Life Changing Makeover Provided by Brighter Image Lab
Watch how Brighter Image Lab provides Stacy with a life changing makeover.
I wanted you to know who picked you. I just want you to meet Stacy. She’s the lady who…
You look beautiful.
She’s the one that was all the detailing on your veneer, but, I thank you so much.
Stacy Receives A Life Changing Makeover
Hey, guys, my name’s Bil Watson, I’m with Brighter Image Lab, and today we’re doing a Smile Makeover review for Stacy.
Stacey’s 27 years old, she’s a mom of two. She submitted an application to be considered for a smile (life changing makeover). I asked her, I said can you be here at 8:30 and she showed up straight on time.
One of the things that we notice is there’s a little girl up front that’s just pretty guarded and then as the day went by, it just became more and more to see how she opens up.
It was important to me to see the transformation, and then, even when we got to the salon and we did the make up and things, we were good. We got our pictures, and we saw it. What was, what you don’t know is on the way home, the first person that she called was her little girl.
And her little girl goes, “Mama, I don’t know you.” Know like, didn’t know her. She’s four years old, which means if Stacey hasn’t smiled in four years, she’s going to see her mom smile like she smiled every day of her life in high school. Every day of her life when she was at…
You know, it’s kind of weird because for a while I mean for a little bit where everyone’s going to see her first smile that hasn’t, that didn’t know her four years ago.
Shocking Dental Costs
I heard the conversation first-hand, and they were just in shock. Like it was a different person, and I don’t think makeup and hair would have done that much for them. If anybody wanted to do this for her, the conversation would have been how do we get a loan?
How do we go get $10,000? How do we go get $15,000? If so many of the little girls who think that this is for them, they go, “But it won’t look that good on me, it won’t change my appearance like that, I don’t need them.” We don’t meet the people to see our stuff, but I want to say it will dramatically change your life if you just do it.
This is amazing, and it looks great, and I couldn’t be happier that my dad sent me that link.
A Life Changing Makeover Worth Defending
For the last hour I’ve been around her, nobody’s not going to take this kid’s smile. She is going to smile at every person that she meets whether they like it or not. That little girl just wants to smile 24/7. Everybody she sees, I get the feeling that if she didn’t know you should hug you and that is not the little girl that started out today.
One thing about Stacy’s new smile is that it’s the first version of the BilVeneer that we’ve done. It’s the one that’s got the coating, it’s the one that’s thinned down, it’s the one that is designed exactly to fit. Basically it’s more gloss than any veneer we’ve ever made.
We were glad to be able to make it for her, but it took a lot of nerve for Stacy to trust me to make this veneer, and to make this video. One she didn’t know what she was getting into, and she had to take a leap of blind faith because she sent us in pictures and she wouldn’t have sent to anybody.
Embarrassment of A Bad Smile
Was it hard to submit pictures?
Oh yeah, it was the worst. I deleted them off my phone after I took them.
It’s been one, but you knew you needed it.
It helped us a lot, I promise you. It’s hard to consider them with out and she waited for an extreme amount of time for us to be able fit her in our schedule. And then she had to trust us to do everything from let’s not just make this smile, but let’s make a difference.
It’s About Who You Are When You Are Smiling
And it’s not about giving you a smile, it’s about changing who you are when you’re smiling. And we did it in 45 minutes today.
I hope that if you know someone who’s in the same situation, that you’ll use Stacy’s video to understand that there are choices in that not everything involves the cosmetic dentist. I couldn’t be more profoundly proud of what we do here and I think the results will speak for itself.

Her Removable Porcelain Veneers Smashed – Fight Crushes Her Dreams
When Kristy called us to tell us her boyfriend had broken her removable porcelain veneers in a fight, we knew it had to crush her dreams. We sprang into action so we could tell her story.
You know anything about the girl from Lubbock? It’s a pretty big deal for me. We built her a veneer. Has had it for, I guess a year, two years? Whatever.
Great job, got a promotion as a manager at a Denny’s. I think it was just that it worked, and then we get a call that says the long story was she was happy with it, got in a fight with her boyfriend. Boyfriend had smashed her removable porcelain veneers.
Yes, he didn’t want her to look good.
If somebody wants to beat up on their girlfriend that’s between them and the local authorities. That they were break my BLANK veneer yeah BLANK him.
You know what I’m saying? Like keep your hands off my BLANK.
Because that felt like I did it, you know? Like it was something we did so we thought we helped her.
But I’m not real crazy about your removable veneers or helping you feel like you’re somebody, then I’ll just…
…cause I don’t think she can do without them.
