Domestic Violence Victims Get Tooth Makeovers

Dentists are doing what they can to help domestic violence victims.

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is using its charity, known as Give Back a Smile Programs, to reconstruct the victims’ mouths thanks to the dentists who are volunteering their time.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1.5 million people have been abused by their partners. The abuse may result in tooth injuries, as well as mental or physical harm.

Fixing the teeth of domestic abuse victims is a way to enable them to get back self-confidence. When domestic abuse victims are unable to smile with confidence, it may adversely affect the rest of the person’s life.

The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation began in 1999 and has been helping domestic violence victims since.

abused makeovers Yes No I'm trying to contact the company that does extreme abused women makeovers. Friend told me about a show. I was severely beaten and left for dead by a stranger. I wish I could send pictures to show the difference this person has caused me. I have lost all my teeth, all my hearing in my left ear, and most of my common sense. I just want to look normal and not like the monster I see before me when I look in the mirror every day. Thank you for your time and understanding. Thank you also for just listening to me, even if you can't help.
