    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 -

    I know what you mean about 'yellow' teeth. I, too was in the group that received the 'miracle' drug tetracycline prior to 'adult' teeth..... Great smile!

    They look wonderful! I totally understand how you fell as I had an overlaping front tooth. At 55 I got braces for two years and then had all the front 4 capped. Makes you feel so much better. Now I need to whiten the bottom. Love your smile!

    You have a georgious smile!

    My DH has teeth like you explained from tetracycline. His parents never bothered to get them fixed eventhough they could afford it. When he smiles he doesn't show his teeth.

    Good for you. Your smile is beautiful. I like nice teeth and I don't care how much it cost.
    There is a young lady, well not so young, but younger than I, in my Bible Study class and she only has one tooth in her whole mouth. It is right in the front. I don't know anything about her or her life. I just feel sorry that she never had her teeth taken care of. I'm sure she can't afford it. I can't imagine her going through life like that if she could afford it.
