Hi Tyra, I have become anti-social over the last 10yrs, because of my teeth. 10yrs ago we had a handicapped child who was born with hypoglycemia with a seizure dissorder, our child needed 24hr care and so i quit my job and became a stay at home dad. I have 3 beautiful children and have always been a family man, there's nothing I wouldn't do for my family. I hate not being able to laugh, eat meat, or just be myself in and around people because of my teeth. They are that bad. I tryed to go to church because I feel that these kinda people wouldn't judge me but I feel my self esteem so low I can't be myself. I WISH I could get all my teeth pulled and have new ones like dental implants or something. I'm a truckdriver by trade so I've been able to keep a distance even in my job but I HATE not being able to go out and have a good time because I LOVE TO LAUGH, and smile, sometimes I FEAR I will be like this until the end can you help me.
sincerely Don Wallace

I'm 39 years old with 2 children. When I was young I fell down allot which caused my teeth to shift. Right now they are so bad my mouth hurts all the time it's hard for my to even close my mouth. Sleeping at night is really not good for me because of the problem I have with my teeth. I did go to a dentist to get an estimate and was told it will cost $10,000 dollars out of pocket. I don't have this kind of money and need help.

Hi, I'm 29 years old and have had extensive dental work in the past that is failing. I work in an oral surgeons office and I'm a very happy smiley person. It's embarassing in my profession to not have good teeth. I am currently living at home with my parents and helping them to pay the bills since my father has been unemployed for quite a while. I cannot afford dental work and am in constant pain because of it. Both physically and emotionally. I am too young to have the problems I have. My front right central and lateral incisors need work and hurt every day. I have two implants on the lower right that I cannot afford crowns for. My upper right crowns need to be replaced and there is boneloss in that area. I am embarassed to smile, especially at work. This is something that is on my mind 24/7. Any help would truly be appreciated and help me feel like a whole person again. Thank you for listening.

Hi Tyra,
This is my second tme writing you ad i came across this site so i gave it a shot. I'm lost mentally, ph tyically, and emotionally. I have no where to turn and i'm praying that someone hears my cries. I was molested my whole life by my mom's boyfriend and she knew about it. I felt like since she didn't care y should I and i literally stopped taking care of myself at a young age(not to mention we never had dental insurace). I have been to school time and have my M.A and CNA n want to go back to finish the RN program. I have 3 kids and i am a single parent who can't even make ends meet as it is. My kids have never seen me smile. Honestly i am in to much pain on a daily basic to do anything. I am ashamed at the amount of pills i take on a daily basis. I take 4 tylenol wth codine. I take 4 500mg of Naproxen. I take 4 Ultram or whatever else i have. I am not asking for anything fancy i just wanna smile.

I am too young to have these dental problems that cause major migranes but I do, primarily due to malntirion for me it happened during my pregnancy with my first child but didn't quite breaking down until I had my second child in the hospital room during labor. Being a single parent money was always an issue but I decided that I had to go back to school so my career would pay for the extensive dental procedures necessary for me to have a better smile and idealy improve my health and heart. Honestly because of this insecurity the true me has been locked away and feel as though if you were to broadcast this and put it the air I would be to shy to go threw with it. Seriously I watched Extreme Makeover since day one researched their makeover dentist's background and still have not contacted them.
I guess pain is something I 've ben dealing with for years, I'd like it to stop both emotionally and physically.

I've recently lost my job, and i have an amazing two year old boy to support.However weeks will past without me having a single dollar to my name. I try my hardest not to toll my family and friends with my problems so i just Hhide everything and pretend as if im doing just fine. But living a second life is really taking an effect on me physiccally and emotionally.
Before the birth of my child I found out that I was anemic nad during the past 18 months I have lost more than half of my theeth in my mouth. Out of 32 theeth I have lost 20 and I woke up this morning to find out that Im soon to loose a next one real soon, and to make matters worst its in the very front of my mouth.My front thooth is cracked in half. Tyra i dont know what to do or who to turn to.
I cant even picture myself leaving the house like this. I want to find a new job but im so ashame to go on interviews, and I keep avoding my friends calls cause I dont want them to see me like this.
Tyra ive seen from above that you have many cries for help every single day, and i know that you cant save the world even though you wish you could. However i pray to God that you can save me. I pray that you may listen to my cry and help me because , God knows i need your help right now. TYRA PLEASE PLEASE HELP MEEE AND MY CHILDS FUTURE!!!!

