Smile Analysis And Designing

Analyse Your Smile:

You can yourself analyse your smile to know whether you need any smile makeovers.
Please stand in front of a wall mounted mirror in a brightly lit room.
The mirror should be of sufficient length, so that you can see your self completely.
Now smile in a normal way

  • Do you love the way your teeth look and the way you smile?
  • Are there any spaces between your teeth?
  • Do you have any missing teeth?
  • Do you have crooked, malpositioned teeth?
  • Are any of your teeth shorter than the other?
  • Are the corner teeth (canine) too prominent?
  • Do you have a gummy smile?
  • Have your gums receded or are they swollen?
  • Do you have any silver filling in your teeth?
  • Do you have any old crowns that do not match to your natural teeth?
  • Do you have teeth which are yellow, dark or stained?
  • When being photographed, do you smile naturally or is the smile restricted?
  • Do you shy from showing a full smile in front of strangers?
  • Are you embarrassed to visit a dentist due to the condition of your teeth?

If any of the answer to the above questions is YES then you require a SMILE MAKEOVER
Our Smile Design begins with a consultation with Dr. Gaurav and Dr Pranjali so that we understand how you see your smile now and what you want to achieve with your smile design and what kind of budget you have in mind.  A thorough set of diagnostic tools will be used to gather information about your smile, your gums, and your teeth. These tools will also provide ways to communicate with you about the possibilities for your smile.

The smile designing procedures can be classified under the following categories : -

  • Basic Cosmetic Dental Procedures : - Scaling & oral prophylaxis, tooth whitening, tooth-colored restorative procedures, dental bonding, veneers and dental jewelry.
  • Periodontal Procedures : - Management of gingivitis and periodontitis, gingival contouring, gingival de-pigmentation and surgical management of "gummy smiles".
  • Orthodontic Procedures : - To correct irregularity and mal-alignment of teeth.
  • Crown And Bridge Procedures : - Carried out to replace missing teeth/ strengthen or modify the shape of existing tooth/teeth by providing cap(s) over them.
  • Dental Implant Procedures : - To replace missing teeth.
  • Dentofacial Esthetic Surgery Procedures : - To correct the abnormal size / shape / positioning of jaws in order to achieve a good balance in facial proportions.

Factors That Influence The Smile Design Are : -
Your facial shape. For example, a long face may need to accentuate width to appear more oval. Someone with attractive features in the center of the face may need bold central incisors to draw attention to that center.

Your image aspirations. How do you want to appear to others? A sophisticated smile gives the appearance of more intelligence, maturity and judgment. A sexy smile gives the appearance of more warmth, energy and boldness.

Your age, or how old you want to appear. Longer central incisors make you appear younger. Also, whiter teeth make you appear younger. Conversely, a flatter smile or a more subdued color to the teeth make you appear more mature.
