I’m 24 with dentures after botched surgery left me with no teeth – people used to ask me out for a dare but now I’m hot
TIKTOKER and denture-influencer Alex Sandroski showed off her good looks and laughed that people used to ask her out "for a dare" but that the joke was now on them.
The stunning 24-year-old had horrific problems with her teeth growing up that caused her great pain.
Braces only made the problem worse and after 22 botched surgeries, she opted to have her teeth removed and to have a full set of dentures.
Having finally found a solution for her teeth and her confidence she laughed at the cruel bullies who taunted her when she was younger.
The empowering TikTok has been viewed more than 20k times and followers were quick to comment.
One said: "Every poor sucker having to see you now. You're a knockout!!"
Another said: "You were just as beautiful then as now!! I would be honoured at any time!!"
A third couldn't believe her teeth weren't real saying: "How do you have dentures???"
Throughout her teenage years, Alex – who now works at a dispatcher for a dental company – continued losing teeth and struggled with regular infections and breakage.
She said: "I missed a lot of school because I would be up all night with bad toothache and when I was 12, I was given braces for the first time which worsened my condition.
"The cavities got worse and the dentist discovered I had short roots during the time I had braces meaning my teeth were getting extremely loose and breaking.
"I had to have the braces removed and a permanent wire put on the back of my teeth to keep them in place.

"But whenever I would eat something, my teeth would crack off and crumble into my mouth."
In an attempt to create some kind uniformity, Alex was advised to get a root canal treatment and crowns on the majority of her remaining teeth – but claims it was a "botched" job.
She said: "I had problems from day one of doing that – [my dentist] didn't do the work properly and it was done too quickly so everything started to fail and before I knew it, I was having infection after infection."
The dentures look very realistic and no one knows I have them until I tell them – I love seeing people's reactions for the first time.
At just 22 years old, Alex was faced with the decision to either have all her teeth removed or continue forking out for treatments.
But after years of feeling self-conscious about her smile, Alex now has a realistic set of fake teeth – and she loves surprising strangers by popping them out.
She added: "Dental implants would have set me back $35,000 for just the top and I couldn't afford it.
"Right now, I'm at a point where I'm happy, pain free and pleased with my decision to get dentures.
"The dentures look very realistic and no one knows I have them until I tell them – I love seeing people's reactions for the first time!"
