Million dollar smile

Your smile plays a major role in how you perceive yourself as well as in the impressions you make on the people around you .

Surveys have shown that more than any other physical feature like the eyes, hair or body, the smile is what both men & women find most attractive in other people. A charming smile can open doors and knock down barriers that stand between you & a fuller , richer life. 
 
If, on the other hand, you are dissatisfied with your smile, it may be holding you back from fully embracing life and it's opportunities. If you are not completely happy with your smile , perhaps it's time to get a new one .
            
          What is smile designing?
 
Smile designing is a process of improving the appearance of the smile through cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers ,composite bonding , implants & teeth whitening or bleaching.
Smile designing takes in to consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth color width length & shape . 
 
A typical smile makeover includes the following 
 
1) Tooth color 
  Silver fillings can be replaced with natural ,tooth coloured composite restorations. Teeth whitening or bleaching can improve the colour of stained teeth.
 
2) Alignment & spacing 
  Teeth that are crooked ,overlapping or have gaps between them can be straightened and aligned with braces ,crowns or veneers .
 
3) Missing teeth 
   One or more missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile as well as affect your bite & chewing . Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants, Bridges or removable partial dentures.
 
4) Harmony & Balance 
 Uneven ,chipped or cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded for an improved appearance and gummy smile can be recountoured to improve the overall look of the smile .
 
5) Depigmentation of gums 
 Darker gums or highly pigmented gums can be made lighter or to natural pink by soft tissue laser surgery .
 
6) Fuller lips ,smile and cheeks 
 An unshapely or aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain procedures like orthodontics or oral maxillofacial surgery.
 
7) Tooth length 
 Long teeth will give you youthful appearance .Aging produces wear & tear that results in shorter teeth .Gummy smile also can make teeth appear shorter. Gummy smile can be treated by  modifying the gum line & lengthen the appearance of the teeth using laser dentistry.
 
8) Smile line 
 It's a imaginary line that follows the edges of your upper teeth from side to side, which ideally should follow the same curve of lower lips when you smile .
 
  All the above options are available to an individual who wishes to have that Million dollar smile !!
 
  Keep smiling ☺