My teeth are probably the worst many have seen. I have had a partial for 5 years now and it was only supposed to be a temp until I could get work done. Problem is I had lost my job and am so far behind I can't afford to get them fixed. I was warned by my previous dentist that I can end up with serious health issues and that does scare me. I know they all need to come out and I need dentures. I just don't see ever being able to afford it. I can't even talk to people because I feel they are staring at my mouth. Please help. I am lost

Hi! I am a 31 year old mother...of seven! I have three beautiful daughters of my own and four wonderful soon-to-be stepchildren. I'm getting married to the love of my life and we are planning towards a May (2010) wedding. My problem is my teeth. I've had problems with my teeth for years now. I had fillings put in nearly all of my teeth when I was about 12 years old. Over the years I have lost a lot of these fillings and my teeth are in bad shape. I've had a little work done here and there at the dental clinic where I live, but there is still so much that needs to be done. I can't afford to get what I need done and I have had two of my teeth causing me a lot of pain. Not to mention, I'm embarassed by my smile. This has seriously effected my self esteem. If there is any way you could help me get my teeth fixed I would be so thankful. I want to be able to smile and laugh with my family and friends without embarassment, especially on my wedding day. I want to be the beautiful bride-if I can't even smile at my own wedding without feeling insecure then how can I really enjoy the best day of my life? I appreciate any help you can offer.

Fri, 13 Nov 2009 20:26:42 +0000

Hi Tyra,

Let me get straight to the point. I'm a mom of two an eight and nineteen years old children. I work full-time as a monitor tech interpreting heart rhythms, and I go to school full-time to get a BSN in Nursing. I love helping people and I'm a giving person. When I talk to people though I'm afraid to smile because of the condition my teeth are in I do the best that I can with cleaning them but the structure sometimes makes me struggle with my outside beauty. I know that I'm pretty on the inside because of my faith but I feel that if I could get help with my teeth I could offer just as much beauty outside as of inside with the encouraging words that I give. I'm asking you to help me to be a smiling face for so many people who need a smile.

Love you!

For what i would give to have the whole works done to my teeth! I pray one day that I may have a smile just like yours Tyra Banks! To have a smile just like yours would mean more then the world to me. To make a difference by just smiling each day would be huge! Right now i feel like I'm going through a mid-life crisis at the age of only twenty-five due to only this issue. i just started a new opportunity called Dotcomwireless.com(a cell-phone company) and I'am so really to change my family cycle of living life by becoming one of the next 12vps in the company but my self-esteem isn't quite letting me do so. Having my grand opening would be the happiest day of my life if I could just express it with one smile. Will u help me Tyra please pretty please! help me to make my family proud by giving me a Hollywood smile so it may help me in helping others!! Greatly appreciated Maria Cruz

Hey Tyra! - You're the best.

I don't watch TV too much, but I got to recently catch some of your show about young teens who think they're ready to wed or have babies. Wow. Unbelievable and revealing. Way to go!

About me - I'm like the woman who commented before me - In serious need of dental work I can't even begin to afford. I'm a 34 year old full time manager of a small cafe in Philly. I feel I was adopted at 3 months with bad teeth, and over the years they've been falling apart. I'm a good looking guy, but I can't begin to tell you how I feel about smiling. I'd gladly share anything about my story that you'd like - and I know it's probably a long shot - but, is there anyway you can help me??

Hi Tyra,
I love your show.
Somehow i got onto this site with people not liking their smiles so i thought i may as well comment on how mine is.
I am a divorced mum of 2 kids,all my life i have had bucked teeth which i hate.I have alot of other medical problems which have came first and i dont have money to get the perfect smile that i have always wanted.
I dont get my picture taken and people think im stuck up because i dont smile when they are talkin to me.
I try to avoid social situations so i dont have to smile .I wanna smile on the outside as much as i do on the inside.If i had a beautiful smile it would totally change my life dramatically,soon my kids are going to be big and i havent got any photos taken with them.
With everything i have gone through throughout my life i truly deserve to have something wonderful happen maybe oneday soon.

