What is Smile Design?
Smile design is an often overlooked, but equally as important, aspect of oral health care. Your smile is the first thing you present to the world, so it is important that it not only feels good but looks good too. Smile Design is the process of mapping the teeth to identify the areas that just don’t look right and planning a course of treatment to create an ideal smile.
Factors to take into consideration when planning Smile Design
Multiple factors of a patient’s smile need to be taken into consideration, before creating a course of treatment. Things like facial proportions, tooth display ratios, and upper lip dimensions will all affect the overall aesthetics of the smile. However, it is important to remember that the most crucial factor is what the patient wants for their smile – It is up to the dental professionals to create a smile that will have the patient leaving happier and more confident than when they walked in.
How your patients will benefit from Smiles Design
It has been proven that smiling has a direct effect on our mood and those around us, so patients need to feel excited about sharing their smiles with the world!
