Everybody's heard of a 'million dollar smile.' Well how do we do that? What are the components that make a million dollar smile? Well, there are several things.
Obviously, the teeth have to be pretty. They need to be uniform in color, and uniform in color doesn't mean one color, but they need to all blend in. Real teeth have many different colors in them and that's what makes a real veneer or our real tooth look natural as compared to some of these Chiclets that you've seen that don't look nice.
The other thing that we do is we make sure that the teeth are aligned properly, the angulations of the teeth have to be in symmetry with each other, because if one tooth is out of alignment it becomes the focal point of the smile instead of just the smile being pretty.
Obviously symmetry is important as well. No one tooth should stand out, everything needs to look like a matched set. The teeth need to be complementary to the face and look like they've always been there. So making sure that the teeth are balanced and match the rest of you is what really makes a million dollar smile.
