shoulder, what would you ask for? One of the things I asked for was whiter teeth and straighter teeth.
I have to say that it’s been an ordeal and I’ve been trying to manage that for some many years now. Braces were expensive. At the age of 13, you can’t get them unless somebody gets them for you.
I’d been looking for a reason to get to New York City. I’d received an email from a lady. Her story was pretty compelling. This is the kind of story that makes going to New York City worth it.
But in order to get there, my day started about 4:30 in the morning. So, come with me. Let’s travel to New York City and let’s see how this smile makeover turns out.
Today, I’m doing one of the craziest things I’ve ever done. We’re taking a new life smile to somebody and what’s crazy about it, is we haven’t even sent them a test kit to see if these things even fit.
And I probably never thought about it before and just between me and you, because I never thought about it, I’m never going to do it again.
My name is Giselle and I’m from Long Island. I am currently in my 50’s. Shh! And for a long time, I’ve been having difficulties with my teeth. I tried working with an online company prior to Brighter Image and I was completely let down.
She sent us an email, told us about her story, told us what had been done to her. And so, we said we’ll do it. That’s what we’re here to do today. It’s to see how we can change her smile. it’s pretty cool because for the first time, we’ve come this far.
I can’t wait to hear her story and, you know, I read about it, but I haven’t heard it from her firsthand. A very attractive person with a really nice smile. It’s just not lined up properly.
Getting it right on the first try
We didn’t send these ahead for fitting. Didn’t send a blank to make sure that they fit. Just came all the way to New York with our first try. Which i think is stupid now. It was kind of last minute. We had a chance to do it and so we took the time to do it.
Couple of questions I have for you.
How did you hear about us?
I went online and I started doing a lot of research on YouTube. That’s where I get a lot of my information. And I came across, I think I’ve seen all your videos by the way. And one of the things that became a problem for me was the cost and the financing.
Instasmile or Brighter Image Lab
At that point, you didn’t offer financing and I was able to do Instasmile. And I thought that at that moment, “Okay, well I done. I’m good.” It’s not the same product.
Did you see us first or see them first?
No, I saw them first.
Did you think they were the same?
I wasn’t sure. I wasn’t sure because then I got even more confused when I saw more videos and I saw more information online.
Let me grab something real quick. So you bought from Instasmile. What happened? I kind of know but I don’t know.
A bad impression with Instasmile
Okay, it was always a problem with the impression. So that took, this was like three times which took about a month and a half. The impression I received, once I did get it, it was very very long and very thick.
I had asked for the Platinum product. Which, that was in April. And that continued all the way through December. I had over 100 emails of going back and forth, trying to get this resolved.
Towards December where I expected- Oh and each prototype came back progressively worse. It had bigger gaps. They were not shorter as I had requested.
All prototypes, no final product?
No, no. I got my final product in December without okaying the prototype.
The end product, it shows up, what happened?
It was awful.
Just, when did you know? Instantly?
I knew instantly when I looked at it. It was bad. And I’m like, “Alright, you know what? Let me put it on and let me see if maybe visually it’s just huge.” No, it was horrible all the way around. It was just…
It seemed as if they never made any of the changes that I had requested.
Did you just do tops or top and bottom?
Both, top and bottom.
So it was pretty expensive?
Yeah it was bad.
Reviewing the Instasmile Veneers
I think I have them. They’re gonna hate your feelings. We’re gonna get past it real quick, though.
I don’t even wanna see that.
Yeah, I don’t think we do either.
They’re terrible. They were so big.
Let’s just forget about it. It’s not worth it. I can see what they tried to do. And I actually polished them back up so I can see what was wrong with them. And I can see where you’re talking about the color and stuff. So, let’s just forget about them. Not worth talking about.
Trying BilVeneers from Brighter Image Lab
You want to try on the top?
I designed these based on style.
To be a little sharper. I didn’t want you to lose your personality.
And so I did my best. Let’s see if it fits.
Thank you! Oh my gosh. They fit.
Let’s see how they look. They look freaking amazing. I’m trying to see if there’s anything I can do.
They fit like a glove.
Well, we’re going to see. You want to try the bottom one in first? Here you want the bottom one too?
Let’s get used to looking at this one first, because, let me say this – your bite’s going to adjust after three days. Let’s put the bottom ones in and see if they fit.
Two foreign objects
Because, if that’s true, you’re going to get full veneers. I normally don’t ask people to do two at the same time because it takes days to get acclimated to foreign objects in your mouth. But because your teeth are so attractive right now, it’s kinda like in Vegas if you win once, you win twice, you want to go and win a third time.
So, let’s try. But if it doesn’t work or if it doesn’t fit right, it’s going to take longer to get adjusted to two. But there’s no way we want to walk away without seeing those. Make sense?
Brighter Image Lab is Amazing
This is amazing.
Yeah, I know, I can tell.
I’m so happy.
Like, a lot of times, what we do is self-satisfying. Like when we know that we did it.
Oh my gosh.
I need a bigger mirror.
You glad you got yours?
So, you’re going to have to push these down. Make sense?
Okay, alright. But start in the back, right? They’re in.
They’re in. Perfect.
Let me see.
Oh my God!
Perfect! You have a smile that doesn’t really bite closed.
So, you kind of have an open smile.
I do, yeah.
And it’s gonna be pretty cool.
I like the open smile
I do too. It makes you look like a kid.
You never tried these in before two seconds ago?
And I pulled them out of a sealed case.
So, this is- you’re already talking to me and you’re already having a conversation in 30 seconds.
You know, I was- you can, I think you can tell, I was scared to give you both in five minutes. It just looked so good.
I love them. I love them.
They look so amazing.
My God. I had all these concerns. They look amazing. Look at your points.
I love that.
I love that.
Looking for flaws
My job now is to see if- is to do what you would do if you knew my job when nobody else was around. And if I can detect from any side of that tooth whether anyone would ever think that you didn’t not get porcelain veneers.
They look like porcelain veneers. My mother-in-law is going to be jealous because she just spent a fortune on her teeth.
And you feel fine with the bite?
I do. I do. Over here a little inside just a bit.
Because it’s going to take a few days, but yeah.
Yeah, I think so. They’re perfect!
They look amazing.
They look perfectly straight, all your details, and all your chisels – we did it.
Yeah, mine but better.
The verdict on Instasmile
I think we did good! You know, I want to thank you, but let me say this: I’ve had people tell me through comments, “You need to thank her for me. No, don’t thank her for you. Don’t thank her for your company. Thank her for me.”
I am amazed at your results.
We want to thank you and you know, giving the opportunity to help others is major. Sometimes people don’t reach out when they should and I’m glad that I reached out and filled out the application and here we are. I’m so thrilled.
Tough day. The storms in New York caused us to be re-routed to Charlotte, North Carolina. So, we’re hoping to get home tonight. At least, I am trying to get home tonight. Could not have worked with a better person today.
She did her job so we could do ours
The young lady that we worked with, mother of two, wanted a smile so bad you can’t even imagine. And we were able to deliver that. She just was an exceptional individual. Very happy, every bit as more exciting, more pleasant, more wonderful to deal with.
Awesome person. I was glad to meet her, and you can tell her family means the world to her. Every time she lit up talking about her kids, the boy, the girl, husband. Made it worth it.
I was incredibly impressed with the detail that she put into her impression and I was super, super appreciative of the patience that she gave us actually do the work that we need to do.
I looked at her work today for 20-30 minutes and I could not imagine what we could do to do it any better. So, I was real, real pleased. We thought we’d get there, get in at 11, get out about 8-9. It didn’t work out that way.
Vlogging ain’t easy
And so anybody that tells you vlogging is not tough is crazy. It’s a long day. I hope it looks as good on camera as it does in person. Remember if you like what you’re seeing, subscribe.

I need a haircut
I was supposed to do a lot of stuff today. Before I get started, I feel weird about the blog because I need a haircut. I’m gonna go ahead and do my own haircut. So, we’re gonna see how it works.
I have seen a couple other bloggers cut their own hair and I’m gonna see if I can. Come follow me, I’m gonna cut it in the back. Okay, I think I can do it. I think I can cut my own hair.
I’m just gonna put this towel on me and I’m just gonna start cutting. It can’t be that hard. Like I’ll just start cutting right there. Ouch!
So, what do you think? I’m absolutely finished. It’s all cut. I think I did pretty good. Anyone can cut their own hair. Guys, I’m kidding with you. I didn’t cut my own hair. These aren’t my scissors. This is not my stuff.
Every month I get my hair cut by Helena and today we were just having fun because we’d seen some other bloggers that we’re cutting their own hair and then all of the sudden it looks great. So, we thought we would try it.
How we select New Life Smile Clients
Really what we’re doing today is: we wanted to open up the blog on how we actually do our New Life Smile Makeovers. People go online, they apply to be a New Life Smile Client, and people wonder how that process is done or how we go about doing it.
And so, they’re normally done in the evening and that’s what we’re gonna do this evening. This week’s blog is gonna be about that. Let’s see what you think.
What are you doing kiddo?
Would you like to sit down and maybe look at the prospective new life smile clients?
Let’s bring them out, come on. Kenna!
I’m trying to see if I can’t make it.
I think it’s the table top. Oh hey!
Will you bring me the prospective new life smile clients?
I think it’s pretty cool I just need to be better at doing it longer.
