Smile design takes into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips, to develop your ideal smile. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customized according to your specific needs.

Dental Esthetics include the following components:

Tooth Color: Dark or discolored teeth may suggest an aged mouth. A beautiful smile comprises of bright, white teeth tends to a youthful appearance. Silver or amalgam fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-colored composite restorations, while teeth whitening can improve the color for stained or dulled teeth. Tooth color and shading are very important factors during our evaluation and preparation for various procedures (such as porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding and dental implants). Cosmetic dentists are skilled at finding the right balance between providing you with a brighter, whiter smile and maintaining a natural tooth color.

Alignment and Spacing: Teeth that are crooked, overlapping or have gaps between can be straightened and aligned if necessary through orthodontics or Invisalign, and can also be improve with veneers.

Missing Teeth: One or more missing teeth can affect the appearance of your smile, your bite and increase the risk of tooth decay. Replacing missing tooth is an integral part of oral health and facial esthetics. Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants, bridges or over-dentures.

Harmony and Balance: Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded to improve appearance, and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to improve the overall smile.

Fuller Lips, Smile and Cheeks: An unusual or aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain smile design procedures, including orthodontics and/or oral maxillo-facial surgery.

A cosmetic dentist will work closely with you and other specialists to develop a treatment that can achieve exactly what you want for your makeover. This treatment plan may consist of many cosmetic and functionally restorative procedures, potentially including teeth whitening, composite bonding, veneers, dental crowns, orthodontics (braces), oral maxillofacial surgery and gummy smile reduction.

There are several attributes for your teeth and smile that your cosmetic dentist will evaluate when planning your smile makeover. These include the following:

Tooth Length: Long teeth lend a youthful appearance. Aging produces wear and tear that often results in shorter teeth, and a gummy smile also can make teeth appear shorter. Smile design treatments for shorter teeth may include reshaping and lengthening the two front central teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers. If you have a gummy smile, your cosmetic dentist can modify the gum line and lengthen the appearance of the teeth using laser dentistry procedures. You may also be referred to a periodontics for crown lengthening if necessary.

Teeth lengthening can improve your overall facial appearance. For example, shapely, long, square teeth on a round-faced individual can provide a slimming effect.

Smile Line: 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. This standard point of reference for smile makeovers may be used to help determine how long your new teeth should be.

Tooth Proportions: Your cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth to determine if they are in correct proportion with each other. Most people recognize a good-looking smile as one in which the two central front teeth are dominant and have a width-to-length ratio of 4-to-5. This proportion guides the length and width of other teeth in the esthetic zone so that the smile line appears balanced.

Tooth Texture and Characterization: Cosmetic dentists performing smile makeovers are adapt at blending functionality and esthetics. An artistic dentist can characterize your crowns or veneers to create a more feminine or a more masculine appearance, in addition to matching the look and feel of natural teeth.

Patient Review By Charles B

I am especially pleased with the rapid scheduling of appointments. Additionally, the dental assistant worked with skill beyond what I had experienced before. Never was my mouth anything but clean during all the preparation for crown work. Both the dentist and assistant were also very skilled in working with a bearded patient, not something all dentists or dental assistants manage well. I found the dentist to be patient, cautious and exacting, taking time to make sure my bite was right after the installation of a bridge. This meant making as many as 20 adjustments until it was good..
