Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This positive and informative makeover series allows viewers to see the physical and emotional transformations that result from having a nice smile. It also highlights some of the causes of bad teeth, which range from genetic disorders to decay caused by the extensive use of drugs due to medical treatments and/or addiction. The inability to afford good dental care also is underscored as a major factor.

Granted, the images of rotting teeth and bloody dental procedures aren't easy to watch. Viewers also may feel frustrated when they learn more about the actual cost of these life-changing treatments, which can add up to a whopping $80,000, even if they address serious medical concerns. You can't help but feel happy for the folks featured here, and the show will encourage you to take better care of your own mouth.
