Smile designing

A smile speaks a thousand words. Smiling is an act of a person’s ability and willingness to express emotions with the movement of their facial muscles and lips. The art of smile designing is a well-organized, systematic and modern approach done on patients to evaluate, diagnose and resolve aesthetic problems. It gives a new improved look to the patient’s smile. It is done by modifying specific and distinguished aesthetic elements
Smile designing can also be called a process of improving the appearance of the smile with the help of different dental treatments like composites, dental veneers, bonding, dental implants, teeth whitening and gums surgery (recontouring).
In older times, the process of making a beautiful smile was done with the help of animal tusks to sharpen teeth, curve their size, shape and appearance etc.

  2. Alignment and Spacing : Teeth which are half broken or cracked, overlapped and have a large space between each other can also be properly filled and covered with the help of cosmetic treatments
  3. Missing Teeth: Missing teeth always give a negative impression on beauty of smile. Whether teeth are missing from the front or back jaw; missing teeth increase the risk of bone loss, caries to other teeth and the health of gums.

Smile designing should be done with a conservative mind set involving less time, reasonable costs and more durability.  A multispecialty approach gives an individual an overall makeover.
