***Disclosure: I received complimentary samples to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% honest and have not been influenced in any way.***
I have to admit, I didn't always have the nicest smile. In fact, it was awful. You see, I spent many years without access to dental care. I also suffered through an abusive relationship which completely and utterly destroyed my self-esteem....I was told every single day how ugly and inferior I was. I was told I'd never be good enough, and that I should be disgusted by my own reflection. I was told that no one could ever love me, and that if people were nice to me, it was merely out of pity.
This treatment unfortunately led to a battle with Bulimia that ultimately made me sick all the time and completely destroyed my teeth. I was isolated, out of shame, for close to 20 years. I was terrified to open my mouth to speak to new people. I was scared of judgement and ridicule, and I couldn't stand my own reflection. I avoided leaving my house, and when I had to, my main goal was to remain as invisible as possible.
Thankfully, a miracle happened, and a very kind man who I'll always consider my hero changed my life forever by giving me a smile makeover. For the first time in my whole entire life, I am not ashamed to smile.
Did you know that poor dental health can impact your overall health, and can even cause some very serious problems such as heart problems or even strokes? It's true! I know my health suffered when my dental issues were present, and I felt sick, tired, and was in excruciating pain every single day of my life.
I've made it a point to take very good care of myself, and have made a ton of lifestyle changes. The way I see it, having beaten Bulimia and being blessed with a brand new smile, I owe it to myself to be as healthy as possible.
I quit smoking after being a smoker for most of my life. I stopped drinking pop in exchange for sparkling water. I sleep more. I use sunscreen. I try and stay active. When my dental health improved, my confidence improved. In fact, my entire life changed for the better and I have never had a healthier lifestyle than I do today.
I make sure to take good care of my smile these days. I brush 3 times a day, use mouthwash, and I make sure to floss religiously as well. I know that taking care of my smile is essential to my overall well-being, and I take that very seriously. As someone who has suffered immensely as a result of dental issues, I know all too well the importance of proper oral care. I baby my mouth now, not only to protect my smile, but to protect my health, too.
