Smile Design

Smile design is the ability to provide smiles that are special to the face by applying dentistry and art together. First of all, a healthy smile plan is made together with your personal wishes and the recommendations of your physician. Smile design is planned according to your age, gender, and face shape and other factors.

The most important point of smile design is that your smile is restructured while maintaining your health and naturalness. When starting the smile design we need to first determine which geometric shape your face line fits. Because the lines on the person’s face gives the necessary information of what form the teeth should be in. The anatomy of men and women are completely different from each other. In women, the transitions are softer, while the nose and eyebrow arches are also fainter. In men, facial features are seen more sharply and prominently. The ratio of forehead, nose and jaw tip differs with the faces of women. In females, the corners of the teeth are softer, and the two teeth in the middle are longer than the teeth on the side. There are also tiny gaps between the corners of the neighboring teeth. In addition, the laughter line shows an upward curve. In men, the lines of the teeth are more pronounced and the neighboring teeth are seen more flat. In addition, the line of laughter in men comes in a straighter way than in women.

The Three Types of Smiles

In general, smile expressions are divided into three. The first is the attractive smile, the second is the intellectual smile, and the third is the sporty smile. For the attractive smile, the front teeth need to be noticeably longer than the side teeth. Designing your front teeth in this way gives you a young, dynamic and attractive smile. For intellectual one, teeth are lined up on a straight line. This smile gives your face a mature and knowledgeable expression. With a sporty smile, your middle incisors should be slightly longer than the side cutters. This smile will give you a heartfelt, unusual and warm expression.
