Teeth, my friends, say a whole lot about you. If you have bad teeth, people assume you were poor and couldn't afford braces and the countless visits to the dentist. And you all know naman that I grew up poor. We only went to the dentist when we had a toothache and talagang kailangan ikamamatay na yung pain bago pa kami dalhin sa dentist. That was how much we scrimped on money. There's an episode in 30 Rock where Jack Donaghy sizes up Liz Lemon and tells her that she can act all smart but he knows she's insecure because she grew up poor. Flabbergasted Liz asks how he knew that and Jack says her bad teeth gave her away.
It's true. Straight, perfect, white teeth is all you need to look polished, sophisticated and rich. You can be toting a designer bag but if your teeth are crooked, your whole look is ruined. On the other hand, you can be in a simple tee and jeans but flash a bright and beautiful smile and you instantly look like a million bucks. Observe:

According to my orthodontist, I had big teeth and I had too many of them so they were crowding in my mouth. That gave me a snout. I could never close my mouth! Para akong kabayo. So the ortho pulled out four huge teeth and installed braces on me.
But now after three pregnancies and because of my laziness to wear my retainers, my teeth are moving again. A trip to the dental clinic just before I got pregnant last year showed I need to have braces again.
How about you? What's the one thing you did that changed your look (your life!)?
