Thirty Days of Blog, Day One

Something I hate about myself.

 

number-1-signMy teeth.

Plain and simple.

I love to smile and laugh, and when I really smile I show ALL my teeth and my eyes scrunch up and my nose wrinkles making the tip go pink… and I hate my teeth.

Years of smoking, too much coffee, and various cortisone asthma inhaler treatments* have made them yellow and brittle and unbelievably sensitive.

I have attempted to whiten them, but two weeks of a whitening toothpaste means they’re too sensitive to even breathe! And fixing them at the dentist means whitening treatments (which makes them more sensitive), veneers or crowns. Veneers and crowns are hellishingly expensive, and I simply can’t afford such a luxury… not to mention my completely irrational fear of the dentist!!

I’m doing a 30 Days Of Blog Challenge

 

*why don’t the doctors tell you to rinse your mouth after using a cortisone asthma inhaler because it can damage your teeth!!??!

  1. I also hate my teeth. They’re skew and now have white marks on them and cost me loads of money just for fillings, nevermind treatments. FYI, my dentist told me that you should rinse your mouth after eating and drinking coffee/tea to prevent staining.

    Sensodine make a whitening toothpaste now and you get special brush heads for the Oral B Vitality electric toothbrushes with a “polishing cup” that the dentists use to polish your teeth in the centre. Maybe try those two together and see what happens?

  2. I hate my teeth as well. For my problem there is a solution but it’s something I just don’t want to do. Getting braces. Nope, not in a million years, so I will endure this till the day I day. My for-teeth standing out 🙂
    Why don’t doctors tell you? Because it’s not important to them.

  3. I hate my teeth because I still have my first tooth. I swear, when my folks die and I get rich (hahahahahaha) I’m having veneers put in. My day will come!

  4. Me too! Me too! Me too! Mine are reasonably white (and by that I mean milky yellow.) BUT! They are so weak and brittle and crumbly. I stress about EVERYTHING I eat because if you just look at them funny they break. Have already had one molar extracted (am THIRTY FIVE – NOT 75) and the one next to the extracted one has just crumbled away! Devastating!! I also need crown, caps or veneers – whatever – they are all beyond my non-existent budget!!

    I feel your pain!!
