Smile Daily Sketch


SMILE was a word suggestion today on Twitter. It made me think of a time when I was in elementary school and wanted something more than anything other thing on the planet. Braces.

For some odd reason It thought having metal on your teeth was so cool. Not just a little, but like super fresh. I would bend paper clips and put them in my mouth like I had braces. I talked about the day I would get mine. I know, it's pretty weird. This obsession didn't last long and soon I would move on to cooler things like biker shorts, Bart shirts an and eventually wondering if I could pull off a Humpty Hump nose and glasses. And yes, I did attach a plastic nose to a pair of sunglasses.

This photo is reminder to everyone that we should always smile because it attracts all the positive things we could get in life. However, it reminds me that I have to have dental implants in North Hollywood soon to have a perfect smile too.

To avoid putting metals on your teeth, its best that as early as now visit an emergency dentist new york to prevent future problems with your teeth.

Yeah, that's why most of us, people, believe in even my rogers ar dentist could attest to that. We think that braces could really improve our overall appearance, I even molded some aluminum foil to my teethe to make it look like braces.

Now is their time to face the fact that dental health should be part of their hygiene. My boca raton cosmetic dentist told me that it should be a priority.

Do the paper clips hurt your gums every time you do it? I never thought of it as a cool teeth accessory because I always see different types of it in the dental laboratory of my mom.

I have this braces before when I was still in school. I had to wear those braces to correct the alignment of my teeth.

I remember when braces once became a trend in Manila, that even those who don't need teeth alignment correction, wear braces! My brother has braces for two years now, and the dentists are gonna take them off this month. I'm sure that after those braces, he'll soon be spending money on dental supplies for maintenance!

I used to hate my braces because they're the center of attention during my video conferences with my friends. I mean, why can't they just focus on my face, right? But now that my dentist took 'em off, I kinda missed having them. | Keira |

I thought it was cool as well. I remember when I was preparing for my debut; I really want my dentist to remove my braces because it doesn’t look cool for me anymore. My mouth looks wide and my lips looks like it was stung by a bee.

When I was in elementary, I was so excited to have braces on my teeth. After a month of having them, I gave up! Every time the dentist adjusts the rubber, I suffer a few days of painful eating, and the food gets stuck easily. But now that they're off, I kinda missed the feeling of having them. My teeth are 'perfect' now. Totally worth it! - Sophia Houghton
