Smile Design

Smile aesthetics is a concept developed to explain the visual quality of the smile when people elicit emotions and interact with other people. The emotions generated through aesthetic interaction are completely opposite than intellectual reasoning. However, we use science to explain the “fabric” of aesthetics and how to create it.  In most cases, Nature offers an infinite supply of knowledge how to recreate aesthetics.

It is important for us, the clinicians, to understand what patients are experiencing while interacting with aesthetics. The key is taking the time to establish a communication with the patient so the personal preferences, the individual cultural and social perception of beauty can be discovered. Only then the doctor can tailor the treatment for a result that not only restores the form and function but is so well integrated that it is invisible.
