SMILE - The perceiveness of one's personalities said to be God's Gift. Certain Issues might create discrepancies in this appearance, the role of a cosmetic dentist is crucial in analyzing and crafting the desired smile.
Scottish Physiologist CHARLES BELL (1774-1842) was quoted as remarking that the thought is to the word that feeling is to the facial expression.The focus of dentistry in the present times is not only the prevention and treatment of diseases but on meeting the demands for better esthetics.
Esthetic dentistry is emerging as one of the most progressive and challenging branches of this field. Basically the smile is dependent on the musculature and the presence of the teeth. But every person is not fortunate enough to have a beautiful smile. The answer to above problem is the esthetic dentistry which has developed leaps and bands with the latest technologies and materials. Esthetic dentistry is characterised primarily by the smile. The goal in the creation of the esthetic dental restoration is to stimulate, or improve upon the appearance of the natural dentition. The successful esthetic restoration must integrate harmoniously with the whole of face not just with the surrounding teeth. The esthetics of the smile are related to colour, shape, texture, dental alignment, gingival contour and the relationship of these with face.
Smile designing is not only related to restorative dentistry, in fact it is an interdisciplinary approach involving restorative, orthodontic, prosthodontic and periodontal approaches. Digital Smile Designing is a practical multi- use tool with clinically relevant advantages.It can strengthen esthetic diagnostic abilities, improve communication among team members create predictable systems throughout the treatment phases, enhance patient's education and motivation, increase the effectiveness of case presentation. The drawing of reference lines and shapes over patient photographs, following a predetermined sequence, allows the dentist to better evaluate the esthetic relation among the teeth, the gingiva, the smile ,and the face.
