A beautiful smile – What you should know?
There are few aesthetic factors of teeth and gums that are identified by researchers as those elements that can impact the smile. They are related to the size, shape, color of teeth, the visibility of gums and the shape of lips. The relationship between all these factors is what makes a smile more or less attractive. Cosmetic dental procedures can bring about changes in these esthetic factors. Following are some of the key areas cosmetic dentists concentrate on during a smile makeover process.
- Size and shape of visible front teeth
- Color of teeth
- Alignment of teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Visibility of gums
- Proportions of teeth

Smile Makeover Process
The smile makeover process involves various stages. The first stage is where we perform a thorough oral examination. We take pictures of teeth and impressions if necessary. Our cosmetic dentist asks questions related to what patients expect from the treatment. We make a note of the esthetic problems and set a treatment plan based on the needs. The smile makeover process may involve single procedure or more. We explain the treatment options to patients and help them take an informed decision. Following are some of the cosmetic procedures that can be part of the smile makeover process. It is important to note that when a tooth is being restored, though the treatment may have an aesthetic factor involved, the oral health of a patient is not compromised.
