I'm Embarrassed to Smile: Can You Help?

If you’re embarrassed to smile, take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. Statistics show that up to 40% of Americans are embarrassed to smile and would like to change something about their teeth. Whether you want to make your teeth whiter, straighter, or are looking for more significant changes, there are several options available.

At Scott Young, DDS, our dentists offer a range of cosmetic and general dentistry services at our office in The Woodlands, Texas.

General and cosmetic dentistry services to improve your smile

The most common issues that make people embarrassed to smile include:

Whether you have dental damage or just want to fix your teeth for cosmetic reasons, there have never been more options available. Many cosmetic dentistry procedures are now minimally or non-invasive and can be completed with just a few short trips to our office. 

Professional teeth whitening

Stained and discolored teeth rank high on the list of the complaints many people have about their smiles. Even if your teeth are otherwise healthy and straight, a less than pearly white smile can have a negative impact on your self-esteem and your social and professional life as well. 

The good news is that whitening your teeth by a few shades can dramatically improve your smile and even make you look younger and more confident. 

Veneers

Veneers are the perfect treatment to make minor changes or to get a complete smile makeover depending on your needs and goals for your smile. Cosmetic dental veneers can fix many dental problems, from making your teeth whiter to changing the size and shape of damaged teeth. 

Dental implants

Tooth loss is a major oral and general health problem for millions of American adults. Dental implants are the closest restoration to a natural tooth. Dental implants replace both the root and the crown of a missing tooth and can be used to replace a single tooth or to attach to dentures. 

Implants fix the cosmetic and oral health problems associated with tooth loss. If you’re in good health and have enough jawbone density to support an implant, dental implants may be a good tooth replacement option for you. 

Living with dental imperfections and oral health issues can be difficult, but you don’t have to settle for a less than perfect smile.