I always like to look and look at their pictures and read their stories and-
It’s all in the New Life Smile Client Story
It’s always the New Life Smile Client story. Let me see them. She’s so pretty but she can’t smile. Let’s see what this little girl’s story is. I wanted to do -Kansas, 22. Got a baby girl. I just don’t think that at 22 you can start your life with yellow teeth and big spaces and hope for the best and us ignore it.
They don’t look so big there. See what you think.
No they don’t, yeah.
Look how big this gap is.
Hmm. Oh my goodness. Wow.
But her teeth are clean and they’re healthy.
I think we just have to. Let’s see we can do on hers because these gaps, I’d like to fix them, but boy they’re hard. They’re hard long term. Look at that.
Went from that to that.
That’s just kinda weird.
A server with…. heard whispers… Some of these people are just mean.
An affordable smile makeover
You know, and if the dental industry would make things more affordable, like just basic.
I want to do this girl’s teeth but her gums are so swollen that I don’t know.
Yeah… She’s got some other… Wow.
She’s a single mother of two. Boy, that’s what I hate. It’s one thing to be in this world when you’re on your own. You know, when you can bob and weave, it’s nothing.
Yeah, but if it’s go to the dentist for yourself or feed the kids.
This little girl is super pretty. Even a little bit of discoloring, when it’s yours, it’s bad.
You can tell she cleans up real good. Where’s she from? UK.
‘Cause I think if you go, you might as well do…
If I go to UK, I’m gonna do a few…
Two or three.
Bad Teeth in the UK
But, I want to do some men if I go to the UK. Because every time I go to the UK, I see a lot of suits and bad teeth. To me, I think they think that it’s just acceptable because the difference is not worth the difference.
But I’m like, let me just try. I get the feeling like if I cut hair, and I saw somebody with a bad haircut, I’d be like, just sit down. I got five minutes.
Let me fix it.
When I sit there and see three men outside in Armani suits, and they look like a Fortune 500 meeting seminar. Then all of a sudden, they start smiling and you go, “Wow, dude.” And so if I go to the UK, I gotta get some guys.
The other thing I want to say is: Guys, if there’s any guys, we need more guys.
That’s what I was going to say.
Because guys won’t tend to ask for a favor they’ll… “I can do it. I’ll fix it. I’m gonna get to it.”
Well and like this guy, his teeth are way crooked.
But, I don’t know if we can fix it.
Bad Teeth…Hate To Smile
That’s like he almost needs to get something else. You know, as bad as I hate it, but I would tell anybody, if you’re a guy and you have bad teeth and you hate your smile don’t be afraid to go online.
Do our smile story and submit, so we can see what we can do. I’ll tell you that if you think you won’t be picked, it’s not that we try to make it a win or lose thing, but obviously you can tell that if you’re a guy, the probability of you being included or at least reviewed is pretty serious, right now. Especially if you’ve got some merit.
Oh cute, she’s a cute girl.
Yeah and see, she looks real. I mean-
Sometimes all a New Life Smile Client needs is teeth whitening
I’m just wondering if we just bleach her, though. Let me say this, you tell me: her teeth aren’t so bad. They’re big, but if we were to just whiten the teeth, wouldn’t that be enough for her?
Yeah, the cleaning and the whitening.
Because they’d bleach in no time.
And same thing with this. You almost want to see… her gums…
A little spring (teeth) cleaning
We have to- if we do any one of these that are really bad, we need to set up an appointment with one of the doctors who will actually clean their teeth. So, let’s keep going through these. Let me see what you’ve gotten so far.
Okay, that’s the Houston girl.
I think Houston’s a go.
Don’t you agree?
Just, if she wants it, we’ll do it. She’s asked for it. Let me see what else we got.
We’ll deliver to Pizza Hut
Okay, now Ohio, and I’m kind of leaning toward that young.
She works at Pizza Hut.
Yeah, that’s cool.
Yay! Pizza Hut!
Boom! Wow! All I know is, is that she’s gonna be a totally different person come Monday. If we don’t help this little kid be different, the world’s gonna eat her up with that smile.
She needs some time. I think we can fix her. Er, not fix her but help her. She’s in Illinois. Morton, Illinois. Yeah, she’ll-
She needs top and bottom. Let’s see what we’ve got. Sophomore at Liberty University. She has a rare bone disorder.
You see she says I’m a wheelchair-bound… Oh she’s…
Bless her heart.
Well she’s a sophomore.
Oh, she’s 21 years old.
We need contact information to contact New Life Smile Clients
Oh I see. Yeah. I hate when they don’t give a phone number. I want to work with them.
They upload the pictures and we’re sitting here going, oh they did this, they did that. And I guess we have an email form, but if you don’t have a cell phone number you can’t ask them any questions.
Another UK. Oh, look at that gap. I bit what, what happened is-
YouTube Influencers make great New Life Smile Clients
The reason why I’m crazy about doing gaps, is because we’ve been doing so good. We’ve been figuring out how to make them work. There’s a guy in here from New York City that I want to do. it’s a new kid that does the YouTube channel.
He got like 4.5 million hits on one song.
And if he’s a decent guy, if he’s a decent kid at all, I want to work with him. So you’ll see that come out. This girl’s got really, really long teeth. We can do them, I’m just really scared that they’ll think they’re just too long.
They’re huge, yeah.
We can’t make the teeth shorter
Because everybody wants teeth shorter. And we can’t make them shorter. All we can do is put them over. Anyway, so we’ve got to bail out. Long teeth are tough to do. I think that’s one thing.
The other thing is, is they’re protruded if they stick too far out at the bottom and not enough at the top. It’s hard to right-size that to where you could actually put a veneer on it.
And if they have too much motion. So, some of these people go, “Why don’t you work with me?” it’s not that we didn’t review it. it’s just, it’s not a situation that I think we can make them feel more comfortable with.
Offering New Life Smile Clients more than just veneers
Well in some of these people, I think maybe if we just, like her even. Even if we just say, “Hey, for right now, we’re just gonna help you out in this way.” And give them some cleaning and some bleaching.
Yeah, but this little girl’s got such a good life, that I would do anything to get off the Kansas City Airport and hand her a smile and then push her back to work.
And get her out making a change in the world. And then it’s like, hey, she got her stuff. Am I wrong?
Yeah, she looks like a real sweet, sweet girl.
Yeah,. pick two or three.
Everything going for her but her smile
Girls like this or the freckled girl, the smile is the only thing she’s lacking. They already have the whole package except for-
Yeah, everything they need.
Girls like, girls like, think about Stacey. She was lacking everything: the hair, the makeup, the teeth.
Yeah, she wasn’t getting any, no love.
And then now, you see her Facebook. She’s got makeup on in every picture, she’s smiling in every picture, her hair’s done in every picture.
Yeah, she’s making the effort.
Happy every day.
Because she feels like she’s worth-
It changed her that much. It influenced her to put makeup on every day.
Wrapping it up
We’re gonna, we’re gonna look at them. Because I’m gonna wrap this up.
I need to go eat. Thank you so much. Would you tell Miss Jen- Miss Jennifer!
So, I’m thinking this.
Thank you for staying for me tonight.
Do you see what we’re doing?
What are y’all doing?
Selecting the New Life Smile Clients
I need you for a few minutes. I think we have enough. We have more than 10 possible new life smile clients. You pick out the other five that you want for sure. I’ll pick out these five and then we’ll start contacting them. And then I’ll do some more stuff.
Okay, I’ve got 3 possible extreme smile makeover clients in Texas. So that’s what we could do local. And then we’ve got the one… oh here’s another. There was another one.
I’ve got a few more than I must have pulled. They just aren’t showing. I will probably come get you in a little bit, but-
Well, no, the last time we looked over this… the few that-
I got a New York guy that I can’t find.
I want to do him because I like that he’s a YouTuber. If he’s a good kid at all, I want to work with him. So, we’ll see.
Contacting the New Life Smile Clients
So, I think what we do is we break for now and when we get some people on the phone, we may cover it. We’ll do some more footage there where we see what they’re like on the phone.
And because I think that’s a big deal. We just talk to them and see what they think. Because, generally, they get pretty excited or they’re shocked. Let’s just take it from there. Right now, I want to go eat.
So, I’m gonna leave this out and when I find the other ones, I may come get you.
Great. Thank you Jill!
Thank you so much.
Thank you, Bil. This is so fun.
It’s fun when it works.
You know what and sometimes like even with Stacey, it wasn’t fun at all.
The ride home
Until the ride home and we had I guess a 13 minute ride from there to here. And boy, you wanna talk about a little girl who was sorry for not being… at having a bad… I don’t know, if I could walk in her shoes, what I would’ve done.
I don’t know how I could’ve tried to be grateful on her situation that was perceived to be so screwed. But, I will tell you, you want to talk about making it worth it.
Yeah, because I will tell you. If that would have went bad, the next day I was gonna say screw it, I don’t want to deal with these crazy…
You know. But when she got happy, I knew something was up. I knew and she didn’t get a little happy. I mean, she went on. In other words, like, “I think I just learned how to live happy.”
And that was a big deal for me. So, we’ll see.
We’re going to go eat. I’ll see you in a little bit.

New Smile Makeover Plea from Woman is Heard and Answered
Watch as Brighter Image Lab performs a Christmas miracle and gives a woman the best present with a new smile makeover.
