Smile is pleasing when the teeth are set in golden proportion to each other, meaning that there is a specific amount of teeth which should be visible when a person smiles. If somebody’s teeth are not optimally aligned, the whole smile looks disproportionate. The smile can thus be improved by either orthodontic treatment (braces) or by laminates/ veneers. It require thorough planning by a team of experts to give the lost confidence to the patient.
Smile can also be enhanced by closing uneven spaces between the teeth called ‘diastemas
Veneer and Laminates
A veneer is thin shell, wafer-thin (approx. 0,5 mm) of porcelain or composite that is bonded to tooth to improve its color and shape. They can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or dark teeth, protect teeth from damage. They are fixed permanently to the tooth’s front surface using a special adhesive method. The porcelain facing covers the visible surface of the tooth completely. The chemical bond between porcelain and enamel creates a translucent, tooth-shaded unit with perfect natural aesthetics. Even a dentist can have difficulty telling veneered teeth from untreated ones.

Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to improve the general look of a person’s teeth. It is primarily used in cases where the individual has what is commonly known as ‘gummy smile’. This is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth, usually the front teeth, and this can leave the length of the teeth looking too short, which can affect a person’s general desire to smile.
Such a condition may be caused due to genetics, health circumstances or as a result of certain high blood pressure prescriptions. This can have an effect on an individual’s self-confidence and may see them do their best not to smile in public. Thankfully, gum contouring is a dental treatment which is painless and able to solve the problem of ‘gummy smile’ through quick and painless treatment.
Orthodontics is a special discipline of dentistry concerned with aligning the teeth and jaws to improve one’s smile and overall oral health. “Ortho” means correct or straight, and “odont” means tooth. A dentist will recommend braces to improve the patient’s physical appearance and function of the teeth and jaws, if the teeth are crooked and malaligned, or the jaws are of unequal size. This condition is referred to as malocclusion, which comes from a latin word meaning ‘bad bite’. While the majority of orthodontic cases involve braces, there are alternatives that may be used for younger children or adults.

All-Ceramic crowns are distinguished by their excellent aesthetics. Light is not only reflected, there is also real transparency as seen in natural teeth. This effect makes the all-porcelain crown perfect for use in anterior areas, whereby minor form and alignment corrections are also possible.
A further advantage of the metal-free ceramic crown is the tooth-shaded margin, which need not be placed under the gum line. Thus, the crown margin does not irritate the gingival tissue and prevents gum recession.
