Like David Letterman, no more!

     I love David Letterman. He is a quirky, eccentric, goofball. Sometimes I feel like we have a lot in common.
     However, one of our major physical characteristics in common (definitely not the hair department) changed drastically. I had my teeth worked on.
     I am SUPER happy about the end result. I just can't believe I waited this long to have it happen. Why? Why did I not do this so long ago?
     The really great thing is Dr. Greg Grillo is all about making beautiful smiles with the least invasive (and consequently, least expensive) way as possible. I am all about that!
     I could not stop smiling yesterday afternoon, and I imagine people who watched me drive by thought I was a WEIRDO!
     And, thankfully I was not in a lot of pain. My gums were a little sore later in the evening, but that's to be expected.
     I really am in shock at how something that took such a short while (I watched March of the Penguins during the procedure) can make such a big difference.
     OK, so to the pics. The top one is my teeth after the procedure. The middle one is my teeth before the procedure but I did have them whitened. The lower pic is before whitening and the procedure! Incredible difference, huh?!!
     I am really proud of myself for making the choice this summer to start changing things that I wanted to change in my life, and fixing my teeth was one thing on my list.
     I feel really lucky to have found such a great dentist in our area. I have a confession to make...I had not been to the dentist since I was pregnant with Jordie (and, he is 15).
     I think it matters greatly when you find a dentist that you like and trust. In addition to that, the entire experience and atmosphere is important, too. I love Dr. G's assistant, Sher, and it helps that she is a friend :)
     I used to joke around about how David Letterman and I had our front gaps in common...NOT ANYMORE!!!!!

I had the same procedure done about 6 years ago, and I am still so very happy that I had it done! It really gives a boost to your self confidence, doesn't it?! Your teeth look incredible and so does your smile! :)
