The Essence of a Smile Makeover

A smile makeover transcends mere cosmetic appeal; it is a comprehensive approach to enhancing dental and facial aesthetics. The journey to achieving the perfect smile is unique for each individual, influenced by various factors that shape one’s perception of beauty. We prioritize understanding your aesthetic desires while ensuring they harmonize with biological and functional standards.

Key Considerations in Smile Design

Our approach to smile design is holistic, considering the smile as an integral part of the facial structure and influenced by dynamic elements such as the eyes, face length, and patient’s age. We address several critical aspects:

Smile Arc: The curvature of the maxillary incisors in relation to the lower lip plays a pivotal role in the smile’s aesthetic. We aim for a convex or curved arc, especially appealing in female patients, to achieve a harmonious smile.

Incisal Edge Position: The visibility of tooth structure at rest is crucial. Our goal is to reveal 2-4 mm of tooth for female patients and 1-2 mm for male patients, creating a balanced and natural appearance.

Ratio and Symmetry: The ideal width to length ratio of maxillary incisors falls between 75-85%. Symmetry across the central incisors is vital for a visually pleasing smile.

Gingival Margin Zeniths: The positioning of gingival margins and zeniths significantly affects the smile’s aesthetic. We strive for symmetry and proper proportions to enhance the pink to white ratio, addressing any noticeable asymmetries.

Midline and Diastemas: Aligning the dental midline with the facial center is essential for aesthetic coherence. We also assess and address diastemas based on their visibility and impact on the smile.

Gingival Exposure: Understanding the level of gingival exposure during a smile allows us to tailor treatments to each patient’s specific needs, from low to high smile lines.

Lip Support and Volume: Evaluating lip support and volume from both frontal and profile views helps us in planning treatments that enhance the facial aesthetics comprehensively.

Buccal Corridors: The appearance of buccal corridors is considered to ensure a full, yet balanced, smile without overly pronounced or restricted spaces.
