How is a Smile Beautified?
Though beauty is an individual’s perception, studies show that there are certain factors of teeth, gums and lips which can be modified to make a smile attractive. The length, width and proportions of teeth, their alignment, the color of teeth and the amount of gums visible play a vital role in the attractiveness of a smile. When there are esthetic problems with teeth and gums, the smile may turn out to be less interesting. Following are some of the common esthetic issues addressed through cosmetic dentistry procedures.

There are a number of cosmetic procedures which helps dentists address these issues. The choice of a particular procedure depends on the suitability and needs of the patient.
