Rumble / Fascinating PeopleDr. Kenny Wilstead gave David Cowart a new reason to smile. The kind dentist gave David’s teeth a free makeover in his Texas-based surgery on October 20. The effects of four years of cancer treatment had left David unwilling to leave his house because of the condition of his teeth. As seen in this video, David said, “I don’t leave the house, my upper lip didn’t used to be this long, I hold my lip down the whole time to cover my teeth so it’s made my face look weird (sic).” After seeing his new smile in a mirror for the first time the father joked, “I just feel weird smiling!” David’s proud wife Kimberly subsequently changed her profile picture on Facebook to a photograph of her smiling husband.
