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.
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.
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.
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.
