A Toothy Giveaway

by Meghann on June 16, 2010

Good Morning! πŸ™‚

Coming into the office this morning was a much more pleasurable experience than yesterday. Never before has AC felt so good. πŸ™‚

And thanks to last night’s rain, my run wasn’t quite has hot and sticky as it could have been if I had ran yesterday. Trust me, it was still a very hot and sticky four miles that I slowly pounded out this morning, but on a scale of 1 – 10 on hot and stickiness I would only rate it a 6.5.

And on a 1-10 scale of a cool and satisfying breakfast, I would rate this morning’s cereal a 10. πŸ™‚

The mix:

  • 1/2 cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares (the last of the box πŸ™ )
  • 1/2 cup Kashi Cinnamon H2H
  • 1/2 cup Cranberry Granola
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Strawberry Preserves
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries

IMG_9986

The preserves added to the mix gave the cereal a great summer touch. It mixed with the yogurt and paired beautifully with the fresh fruit. πŸ™‚

Say Hello to my New Best Friends…

Ironically enough right before my teeth went bad last week I received two separate packages containing just the tools I needed to help fix it.

The first was a bottle of Crest 3D White Multi-Care Whitening Rinse that Ashley had sent me a while back, but I never used for one reason or another. Once my teeth started going yellow I figured there would be no better time to give it a shot than the present. πŸ˜‰

I’ve been swishing a capful of the mouth rinse twice a day following my normal brush and newly formed flossing routines. It taste great and leaves my mouth feeling fresher and cleaner after each rinse.  According to the bottle the rinse’s β€˜triple-action formula removes surface stains, kills bad breath germs, and actually protects against future stains.’ It also claims to contain the same whitening ingredients as the 3D White Strips.

I love all the whitening power the rinse has, but from the little research I’ve done on the bottle it doesn’t seem to have the preventative gum care and tarter control elements that I need in the future. I will continue to use the bottle until it runs out and then research other rinses that will give my mouth all the good protecting powers that it needs! πŸ™‚

The second was a present from the people at P&G and MS&L containing the Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000 electric toothbrush to review.

(source)

When I asked for advice on what to do about my teeth, plenty of you recommended an electric toothbrush to help fight the tarter build up. In fact, my dental hygienist had recommended one as well. Did you know that using a power toothbrush, like the Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000, will remove more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush, prevent gingivitis and can reach deep between teeth and along the gum line for a thorough clean?

I couldn’t wait to put this toothbrush to the test.

Honestly, the toothbrush was just easy. What’s hard about pressing the button and going at it on your teeth? Nothing. If anything the electric toothbrush made me feel better mentally because I felt like the buzzing sound was having a better effect at removing my stains than my normal manual brushing habit would. Plus, the toothbrush is easy to charge and once it’s charge it can go over a week without charging again.

With the combination of the whitening rinse, electric toothbrush, flossing, super duty baking soda enhanced toothpaste, and stopping the perio-rinse treatment I can already see a difference in the appearance of my teeth. I’m not ready to post any before and after photos yet, but they’re getting there. πŸ˜‰

An Oral-B Giveaway

I know I’m not the only one out there with bad teeth, so why not share the Oral-B ProfessionalCare 1000 love with someone else who truly needs it?

The great folks at P&G and MS&L are offering up one Oral-B Professional Care 1000 electric toothbrush to one lucky GraduateMeghann reader. Here’s your chance to win the toothbrush to test out for yourself! 

Simply leave a comment on this post with something POSITIVE to say about your winning smile.

For instance my front tooth is slightly chipped and even though countless dentists have told me they can fix it, I simply won’t let them because that chipped tooth is me. It’s been a part of my smile for 20 years and I can’t let them take it away. I always smile –chipped tooth and all – with pride. πŸ™‚

You have until tomorrow morning to leave a comment. I will announce the random winner during my breakfast post.

Good luck!

1 Tracy June 16, 2010 at 9:15 am

I love my smile! My dad says it lights up even the darkest room. Its easily my favorite physical feature πŸ™‚

2 Katie June 16, 2010 at 9:18 am

Not going to lie–for most of my life I’ve hated my smile, but I’ve finally accepted it is what it is. Can’t change it and I’d rather look happy for the rest of my life–a smile of any kind looks better than none at all!

3 dorrybird June 16, 2010 at 9:19 am

I love this idea! I have a crazy about a disco rollerskating party in during the summer of 2006. My fiance was one of 3 hosts of the party but there were over 100 people there and I never met him! I just heard his name because it was on the evite. When I did meet him over 2 years after the party, we laughed about the fact that I fell on my face and chipped my front tooth. When I joked about suing him for damages, he reminded me that he had everyone sign a waiver – that’s the attorney in him. πŸ™‚

4 Lauren June 16, 2010 at 9:20 am

I love my smile because even though I have a large scar on my lower lip, when I grin my whole body and spirit feel happy and bright!

5 Nicky June 16, 2010 at 9:20 am

i love my smile, even with my big chunky fake front tooth! falling on a frozen lake when i was 6 and breaking my front tooth sure made for a unique smile, but a difficult one to keep clean! πŸ˜‰

6 akeorlando June 16, 2010 at 9:22 am

Your office had no AC yesterday? In this awful heat?

7 Kim King June 16, 2010 at 9:22 am

A smile can tell alot about you. Sometimes when I don’t have alot to say, all I have to do is flash a smile to brighten someones day.

8 Brie @ Brie Fit June 16, 2010 at 9:22 am

I had braces for three years in COLLEGE and it was totally awkward trying to pick up guys at frat parties with a metal mouth. Thankfully, now my smile is nice and straight and it looked great in my wedding pictures that I just got back!

9 Jess June 16, 2010 at 9:25 am

My smile isn’t perfect but it is perfectly me. As a kid I cracked both front teeth in a fall but didn’t lose them, they both have a faint but visible crack across them and aren’t perfectly straight but they give my smile character and a story to tell.

10 Ashley June 16, 2010 at 9:26 am

A smile costs nothing but gives so much! I had braces for 4 years when I was younger and would often smile without showing my teeth. Once they came off you couldn’t get me to stop smiling and showing off those pearly whites!

11 Rachel June 16, 2010 at 9:26 am

I have a chipped front tooth too and I also refuse to fix it!

12 Lizzy June 16, 2010 at 9:26 am

I love my smile, because even though my teeth are exactly straight, i smile with pride because my teeth are me! i love my smile!

13 Lizzy June 16, 2010 at 9:27 am

aren’t exactly straight is what i meant to say

14 Frugal 'n' Fit! June 16, 2010 at 9:27 am

Getting braces when I was 12 was one of the best decisions I (and my mom!) ever made. Now I love to show my teeth in a smile! πŸ™‚

15 Juliene June 16, 2010 at 9:27 am

I love that my smile hasn’t changed even though my face has, it’s amazing that no matter your age or weight your smile is always recognizable. I also feel pretty lucky that I have naturally straight teeth, no braces here!

16 Hannah Hawley June 16, 2010 at 9:27 am

I love my dipples that show when I smile!

17 Anna June 16, 2010 at 9:27 am

I love my smile because it is contagious!

18 Michele June 16, 2010 at 9:28 am

I like the shape of my teeth. Not too big. Not too small. Just right.

19 Nikita June 16, 2010 at 9:28 am

I used to hate my smile for the longest time since I have uneven teeth and I was very conscious about it. Then I realized that nobody even notices the uneven teeth when someone smiles. I love my smile now πŸ˜€

20 HappyWhenNotHungry June 16, 2010 at 9:28 am

My teeth are far from perfect as well! When I was little, my two front teeth fell out attached to each other, so from about 3rd-5th grade, my smile consisted of a big, wide gap accompanied by a new hair perm my mom thought would look “cool” (please note: this was the early 90’s). Then in 8th grade I became one of the first kids in my class to get brasses and wear rubber bands as well as a retainer. After surviving that awkward stage of my middle school life, I began to excessively grind my teeth at night. As a result, to this day (I’m 27), I still wear a mouth guard at night and have what doctors call receding gums. After all my years of dental travesties and spouts of awkwardness, I still love my smile and will always flash my pearly whites (along with some gum line as well)!

21 HappyWhenNotHungry June 16, 2010 at 9:30 am

Ooops… I meant braces πŸ™‚

22 atastelife June 16, 2010 at 9:29 am

I’ve never had a cavity. But my smile took years to get it to where it is now – involving many teeth pullings, retainer before braces, braces more retainer – but so worth it. Your smile says it all!!!

23 Brooke June 16, 2010 at 9:29 am

I love my smile. I’ve had braces, retainers, and head gear (yes I did), but after that, I smile brightly knowing my teeth are straight and pretty. My smile lifts up my whole face, relaxes me, and makes my eyes glow! Yeah for a fantastic giveaway and spreading positive energy!

24 Anne @ the doctor takes a wife June 16, 2010 at 9:30 am

I”m pretty much obsessed with my electric toothbrush. It makes my life complete.

25 Holly June 16, 2010 at 9:30 am

I have a dimple that I used to hate but have grown to love as a unique part of me!

26 Lauren @ Dragonflies Journey June 16, 2010 at 9:30 am

What I love most about my smile is that it’s very straight and pretty. It may not be the whitest smile in the world (I’m currently finishing a round of Crest 3D Whitestrips) but it’s pretty just the same. I’ve never needed braces and I’ve always had good dental hygiene. I’d have to say that it is probably one of my favorite features about myself.

27 adrienmelaine June 16, 2010 at 9:31 am

Your breakfast bowls are always the cutest- do you always make your food knowing you’ll be taking a photo of it, or does even the stuff you don’t post look that good?

28 emilyr June 16, 2010 at 9:33 am

I never had braces & I love my smile because it doesn’t look like anyone else’s.

29 Gina G June 16, 2010 at 9:33 am

i love my smile because i love the meaning it holds behind it. A smile can brighten anyones day πŸ™‚

30 Jean June 16, 2010 at 9:34 am

I love my smile because I know it can make others smile as well!

31 Megan June 16, 2010 at 9:34 am

I love my smile becuase my teeth are SUPER straight…gotta thank the orthodontist for that–big time!! πŸ˜€

32 Meg June 16, 2010 at 9:34 am

I love my smile – it’s my favorite part of my body!! But someone recently told me that my teeth look like Reese Witherspoon’s – which made me realize that we all know wayyyy too much about celebrities LOL

33 Alexandra Chappell June 16, 2010 at 9:34 am

After 5 YEARS of braces, I am happy to say that I LOVE my smile, and my teeth :).

