A whole mouthful of years

When I was a young kid, I incurred blunt trauma to my mouth, specifically how my teeth grew in. For virtually my whole life, I have endured teeth that were a struggle to keep clean and were malformed and crooked. 

Unfortunately, my parents nor I were ever in the position to spend the considerable amount of money to correct this issue. So I have spent my formative years with half smiles and avoiding the dentist at all costs. 

I have recently been in contact with a Dental Specialist (Mill Creek Dental) and they think they can perform a miracle and give me a smile I can be proud of. It will amount to 20 replacement veneers and a retainer. Total costs are upwards of 30k, but I can do this in stages.

My hope is to have this done without taking on substantial debt, which I am inclined to do anyways. However, I thought a gofundme could help. I am an author and would love to be more in the public eye at conferences, etc. My smile sometimes holds me back.  

Anything you can do to help me on this journey to a new smile will not go unnoticed.
