Teeth are decaying? Can't afford the dentist at all, what can I do? Please help.?

My teeth are awful. Just, awful. And when I talk to people, it's the thing they always stare at. And I can't bring it up because telling someone "Stop looking at my teeth" will just have their entire attention focus on my teeth. When I go out with friends, we always take pictures, and when I look... show more My teeth are awful. Just, awful. And when I talk to people, it's the thing they always stare at. And I can't bring it up because telling someone "Stop looking at my teeth" will just have their entire attention focus on my teeth. When I go out with friends, we always take pictures, and when I look back, everyone is flashing their perfect smiles, but me. They can all let their faces be free and loose and smile, but when I'm out, I'm always conscious on which facial expressions to make to make sure my teeth aren't shown. It's sad. When everyone is laughing and having a good time, I simply smile with my mouth closed. As for dentists, completely out of the question. We have no money for it, and we have no insurance. I tell my mom, but she just says "I don't know what to tell you". I don't want to go to the dentist, just to be denied due to having no money. Do I just let my teeth decay or...? At this point, I'm so ashamed that I don't even want to hang out with anyone, I don't want them to feel disgusted by me. if I could stay hidden forever, then fine. Let my teeth rot away. But since I obviously can't do that. What can I do? Telling my mom won't help. Dentists won't help. I know natural "remedies" won't reverse my tooth decay. It's completely worthless now, my teeth have ruined my life. The only time where I can never worry about them is when I'm inside my room alone. But as soon as I leave my house, they ruin everything.