HI Tyra, My name is Julia I am only 26 years old and sick all the time because my teeth I have some major health issues I can not pay for the work to get done I just make enough to get by. I have found the state cant help me I dont know where to turn I am young and pretty until I open my mouth I dont even want to leave my house other than working, Not to mention the horrible pain im in as we speak.

Mon, 26 Apr 2010 22:05:09 +0000

Hi Tyra! My names Mallory, I'm 16, and Ive always loved you and your show! My problem is I never smile.. and every time I do in rare occasions I'm completely self conscious and feel ugly like people are staring at my teeth. I only have one or two problem teeth but i feel like they ruin my whole smile. I've been to a dentist once before and they said even a retainer might fix my problems and I have gorgeous teeth, if only they were straightened a little bit. Ive even been told a lot i should be a model actually.. I'm tall and been told i have the right face. Problem is i have no money.. if i had a confident smile i feel it would change my life for the better and improve my very low self esteem. Tyra please help me! all my life ive suffered from this and I really cant take it anymore..
Always, Mallory

Sat, 05 Jun 2010 03:24:28 +0000

Ms Tyra, Don't know how I stumbled across this site...all praises to God our Father. I'm 43 (don't look it)and due to my fear of the dentist & to top it off no dental insurance or money to pay for dental expences, my teeth have gone to crap! They are so bad its to the point im pulling out my own teeth beacuse of pain & decay. I REALLY don't want this anymore. I speak with the public daily and, well, bad teeth and bad breath can "kill the deal" and my job is to seal the deal. I have often prayed that if I got a second chance at a new mouth, I promised God I would not ruin the blessing with fear. (Geez, I'm in tears now.) I told my children once they (my teeth) start falling out the front of my mouth, I could not ever leave the house again. Please help me. Please.

I don't know how I got to this site, but I thought it might be worth a shot, I am a 37 year old single mother work part time and take online classes.
I have gum disease and my teeth hurt me all the time, I can't hardly eat, sleep and with my teeth hurting me all the time It gives me bad headache's.
I want to get all my teeth pulled and get dentures, but it is going to cost me two-thousand dollars, with affordable dentures in Rocky Gap Virginia, I can't afford it. All of my teeth are loose, I am eventually going to lose them all.. I have always hated to smile because I have a gap in the front that is about an inch and half. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You

hi tyra my name is concetta im 28 years old and im desperate for dental work but i cant afford it i have very low self esteem im always depress and in pain when i see everybody smiling and looking at that beutifull smile makes me wanna cry because when i look at my self im ugly i take pics. never with a smile....so i was hoping u can help me gain back my self esteem...

Tue, 21 Sep 2010 14:56:07 +0000

Dear Tyra,
I can't even imagine that you will read this, but I have nothing to lose by posting. I, like everyone else here, desparately need dental work done. I have severe problems including and caused by my teeth. I have problems with headaches, sinus drainage issues, inability to eat correctly and self esteem issues. I just want to have my teeth removed while I am out cold and some dentures put in while I am still asleep.
I have a small dental policy but I don't qualify for the CareCredit to finish paying for the work I need done. I could probably go and have a couple pulled at a time, but I am paralysed with fear. I just want to go get it over with and get on with my life. I estimate it will take no more than about $5,000.00.
My father had teeth like this and I didn't understand. Now it is my turn and it is really lowering my quality of life. I don't smile and if I do I cover my mouth. I can't eat even a banana without cutting it or mashing it. Sandwiches are broken in small pieces or cut in 1/2 in strips that will fit in the side of my mouth.
I am not even asking for the work to be done for free... If someone would just let me pay back the money in payments.
Hey, I know... Why don't you pay what my insurance won't cover, open an account where I can repay the money and as the money is repaid use it to do the same for someone else. The benificiary could sign a contract, thereby being liable for repayment. For a one time donation on your part you could help many, many people. Just look at this website! Look how many lives you could change, the "brownie points" you could rack up for yourself.
Enough said. If you want to have a meeting of the minds on this, I'm here.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Dear Tyra: I'm writing to you to be considered for a dental make-over. I'm 59 I'm a Certified Ophthalmic Technician and I help people see everyday,what really bothers me is my smile. I grew up poor and my parents could not afford dental, now my teeth are falling out the other day I was with my beautiful granddaughter and she asked Grandma why don't you smile you are so pretty and I said Grandma has ugly teeth and about that time one of my teeth fell out!! OMG she was just like Grandma are you ok and will the rest of your teeth do that. So if you would please consider me I would love to smile in a picture for my granddaughter.

