My name is Melina and I'm 33 years old and currently unemployed. I've had crooked teeth my whole life. When I was a kid, I went to an orthodontist who said that if I extract 4 teeth then there was a chance that they will be straight and so I did. Unfortunately, that made things worse and my teeth became even more crooked. Since then, I went twice to get an opinion from orthodontists, but all said I had to extract 2 teeth to get braces. Apart from not wanting to extract teeth, I don't have the money. I live in Greece and all dental expences are not covered by your insurance.
I recently found a doctor that uses a modern technique without extractions and I would really want to try it.
I am not a person who asks for money. For anything, really. But growing up was super hard from me trying to hide my teeth all the time. I am so insecure about my smile. I never smile or laugh and when I do, I cover my mouth. I don't ever smile on photos and I should't have to live like this. I should feel pretty and happy.
It's really hard for me to open up about this on the internet, but I would really want your help to raise 3000€ so that I can pay for my therapy.
Thank you so much for listening to my story. I hope you can help me feel confident and happy. Any euro counts.Thanks so much in advance!
