SMILE DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

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.

AESTHETIC COMPONENTS OF A SMILE MAKEOVER

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 Rosean C

I am so happy with the results. In Australia a few years ago I paid a lot of money to have two crowns and the results were terrible. I have just had them replaced here and they now look fantastic. The staff at this clinic are wonderful.

Dentist are very skillful, gentle and they pay amazing attention to detail. Dr. Hung's clinic is very well equipped with modern dental instruments and facilities and offers the highest standard of dental treatment. I'm very happy with my porcelain crowns, veneers and RCT (Root Canal Treatment). On top of that all the teeth were treated without any pain. I have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend Dr. Hung's clinic to anybody that wants the highest standard of dental treatment. The most important is the factor that Dr. Hung will see you the day of your first treatment and he will check final results and will see you final day of your treatment . I appreciate that a lot. It shows his highly ethical approach and responsibility. Welcome to contact me any time. Kind Regards, Grace. Melbourne, Australia."Treatment Received : Porcelain CrownTotal Amount Paid : AU$5,000

Patient Review By Janie

I cannot say enough about the service we received by Dr Hung and the team here. My fiancé travelled to Vietnam for the sole reason to have his teeth fixed. I was able to communicate with them via e-mail and was kept up to date. They were even able to meet my fiancé at the airport. His teeth are wonderful and it has changed his life I would recommend Dr Hung to anyone who was thinking about getting dental work.
