In brief: Not sure
Do you mean someone that has had an accident or someone that went to a dentist and suffered trauma? I would imagine that any trauma can leave an emotional scar. Hopefully the person can rationalize the situation and overcome any negative personality traits that do not work well in their lives.

In brief: Any
Any trauma that affects appearance can cause personality change such as depression etc.
..Seeing a dentist to address your dental concerns as well as speaking to a professional about the personality change would be a step in the right direction.

In brief: What type of trauma?
Is the trauma caused by a dentist? Or by a car accident? Or some form of physical abuse? Personality changes can occur following any number of types of trauma.
...Such as ptsd... See a doc to evaluate cause and possible treatment. For a simple dental fear, hypnosis, nitrous, oral antianxiety meds can be used.
