    I once had bad teeth.

    Now I have NO teeth! As you suggest you have dental issues, solve them once & for all, have them extracted. I can only tell you that over the last years of being edentulist, it has been the happiest time of my life!

    So this is embarrassing to admit,

    but my teeth are in poor shape because I didn’t take care of them for years. I haven’t had dental insurance for 8 years and when I went back recently, I found out my gums have receded (or the enamel just wore away – not sure which) on 2 bottom teeth, I need to get 6...

    My teeth aren't bad at all in terms of being

    straight. I had braces for two years and that fixed how crooked they were. They're really stained now from all the damage I've done to them by vomiting so much. I don't like smiling with my teeth. I always cover my mouth when I laugh. I'm so lucky I don't suffer from bad breath...