34 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday June 16, 2010 at 9:36 am

Unroast: I have great teeth. They’re perfectly straight and they look beautiful when I smile.

35 Danielle June 16, 2010 at 9:36 am

I love how smiling improves my mood!

36 Kate June 16, 2010 at 9:38 am

I love that every smile in unique, my is kinda crooked but I like it that way.

37 Ellen June 16, 2010 at 9:38 am

I ? my teeth!

My bro used to call me ‘shark teeth’ due to my multiple rows, but a few years back I purchased braces for myself and my confidence shot straight up! Orthodontist have a special place in my heart. ?

38 Kate June 16, 2010 at 9:39 am

I have a madonna-like space in my front teeth that i won’t get fixed because it’s part of who I am πŸ™‚

39 sarah June 16, 2010 at 9:39 am

i love my smile because my husband loves it and compliments it all the time! thanks mom & dad for those braces πŸ™‚

40 Allison B. June 16, 2010 at 9:39 am

I love my smile! My teeth have never had braces and are strong. I have my dad’s teeth and they are great. My smile is unique and I have even been told once I was hired for it! (A server position). I try to take great care of my teeth and would love to try this toothbrush out!

41 Brittany June 16, 2010 at 9:39 am

My mom always tells me that my smile is worth more than her car! (because of all the money she apparently invested in it while I was growing up)

Even with that said, I have a permanent retainer behind my bottom row of teeth. When people happen to see it, they say things like “Oh! I had one of those in elementary school…..” or “WOW! I’m so sorry you have to wear that…”

When really, I just brush it off because I know that my straight teeth will last me a lifetime! πŸ™‚

42 Emily G. June 16, 2010 at 9:39 am

Ok First..you’re breakfast looks sooo delish!!!

Something positive about my winning smile? They’re pearly white and straight! My oral surgeon even told me I had a Cadillac mouth! SWOOSH! Also, I must say I look a lot cuter with a smile on my face! πŸ™‚ I’ve got to draw the boys in somehow!!

43 Avryan June 16, 2010 at 9:41 am

Thankfully I inherited my mom’s straight and strong teeth. Never had a cavity and no need for braces : )

44 Jenna June 16, 2010 at 9:41 am

Your breakfast looks so yummy. I love to smile! Smiling is my favorite as Elf would say. I smile even though I have two huge front teeth….kind of like a bunny haha. When I was younger I hated them but now I smile with pride!

45 Meghan June 16, 2010 at 9:42 am

One of my front-ish teeth juts out…just like my dad!

46 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 9:42 am

One good thing I can say about my teeth is that they are straight. I went to a new dentist once and he asked if I had braces (I have not). I guess that is a good thing.

I hope all of your new tools work out for you!!

47 marci June 16, 2010 at 9:42 am

hmm, My winning smile πŸ™‚ sometimes I feel like I should smile with my lips closed becuase I have big front teeth buts its hard becuase the push through my lips sometimes and you can see them still πŸ™‚ so that’s my smile teeth in all. So i’d like to keep them white as possible if people are gonna be seeing them.

48 Kathy F. June 16, 2010 at 9:44 am

I went through years of braces as well as jaw surgery to get my smile to what it is today! I definitely appreciate it now, even though it still isn’t perfect…it’s me πŸ™‚

49 Laura June 16, 2010 at 9:44 am

I love my smile… when I look at pictures the only ones that I think I look good in are the ones I am smiling! Thank you mom & dad for the braces in my younger years : )

50 kristin June 16, 2010 at 9:44 am

I endured years of braces for this smile, and I’m definitely proud of it! Although… my coffee habit has made my teeth look a little less than pearly white, so I could really use that toothbrush! πŸ™‚

51 Toni June 16, 2010 at 9:44 am

I love my smile, but what I love most is the gap between my two front teeth. The orthodontist wanted to insert a permanent upper retainer but I refused. The gap makes me, ME!

52 Elizabeth June 16, 2010 at 9:44 am

I like that my teeth are aligned and straight, and I have been learning to smile more naturally for photos. πŸ™‚

53 Heather @ Side of Sneakers June 16, 2010 at 9:45 am

I had braces for 13 (yes 13) years, and still have crooked teeth (and a chipped tooth) but I still smile big & proud πŸ™‚ I couldn’t imagine NOT smiling πŸ˜‰

54 Candice L. June 16, 2010 at 9:45 am

My teeth are straight, even without braces!

55 Emily H June 16, 2010 at 9:45 am

I’m quite thankful for never having braces, retainers, etc. Nada. I got off easy I guess!

56 Jo June 16, 2010 at 9:46 am

I was once told that one could see my smile across a crowded room.

57 Danielle June 16, 2010 at 9:47 am

After 4 years of braces, I love to show off my beautiful, straight teeth!

58 jennyinnewyork June 16, 2010 at 9:49 am

I like how genuine my smile looks in candid photos. πŸ™‚

59 Heather June 16, 2010 at 9:49 am

Hi Meghann!
What a great giveaway! My one front tooth sticks out from when I sucked my thumb as a kid, but despite that I smile A LOT. A guy at the gym told me yesterday it’s so refreshing to see me smiling all the time. πŸ™‚

60 Lynzy June 16, 2010 at 9:49 am

Love your blog<3

My pearly whites! I had braces for 5 years so I show them off as much as possible πŸ™‚

My smile is almost always genuine, and never far away. πŸ™‚

62 jamie p June 16, 2010 at 9:52 am

i have one smaller tooth right in the front, and I feel ya, its totally me now!! I used to turn my head for pictures so it wouldnt show, now I tilt my head so you can see it. my one smaller tooth is cute! πŸ™‚

63 Hanna June 16, 2010 at 9:52 am

I love my smile! It brightens my day, and all those who are around me too!

64 Elizabeth June 16, 2010 at 9:53 am

I have straight teeth and I never even needed braces!

65 Robin June 16, 2010 at 9:53 am

Great giveaway! I actually love my smile. It totally transforms my face and I have a slight obsession with teeth…it is a common joke among my friends so this toothbrush would fit right into my routine!

66 Kristen June 16, 2010 at 9:54 am

I never had to get braces but when my wisdom teeth came in they pushed some of my teeth around and made me self-conscious about my smile.

But I always get compliments on my teeth and my smile! It took me a while to embrace my smile since I never felt my teeth were that great, but after years of genuine comments, I believe it myself now and love my smile!

Kristen

67 Conni B June 16, 2010 at 9:54 am

My smile is probably my favorite asset. Thanks to 1.5 yrs of braces and serious retainer wearing my teeth are beautifully straight and I love them. Plus, I have naturally white teeth, I wake up with them white and go to bed with them white, even after eating and before brushing!! Thanks mom for the good teeth genes! lol.

68 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 9:54 am

I love when I’m genuinely and truly happy how my smile looks naturally. It lights up my face, and I never worry about how my teeth look.

69 Cathy June 16, 2010 at 9:55 am

I’ve had years of braces, expanders, retainers, spacers, rubberbands and finally invasive upper jaw surgery as a child and an adult, and yet still, there is one tooth on the bottom to the side that refuses to go completely straight. After all my mouth efforts, this bothered me for awhile but now I decided it’s the one quirky part of my mouth that doesn’t want to change – kind of like the stubborn part of my personality. (and no one can see it but me anyway!)

70 Beth June 16, 2010 at 9:56 am

I have a tooth slightly out of place but I think it makes my smile unique and I’ve learned to love it.

71 greenbean June 16, 2010 at 9:57 am

my smile is cute! that is all πŸ™‚

72 lauren June 16, 2010 at 9:58 am

i love my smile because ive got really straight teeth..whenever i go to the dentist im always complimented about it, which makes me more confident to smile more often πŸ™‚

73 emily June 16, 2010 at 9:58 am

When I smile I stick my tounge out between my teeth; it looks silly, but that’s me!

74 Britt June 16, 2010 at 9:59 am

I love my smile because I have never had braces. They aren’t perfect, but I think they give me character!

75 Kate June 16, 2010 at 10:01 am

Even though I had braces and wore my stupid retainers religiously, I still have a slight overbite. I feel like it’s super obvious, but people always compliment me on having a great smile – so I’ve stopped worrying about it!

76 Tracey June 16, 2010 at 10:01 am

I love my smile and have always been very proud of it because I think it lights up my face and encourages other people to open up to me. Smiles are truly contagious and I find that when you smile at someone, they tend to smile back – and that makes everyone feel good!
Thanks for such a great giveaway!

77 Crystal June 16, 2010 at 10:02 am

I love my “vampire teeth”! My lateral incisors (the ones right next to my two front teeth) stick out a bit and give my smile some character πŸ™‚

78 Ann June 16, 2010 at 10:02 am

My smile lights up my face! I never had to endure braces, and my teeth aren’t perfect. I’ve been procrastinating going to the dentist, it’s been 5 years!!, so I’d love to have sparkling clean teeth to show them when I do!

79 Danika June 16, 2010 at 10:03 am

I don’t have the best smile, but it is mine, and it is unique! So that is something to smile about. πŸ˜€

80 elisa June 16, 2010 at 10:04 am

I love my wide smile so much it makes me me

81 Danielle June 16, 2010 at 10:04 am

I’m the only person in my family who hasn’t had braces, so I consider that a positive πŸ˜‰

82 Tracey @ TropicalHappiness June 16, 2010 at 10:04 am

I love my smile… smiles and laughter are contagious… so my smile makes others smile! πŸ™‚

83 Fervent Foodie June 16, 2010 at 10:05 am

I love my smile and smiles in general because they are contagious!

84 sewwhatsarahs June 16, 2010 at 10:06 am

I love my smile just b/c it shows when I’m happy! My teeth are just a part of that package. πŸ™‚

85 AlisonJ June 16, 2010 at 10:06 am

I met someone once who recognized me from the gym. He said, “My friend and I always say how happy you must be because you always walk in smiling.” Put on a smile & your attitude instantly improves!

86 Emily June 16, 2010 at 10:06 am

My teeth are fantastically straight! I had braces for 7 years, but they were totally worth it for the straight, even smile I have now. πŸ™‚

87 Meg June 16, 2010 at 10:07 am

Thanks to four years of braces growing up–I love my smile! πŸ™‚

88 Allison June 16, 2010 at 10:08 am

I’ve always wanted one of those toothbrushes! I used to be self-conscious about my teeth because I thought they were too large in size for my mouth…but my mom told me I they gave me a beautiful smile and I have never stopped smiling since πŸ™‚

89 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 10:08 am

I love my smile because it cost $3000 to get them this way(ha!) and I will do whatever it takes to keep them pretty, clean, white and straight! πŸ™‚ I would LOVE an electric toothbrush! πŸ™‚

90 veganwhoopies June 16, 2010 at 10:10 am

I remember I worked with this guy who said that “my smile was American like apple pie”! Lol and believe it or not it wasn’t even creepy,it was just his weird way of giving me a compliment on my smile.

