Sometimes, even after a thorough research, you might still be confused regarding the state of your smile, whether you actually need a smile design consultation.
Here is a simple questionnaire to make it easier for you to decide whether you actually need a smile enhancement procedure. Stand in front of the mirror, observe your smile and answer these simple questions.
Are your two upper front teeth too long or too wide ?
Do you observe any spaces between your front teeth ?
Do you notice any stains on your teeth ?
In a broad smile, are any of your teeth of a different colour ?
Are any of your front teeth overlapping each other ?
Do any of your front teeth ‘stick out’ ?
Are your lower six front teeth crooked and uneven in appearance ?
If there are any fillings in your front teeth, are they of a different colour than your natural teeth ?
Do your crowns / fillings / laminates look artificial ?
When you smile broadly, do you feel that too much of your gums show ?
Do you see or feel a ‘V’ like erosion on the necks of any of your teeth ?
Do your gums curve around your teeth in any other shape than a ‘half moon shape’ ?
Do you feel your gums are red and swollen ?
Do you get conscious while smiling naturally or while smiling for photographs for any reason ?
Do you feel your smile appears unaesthetic for any other reason ?
If you have answered a ‘Yes’ to any of the above the questions you could consider visiting an aesthetic dentist for a smile design consultation.
