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