Hi My name is Lisa Downey , im 46 years old and I would really love this win this competition because I have no confidence with my smile , I lost all the calcium in my teeth when I was younger when I had kids , I have a group of friends with gorgeous teeth and I will never get in any pictures with them or at family parties over my teeth I am embarrassed to smile and even fear talking to people incase they judge how bad my teeth are , i just want a smile I can be proud of ,
A new beautiful smile will give me so much confidence , ive given up smoking after 35 years to try improve my teeth I haven’t had a smoke in 8 weeks . To win this would mean so much to me. Thank you for the amazing opportunity.
At 48 years of age I never thought I would have the opportunity to be able to smile without having a complex. As much as I thought about cosmetic dentistry, I could never justify funding it as there was always something else that would have to come first, being a Mammy to 3 children something always came up so you have to put yourself on the back burner.
I work in the public eye and while I can afford a closed mouth smile I’m always a bit wary and paranoid of showing off my teeth due to the colouring and staining. I think a lot of this was caused by many antibiotics throughout my life as I am type 1 diabetic and more prone to infection than most. I have over the years googled cosmetic dentistry abroad, but then wouldn’t be willing to take the risk as you hear so many horror stories. I love life and am always in good form. The thoughts of being able to give a wide smile without paranoia has already got me beaming from ear to ear. I can’t believe I have come this far in this competition, this prize would mean the world to me.
