Smile aesthetic is the process of making teeth and gums that have deteriorated aesthetically due to various reasons as natural and beautiful as possible, taking into account the face shapes and needs of the patients. It is to design a person’s smile aesthetically with combined operations such as zirconia coating,implant,dental filling, whitening, gum treatment,dental bridge, tooth length adjustment, and lip shaping. When it comes to oral care, the answer to issues like toothaches, bad breath, and tooth loss comes to mind, but smile aestheticsassociated with teeth and gums also play a significant role in our lives today. Decayed teeth, gingival disorders, teeth misalignment, abnormal coloration, and tooth loss can all have a negative impact on people’s social lives. Even if the person sometimes has healthy teeth, s/he may want to improve the disproportion of teeth and gums, shape, or deformities in an aesthetic sense. A beautiful smile will support the person psychologically, while at the same time it will create a better impression on the people around.
Dental Aesthetics (White Aesthetics) Applications in Smile Aesthetic
- Aesthetic Composite and Ceramic Dental Fillings (Inlay-Onlay Applications)
- Composite Lamina Applications (Bondings)
- Porcelain Laminates (Lamina Veneer Applications)
- Zirconium Crowns
- Full Ceramic Crowns (E-Max Applications)
- Three Dimensional Digital Dentistry Applications (CAD/CAM Applications)
Gum Aesthetics (Pink Aesthetics) Applications in Smile Aesthetic
First of all, it should be ensured that the gums are healthy.For this reason, gingival treatment, which should be done every 6 months, is done. Because healthy gums should be pink and firm. Repairments made to bleeding, swollen and red, that is, infected gums will not be healthy. Gum treatment includes cleaning the calculus on the existing gingiva and under the gingiva and polishing the teeth. After making sure that the gums have regained their health, the amount and symmetry of the gums that appear during laughing are determined and the aesthetics of the smile is checked. If the gingiva looks too much (gummy smile) or the gingival lengths are different from each other while smiling, the gingival lengths are shortened with the help of a soft tissue laser for good aesthetics, they are processed in the form of lace and millimetrically equalized, thus ensuring symmetry. This treatment is called a gingivectomy. If bone intervention is required, both hard and soft tissue can be straightened in combination with the help of hard tissue laser or piezoosteotomy surgery, and the aesthetic stage of the teeth can be started.
Important Factors in Making Aesthetic Smile Aesthetics
- Lip level
- Dimensions of teeth
- Gingival level
- Tooth color
- Tooth alignment
- Laugh line
The harmony of the factors such as the harmony of the lips and teeth in the smile position, one by one and with each other, is of great importance in the analysis of the aesthetic smile.
What Are The Types Of Smile Aesthetics?
- Attractive Smile Aesthetics: In this type of smile aesthetics, it is usually preferred as a result of treatment to bring the front teeth to the fore. This treatment change will give people a younger, healthier and more attractive smile aesthetic.
- Intellectual Smile Aesthetics: It brings a more mature and broad smile to the person by bringing the teeth to approximately the same level.
- Sporty Smile Aesthetics: In this type of smile aesthetics, the design is achieved by designing the central incisors as longer than the lateral incisors.
If orthodontic treatment is not needed after the planning and designs are completed, first of all, the diseased gum tissues are healed and then the level disorders of the gums are eliminated. In cases where missing teeth are present, planned implant applications and other necessary surgical therapies are performed. After the time of recovery is completed following the surgical therapies, teeth whitening treatments are performed when necessary. After these situations, the visual, formal, and functional disorders in the teeth are removed from time to time through aesthetic composite filling treatments. If this treatment is not sufficient, porcelain laminaand veneers and zirconium veneers, which are among the most effective elements of smile aesthetics, can be applied. For porcelain laminate applications, there is usually no or minimal abrasion from the tooth surfaces. If porcelain coating treatments are deemed appropriate, a few changes can be made by taking the patient’s opinions again during the rehearsals during the stages. In all these treatments, lip shape, form, and contour should be taken into account during gingival and tooth and during rehearsals, and the targeted design should be achieved. In some cases, it can include all treatments, and in some cases, smile aesthetics can be brought to the desired level with one or more of them.
