One woman’s fear of the dentist has kept her away from getting dental care for years and it has wreaked havoc on her smile – but that is all about to change.
When Tannha was a child, her uncle died while at the dentist and his death has created extreme fear and anxiety in her. After years of avoiding the dentist and many cavities, she is now missing 5 of her teeth.
“I feel that I’m disgusting and I have bad breath. I feel alone. I feel embarrassed,” she shares with The Doctors admitting that she’s worried her dental issues are also affecting the rest of her health. “I fear that I might die because of the state of my teeth,” she continues.
With the help of cosmetic dentist Dr. Bill Dorfman and a team of experts that included cosmetic dentist Dr. Grant Loosvelt, they were able to make Tannha smile for the first time in a long time and Dr. Dorfman says the results will “knock your socks off.”
Before undergoing her mouth makeover, a nervous but hopeful Tannha says, “I don’t have to live like this. I can conquer this and I want to be whole again.”
A beaming Tannha joins the panel with her equally beaming new teeth, telling The Doctors, “I feel wonderful and unreal… I’m still dreaming, but I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to be able to smile again.”
