Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem sparked mixed reactions after promoting a cosmetic dentistry service on social media Monday.

Noem took to Twitter to share her personal journey with Houston-based cosmetic and implant dental practice, Smile Texas. “I love my new family at Smile Texas! The video says it all, and I am so grateful for their help fixing my smile for me,” she wrote.

In the video, she recounted an incident from years ago when she lost all her front teeth in a biking accident. “I love that my bite is better, that my teeth are a better shape, that they feel better in my mouth and that I can be confident when I smile at people,” Noem said in the video. “It has been a gift to be here at Smile Texas.” (RELATED: ‘What Has He Done?’: CNN Host Goes Silent After Gov.
