I think when it comes to teeth most people agree that they're worth the money (unlike, say, breast implants). Though $10,000 sounds kind of extreme for a bit of whitening and straightening. I'd love to see a pic of her old teeth for comparison-- if her teeth were in bad shape, I never noticed it before. Sidenote: How do you have your teeth straightened in two hours? I thought it took an embarassing year of horrible-looking braces to do that.
