Restore Your Smile, Restore Your Confidence: 4 Dental Treatments to Help You Regain Your Lost Confidence

Dentist Blog

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. The same could be said for a smile. When you greet someone, it is often your body language, your demeanour, and your smile that give the first impression of the kind of person you are. An eye-catching, expressive smile can spark romance across a room or brighten someone's day. But what if you can't smile freely? What if you feel forced to limit your smile because you are afraid of what people might think of your teeth?

Naturally, not being able to smile at the people around you in the way that you want to will lead to a loss of confidence. You'll avoid social situations and limit your time spent around people.

In other words, you miss out on life. Fortunately, a dentist can help you regain your lost confidence. If you are tired of hiding your smile, it might be time to act. The following dental treatments can restore your smile and your confidence.

Whitening for Yellow Teeth

Yellow or discoloured teeth attract the wrong kind of attention. However, in-office whitening can restore your teeth to their former pearly white glory in just two visits. Have a meeting with friends on Saturday? Visit your dentist on Monday and Thursday for two separate whitening sessions, and by Saturday you'll be laughing and smiling freely again.

Tooth Reshaping for Misshapen Teeth

Oddly shaped or positioned teeth in the smile zone make it difficult for you to be in the public eye without feeling self-conscious. Tooth reshaping is a fairly simple, fast process that involves the removal of tooth enamel in order to adjust the shape and size of teeth.

Composite bonding can also be used to help fill in gaps or repair chipped teeth.

Veneers for Gappy Smiles

These thin porcelain shells are a more expensive alternative to tooth reshaping. However, if you are tired of people commenting on the gap between your two front teeth, two veneers placed over your front teeth can close the gap and restore your confidence.

Dentures for Missing Teeth

Because of the negative associations that some people have with missing teeth -- that they are related to witches, brutes, or drug addicts -- missing teeth can ruin an otherwise beautiful smile. However, no matter how many missing teeth you have, a denture can help to close the gaps in your smile. These removable, acrylic plates can be taken out at any time and replaced when you need them. Dentures can also be combined with dental implants for a more secure fit.

No matter what age you are, your smile is an important asset and crucial to your self-esteem. Start planning to do something about your teeth today. Get in touch with a dentist and go over the options. In 6 months, your smile could once again be worth a thousand words.
