First impressions are so important. You meet someone and the first impression is the one that sticks in your mind. Before they even speak, if and how they smile speaks volumes. They could be in a good mood or a bad mood; they could be happy to meet you or could not care less. They could be brimming with self-confidence or they could be very self-conscious.
Patients often request some work to enhance their smile. From simple tooth whitening to an advanced, complete makeover. The patient pictured below told me that she hates her teeth. When she smiled, she covered her mouth with her hand to hide them. She had a very lively personality but she was being held back by her insecurities about her smile. Once I completed her makeover, she could not stop smiling and showing her friends her improved appearance.
The change doesn’t have to be as drastic. A high school senior complained that her teeth were yellow. Other than the color issue, her teeth were well shaped and positioned. After whitening, she was so happy she almost did cartwheels out of my office. For years after, she couldn’t stop thanking me.
This woman pictured below had a combination of implants and crowns and bonding, none of which was to her liking, and was tired of going from one dentist to another looking for someone to bring back her youthful smile. After careful planning and meticulous attention to detail, she looked in the mirror, then looked at me and said “finally!”
I ask my patients, “If there is something you would like to improve about your smile, what would it be?” It is amazing the different answers I get.
