What Makes Your Smile Beautiful

What makes your smile beautiful?

Interestingly, only you can answer that.  Beauty is a very subjective concept and this also applies to your smile.  That is why developing a relationship with your dentist and the dental team is so important to achieving the outcome that you desire.  This can only happen in an atmosphere that is unrushed and comfortable.  The dental team needs time to get to know you and your goals for your smile makeover.  They also need experience and advanced training in dental aesthetics to successfully guide you in making good choices.

One size does not fit all.  Each patient’s treatment should be individualized.  You are unique with your own facial structure, skin, and eyes.  There are many issues that can affect the appearance of your smile:  disease, nutrition, occlusion (your bite), injury, personal habits, and of course your genetic makeup.  Your dentist should take all of these factors into consideration as he helps you develop a plan.

In order for you to best understand your options, your dentist should also have technology that aids you in understanding and visualizing the enhancements that are possible.  Your dentist will then offer alternatives and choices for reaching the course of treatment that will best achieve the look you desire and also provide long-term results.  Together you make the final decision.
