How can I tell my mum that I want braces again?Watch
So about a year ago, I lost my bottom retainer and one tooth has moved dramatically (it looks a lot like Sia's tooth, if you google this) and I am REALLY self conscious about it, as I can see people just staring at it when I'm talking which is really uncomfortable. I am not able to get them done again at a low price from the NHS because I have already had braces before. Therefore, I would have to go to a private orthodontist and I have done a lot of research about them in my area and the prices etc...so I know that prices vary around £2000. I would be able to pay for this myself as I have a "savings account" and I am more than willing to pay this price. But I know for a fact that my mum would completely disagree with me because it is so expensive, so how do I persuade my mum to let me pay for braces? I would be soooo much happier and more confident if my teeth were straight again, and I am getting a job in the next few months so I could pay it off. I have a dentist appointment in June so I was hopping to tell her around that time as my dentist may mention it, and possibly reassure my mum. I'm under 18 so it's not like I can do it without her permission, by law. PLEASE HELP
1) look her in the eye.
2) put on a serious face
3) pull a big cheesy grin
4) hold until she notices wonky tooth
5) et voilà!
Edit: I didn't fully read.. If you complain enough to the NHS, they may possibly pay for it..
Otherwise.. Ur fcked. Should have went back for new retainers when you could have.. They give them to you for a reason..
BTW, I'm in the straight teeth from birth crew