She said she wore them religiously and they had broken up, gotten in a fight, he didn’t wanted to look good, broke her smile, broke her teeth.
Well that’s a story that I want to fix.
Fixing Kristy’s Removable Porcelain Veneers
Today were heading out to Lubbock, and it’s a pretty special case for me. She actually bought from us a year ago, and she was one of the first clients that actually called me and said, “Hey, I want you to know that what you do may change my life.”
You know we always hope for the best, but this one means something to me. I hope it goes well, so stay with me and let’s see what’s going on.
My name is Kristy Poisal. I’m from Lubbock, Texas.
I’m here because I’ve always hated my teeth. Always had bad teeth since I was a kid.
I had them (Press On Veneers) and I love them. Took tons of pictures with them, and then they were destroyed (removable porcelain veneers).
Called the company and I left messages asking, you know, could you please? Don’t know if there’s any way to help me. Could you please? I need them back, and I was never going to be able to afford another pair. Luckily Bil reached out to me, and it’s why I’m here today.
Bad Smiles are a Social Welfare Issue
I think if I can say what we do is I would try to say we really try to make it where…Like who would you be if you didn’t have if you just had a regular smile? Where all smiles were covered, if everybody covered their smile?
We’d all be equal.
Everybody’d be equal in a room, and then they would laugh, and they would have a good time, and they’d have expressions, they’d have input, and there wouldn’t be one person over another, or let me back up, to let me hold my hand. So, if we have anything that can get them back to even. It’s about who they are when they’re smiling, not their smile.
A Smile Shouldn’t Have to be a Choice
The biggest thing that gets me mad is, you know, which is the reason why I’m in this business, is because I always felt like there should be a choice. Like if you wanted to get up today, I’m going to make those choices. You’re going to get on the phone, and they’re going to look at prices that are…
It’s just thousands and thousands of dollars. You know, like somebody calls you guys, like how can you do this? My doctor wants 20 grand! How can you do this? My doctor wants 15 grand!
Don’t know if I said I was going to get into this, and I won’t if I don’t want to, but when they told me that somebody broke them out of meanness…It just, you just can’t be from this part of the state of Texas and that not bother you. If you’re anybody…
I appreciate that.
You’re sharp, attractive, great makeup, great hair, great everything. Take care of yourself.
There’s just some things you can’t change.
Dentistry Won’t Fix This Issue
Like, yeah, it’s just…and the deal is, if dentistry was going to fix it, it’d be fixed already. Let’s go and get these on see what we can do? Boom! Let’s look at these.
You know what I love about your removable porcelain veneers? They cover all of your teeth. Like even my fillings, like to know I’m back from the days when they use silver fillings I have all of those and you can’t see them at all with these.
Kristy’s New Smile
Let me see, let’s hope. Whoa, let’s try one at a time right quick. How does it feel?
Actually feels way good, like a lot better than the first one.
They do look good.
Let me see what they look like. They look amazing. They look absolutely amazing.
Yeah it looks a lot smaller, and thinner. Yes, ok, let’s see what we’ve got. Let me see. You’ve got to get them adjusted, they take a few minutes.
Here you have to decide.
I love them. They look so real.
They look good amazing!
How do they compare the last ones?
I like them better actually.
How do they feel? Thinner? Do they feel…
They do, and they have a more realistic look.
You do know that they will seat a little bit more once you bite into them over a couple more days. Let me see you straight on right quick, big as you can. Trying to see if the bottom is doing what it needs to do. Bottom looks perfect.
You Can’t Take Her Removable Porcelain Veneers Away
I’m not giving these up! I Love them! You’re not taking them back!
They, um, they just look amazing. I’m trying to, I’m just…
It’s a huge difference, huh? A smile makes everything…
They just look amazing. Like I can’t, I’m sitting here two feet, and if someone thought they weren’t…They look like removable porcelain veneers. Just…
They do, actually. Like, and they look more porcelain than your last ones.
Yeah. I’m kind of in shock. Let me tell you why. you came with your makeup done, you came with your hair done. You look amazing, and the difference was is how much difference is it’s going to make with her smile?
Huge. they just blew it out. Like, I guess it’s because you have a tan, everything just pops.
Yeah, I decided to get a tan before y’all came to town. I was like I’m a little pasty, I work all the time, I sleep during the day. I’m gonna get a tan.
Her First Time To See These Removable Porcelain Veneers
They look amazing. I guess one thing I always tell people it’s we’ve never met before, and you’ve never tried these in. Like today was the first day…
Yes this is the first time.
