When you’re not completely satisfied & comfortable with your smile, it can affect not only your mood, self-confidence, and quality of life, but also the moods of others.

The Impact of Your Smile:

  • Starting in the womb – Smiling is our very first facial expression
  • Smiling has a direct positive effect on people’s mood – affecting neurotransmitters in the brain that stimulate positive feelings
  • A Smile is a universal form of communication that forms personal connections
  • When someone isn’t happy with their smile it can affect the amount they smile as well as impact their self confidence and quality of life

These are just some of the reasons to enhance and improve the appearance of your smile through a comprehensive & customized dental plan.

Factors that make up an Ideal Smile:

  • Function: An attractive & healthy smile also functions properly. When your bite is aligned and functioned you will have improved chewing ability.
  • Visibility: Ideally the four upper front teeth should be 100% visible when smiling
  • Shape: Teeth should fall into the guidelines for size and proportion to one another
  • Alignment Position: The mid-line of teeth should be aligned with the mid-line of the face, with both sides of the smile being symmetrical.
  • Gum line level & shape.
  • Size and color of your teeth.
