Scots mum who would never smile travels 28,000 miles to fix dodgy teeth

A woman who would never smile in photos due to her dodgy teeth travelled 28,000 miles for dentist treatment in Budapest - and says she never stops grinning now.

Olive Bruce, 61, had issues with her NHS dentist near Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, and looked at alternative options before her daughter's wedding in 2003.

She found treatment in Budapest, Hungary, was about half the cost of going private in the UK. Mum-of-four Olive grew up so self-conscious of her teeth that she would never smile before a camera, and wanted her teeth to be fixed before wedding photos.

At primary school she had fallen against a water fountain and twisted a front tooth, causing the nerves to coil around the tooth, resulting in her having major surgery and being advised her top teeth would only last five years.