I pulled them out of that sealed, you hadn’t tried them on earlier, you didn’t try them on this morning?
I didn’t show them to you yesterday, and you didn’t get them before we got here? The only thing you ever had were the ones you bought before, so they don’t think, “Oh, we get it now.”
But, I met you for an hour this one in or 40 minutes or something, and I was kind of wondering like how much is this going to be able to do for her? Like, how’s it going to stand out?
Like, you have no idea how much!
Then all the sudden it’s like, wow, I forget and uh, and I can’t imagine those working away from you.
Other Dental Options Weren’t Affordable
What I hate is is that if we didn’t show up today and you didn’t have the means or if you had to go to a dentist…
Which I’d never be able to afford.
I just don’t think it’s fair that other women in your choice, like you got one little girl? There’s people’s got three four kids or even two, and can’t afford it. Just, they’re never going to go, “Oh, doctor’s five thousand, here.”
I couldn’t keep putting money towards my teeth when I have formula to buy or before she…
Because you put it towards her first, cause you love your babies. But, it’s such a small cost for what it does.
Hey, I never regret spending that thousand dollars ever.
Not once. Like, I thought I might when I first sent it. I had that anxiety where I was like, “Oh my God, I just spent $1,000,” and I didn’t know if they were going to work. I didn’t have it to spend.
I mean you didn’t have it float?
And I didn’t. I had just enough of my tax money left to…and I had plans to save it for like a year, and pay bills if I needed to. And I just kept Google-ing it and Google-ing it. And I was just like, you know, I’m just going to do it now that my…
I’m sorry to interrupt but you just look so amazing from just ten minutes ago.
A Smile Changes A Person
I tell people that I just met if you had met me when I had my removable porcelain veneers you would think I was a totally different person, and they’re like why is that? I was actually fun because I smiled and I laughed.
Just so incredibly beautiful.
You’ve probably smiled 50 times in five minutes.
Yeah, I didn’t see you smile one time this morning.
I don’t smile without my teeth in.
It’s hard for me to have a conversation with you because I see how much differently it changed you…
I mean amazing beautiful.
This is what your company does.
You helped me so much.
A year and a half ago, we were faced at spending more money.
But now you see that it’s worth it right?
There’s Always A Few
Well listen, you do 20 of them and they would love them, and you’d do two and they’d call and bitch.
You’re always going to have that…
Those two would stick with you so bad, it’d be some little girl’s wedding. Or it would be something and you’d go, man, I don’t want to do this anymore.
I remember I was right there so you got people and they have their kids and their kids are getting bigger, and she spent a lot of time, and they’re working hard and all that you do. Everything, and you go man, I was going to quit and then one day this little girl shows up and she’s like, “Man, I just got a job at Denny’s.”
Removable Porcelain Veneers Helped With Her Job
I went from server to manager in less than a week after I got my removable porcelain veneers.
Man it was a big thing for me. The day they told me that, I didn’t relate the two. Like, they came in and said, “This guy went Rambo and wanted to break stuff (her removable porcelain veneers),” and I didn’t know it’s the same little girl who did the video for us.
I really didn’t know until we’d already made the decision to do it. Because Kenna was the one who did it. Then I didn’t know much about how they did it, or whatever, and when I found out it was you, I was “We have to do it.”
And I guess what I’d like to tell you is that it…God it’s hard talk about a lot of times we don’t know what you did and I’ll tell you you taking that video, it was just at the right time. That was just you telling the world, “Hey, don’t worry about it, you can do whatever you want with these.”
Her Removable Porcelain Veneers Changed Her Life
Guys, I don’t know if you saw it, but she just sent us her pictures and they look amazing. I want everyone to see those. We got finished with her today, and I’m telling you, this girl is absolutely amazing beautiful. It’s just kind of crazy how you can see someone one minute in the next minute. A smile really does change them.
One, I was so glad that the smile was very, very, very, very beautiful. But she’s all-around, fits her. I will tell you this little girl deserves to smile. Out of all the things that I’ve done, of all the places I’ve been, I’ve just never been more impressed with someone who was just more open minded about just let me be me, please let me be who I am.
Which is all we ever talk about every day. It’s not about your smile, in this situation her smile brought her out. Made her look really, really, really pretty and helped her a lot.
Lubbock Was Worth It
Let’s put it all together, it made it worth it. I’ll tell you Lubbock is a long ways and it’s not an easy day, but it was worth it. I think I would ride my bike out here, but I could not be more appreciative.
