Make Erik Smile Again

Hey there, my names Erik and I have a condition called Plastoenamel. It's a condition that causes the dentin and enamel that encases your teeth to deteriorate rapidly. It started happening when I was a young teenager and it went untreated, causing my teeth to deteriorate and decay. I recently found out about this condition and also found out most of my roots are in near perfect condition and can be saved through crowns. What I also learned was that if my top teeth abcesse, it can travel into my brain and I could potentially die. 

I recently made a visit to the dentist after one of my canines fell apart in my sleep. I learned that they can save most of my teeth and want to start with a root canal on the recently broken canine and a complete build up of my teeth; canine to canine. My only problem? That procedure is going to cost an estimated $7,533.09. 

That's where this GoFundMe comes in. I initially didn't want to, but a friend convinced me to. I dont have anywhere close to this kind of money; maybe 1,500 at most. And this isn't the only surgeries I need, but is one of the most urgent. Personally, I would love to smile again. I want to have a smile I can be proud of and show off instead of constantly hiding it behind a closed mouth. I would also love to not get severe anxiety every time I think "When's the next pain coming to make me leave work?" or "I wonder if one of my teeth will chip when I cough or brush my teeth."

It was hard to make this, but I figure it was my only chance to start fixing my smile and I hope people will share this. 

So please, can you help me find my smile again?
