I’m Embarrassed To SmileHelping Patients Who Are Embarrassed To Smile Read Transcript
If you're embarrassed to smile, there are many different options and many different treatments that can be done. One of the things that we take pleasure in and enjoy doing for patients is to give them kind of a simulation of what could be done in their own mouth. This is often done very simply with an immediate cosmetic makeover in the chair that says you can see a before and after without having to go through this. We've tried it with cosmetic simulation and it isn't as good. We can show the patient what's happening in their own mouth and show them what they can actually have done, that gives them the opportunity to think of life in a different way. When patients see what can be done, they smile more, they feel better about themselves, they are happier to have the work done, and it's a type of thing that says when people smile more, they're happier, they're healthier. It's not just about how they look, but it's also about how they feel and about how they feel affects other health.
Your smile could be a source of pride instead of shame. If you have smile embarrassment, let us help you since we offer solutions to it. General dentists Dr. Doug McDermid and Dr. Rose K. Dhillon at Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB offer several cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve the appearance of your teeth:
- Dental veneers
- Teeth whitening
- Orthodontics (and short-term options too!)
Any of these procedures may be packaged together by your dentist to create a smile makeover and overcome your smile embarrassment.
Dental Veneers To Conceal Flaws In Your Smile
Dental veneers are small pieces of translucent material that can be laid over your natural teeth to conceal any flaws you find unsightly.
Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB offers two types: traditional porcelain veneers and thinner e.max ceramic veneers. Both can help you solve your smile embarrassment.
Teeth Whitening To Get That Brighter, Whiter Smile You Desire
Want a clean start with your smile? Professional teeth whitening treatment can make your smile several shades whiter. Lakewood Dental Centre offers in-office and at-home options by:
Orthodontics For Straighter Teeth
You may be pleased to learn that there are now many orthodontic treatments available in addition to traditional braces. At Lakewood Dental Centre, we offer several clear aligner systems that might be able to straighten your teeth without metal brackets and wires:
- Red, White, & Blue
- Smart Moves
Should you need or prefer metal braces, we offer a nickel-titanium blend (nitinol). It differs from traditional stainless steel wires because it has a “memory” of its straight shape. It will continue to try returning to that state, which applies constant pressure to your teeth to move them into more appropriate positions.