I get the feeling that your teeth have held you back. Every once in awhile you get a message and we get them from all over the freaking world and we’re busy as we can be. I think you’ve seen when you walked in. We’re just snowed.
What would you do if you got a video like I did? You know, what would you do? You would go, “We got to do one more.” I think that nobody needs to hear that. Nobody needs to hear how bad do you want something.
You see what I’m saying? It was just a favor to me. I was just glad it worked out the way it did, that I got you. All I had to do is look at you. Sometimes it doesn’t take words.
Hey guys, today we’re doing a YouTube. We’re actually gonna do a vlog on going to see somebody. In case you don’t know Kenna, this is Kenna.
Kenna is the one that kind of has a lot to do with our new life smile clients. And this young lady sent us a pretty compelling emotional video and it’s not the kind of video that you could ignore.
Once you receive these kind of videos, they they tend to affect you. And then it’s not just real easy to just go OK and go on about what we do. So this one kind of stuck with both of us and what was good is she’s not that far.
Announcing A New Smile Makeover…Over Lunch
You know, Kenna told me about it, so I said let’s go eat. Let’s go to lunch. Let’s see if we can go tell her we’re going to do her new life smile.
I think it’s going to change her chances and I can’t wait to see what it looks like. I hope it goes well. Kenna stayed as persistent as she can be to make sure that something happened. Then all the way in, can we go now? Can we tell her now? What about tomorrow? And so that’s kind of where we’re at.
We’re driving over there to see her now and to tell her about it. We have never done it live before. We’ve always done it over the phone and so we thought this would be a different deal. We hope it comes up pretty good for Christmas.
Yesterday, I woke up. I went to work. Pretty much an average day in the morning.
Who’s Helping Who?
Hi my name is Kim, how can I help you?
Hey Kim! We’re starving, we need your help. Can you help us?
Yeah not a problem…
And I want a Sonic burger and then she wants a Sonic number one too. But we need your help on something. Can you do as a special favor?
Yeah, what’s up?
Can you have Ashley bring it to us?
My coworker, Kim, had told me that there was a person on one of our stations that wanted to talk to me and I was like, “Oh okay.”
Don’t tell her, it’s a surprise. Okay, thank you.
I just thought they were a regular customer. I just was going about, you know, helping them when I went out there.
A Surprise New Smile Makeover
Hey you! Hey, how are you doing?
Hi Ashley, I’m Kenna.
Is this your order?
From Brighter Image Lab.
So I was just so completely shocked. I just could not believe it.
Oh my goodness!
So I talked to Bil. This is Bil.
Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you. And we got you in. We’re gonna do your new smile makeover.
Are you serious? I’m dead serious. Tomorrow.
Oh my God.
We’re going to try to do it tomorrow. It’s ok!
And this is Bil. This is the big man.
How are you doing?
And then Bil, I almost didn’t recognize him, because I never in a million years thought he would come to my job. Like that is just so amazing and exciting.
I got your video. I appreciate you sending it to me.
This is just something really cool to be really excited about.
If you can give us some time tomorrow. Kenna will talk to you this afternoon when you get off.
A New Smile Makeover for Christmas
This is really exciting too because it is a, you know. Like if I hadn’t gotten this, I was still like really excited that I would have the chance to even pay for it. I mean I knew it would took like a year or two, you know, for me to get the money to pay for it.
We always try to work with people who try to work for themselves. We’ll get you back as soon as possible.
This is so exciting! I’m really wanting to go into a career in graphic design.
Oh God bless you.
I put it off so long because I just knew that my teeth would hold me back, you know. This is just so exciting. It’s like-
You’re just empowered.
My life is changing. Yeah.
And we’ll get Christmas. We’ll get the new year.
I’m always just curving my lip over my teeth like right now I’m trying to cover…
I understand. We’re gonna take that away from you. We’ve got everything that we think we need and so we’re just going to start tomorrow. We’ll see you. Tell them thank you for letting us keep you this long from work. Okay? See you soon. See you tomorrow. Let’s do it tomorrow.
A Company That Cares Enough to Deliver
After that was over, I just couldn’t even believe it. I just kept thinking about how awesome that was that he had come to my job. And then I just cried a whole bunch about it because it’s such a life-changing thing that’s so exciting.
I think anybody in the world that would meet you would go, “Wow, I want to – I’ll meet with her. I’ll talk to her.” And I feel like you’ve been a friend to a lot of people that you don’t even know. And I can tell by the way you take care of people yesterday.
A New Smile Makeover isn’t a Luxury
Sometimes a girl just needs her stuff. Don’t you think? And I always get upset when people think that it’s a luxury. Yeah, I’m sorry, but taking care of yourself’s not a frickin luxury. It’s just not. It’s not. Do you agree? It’s just not a luxury.
You have to because it’s how you take care of other people. And you’ve been fortunate because you’ve bobbed and weaved with some disadvantages. But can you imagine being with two kids? Can you imagine being a single mom? Yeah, it’s just tough and it doesn’t take that much.
Today we’re going to make a few little changes about some things that you haven’t done in a while. We want to bring you back to where we think you would be if your smile wasn’t holding you back. So if you can do that, we got some help.
We’re gonna bring some people in and do some stuff and then we’re gonna come back and see if these things work. You know, we’ll go from there. Okay, let’s do it. Don’t thank me till they fit. Then we’ll do it, okay.
Amazing New Smile Makeover
Brand new smile, kiddo. Brand new smile. You know there’s always a chance, so we’ll be conservative with these. They’re going to feel weird. They’re going to feel large. In a couple days you won’t feel them at all. You look amazing. How’s all the makeup feel?
How’s the hair?
I mean I hope it looks great. I haven’t seen it yet.
So, let’s start with the tops. Let’s try these bottoms right quick. Let me see again. They look amazing, absolutely amazing. Got a little bit of lipstick. Okay, let’s try this. Give it a second. Bite into them. Let’s see what we’ve got. They look great for my side.
I know. It’s crazy isn’t it? Look at that. Hold it straight up real quick. Can you see? It’ll be okay, okay. Give it a minute, okay. It’ll be alright. Hold on, we don’t want to ruin your makeup, okay? What are you hoping it’ll do? You just feel better about yourself everywhere you go?
Let me see. I think they look amazing. How’s the hair feel?
Awesome, thank you.
You think you can be ready for Christmas?
(Re) Learning To Smile
And you’re gonna learn to smile for me? You think?
And when you do, do what you can to not so cover your teeth, because I don’t think anyone’s ever gonna think that your teeth aren’t – you see what I’m saying? It’s gonna take a while. I don’t think we have a lot to do. We’re gonna take a picture of me and you and then we’re gonna wrap it up. If you can imagine that. It’s been a long day.
It has been a very long day.
But you don’t have to worry about your smile holding you back anymore.
It’s been a big deal for us and I know it has been. It’ll be okay. It’s a big world isn’t it?
It’s just so exciting!
Hopefully it’ll give you the confidence to do something different this year. Feel good?
You feel better?
I think you’re gonna shock people.
Can’t wait to show off her New Smile Makeover
I’m going right to my job.
And show them? Even though you’re not working?
Even though I’m not working, I’m going down there.
Well then let me get you there. You’re gonna send me texts and we’re gonna do some stuff. And hopefully what’ll happen is, it’ll just inspire some other people who shouldn’t have been so far behind. I hope you know it’s been a pleasure for me to do this for you. You see what I’m saying? It’s been a big deal. Every once in a while…
I wish that I had the words.
You don’t have to thank me, you’ve thanked me enough.
Watch this story from a make-up artist we have used in several New Life Smile makeovers. Bridgette has helped dozens of people smile again by providing the make-up for their smile makeover.
I think they have big future for making people over, absolutely. I mean if if we had known there was something like that, you can make someone’s hair look fantastic, and their makeup, and you know even with terrible skin.
Her Smile Costs Her Clients
I mean I have access to whatever I need to do that for someone, and they can look at themselves just like I would look at myself and feel like, “Man, my makeup looks awesome today.” Or, “My hair is great,” and then I smile and I’m like, “Oh, that shuts it down.”
Hey guys. Today, I want to thank you for being with me. The reason why I think this is a pretty special interview is because for the first time I got the opportunity to share a new perspective.
Bridget Has Seen Both Sides of a Smile Story
I worked with Bridgette in the past. She’s worked both sides of it. She’s actually seen the people change and she’s seen the effect, and she’s seen firsthand what they look and feel like. And then just recently we were able to actually get her in a pair.
So, as a viewer it gives you a unique view of what it is that we actually do from somebody else besides us.
Bridget’s Back Story
Tell me, how’d you get into makeup?
I got into it because I’ve always had a love for it, and I always wanted to be an artist in some way growing up. But I was encouraged to, but kind of like, “Well you can’t really make a living that way.” And I saw being a stylist and a makeup artist as a way to be creative, but still have a career.
The reason why we we’re talking about you’re doing some what ifs like if we were to work with salon owners everywhere to who would we pick to work with? And I was saying one of the reasons why I’d like to work with people like Bridgette is because she has an eye for like a graphic eye, you know?
The Artistic Side of Make-Up
We have an artistic eye of looking at something and a way to convey that to the client. Because sometimes they just need to be convinced of what’s really there. They’re used to seeing their imperfections, and they need to know – you’re blinded by your own self-consciousness right now.
