Were your teeth replaced by a bridge, prosthetic or dental implants? Having a nice smile makes us feel good about ourselves. If we don't have one, it darn well can make us depressed and not just for the reason stated above.

I have TMJ and had to have all my front teeth pulled out. It was two years before they could get all the dental implants in and because of my TMJ, wearing a dental prosthetic was out of the question. It caused too much pain and I could only mumble with it in. No one could understand me.

I went two years on job interviews with no front teeth. I doubt I made a good impression no matter how hard I tried. No one wants an Assistant Controller (lead account) without front teeth. I was never hired and you bet I was depressed. Not just because I felt like I looked horrible but because no one would hire me.
