43: TEETH DREAMS



Before I went to Costa Rica to get my teeth fixed I use to have these teeth dreams from time to time. I would dream that my nasty teeth started to fall out of my mouth and render me toothless. I would wake up and realize I still had my teeth...my disgusting, chipped, stained and gaped teeth. I would then wish there was something I could do to get my teeth fixed. I have no doubt that I had these dreams because I was always so aware of how bad my teeth were and how it affected my life. It consumed my mind in wake and sleep.

Now that I have a brand new smile and I am no longer consumed with thoughts of bad teeth can you guess what happened to my teeth dreams? Gone? NOPE! They have altered only slightly. Now I dream that my new white and straight teeth fall out. I wake up feeling my teeth with my tongue and then being so happy that it was all just a dream.

  1. Fantastic blog!

    And very helpful too, especially for someone like me who is also thinking about going to Costa Rica for dental work.

    Your teeth look absolutely fabulous! I have read that one of the first things people notice when meeting someone new is that persons teeth/smile. I have also been reluctant for years to talk/smile around other people because of the poor condition of my teeth, and I have now resolved to take the same journey you have taken.

    Your blog just reaffirms my view that you can't put a value on something as important as having a nice smile (but that doesn't mean you have to pay U.S. prices either!).

    Thank you for sharing your experience.

    1. HI Daniel and thank you so much for the kind words. The hardest part is making that leap of actually buying your airline ticket, getting down there and going to your first appointment. It's so easy to talk yourself out of it before those steps happen. But for me, and most others that I've spoke with, once you get those out of the way you will wonder why you didn't take this journey sooner in life.

      Good luck to you and please feel free to ask any question you may have.
