Hi, my name is clover. I came across your.contest on google.††I felt like I should tell you a little about my self, I am 25, I have 3 awesome kids, and I have ugly teeth! When I was ten or so I had a bike reck and my two front teeth were knocked out. We did save them and the dentist was able to put them back in. That was fine but as I got older I wanted braces due to crazy teeth and a big front gap, I was told my two front teeth were not strong enough so they would have to be pulled. I was 16 at this time , I was working and paying for my braces with some help from my mom we got a fliper ( not sure if that's what it's called) it had two front teeth on it and came I. And out. I got use to it but always felt like people could tell. After I got my braces of it seems as though my teeth got worse I am missing a total of 5 teeth, I don't have a job with insurance and couldn't afford anything els but to get them pulled. I have more teeth that hurt and need work, I don't want to have them pulled, I want to laugh and smile with my kids and friends and not think everyone is looking at how bad my teeth are, I am hoping I win, it would mean the world to me. I have a long life ahead I would love a great smile.†††††††††Clover cleveland

In so many ways
We are alike
I guess that's why
We sometimes fight

But laugh together
We more often do
There is much between us
And the fights are few

So let us remember
The laughs we have
And watch our tounges
So we don't get mad

Please help me fix my smile. I don't want to run off to Mexico like Buckteeth hillbilly did and I cant stand the thought of going to funeral homes til I find a pair that fits. My uncle did that and I just want my mouth to quit hurting and to smile with my lips parted

Hi, I would like a smile makeover to help me with my bite, speech and so I can eat properly. My gums hurt, and my jaw bite needs correcting.

I am 38 years of age, for the last 4 years I havent socialised or been in a relationship - because of of my teeth. I would like to have children one day - but I am not sure if this will be possible.

Thank you for this opportunity.

I just went to see an Orthodontist the other day for a free consultation. I wanted to see how much work my smile needed and how much money this would cost. I need braces and surgery! I have a cross bite and Under bite and it cost too much for me! I hate smiling, everytime I talk I bite my tongue, I'm a single mother of two girls who can't afford the braces part. Its $6,200 for the full amount of braces. I'm on medicaid and they don't cover adult orthodontic care! My condition gets worse as I get older. I need help!! I want to feel normal!

Thank you for the chance to receive a new smile . I am 40 years old with 3 kids ,two in college 1 in middle school I can't afford to get any cosmetic work done . It's so expensive . I have very soft teeth ,they break even if there is no cavity ,my teeth meet together . I have no back teeth and missing in front I can't eat certain food , and have pain if there is a tooth fairy that gives teeth instead of taking them away I would appriciate it lol . Again I thank u for the opportunity

I am 51 yrs. old. I became a widow 6 years ago when my husband committed suicide. I was left with three sons to finish raising. Since his death, I have not taken care of myself. My focus has been solely on raising my sons, working two jobs and keeping our heads above water financially. It's difficult to start over when I am so ashamed of my smile. I am very self-conscious and have not even considered dating during this past 6 yrs. I had to have several teeth pulled so the remainder of my teeth have shifted over time. I also have a partial that is coming loose and I am scared to death that it's about to fall out. What the heck am I going to do if that happens. I cannot afford the dental care I need and without it, I can't move forward with my life the way I should. People have always said they thought I was pretty. I don't see it. All I see is my teeth that have drastically changed over the past few years. I really need a new start in life and hope that you can somehow help. There are many deserving people out there...I am simply one of many. God bless.

I am 31 I have 4 children and just spent the last year and a half being homeless.my family and I just recently got a place and have had to rebuild from square one because we lost everything we owned in a fire! This was just 6 months after having my daughter so had not had the chance to look for or go to work. During this time my teeth had started to get real bad and were breaking left and right I saw a dentist and because I have mass health I haad no other option but to either pull them out or deal with the pain and infections I was getting all the time. So I had them removed! Most of all the back teeth are now gone so because I'm using the front teeth to bite and chew those have all started to break and crumble. I went back to the dentist and he said my only option now is to remove all my teeth. I instantly cryed... I have always had perfect teeth they were so white and so straight people used to compliment me on them all the time! I have issues with severe depression and extreamly low self esteem that having this issue is killing me! Today 1/13/14 I went to a diffret dentist because I heard as of 2014 mass health was going to start fixing adult teeth and this dentists just looked at top teeth x rayed those and gave me a write up of the price to fix just the top teeth 26,000 dollars! I currently have no income so that will never happen I need help!!!!!!! I'm in the process of trying to start my own non profit organization to help family's placed by welfare in hotel shelters. I lived in one for the last 7 months. I'm currently writing a book and would like to start a YouTube channel on it to to try to get someone out there to hear these issues and try to make changes so these family can succeed! But I can't smile! Its really bad embarrassing I hate it and the pain I get from my mouth is enough to drive the sainest man crazy! Then to listen to kids yelling hurts like crazy!!!! I'm begging you to consider me in the new smile make over so I can go forward in helping get the word out on the shelter situation without being embarresed or feeling like because of my teeth they are not taking me seriously........ Thank you

Hi Candi, this thread is years old, I'm afraid this contest must be long over. The price you were quoted must be for implants with fixed bridge that doesn't come out, is that correct?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
