"Every time I look in the mirror I just smile"

“I can’t tell you the difference my new smile has made to my confidence. I really can’t stop smiling and I’m over the moon with the results.

Every time I look in the mirror I just smile. Now, I’ll happily talk to people when in the past I would have shied away. It’s made such a difference to my life. I never expected the results to be so good and I didn’t expect to feel so differently about myself”
