People treat me differently; with more respect. They admire me more..."

"My teeth are healthier, my teeth don"t hurt anymore, my gums don't bleed anymore, I don't have any toothaches- & I have a better smile, I get complements all the time on my teeth. They are so straight and pretty. I used to hate to get my teeth cleaned because it hurt. Now I love the feeling. Your teeth feel so good. When I clean my teeth at home I feel like I am one of those toothpaste commercials because when I finish I get that sparkle 'Bling-Bling' feeling."
