I knew she was wrong. I just knew it.
Now, I'm at an age where my smile just doesn't send the professional image I would like. Between you (the entire internet world!) and me, I don't have the most attractive front teeth. I had my teeth fixed in the 3rd grade after a little accident, (Face, meet Road) and now, 20-something years later, the composite build ups are chipped and showing their age, with a noticeable horizontal line separating real tooth from fake. Oh, and as if this weren't all bad enough, the 2 teeth are different sizes with a gap between them! When I told my boss, a pediatric dentist, that I was thinking of getting a consultation for cosmetically restoring my front teeth, she was delighted.
Well, she's going to have to wait. My exam was yesterday and, although I should be a fairly simple case, we're not quite there yet. Guess what, Teenage Me?
I get to wear braces!
