Missing Front Tooth, Please Give Me My Smile Back

My Story:

I am 57 years old and married, we have one son. He is 32 and in college with a 4.0 GPA. He is a late starter due to a drug addiction. He is clean now and goes to therapy ever other week. We have had a lot of financial problems with his addiction and recovery. I am a stay at home housewife due to being in a coma from a gallstone. My husband is the only one employed with a roofing company. He works on their trucks and equipment.

My husband makes enough money to pay the monthly bills, but we don't have any savings for emergencies. We live paycheck to paycheck, week to week. I am so depressed over my front tooth missing, I don't even want to leave the house. I can't talk or smile without looking so bad I want to cry. I desperately need Modest Needs help with the cost to fix this at the dentist.

After negations he is willing to accept the lowest price possible. He will have to do a post and crown on that tooth. This is causing me much mental anguish. It is giving me very low self confidence and causing depression. The bill must be paid before they will do any of the work. Your funding and help would mean so much to me. It would give me so much confidence to be able to smile and talk to people again. You would be so surprised at how much a tooth can change someones life for the better. I could go out and try and find a part time job to help my husband pay the bills.