91 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 10:10 am

it took 6 years of braces to achieve my smile, but i’m always getting compliments, so i think it was worth it πŸ™‚

92 Elizabeth June 16, 2010 at 10:13 am

Because I spend a lot of my day laughing, I am really thankful for my smile.

93 Amanda June 16, 2010 at 10:14 am

After 4 years of braces, I love my smile!! I can’t even imagine what life would have been like without the braces…

94 Syl June 16, 2010 at 10:14 am

it took me to lose weight to gain my smile back, and now I think it’s my best feature, I love to smile πŸ˜‰

95 syl June 16, 2010 at 10:15 am

it took me to lose weight to gain a smile, and now I think it’s my best feature, I love to smile πŸ˜‰

96 Mia June 16, 2010 at 10:15 am

I like my smile because of my many years in braces–it took hard work to get here!

97 Heather June 16, 2010 at 10:16 am

I also have a chipped front tooth – although mine is capped because its like half my front tooth!

I had braces twice so I am super proud of my smile – i went through a lot of pain for those straight teeth.

98 Christy June 16, 2010 at 10:17 am

Like many other readers, the braces were worth it. Now I have a smile that gets compliments all the time. πŸ™‚

99 Sarah M June 16, 2010 at 10:19 am

I love my smile. I have always had fairly straight teeth and didn’t need braces and I receive tons of compliments on how nice my teeth are.

100 jennyh June 16, 2010 at 10:23 am

I love smiling it’s my favorite (To quote will farrell from Elf). I have been told my smile is magnetic πŸ™‚

101 Sara June 16, 2010 at 10:25 am

People comment that I’m always smiling…and it’s contagious! πŸ™‚

102 Megan June 16, 2010 at 10:26 am

I still have a baby tooth (I’m 30) – and I think it’s adorable πŸ™‚

104 Nicole June 16, 2010 at 10:27 am

I also have a chipped front tooth that doesn’t bother me at all! My fave part of my smile is actually my dimples but I have no complaints about my teeth!

105 Mary June 16, 2010 at 10:27 am

Even though I’ve had the works through 5 years of braces, headgear, rubber bands and even surgery to remove my impacted wisdom teeth, I still have an over bite. I wouldnt let them fix it because they would have to do it surgically, it doesnt affect my speech and I love my straight teeth just the way they are πŸ™‚

106 Jaclyn June 16, 2010 at 10:27 am

my bottom teeth are a little crooked from my wisdom teeth starting to grow in on an angle, but i still love my smile!

107 Tracy June 16, 2010 at 10:28 am

One of my bottom front teeth sticks out slightly– you can’t really see it, but this little imperfection makes me happy.

108 Marissa June 16, 2010 at 10:30 am

The shows I currently watch are The Next Food Network Star, The Last American Cowboy, and Losing it with Jillian. I like them all, especially The Last American Cowboy! The name is overdramatic, but its a great show that follows three very different ranches. Its so interesting!

109 jess June 16, 2010 at 10:31 am

Hey! Best of luck! I think smiles are by far the best thing a person can wear πŸ™‚ It’s definitely the first thing I notice on a person!

110 Moni June 16, 2010 at 10:33 am

I have huge front teeth, but they make my smile even bigger and brighter:)

111 Ashlee June 16, 2010 at 10:34 am

I’ve been wanting to get an electric toothbrush. I love my smile. And, even though my bottom teeth a slightly crooked, they make me who I am.

112 Stephanie June 16, 2010 at 10:34 am

I had braces when I was 13 and I always get told how beautiful my teeth are. Always makes me feel good. πŸ™‚

113 Lindsay June 16, 2010 at 10:34 am

I always receive compliments on my smile! It makes me happy because it is my mother’s smile. I have the same teeth and mouth-shape, and I am glad that such a beautiful part of her is a part of me too.

114 Jen June 16, 2010 at 10:34 am

I have to say the best thing about my smile is how often it happens – so my Mom always told me πŸ™‚

115 Ashley June 16, 2010 at 10:37 am

I love my smile, after 4 years of braces and a pallet expandor for a year, I make sure to smile whenever I can.

116 Elizabeth June 16, 2010 at 10:37 am

The other day, as I walked past my neighbor, he called out, “Always smiling!” His comment has made me think twice about being self-conscious about my less-than-perfect teeth. I am, after all, (almost) always smiling.

117 JESSICA Taylor June 16, 2010 at 10:41 am

I love my smile because it has carried me through some of the hardest times in my life. I’ve had lots of terrible events happen in my life and even though I’ve been sad my smile always seems to carry me through πŸ™‚

118 Melissa June 16, 2010 at 10:42 am

My smile is probably what I get the most compliments on. It’s a little mischievous.

119 WendyF June 16, 2010 at 10:42 am

I like my smile, but I find that I receive more compliments about my teeth. I just go with it.

120 Lauren June 16, 2010 at 10:42 am

I love my smile because my braces are making my teeth so straight and beauutiful!

121 Tasha June 16, 2010 at 10:45 am

I’ve always loved to smile, maybe because I giggle a lot. But I have dimples, and they add to a great smile =)

122 Allison W. June 16, 2010 at 10:45 am

I’m always complimented on my smile. My teeth aren’t perfectly straight, but they are very white and they look pretty good for never having braces!

123 Alisha June 16, 2010 at 10:45 am

I have a space between my two front teeth that even braces for 3 years in HIgh school could not fix, my dentist told me I would haev to get a permenant brace to fix this. I figure, If Madonna can rock the tooth space then so can I πŸ˜›

124 jlbolf80 June 16, 2010 at 10:46 am

I also like my smile because it cost my grandfather a lot of money to get them this way haha. I better love it lol.

125 Antoinette Church June 16, 2010 at 10:47 am

After wearing braces from 17-21 I love my smile!!

126 Jocelyn June 16, 2010 at 10:48 am

I spent 5 years with braces on! My smile is still not PERFECT..but I love it, just the way it is πŸ˜‰

127 gavrielski June 16, 2010 at 10:49 am

After not one but TWO sets of braces growing up, I have a straight set of teeth and a smile that is uniquely me! Thanks for the opportunity for this great giveaway! πŸ™‚

128 Alisha June 16, 2010 at 10:51 am

I have a space between my two front teeth that even braces didn’t fix. My dentist told me that I would need a permenant brace to fix this. I figure if Madonna can rock a tooth space then why can’t I? Lol

129 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 10:55 am

My smile was one of the few things I got compliments on when I was upwards of 240lbs. Now that I am over 100lbs lighter I still get compliments on it. I think it has to do with my natural internal beauty coming through in laughter, happiness and positive thoughts.

130 lauren l. June 16, 2010 at 10:58 am

I love my smile because it is a lot like my older sister’s – we totally look more like sisters when we’re smiling than when we’re not – so why not keep smiling!

131 Danielle C. June 16, 2010 at 11:00 am

When I was younger the Dentist would always compliment me on my smile, I didn’t like it so I thought they just said that to everyone. As I got older I continued to dislike my smile (for reasons I can’t understand to this day)…one day I just looked in the mirror and liked my smile. This was around the time that I stopped comparing my body/self to other women and started to gain confidence in myself. I was blessed with, strong, healthy teeth and love taking good care of them. πŸ™‚

132 Erin June 16, 2010 at 11:01 am

I love that my front teeth are so straight and I even love the laugh lines that are starting to form when I smile.

I also love the idea of adding preserves to plain yogurt. What a great idea!

133 Margaret June 16, 2010 at 11:02 am

I love that I have a big smile that shows off all my teeth! You’ll never see a smile cross my mouth that doesn’t show them off πŸ˜€

134 Stephanie June 16, 2010 at 11:02 am

My teeth were an expensive bunch to straighten, but they are beautiful!

135 Dani June 16, 2010 at 11:03 am

My teeth are naturally straight, without the help of braces/retainers/invisaligns/ etc. I love them and I get compliments all the time. My parents loved the money they saved on orthodontists, and I loved never having to worry about my teeth during those awkward teenage years when everyone else did!!

136 Risa June 16, 2010 at 11:05 am

I love my slightly crooked teeth! πŸ™‚

137 cadyk June 16, 2010 at 11:06 am

I love my smile, and it’s far from perfect. I have been to the orthodontist, who says that my front tooth that’s slightly crooked can be easily fixed with invisalign, but I just don’t see the point. If I fix that one little tooth, then my smile would be just like everyone else. I guess it’s sort of like your chip, it feels like such a part of me, and sometimes I am insecure about it, but I spent most of my life trying to be comfortable in my own skin, and this little crooked tooth is a part of that πŸ™‚

138 Madeline - Greens and Jeans June 16, 2010 at 11:06 am

Like you I have a chipped tooth and I definitely rock it! I would love a new electric toothbrush! I’ve been doing a whole lot of coffee drinking these days and my teeth could sure use a brightening!

139 Julia June 16, 2010 at 11:06 am

I love that my teeth are straight! Most of my family had to visit the orthodontist at some point, so I feel very lucky that I didn’t have to.

140 Therese June 16, 2010 at 11:07 am

I went to a family reunion this weekend in a small town, and I was embarassed to see how many of my middle-aged distant relatives have already lost teeth and appear to have terrible dental hygeine! I’m happy that I brush regularly and I’m getting back into flossing…

141 jennifer June 16, 2010 at 11:10 am

i’m very smiley by nature, i almost can’t help it! i like it though because it’s one of the first things people notice about me. plus, it’s often contagious!

142 Jaala June 16, 2010 at 11:11 am

Smiling is contagious, and I love it!! I wear my smile proud.

143 The Linz June 16, 2010 at 11:12 am

I love my smile because when I look at pictures of myself and my mom I realize that I have her smile. So it always makes me think of her!

144 Maddie June 16, 2010 at 11:13 am

I love my smile, because even though I’m 24 years old…I STILL wear my retainers every night when I go to bed, geekiness and all, it makes me, me!

145 Sara June 16, 2010 at 11:13 am

Braces worked!

146 JP June 16, 2010 at 11:14 am

I have a small gap and they aren’t really white, but I still love my teeth…and smile!

