Don’t be sad. If it helps you feel better, I’ve had an underbite since childhood and my dentist tells me unless I want to undergo very painful expensive jaw surgery and then few years of braces to fix my bite, which still wouldn’t guarantee anything, I’ll just have to live with it. On top of things I have poor enamel, was born in a third world country), so I’ve had three adult teeth pulled and about four root canals now. So I have plenty of fake teeth including one bridge and possible implant in the future. I’ve put over 10K into my teeth as I don’t have standard dental insurance. BUT I have a guy who loves me and great health otherwise so there’s still plenty to be thankful for ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully you can get great dental insurance and space the implants out so it’s not so costly at one time?

Have you looked into Dental Colleges? It’s basically a school for to-be dentists. They are supervised by their professors (who are dentists) and it allows them real-world practice and the patient gets low-cost care.

If Colorado is the area you live in, I found a list of low-cost clinics you could look into.

Have you looked into going out of the country for dental work? I have no personal experience, but I listen to financial advice talk shows on the radio sometimes and they always talk about how affordable dental care is in places like Mexico where you can still get very high quality work done for much less than in the US… So much that even factoring in travel costs you save a lot of money. Again, i don’t have any personal experience with this, but its maybe an option to research.

@alyssaC:  Perhaps shrink the wedding, and save up for the teeth?
