Lori’s Self-Esteem Plummets
Lori believes that her teeth are the direct cause of her low self-esteem. This is a very common insecurity. In fact, it’s reported to be the second most common insecurity next to weight, but Lori’s case was so severe that it wasn’t easily hidden. She didn’t just have crooked or yellow teeth. Part of her mouth was missing.
In 2014, she told the hosts of the talk show The Doctors that losing her teeth ruined her life. “Losing my teeth changed everything,” Lori said. “People look at you differently. They automatically assume that you’re uneducated. I’ve heard people in the background say that I’m a meth addict, and I don’t do drugs.”
