What is Beauty?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but how do dentist’s define beauty?

In dental terms beauty is all about the symmetry of a person’s smile. Symmetry is the same shape on the left and right side, using an ideal amount of space for your dental arch (the way that your teeth are positioned in your jawbone).

Dentist’s define beauty through symmetry

Conversely, examples of asymmetry would be:

  • If you get two large porcelain veneers or crowns on your right side, but do not have similar shaped teeth on your left side,
  • When patients want to just get two front teeth veneered or crowned and due to the limitations of working within just the front two teeth, the adjacent lateral incisors look small.

Whether you seek porcelain veneers, replacement crown dental work, or even tooth-colored fillings consider balance and symmetry in your smile. Doing so will help you obtain the best result so that you can achieve and live the smile you’ve been dreaming of!

Keep Smiling,

Justin Russo, DDS
