Smile Designing: A Multidisciplinary Approach for Dental Aesthetics

Author(s):Tamilselvan Kumar*

Smile is the ability of a person to express his/her emotion with the structure and movement of the teeth and lips. Smile determines how well a person can function in the society. Correct dental proportion is essential in creating an esthetically pleasing smile. Central incisors are considered the key and the most dominant teeth in the smile and they should display pleasing proportions. In a perfect smile, the gum line follows the upper lip or is just above it and ensures that just enough gums (2 mm-3 mm) are exposed. This case report depicts the successful management of a patient who reported to the department of periodontics with the chief complaint of shortened clinical crown length and spacing between teeth in the upper anterior teeth region. On clinical examination, there was shortened clinical crown height with excessive gingival display in upper anterior and midline diastema was noted. Gingivectomy was performed to increase the clinical crown length and to reduce the overexposed gingival tissue. Laminate veneers were used to correct the midline diastema.
