Factors For a Smile

Factors For a Smile

Any understanding of aesthetics will discuss the idea of coherence – all the parts of an object or artwork must fit together to create the right overall impression. This is true whether the parts are meant to be pleasantly balanced (which is the usual case) or if they are deliberately meant to clash.

All the elements of an attractive object or artwork may contribute to the overall effect. Sometimes changing one element we change that overall effect; one element can make or break the end result. On the other hand we occasionally find that changing element of the whole makes no different. Changing one element will make no difference if all the other elements were not quite right to start with.

There are various elements of a mouth and its smile. All contribute to the overall effect.

Tooth colour

The tooth colour is most noticeable when something is wrong. We expect teeth to be bright white, and associate this with cleanliness. Bleaching can make dull looking teeth a very nice shade of white.

Smile Arc
The curve of the teeth. The row of teeth will usually look most pleasing if they gently curve upward.

Gum Ratio.

We usually show some gum line with our teeth. Too much gum can look unbalanced. But having a smile that is all teeth can also look unbalanced.

Spacing

Teeth look best when evenly spaced, almost touching with no gaps.

Overbite Slight

Our culture expects the upper teeth to be slightly more forward then the lower teeth. This is a very mild overbite. This alignment can be altered with orthodontics.

Midline

The front teeth should be in the centre of the face, though slight asymmetry does work well for some people.

Braces Dundas

Orthodontic treatment, including braces, will straighten teeth. This is especially effective when done in the teenage years as the patient will benefit from the improved teeth for their entire adult life.

Braces will make the teeth look neat and straight, and can improve the mechanical functioning so the jaw can move without issues.
