Win a Smile Makeover of a Lifetime! #giveaway #damondiva

I was provided a complete smile makeover from Ormco and Damon Braces. We were compensated throughout this campaign, however all opinions remain my own.

Here I am in my 11 month of wearing braces, and I cannot begin to tell you what a difference it has made in how I view myself. I was a person that kept my smile hidden because I thought it was ugly, and I had this notion that I would never have a beautiful smile, because adults didn’t wear braces. Boy was I ever wrong!


Never in a million years did I think I would be able to smile and be proud of what I was seeing. It’s so hard now to get me to hide my grin.I still have a few months to go according to my orthodontist, but he is super excited and keeps telling me my life will never be the same again after I complete my entire treatment.

Now — I’m going to be smiling even more when I get to share this amazing surprise giveaway with you!

One of our readers is going to get a chance to win a smile makeover too worth $8,000!

  1. harold says

    I’d like to win, because my teeth has been losing their whiteness, and I’ve been thinking about trying a product like this for a while now.

  2. says

    I’d love to win this for my hubby who is a little self-conscious about his teeth. He broke one of his teeth when he was younger and it still bothers him that it doesn’t line up perfectly with the others. Thanks for the chance to enter!

  3. Linda Stewart says

    Like you, I have lived my entire adult life thinking I would always have that less that stellar smile, for multiple reasons. Expense has always been an issue. I struggled with my oldest daughter to get her through braces while she was, what I thought was ‘age appropriate’. The expense was overwhelming when I was trying to raise two daughters on my own. My teeth were never really an option. Now that I’ve hit that magical age of 50 I regret never doing anything about my teeth. Unfortunately, even though my girls are grown, expense still is an issue. I went from raising my daughters alone, to raising their children. At the young and tender ages of 3 & 6 we already know that two of them will require dental correction when they hit the right age. It’s equally as possible the third one will require them too. Once again, I put my dental health care on the back burner to take care of their teeth. It’s a choice I had to make for my girls, and now I’m faced with making the same choice for their boys. Naturally the mother/grandmother in me will put them first, thus tossing me back to the other reason … I’m too old for dental correction. I’d love to win a package like this and be able to put my dental health care back on the front burner. Without an awesome miracle, such as this, I’ll just have to wait until mine fall out and hope that dentures will give me that million dollar smile.

  4. Wanda McHenry says

    I used to have straight teeth when I was younger, but as the years have gone by my top teeth have shifted and they are crowding toward the front and I am very self conscious about them. I know I need braces but since our dental insurance doesn’t cover braces, I’ve been holding off. This would be fantastic if I won!

  5. DebbieKL says

    Awesome! My husband has wanted to get braces for years, but never goes through with it because of the cost. This would be perfect for him!

  6. Crissy D. says

    I have had problems with my teeth my entire life, but I have never been financially stable enough to get them fixed. Having teeth that look good would make me feel good and I could smile again and mean it this time.

  7. Anne Lehnick says

    I would like to win for my husband. He has a few problem areas with his smile that I know he would like to fix. I think he looks fine, but he doesn’t feel that way.

  8. says

    As much as I’d love to win this for myself, I want to win it even more for my 14 yr old son. He has a large gap in his front teeth and they turn slightly outward. He won’t ever do an open mouth smile because he’s too embarrassed by it. My insurance will only provide braces if it’s “necessary”, and a boy’s self esteem isn’t considered a necessity. As a single mom, it’s definitely an expense I can’t afford. He also has discoloration in his teeth as well. Because of how self conscious he is, something like these would be so much better for him than traditional braces that would bring more attention to him. Thank you for the opportunity!

  9. KATHY says

    I would so love to win this! I have some definite dental needs, but haven’t been able to attend to them since being diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer one year ago. I’m doing well, and the future looks good, but our medical bills and pharmacy costs are pretty staggering.

  10. Lachelle B says

    I would love to win this for my husband! He has always been self conscious of his smile and has been hiding it for years. He is in sales though and it impacts his business and our way of life. We have been trying to fix up his smile throughout our 9 years of marriage but keep having setbacks in other areas. It would change not only his life but the life of our entire family to have a smile he could be proud of!

