At Art of Dentistry Institute, we evaluate not only the health and function of the mouth, but also every aspect of the teeth in relation to the gums, lips, and shape of the smile in order to achieve the best aesthetic result.
Any one or a combination of a few of our procedures can accomplish this, including:
- Gum Contouring
- Teeth Whitening
Dr. Hawary a cosmetic dentist in Irvine, CA can give you a smile makeover that will bring balance and symmetry to the entire face. A smile makeover doesn’t only mean a beautiful and rejuvenated smile, however additional benefits include:
- More attractive Smile Line
- Slight Lift to the Upper Lip (when needed)
- Overall Support in the Lower Third of the Face
There are many aspects that contribute to a well-designed smile. Depending on the patient’s facial and dental analysis, we will determine if treatment will involve the six anterior teeth or if it will extend to include the posterior teeth.
We evaluate the following elements of the smile to determine each patient’s treatment plan:
- Overall symmetry
- Pleasing length
- Proper brightness
- Adequate fullness
How to Create a Pleasing Smile
First, the imaginary line that runs between the eye pupils should be perpendicular to the dental midline ( midline between the two central incisors).
The vertical dental midline should be perpendicular to the incisal edge of teeth.
In order to create midline symmetry, the central incisors should be mirror images of each other.
We use the “golden proportion” and various other proportion tools designed for the front teeth to ensure that the lateral incisors and canines fall into harmony with the central incisors.
We ensure that the axial inclinations of each tooth is directed toward the midline for a more esthetic smile.
Length Of Your Teeth
Next, we will evaluate the length and width of the the teeth. The appropriate size of the teeth also depends on the amount of space available to maintain a proper bite.
Generally, a width-to-length ratio of 78 percent is the most aesthetically pleasing.
Brightness of Your Teeth
We then evaluate the color of the teeth and determine if whitening treatments will be beneficial.
Fullness of Your Smile
Lastly, we evaluate the dark corridors of the smile and determine the treatment option that could give the smile a fuller appearance.
