This a first of the series of articles we will be writing to educate our patients about SMILE DESIGN…
A FIRST IMPRESSION IS THE BEST IMPRESSION!!
A smile plays a major role in how we perceive ourselves and the impressions we leave on the people around us.
A Smile is Contagious and it can take you miles ahead in your journey to success. A pleasing smile always gives us an edge over others in our modern competitive society.
THE FACE IS A MIRROR OF THE MIND.
A Charming Smile can knock down barriers that stand between You and a confident lifestyle. And that is exactly what Smile Design does for you, it gives you the Self Confidence you need to Succeed.
WHAT is SMILE DESIGN?
Smile Design is a skilful blend of cosmetic science and art which helps us to “sculpt” or “design” your smile for you.
It involves the planning and visualisation of the desired end result of an aesthetic dental treatment.
It is not simply based on the aesthetic sense of the dentist or the dental technician but involves a complex design procedure guided by closely interrelated facial, smile, tooth and gingival harmony aspects and rules, taking into consideration the properties specific to the patient’s age group.

• You have stained teeth or dicoloured fillings.
• Your teeth are crowded, overlapping or crooked.
