So, here we go.
I wouldn't normally do anything like this, but letely I've seen a fair few sucess stories and thought it was worth giving it a shot.
I am a 25 year old female and my problem lies with my teeth. I have had this issue for the whole of my adult life and it effects me every single day. My teeth are very ugly to look at. I am embarrassed to smile, laugh and even to talk. I'm always self concious about it, even infront of the people that have known me all my life. I'm not looking for a hollywood smile, just straight teeth that don't look like a mess.
Recently my partner of 5 years has proposed to me, however, I won't get married as I don't want to spoil the wedding photos, I want to be able to smile and feel happy and confident! not ugly, self concious and worried that people might take photos from a dodgy angle.
So, long story short. Me and my partner both work full time and pay all of our bills! for 3 years I have been trying to save money for braces. Each time I save, something manages to come along that requires me to spend my savings. I don't want to be stuck like this for the rest of my life, I don't want to hate watching television because I feel jealous of people with normal teeth, I don't want to be the miserable one that never smiles in any of the photos, I just want to be happy.
The braces cost £3000 of which I need to try and get together, I am hopefull that some lovely people may be able to help me. For some people this is loose change, to me this is life changing
