Exciting News for the Modern Bohemian

For those of you who may not know, I have horrible teeth.  I mean, really horrible teeth.  They're straight but discolored and slowly (well, not SO slowly) rotting.  I have had almost all my teeth filled, had a root canal, and have had to use special toothpaste and mouthwash for ages.  Apparently, I have naturally awful teeth (inherited) and all my illnesses and vitamin deficiencies played a huge role in making them worse, as did the antibiotics I have taken all my life.  Also, to make things worse... I'm addicted to pop and I'm a mouth breather (sometimes) when I sleep.  So end result: Bad teeth.
Well, here's the exciting part.  On Monday I start the process to get my teeth capped from canine to canine.  Basically: new teeth!!! Yay!  I am so excited!
I have been feeling sad about my smile not looking so great because I love to smile, but now I think I'll get that confidence back.
I do feel guilty, because my parents are (somehow) paying for it!  But both of them just want to make sure that I get it done, partly for my health and also because they know it's been hard and they want me to make a good impression and be confident again.
So yeah.  Monday. New teeth. :) Yay!!!!!
Have a great weekend.  I hope your Monday brings good things like mine does.
Peace and Love,
Meagan
