What is the Smile Line?

The smile line is the intraoral window, which is seen when the patient fully contracts the smile muscles. For the smile line the upper teeth, the lower edges of the lip and the upper gums must be seen in a certain golden ratio. In patients with a deep smile line, the upper gums are visible more than normally. This is called gummy smile. The gummy smile casts a shadow on a beautiful smile, which we don’t want. Patients with gummy smile have many alternative treatment options.

How is gummy smile (too much gum visibility) treated?

Because the upper gums are too visible in patients with gummy smile, the main objective is to reduce the ratio in which the gums are visible.

With gingivectomy the gums can be cut and the gum level can be raised. B0t0x is also a preferred method for gummy smile treatment. By injecting the upper lip muscle with B0t0x it is prevented that it goes up too much so that the gums are not visible while smiling.

Are age and gender important in smile design?

Criteria for the optimal smile differ for women and men. Since women have a more oval face, an oval contoured tooth shape is more aesthetic. For men, more sharp-lined tooth forms are planned. Angular formed teeth better reflect the aesthetic difference between genders. Age is also an important criteria in smile design. Because with age a decrease in the facial muscle tone occurs. Corrosion in the enamel layer of the teeth, in other words in the hard tissue, causes the person to lose their self-confidence. The patient becomes afraid of smiling and showing his/her teeth. In order for the patient to regain confidence we recommend a smile design treatment.

Are there differences between men and women in smile design?

The teeth structures of men and women are very different. Because the facial lines of women are more oval, more rounded tooth lines will look more beautiful.

As a result, nice aesthetic results are provided when the dental features of both genders are tried to be matched with the facial features.
