Does Your Smile Embarrass You? You’re Not Alone!

Woman hiding her smileDo you find yourself hiding your teeth when it’s time for a photo, or when you’re meeting someone for the first time? It seems you’re not alone! Millions of Americans are embarrassed about some aspect of their smile according to surveys done by researchers across the country. This feeling of shame about their teeth may even cause patients to avoid the dentist for routine visits, let alone treatment that could benefit them. The good news is that your dentist in Temple has solutions for you!

Why Do People Avoid the Dentist?

Besides being embarrassed about the current state of their teeth and oral health, there are a number of other factors that keep patients from seeking much-needed dental care including:

  • The time it takes out of their busy schedules
  • The out-of-pocket cost of treatment
  • Fear or anxiety about dental procedures

Did you know that there are a number of affordable and effective treatment procedures available for patients that will enhance the appearance of their teeth?

Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth is a quick and cost effective way to give your smile an upgrade, and it can even be done from the comfort of your own home! Convenient custom take home trays allow you to brighten your smile based on your schedule and time frame. The fact that they’re custom made to fit your teeth offers better protection from excess whitening gel than generic over-the-counter options.

Cosmetic Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment procedure that uses composite resin to repair different issues such as:

  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Small chips and fractures
  • Size or shape discrepancies
  • Root exposure due to recession

Bonding is a non-invasive procedure that can typically be completed during one appointment, and it’s often less expensive than other cosmetic procedures.

Porcelain Veneers

Are you ready to go for the Hollywood smile upgrade? You’ll want to talk with your dentist about porcelain veneers. These are thin layers of porcelain designed to fit over your tooth and capable of changing the shape, size, or shade of your teeth. Veneers are bonded directly to your tooth, so they also add strength and longevity to your teeth.
