Do You Worry About Smiling With Bad Teeth?

How we feel about our teeth and smile can really affect our confidence and it has been found that around a third of adults are unhappy with their smile. If you find it difficult to smile in public or around people that you don’t know, then this could be a sign of smile anxiety. Smiling with bad teeth and the subsequent smile anxiety that comes with it is one of the most common dental worries and can have a huge impact on your day to day life.

Your teeth and smile are some of the first things that people notice about you, so it is important to have confidence in your smile, but 27 of adults try to avoid showing their teeth when they smile, 18 feel the need to cover their mouth when they smile and 22 of adults avoid having their photo taken. Here at Dental Solutions, we understand that smiling with bad teeth can have an impact on the way you feel about and see yourself, so if you worry about smiling with bad teeth, here are some ways that we can help you.

The “Hollywood” Smile

Tooth whiteness has become a sign of having “healthy teeth” in recent years, which is largely down to the iconic Hollywood smile that we see so often. Just because someone has white teeth doesn’t mean that they have healthy teeth or gums! If your teeth are stained or discoloured and this is something you worry about, then tooth whitening can help to bring back their natural sparkle.

The team here at Dental Solutions will help advise you on the best shade of whitening that suits your facial features and assess the overall health of your teeth and mouth before any teeth whitening treatment. We have a range of teeth whitening treatments available, depending on your desired final results and when you want your results by so that you no longer need to worry about smiling with bad teeth due to their colour.

Tooth Loss

If you have a missing tooth, then this can be a source of anxiety and lack of confidence when it comes to smiling. The good news is that thanks to dental advancements, there are now plenty of treatments and options available when it comes to replacing missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants involve a titanium root being placed into the gum and then a porcelain replacement tooth is bonded to the site after a short healing process. If you worry about smiling with bad teeth due to tooth loss, then this can now be easily rectified due to the latest dentistry technologies and procedures.

Crooked Teeth

As we age, our teeth can often move positions and become crooked, which can leave people to feel self-conscious about their smile and the appearance of their teeth. At Dental Solutions, we have some treatments available to solve the issue of crooked teeth, from teeth straightening solutions to cosmetic procedures such as composite bonding and veneers to help restore the look of a full smile. Our team of expert dentists can help you to choose the right treatment plan for crooked and damaged teeth and help you achieve a beautiful smile that you can be proud to show off.

Combating Worries About Smiling With Bad Teeth

If you’re self-conscious about smiling with bad teeth, then it is important to remember that your smile doesn’t define who you are. If you are interested in correcting your smile, then contact us today and arrange a consultation with our team of dentists so that we can help you get your full and confident smile back!

We also have a smile makeover event where you can have an initial consultation with our team and discuss we can help to eradicate your smile anxiety for good.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