This is the kind of work I want to do more of and if you’re just watching this video weekly and you’re not subscribed, do me a favor. Freaking subscribe. It’s not that big a deal.
When I see three hours later she’s already on Facebook and I’m guessing she hadn’t been on a while, then it lets me know that their confidence changed. They’re taking new directions. They’re going to do some more stuff, and I’m just going to wrap it up here, so we’re going to try to get back to the office.
See you next week.

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

Watch the Fastest Smile Makeover Ever by Brighter Image Lab
This was the fastest smile makeover we have ever done. This client flew in and got her hair and makeup done. Meanwhile, we were hard at work creating a smile to match her new look. In the end, we gave her a smile she can be proud of.
The problem with my mouth has like completely consumed me. My little girl, my seven year old, I even keep her at a distance so that she’s not up close and personal.
Before they started to get real bad, we used to be like real silly and laugh and now like I just don’t do that with her anymore.
I don’t want her to say, you know, why do your teeth look this way?
Brighter Image Lab’s Fastest Smile Makeover Ever
Hey guys, today we’re doing the fastest smile makeover we’ve ever done. We’ve done some pretty quick before, but we’ve never been on a time crunch.
It’s 2:45 Dallas time. We have young lady we’re doing a smile makeover for. Very bad teeth, very embarrassed to smile. She signed up a couple months ago and when she signed up to become our client, we said, “Hey, listen, we’ll actually do a little bit of a makeover for you and see if these fit and get some pictures if you want to.”
And she said that would make her confidence go through the roof. So with that, we offered it and then we got delayed, or she got delayed, and then we got rescheduled, or she got rescheduled and so it goes on and goes on.
Well, now, today we got a phone call that says listen, I can make a flight standby and we’re gonna see if we can’t do it. We have four hours to get this thing done. You’re gonna see me meet her. I’ve never met her before and she’s never met me but this is the kind of vlog I like.
One, it’s interesting. Two, it should be pretty rewarding, and I’ve just never had one go this fast.
Bil Meets Holly
How are you doing?
Bil Watson how you doing?
Nice to meet you. You ready?
Let’s go. We’re on a time crunch, so we’re gonna make it. You nervous? How was your flight?
Long. It was a long way.
I’ve never flown before. It was nerve wracking.
We’re running for a big-time crunch, so we may have to interview a little bit in the truck.
If you don’t mind me asking, what do you do?
I am a manager at a restaurant.
Oh so you work your butt off
They always ask, like, “Y’all know each other?” We don’t know each other do we?
When You Have A Bad Smile, You Re-learn How To Smile
I’m guessing probably what you’ve done is just train yourself not to smile very much
Absolutely. I trained myself how to talk. I try not to show anything…
Nothing, just the bottom portion of your teeth?
That’s it. I don’t want people to get too close.
Can you tell me how long has it been? That’s what everyone’s gonna ask, “Well, how long’s her smile been bad?”
Over, probably over six years.
So it started around 18, or 16, or what year?
I mean little things and then…
Chipping, breaking, a bad…
…tooth in the back hurt, and next thing you know you can’t go get it drilled out and you just wait and you go, “Oh my god, why is my other one bad? Oh when will this stop?”
Desperate For Help With A Bad Smile
And I wrote to so many companies and like, dentists and contests and you were the only ones…
Who would respond?
From what I understand…
And that’s the truth, I went I mean every day. I would wake up and get on the internet and look for stuff…
But just some kind of help?
Everyone Needs A Good Smile
And everybody goes, “Oh it’s cosmetic.” Well having teeth that don’t embarrass you is like saying, “Oh, pants are accessories.” You know it’s like, “Really? I think everybody needs a pair of pants.”
I feel like you don’t really realize how important it is until don’t have it. Like you can’t do it.
Oh I didn’t realize that. Yeah you’re right. I’ve never heard it said that way. You’re right, like you know…
Once it’s taken away…
Once it’s gone it’s too late.
Dentists Should Be Offended
If I were a dentist I would be offended that some little girl in Erie Pennsylvania has to get on a plane, fly to Dallas to get help. Tooth Decay is the most preventable disease on the planet like on the whole world there’s nothing more preventable than tooth decay.
People just aren’t educated they don’t know how it starts and so they don’t know how to stop it. And like, I think in your situation you told me if you can make it look better then I don’t care because I’m not in pain, I just need to look better.
New Smiles Should Be Affordable
And with that, that’s kind of what you gave us a footing. But in your situation, you’re a worker, you’re a hustler, you weren’t asking for anything. You just didn’t know of anything that you could actually, pay off.
