Victim Of Domestic Violence Lost House And Front Teeth. But She Is Unrecognizable Now, After The Complete Makeover
Most people spend their evenings in the family circle, discussing the day and just resting after the hard working day. But unfortunately, not all people have a place they can call home. Some of them are forced to leave home without the proper support.
It especially concerns women, who appear to be more vulnerable. As reported by Homeless Hub, women who experience violence and who live in poverty are often forced to choose between abusive relationships and homelessness. That’s exactly what happened to Dee, a victim of abusive relations, who appeared to lose everything.

Dee is a brave woman with a hard life story. She is the victim of domestic violence, who found herself without a home, job, and because of her abuser, without her front teeth for more than 3 years. Can you even imagine living without front teeth for several years?
This woman’s self-confidence was extremely low, and she lost any hope to get a new, different life. Her awful smile reminded her about the times when she was abused and desperate.
During the interview with Cision, she said:
Temp agencies wouldn’t send me out to any good jobs. Anything in an office environment was out of the question. I couldn’t even get work as a cashier, because people didn’t want their customers to see my teeth. Even with my years of management experience, they would put me in entry-level overnight positions or have me work with the janitorial staff. It just became very depressing.
After months of savings, Dee decided that it is the time to change everything and to forget about that terrible period. She told her story to prove that there is a way out even from the hardest situation.
Over the next few weeks, the woman got an amazing new smile and a complete surprise makeover.
Dee’s new smile and style is the beginning of the new, happy life!
