John Carter's front teeth and smile

First of all thank you for reading my story.

For those of you who don't know me my name is John Carter otherwise known on the playa as Jet Engine.  Back in the 90's when i was really crazy I knocked out three of my front teeth on a 12 foot half pipe at Van's skate park that used to be at the Great Mall in Millitas.

I had put caps on what bone was left and it was great for quite a few years.  Well, teeth like to move when you are not looking on their own over the years and one tooth is sticking out of my mouth.  My only option now is to start over.  I am going to try and get 3 implants in my front teeth.  It is going to cost about $2000 a tooth, which is about $6000 plus extras they like to charge, like a retainer to wear so they DONT MOVE AGAIN. 

I have decided to try to get this done before next years burning man.  I was the mayor for EBB and Glow village and i would love to do that again for everybody.  I had a great time introducing everyone to each other and i would love to do it again with a much better smile. 

I wanted to put a camping trip together at Lake Chabot this summer to thank everyone who helped as well as anyone who wanted to help but couldn't afford it and wanted to be there anyway.  I am all about all inclusive. 

I really wanted to do this by myself without asking for help but it is a little tuff.  If i come up a little short i am going to use my tax return for the rest, so this is going to happen.  I would really like to have a decent smile again!  As you can see in the picture when i have teeth i have a great smile.  At least that is what i was told. 

I really can't tell you just how thankful i will be.  I hope to see you at the camping trip and or at burning man next year either living in our village or just coming by to visit.  I will have a hug and a smile for you no matter who you are.  Thanks again!