And you said, “Listen, I’m gonna take any action I could get.” And they don’t know it on YouTube but would have done anything. You’re like, “Listen, I’m a worker I don’t care my daughter’s not going to get raised with a mother who doesn’t smile.”
And so I said if she’s a fighter I’ll be a fighter with her. I’m not going to let her fight by herself. And that’s why we picked it.
The Fastest Smile Makeover Ever Begins
Now let me tell what we’re gonna do here. This little place should take about 40 minutes. It’s a little place called Drybar, they don’t do anything but styling.
But they’re real cool at making people feel brand new.
You look amazing!
Looks cool. We got a little girl waiting to do some makeup on you, so it’s new.
I don’t know anything about that stuff. I hope you know the reason why I do that is I want them to go home feeling different. Not better, because everybody can do better. Everybody can do better. You go, “Oh, I could have worn a collar. Oh, I could have wore my stuff.”
I want them to feel different, and different means the world to me. I understand that they’re not the same.
Right. I’m starting to calm down a little bit more. I was nervous, yeah.
Your Smile Affects Everything In Your Life
My smile has affected my life in every in every way of my life. It’s kept me from my friends. I’m always wondering if people are judging me. My little girl, my seven-year-old, I even keep her at a distance so that she’s not up close and personal. Because if I do smile, I got my hand up or my head down.
Finishing the Fastest Smile Makeover Ever
Holly this is fastest smile makeover we’ve ever done. You look amazing. I’m glad we stopped. We didn’t do color, we didn’t do cut. We just styled your hair, did a little makeup.
Threw you in a t-shirt, and we’re trying to get you back to the airport.
You got some travels to do but when you get home I think you’re gonna have the still enough freshness about you because everything’s brand new.
I feel beautiful right now.
You’re gonna go, “Wow, I can’t wait to get in front of people!” I always tell people it’s not about your smile it’s about if they were smiling who would they be if something wasn’t holding them back? And I’m hoping you do that.
So without further ado, I won’t even put on gloves cause we’re in a hurry. I’m going to actually ask you to put these in. Ready?
Holly Gets Her Fastest Smile Makeover
All right you start with this and…They have a cover. And you start with the top and then we’ll try the bottom. It looks amazing. You see it?
Can you see it?
See how much more that color is going to do for you?
Let’s go ahead and try the bottoms. We’re going to take that one out for a second.
Yeah, it’s messy.
Try the bottom one, see what it does. Let’s see how the bottom fits. Oh my God, that looks good!
What I want you to do is just try these on again, this time press them up and hold it for a few minutes. It looks so good, it’s unbelievable. What’ll happen is, you have a bite that’s so tight at the bottom that you have to seat these. I can tell you they look amazing.
Oh my gosh! They look really pretty!
They look great.
A Makeover Isn’t Complete Without The Smile
You’ve done your diet, you’ve got your energy, you’ve got clothes, you got makeup and you’ve got something that’s holding you back and it’s been so punishing to you that I’m under the opinion that you probably have 1/10 of the pictures you’re going to have with your little girl.
That’s like one of the first things I wanted to do was take a selfie.
Selfies Need To Wait For The Smile
Second thing you’re gonna do is take selfies. First thing you’re going to do is just learn to smile. I’m telling you you don’t know how, cause you’re scared to. You’re going to learn how to do it. What’s the number that you would do if you had it to do over again?
Not wait so long.
You wouldn’t have waited? How old is your little girl? Seven? And this is six years, so she’s six years of seeing her mom not smile?
You aren’t going to let that happen again?
Whispered: I don’t think so either.
It’s Not Fair To Withhold A Smile
Yeah it’s not fair, it’s not fair. Not fair to her, not fair to you.
How is this going to affect you with work?
I’m going to be more comfortable with my guests.
Just more you, right?
Smile, yeah, relax more, not be so serious.
Okay, that’s worth the whole trip wasn’t it?
We we got a little behind, but if we didn’t do it it wasn’t gonna be done.
A Great Impression Isn’t Difficult To Make
There’s dentists out there that’ll stay stay away from the internet because the impression is impossible. Were you scared of the impression? Was it too hard?
So you just did it and sent them in?
I did it, yeah.
We got it done. And so t-shirt and stuff is all extra, you really came to get a smile?
I think we did it. We did what we said we were going to do.
He’s gonna take some pictures we’re gonna take one together and we’re gonna bolt all right? Ok! Boom, let’s do it!
…and being able to take like a selfie with my seven-year-old would be awesome!
