What is included in a Smile Makeover
A smile makeover combines a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
Esthetic Components of a Smile Makeover
In addition to the color, alignment and balance of your teeth in the aesthetic zone of your smile (the section of upper and lower teeth that show when you smile), there are several attributes of your teeth and smile that your cosmetic dentist will evaluate with you when planning your makeover. These include:
Long teeth lend a youthful appearance. A gummy smile also can make teeth appear shorter. A treatment for shorter teeth may include reshaping and lengthening.
The smile line is an imaginary line that follows the edges of your upper teeth from side to side, which ideally should be the same as the curve of your lower lip when you smile.
Tooth LengthTooth Proportions
Most people recognize a pleasing smile as one in which the two central front teeth are dominant and have a width-to-length ratio of 4-to-5.
