Aesthetic Dentistry and Smile Design

Aesthetic dentistry; In addition to treating the basic problems in the teeth, it is the field of dentistry that evaluates the position of the teeth in the mouth, their size, their relationship with each other and with other structures such as lips and gums and improves the quality of the smile.
One of the first concepts that comes to mind when it comes to aesthetic dentistry is "smile design". Smile design; It is the process of restoring the teeth and gums, whose aesthetic appearance has deteriorated for various reasons, to a natural and beautiful appearance as much as possible, taking into account the facial shapes and needs of the patients.
"Do not forget that you can reveal your difference with aesthetic smile design where you can have a vibrant, energetic and more attractive smile!"
Smile design, which is a multidisciplinary approach, is carried out by applying many procedures together and is not a simple procedure that can be completed in just one session. The reason for this is that it is necessary to adopt a holistic approach that usually touches all areas of expertise. The most important thing that distinguishes smile design from other aesthetic approaches such as conventional porcelain veneers and orthodontic treatment is that not only the teeth are evaluated, but also other factors such as lips and gums are taken into account, and the most natural and best appearance is obtained without compromising the function while the patient is in normal position, talking and laughing.

Which procedures does smile design include?

Each tooth in the mouth has its own morphology, size, position, angle and colour. Since the aesthetic requirements of the patients will be different from each other, the procedures to be performed are determined individually. While determining these procedures, factors such as facial features, gender, age and expectations of the patient are taken into consideration; the image that the patient wants to have is also evaluated.
The first stage of smile design applications starts with a comprehensive examination. In this examination session, in addition to the face and intraoral photographs routinely taken at Denturla, intraoral measurements are taken with conventional and digital systems. Thanks to the models created with the photographs and measurements taken, you will be able to see your appearance both on the model and through the computer programme, and you will be able to make predictions about how you will look after the treatments are completed.

"The most important point in this process, which is carried out with a completely digital workflow, is that the patient can become a part of the treatment."

After the desired changes are easily made, treatment planning is made in order to obtain the desired smile. The treatment plan may include orthodontic treatment and gingival arrangements according to the necessity, as well as implant procedures planned in cases of tooth deficiencies and other surgical applications deemed necessary. After this stage, the visual and stylistic defects in the teeth are sometimes eliminated by means of aesthetic dental fillings. In cases where this method is not sufficient, porcelain laminates and veneers and zirconium veneers come into play. In the rehearsals, some changes can always be made by taking the patient's ideas again. Sometimes, botulinum toxin applications can also be performed to make the smile more prominent during smile design.

"Aesthetic smile design is one of the longest-lasting aesthetic treatment methods and one of the most beautiful aspects of this treatment is that it is a painless process."
