If someone says they're embarrassed to smile, then I always start with the question of what embarrasses you? What part of your smile embarrasses you? For some people it's the color, for some people it's a chip, or crack, or even missing tooth. The most important thing is to understand what embarrasses you, because that's what we want to help them fix. Depending upon what they state, that how I would approach helping them to be more confident about their smile.
If it's something as simple as the color, then we would talk about whitening or conservative options. If it's something that's missing, then we would talk about how can we replace the tooth, and if it's 'Hey, I just want the perfect smile', then we would talk about cosmetic veneers, or bonding, or whatever treatment may be appropriate to help them attain the smile that they want.
