Love at first bite for dentist's son-in-law
A dentist told today how he only gave his approval to his daughter's wedding on the condition that his future son-in-law agreed to fix his terrible teeth.
Years of neglect had left Gordon Taylor's teeth stained and crooked.
So when the 32-year-old asked Dr Philip Lewis for his daughter's hand in marriage, he was given the ultimatum of having his smile sorted.
Mr Taylor is now beginning extensive dental surgery but for the wedding with 36-year-old Sarah he wore a cosmetic tooth cap to give him a nice smile for the big day in Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
Dr Lewis said: "I have to say the thought of my daughter walking down the aisle to Gordon with his teeth the way they were was not a good one.
"Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and if there's a day in your life you want your smile to look your best it's your wedding day."
Mr Taylor said: "I never meant to neglect my teeth, I guess it was just the lifestyle I was leading.
"When I met Sarah, coming from a family business where her father is a dentist I think they notice it more than others.
"I'm really looking forward to the end result. It will make such a difference to my looks and confidence."
His new wife said: "I'm thrilled Gordon's been undergoing this dental work.
"I will always love him regardless, but I know the finished look will certainly please him, as well as our family and friends."
