You WILL have beautiful teeth, I swear!!
The other night, friends were over visiting and my middle child walked in to say hi. She's nine and in the past two years has undergone a lot of orthodontic work to correct her underbite, crossbite, and generally snaggly teeth. After she left the room, everyone commented on how beautiful her smile is now, which it is.
Her brother and sister already have or will also have mouths full of metal. This is, as you can imagine, costing us a lot of money. I don't begrudge, but I certainly feel a sense of ownership over those teeth, as in, "Don't run! You could fall and smash your teeth!" or "No, you can't have that candy apple! Do you know what it can do to your braces??" or the everpresent, "Brush your teeth after you eat!!" I haven't gotten to the point where I send them to school with a toothbrush and toothpaste, but I would love if they grow up to be neurotic about caring for their teeth, since they will collectively be worth an ocean-front Florida timeshare.
In the spirit of healthy mouths, I have three prize packs to give away from Crest and Oral-B. We're going to try something a little different with this giveaway. Instead of our winners answering a question, I will select three winners from all the entries mailed to email@example.com that include some story about either your current tooth care regimen (are you obsessive about brushing? flossing? do you hate the dentist? love her? do you dream about her? do you dream about losing your teeth?) or a story about your childhood tooth care, whether or not it includes orthodontics. I will include the winners' stories on our slice.ca Facebook page.
