People avoid regular dental care for a variety of reasons. Some people have dentophobia, a fear of receiving dental work. Others feel they can’t afford it or are just too busy.
If your teeth are stained, yellowing, and unsightly, then the impact on your life can go far beyond a reluctance to smile. Your self-confidence and self-esteem can be slowly whittled away, and it’s hard to feel truly happy if you’re always afraid that showing it with a grin will cause you embarrassment.
