In recent years, teeth have become the new status symbol or the best way to display your wealth and health.
No one knows this more than the New Zealand-based mother of four, Shontelle Crosby, who grabbed the attention of a local radio station on account of her mangled mouth, and later had her smile fixed by a dental company for free.
Ms Crosby, who struggled with confidence her entire life after she was born with too many teeth and a too-small jaw, was gifted an incredible new smile thanks to an appearance on the radio station based in Auckland, MoreFM.
Her extensive dental work was valued at around NZ $30,000 or AUD $28,000.
According to the 33-year-old, she is delighted with the results of the three-month-long process, which saw Ms Crosby have 20 teeth pulled, four fillings, four cleans and complete top and partial bottom dentures made.
