Mykiria Mitchell proudly shows off her new smile.

Mykiria Mitchell has been through much adversity in 20 years of life, but nothing as difficult as not being able to smile. Diagnosed at 3 years old, Mykiria suffers from amelogenesis imperfecta (AI), an abnormal enamel formation that affects one in 14,000 people in the United States, and has endured years of physical and emotional pain. AI causes teeth to be unusually small, discolored, pitted or grooved, as well as prone to rapid wear and breakage.  Find out about Mykiria’s new reason to smile on UAB News.
