A television personality who hid her teeth for six years unveiled her new smile after a $ 45,000 (£ 34,500) intervention.
Marcela Iglesias was so embarrassed that she only smirked and covered her regularly, talking about photographs.
She stated that her "small pricked teeth" were the result of barely brushing them during childhood, while she drank up to seven cans of soda a day.
After her wedding was televised on Showstopper Bride in 2013, Ms. Iglesias grinned at her smile and knew she had to do something about it.
Mrs. Iglesias, who presents herself as the real human doll, longed for the catchy smile of Hollywood actress Julia Roberts.
She visited Dr Kambiz Kamanger of Agoura Advanced Dentistry who spent a month surgeries, leaving Mrs. Iglesias with a smile that "makes her look younger".
Mrs. Iglesias of California had her initials engraved on her false teeth to celebrate what she had defeated.

Ms. Iglesias, nicknamed the "Queen of Cosmetic Procedures" and whose age is not clear, said: "I made the decision that 2019 is the year I want to new smile.
"I wanted that fat Julia Roberts smile. I also admire Pauly D from Jersey Shore and Kourtney Kardashian. Whenever they smile on TV, I smile with them.
"We used to call myself" shrimp "teeth but now I have big, strong teeth. My whole family was shocked, it changed my whole face and rejuvenated me.
What are the crowns?
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits on the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it solid and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes called "cap".
The crowns are an ideal way to repair broken or weakened teeth by tooth decay or a very bulky filling.
A crown can be used for a number of other reasons, for example, the patient may have a faded seal and wish to improve the appearance of the tooth.
It may be helpful to keep a bridge or prosthesis firmly in place.
Crowns can be made in a variety of different materials, including porcelain, ceramics and glass, and new materials are constantly being introduced.
When the dentist is satisfied with the fit and appearance of the crown, it is secured with the help of a cement or a special dental adhesive. The cement forms a seal to hold the crown in place.
At the first visit, the dental team will prepare the tooth, take fingerprints, note the shade of the tooth and install the temporary crown.
During the second visit, the dentist will install the permanent crown.

"I had the habit of putting my hands on my mouth to prevent people from looking at my teeth. Now, every time I realize I'm doing it, I smile even bigger than ever. & # 39;
Ms. Iglesias became aware of her teeth for the first time in 2013 when she first saw her on television.
She said, "Before having my wedding on TV, I had never realized how bad my teeth seemed to me. I was like "oh my god" and I was so embarrassed by them.
"At that time, I finally saw what they looked like.
"From there, I managed to smile while keeping my mouth shut, but when I had to talk, sing, or play, I knew I could not hide them.
"I'm smiling at home. But on the outside, on the red carpet or while working on TV, I hid them, smiling only with my mouth shut because my teeth looked awful.
Ms. Iglesias began studying cosmetic work three years ago, but she feared dental work after a painful canal canal 20 years ago.

She said, "I know it seemed futile, but I wanted something to fix myself and make myself a little happier and more confident."

Dental bridges were used. They consist of one or more false teeth in place of a missing tooth, held in place by dental crowns.

"This tooth has caused so many dramas in the past that I wanted to remember everything that I have lived through and overcome.
"The reaction of people has varied, some saying," Oh my god, you are the craziest person, "but others have found it cool, who knows, I might have started a new trend."
