People will come in and they’ll say, “You know, I need to get these teeth really fixed up.” And, again, its kind of like you need to ask the patient, “What is it about them you don’t like?” You need to find out ‘cause you don’t just want to jump in and do something. You need to find out what they’re thinking, and there’s a lot of available things. I think, probably the biggest thing a patient will say, “My teeth are yellow.” That’s simple. You can do some bleaching with that or some whitening.
Teeth that may be not aligned properly, an ideal solution for that would be orthodontics. You could do veneers on those type of teeth. But what you’re doing is, if they’re good, virgin teeth, you hate to see teeth like that marred up by preparation. Orthodontics, you know, if its an adult, there’s treatments like Invisalign if they don’t want to have the obvious metal braces and wires going on.
Another thing, somebody would say, “Hey, I’ve got these pointed teeth here.” So there’s cosmetic contouring, recontouring that you can do too. And just the slightest little bit can make a huge difference, it’s just amazing. They go, “Oh, wow. I didn’t know you could do that,” kind of thing. And so, that’s another option.
Now, to go to this other side here, somebody’s got a lot of composites, the teeth are breaking down, there’s a lot of standing and stuff like that, yeah, you can try the biting, you can try the composite stuff, but it’s just like, you know, that’s not going to be the most ideal thing. That’s where you get into the more aggressive stuff and you start doing some porcelain or composite veneers.