And we can kind of lift the veil on that, I think. Like, will a lady sit there and look at another lady and go, “Your teeth are jacked?”
Women Feel Comfortable With Their Stylist
Cuz here’s what I’m saying. The reason why I thought so is because they’re in the only place that they could talk about it. They can talk to a dentist, they can talk to their priest, their best friend, or their stylist.
You could have done all the make-up in the world for Stacey, the first girl that we did, and she is still left like this. Well, I don’t care how pretty you are, you can’t, you’re not dressed if what you have is broken.
Braces Are Not An Affordable Smile Solution
The last one that needed braces, it was $8500 for braces, and they wanted another two thousand dollars to make it tooth thin. To cut that bottom of the tooth off. So she’s like, “I have to go through braces, and then when they come off one tooth is going to be longer. We were a wonderful choice for her instantly.
That was for you. I know initially, I was in shock that you didn’t even ask for one, because historically you’ve seen the people we put them on.
A Brighter Image Is Everything
Like if I am doing someone’s makeup, I feel like I need to look halfway decent. Even if I had a really bad night, and I had to rush to work, and the kids were sick or whatever. They still need to look at me and feel confident that I’m capable of what they want.
I still feel like if I can put a smile on my face, then I’ll look nice and I’m, therefore, more professional. Because I’m there, and I’m confident, and I’m not hiding behind like being self-conscious. It just takes away a huge weight of being self conscious.
My parents spent a lot of money on my teeth when I was younger, and I did do what I thought I could to keep up, you know, taking care of them.
The Emotional Effects of a Bad Smile
And then I got a big chip in my tooth and it kept getting bigger, and I got more self-conscious. I wanted my smile to be brighter, and and I realized how much it affected me daily, even with my own kids. A little change like that can make a huge difference.
I noticed in the picture that we took, you didn’t smile. And everybody’s smiled but you, and you got one of the prettiest smiles in the room, you just didn’t do it. So I think you’re making up for it.
I do too.
Recommending A Smile Solution
Why would you recommend them?
Because of how natural they are. How well-fitting, because it’s based off of my teeth, my mold. The quality, I mean the price point to get the same result as going to a dentist. It’s mind blowing, like how much money you would spend. Automatically, I thought, “Wow. That looks so good,” because I was used to what I saw.
I mean my teeth look so good, it’s almost unreal. So I needed feedback, and I needed honest feedback. And I got it.
Our Make-up Artist shares her Smile Makeover with her Son
I’m dying, who’d you call? Who does a stylist call?
My son, my son was the first that I and I didn’t tell him.
You got a boy? How big?
He’s 13, yeah.
And so he just sees Mom’s happy?
I’m gonna cry. Oh, I walked in, and I was like, “Hey .” Big cheesy grin, like, “Hey, you notice anything?” And I smiled really big, and he was like your teeth look so good. And I was like yeah I got my teeth fixed.
That’s all I said, and he was like you look really pretty, Mom.
That’s pretty cool.
Yeah I was like thanks buddy.
From a 13 year old kid, that’s pretty big.
Bridget’s Smile Makeover: It Made Her Whole Again
But the big cheesy grin is really you. Like you would have grinned all these times of like for the last four years. I’m guessing they’re probably four thousand times you would have grinned that you just didn’t.
And that cost everybody in the room.
It cost your mom, your friends, people who know you. Once they see they broke the mold that it’s the smiling season, then it’s the smilin’ season for them. Yours look so well, has anybody said that they seem them? Has anybody been able to see them?
The Smile Results Were Immediate
I’ve noticed a few people that were like…They didn’t say or do you have anything, they just asked me, “Did I get my teeth, did I get my tooth fixed?”
Okay, people that probably know you?
Yeah, because I’m smiling.
Making the Right Impression
What was the smile makeover process like? The impressions?
It’s not that bad. You have big trays, it’s larger than what you would comfortably fit in your mouth. You just mash your teeth into the goo and hold it there, and don’t wiggle it around, and it just takes a few minutes. As long as you, you know, directly push them up, do it properly. It takes a few minutes, and you feel silly, you look kind of funny, but that’s it. It’s really simple.
You know if you get a good impression, we’re going to build that smile out as perfect as we can without it being incompatible with your mouth. But that’s always a big question. I always wondered what the stylist would say.
Everything is custom-made, so it’s going to fit you, because it is you.
Tempering Smile Expectations
I’ll tell you we didn’t do one thing different for you than we did for anyone else because I expected you to turn them down, like we didn’t detail…
Here’s what I thought, “I’m gonna take them by, she’s gonna look at them, and she’s gonna give me a professional opinion.” She’s gonna be like, “Oh they’re great, and I’m probably use them if I needed them, if I had a picture. I can see some people need them.” The same thing I would have told you.
And so I thought I’d get them back in 15 minutes. She’s gonna get them. So you don’t think it’s gonna be a problem for if they come up in a salon.
A Smile is a Lifelong Benefit
I think that to me, that makeover experience, the makeup that washes away and the hair color that needs to be retouched. That smile’s with you for the rest of your life and and you’re gonna retain that feeling of seeing yourself redone if you keep that smile to you.
If it’s a big point for those and it makes a considerable dramatic change for those people they’re gonna want the attention for making the change. They’ll go, “Who’s your dentist?”
A Smile Makes A Makeover
They’ll go no, it’s my makeup artist. The lady that that’s my hair got these teeth for me. That’s a pretty profound story, and then it’s not who did it. She did it for me. I know you’ve got a lot of work, so you know probably go, “Bil there’s 20 other people that I would have said their makeovers would be a lot better if I could just…”
And so just in this interview, the thing keeps coming up in my mind is if she seriously believes the things that she’s saying which I think you do then it’s gonna stick with other people. And they’re gonna go give my people the chance because I think you look at them as your clients.
All right, like this is my person. Like I until I’m gone, you’re mine.
It’s it’s my creation in a way, and I feel like if there’s something more I could have done to help make them feel more beautiful then it’s missing.
Bravely Sharing Her Smile Story
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the fact that it takes a lot. One is you have to have an interest and two – you got to be brave enough to go, “Yeah, I got these.” And then to be able to say, “Listen, I felt confident enough about it.”
That this is something I could have kept in it, benefited from, and just moved on. But instead I think it needs to be out there.
Brighter Image Lab Doesn’t “Sell” Smile Makeovers
And being conservative as we are, we don’t want people to feel sold. And I think from an artist point of view, everything about you comes across about them. I think they’ll appreciate that a lot, and I hope you feel appreciated for being as helping me do this.
Cool, so thank you very much.
Guys, we appreciate it.
That’s a wrap! We’re done.

Watch this amazing New Life Smile makeover for a 50 year old mechanic. This client lost his wife, then his smile. New Life Smile partner Brighter Image Lab was there to help him regain his smile, and give him a new life with a smile makeover.
I’ve never had the perfect storybook life, but Devin and me were at least happy. And together we always found a way to make things work. After she passed, I felt like I’d lost my reason to smile. Then eventually I lost my smile altogether.
My dental insurance company told me my issues were cosmetic, and yeah maybe I didn’t have any physical pain, but the life I was living sure hurt like hell. I knew my smile was holding me back but I was stuck and I just didn’t think I had any other choices.
That’s why what Brighter Image Lab did for me is so amazing. Now when I look in the mirror, I don’t just see a worn-out mechanic anymore. I see someone with a lot of life left to live. I see potential, and hope.

New Life Smile Team Member Becomes A Client Herself
This video tells the story of Jill, a New Life Smile team member who is surprised to learn she was chosen to become a client herself.
Bil: I used to tell you that taking care of yourself, that’s not a luxury. I think you believe me?
Jill: I do now.
Bil: The, um…
Jill: (whispering) I do now.
Bil: It’s going to be a long time since people met the person they should have known every day of your life. Y’know? They didn’t get to see – who they were seeing. You were taking care of them. And they would have taken care of you differently, if they could have seen you differently.
What I’m wanting you to do is be an example for people who are in the same position. If it’s been too long since you’ve done something for yourself, do it. Whether you think you can afford it – find a way to afford it. Instead of thinking you can’t find the time – find a way to take the time.
A Different Client
Bil: (offscreen) Hey guys, today we’re doing a special – kind of a different vlog. A lot of you don’t know that at Brighter Image Lab, we actually do a lot of smile makeovers, that we don’t charge for.
And… I think we do…probably over 100 a year, a least, and sometimes more than that. What we try to look for, is people whose smile is…if they had a different smile, they’d have a different life.
Just recently, we had a girl who works for us – her name’s Jill and she’s been with us for a long time. And Jill’s got the biggest heart. Man, she’s just got the biggest heart you’ll ever know. Just super compassionate.
Jill’s in charge of what we call “New Life Smile”. We take applications from people who’ve signed up and told us their story. They tell us their story and send us there pictures and she’s the one that goes and looks at the pictures and see if she can get someone to put in an empty space.
What you don’t know, is that we want to surprise Jill. Jill broke her tooth and it’s causing discoloration. Ever since she’s cracked it, it’s been a big deal for her. She takes care of her teeth, it’s just they don’t look like I think she wants them to look.
Jill Couldn’t Find Happy Photos
And then we heard something bad the other day. That made me feel bad. I heard her tell some girl at work that she was on Facebook, and one of the things on Facebook was “Upload 4 pictures of when you were really happy”. And she said, “I couldn’t upload any pictures”.
