Virgine was born in a small town in northern France called Lille. She grew up with the outlook of only going to the dentist when something was wrong with your teeth and therefore never had a clean or basic checkups.
Virgine has two kids, a five year old, Kenyon, born in New York, and a seven month old, Lili-Ella, born here in Sydney.
During her pregnancies, Virgine had big troubles with her teeth — root canal work and a tooth pulled out. She was in a lot of pain. She says her teeth have always given her trouble.
Crooked and misshapen front teeth, coupled with a large amount of visible gum, have made Virgine so self-conscious she is too embarrassed to show her teeth and although she says she is a happy person, she hardly ever smiles Virgine finally sought help from cosmetic dentist Dr Angelo Laziris, who prescribed a course of treatment involving a gum lift, tooth whitening and a series of crowns and veneers to cover Virgine’s troublesome teeth.
