Smile design is an effective procedure that combines many treatments that make it possible to achieve a personalized smile with the application of dentistry and art together. The number of patients applying for this method is increasing day by day.
First of all, a healthy smile is planned special to your personal needs. We will plan your smile design according to your age, face shape, gender, profession, and character. The most critical point in smile design is restoring your smile while preserving your naturalness and health.
The first step we will take when designing your smile is to determine a geometric shape that fits your facial features. This is because your characteristics give passwords to the desired shape of your teeth. However, male and female anatomy are different from each other.
In women, the transition areas of the facial lines should be much softer, and the eyebrows and nasal arches should be less distinguishing. In men, facial features appear much more outstanging and sharp. Forehead (upper face), nose (midface), and chin (lower face) proportions are entirely different from those of women.
In women, the corners of the teeth are also softer, and the two teeth in the middle are longer than those around them. There are minimal gaps between the corners of adjacent teeth. In addition, the smile line shows an upward curve. In males, the teeth lines are much more outstanging, and the end lines of the teeth also appear straighter. In addition, the smile line in men draws a much slower curve than in women.
Purpose of Smile Design
Smile design is designed to eliminate the bad discoloration of your teeth, the misalignment or inappropriate positions of one or more of your teeth, the gaps caused by your missing teeth, and the incompatibility of the apparent tooth and gingival ratio.
Also, this procedure ensures that your gums are appropriately leveled, removes the caves that occur on your face and lips due to teeth loss, and prevents you from having incompatible tooth lengths. Smile design regulates all these problems that cause deterioration in your aesthetic appearance.
What Treatments Does Smile Design Include?
Smile design is determined by the position and condition of your teeth. Therefore, we first treat your gum problems and decayed teeth. Then we determine multidisciplinary treatments according to your needs. These treatments include bleaching (teeth whitening), implants, pink aesthetics (gingival aesthetics), porcelain lamina, glass-ceramic and zirconium veneers, and orthodontic treatments.
How To Done Smile Design?
Your aesthetic expectations in smile design are significant to us. We will make plans after determining your problems with the measurements we take from your mouth. Then we will examine your face and mouth photos in-depth with our unique programs via computers. We will get your opinions by showing you the closest images that may emerge after the procedures. After these processes, if you don’t need orthodontic treatments, we will first correct the level problems in your gums.
If you have teeth loss, we will also consult to the implant procedure and, if necessary, other surgical procedures. Besides, we will provide you with teeth whitening procedure if needed after your healing process is over. Following this stage, we will solve your teeth’ structural and visual problems with composite fillings (composite lamina/bonding). If this method is insufficient, we will apply porcelain or zirconium veneers.
You may also need medical treatments to redesign your smile in some cases. For example, your smile can be made more visible with dermal filler or botox procedures on your face and lip areas.
What Factors Affect Smile Design?
When determining a personalized smile design for you, factors include your age, gender, condition of your lips, facial features, skin color, tooth alignment, and gums.
In How Many Sessions is A Smile Design Completed?
First of all, we can determine the treatment we will do for you by taking into account your current dental condition and oral health, and then we can tell you the number of sessions accordingly. Your treatment process may be completed in a few weeks, or it may take several months.
