Don't give up hope.
It's worth it, I tell you! The pain and deprivation are worth it! All those Snickers, Milky Ways, Tootsie Rolls, Skittles, and Peanut M&Ms you're forced to give away are redeemed in the end!
Actually, I'm lying. You never do quite get over their loss.
But at least your teeth look good. =D
