What makes a Beautiful smile? It’s the smile that complements a person’s facial expression and appearance. This is not just looking frontally (facing the mirror); but also laterally (sideways).
When a person looks at the mirror directly, they usually notice the upper and lower six front teeth only. The request for aesthetic dentistry from the patient is usually in relation to the six upper and lower front teeth.
Unfortunately, this is not the whole story for a full smile, which normally requires a minimum of twelve upper and lower teeth to be in harmony with the gums, lips and the facial complexion both frontally and sagittal (sideways).
