How I Battled One of My Biggest Insecurities


As a blogger with a significant amount of followers online, producing content that is inspiring to my readers is one of the biggest reasons I do what I do. To effectively inspire others, I often have to mask my various insecurities and portray myself as confident and carefree to my audience. Because I reckon doing the opposite would be counteractive to my purpose. One of these insecurities is my teeth being not as pristine white as they used to be. I’m a huge fan of coffee (and wine, lol) and this has taken a toll on my then-pearly-whites. Because of this, I’ve often resolved to smiling without showing me teeth for my photos. You can check my Instagram account! Photos with full on smiles are a rarity for me.

I’ve been battling this insecurity for a while now but when I was given a chance to fix this insecurity with Apostol Dental Cosmetic Center, I immediately grabbed the opportunity.




















Located at the third floor of Medical Center Makati, Apostol Dental Cosmetic Center is helmed by a talented couple named Dr. Jonas Apostol and his lovely wife, Elaine. Established in 2010, the clinic has does a wide range of services but is most well-known for cosmetic dentistry.

Upon entering the clinic, I was greeted by clean and new interiors, relaxing music and was personally welcomed by Elaine. They offer coffee, tea or even wine to their clients!


After a short consultation, we began with the teeth whitening. Teeth whitening dental procedure is a form of cosmetic dentistry that helps lighten teeth and remove stains and discoloration. They use radiant white chairside teeth whitening under a laser machine and is done for 3 to 4 cycles in one session.

The whole process took only 2 hours! I can’t believe that the only thing hindering me from defeating one of my biggest insecurities is a simple 2-hour procedure. The code for the shade of my teeth was at A3 but Doc Jonas was able to turn it into BW (bleach white)!


It’s amazing how a simple procedure could boost one’s confidence from a 6 to 15 overnight. Waking up the day after felt like waking up to a whole new Maxie. I couldn’t help but smile at everyone that came my way. I also couldn’t keep myself from smiling at every mirror I came across and most importantly, smiling at cameras! Dr. Apostol’s teeth whitening procedure has definitely been life changing and I can’t recommend it enough to you guys!


For those who have insecurities like me when it comes to their pearly whites, Dr. Jonas is the guy for you.
