Are you embarrassed about your teeth?

ALL ARTICLES ^  


If you’re in Adelaide and you are embarrassed about your teeth it may be for one of two reasons…

Firstly,
you are embarrassed because you haven’t been to a dentist for quite a while and you’re worried that the dentist may give you a hard time, or

Secondly, you are genuinely scared to smile, you hate having your photograph taken or showing your teeth because you are conscious of how they look and are really embarrassed by them.

You are not alone. Many people have not seen a dentist for many years because they have had bad experiences in the past or trouble getting numb. We understand. We help people just like you all the time. We’ll listen to your concerns, make sure you’re completely numb, and treat you with compassion and respect.

Almost every day we see people who have hated their smile and have refused point blank to have their photograph taken or be in any situation where people may see their teeth. Frankly some of them have just hated the way their teeth looked… and we’ve been able to help them.

Embarrassed about your teeth?

You’re not alone. Many people, for many reasons, are embarrassed about their teeth. So embarrassed that they try to hide even the natural act of smiling, for fear that others may notice or comment. If you have a situation like this, and you feel your teeth are holding you back both socially, and maybe even professionally, we can help.

Whatever your problem, there’s a remedy. For example, simple problems like:

1. stained or discoloured teeth can often be fixed with a thorough cleaning, then treated with a whitening process that will get your teeth their whitest possible colour.
2. It's possible your teeth are crooked and overlapping on one another. That can often be taken care of in as little six months by fitting them with specially designed, comfortable braces.
3. Missing teeth? That situation can be cured with either dental bridges, or implants. If you have a problem with missing teeth, it’s better to have that taken care of as soon as possible. The longer the 'gaps' exist, the greater the probability your other teeth will 'drift', towards the empty space. This can cause severe misalignment, which will simply aggravate your existing condition.
4. Chipped teeth, or teeth weakened from decay, can be crowned with materials that exactly match the colour of your existing teeth. This can sometimes be done with a single visit.


It comes down to this: What is a beautiful smile worth? The patients we’ve treated will all tell you that it was worth every cent, and in fact, cost a lot less than they expected. Remember, your smile is a part of you that you share with friends, family, and colleagues every day. An attractive smile creates confidence!

Let us help you get it back!

We practice ‘blame-free dentistry’. You will be listened to without criticism or judgement. There is no need to feel embarrassed about your previous dental visits. We are here to help you, not to make you feel bad. As well as working out what you want your teeth to be like, we know that taking the time and listening to your experiences and concerns about your previous dental visits will allow us to understand things better.

Then we can be sure to repeat all of the good things from your previous dental visits, the ones that made you feel more comfortable and relaxed. Also by learning about the things you found unpleasant or painful we can be sure never to repeat them.

So, if you’re not happy with your smile and want to improve it just ring us today to see what we can do for you.
Secondly we will explain things to you in everyday language: the condition of your teeth, why they have developed the problems they have, and what options are available to provide the results you want for your teeth. We will be open and frank and discuss the pros and cons of each treatment as well as give you an estimate of the time needed and the fees involved.
