What is a smile consultation?

A consultation for a smile makeover with the best cosmetic dentists is necessary as this is the time for the patient to understand what their makeover options are going to be. The dentist will begin the consultation by first discussing your expectations and then performing a thorough mouth examination as well as take a by taking close look at their patient's overall facial structure. They are then able to let the patient know which cosmetic procedures are going to work for improving their smile.

Because there are so many cosmetic dentistry choices available nowadays, it is necessary for anyone considering a smile makeover to make a consultation appointment so they can better understand their specific smile improvement choices.

Dentist will do detailed examination and take digital photographs and x rays of your teeth from all angles, so that the comprehensive evaluation and analysis of the case can be done. He has to take several existing factors into consideration, which are:

Medical history and general health

The cosmetic dentist would consider your general health issues like diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, etc. You must let the dentist know if

  • you have allergies to any medicine.
  • you are under some medication like blood thinner etc.
  • You are pregnant or nursing mother.
  • You have had a recent dental or facial rejuvenation procedures 

Dental composition and structure analysis

Cosmetic dentists have the knowledge and aesthetic sense that is required to craft beautiful smiles. Every person's aesthetic needs may be different. Top cosmetic  dentists recommend dental procedures based on the needs of the patient. The results achieved in each case depends on experience, skills and knowledge of the cosmetic dentist. A wide range of dental procedures can be performed at a dental office to bring about beautiful and transforming changes in the smile. Following are some of the aspects of teeth and gums that can be changed by cosmetic dentists.

  • Colour of teeth
  • Shape and size of teeth
  • Length of gum line
  • Teeth and gum alignment

A perfect smile is all about a harmonious outcome of symmetry and balance between key components therefore during consultation the dental composition and structure analysis will consider:

  • Gaps and spaces between the teeth
  • The natural teeth alignment and the bite pattern symmetry.
  • The length and width and proportion symmetry of the teeth. If your teeth are overcrowding or crooked then a correction is recommended.
  • Chipping, rigged edges previous injuries and fractures to the gum and teeth can disturb the smile symmetry.
  • Missing teeth
  • Visible cavities, previous implants or other dental procedures
  • The health of the gums; inflamed or bleeding gums can cause displacement.
  • Gummy smile i.e. if inordinate amount of gums are visible when you simile.
  • The colour and appearance of teeth.

Size, shape and position of teeth

During a makeover consultation, the patient will learn about changing the size, shape and position of their teeth. The following three tooth alterations are often used to improve the way someone looks when they smile, and can also be referred to as tooth reshaping and dental contouring.

  • Changing the size of a tooth is an option and allows patients to make their small teeth larger and their large teeth smaller. This can be achieved with the help of dental bonding or porcelain veneers
  • Changing the shape of a tooth is often a choice for patients who are looking to have straighter teeth. Using dental contouring techniques, a dentist can reshape certain teeth to make straightening procedures more effective
  • Changing the position of the teeth requires a patient to select one of the many teeth straightening options available, such as traditional metal braces or clear aligning dental tray.

Facial structure evaluation and analysis

Facial beauty is based on standard aesthetic principles that involve proper alignment, symmetry, and proportion of face. Analysing, evaluating and treatment planning for facial aesthetics often involve a multidisciplinary approach, which could include orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, periodontal therapy, cosmetic dentistry and plastic surgery. Thus, aesthetic approach to patient care at The Esthetic Clinics, India produces the best dental and facial beauty.

But in common clinical practice, unless and otherwise there is an obvious discrepancy in the face, we restrict our smile makeover to the dental composition only. There are two facial features, which do play a major role in the smile design:

  1. The interpupillary line and
  2. Lips

The interpupillary line should be perpendicular to the midline of the face and parallel to the occlusal plane. Lips are important since they create the boundaries of smile design. If upon examination the cosmetic dentist comes across major discrepancies in the above-mentioned two factors, then he will recommend the correction of the facial composition, before venturing into the correction of the dental composition. The muscle tone of cheeks weakens with age and labial grooves flanking the nose on either side become more pronounced. The face may look pinched, taking away from an otherwise attractive smile. Cheek fillers may be recommended to plump them up and tone up the muscles as well as fill up unbecoming hollows and grooves. 

Other significant factors, which are kept in mind during a smile evaluation, are:

  • Gender: male teeth are( specially front)are bigger in size and shape ,whereas female teeth appear softer, round, and small in size
  • Canine shape: their shape and sharpness is an indication of the personality of the person.
  • Age: the smile has to broader in youth because cheek, lip, and face are fuller than the older people are. Gums too shrink with advancing age, affecting the overall look of a smile.
  • Skin tone and complexion of a person.
  • Colour of hair of the person.

The smile we create should be aesthetically appealing and functionally sound too. It is our duty to carefully diagnose, analyse and deliver the best to our patients, taking into account all of the discussed factors. The smile designing done by us has to be as conservative as possible without altering the natural flow of the facial structure unlike the time in the past when smiles used to appear ‘made up’. Our aim has to be less reduction of tooth structure and greater aesthetics and durability. This simply means that cosmetic dentistry has to be a multispecialty branch, wherein all treatments like orthodontics, periodontics, surgical procedures have to be performed whenever deemed necessary.

The cost factor

The duration of treatment and cost of your smile makeover will vary depending on your dentist, your location, your level of dental insurance, the state of your oral health and the extent of your customized makeover plan.

Your treatment may be more expensive and take longer if your dentist identifies any underlying oral health issues before beginning treatment. Although these restorative procedures may be covered in part by your dental insurance carrier, you will still pay more for treatment than someone with immaculate oral health will.

With proper care and regular dental visits, your smile will look good and your crowns, veneers and other restorations will last for many years.

While smile consultations are reasonably priced at dental clinics, the modern techniques and cutting-edge technology employed for evaluating your smile may considerably add to the consultation cost