And I will tell you, Jill’s a very happy person. She comes in with a spirit that that’s bigger than the room. She’s always real big at making things go really well for us. So what we want to do today is, we know we have one more spot, for some New Life Smiles and we want to do one more makeover before the season got going too crazy.
Surprising Jill With A Smile Makeover
And so…I’m going to surprise Jill by telling her she’s receiving a smile makeover. What I hope to show people, by doing Jill’s surprise makeover…is that, taking care of yourself is not a luxury. And many of those people that benefit from your help…would love the fact that you did enough for yourself to have good energy and to feel proud of yourself, and to bring your best self to every situation.
And sometimes good people get caught with great intentions, and they get caught putting themselves last.
I’m hoping what we’ll see is that, she’ll look more powerful, and she’ll look like she has more energy, and it’ll bring out her spirit, and I think it’ll match her personality – it’s who she really is.
So follow with me, and we’ll take it from there. Let’s just see how it goes.
Jill Receives A Smile Makeover
Thank you, guys.
Jill: (off camera) Oh wow. Yeah, we gotta help this girl.
Bil: Some of these girls, I feel like, are just doing it for the fun of it. This girl has perfect teeth.
Jill: Yeah some of them aren’t too bad. You tend to want to go with someone who’s a little younger. I know that’s terrible, but…
Jill: I don’t know.
Bil: I think that we’ve had enough young people.
Bil: (laughing) Don’t you?
Jill: Yeah we need some older people.
Bil: We’ve only got one more space to fill. What I want to do is… I can’t find the person I’m looking for. I want to do yours.
Bil: I want to do yours. So if you will, let’s just do yours. We go over all these cases, and you’re always trying to get these people – you’re trying to find their story. And their story’s not any better than yours. So let’s just work on you today.
No Less Important
Bil: These people aren’t not less important to us, but you’re not less important than any of these people. Do me a favor and let’s just stop and go do it today. Let’s just to it right now.
Bil: …or just, yeah. How long has it been since you…
Jill: 1992. Remember when the glamour shots were big?
Jill: Yeah. (laughing) I had a glamour shot.
Bil: And then what? Just, life took over?
Jill: Yeah. 4 Children. And uh, we had a restaurant, and home school, and I just was too busy. And now I’m a grandmother…
Bil: How many?
Bil: 4 Grand-babies?
Jill: 4 Grand-babies
Bil: Getting big?
Jill: Uh, 3 to … 7. 3 to 7, but I think… I think I was kind of in a rut. I guess. You know, because I’m 4 years divorced. You know…I’m watching my grandkids and my parents are aging, and I’m helping there, and working and I was always on the back burner. And I just thought, “okay well that’s it.”
Not that I’m ‘done’, ‘it’s over’…But like ‘okay this is my life’. Okay. I’m good. So.
Taking Time To Care For Yourself
Bil: A lot of people take care, and then the days pass and next thing you know, it’s been a month, and then it’s been a year. I know you work a lot for everybody that you care about.
But there comes a time to where you gotta make sure that you’re not invisible to you. So that people can see you too.
Jill: I got lost
Bil: We did this in a couple of hours.
Bil: What’s weird is, I’ve known you for years.
Bil: and we probably wouldn’t have known…I don’t know if we really knew the value of our work. I don’t know if we would have told people, “Hey you should try these.”
You’ve helped me do thousands of these. You…were kind of surprised that we said, ‘Hey, let’s do this.’
The Smile Makes The Makeover
Bil: She would have done your hair and you would’ve gone right back to the same thing.
Bil: Or if somebody would’ve just done your makeup it would’ve been right back to the same thing. But if you just take the time to put yourself totally back together, then I think that… I’m hoping what you’ll be is an example…For a hundred women, that sit in front of the TV everyday, doing babysitting. Or doing something, that’s helping someone else, and saying, ‘Listen…Whatever’s holding you back, doesn’t have to hold you back.’
And the #1 thing that holds people back, is their smile. But if you do any 1 thing, and you DON’T do the smile it’s doesn’t come together. But when you do, do the smile, a lot of those other things aren’t necessary anymore.
I’m incredibly shocked at how wonderful your smile looks. And I…
Jill: I agree!
A Real Smile Makeover
Bil: And I think it opens us up to – not just the younger crowd. I think there are a million women out there, that are going to say…”THAT convinced me that this is for real.”
It gives me a lot more energy of who we can offer these to. And bringing it all together…It just took it…
Jill: I’m just amazed! I…Because I though ‘okay, it’ll be good’, you know? But this is like – WOW I’m…
A Smile Makes You Stronger
Bil: It is unthinkable. But what I like is, is that, I think it’s gonna make you stronger. I think you’re gonna do more, with good energy. And I think you’re gonna do what you can to have 4 corners of your life. Where you’re still ‘mom’, you’re still ‘grandma…
Jill: And that’s good, yeah.
Bil: But… the people that need to meet you are going to meet you, and the places you need to go, you’re going to feel welcomed. Not like, you’re old or that you’ve worn down or that ‘they’re not going to accept me’ and that anybody in your category is going to be somebody that wants to have you at their table.
And, I think a smile had a whole lot to do with just going, “I can look exceptional!”. “I can look great!” I’ve been very proud to make this happen, and I thank you so much for working with us. And then again, I always thank people…
Changing Smiles Changes Lives
It takes a lot for people to show their ‘before & afters’. What I’m hoping they’ll realize, is that, not only do they believe that what you’re doing – you’re doing because you want other people to benefit from it but that you really care about people, being able to get what could be made available to them. (that they think is impossible)
And I can’t thank you enough for sharing that with me. And I look forward to showing the people more pictures.
Jill: (crying) Yeah
Bil: And I can’t wait to see you send some pictures of your grandkids and people seeing you be your best you. And I’ll hear those stories, and I’ll share it with these people.
I’m gonna ask any body on YouTube, if they have any comments for Jill to leave the comments and I’ll get her to respond.
Jill: (laughing) Oh really?
Bil: They’re going to have a million questions. Okay? We’ll work it out. We’ll make it happen. But anyway, so we’re going to wrap it up today. Thank you so much.
Comment & Share
And if you have any more questions, please comment, please subscribe, please…share it, and that’ll get us done.
Thank you, more than you know.

$1,500 Porcelain Veneers Alternative with No Cosmetic Dentist!
This video explains how our client got a porcelain veneers alternative for $1,500 with no cosmetic dentist!
My name is Giselle and I’m from Long Island. I am currently in my 50s, and for a long time I’ve been having difficulties with my teeth.
Since I was 13 years old, I had gone to a dentist who asked me, “If an angel came and tapped you on the shoulder, what would you ask for?” One of the things I asked for was whiter teeth, and straighter teeth. And I have to say that, um, it’s been an ordeal. I’ve been trying to find your stuff for some many years now.
She sent us an email, told us about her story and told what he had done to her, and so we said we’ll do it. That’s what we’re here to do today to see how we can change her smile.
I can’t wait to hear her story and you know I read about it, but I haven’t heard it from her firsthand.
I’m very attractive person with a really nice smile. It’s just not lined up properly.
I have a question for you.
How did you hear about us?
I went online and I started doing a lot of research on YouTube. That’s where I get a lot of my information, and I came across…I think I’ve seen only videos that way.
Trying On Her Porcelain Veneers Alternative
Should we try the top?
I designed these based on style…
…To be a little sharper, I didn’t want you to lose to personality…
So I did my best. Let’s see if it fits.
Thank you. Oh my gosh. They fit.
How do they look? They look freaking amazing. I’m trying to see if there is anything I could do.
I feel like I can laugh.
Well, we’re going to see. You want to try the bottom one in first? You want the bottom one too?
Let’s get used to this one first, because let me say this, your bite’s going to adjust after three days. Let’s put the bottom ones in and see if they fit.
Hitting The Smile Lottery
Because if that’s true, you’re going to get a full porcelain veneers alternative. I normally don’t ask people to do two at the same time because it takes days to get acclimated to foreign objects in your mouth. But because your teeth are so attractive right now it’s kinda like in Vegas if you win once and win twice you want to go and win a third time.
So let’s try it. If this doesn’t work, if it doesn’t fit right it’s going to take longer to get adjusted to two.
But there’s no way we want to walk away without seeing it. Make sense?
Yes I can say…
I’m so happy.
…but a lot of times what we do is self-satisfying, like we know that we did it.
The Emotional Side of a Smile Makeover
Oh my gosh. I need a minute here.
You got yours. Now, you’re gonna have to push these down, make sense?
Alright, let’s start in the back, right?
They’re in? Perfect.
Let me see. Oh my god! Perfect. You have a smile that doesn’t really bite closed.
So you kinda have an open smile.
And it’s gonna be pretty cool.
I like that open smile.
I do too. It makes you look like a kid.
First Time Wearing Porcelain Veneers Alternative
You never tried these in before two seconds ago.
…and I’ve pulled them out of a steel case?
So this is…you’re already talking to me and you already having conversation in 30 seconds.
You know I was, you can, I think you can tell I was scared to give you both. In five minutes, it just looks so good.
I love them. I love them.
They look so amazing. They’re great.
I had all these concerns, they look amazing. Look at your points!
I love that!
I love that!
My job now is to see…just to do what you would do if you do my job. When no one else is around and if I can detect from any side of that tooth whether anyone would ever think that you did not get porcelain veneers.
