My insecurities started back in sixth or seventh grade. I wasn’t happy about how my teeth looked – one sat on top of the other, so it looked like I had fangs, and the teeth weren’t straight at all.
I’m usually a very happy and outgoing person, but I tried to hide my smile because of my teeth. It destroyed my self-esteem and made me worry constantly.
When you can’t smile, even if you feel like it, you feel like a part of you is missing.
When I turned 18 and had the money for it, I thought it was time to fix it. I figured there was no reason to put it off any longer when it was something I could fix.
I did some research and discovered an advertisement for clear aligners – and I knew immediately that they were the answer I was looking for.
My mother was the first to notice my transformation – a transformation, not only in my smile, but in my self-confidence.
The treatment genuinely changed my life. I now feel complete as a person. All the joy that I feel inside, I can finally express through my new smile.
