Many people are dissatisfied with their smile but have difficulty pinpointing the problem areas.

Here are some suggestions. Looking directly into the mirror, smile normally and ask yourself these simple questions:

  • Are you happy with your appearance of your smile/teeth/gum?

  • Are your gums red and swollen?

  • Do you show too much gum when you smile?

  • What you don't like about your smile?

  • Do you have crooked teeth?

  • Do you have any noticeable spaces between your teeth?

  • Are you missing any of your teeth?

  • Are your teeth discolored?

  • Do your front teeth have discolored fillings?

  • Does your smile seem narrow? Does it include only the front six teeth?

  • Do the teeth look short or worn flat?

  • Are silver-mercury fillings causing your back teeth to look gray or black?