147 Lauren @ Eat, Drink, and Be Hopeful June 16, 2010 at 11:16 am

You always have such cool stuff to giveaway! I had the worst teeth when I was younger. I’m talking braces for 4 years, head gear, retainers, you name it…I had it. But now I love how my teeth turned out. I use the crest white strips and still wear my retainer to this day. My smile and teeth are actually one of my favorite parts of me. I would love this toothbrush to keep them healthy!

148 jenna June 16, 2010 at 11:16 am

I love my smile because it is just mine. Because of genetics, I was born with out two bottom molars and I now have two fake teeth (you can not tell at all). A great tidbit for ice breaker games πŸ™‚

149 sonia June 16, 2010 at 11:20 am

i love my smile, after getting braces and going through all that pain0 i smile constantly and the bf says it makes me look like a little kid who just saw cake πŸ™‚

150 Jacqui June 16, 2010 at 11:21 am

i love my smile because it is straight and i did not need braces. score! the only problem is i have weak teeth because most of my molars have either fillings or crowns! i have a flossing addiction as well! πŸ™‚ Thanks.

151 sarah June 16, 2010 at 11:21 am

i love my smile because despite filling my teenage years with soda, i still dont have cavities πŸ™‚ thank you teeth!

152 Katy(The Balanced Foodie) June 16, 2010 at 11:22 am

People have always been shocked when they find out I’ve never had braces. I never thought they were exceptionally straight but I guess I was blessed with straight teeth? πŸ™‚

153 jds June 16, 2010 at 11:23 am

i love… that my years of braces paid off!

154 Sarah for Real June 16, 2010 at 11:24 am

Yes I did know that electric toothbrushes clean your mouth better because I’ve been using an Oral-B for about 4 years now. I’m totally a bad flosser but my dentist doesn’t seem to notice and I chalk that up to this toothbrush πŸ˜€

BUT I’m terrible about deep cleaning the power handle part (I DO change the brush every few months) and the charger so after 4 years it’s getting a little bit of scuzzy build up… gross I know. Crazy that I was just thinking about purchasing a new shiny one! I hope I win!

155 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 11:25 am

I love my smile! So noticeable in pictures how my face brightens when I smile… so simple, but big impact!

156 Marion June 16, 2010 at 11:25 am

I have a big smile that was hard to get used to…but now I love it. It shows when I am genuinely happy and letting out my (kind of) loud laugh!

157 Claire June 16, 2010 at 11:28 am

I’ve always been a little embarrassed by my teeth, because I think my two front one are a little too bit. When I graduated from high school, however, I was the runner-up for the superlative “best smile.” I was totally taken aback – and so flattered! Now, I realize that the unique qualities of my smile make it was it is!

158 Dynamics June 16, 2010 at 11:30 am

I like smiling at people…My smiling at them makes them smile.

159 Nekeisha June 16, 2010 at 11:30 am

My bottom teeth are all perfect except for one that is just a little bit crooked and I am proud that I did it myself. When I was younger and the original (baby) tooth was loose I used to take my tongue and move it around until it fell out. Unfortunately/fortunately when the new one was starting to come out I couldn’t get out of the habit, my tongue used to play in the empty space and then on the new fledgeling which affected it’s development so I pushed the tooth into it current position. It would be great to brighten my quirky smile.

160 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 11:30 am

A mentor of mine told me that I have “bright eyes and a warm smile, and will go on to do great things.” Whenever his words pop into my head, I smile even more and am forever grateful for such a kind and motivating compliment.

161 Quirky Jessi June 16, 2010 at 11:32 am

I have a bottom tooth that is slightly behind my other teeth and it’s always bothered me looks-wise, but it comes with a great story of my grandma insisting I spend the night with them when I was little so that she could pull out my wiggly tooth for me. It wasn’t ready to be pulled yet (wiggly because I bit down wrong on an apple) and grew in after others had fallen out naturally, leaving the bottom row less than perfect. But oh my god, she was so excited to help me with that loose tooth!! <3

162 Tracy June 16, 2010 at 11:33 am

love my mouth! I’m 31 and cavity free!!!!!!!

163 Karla June 16, 2010 at 11:34 am

I remember one time in middle school, a boy told me that I had “big teeth like a horse”. That comment has stayed with me for years. I am now 29 years old, and while many people have told me that I have a “beautiful smile” over the years, that one comment has haunted me. Three years ago, I met the man of my dreams and I now smile more than ever…sometimes even in my sleep I think :o) So, I’ve decided to embrace my “big” smile and show the world how happy I am!

164 Chinye June 16, 2010 at 11:34 am

I love my smile because it really does make other people happy once I smile. Never knew how much smiling and having a friendly attitude can change people’s whole day!

165 Lizzy June 16, 2010 at 11:36 am

I love that I only have one dimple in my smile. I think it makes me unique and different. My whole family has two dimples, but I feel I got lucky with having just the one!

166 Andrea June 16, 2010 at 11:37 am

I love my smile because even though it’s huge and sometimes looks awkward in pictures, it’s me and Im always told it can light up a room!

167 rae June 16, 2010 at 11:38 am

My smile could use some work, but whenever it comes through, its true happiness, and thats all that matters!!

168 Kelly June 16, 2010 at 11:39 am

The one physical trait my sister and I share is our smile and I love that! She’s a freckled, blue-eyed redhead and I’m hazel-eyed dirty blonde, but those smiles match. And weirdly we have the same voice – but only on the phone.

169 Kim June 16, 2010 at 11:39 am

My teeth aren’t perfectly straight but they are part of me and I love them!

170 Emily June 16, 2010 at 11:40 am

I love my smile because smiling just makes me feel happy!

171 Elizabeth June 16, 2010 at 11:40 am

My teeth aren’t the whitest (too many acne drugs as a teenager left them kind of yellow), but they are very straight! I love that my smile is even.

172 Crystal June 16, 2010 at 11:41 am

I’m thankful that my parents invested in my teeth with braces. I always get compliments about how beautiful my teeth are!

173 krystlejohn04 June 16, 2010 at 11:42 am

I too have a chipped front tooth and I too smile as big as I did before I got the chip two years ago!

174 Katherine June 16, 2010 at 11:42 am

I love my smile! As a child I had a huge gap between my teeth, my pinky could fit in between. When I was in elementary school the gap closed by itself and I didn’t even need braces. The gap made my smile unique!

175 Kellie June 16, 2010 at 11:43 am

I have a slight gap in my front teeth. It is from not wearing my retainer in college. At first I hated it, but now it makes me who I am. Of course I admire those stars with perfect teeth, but I like that mine makes me unique.

176 Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope June 16, 2010 at 11:46 am

it is beautiful and sincere…and cheesyyyy

177 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 11:51 am

I never had braces but could have on my bottom teeth. I have just learned to live with it though..espcially since you never see them!

178 marie June 16, 2010 at 11:52 am

My smile is slightly imperfect because it’s a bit crooked and I have a gap in between my 2 front teeth, but I love it because 1) it’s unique and 2) seeing it usually makes others smile back!

179 Miranda @ Mirandasjeans June 16, 2010 at 11:53 am

I love my smile. My bottom teeth are a little crowded, my top teeth look fine, however my two front teeth were chipped so badly from a fall in my teen years that they are plaster fills. With all these little imperfections, I pride myself on having never had a cavity in my adult teeth (2 cavities in my baby teeth). Yeah to good oral hygeine!

180 Jaime June 16, 2010 at 11:54 am

I love my smile–and I’m constantly doing it! My top teeth are slightly crooked with a modest gap between my two front teeth. I used to HATE it when I was a teenager but it has really become my signature! I’ve had several issues with my teeth, but I’ve really learned to appreciate their uniqueness.

181 freshman5k June 16, 2010 at 11:55 am

After 3 1/2 tough years of braces, I have beautiful straight teeth! And I wear my retainer every night, even though the orthodontist said I can move to “every other night” but I wear it every night anyway, it’d be hard to remember if it was a “wear night” or not anyway! My brother wasn’t too smart after getting his braces off and now his are crooked again. But with all the coffee I drink, I do wish for whiter teeth πŸ™‚

182 Stephanie S. June 16, 2010 at 11:55 am

I like my smile, but as I get older I am more concerned about keeping my teeth healthy and clean. I would love this new toothbrush!

183 jenny June 16, 2010 at 11:58 am

my mom loves my smile because she says she gets flashbacks of me from when i was 2.
i think thats nice πŸ™‚

184 Kristin June 16, 2010 at 12:02 pm

I was luckily born with naturally straight teeth. Although I wished I could have braces when I was little so I could “fit in”, I’m so glad I never had to go through the pain.
I love my smile!! πŸ™‚

185 Abbey June 16, 2010 at 12:03 pm

I was voted best smile my senior year of high school. The older I get the more concerned I become about not taking the best care of my teeth. This toothbrush would be a great addition to my morning and evening routine!

186 tiffany j June 16, 2010 at 12:05 pm

my smile is the first thing i notice about myself in photos…no matter how much my weight might fluctuate I know my smile will always be the same πŸ™‚

187 Lilian June 16, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I love my smile, maybe because I had braces. I used to have a huge open bite, but thanks to the magic of braces, I have perfect teeth now. =D

188 Shannon June 16, 2010 at 12:06 pm

i’ve always loved my smile πŸ™‚ i have a tendency to brush too hard, this might be able to help!

189 Sweet Cheeks June 16, 2010 at 12:08 pm

my smile makes me shine! What a great giveaway!

190 Heather June 16, 2010 at 12:11 pm

My smile is almost always involuntary. It just happens; can’t stop it! I love that!

191 adriana June 16, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I am proud that my teeth are relatively nice, especially because I could not afford to go to the dentist for about 3 years! I still kept really good habits like flossing and brushing daily so it helped prevent any tooth or gum disease, which my dentist raved about when I finally went recently. Hope I win!

192 Catherine Khouri June 16, 2010 at 12:16 pm

I love my smile bc even if i’m in a grouchy mood I know just forcing it will make myself and others much happier!

193 Amanda June 16, 2010 at 12:17 pm

I dont have perfect teeth…i have a slight gap, and although Ive been told there are procedures to close it up, I havent brought myself to do it. I like it, it makes me who I am and without it my smile wouldnt be the same! And I love to smile!

194 pinkflipflops June 16, 2010 at 12:18 pm

I like that my teeth are strong and help me eat ice cream haha..

195 biz319 June 16, 2010 at 12:19 pm

My electric toothbrush actually has a clock – you are supposed to brush your teeth at least 2 minutes, and when I get to that 2 minute mark, it gives me a smiley face!

