Smile improvement is one way people can improve their self-confidence and self-image. How to improve a smile can mean very different things to different people. That is why a consultation at our dental office in Edmonds can be so valuable.
Depending on the individual, they may be thinking of a variety of way to improve their smile:
- Straighter teeth
- Whiter teeth
- Less space between teeth
- Metal sealants replaced
- Repair of a chipped tooth
- Dental implants
- and more!
During the consultation, we complete a thorough dental exam, review with the patient their current dental situation, their expectations for change and their options for reaching their goals. We also discuss the time and investment that they should expect to make the improvements.
We hear all too often that “I was born with this set of horrible teeth just like my dad” or “I have bad luck with my teeth”. Because of advancements in dental care, we take a different approach and explore the possibilities. Some patients are only ready to start with a small change — others want a total smile makeover. Both choices are great — as long as we have explored the options and educated our patients, they will make the right choices for themselves.
When we say the word smile, think about smiling or see someone else smile — what is a very common reaction? A smile of course! That is why smile improvement is such an important part of what we do here at Avenue Dental Care in Edmonds!
