What is a smile design?

For making a perfect smile, you should concern all items which can affect your smile. If the form of your face, lips and the size, shape, and color of your teeth follow facial rules, as well as the coordinate of your facial parts, can provide you a perfect smile. The two big front teeth in the upper jaw (central incisors) and lateral incisors and two canine teeth on each side of the lateral incisors are visible in a perfect smile.

In a beautiful smile, the edges of the upper teeth should be parallel to the lower lip.

The symptom of aging is the less visibility of the frontal teeth of the upper jaw and over time, these teeth don’t show when smiling. So specialist orthodontist tries to reveal these teeth which are related to youthfulness. Although there is a general formula, men’s incisor teeth usually less expose than women. Men’s upper teeth are more visible while smiling.

  • Aligned and lined up teeth
  • Tooth color
  • Tooth size
  • Smile with confidence

Smile arc

In an ideal and perfect smile, the edges of upper teeth should be parallel to lower lip when smiling. A special orthodontist is able to remove any abnormal space or excessive overlap between these two arcs with tooth orthodontic.

Negative space

The dark space between corners of the mouth which are visible during a smile called negative space. This space displays in all smiles in different ranges. Inappropriate sizes of dark space, depending on teeth size and arc width, have a negative effect on your smile.

Width of the perfect smile

In a thoughtful smile, the edges of frontal teeth are placed in one direction and it is a sign of intelligence and expertise.
