Perceptions of the beauty of smiles
How do I know if I have the perfect smile? It’s easy, follow your instincts. The most important thing is what you like and not what others think. There is no universal definition of beauty, as the general rules for the beauty of the smile vary from one culture to another. Asians think that a beautiful smile is an important part of the gums, while Europeans and Americans try to avoid this quality because we think it is ugly. In some cultures, the presence of gold teeth is a status symbol, while in others, they are not clearly visible, as great importance is placed on the naturalness of the smile. It is important that all the components of your smile match. And above all, be comfortable with them.
What can I do to improve my smile?
Each patient has more power than they think to strengthen their smile. After a good dental hygiene and a dental examination, you can keep a healthier and more beautiful smile. What we do not recommend is the use of home treatments, such as bleaching or any other procedure that is not under the supervision of a dentist, as these can often lead to problems that require the dentist’s intervention. So if you want to get a beautiful smile, follow all the advice of your dentist and ask him or her to recommend the best treatments to make the desired changes to your teeth.
What is aesthetic dentistry?
Aesthetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry whose main objective is to cause a positive change in teeth and smiles.
Most people think that this type of dentistry only covers whitening treatments of teeth or porcelain shells, but there are many more treatments to improve the smile.
That type of dentistry ranges from simple tooth color correction to replacement of missing teeth, there are many ways to improve tooth function and smile appearance.
Cosmetic dentistry should complement the overall health and oral health of any patient, because improving smiles can have very satisfactory results in terms of increasing people’s confidence and self-esteem.
Currently, most dental treatments, in addition to maintaining and preserving the function of teeth, are implicitly linked to the aesthetic factor, so that areas of dentistry, such as orthodontics, implantology or conservatism, are also part of aesthetic dentistry.
