The compatibility of factors such as lip level, length of teeth, gingival level, tooth color, tooth alignment, the harmony of lips and teeth when we laugh, and the laugh line, one by one and with each other, is of great importance in performing aesthetic smile analysis.
How to make a smile design
While designing the smile, the aesthetics of the area formed by the teeth (white aesthetics) and the aesthetics of the area formed by the gums (pink aesthetic) are evaluated. For this purpose, first of all, it is evaluated at which level the gingiva should be, which teeth will be included in the design, and how it will look in the end with a special white filling on the teeth. Planning is done on the condition that health is at the forefront. Afterwards, the tooth-gingival-bone levels of the teeth are examined clinically and radiographically and treatment is started with the consent of the patient.
How many sessions does the smile design take?
The number of sessions may vary according to the treatment to be performed according to the current condition of the patient. The treatment can sometimes be completed in a single session or in a few weeks.
When we want to have a smile design, do we have to have our teeth cut and veneered?
It is not always necessary to cut and veneer teeth for smile design. Generally, your aesthetic expectations can be met with easier and more protective methods such as composite laminates, bonding, recontouring or whitening.
