Have you ever gathered for a group photo, only to smirk with your mouth closed instead of flashing a beautiful smile?

For some, smile anxiety can be to blame. Your dentist has helped many patients feel better about their smile through focused, custom care plans. Here are a few common causes of smile anxiety and some options for improving your pearly whites.

Causes of Smile Anxiety

Bad Breath

Bad breath can cause a person to stand away from a group of friends or co-workers, and even mumble their words. If you suffer from bad breath, there’s good news–it’s usually an easy thing to correct once the cause has been determined. Sometimes, dehydration, poor oral hygiene, or certain medications may be to blame.

Dull Teeth

Do yellow, dark, or stained teeth keep you from flashing your smile in photos? With in-chair teeth whitening, our team uses advanced technology to brighten smiles several shades in just one practice visit.

Missing Teeth

Some people try to keep their smiles hidden when they’re missing teeth–especially when it’s a front tooth. Luckily, there are a few different treatment options that can help revitali[z]e missing teeth. Depending on your unique situation, an implant or dental bridge may be the perfect solution.

Crooked Teeth

The alignment of your teeth can change at any point in your life. Even if you may have had braces at one point, shifting teeth can sometimes cause twists and turns in your smile. Ask us about our orthodontic options, like clear aligners!
