Earlier this year, Shontelle shared her life-long struggle of hiding behind her teeth.

In a video to More FM she said she was born with too many teeth and after they continued to deteriorate she resented leaving the house, refused to have photos taken of her and developed depression.

But now, her smile has been completely transformed. She's been given $30,000 worth of dental treatment by Jacqui and the team at Alpers Dental - and now she has a smile she's proud of.

In a video shared by the station today, Shontelle broke down in tears as she saw her new set of teeth saying: "Oh my God, it's amazing. Thank you so much!"
