Day 29: What do you think of your teeth and your smile? Do you like them and if so why? If not how can you view them more positively?
Oh I groaned when I saw this question! I don’t like my smile. Actually I used to hate my smile but I’m getting used to it. It is what it is and I can’t change it. I have a gummy smile. My lips are quite thin, especially the top one. When I smile my top lip stretches and all of my top teeth and gums are visible. When I was about 13 a girl in my class (who always reminded me of one of the Plastics from the film Mean Girls) pointed out that when I smile I look like a horse. I started trying to smile with my lips together but it looked really fake so I gave up. Now that I’m older and hopefully wiser, I can see that I don’t really look like a horse. I just have a gummy smile.
How to view my smile more positively… I guess it makes me more unique!
