How can the dentist in Richmond improve self-confidence?

People who lack confidence in their smile sometimes feel there is nothing that can be done to improve this. However, the dentist in Richmond is a great place to start for those who wish to feel better about the appearance of their teeth and gums. Here at Sheen Dental, we work with patients of a variety of ages and backgrounds to help them achieve good oral health and a smile that they can feel proud of.

Many people underestimate how much a smile, which is not quite what it should be, can impact how they feel about themselves. This can have a knock-on effect in multiple areas of a person’s life; including personal relationships, socialising and even climbing the career ladder. At Sheen Dental, we help our patients to feel as confident as possible when it comes to the appearance of their teeth and gums.

Discoloured teeth

It is a common misconception that as we age, having stained or discoloured teeth is almost inevitable. Drinking tea, coffee and some soft drinks, as well as red wine, can all cause teeth to look past their best. A smoking habit can also cause staining and yellowing of the teeth. However, it is not the case that people have to blindly accept this and the inevitable dip in confidence that comes with it!

In some cases, all that is needed to improve the colour of the teeth is a thorough professional clean. People are often surprised at the marked difference this makes to their appearance, and at the simplicity of it! If there is a little more help needed, we can advise on whitening procedures that are very effective whilst also protecting the integrity and health of the teeth.

Missing teeth

Having a tooth or teeth missing can have a dramatic impact on a person’s confidence regarding their appearance. The great news is, no one has to put up with this! We work with patients to determine the best possible treatment for missing teeth, such as implants. Having such an issue resolved can make a big difference to how a person feels about the way they look.

Misaligned teeth

Some people miss out on having their teeth straightened as teenagers or young adults for a variety of reasons. Teeth that are crooked or overcrowded don’t just have an impact on the way a person looks; they can also be increasingly difficult to keep clean and plaque-free. Unfortunately, this can cause a person’s breath to be less fresh than it should be: which can also have a negative impact on self-confidence.

Patients who come to us with misaligned teeth will be presented with a range of options for treatment. We work with people to ascertain what will work best for their circumstances and lifestyle; as well as help our patients to achieve the best possible results.

For those whose smile is not what it should be, especially if it is affecting how they feel about their appearance; we offer a whole range of choices to help improve the teeth and gums. The difference it can make to a person is quite impressive, so talk to the dentist in Richmond to find out how we can help!
