When you look in the mirror, notice the corners of your mouth — go ahead, look in the mirror, tell yourself a good joke and observe. As the corners of the mouth go up into the smile, so too should our teeth have some slight semblance of a smile.
Not too big, short, dark or chipped and definitely not too thick or flat across or in a “negative smile”. Due to wear or other issues like abrasion or age wear, the front teeth can become too short and make your smile look frowning, sort of upside-down. If you are relaxed, your teeth may not show at all.
Teeth can be lengthened with crowns, bonding, or porcelain laminates (veneers). These can also be used to improve color, close spaces, improve slight crowding and add strength. So I hope you can see that cosmetic dentistry is much more than straight, white teeth. There are definite “rules” for dental beauty and the perfect smile. If you have any questions, call us to schedule your complimentary consultation.
