Buy A Smile

Much as we eat healthy and exercise everyday just to be on top of our game, there are other little things that we must pay attention to, such as our eyes, ears, teeth. Sounds minor, but are huge in importance. Truth is, am not the health guru, I just learn from interacting with my older co-teachers. Our music teacher in school, turned 71 last January. If you see her, she'd still pass for 50-ish, no kidding! She's so youthful! I love to hang out with her because she's so much fun and she oozes with positive outlook. She contaminates me with her enthusiasm.

For her 71st birthday, she told me, she gave herself the gift of a beautiful smile, and I mean literally, a smile. She was talking about how her teeth got so worn out from years of use. I was laughing at first, but she was serious. It got to the point where her teeth got worn out it was already chipping off at the edges, and the color was awful.  It was already distracting the people she is talking to. She can see them glancing at her discolored teeth. So for her 71st birthday, she got herself  dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thick layer of material placed over a tooth surface to either improve the look of the tooth, and/or protect the damaged tooth surface. Veneers are important tool for cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are so flexible, it can be use for one tooth that has been damaged or discolored, or multiple teeth to create a brighter beautiful smile. For my good friend, our music teacher, the grade of her eye-glasses are not the only thing she upgrades, she also upgrades her smile.
