I’m Anne, a 21 yr old theatre arts student from the Philippines. My teeth has always been my insecurity because of how crooked they are, especially my lower set. Last May, I decided to get braces. It was all good until August and September came and I didn’t have an appointment with my orthodontist because she wasn’t always available. I didn’t get my braces adjusted for two months, which is a long time. Recently, September 24, I went to another clinic, a good and known one here in the Philippines to consult about my teeth. I also asked them about Invisalign which are invisible and removable aligners. That same day, I had my braces removed for three reasons. 1.) Braces are hard to maintain and are unhygienic because they’re not removable. They were hard to clean. 2.) I missed how I looked without braces. Ever since I got braces, I always smiled with my mouth closed. 3.) I couldn’t go to auditions for plays and musicals because I had braces on.
I plan on getting Invisalign if I raise enough money so I can still get that perfect smile. I just want to be able to get that perfect set of teeth without compromising my hygiene and confidence.
I’ll be thankful for your donation whether it’s big or small. I just really need all the help I can get to be able to afford my dream orthodontic treatment.
