So, if you're embarrassed to smile. We're going to take pictures. We're going to co-diagnose that together, 'cause I don't know what you don't like about your smile or what you're embarrassed about. I mean, some patients'll come in, and it's a nick off a corner of a tooth. Others, it's like, it's a train wreck.
I want to know what is it that a patient doesn't like or what you don't like about your smile and what embarrasses you. Once we establish what's going on and what you're embarrassed about, then we're going to come up with a plan and that plan may be whitening. Other times, it may be the teeth are crooked and they're in bad position. Then we're going to talk about clear aligners. Then there's others that, you know, they want to be whiter than what the whitening did for them. They don't want to go through, they don't want to waste the time, they want it like, yesterday. So, if that's the case, now we're talking about veneers. We're talking about putting something as thin as contact over the front of the teeth to give them a better smile.
If you come into my office and you're embarrassed, we're going to offer you a lot of different options. I mean, it's going to start simple and then we can go into, depending on what you're looking for ... And really, all of those things can be done really quite painlessly. And some of them, you don't even have to prep the teeth. That's really pretty neat these days, with technology.
