Hi. First I want to apologize if I offend anyone with my request as there are so many people that need help. I am a survivor. I survived being molested abused and raped as a child. I have survived without a father because he died of cancer before my birth. I have survived loosing a child a day before her first birthday due to complications with the disease hemophilia. I have survived an abusive boyfriend. And I never lost my smile through most of this. I love people still and believe everyone has good in them. At the time my daughter died I had gotten in a car wreck and although I wasn't driving and was the only one wearing a seatbelt the accident left my teeth messed up. The abusive boyfriend was drunk and fighting with me and crashed, I was 24 the dentist told me several front teeth would have to be removed and that's the last time I saw a dentist and since then have developed a great fear of going but recently my 11 year relationship with my fiancee ended and one of the things he told me was that my teeth are a turn off. I haven't smiled in a pi tire in years as I am 40 now. I rarely leave my house so that I can't have to talk to people. My children always say when they get rich they will fix my teeth so I can smile again....I have written Dr. Phil and Ellen but no response I don't even really need the money if there is a dentist out there willing to permanently fix my teeth. I don't want dentures I just want to smile and know that my smile isn't going anywhere. Before the accident people complemented my smile all the time and I would always respond with "eew I hate my smile" God taught me a lesson cause all I want is that smile back. I asked for the amount I did because I don't know how much permanents would cost but I heard it was expensive and I tried to find out but they all want you to go to a consultation and I don't have the money to even consider a consultation . I have been through a lot and I know it's all for a good reason. But I would love to live the remainder of my life now that I'm finally safe and stable knowing that I can smile again. I want my self esteem back and a smile is important. Please if you are or know any dentists willing to sacrifice and help me please let me know. I would rather not show mybteeth but will if I have to. Since the accident they have gotten worse a lot more teeth have to go now I k of and feel it so it won't be cheap. Sorry again to bug you with this but I just want to smile again now that I actually have things to smile about. And I want to be able to talk to people I don't make new friends ...I'd rather not open my mouth.