196 Amanda at Plato's Plate June 16, 2010 at 12:22 pm

I love my smile! I think it’s big and lightens the room (sometimes too much…the day I got my braces off one of my best friends told me I look like Ace Ventura! And my mother also once told me that she “was never happy with the way my smile turned out”….but I don’t care… I love it and that’s what matters! πŸ™‚ My electric Oral B toothbrush of 7 years finally died and I can’t afford a new one right now… I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this giveaway!

197 Heather June 16, 2010 at 12:25 pm

I am 23 years old and still have two baby teeth! The permanent teeth were never formed to replace them, so they were never forced out! They are really small and out of place with all my other teeth, and several dentists have told me I should have them removed and replaced, but they make my smile genuine and unique and I love it!

198 Sonja June 16, 2010 at 12:27 pm

I chipped my front tooth when I was 9…doing the limbo. Apparently I couldn’t go that low? I had it fixed πŸ™‚ I love “passing out smiles” to strangers on the street!

199 Stephanie C June 16, 2010 at 12:32 pm

I love my smile in pictures because you can honestly see how happy or excited I am.

200 sarah shep June 16, 2010 at 12:34 pm

i love how my cheeks get little wrinkle/dimples when i smile real big πŸ™‚ and i love smiling in general, because it means something positive must be happening!

201 laura June 16, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Love my smile! It took many many years to get here, but I wouldn’t change it for anything!

202 Martha June 16, 2010 at 12:35 pm

My two brothers and I all have the same smile — so it shows our family connection! Makes family photos look cute too. πŸ™‚

203 Jes June 16, 2010 at 12:39 pm

I love my smile in general… I had braces when i was younger (much needed… eeek!) so my teeth are all straight, and i love my full lips (think angelina jolie, kinda) and the tiny dimples i get when i smile… =)

204 Kimberly June 16, 2010 at 12:40 pm

I was in a go-kart crash when I was 9 and completely lost one of my K-9 teeth…I lived for a while with a gap and then over time the gap slowly disappeared as my teeth moved over. Although you can’t really tell from my teeth when looking far away, it’s an amusing story and when people actually look at my teeth to see the missing one, they can see it’s gone πŸ™‚

205 Laura June 16, 2010 at 12:40 pm

I have scarring on my two front teeth,upper, that occurred after an incident in kindergarten. People have made comments about it and how I should get cosmetic surgery, etc. but I don’t let it bother me. I am happy the way I am.

206 Karen June 16, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Even though my teeth are a little wonky and I’ve wanted them fixed for years, I just don’t ever seem to do anything about it! I think it’s because secretly I feel like my wonky teeth are part of my personality and I don’t know who I’d be if they were all straight and perfect. Then again, I also feel this way when I get my normally curly hair straightened! It’s just not ME!!

207 Donna June 16, 2010 at 12:47 pm

We could never afford braces growing up, but I’m thinking of giving it a go in the next few years. The problem is, I have a huge fear of the dentist! The only positive thing I can think of about my smile is I always have kicka$$ lipstick on πŸ™‚

208 Jillian June 16, 2010 at 12:54 pm

Thanks to braces back when I was in middle school, I truly love my smile! I actually think it is one of my best features!! My teeth are nice and straight and my dentist always said they were a nice shape…whatever that means! haha.

209 Erin June 16, 2010 at 12:56 pm

My teeth have always been spaced rather far apart. However, they’re not crooked or inhibiting each other in any way, so as a child I never had braces. I have thought about getting some of the new invisalign type braces as an adult, but have instead decided to embrace my gaps πŸ™‚

Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity!

210 Amy H June 16, 2010 at 12:59 pm

I love my smile because it shows off unique teeth that are shaped exactly like my mother’s and father’s teeth–the top are just like my dad’s and te bottom, like my mom’s. They are not perfect, but I do love them!

211 Shauna June 16, 2010 at 1:00 pm

My teeth are straight, and no, not naturally–I’ve had braces twice! Once in fifth grade to fix a gap between my two front teeth, and again in tenth grade to (a) fix the tooth that grew in crooked because of the first round of braces, because I was only ten so not all my teeth had grown in yet, and (b) to fix that same gap, again! ‘Twas an annoying experience at the time, but I’m happy about my teeth now. I love my smile.

Thanks for the giveaway!

212 Holly M. June 16, 2010 at 1:00 pm

I love my permanent retainer. I hated my mom for putting it on me when I was 12 but now being 24 I can appreciate my straight teeth! I can hardly noticed it!

213 midgetkeeper June 16, 2010 at 1:01 pm

What I love most about my smile is the dimples I get when I do smile πŸ™‚

214 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 1:01 pm

I love my smile because it is a good tool to be kind to others!

215 Crissy June 16, 2010 at 1:05 pm

I have been told that my smile brightens up other people’s day and that alone makes me feel happy about it. They aren’t perfectly straight teeth but I definitely love my smile.

216 Mary Beth June 16, 2010 at 1:06 pm

I love my smile because it fills up my face!

217 Lauren June 16, 2010 at 1:06 pm

Even though my teeth are prone to cavities I love my smile and the shapes of my teeth!

218 Bianca June 16, 2010 at 1:07 pm

I have a big gap between my two front teeth, but all of my other teeth are perfectly straight. When I was a child I always hated the gap and wished I could get braces. Now I love the gap because it gives me a signature smile.

219 Melissa Cari June 16, 2010 at 1:08 pm

I love my smile because its capable of making other people smile. I know, cheesy…but smiles are definitely contagious πŸ™‚

220 Robin June 16, 2010 at 1:08 pm

I love my smile because my mom and I have the same smile and she is my bestie!

221 Heather @ Junk Food Break Up June 16, 2010 at 1:15 pm

I used to be really self conscious about my smile, and begged my Mom for braces to fix an overbite and some overcrowding in my mouth.

Now I love my smile and try to do it as often as possible.

I have one tooth that still has a slightly jagged edge on the bottom but it gives me a little character!

222 Britton June 16, 2010 at 1:18 pm

My favorite part of my smile is the chip in my front bottom tooth. It’s from the last fist fight that my brother and I had, which was 11 years ago. It was the day after I got my braces on and it’s just too funny to fill in.

223 Krissy June 16, 2010 at 1:19 pm

I love my smile because I love the laughter that usually comes with it!

224 junghwa June 16, 2010 at 1:23 pm

i love how smiles can brighten other people as well!

225 21mph June 16, 2010 at 1:24 pm

I have really big teeth, and when they came in as a first grader… I got made fun of so much. But now that I’ve grown into them a little more (they’re still bigger than average lol) my big teeth are the feature everyone always compliments me on. Also, one of my front teeth glows in a blacklight!!! I broke it at lacrosse practice 4 years ago and the stuff they used to reform my tooth glows. You would think they would have thought that through more…

226 Lea June 16, 2010 at 1:25 pm

once upon a time i had beautiful straight teeth…then my wisdom tooth reared its ugly head…oh wells it is what it is.

cleaner teeth using less muscle…sounds great to me.

227 kayla June 16, 2010 at 1:27 pm

I had years of orthodontic work as a teenager and as a result my smile is nice and straight and even now – even so many years after getting the braces off. It makes me happy.

228 jamie June 16, 2010 at 1:33 pm

I have dimples galore! I also went through two years of braces at the age of 25, so I now have the smile I always wanted πŸ™‚

229 stacey June 16, 2010 at 1:34 pm

I get compliments on my smile quite often. love my smile and teeth! (Thanks mom and dad for the braces!) πŸ™‚

230 Lindsay June 16, 2010 at 1:35 pm

I love my smile because after having 4 teeth pulled (my mouth wasn’t big enough to hold the normal amount), 4 years of braces and 0 years of retainer (oops) and a tongue ring that pushed down my jaw and gums, people still tell me that they love seeing my smile.

231 Michele June 16, 2010 at 1:36 pm

I had many years of braces and 2 oral surgeries as a teenager and now can say I love my smile. πŸ™‚

232 Rachel A June 16, 2010 at 1:36 pm

I love my smile. My mom used to tell me I have a smile that could light up a room. Of course, she was biased, but I do have fairly straight teeth and nice lips.

233 Silvia June 16, 2010 at 1:41 pm

My smile translates to the world how enthusiastic I am about life.

234 Cristin June 16, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Great giveaway!

I have a crooked bottom tooth even though I had braces and I sorta love it!

235 Deirdre June 16, 2010 at 1:46 pm

My smile is unique and always genuine!

Great giveaway!

236 Becky @ flybynyght June 16, 2010 at 1:47 pm

I have crooked eyeteeth…and well, it’s just me! I love to smile with a big cheesy smile where all my teeth show…so a good toothbrush is VERY important!

237 Liz June 16, 2010 at 1:48 pm

Even though I had braces twice, my two front teeth slightly overlap. I like to think it adds character πŸ˜‰

238 Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) June 16, 2010 at 1:50 pm

When I was younger, I had a huge gap between my two front teeth. I hated it and had surgery/a retainer to fix it. But now I sort of love laughing at old pictures with the gap. It was hilarious and kind of endearing.

I have a tiny chip on one of my front teeth too. I’m getting used to it. I’d love to win this giveaway! I need whiter teeth asap!

239 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 1:52 pm

When I was little my lovely older brother swung a swing at my face and my left front tooth cracked in half. I had it bonded so I wouldn’t look ridiculous but it’s still slightly less than perfect but it makes my smile unique!

240 Jen O June 16, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I’ve never had a cavity and am pretty proud of that! I also have one dimple that I get lots of compliments on. πŸ™‚

241 Cat June 16, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I have a chipped front tooth as well. It’s from when I was a kid, & I kept trying to tickle my sister’s feet. She hated people touching her feet so I was just being annoying. πŸ™‚ Anyways, at one point she kicked me deservingly in the mouth chipping an incisor. I’ve always thought about getting it fixed, but my sister & I still laugh to this day about it so why fix it when I can laugh about it!

242 Maureen June 16, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I have a crooked smile! You can see it even in pictures of me as a baby. Perfect is boring!

243 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 1:56 pm

After 3 years of wearing braces when I was younger, I love my smile because it lights up the room every time I choose to allow it to!

244 Rachael June 16, 2010 at 1:59 pm

A smile can set the mood of a room. I’m home with my 18-month old son and try to spend a good part of the day smiling. I find that my smile makes him smile more, and that in turn, makes me smile more! A smile is a powerful thing!

245 Katie B. June 16, 2010 at 2:00 pm

I love that my whole face smiles with my mouth!

246 Jen June 16, 2010 at 2:01 pm

I love my bow-shaped mouth!

247 Laura M June 16, 2010 at 2:02 pm

I love that even strangers compliment me on the fact that I’m always smiling. At least I think that’s a compliment!

