Abstract


Introduction: Dentists can expect differences in satisfaction with dental appearance and aesthetics depending on the age, gender, and level of education of the patients. And there should be a close communication between the patient and the dentist when planning an aesthetic treatment and they concluded as well that aesthetic improvement will improve the quality of life. Materials and methods: This is a pilot study. An interview questionnaire-based survey was conducted to 132 patients conveniently. Each patient was requested to sign an informed consent and the security of their personal data was guaranteed. Results: Male and female participants exhibited a significant difference in a few variables including current satisfaction level, confidence in smiling after receiving the treatment, change in texture and opting for future esthetic treatments. Conclusion: Males were reported to be more confident in showing their teeth and smiling freely as compared to the females. This difference was statistically significant.

Keywords: Dental patients, Satisfaction, Dental esthetics, Appearance.
