Your smile is among your most valuable personal assets. It can brighten a person's day, ease a
difficult situation, or speak volumes without you ever saying a word. It also helps define your image,
and influence others' opinions of you. In the past, people had little choice but to accept the smiles
that nature gave them. Thanks to advanced techniques and improved dental materials, that is no longer the case.
Today's dentistry is an art form as well as a medical practice. At Vanguard Dental in Springfield, we offer a full range of cosmetic procedures. Improving your smile may be as simple as teeth whitening, or as complex as a full smile makeover. The first step is a consultation to discuss your goals, and a comprehensive evaluation to determine what can be accomplished. We will then work with you to design the smile of your dreams, and choose the best procedures to turn that dream into a reality.
When you see an especially attractive or especially dull smile, do you know what sets it apart? You might notice that the teeth are nicely aligned and bright. Yet you have seen other straight white smiles, which lack that special charm, that “wow” factor. What makes the difference? Actually, it is many things. Smile design is a complex meeting of art and science.
Just a few of the many factors considered include:
- Facial esthetics – Muscular and facial considerations are different for each individual. The shape and movement of your lips, cheeks, and other facial features affect the appearance of your smile.
- Gingival esthetics – Although the teeth are the focal point of the smile, the gums provide the frame for the work of art.
- Microesthetics – The smallest details, such as the subtle color variations and the way that tooth edges are shaped, can make a big difference.
- Macroesthetics – Details matter, but so does the big picture. The size and shape of your eyes, nose, and whole face, as well as the distance between your mouth and other features will have an effect on the ideal proportions of your teeth.
