Mother’s Day Smile Makeover Contest
By: Lillian DeMarco
My Mammas, Leslie DeMarco, and I are very close. We always have been. I am an only child, so since I don’t have any brothers or sisters at home, I have my parents. But, because of their separation five years ago, I’m either only with my mom or only with my dad. That calls for a lot of time together.
I love spending time with my mom, even to this day. She is caring, funny, has a big heart, and is consistently there for me. She comforts me when I cry, laughs with me at our many jokes, tries to make my life the best it can be, and helps me with my problems.
Now that I’m getting older, and it’s been evident that my parents are never getting back together, I understand that companions are a necessary part to have a fulfilling life. Even though my mom says she doesn’t need a companion, I feel that it would be good for her to have a male friend other than her girlfriends to at least hang out with.
The main thing here is that I just want my mom to be happy. And for her to be ultimately happy, part of that is having good teeth. She tells me that she got teased in high school for her uneven teeth; her two front teeth and the teeth on the whole left side of her mouth are all pushed in, making the teeth on the right side of her mouth look way more forward than they actually are. And her bottom teeth are even worse: they chip constantly. She isn’t even able to eat pretzels much because her teeth could chip from them!
While her teeth aren’t stopping her from getting out there, meeting new people, and having fun, they definitely put a damper on her self-image. She wishes that there was an opportunity out there for her to have good teeth, financially or otherwise. And since my mom doesn’t have a wad of cash just sitting around waiting to be used on improving her self-image and life, she has to just deal with what she has for now and wait for her chance to get what she wants. And, you guessed it, this is her opportunity to have good teeth and a happier life!
Having straight teeth, that will hopefully be obtained from your most prestigious orthodontic care, would quite literally change her life and face.
To be happy is the main goal in life, right? So make her happier. Make me happier. You’ve done a great job on my teeth, and I am confident that you’ll do a great job on my mom’s as well. We all know how much this would benefit her; and in doing so, it would benefit me as well. Thank you.
