I need advice. My dentist humiliated me last week. He made the comment that my tooth gap is unattractive and I need to have dental bonding done. I tried to hold back the tears, especially because I can’t afford it. I don’t want to go about my life ugly, but I don’t have money. Are their options?

No dentist should make a patient feel the way you feel now. Plus, if the worse thing he could say to you was you have a gap, then you must be much more beautiful than you think.
As far as the gap goes, there are many gorgeous women, including models, with a gap in their teeth. However, if you have your heart set on fixing the gap, there are affordable ways to do it.
The obvious one is to save up little by little so you can pay it outright. Another is to go to a dentist who has a low or no interest payment plan.
May I suggest you may want a different dentist. I don’t like the way your dentist treated you.
