I’m gonna share something very intimate about me today. You are going to see a very private part of me paraded in various poses and contortions. MY MOUTH LA!! Teeheehee.
For the longest time, I was unsatisfied with my smile. I knew what I didn’t like, but didn’t know how to fix them, or if fixing them was even possible.
6 things I didn’t like about my (old) smile:
1. Misaligned teeth
I had braces when I was 18, those super ugly metal ones that no matter how colorful and luminous I chose my bands to be, remained UGLY.
Not to mention painful and uncomfortable! Ulcers were a constant thing throughout the agonizing 3.5 years that I wore them. I remember having to wear these tiny elastics to improve the bite of my upper and lower jaws. There were bands, hooks, wires, brackets in my mouth and I always had food stuck in between and everywhere else.
Ah, the price to be paid for not having naturally straight teeth! Mine were all over the place, some hiding behind one another, some growing like cactuses reaching out for the sun. Lol.
During the period when I was wearing braces, I don’t think I had that many suitors. WAHAHA.
My teeth were pretty straight after that but one day my retainers disappeared. I asked my dentist if I should make new ones and he said “Nah, it’s alright. Some natural crookedness will make your teeth look nicer”. Whuuutt…?? WORST ADVICE EVER. =.=
2. Yellow Teeth
I don’t smoke, I don’t take coffee or tea, not even coke. I just had yellow teeth. =(
