Sitting at home, watching the snow with my cheeks swollen like a chipmunk. Got 4 wisdom teeth taken out plus a 5th tooth and a bone graft.
Most people don't know this about me but my smile is my least desirable feature I see in my self. I can remember growing up looking in the mirror or smiling for my cheer pics, and realizing how much I hated to look at them. I got teased and will never forget the comments like "you'll never be kissed" "your cute unless you smile"...ya know, rude kid shit. My bottom teeth are overlapped and crowded, and my top have been turning the older I get. So yesterday... I faced my fear of the dentist and I am finally starting the process of loving my smile again. First step.. 5 teeth romoved and a bone graft. Its going to be a long process but I am on my way to Smiling big and proud. 😁
