I am a full time worker, 49, and mother of four in kansas.
I have had recent problems over the last five years with my teeth. Two molars one on each side on my uppers were pulled which made all my teeth spread, so I now have a big space between my two front teeth.
A cracked bicuspid that fell apart after several hundred dollars of repair plus the spaces have made my smile be something that I try to hide. Hand in front of my mouth when I laugh, or turn my head.
The dentist here wants $17,000.00 u.s. dollars for his plan for my teeth. He pulled out my four bottom teeth which I knew no problem with. So I now have a "flipper" or partial denture on the bottom. And all of that was done while my husband had insurance. Still paid 3,000 from my pocket and cannot smile at people.
I am divorced now and cannot face the thought of life without smiling and looking in the eyes of people for the duration of my life. I must have some reconstruction done at a reasonable cost.
I enjoy talking and smiling to all people, anywhere and I prefer to not hide my smile with my hand. I am willing to pay decent money for decent work but will not pay a whole year's salary for a few days work.
I am happy to go to Mexico and receive quality care at a reasonable price. And bring some friends too!! If I can get a vacation and my smile without shame I will be happy for years to come.