Thank You

wow what can i say, when its happening to you, you feel as if your the only one in the world with this problem but i see i'm not. i don't want to give you a long drawn out explanation so heres the short of it....im 43 have very bad teeth partly due to an abusive relationship where i had two of my teeth chipped from the abuse and wasnt allowed to seek treatment so they got infected and thus infected more. i had many pulled out but others are still in need. its a vicious cycle, fix one and three more are in need, anyways if by chance you could help me get my joy back, and by no means am i asking for a handout just a hand up, i would be indebted to you for eternity. i am willing to work it off, cleaning toilets mopping or whatever, not a handout a hand up.
with deepest regards: michelle

Not looking to be on your show. Just need help with dental bills that will be coming my way. Either way I will get it paid but it would be nice to have some help. Single parent all my life of two, work full time now and also a part time job at 26 hours a week, still not enough money to pay bills and get dental work done quickly. Yes, self consciensous about smile. Need bone grafting to get implants. I am 43 years old. Also trying to get car fixed, new furniture (mine is falling apart - literally). Two children still at home, each with a girlfriend and one child each. I love my grandchildren very very much. The girls are working but not the boys. The agreement was who ever got hired first will take the job and the girls got hired first. Probably because they look more the part. Just want to get teeth fixed so I am more comfortable in relationships and public. Can you help? Can't get a loan for it, credit is not so good. I can afford at least $1500 but I think it is going to cost about $10,000. Anything you can do would help, anythng. Please respond. Thank you.

I am 55 yrs old i do feel my life has left me. I used to smile all the time,now i dont even want to be around people anymore. No one wants to hire me because of my looks, Im ugly now, and my self-esteem has left me. I have never gotten any breaks in life, Im only hoping that someone can feel my pain. I am very depressed and alone please, please give me my life back, please, Im not a very good looking person anymore,but not having a smile makes me ugly

Hi Tyra, My name is Michael, Im a 32 year old father of 2. I'm currently working for a management agency as a Porter/Concierge & my physical appearance is very important. I have issues with my teeth that prevent me from confidently smiling when greeting guest & residence of my building. I've also been revered to as anti social or up tight because I often don't open up to people due to the appearance of my teeth. Is there anyway you can help me? I would love to smile big when taking pictures with my children. Please contact me via email. God Bless.

I am a 34 yr old mother of four, dont have a job right now, dont have insurance, i am on calworks cash aid and bearly making it, my front bottom teeth are loose and feel like they are about to fall out, i have been going on interviews and feel like if this goes on i will have no teeth, right now i have trouble smiling and dont want to and feel really
anti social with everyone. please help me, i really need help, i am young and want to progress but i feel like this is holding me back from going after my goals, i know it may not be a big deal but to me it is, its the difference between progressing and being stuck because i feel like my teeth almost falling out are holding me from going out there and putting my best face out there.