Looks Like Porcelain Veneers Without a Cosmetic Dentist!
They look like porcelain veneers. My mother just got porcelain veneers, and she spent a fortune on her teeth.
And you feel fine with the bite?
I do. I do. Only on the inside just a bit.
Because it’s…give me a few days, yes.
Yes, I think so.
Wow! They look amazing.
They’re perfectly straight, all your details.
And all your chisels. We did it.
Yes, yes. I’m gonna do better.
New Smile Appreciation
You know I want to thank you, but let me say this. I’ve had people tell me through comments, you need to thank you for me. Don’t thank here for you. Don’t thank her for your company, thank her for me. I am amazed at your results.
Thank you, the opportunity to help others is major. Sometimes people don’t reach out when they should and I’m glad that I reached out and filled out the application and really I’m still thrilled.
And I have to say that I am thrilled with the porcelain veneers alternativethat I received and I have straight and white teeth and they don’t feel bulky whatsoever. It didn’t change the way my actual teeth up here, they took my teeth and make them better
This New Life Smile makeover was filmed in Long Island, New York, but we help clients all over the world in cities like: Sydney, Tweed Heads, Wollongong, New South Wales; Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Victoria; Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Queensland; Perth, Adelaide, Newcastle-Maitland, Canberra- Queanbeyan, New South Wales; Hobart, Tasmania, and any area in Australia.
This video explains how a former Instasmile client Maria turned to Brighter Image Lab to help her get the New Life Smile she needed.
Today, I’m flying from Dallas-Fort Worth to Orlando, Florida because I received an email from a young lady who spent her Christmas money trying to buy a dental veneer online, and it just didn’t work for her.
Spring Break in Orlando, Florida
We landed in Orlando, Florida today. I can tell because it’s spring break, and a lot of kids are here with Mickey Mouse hats on.
We actually came all the way to Orlando with a veneer that we’ve never tried on. We didn’t send a blank to see if it fits, we just went ahead and designed it and we booked it because it was last moment and it was the only way we were going to get here.
So I said I would never do it again, but guess what? I did it again, and so it will be it will be the first time that I speak with this person or see if their impression was perfect, which is always a big part of that.
Introducing New Life Smile
Guys, what I want to tell you is this is the kind of smile makeover that we really want to do. We call them New Life Smile, because we think if they had the smile they were looking for, it would give them the kind of confidence it takes for you to be their best self.
It’s pretty neat to be early in the day, and think that in a couple hours from now you’re going to see some people smile like they’ve never smiled before. Those are the people that we try to help.
Finding People Who Need New Smiles
We can make a smile for anyone that wants one. What we really want to do is find the people who need them, and we always try to find the people that we think need us the most. So go with me for the rest of the trip, and let’s see how this smile makeover works out?
Before we got started, we interviewed the family. I think every time like she would be in the conversation, she would feel uncomfortable to me. Like talking some one like every time she talks to me she tips her head a little bit.
Interviewing Maria – A Former Client
I think she got used to it at the time, but it’s like with other people exchanges, she gets a little bit shy, she just looks the other way.
Like my friend’s mom, like when she meets them, like I kind of get embarrassed too because like they would have like perfect teeth and like her teeth…I could tell I would I look at her talking to them, she’s like trying not to show her teeth.
She’s outgoing, and she loves taking pictures.
That’s her favorite thing to do.
She’s a cool mom too.
Like, when there’s a camera she’s a happy person, but when there’s a camera, the camera’s shining at her. If you get like shy.
A Disney Dreamer
Let’s get started by telling me, how did how did you hear about us?
I’ve been wanting to audition for Disney for a long time as like a character, and you need the perfect smile, you know? So it’s something that was stopping me from doing that. So it was like you know what? I can actually go ahead and and do that once I get a perfect smile.
But from what I understand, you had a couple bad experiences?
Tell me about them, what happened?
You Get What You Pay For
We were watching informational TV about…it said perfect smile veneers. I’m watching. I’m like oh my god, only like $14.99! You know, and then you get a free set, shipping handling. I’m like you know what why not?
I was so excited to get them, I remember I opened it with my daughter Christina. So as soon as I put it on, my daughter’s burst out laughing on the floor. Like, and I looked in the mirror, and I literally started crying. Like I was just laughing so hard like of how funny it looked.
You were fortunate to have people around you that you can talk to. A lot of people who talk to you don’t have anyone to call, and they call us thinking that with us, it was us, and it wasn’t us. Then you met with somebody else?
Becoming A Client
Yes, then I went on YouTube, which I should’ve done before and the very first thing that I went in for veneers was watching instasmile reviews. I looked at reviews and reviews and I was like, oh my god it’s actually legit, because you know the reviews were really good.
So finally when I became a client, I didn’t even look in the mirror. Like I couldn’t even put it all was so shaky. I was shaking and nervous, and I was already like almost crying and I looked and turned around, and she saw me, they saw me and they were just like same thing. Like, Mom, no.
Yeah, I read that in your email.
Yeah. They didn’t want to be mean, but of course they’re laughing – they’re teenagers. They’re very blunt and open and I look in the mirror, and I’m like I just I don’t know. I’m about to cry now cause I feel so…
Sensitive About Smiles
You bought from two different people. People’s smile, when it comes to improvement, it’s very sensitive to them. And so you try to do some things that make it work, and one of the reasons I wanna share stories because we try to take people that we think would have a different life.
Like where they could just have some advantages. We truly believe that life is about advantages, and we think that a nice smile goes a long ways.
It was just disappointment. I write them you know and and their email back to me was pretty much like, “Oh, basically you cannot get a refund.” So I’m like, okay really, you know? So what’s my other option after being a client? You know, like affordable option?
So I went back to YouTube and I looked, and I saw you guys and I really I think for the three days straight videos and videos and videos and videos. And I’m like okay, this is it. Like people were actually saying how it’s way better than being with instasmile.
Differences Between Brighter Image Lab and Instasmile
The best way for me to explain is I always tell people we’re not better we’re just different. In the same way that you would call a skateboard a car, they’re just different. Our goal is to only complete with doctors that do cosmetic dentistry. So we almost always get it right to 95% of time but there’s always a 5% chance we’ll have to re-do it.
So I think we just get started and see what we can do. If you don’t mind, I’m going to compare it to one of your other ones? So, from what I understand this was the first one?
And it’s kind of weird, and so what I want to do is compare these. Look how thin this is. It’s just everything the thicknesses in all sorts of stuff, and it’s just overall smaller. But the fit is what matters, how they’re going to be really tight. They should change you and its gonna feel weird at first. So let’s see what we’ve got. Just, here we go.
Trying On “REAL” Veneers from Brighter Image Lab
Oh my gosh…
We’re going to find out in a second. It looks amazing, let me see. They look good.
Look shiny and clean!
Let’s see what you think.
Wow! Oh my god, I can see..How real they look. They’re perfect, like so thin!
Yeah your teeth look perfectly straight, but those look like veneers. They’re amazing. It just depends on what you guys think, but I think they look amazing.
They are! Oh my God!
Former Client Shocked by Her New Smile
I’m speechless. My God It’s like perfect teeth. I need a chance to look at it, but I think they’re amazing. I don’t know what I could do to do them any better. What’s the biggest shock going through your mind right now?
Oh my God, how like real they look.
Don’t you think that the people at Disney would be glad to see this smile?
Yeah of course!
This is like perfect, I just need to practice my speech, your pose, your your face your your selfie picture yeah there we go.
I mean I’m like this selfie queen, she calls me the selfie queen. I’m always taking pictures and makeup pictures and you know. And I want to start recording videos of me putting makeup on. Ok, so this is like what I needed.
All your pictures in the world, I don’t think anyone who knows you will ever think that those aren’t porcelain veneers.
Yeah, and what it will do is buy you all the time that you need in the world to put the funds together if you ever want to have your teeth reconstructed originally.
Saving Up For A Permanent Solution
But you don’t have to do it in a year. You don’t have to exactly do it in 6 months time. Here, you do it when you he gets a pro baseball contract.
There you go!
You see what I’m saying? I think we did a pretty good job.
Changing Smiles and Changing Lives
We try to do these smiles to where we make an effort to record it. If we think we can do a remarkable job that we think will change the person’s life, and I think that when I’m gone and this is old and all over with, you’ll have a family to sees you smile more. You’ll have friends and see you do more on Instagram.
You’ll take more pictures, bigger smiling pictures, than you’ve ever taken with your family.
This absolutely looks amazing.
Yeah, they’re beautiful, they’re just perfect.
That’s the word, is perfect. Like perfect. They’re perfect!
A Whole New World For Maria
You’re going to see like a whole difference in her like Facebook page and Instagram. Like her teeth now instead of like smiling. Without her teeth she’s gonna be smiling more comfortably when she’s talking to people and showing her teeth more and laughing and yes if instead of smiling like in every picture she’s going to start smiling with her teeth.
Her smile gives her so much happiness, is basically what she said. From her experience from being older, she doesn’t trust companies that promise a lot, but the results are…
Yeah I know, and she’s very, very impressed, how you guys were patient and…
Thank you so much.
A Recommendation From Maria
You guys are very trustworthy, and we recommend it to a lot of people.
Thank you so much. I’m very much…
Thank you for you return the happiness to my daughter, for whole family. Much thank you.
