The Science of Smile

A smile, in every sense of the word, is just a simple reflex. But, there’s more to it than revealing your teeth and deliberately emanating a positive disposition. Some medical specialists and mind scientists use smiles as a metric for gauging someone’s health.

In normal context, a smile is known to be one of the most important social assets. This is why many undergo different procedures to improve the appearance of their teeth. For an onlooker, a good smile is quite difficult to deconstruct. But for cosmetic dentists like us, there are specific factors that make up a dazzling beam. These factors are what we work on to make sure our patients end up having a balanced and natural smile. Read on to learn more about these elements.

Incisor Reveal and Smile Arc

Ideally, 75-100% of your incisors should be visible in the space between your upper and lower lips when you smile. Cosmetic dentists usually draw an imaginary line from one corner of the mouth to the other when the patient is doing a full smile to determine if the incisors are revealed. When it comes to the arc of the smile, dentists see to it that the curvature of the smile is quite parallel with the lower lip.

The Lighting Effect

Lighting has a say on how beautiful your smile will get. When considering this factor, we work on the angle and the shape of your teeth. When your teeth are in an awkward angle, light will bend unevenly, which in turn, makes some teeth appear darker or smaller.

The Condition of the Gums

The condition of the gums affects the appearance of your smile. A smile may be perceived unattractive if it shows too much gum. In some cases, infections such as gingivitis can affect the colour and contour of the gum, which can make the smile appear unsightly.

Behind every smile is some science, which we take very seriously. This is why we offer products and services, such as Invisalign, dental implants, and gum treatments. To learn more of what we are capable of, contact us today or browse our other pages.
