Everyone is unique in the sense that we all have different styles and features. Whether we realize it or not, we make efforts to flatter ourselves. Haircuts can be cut to frame our face. Makeup can be used to contour our bone structure. We dress to complement our body’s curves. It’s human nature to desire being seen in the best light. These fashion/beauty tricks are as old as your great-grandmother’s grandmother, yet they are still relevant across the world. With all these tricks in mind, does it make you wonder if your smile complements your facial features?
If you are, then keep reading. When considering cosmetic dentistry, there are key factors to keep in mind. For instance, if you have a round face, you know that long layered hairstyles look best on you. Smiles have similar guidelines. If your face is smaller, it wouldn’t be flattering to get long, square-shaped veneers. That style can come off as too dominant and could throw off your facial proportions. If your face is round, you should go for those longer veneers, as they would create a slimming effect to your face. If your face is thin, you want to create a broader smile effect. You would avoid thin, long teeth, as they will only make your face look longer and thinner. Lastly, if your face is square-shaped, rounded teeth will help soften your smile.
Designing your smile is based on your personal preferences and what you want others to see. “When I sit down with a patient interested in cosmetic dentistry, I always ask them what their smile goals are,” Dr. Evan Ridge explained.
