@Laurentoni what a positive transformation... They really suit you and hopefully seeing yourself smiling back at you in the mirror will be the best reward after they're fit at the final stages.

@Laurentoni Thank you so much for answering! I’m already going through withdrawal from biting my bottom lip since right now I can’t use my front teeth as they’re part of what needs to come out :toofunny: I can’t wait till I can do that again LOL

I’m planning on being put out myself (my dentist suggested it’d be best since I’m my anxiety is just that severe. Getting extractions while awake might be a run before you can walk scenario) so I’m glad to hear it went well for you! And thank you for being honest about how tough it can be. I’ve been trying to mentally prepare for that, and I’m definitely reminding myself of the beautiful smile I’ll get at the end of it.

You look absolutely stunning in your before/after photos! I’m so happy you got your smile back, that’s fantastic! :love:

@Mary64 the unknown is very scary but i promise it will all be worth it in a few months from now when things have settled down and you can smile with such confidence.

Baby steps is the way forward and dont put too much pressure on yourself to quickly.

Best of luck x