  11. Steve B says

    I have the worst front teeth in the world. I still have some baby teeth that were never pulled and my front teeth are fangled.

  12. Sonya Morris says

    I would love to win this for my husband! When he was younger he had teeth pulled out because of overcrowding and his mom could not afford braces. We have put invisilign & braces on two of our oldest girls and I always feel bad that we can’t afford to get them for him…of course if we did scrape up the money, he would never spend it on himself! I would love for him to have a great smile, thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Angel S. says

    I would like to win this for our son who is in college. We could never afford braces when he was younger. I love that he is giving it his all in college. I would love to give him this makeover so that when he is ready to graduate,, he can have the extra confidence of a beautiful smile as he gets ready to enter the job force. It is amazing how much confidence you can get from great teeth!!

  14. Dawn says

    I would love to win this because I wore braces as a child, but one chicken bone managed to undo the entire thing a couple of months after I got them off. I have thought about re-doing it, but there is never enough money…

  15. Melissa P. says

    I would love to win this for my son. He is 11-years old and is currently going through the first phase of orthodontic treatment (expander/braces/top teeth). My dental insurance has a lifetime max for orthodontics and that has been used for my sons first phase. I have no idea how I’m going to pay for the second phase (Bottom & Top). He also has has a top tooth that is at an weird angle and we are not sure if it’s going to come down on it’s own.

  16. Amy Brewer says

    I would love to win this because I am so embarrassed of my smile..I don’t take pictures with a smile or anything..

  17. marian boll says

    This would be such a dream come true for my granddaughter. She sucked her fingers and just couldn’t stop and now wishes she could go back in time.

    She’s self aware too much of her smile and I’m afraid this will hold her back.

  18. Serena Powell says

    I have a dual bite (part of my teeth are an underbite while the rest are an over bite.) I would love to be able to get braces to fix it as it causes pain when I eat.

  19. Darlene Carbajal says

    I would love to win the smile makeover because I am self- conscious about my teeth and smile. When I smile, my lips get crooked. It’s not even a smile when I smile. I also have an underbite. Sometimes my jaw gets stuck and it’s annoying. I never show my teeth in pictures. I always wanted the damon system braces. Mostly everyone I know has them or is getting them soon and I’m here waiting… waiting… so it would be great to win this smile makeover. Thanks so much!

  20. Kapri Donaldson says

    I want to win because since I was little I was made fun of because I have a gap so I learned how to smile with my mouth closed even as an adult I don’t have any pictures that show my teeth.

  21. Victoria Cortinas says

    I would love to win this. I have always been so self conscience about my canine teeth. I hate smiling, this would an awesome giveaway to win.

  22. Amy Tolley says

    well i would love this procedure because beibg a single parent for the mahority of my kids growing up paying for health dental etc is costly so usually you opt out of those benefits so i never really had dental coverage so all i could do for my teeth was keep them brush and flossed but over the years i have been very self consious of my mouth and cant afford to spend that kind of money on my mouth thanks for this chance this would be a drem come true to whom ever wins this amazing prize best of luck and many blessings to everyone entering thanks

  23. Heather B says

    I would love to win this! My teeth have been losing their whiteness and I have a couple in the back that are slowly rotting away

  24. Kim Holsapple says

    I wore top braces when I was a kid but not on my bottom teeth. As I have been aging my bottom teeth have come more and more crooked. So now when I smile, I have to make sure it is not a big smile or everyone can see the crooked teeth.

  25. brandy g. says

    I would like to win this because my teeth are not straight and the 2 front teeth have a small gap in between them, I have always wanted to get that fixed.

  26. Jessica B says

    I want to win this because I need it. Dental work is expensive, yet a smile is so very important to helping you create the image you want in life and is one of the first things people notice about you. I would love to be able to fix what damage has been done and show my smile off to the world like I used to with confidence

  27. julie murphy says

    I have had to have some teeth pulled so I could use a new smile. I don’t have insurance and currently unemployed.

  28. edq143 says

    I would use this for my son. He needs braces and I just have not figured out how I can afford them yet. He also needs them lightened a bit.

  29. Heather Hayes Panjon says

    I Would Love To Win This For Myself! I Have Always Needed Braces. I Have Been Very Reluctant To Show My Teeth, It Has Affected My Confidence And This Would Be The Best Gift Ever!