248 Catherine June 16, 2010 at 2:02 pm

I’ve had to have oral surgery twice and… on top of that…. had braces for four years. So, after all that time and energy… I’m pretty proud to have nice, straight teeth πŸ™‚

249 Erin June 16, 2010 at 2:04 pm

I love that my smile (or anyone’s smile for that matter) is the best accessory one can have. You can have a super bad hair day, just out of the gym sweaty clothes on, or just feel like you’re not looking your finest and a smile makes all of that irrelevant. Because of this I have to smile in every picture…even my driver’s license/passport, etc. Who wants to look at someone frowning anyway?

250 lowandbhold June 16, 2010 at 2:04 pm

My front two teeth are longer than the rest of my teeth, I used to be really self confident about it, but now I think it’s endearing.

251 Carrie H June 16, 2010 at 2:04 pm

I love that the beginning of a good laugh is my smile, for me anyway!

252 Cellabella June 16, 2010 at 2:05 pm

I’ve always been a bit embarrassed by my huge dimples and round face, but people have told me that I have a smile that lights up a room, so I guess those attributes are pretty good!

253 Stephanie June 16, 2010 at 2:06 pm

I was one of the lucky ones to never have braces – although when I was a tween and all my friends had braces, I begged my parents. Luckily they never gave in to that nonsense! πŸ™‚

254 Laura S. June 16, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I don’t smile that much, so when I do it really means something πŸ™‚

255 Katie June 16, 2010 at 2:09 pm

I have big teeth, which makes for a big smile πŸ™‚

256 Tami June 16, 2010 at 2:09 pm

after 5 long years with braces, I LOVE my teeth. people always say I have a nice smile!!!

257 ari June 16, 2010 at 2:18 pm

my periodontist keeps telling me to buy one of those!

258 Don June 16, 2010 at 2:20 pm

I have big teeth that means a great ol’ smile!

259 Carol June 16, 2010 at 2:21 pm

My many years of braces gives me a flawless smile

260 J.L. June 16, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I have a chipped tooth too and love it for the character (and story) it gives to me

261 Marcie June 16, 2010 at 2:22 pm

I am very Letterman about my smile, I have a gap between my two fronts and I love to smile and show it off πŸ™‚

262 Nadine June 16, 2010 at 2:22 pm

When I was little and still had my baby teeth I fell on the coffee table, which when my adult teeth grew in the fall left me with a yellow scar on my front tooth. But I embrace my smile everyday, and because of that confidence I always get compliments (altho i think my dimple might help as well) πŸ™‚

263 Bill June 16, 2010 at 2:23 pm

I love showing off my pearly whites

264 Beth June 16, 2010 at 2:23 pm

OMG, would love to win this brush, looks amazing, I am shy about my smile but I think a great smile is infectious

265 Carol June 16, 2010 at 2:24 pm

Awesome giveaway, love to smile!

266 Noel June 16, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I have a space on my lower teeth but you can’t tell when I smile!!! Plus, it’s easy for flossing, LOL

267 Kristen June 16, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Although I’ve never worn braces or had extensive dental work, I love my big (albeit slightly imperfect) smile!

268 Clare June 16, 2010 at 2:34 pm

After YEARS of orthodontist visits, my teeth are straight and beautiful!

269 Jenny June 16, 2010 at 2:36 pm

My teeth are slightly crooked still even after years with braces. I smile big anyway though, a smile is always better than a frown!

270 Sarah R June 16, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Like my dad, I still have one of my baby teeth (he still has 3!). Every time I go to the dentist, they point it out and it’s just a little reminder of my daddy πŸ™‚

271 Brittney June 16, 2010 at 2:40 pm

I’ve never had a cavity and actually like getting my teeth professionally cleaned at the dentist πŸ™‚ I had years of orthodontics- braces, retainers, lip bumpers, palate stretchers (like a torture device!), so I think I earned my smile for sure!

272 learningtocookeatandenjoydeliciousfood June 16, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I love my smile and I am so greatful for my teeth, because they had to deal with the aftermath of an eating disorder and they have stayed strong all through that time. Now that I am in recovery my teeth are thanking me and I smile bigger and better these days!! πŸ™‚

273 kelly June 16, 2010 at 2:49 pm

I have a small gap between my bottom teeth from where I had an extra tooth pulled. I like that I have a story and have no plans to fix it.

274 Brenda June 16, 2010 at 2:49 pm

I would also love to win this brush, it sounds amazing! I had dental restoration after a car accident many years ago and I was fortunate enough that the insurance paid for all the work and I was very pleased with the results.

275 Emily June 16, 2010 at 2:57 pm

I love my teeth! I only had braces for 9 months (I always compare this to my poor sister’s 3 years) and only one wisdom tooth and they are white for the amount of coffee/tea/wine and so on that I drink!

276 Sharon June 16, 2010 at 2:58 pm

I love my smile because it’s unique! My friend once told me that I couldn’t possibly smile any bigger and that anytime he saw me I was smiling! I would love the toothbrush because I’ve heard a lot about those πŸ™‚

277 Amanda June 16, 2010 at 3:00 pm

I love to smile, because smiling at someone can brighten their day, when they are having a bad day. My husband says my smile is my best feature!

278 Amanda June 16, 2010 at 3:01 pm

I wore braces for five long years and now I have almost perfectly straight teeth!! ( I didn’t wear my retainers so my bottom teeth moved a little) I was patient in wearing the braces because I knew the outcome would be well worth it :)!!

279 Sarah D. June 16, 2010 at 3:02 pm

I like my smile and get complimented on it quite often. Am I allowed to brag that I am still cavity free at 29? I could still use a fancy toothbrush. πŸ™‚

280 Adena June 16, 2010 at 3:08 pm

I have teeth that could use a new toothbrush. My smile is the first thing people see when they meet me and a cleaner, healthier smile is always a prettier smile. πŸ™‚

281 Katie June 16, 2010 at 3:08 pm

I always get comments on how straight my teeth are, and I’ve never had braces! Everyone just assumes I have πŸ™‚

282 andrea June 16, 2010 at 3:12 pm

I like my smile a lot but a new tooth brush would sure make my smile happier and brighter!

283 Serena June 16, 2010 at 3:19 pm

I love my smile because it’s not perfect but my husband loves it anyway. I’d love to get that toothbrush for my husband – he’s got weaker enamel / gum issues and our dentist has highly recommended that he get an electric toothbrush.

284 Aimee June 16, 2010 at 3:19 pm

I have always had issues with my teeth. I had braces before most when I was in 5th grade. I’ve had to have fillings preventatively because I am prone to cavities despite eating properly and taking care of my teeth. I had a root canal in college. When I was going through the screening process for Peace Corps the dental screening discovered that the root canal was not done properly and I had to undergo periodontal surgery before I could leave for my assignment. I spent countless dollars because I had no dental insurance. The procedure had to be done in parts and about halfway into it the dentist informed me that it would be a few more months before everything was completed. I had to forego my Peace Corps invitation to Armenia. When it was all finished I called Peace Corps and hoped for an assignment ASAP. I was sent to a wonderful country a few months later and that is where I met my husband. We have been happily married for 9 years and he loves my smile!

285 Claire June 16, 2010 at 3:22 pm

My coworker told me that when I smile,I glow and it brightens up the room.Let me tell you,It make my week(it was a stressful one,too):-)cc

286 Kyle June 16, 2010 at 3:22 pm

I love my smile because it’s been through A LOT. Childhood accidents, surgeries, braces – but they still look good and serve the greater purpose of bringing happiness to others with a simple smile πŸ™‚

(and they help my chew all the amazing food I eat haha)

287 L.A. Daze June 16, 2010 at 3:28 pm

I love my smile now that my teeth are straight again! I wore braces for the longest time. It all paid off πŸ™‚

288 Suyapa June 16, 2010 at 3:35 pm

I love my smile because of both my dimples πŸ˜€

289 Sara B. June 16, 2010 at 3:36 pm

I love my smile because even when I’m down smiling makes me feel better. =)

290 Kristie June 16, 2010 at 3:36 pm

I’ve got a lot of different smiles – the picture smile, polite smile, good-to-see-you smile, but the one that makes me happiest is my goofy smile. I smile as big as I can and it scrunches up my whole face. It not only makes me crack up but whoever is around me as well :).

291 cookingincambridge June 16, 2010 at 3:47 pm

I like my smile because one tooth is slightly longer than the other, and it’s a bit goofy

292 Anne W Falk June 16, 2010 at 3:50 pm

I like my teeth because when I use them to smile, they make others smile too. Hey, and I have a small chip on the very bottom of my front tooth too! I got it when I was eating a peach and got too close to the pit. My dentist says he can fix it too but I think it makes my smile even better. Thanks for letting me try to win that tooth brush. If it helps whiten my Diet Coke smile then Hurrah!

293 Jenna June 16, 2010 at 4:00 pm

i just went to the dentist last week and they insisted I should be in a text book for having such healthy teeth!! πŸ™‚ thanks mom and dad for good genes! πŸ™‚

your yogurt bowl looks so fresh and colorful!

294 Emily Schlothan June 16, 2010 at 4:03 pm

I definitely didn’t like my smile when I was younger, but over the years I’ve come to love it:

I smile crooked – one side of my face lifts up before the other half does.
My teeth are straight and I’ve never had braces!
I give a big, toothy smile and my lips disappear when I do. This isn’t a bad thing! Everyone in my family has the same quirk.

My smile is who I am and it connects me with my family. Can you ask for more?

295 heatherfeather June 16, 2010 at 4:10 pm

My smile is cavity free!!!!

296 Ashley June 16, 2010 at 4:12 pm

AFTER painful braces…I have straight and beautiful teeth. Which my Grandma still calls years later my “new teeth”. I’m 22 and had braces off when I was like 16, haha

297 Lindsey June 16, 2010 at 4:14 pm

I love my winning smile because it took me over 4 years to get it! (aka braces)

Would love to win this!

298 Grace June 16, 2010 at 4:16 pm

I appreciate my smile so much more since I paid for braces myself in high school!

299 Nancy June 16, 2010 at 4:17 pm

My teeth are very straight and I’ve never had braces!! Probably didn’t save a whole lot of money though because my straight teeth are cavity prone. Win some, lose some πŸ™‚

300 kellyr84 June 16, 2010 at 4:32 pm

I love my smile mainly because I have never had to have dental or orthodontia! I’m so drawn to teeth, they are generally the first thing I notice about someone. I’m constantly examining mine to make sure they are ok.

301 Jenny June 16, 2010 at 4:35 pm

When I was younger, I thought my two front teeth were huge! I’ve to come to realize that they’re perfect for my smile!