I think you’ll agree this turned out to be a good story, and we can call this day a success. Now, we just need to work on getting home. Working our way back to Dallas.
So it’s 10:00, we’re just getting ready to go home, our plane boards in a few minutes. It’s been a long day, but I can’t imagine it being worth more.
I look forward to doing more of these. You can tell she loves her family, and I think you can tell that she’s going to do good things with her veneers.
What we’re hoping is is that people will see that the veneers that we design and are really truly designed to be competitive with a cosmetic dentist and I think in her case you’ll see that if it weren’t absolutely perfect, she wouldn’t wear it.
And I think you’ll see her daughter would be a would do everything the world and her not to wear them, and her mother wouldn’t have told her her hey these look great for you it was nice to see her family really like this.
A Changed Mom
Her smile, I could tell that in a few minutes they saw a changed mom. They saw a pretty lady that was smiling, and a lot more than they had seen her smile, if at all. And it was pretty contagious in the room when she started smiling. Everyone was smiling, and I could tell that they liked seeing her smile.
And I can tell you the same effect with me. I can tell you that she’s got different outlook on her ability to smile in public now, and I can’t wait to see the selfies, and I can’t wait to share them with you. I think that her smile is going to come across and be a benefit to everybody she shares it with.
A Smile Makes All The Difference
These are the type of vlogs, if you like to do a new life smile, a smile that makes a difference. We designed this smile today to fit her perfectly, and we think it did. We think it matched her character 100%.
I think it gave her the look that she was looking for if she was getting veneers, and how she would have those veneers designed, and I’m just very, very appreciative. Really thankful that it all worked out the way it did. Amazing when you see something like that who says, “I’ve been covering my mouth for a while, every time I smiled big.”
If you liked what you saw today, please subscribe, and if you know someone who you think would change their life go ahead and ask them to sign up for a new life smile. Can’t wait to see what you guys think about the results.
Let’s just end it here. Goodbye.
We filmed this New Life Smile for a client in Orlando, Florida. We would like for you to know we also serve clients in cities like: Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Germany, Paris, Marseille, Lyon, France, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds, Bristol, Nottingham, Britain United Kingdom, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Scotland, Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, Naples, Italy, Helsinki, Finland, Copenhagen, Denmark, Prague, Czech Republic, Sofia, Bulgaria, Brussels, Antwerp, Belgium, Lisbon, Portugal, Vienna, Austria, Athens, Greece, Stockholm, Sweden, Bratislava, Slovakia, Bucharest, Romania, Bucharest, Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Ireland, Belfast, Derry, Northern Ireland, Norway, Oslo, Netherlands, Amsterdam, Monaco, Monaco, Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, Warsaw, Poland, and any area in Europe.
Smile Makeover For Only $800 When a Dentist Wanted $18K
Watch Anna’s smile makeover. What is incredible about this story is that her dentist wanted $18,000! We were able to make her a new smile for under $1,000. We made a smile for her, and we can do it for you. See for yourself how we did it below.
Tooth Decay is a Major Issue
Tooth decay is a big deal in this country and it’s preventable. In fact if I’ve never said it before it’s the number one most preventable disease in this country and we’re not doing enough to cure it.
It gets bad and then within a few years of 18 people have decayed it so bad that people go WOW. They look at it like its social like it’s a social class like they just neglected it and people don’t understand the power of bacteria or how quick a smile can deteriorate.
Our story came from that she was 18 years old her teeth started going bad. At some point she went to dentist and was handed a bill for $18,000.
$18,000 or nothing is not a choice. At Brighter Image Lab we try to do New Life Smile Makeovers because we think that anybody that’s sitting there with a smile is holding them back is not living their full life.
I think that we were able to show this young lady that you have a choice.
Leaving for South Dakota
Hey guys I’m at the airport today, and we’re flying to Rapid City, South Dakota.
This young lady is 28 years old with two kids. Since she was 18 years old she’s had a smile that she’s been embarrassed with. She gave me a story that said I went to the dentist and tried to get something done before it got worse.
Dental Costs Make New Smiles Unattainable
How do you tell a mom at 18 or 20 years old that it’s gonna cost $18,000 or we can’t do anything for you and then let them leave and continue to be embarrassed? We don’t do that anywhere else in society. We don’t do it anywhere.
…But she had gross embarrassment and nobody has helped her. There’s not anyone to turn to.
What we’re hoping is she’s gonna get a new smile, that it goes well, that she gets to see herself in a better light.
She’s young enough to where I don’t think her kids have seen her smile, I don’t think her husband sees her smile, hopefully it’ll all go well.
Follow me as we go along, and I’ll see at the end of this trip.
Arriving in South Dakota
We’re at the airport. We got it. We made it. Rapid City, South Dakota is a sunken, true treasure. If anybody’s not been here, they ought to look it up. But this smile makeover wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Lori.
She took it last minute. We called 40 different places and they kept saying no, we can’t do that much work…no, we don’t want the responsibility of it not working…no, it may be too hard, and Lori said come on in. If you have a need we’re gonna help you take care of it, and she did it. You want to talk about a first-class operation?
Ready For A New Smile
When I heard y’all were coming I was very ecstatic and excited and nervous, but I was ready for a new smile.
I’ve seen you change already, like, what I see is what I knew I would see, and when this magic’s done the whole village should have been here for you since you were 18. Can you tell me what happened? What caused it?
Um I said the dentist told me he that he believes its genetic. Yeah, cause my mother had very bad teeth too. After I had my first child, they just started getting really brittle.
But I’m telling, you just being happier and just seeing you here from when I saw you walking in it’s a difference of half-full or half-empty.
This Severe Makeover Was Harder Than We Thought
Everything was two or three times harder than we thought it was gonna be with more to do it wasn’t just let’s start and get finished.
Oh man, I think that having a new smile will bring me out of the house more and take me to do things with my children and actually be able to go out and have dinner or have a drink with my husband on a weekend.
Not being able to smile has brought on depression in my life and anxiety from it. I can’t enjoy plenty of things with my kids and my husband and you know, just as much as small as sitting around watching a comedy and they’re laughing and I’m not laughing because I don’t want to show my teeth.
You Can Always Improve Yourself
I would tell people at home that you’re never too old to have a great smile. You’re…You can always improve yourself.
I think if I could go back and tell myself something I would say to march straight to the dentist and get something done right now or it’s gonna, they’re gonna be ruined in no time…
…And when they tell me $18,000 I thought, um, I’ve got about three thousand dollars I can afford. It upset me, and I felt small. I felt like there was nothing else I could do.
The Dentist Didn’t Even Care
I felt like the dentist didn’t even care that I was…He could tell that I was self-conscious, right, and I felt like he didn’t even care.
Even when it’s time for us to go out and have dinner and things like that I want to dress up. I want to fix my hair and make-up, but I don’t. I feel like there’s no point whether I put it on or not my smile is still not gonna be there.
Oh, I wish every day I think about it every day that I wish I would have been able to do this sooner! I believe that with a new smile I will always be having my make-up on, my hair done, and I have a feeling that my wardrobe is about to get bigger!
The Smile Makeover Begins
I’m very nervous, but excited.
You’ve been going all day.
And so, if you don’t mind…This one is our model version.
See how polished that is?
I want you to try that, let’s put it in, and you’ll have the biggest smile.
No, you’re gonna go right in.
We’re there. it’s gonna take a second, you just stay with it.
A Severe Makeover Feels Weird
How weird does it feel?
It feels weird.
Does it feel bulky?
You gotta give it a few seconds.
This Smile Makeover Looks Real
And we’re gonna try a different…You see that? No one can do that, and you haven’t seen enough of it. See they, I’m as close as you can be. Let’s look, here, you look amazing! Absolutely amazing!
I’m so close to you that I can’t tell and if I can’t tell nobody can tell.
You look amazing.
You look at the detail between the two teeth.
No one’s ever going to be looking at your teeth like that. I wish you could see this.
Anna Sees Her Makeover For The First Time
Look in the mirror. Look who that is. For the first time that’s not anybody anyone is going to say no to. That’s a lady who came in and she’s amazing. You could be hired for real estate, you could be hired for sales. You could be hired for almost anything because they need you in the room. Because this girl’s so well put together, she’s amazing.
That’s my mom. This is my wife. There’s my daughter. You see what I’m saying? That’s my best friend. She had a long time with the sentencing that she didn’t deserve.
There Should Be Better Dental Options
$18,000 was not your only option. You should have had a better choice. Your little boy…I shouldn’t meet you before your little boy, or your daughter. She’s gonna can you imagine an example just how radiant a woman my mom, my mom decided to come back?
Please tell me you see what I see?
You don’t want to teach her not to smile. Don’t want to teach her all that. You should teach her to be excited!
I’m very excited! I can’t wait to my kids see it, or my husband.
Great First Impression
I have to tell you that I’m very impressed by the young lady we worked with. You know, all we ever see from the from the people who we pick for a New Life Smile is people that we think would actually have a lot of potential if they had a new smile.
I can tell you that hopefully you’ll see in the video that this young lady has a lot to say and a lot to do and she has a whole lot to offer.
At the end we get to meet a family and one of the most beautiful families you’ve ever met in your life.
The Severe Makeover Was A Challenge
I feel real good about what we did today. I have to say it was it was more of a challenge than I thought it was going to be. We had a situation where we came in and saw the town and Mount Rushmore was amazing.