  30. Angela says

    I’ve wanted braces since I was a teenager to correct a gap between my front teeth and an overbite. I would love the boost of confidence a beautiful smile would give me.

  31. Lauren-Olivia Wood says

    I need this teeth makeover because my dentist wants me to have braces but I cannot afford them by myself. I already have other loans that must come first in my finances. This would greatly help me live a better life!

  32. Melissa L. says

    I would like to win this smile makeover because I think fixing my smile would help boost my confidence. Thank you for the giveaway!

  33. Natalie S says

    I would love to win this b/c although I had braces when I was younger, I was terrible about wearing my retainer and need to get them again. This would help me to achieve a great smile and more confidence!

  34. Crystal Sweet says

    Both of my girls need braces, but I’m not sure how we are going to afford it. Winning this would be a dream come true!

  35. Jennifer Baxter says

    Growing up, my family could not afford dental care, much less braces. Ive had crooked teeth all of my life and I dream of being able to afford to correct them. I am still unable to afford the expense and have sadly come to terms with the idea of never knowing what it would be like to have beautiful straight teeth. An opportunity like this is something I would dream of. I have to at least try.

  36. Danielle says

    I always thought I was too old to get braces but really, I would love to have my teeth straight. I have had 2 boys and 1 girl already put through the braces and now it’s time for ME!!!

  37. martha says

    Talking about a miracle this would surely be top of the list,,,,i know I want ever be 17 again but my smile and my attitude can be adjusted to make me feel even better than then…..REALLY COULD USE THIS….THANK YOU & GOOD LUCK TO ALL

  38. Sunnymay says

    I’ve invested a lot in my teeth this year, starting with a tooth that broke on popcorn in February. It was going to happen because the tooth was not well. I’m flossing, brushing with a soft toothbrush twice a day and getting my twice a year cleaning, so I’m doing what the dentist asks. It would be nice to close the gap between my front teeth that when the wisdom teeth came in closed a little. I love to smile and braces – either invisible (like Duchess Kate Middleton) or the regular kind would be fine. Four of my five kids had braces, so I know the commitment it takes for a good result.

  39. jeremy amistadi says

    I would love love love to win this!! I have had traumatic experience with a dentist when I was very young. this may help me to get over my fear and give me some self confidence too.

  40. jodi goins says

    i would like to win because about 2 years ago i finally got my awful teeth pulled i have none on top and very few on is awful.i would die if i won tis.i have had trouble getting a job,or just wanting to be around is embarrising.

  41. vera says

    I’d love to win this because I have a gap in my top teeth and it has always bothered me, could definitely use braces.

  42. kendra says

    I would love so very much to win this because I have some issues that urgently need to be fixed, and dental care is so very expensive. Thank you for the opportunity.

  43. Heather Garcia says

    I have always had the “bad teeth”, never smile in pics and laughing is not a big thing to me cause I dont want any one to see my teeth

  44. Kevin says

    I would LOVE to win this for our (almost) eight year old daughter, because she still sucks her fingers at night, which has now caused an overbite.

    We bought Mavalo-Stop, but she hid it from us, and we can’t keep buying more bottles.

    She will need work.

    And, if the prize can’t be for her, I would use it on myself since I stopped wearing my retainer after I lost it for a second time, and some of my teeth shifted back.

  45. Alex says

    I’m in dire need of some dental work to fix my smile. Unfortunately, being a single dad, money is tight and “unnecessary” dental work is not an option right now. Winning this would be a god send!

  46. Crystal F says

    My youngest daughter is going through this whole process right now. She just starting it with the retainer but braces are in the near future. I would love to win this for her. Thank you!

  47. Kim H says

    I have been looking into getting a makeover for myself since I am finally done taking care of all the kids smiles

  48. Jennifer C says

    I had braces back when I was 11-12. They somewhat helped my teeth but since becoming an adult and having my wisdom teeth removed, my bite has been off and I still have quite an overbite. I’ve thought about adult braces, and even Invisalign, but my 2 daughters are now going through the orthodontic process and there just isn’t extra money for my teeth. I just continue to go through with the mouth-closed smile like I have for many years.