I have no idea who will EVER read this, but was searching for a talk show covering dental problems CAUSED by dentists. Found this. I was lucky for 20 yrs. Never had braces,perfect beautiful teeth,always took care of them. I had a child,my teeth began breaking apart. Fillings helped but after a few thousand dollars of work(no insurance and when I did have it, it was WORTHLESS b/c it covered none of the things Ineeded) it looked good,for a while,but b/c ran out of money the work was left undone,now I have medicaid and jobs not as good as one before so cant pay outright. My front tooth is half gone, so now I am forced to SUPERGLUE it everyday,and since the glue burned a hole in my pants I can only wonder how bad it is for me to put into my mouth. But when ur desperate u will do what u gotta do. I am a waitress and will NOT leave house w/o my front tooth. I am on antibiotics 3 wks a month b/c the infection is always in one tooth or another.I have eight left and none are able to be saved. Medicaid will pull em out but then what,am I supposed to be a 35 yo mother and go to the kids school w/o any teeth. I am willing to do ANYTHING if i could just get my whole story out there. I can pay but not all at once. If I could get a shot on tv maybe a dentist would see my story and let me make $100 a month payments,I would pay ANYTHING if they would just take payments,I would cut off a limb (absolutely serious!) to be able to eat anything other than ice cream or oatmeal which has been my diet for three yrs.I haven't had sex in three yrs or even had a date b/c I am ashamed and before I know it,Im gonna just get older and be ALONE! I have taken care of my kids,ones in college,taken care of my disabled mom and now its time for something for me, I am TIRED of putting my hand in front of my mouth when I 'smile' I HAVE to smile, its my job! I have gained 50 pounds b/c I only can eat bad food b/c every bite hurts if its solid,I havent bitten into a sandwich in 3 yrs!!!I am depressed and the ER Dr told me I could drop dead any day b/c of all the infections I get. But, of course there is no dentists that take medicaid! I am NOT a bum, I want to pay I just dont have 10 grand all up front. I have searched the net for three yrs for a program to help find a dentist that takes payments,but there is NONE!too many ppl didnt pay,ruined it for the rest of us!!I was told at the LAST dentist that I had poor dental work done yrs ago and bacteria got into the fillings and after the thousands they took from me I am left with 8 teeth! No recourse and no one will listen! The statistics are shocking on how many ppl die from heart attacks and infection from dental problems, I wanna fight for something but don't know where to start. Thank you, if ANYONE reads this,We Are Suffering!

Hi tyra! I don't know if this is for real or fake, but if it is real then I am breaking down and begging for some help! My self esteem is ok that is not what is important to me. I am 30 years old and been on my own since I was 17 and have never been able to hold a job long enough for benefits. I am most worried about my health because I want to watch my daughter grow. I have a 6 year old and I fear if I don't get my teeth fix I could die because of them. They are absolutely horrible and when I got a 40 dollar xray done they grand totaled me at 20,000. I am sitting in pain right now and I been taking ibphrone everyday since thanksgiving.I been in school since 2010 and almost done completing my A.S. in digital media. I need your help please!!!

I really need help and scared of the dentist having no money doesn't help. Never really worried about my teeth always knew they was bad. But I can't sleep because of the pain and honestly I have two new grand daughters and I am so afraid of having an infection I can't recover from. I know I did this to myself and I deserve this but they dont.

Hi I'm only 23 and all of my teeth are in very bad shape and need to come out Medicaid will only give me dentures. Wich I've heard are not good for your bone structure. I really need dental implants but can not afford them. I don't no what else to do. I don't want publicity or of the sort as I am far too embarrassed to leave my home. I have a little girl whose three and I know she stares t my teeth. It's affecting my other health as well. I suffer from severe head pains and sensitivity. I go to bed at night wondering if I will even wake up tomorrow. I just broke one of my front teeth. I cant continue to live life this way. I don't know what else to do I've called and searched everywhere. This site came up e cause one of the comments was relevant to what I googled. Please help me before it too late. I'm sick of being so scared and unsure of what's gunna happen to me tomorrow. I'm so lost.

I am doing this for my supervisor. She does not know I'm doing this for her. This woman has been a dedicated worker to this family for years. She takes care of an elderly man. I think its about time someone does something nice for her because she deserves it. She needs her teeth done and can't afford to fix them herself. Right now her husband is ill and I just think it would be nice if you can make this happen. She would be so happy. If you could help her to get to her goal in her career too, that would be a blessing. She deserves to have nice things happen to her. Please reach me via email Bsilva13108@yahoo.com so I can explain.
