If a patient came in and said they were embarrassed to smile, I would try to present them with several different options because there are a lot of different ways to fix your smile and you need to explain each method: how long it lasts, how much it costs, because there’s many different things that you can do. So it’s hardly ever an easy solution, and it’s important that you try to explain the options to them and let them help decide what to do with their own teeth. You know, one thing I can say is that when somebody comes and sits in the chair and says something like, “I’m embarrassed to smile,” we listen to what they say. I mean, it’s something to be able to go to the dentist and, “I’ll have work done, but the dentist never really sat down and said, ‘gee, Bob, what do you wanna do with your teeth?’”
