A person’s smile is their ability to express a range of emotions with
the structure and movement of the lips and teeth. Have you ever
analyzed your smile? If so, and you are considering making esthetic or
cosmetic changes, you should consider an Esthetic Smile Analysis, a
highly organized and systematic approach that’s required to properly
evaluate, diagnose and correct esthetic problems more predictably.
With advances in technology, Esthetic or Cosmetic Dentistry has
become more of an art form that extends beyond the realm of just
beauty and teeth. A complete Esthetic Smile Analysis is essential to
ensure a biologically functional dentition that also looks aesthetically
pleasing. Re-creating or designing a new smile is not only limited to
changing the shape and look of the teeth. In fact, it extends beyond the
mouth to include a complete analysis of the face, lips and supporting
structures. Emphasis must also be placed on vertical and horizontal
facial dimensions along with alignment of corporal and dental midlines
in order to design and create a smile that truly complements your face
and personality. In conclusion, with advances in dentistry we have many
more options to help achieve a more aesthetic smile. If you’re concerned
about the effect your smile has, be sure to schedule an Esthetic Smile
Analysis with your dentist today!

I know, I know. You wanted some
miracle elixir straight from the
heavens that bleached your grill
blanco with zero investment or
energy. The #1 way to keep your
teeth shiny-white is to brush after you eat or drink anything,
especially staining edibles like your thrice-daily cafe con leche.
We heard this one from the star-
studded authority on all matters
aesthetic: Catherine Zeta Jones.
Mash up strawberries and brush
with them twice a week, rinsing
thoroughly. Remember to floss again afterwards to remove any
stowaway seeds that can get caught in your gumline.
That yellow spice that stains all your
clothes after a late-night curry binge
can also add luster to a sallow smile.
Brushing with turmeric can be off-
putting, but after a few weeks you’ll
be flashing your fangs with confidence!
