Questions about aesthetic dentistry
1. WHAT ARE THE SUCCESS CRITERIA OF A NEW SMILE?
The color of the teeth should be bright but not "fake". The length-to-width ratios of the teeth should be harmonic. We do not want square teeth or even oblique.
The anterior teeth of the upper jaw should be seen when the lower jaw comes effortlessly into a resting position. At younger ages the upper teeth should be quite large (2-4 mm), while at older ages 1 mm is enough. The upper central segments should be in the middle of the face while the lateral sectors should be slightly smaller than the central segments
The corners of the teeth should be rounded and all the teeth have translucency, which also have our natural teeth.
The lower front teeth should look as small as possible.
The position of the gums of the anterior teeth of the upper jaw should be in a specific position relative to the upper lip so that the less gums appear.
