Can I Objectively Evaluate My Smile?

esthetic smile design FayettevilleThis message from The Fayetteville Dentist is about improving your smile with cosmetic dentistry.

It is no secret that a beautiful, pleasing, healthy smile can be your most highly regarded physical attribute. After all, people notice your smile first thing. How do you know if your smile is detracting from your appearance?

There are many characteristics that detract from otherwise pleasing smiles. Missing teeth is a biggie. People who are missing teeth in the back of the mouth may mistakenly believe that the gap doesn’t show. They are usually wrong. When smiling, talking, laughing, or eating, a missing tooth definitely shows – even if the missing tooth is the very last molar.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile – even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned – and crooked teeth are commonly considered unattractive.

If you want an objective evaluation of your smile, how can you get one? You can’t see your smile from every angle when you look in the mirror. If you want an expert opinion on the attractiveness of your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist. There are a surprising number of design principals that are used in cosmetic dental smile makeovers. These include size, shape, alignment, proportion, color, and translucency. In addition, cosmetic dentists also consider the characteristics of the gums, lips, and facial features.

If  you’d like to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, call us at The Fayeteteville Dentist for an objective evaluation. We have extended evening and weekend hours that fit any busy schedule, and an office in Hope Mills. Call us today!
