Unfortunately I have not been able to smile for many years because my teeth are so crooked/over-crowded that it looks really horrible. I struggle financially and can't have them straightened and I'm already 38 years old. I feel so unhappy as this is putting such a big strain on my life as I don't want to socialise because I will have to smile. They truly look ugly and so my confidence is very low. I had a free consultation with an orhodontist and he told me that he will have to remove at least 2 teeth, then correct my arch (which will take about 1 year, and then straighten the teeth (that's another year or two). The total cost is £3000 and I simply can't afford this, not even if it's paid in instalments. I am now trying this fund-raising as a last chance to get this done because without help it would just be impossible. I would be extremely happy for any donation to make my wish come true and have straight teeth so that I can smile and have confidence to meet people. I will put regular updates here to show how the treatment goes and what it looks like during the process. Please find it in your heart to help me as it will make such a big difference to my life!