I get the feeling that if you come in the summer you’ll never leave, but I also get the feeling that if you come in the winter you probably won’t ever come back.
You know there’s a lot of scenery here, a lot of things to do. It was a good, good, good trip. It was a quick in-and-out we had a great time, but the job that we did was tough.
Learning To Smile
To always train yourself to smile without showing your teeth it’s just not good. We’ve seen it in the past for people whose daughters aren’t used to seeing them smile, and we know as grown-ups, your babies learn how to how to interact based on how they see you interact.
I saw this young girl walk in an average mom that had been neglected with not a whole lot of extra.
You know people say that, you know cosmetic teeth are, just I mean the looks of your teeth are just cosmetic. That is so incredibly wrong, and I don’t know how else to say it.
This smile makeover did everything it could do. It’s amazing that the smile can do that little bitty of a thing imagine what it cost her not to have it for ten years and she is somebody that everybody should proud of and now you can tell her husband is already proud of her. You can tell her family thinks the world of her.
This is the kind of severe makeover that we want to do. We hope that you’re impressed by her before-and-afters. We hope you enjoy it and we’re gonna end it here.
This smile makeover happened in Rapid City, SD, but we hear stories from clients all over in areas like Sturgis, SD, Casper, WY, Grand Island, NE, Omaha, NE, Sioux Falls, SD, Sioux City, IA, Minneapolis, MN, St. Paul, MN, Bismarck, ND, Great Falls, MT, Cheyenne, WY, Fort Collins, CO, Denver, CO, Colorado Springs, CO, Manhattan, KS, Topeka, KS, Kansas City, MO, Overland Park, KS, Idaho Falls, ID, Boise, ID, Spokane, WA, Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Salt Lake City, UT, Provo, UT, Grand Forks, MN, and Aberdeen, SD
Comparing Brighter Image Lab Cost To Dentist Prices
Imagine needing to change your smile. However, after going to the dentist, you receive a dental treatment plan that’s more expensive than your car. Instead of searching for the Brighter Image Lab cost, you do what most people do: fold up the treatment plan and set it aside, and continue to deal with the pain of a bad smile.
Many people are left in this predicament and their hopes are gone. A Smile Makeover should not cost $10,000 or more. The Lab Direct Process from Brighter Image Lab is specifically designed to save you thousands. Compare the cost to Invisalign dentists charging up to $8000 for adult braces. Our Instant alternatives are only $795!
Brighter Image Lab Cost Challenges the Dental Industry
“At Brighter Image Lab, we didn’t set out to challenge the dental industry.” says Bil Watson, Director of Brighter Image Lab.
“We saw our clients struggling with severe smile problems, and we saw that most of them were out of options. We didn’t spend thousands of hours to painstakingly develop revolutionary new products because we wanted to.
”In the past, people turned to dentists as the sole source of information for a smile solution. With the advancement of the internet, many people are now looking beyond the dental industry for less expensive alternatives.
For most, a real solution just is not attainable. Dental veneers, dentures, and implants are “high end” products within the dental industry and most people aren’t looking for a “high end” product. They need an affordable answer to allow them to smile again.
The Brighter Image Lab Cost Created A Solution
In 2010, Brighter Image Lab created the Press On Veneers to answer the demand for these affordable products. In the beginning, it was a struggle. No one had created a product like this without a dentist, and it wasn’t easy.
The consensus from early clients was, “It’s not perfect, but will you just keep trying? I need this more than you know.
”Brighter Image Lab continued to work on design and made investments in software, technology, packaging and streamlining the process to where they are today. The results from keeping the Brighter Image Lab cost low are amazing.
Now, in a turn of events, dentists are sending their patients to Brighter Image Lab, especially since the introduction of the signature BilVeneers product in 2017. The industry changed because one man saw a need and transformed it into an opportunity.
New Life Smile
Brighter Image Lab is now looking to provide a free solution to those unable to afford even their low cost. Clients who submit their “Smile Story” online are considered for a New Life Smile by the board. Recipients receive a product from Brighter Image Lab absolutely free thanks to generous donations from online donors.
Mr Watson sums it up best, “When people ask us why we did it, we tell them we did it because somebody had to.”
The latest craze in removable veneers is a company called Instasmile, but is it right for you? When you compare Brighter Image vs Instasmile, we think you might consider us. Continue scrolling to find out why.
Brighter Image or Instasmile – Which one is right for me?
Keep reading to find out!
When we first started hearing from Instasmile clients, they thought they had purchased Press On Veneers at a reduced rate. These discount veneers are lacking in quality, design, and function in our opinion. While we feel our Press On Veneers are a bargain, they continue to be priced from $795. No company can offer you a lower cost for the same quality product as Press On Veneers.
Quality or Price
Too many of Instasmile clients will troll our satisfied clients on YouTube trying to convince people to purchase their products. They all claim it is the exact same thing with a lower price.
The fact is that in every instance we see in hand and on Instasmile review videos, we believe our product is more durable, feature a better design, and look more realistic than Instasmile clip on offerings. We admit, their price is lower than ours. Do you really want to sacrifice quality for price on a contrivance you put in your mouth?
Brighter Image or Instasmile: Outsourced or Lab Direct
Many clients reported that they had to send their Instasmile impressions to the United Kingdom for an inordinate amount of time before they received their order. We design and make all of our Press On Veneers and BilVeneers in our lab.
We can’t say whether Instasmile does all of the work in their “lab”. They say they do, but a quick check of their Chicago office seemed to be only a forwarding address where their employee sent impressions to the United Kingdom.
Do You Finance?
Some people can afford more than $25 a week for teeth covers. If this is you, and you don’t mind the way Instasmile products look, then by all means, buy their product.
Financing is available to those clients who have no means to purchase even the small cost of our Press On Veneers. Our third party provider is always happy to assist those who are unable or unwilling to purchase their new smile.
Since partnering with the New Life Smile charity, Brighter Image Lab is now offering the opportunity to clients to receive a set of Press On Veneers for free, thanks to online donors.
New Life Smile Partner Brighter Image Lab Gave Homeless Woman a Reason to Smile Again
New Life Smile partner Brighter Image Lab offered her a new smile and asked to document her story.
Watch this video of Dee, a homeless woman who had very little reason to smile. Dee tried to save to get her smile fixed at a dentist office, but she never could save enough. She knew she needed a smile to improve her life.
When Dee walked in to the corporate office, she was looking for a job. She was looking for a way to earn enough money to rent an apartment, to be able to visit her kids again. The moment Dee walked in the door, it changed the direction of not only her life, but the direction of Brighter Image Lab.
New Life Smile Partner Transformed Dee
A transformation occurred when Dee Erwin shared her story with the staff at Brighter Image Lab. She was homeless and had lost custody of her children. Every attempt to get back on her feet was met with rejection and ridicule.
“Temp agencies wouldn’t send me out to any good jobs. Anything in an office environment was out of the question. I couldn’t even get a job interview to work as a cashier, because people didn’t want their customers to see my teeth. Even with my years of management experience, they would put me in entry-level overnight positions or have me work with the janitorial staff. It just became very depressing.”
Her embarrassing smile forced her into menial jobs making low wages and kept her from achieving her dream of one day getting visitation privileges with her children. Her life’s path was was at a dead-end.
Bil Meets Dee
Bil Watson, Director of Brighter Image Lab, recounts the day he met Dee.
“When we first spoke with Dee, we could tell that there was a lot more going on than just a problem with her smile. You could see there was a spark hidden somewhere, and it was just covered up by years of hardship. It’s unfortunate, but it’s something we see quite often. People with bad teeth eventually begin to segregate themselves, and it’s a hard thing to pull yourself out of. So we wanted to do more. We knew we could help.”
Brighter Image Lab Becomes New Life Smile Partner
Brighter Image Lab did more than help. Mr. Watson set the designers to work on improving her smile. Meanwhile, his team at the corporate office partnered with several local businesses to surprise Dee with a full makeover. Dee was transformed in front of cameras from a homeless woman with no foreseeable future into a professional business woman with the ability to pursue a career and her dream of seeing her children again.
“They bought me new clothes and sent me to a high-end salon. It is just incredible, and I feel complete with my amazing new smile! Putting my veneers in for the first time, totally overwhelmed me. Everyone in the room was crying, including me. It was one of those ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experiences.”
Brighter Image Lab Asks For New Life Smile Stories
Moved by the experience, Mr. Watson began asking people on brighterimagelab.com for their “Smile Story”, and received thousands of submissions. Searching after business hours, he found a suitable charity, New Life Smile, to partner with Brighter Image Lab to help people like Dee achieve the smile they deserve, but often cannot afford.
Less Expensive Smiles Aren’t Affordable
“To tell someone like Dee that they need to come up with $17,000 is the same thing as telling they they need to come up with $17 million. It’s an equally unattainable number. People need a reasonably-priced dental choice that doesn’t include dentistry; that’s what we do at Brighter Image Lab. It’s not just about changing smiles, it’s literally changing lives.”
Looking to improve the smiles of under-served people worldwide, New Life Smile has helped nearly 100 people to date. New Life Smile is actively seeking new applicants to help as well as new donors to help fund these new smiles. They are on the forefront of changing the world, one smile at a time.
Brighter Image Lab has also endorsed Austin Children’s Services to help provide smiles by preventing child abuse and neglect in the Austin area.