  49. Carol G says

    My gums and teeth are disappearing before my eyes. The pain and despair I feel after so many years of not having the dental work I need done.

  50. Brittney House says

    This would be for my mother, she has been self conscious about her teeth since forever but has never has the money to do anything about it.

  51. April says

    I would love to win this. My dentist keeps telling me I need braces because my bottom teeth are starting to overlap each other and cavities go in between the teeth and they can’t get to it.

  52. Ashley P says

    I would love to win this for myself. I have a couple teeth that are out of place and I would love to feel confident again!

  53. steve says

    Have paid for both kids to have their teeth done now I would like to have mine fixed. I have a front tooth that was knocked in years ago and is thinning because of its position.

  54. Cynthia W says

    I want to win this smile makeover because I am embarrassed to smile or even to talk. I am afraid of showing my stained, irregular teeth.

  55. Christian Alejandro says

    I tend to think my smile isn’t very photogenic, so steer clear from smiling! I would love a makeover.

  56. Lean S says

    I would love this for myself because I am a student and don’t have the funds to get my teeth fixed, so this would be amazing.

  57. Candice H says

    I would like to win because I’ve always disliked my teeth. Growing up my parents could only get one of us braces, my brother was older, so he got them. My tooth front teeth stick out farther in the front and I have rather large teeth so I was always called rabbit teeth or buck toothed. I am laughing or smiling about 75% of my day and I can ignore my teeth usually, but people love to take pictures and I hate my smile in pictures. Another main reason is because a few of my teeth are pushing sideways and they hurt often.
    Thank you for the chance to win!

  58. Mya Murphy says

    I have extremely crooked teeth and a major overbite. It is very embarrassing for me to smile. I am always self-conscious, and this would improve my confidence.

  59. Denise Donaldson says

    I want to get a smile make over, because I am tired of being in pain from bad teeth. I want to be able to feel beautiful when I smile, instead of being ashamed. I want my daughter to see what I look like with a beautiful smile. :)

  60. Coriander Warren says

    This would be a great prize for me or my daughter. I would give it to her over taking it myself. She is 15 and has a lot of oral issues, I know this would make her a more confident young lady if she were to have a fantastic smile to match her gorgeous face and personality!

  61. Patrice J says

    I really need a smile makeover. I had a smile that would brighten up any room. Now with my missing tooth I don’t smile as much as I use too. I need my smile back.

  62. sarah says

    I never got braces as a kid. At 36, I hate my smile, but cannot afford braces. I would love to finally get my teeth fixed.

  63. Shana F says

    I would like to win this for my son who needs braces. Unfortunately, we cannot afford this procedure for him. I believe that it effects his sociability at school and self appearance of himself. This would be a dream win for us. Thanks for the chance of a lifetime! :)

  64. melikegarfield says

    There is a lot of small things that are needed to give me a solid, straight smile. I think it would give me more confidence.

  65. says

    I have always been concerned about my teeth and I’ve always wanted to have them fixed. I think this is awesome and it would help me with my confidence. :) I won’t have to hide my teeth.

  66. Brittany says

    I don’t feel my teeth look at pretty as they once did and I think it would boost my confidence in my smile. Thanks for the chance to win.

  67. kathy stevenson says

    I would love to win this for myself because I had braces when I was younger but my teeth are still crooked!

  68. stacey b says

    This would be for my husband, who often gets abscess due to his teeth that need dental work. He hasnt had dental insurance for years until recently to be able to get them cared for, but we can’t afford all the work that needs done. It’s a lot!

  69. Lauren E. says

    I want to win this to give as a present to my sister. She is self conscious about her smile and I think this could make a huge difference in how she feels about herself.

  70. says

    I want to win because I haven’t been able to smile properly in years (without feeling self-conscious) – after four pregnancies, my teeth are so badly damaged that I can’t even eat without pain, and they look horrible!

  71. says

    It’s funny how wearing braces has become so popular nowadays, whereas about 10 years ago people wear ashamed to flash a smile because they were self conscious about people seeing their braces. One of my friends actually has great teeth but I can’t believe he’s gone out and spend money on braces. Wearing braces now is the new sexy so they say!