302 Ellen June 16, 2010 at 4:36 pm

my teeth are straight! thank you, braces πŸ™‚

303 Katrina June 16, 2010 at 4:38 pm

I’m missing one (out of four) of my front bottom teeth. I like it because it’s unusual! You don’t notice it unless I point it out. Which, you know, I do…

304 Leslee Sitton June 16, 2010 at 4:39 pm

My husband and I just went to the dentist for the first time in WAY too long and had to have so much work done. I need this toothbrush to help me take better care of my teeth:) I have a nice and straight, pretty smile from lots of dental work over the years.

305 Jessica T. June 16, 2010 at 5:06 pm

After much needed braces, I love my smile! Although I still have small stains from wearing braces for years, I am ALWAYS smiling. Smiles are contagious πŸ™‚

306 faith June 16, 2010 at 5:08 pm

i need to take better care of my teefers since i dont have dental insurance and my parents invested in braces as a teen! a smile takes many less muscles than a frown! this would be awesome!

307 Paula June 16, 2010 at 5:12 pm

I love my smile… it might be my favorite physical feature about myself. I also think that everyone looks best when they’re smiling!!

308 Ashley June 16, 2010 at 5:13 pm

I was always ashamed of my teeth because they were pretty crooked and was always embarassed to smile. My parents got me braces and I still remember the day I got them off, it felt amazing and I havent been able to stop smiling since. I have always wanted to try an electric toothbrush but they can be kind of spendy. This would be awesome to have!!!

309 Danielle June 16, 2010 at 5:19 pm

I love my smile with its small gaps despite having braces twice!

310 Cassie June 16, 2010 at 5:26 pm

I have two sisters.. both with perfectly straight gorgeous teeth! Mine on the other hand are not. My two front teeth stick out and are bigger than the rest… kind of like bugs bunny. In fact, kids called me that growing up. I hated my smile for so many years. But when I reached high school my mom asked if I wanted braces to fix the problem… and I shocked myself when my answer was no! I didn’t want my bugs bunny teeth to go away! Could it be I actually liked them? I just feel they are “who” I am… and now I love them and smile with pride. When I started teaching about 10 months ago one of my students said “Your funny like a bunny cause of your teeth”. And it brought me right back to grade school… this time though I didn’t get sad! I smiled bigger and told her we all should be proud of our unique smiles πŸ™‚

311 Stefanie June 16, 2010 at 5:33 pm

Growing up I always had a gap between my two front teeth, they grew together and now I love my smile! A smile a day keeps the doctor away πŸ™‚

312 monika June 16, 2010 at 5:39 pm

My smile comes from the heart and that makes it bright enough for me!

313 Krista June 16, 2010 at 6:00 pm

I am now just starting to love my smile…I had metal braces as a kid and thought retainers were overrated and gave up on wearing it after a year well 10 years later i was really regretting it and decided to give invisilign a try. I loved it but not the $5000 bill that im still paying for 2 years later!! haha but im trying to do my best to keep my smilie looking good and would love to try an electric toothbrush to help!

314 petersenplace June 16, 2010 at 6:03 pm

I do love my smile, I smile all the time. I did not need braces, but wanted perfect teeth in high school so I decided to get them my junior year and I only had them on for 8 months – I got my perfect teeth πŸ™‚

315 Amanda June 16, 2010 at 6:03 pm

I used to hate my smile too, then when I got my braces off, I started to love it! I was also told once by someone that my smile brightens up their day :-).

316 Melissa June 16, 2010 at 6:07 pm

My teeth might be a little on the big side, but I always get compliments on them thanks to wearing braces and retainers when I was younger. Now I love to smile! =D

317 Valentina June 16, 2010 at 6:10 pm

I have very large teeth…but they suit my personality and that helps my teeth shine.

318 Katie June 16, 2010 at 6:20 pm

For the first 18 years of my life I hated smiling. I had bad teeth and then braces for 2.5 years. Once those bad boys came off I felt so much more confident about smiling bright around anyone and everyone!

319 MonicaW June 16, 2010 at 6:24 pm

I have a small upper lip but it shows off my pearly whites more πŸ™‚

320 Kate June 16, 2010 at 6:27 pm

Getting braces as a kid under 12 made me really self conscious but I appreciated that when I entered high school and didn’t have any braces but perfect teeth! I love my smile now!!!

321 carapeck June 16, 2010 at 6:29 pm

I love that sometimes when I smile, I smile so big that my bottom lip covers my top teeth and it looks like I am all gums! My old roomate even calls me ‘Gums’. πŸ™‚

322 Chelsea June 16, 2010 at 6:29 pm

I like my smile because it is unique to me!

323 Amanda (Food Loving Nutritionist) June 16, 2010 at 6:29 pm

I like my smile because it can brighten up the residents day at the nursing home that I work at. Sometimes, that’s all it takes!

324 Kim June 16, 2010 at 6:35 pm

I love my smile because it makes people around me smile too πŸ™‚

325 Lauren85 June 16, 2010 at 6:38 pm

My mom always tells me that my smile lights up a room. I had braces twice and my teeth still aren’t perfect — but I always believed what my mom told me and that helped me overcome being self-conscious.

326 amy June 16, 2010 at 6:40 pm

I would love, love an electric toothbrush!!

327 Susan June 16, 2010 at 6:44 pm

I love my smile because it makes other people smile πŸ™‚

328 Stephanie June 16, 2010 at 6:48 pm

Hi!
My teeth are not perfect, but I’ve got great lips to compensate!
Crossing my fingers to win that toothbrush!
Stephanie

329 Nicole P June 16, 2010 at 6:48 pm

I love my smile because I went through sooo many years of braces for it!

330 Katie June 16, 2010 at 6:49 pm

I love my smile because it is crooked, it that is so… me.

331 steph June 16, 2010 at 6:50 pm

my teeth are straight after years of orthodontic work and because of that, my smile is probably one of my better features!

332 MaryZ June 16, 2010 at 6:52 pm

I love my smile…there is nothing perfect about it, but its me! I could use some whitening though!

333 Joanna June 16, 2010 at 7:01 pm

I like my smile because it’s unique. I had a huge gap in my front teeth as a kid, and while it was mostly corrected by braces, I still have a small gap between my front teeth.

334 kat June 16, 2010 at 7:07 pm

I have a gap between my teeth that I used to loathe as a kid but now I love it. I heard Madonna paid to have her once-fixed gap put back!

335 Laura E June 16, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Thanks so much for the opportunity! I have a small gap and the tips of my two front teeth are a shade darker because I chipped them when I was little..darn scooter! But I really don’t mind these things now and I know they make me who I am!

336 Stacey K. June 16, 2010 at 7:23 pm

My teeth were permanently scarred when I was a baby but that does not stop me from smiling whenever I can!

337 Akanksha June 16, 2010 at 7:34 pm

I love the fact that I’m never truly dressed without a smile! πŸ™‚

338 Alicia June 16, 2010 at 7:34 pm

After recieving the trays to whiten my teeth from the dentist, and after several attempts to try to get that bright white smile–I noticed getting little white spots on my teeth. At first I was annoyed and made them to be bigger then they were, but eventually I just got used to it. It’s not as noticeable to other people as it is to me. The dentist says the only way I can fix them up are to get veneers, and that seems so Hollywood for me, especially since my teeth are perfectly straight (no braces/retainers, thank you πŸ˜‰ — I think I have a winning smile because I am sucking it up and dealing with it, white spots and all. Oh and by the way, I stopped using them. Starting to welcome back the yellow teeth. Welcome back! haha.

339 Anisha June 16, 2010 at 7:37 pm

I had braces during my “awkward teen years”–before that, i used to get teased for looking like bugs bunny and my overbite was so bad that i had to wear head gear along with the braces too. but now that i look back i’m glad i did it because i feel so much more confident about smiling now! my teeth could still use a good toothbrush though! πŸ™‚

340 sAm June 16, 2010 at 8:13 pm

I have FABULOUS lips to help my smile. I also have a really cute gap between my two front teeth that I like. Thanks for hosting – Oh, I hope I win!!

341 delia June 16, 2010 at 8:15 pm

my pearly whites are probably my favorite feature about me!!!

342 Kristen B June 16, 2010 at 8:21 pm

I wore braces for 4 years so I have a nice STRAIGHT smile!!!! I hated them at the time but now I can not appreciate them enough!! Great Giveaway!

343 Jennifer June 16, 2010 at 8:23 pm

One thing I can say about my teeth is that they are naturally straight. I love that with every dentist I have had they all ask if I had braces. I also, love the shocked look when I tell them I haven’t. πŸ™‚

344 Megan June 16, 2010 at 8:29 pm

My smile is a little crooked and there is a small gap between two of my teeth, but it is the physical feature I get complimented on the most without a doubt. I would love the Oral B toothbrush so I can keep it that way!

345 Ilene June 16, 2010 at 8:37 pm

I always grin wiiidellyyyy. My smiles are always 100% genuine!

346 candytocarrots June 16, 2010 at 8:42 pm

I had horrible teeth my entire life. I never smiled in any picture. They actually had to remove 12 teeth when I got braces! 12! So, it was pretty crowded in there, if you can imagine. I paid for braces on my own when I was an adult and now I smile in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE I’m in. I love my smile. It has done WONDERS for my confidence and I love my teeth now!

347 Aria June 16, 2010 at 8:54 pm

I was blessed with straight teeth and I never had to have braces so my smile is by far one of my favorite features. I would love to win this toothbrush because I’ve always wanted to try an electric one!!

348 Alisha June 16, 2010 at 9:01 pm

I have a slight gap between my two front teeth. I had it as a kid and hated it, but the dentists I saw always refused to refer me to an Orthodontist because it was so slight and my teeth were otherwise quite perfect. When my 2nd molars came in, it closed and for FIVE glorious years (12-18), I had the perfect smile I’d always wanted. Friends were envious of my perfect, straight, white, brace-free teeth… their parents made comments about how lucky my parents were to never have to pay tons of money for braces… and then I got my wisdom teeth and my perfect, gap-free smile was gone. Within 6 months of having my wisdom teeth removed, my teeth all shifted and my gap was back and slightly larger than when I was a kid. I went back and forth during my early college years about getting braces, but I eventually grew to accept it as what makes me, me.

349 Tara June 16, 2010 at 9:07 pm

My smile is beautiful because I had to get three surgeries just to get one tooth to come down (it was impacted in the back of my mouth), then wear braces for three years. Now they are straight and I would never regret the surgeries or braces!

