What Does My Smile Say About Me?

Did you know that a smile is what both men and women find more attractive in another person? A healthy, bright, straight smile will give you confidence and boost your professional and social life and also allow you to clean more effectively at home. This article will help you assess your smile and find out what it says about you? If you are not happy with your smile you can visit us at Artiste Studios – L’Orthodontiste where we will help you achieve the smile that you are after.

Lip Line: When you smile lightly your lips should allow your front teeth edges to show. If that is not the case it may appear as if you have no teeth giving you an older looking smile. Why has that happened? Our teeth wear with age but this can also be accelerated by grinding and clenching.

Length and Width of central teeth: A youthful smile is one where the two central incisors are longer than the laterals and the canines are at the same length as the centrals. However having central incisors that are a lot longer than the laterals creates a “bunny look”. An older looking smile is one where all the front teeth appear to have the same length.

Wide central incisors or narrow lateral incisors can make the face look fatter whereas overall narrow front teeth can create the illusion of a longer face.

Spacing Vs Crowding: Gaps, especially between front teeth can create a distraction making people look at your teeth more than your face. Closing the gap between your teeth can therefore have an effect in your appearance as the distraction will no longer be there allowing people to look at the whole of your face without focusing at the gap. Similarly, crowded teeth can also be the centre of attention. In addition crowded teeth are more difficult to clean making your dentition more susceptible to decay, gum disease, discolouration and even tooth loss.

No Drilling - No Pain Dental Care

Going to the dentist is often associated with painful tooth drilling. But with our new innovative decay treatment this is no longer the case. So far, regular dental visits have allowed for decay to be detected early but that doesn’t mean that the drilling was avoided. However now, early decay can be treated painlessly and drill free too.

What is tooth decay?

Tooth decay is the progressive destruction of the tooth enamel which if left untreated can lead to cavity formation. Regular dental visits ensure early diagnosis and treatment of decay while effective tooth brushing acts as a preventing measure against it.  But there are areas that are difficult to clean making them more susceptible to tooth decay and these are the interdental spaces of our teeth. It is therefore essential to use interdental aids when brushing and have a professional Diamond Clean every six months.

Demineralisation is the start of early decay

The first indication of decay is a whitish-brown area on the enamel surface of the tooth which is an area of demineralisation ultimately leading to cavity formation. This area is a pore system that allows bacterial acids to penetrate further into the tissues. Our new innovative treatment stops bacterial penetration by filling the pores with a special resin ensuring that early decay is arrested without having to drill the tooth and compromising healthy tooth tissue.

Healthy Gums, Healthy Smile

Imagine your teeth being a beautiful painting then the gums would be the frame around it. This means that a nice healthy frame will make your smile look even better. It is therefore important to make sure that your gums are healthy so as to support and bring out your beautiful smile. That is achieved by brushing efficiently your teeth which not only ensures that your teeth are healthy but your gums as well.

What do healthy gums look like?

Healthy gums are well defined and pink. You should know however that the shade of healthy gums can vary according to the ethnic background and skin tone.

What happens if I have a gum condition?

Gum disease also known as gingivitis is a condition affecting the gums and if left untreated can progress to periodontitis which involves the bone supporting the teeth. An untreated gum condition can have detrimental effects to your smile causing recession of the gums and destruction of the supporting bone which can lead to loosening of teeth and eventually tooth loss.

Have a Younger Looking Smile

A healthy and attractive smile can make you look younger. As we age our teeth become chipped, discoloured and worn which contributes to our appearance. Cosmetic dentistry can take years off your smile and give you back confidence.

What makes a smile look aged?

As years go by the edges of our teeth wear until all our teeth have the same length. Our muscles lose their tone making our upper lip cover more of our upper teeth and at the same time the lower lip revealing more of our lower teeth. In addition our teeth become darker in colour giving the appearance of an aged smile.

How do I get a younger looking smile?

Top Tips for Keeping Your Smile Bright after Teeth Whitening

You've just had your whitening done and now want to make sure that those stains don't come back. As your dentist has warned you, tooth whitening is not permanent and in some cases there is relapse but this is natural and should be gradual. However this can be accelerated by the consumption of staining agents.
