Teeth Insecurities

    Okay - so when I was younger, about 10 years old, I banged my two front teeth in my garden - they literally got pushed into the top of my gums and fell out when my adult teeth came through.

    Since then, I've developed and overcome bulimia, but over time, the acid had wore away at the back of my two upper front teeth, making them literally turn brown. I hate it. I have a slight overlap on them too, so the brown goes right through my teeth and it looks like I have something stuck between my teeth which people just LOVE to point out.

    With COVID, I've not been able to go to the dentist as they are only accepting emergencies.

    I know most of y'all will say ignore it and just be me, but like - it's beyond me just ignoring it - It's the only thing stopping me from making friends and getting at all close with anyone. For the past 18 months, it's not been that bad, I've just worn my facemask even when with my friendship group.

    Any advice on what I can do next - I've searched everwhere?