350 Andrea June 16, 2010 at 9:09 pm

I love my smile, i guess that’s what braces 3 different times will get ya!

351 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 9:15 pm

I love that when I smile, both my bottom and top teeth show πŸ™‚

352 Shyla June 16, 2010 at 9:46 pm

I love my right dimple I have when I smile. πŸ™‚

353 Tyly June 16, 2010 at 9:48 pm

I love that my mom worked for a dentist all my life and helped create my smile! We also share a similar smile, and I love that too. πŸ™‚

354 Serena June 16, 2010 at 9:48 pm

I love my smile. I am lucky to have naturally straight teeth. I always wanted an electric toothbrush but never got around to actually buying one. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

355 Kristine June 16, 2010 at 9:49 pm

I love how strong my teeth are. Despite 4 years of bulimia (I’m in recovery now), they’re all still there. Gotta be happy about that!

356 Rachel in NC June 16, 2010 at 9:51 pm

I have huge front teeth, but I guess it makes it easier to see my smile!

357 Ryane June 16, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Any picture of me through middle school and high school features me and my closed mouth smile hiding either crooked teeth or braces. As soon as I had those babies off, I became a smiling freak. I don’t think I know what it is now to not SMILE for a picture or when I’m happy. I hate how many years I hid behind my closed lips, which really only made me look sullen or fake.

: ) : ) : )

358 Betsy S. June 16, 2010 at 10:14 pm

i love the way my smile is crooked slightly!

359 Sarah June 16, 2010 at 10:14 pm

It’s not perfect … but it’s definitely genuine πŸ™‚

360 Jessica June 16, 2010 at 10:18 pm

I love my smile because I love my teeth! I had braces for 6 years, so they’re nice and straight!

361 Melissa G June 16, 2010 at 10:24 pm

I actually have a really nice smile! My teeth are straight and the top ones are pretty white. Although they are getting more yellow from the delicious coffee I drink every day. But that’s okay, because the coffee makes me smile! πŸ™‚

362 hemp jogger June 16, 2010 at 10:31 pm

i love that my bottom teeth are a little crooked/overlapped. true, apple and corn always get stuck in there, but its nothing a little floss cant take care of. oh, and my front teeth are rather large. oh well… makes my smile beam!

363 Lisa P. June 16, 2010 at 10:32 pm

The positive aspect of my smile is that I am usually grinning with my teeth, whether I know it or not, and it either makes those around me happy or clueless as to what I am thinking about. I like both aspects! I get it from my mom–she is always smiling and it makes her glow so beautifully.

364 Natalie June 16, 2010 at 10:42 pm

after years and years of braces, I love my straight teeth and try to always smile with as many teeth showing as possible!

365 Deva (Voracious Vorilee) June 16, 2010 at 10:44 pm

I love that when I smile from laughter, my nose crinkles up.

366 Betsy June 16, 2010 at 10:45 pm

I love my smile because my dad always tells me that my eyes smile too… and 4 years of braces makes you appreciate it greatly!

367 Lindsey Wilkins June 16, 2010 at 10:46 pm

My gappy teeth when I was a child allowed room for new teeth to come in as I grew up. Because of that I never had to have braces and love my smile!

368 RacheD June 16, 2010 at 10:46 pm

I love that smiling can force you to think happy thoughts. Try it. It’s pretty hard to smile and not have happy thoughts!

369 Julie June 16, 2010 at 10:46 pm

My favourite thing about my smile is the little gap between my two front teeth. It used to be huge but as i got older my teeth grew closer together. i still love the (little) gap and never want it to grow in completely!

370 Elizabeth June 16, 2010 at 10:50 pm

I like that my front teeth are slightly crooked. Gives them character! πŸ˜‰

371 Ariel L. June 16, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Ever since I can remember I have had what my parents call “Corn Eating Teeth”. This basically means I have an over-bite and two pronounced front teeth. I don’t think I will ever let anyone fix them because when I was 12 years old I was looking through an album of my mother as a child. Guess where I get it from?! They remind me that I’m more like her then anyone else; whether I want to always admit that or not. πŸ˜‰

372 Annie June 16, 2010 at 10:56 pm

When I was in middle school, I decided I didn’t like my smile/teeth/braces. For every picture, I would smile, but not show any teeth. I later realized this made me look 10 years older and grumpy. I now proudly show off my smile! After 7+ years of orthodontics, I think it looks pretty awesome. I really like the noise my cheeks make when I give a huge smile. πŸ™‚

373 Danielle J June 16, 2010 at 11:12 pm

Despite not having perfectly straight teeth I always get compliments on my smile. Must be doing something right! πŸ˜€

374 Cara June 16, 2010 at 11:19 pm

I love that when I smile at a person who looks unhappy or stressed, it can brighten their day. A smile allows me to show that I care for all people, even people that I do not know.

375 Amy June 16, 2010 at 11:24 pm

My two front teeth are HUGE and I used to feel so self conscious about it but much like you and your chipped tooth, I’ve come to accept it and now I love them. They make my smile what it is, and I love that!

376 Jennifer @ shesafitchick June 16, 2010 at 11:29 pm

My parents couldn’t afford braces when I was younger so although my teeth are slightly crooked, I’ve never let it stop me from smiling!! πŸ™‚

377 Carolyn C. June 16, 2010 at 11:31 pm

I like my smile, and I like the fact that I have straight teeth. I know I didn’t say it when I had them, so I’ll say it now….. thanks Mom and Dad for the braces!!

378 Gina June 16, 2010 at 11:32 pm

I get comments on my beautiful smile even from strangers, so I know it’s one of my best assets

379 Liz June 16, 2010 at 11:32 pm

i love my smile because i lived with braces for 7 years to get it!!

380 kerry June 16, 2010 at 11:42 pm

Great idea!!

I love my smile because my parents saved up their hard-earned money to put me in braces!

381 Maribeth June 16, 2010 at 11:48 pm

Hi Meghann!

Honestly, my smile is my most favorite feature. Ever since I was young, my mom has always told me what a great, radiant smile I have. I actually like being in front of the camera as well as behind because just about any picture can turn out well with a real smile on your face.

I have a small gap between my two front teeth. It’s barely noticeable and I don’t mind it at all–in fact, I accept it and like it because it makes me unique. So yes, I love my open smile–gaps and all! πŸ™‚

382 Emily June 17, 2010 at 12:00 am

My smile is the best because it is always genuine! Whenever I smile, I really mean it and those around me can totally tell.

383 steph June 17, 2010 at 12:05 am

I love my smile because it is cheery! Everyone comments on me and my smile. I smile and then others smile – perfect!

384 Christina June 17, 2010 at 12:12 am

I like my smile, especially when it is genuine!!

385 Katie R June 17, 2010 at 12:26 am

I love my lips – they’re full, nicely colored, and make my smile great πŸ™‚

386 stephball June 17, 2010 at 12:31 am

I love my smile. My two front teeth are slightly different lengths, but i don’t mind- it is a part of me!

387 Kristen June 17, 2010 at 12:32 am

I think my favorite thing about my face is my smile! I have tried white strips a few times but they are too harsh for my teeth and hurt! This would be a great addition to my routine πŸ™‚

388 Yovani June 17, 2010 at 12:36 am

I like my smile and the fact that I have straight teeth. I paid for my braces through out high school because my parent’s couldn’t afford to pay for them for me.

389 Charis June 17, 2010 at 12:46 am

I love my smile because it is framed by full, pink lips and smiles just symbolize happiness!

390 erica rose June 17, 2010 at 1:37 am

My smile makes my patients smile (I’m in the medical field)! And that makes me very, very happy.

391 sassychic4ever June 17, 2010 at 1:58 am

I love that when I smile it usually inspires others to smile with me!

392 Lisa June 17, 2010 at 2:38 am

I love how my smile is contagious, even if the center of my teeth are not!

393 Angela June 17, 2010 at 2:55 am

I love my smile! My dad nicknamed me Beamer because I would wake him up with smiles like beams of sunshine! πŸ™‚

394 Dr Grisham June 17, 2010 at 4:07 am

I had disgusting breath for years. I had no friends and even family keep me at a distance.
I was flossing brushing and rinsing everyday but still had bad breath. I spent thousands on all kinds of products claiming to stop bad breath but still had bad breath. I came across a site called OralTech Labs and it gave me my first insight into my problem. After I did all the advice in the eBook it identified Post Nasal Drip as the primary issue with eating and cleaning as the oral problem.
So I was happily surprised when my brother asked the following week why my breath didn’t smell any more, I told him what I’d done he’s like thank god for that book! OralTech Labs
Now 6 months later I have my first girlfriend and worked up enough courage to tell her about what I was like just 1 year ago. She said I smelt better than any other boyfriend she’d had. Music to my ears! Think OralTech Labs

395 justjac June 17, 2010 at 4:28 am

I love how a smile really can change your mood!

396 Lauren June 17, 2010 at 6:57 am

After years of braces, many surgeries, and the worst journey of my life with wisdom teeth horror, I can honestly say that I went through so much to have the beautiful smile I have today!

397 Joy June 17, 2010 at 6:59 am

I am glad your teeth are starting to head in the direction you want them to (for some reason to me that sounds like they are marching down the street)

My favorite thing: Ummm people always tell me I have an infectious smile and I like that!

398 MorganAK June 17, 2010 at 7:22 am

I spent years spreading my jaw with headgear and a retainer with a key so all my teeth would fit in my mouth. I also had braces for about 4 years! I am happy to say in the end it was all worth it. I love my straight teeth.. and The dentist told me the other day i have some of the whitest teeth he has ever seen, naturally.. guess i cant complain!

399 Erin June 17, 2010 at 7:58 am

My boyfriend loves the little dimple I get on one of my cheeks, so I will have to say I like that about my smile πŸ™‚

400 Raya June 17, 2010 at 9:00 am

My smile really changes my face…it makes me pretty! When I’m not smiling, people always think I’m upset even though to me, it’s just my normal face! =)

401 Tobi June 17, 2010 at 10:22 am

I never had braces and my front teeth are surprisingly straight which leaves me with a fantastic smile!!

402 luckytastebuds June 17, 2010 at 10:33 am

Hi meghann!! Great giveaway!!! I bought my parents an electric toothbrush and they love it!!

P.s. i was wondering if you were able to receive the Food For Thought preserves you won a few weeks ago? I had it sent to your office and just wanted to make sure it’s safe and sound with you! πŸ™‚

403 Paige (Two Runners And A Brown Dog) June 17, 2010 at 11:46 am

I love my smile because it makes other people smile back at me!

404 destiny June 17, 2010 at 7:06 pm
