    I don't know if seeing me smile on my avatar creeps anyone out but it is my "new smile" that I am thrilled about. I had my permanent teeth come in when I was 8 years old, dark from tetracycline medication taken long term. Anyway, I am 55 years old now, and went in and had porcelean veneers put on my top front 6 teeth. I cried all the way home because it is the first time in my life I have had white teeth. When I say dark, they were really brown all my life. I sat a total of 4.5 hours in the dentist chair but wouldn't change it for the world. Anyway, to make a long story short, never stop your dreams from happening no matter how long it takes.

    !! Your smile is beautiful !! I'd be smiling too - that is a long time to sit in a dentist chair - but the results are wonderful. I'm happy for you!

    If anyone can imagine going through childhood with ugly teeth, it was horrible, and later I just didn't really care what people thought, but now, I wish I would have bit the bullet and had them done when I was younger, maybe I wouldn't have felt so bad. People with white teeth have been my envy for my entire life.

    Me, too.

    White, even teeth that match, top and bottom.

    I am so happy for you that you were able to get yours the way you want them. Your smile is lovely.

    Appearances do matter -
