I've always been someone who was proud to smile and received a lot of comments on my smile all my life.
My life got flipped around in 2008 when my roommate of 4 years passed away. I walked around in a constant state of depression and gave up on myself. After a while, I quit taking care of myself, which included taking care of my teeth. I sadly got into drugs and alcohol for a short period of time and cared even less for myself.
By the time I decided to start taking care of myself again my teeth had gone from being nice, good looking, white teeth to broken, yellow and ugly. I was embarrassed to smile, but when I did smile I wouldn't smile normally because I wanted to hide my teeth as much as I could. I was embarrassed by how my teeth looked. I wasn't comfortable smiling anymore, I wasn't comfortable with myself.
I started taking care of myself recently and one of the things in the top of my list was taking care of my teeth. Getting my teeth back in good shape and caring for them the right way is now a priority for me. I haven't stopped smiling big since the day I got my teeth fixed. I feel comfortable again with how my teeth look, which has boosted my confidence in myself greatly. It is amazing the change you feel when you know you have a great smile.
I couldn't be happier with my smile today and can't thank the people that made it happen enough. It really is a blessing to have my smile back and have more confidence smiling then I have ever had.
Thank you for all the work you all did to give me an amazing smile!
