How good is your smile?

Before your initial visit, ask yourself these questions so you can be sure to get the most from your consultation. We will offer you professional advice and solutions but first you must identify the areas that concern you.

What makes a great smile?

A great smile automatically lifts a person's confidence and makes them feel more attractive. Ultimately it is the one that is right for you, whether it is a white Hollywood smile or a more natural look, whichever you decide it is all about symmetry. We listen to your needs and concerns.

Symmetry

Symmetry

Symmetry around the centreline of our face is of great importance for an aesthetically pleasing smile. Even when this is not 100% possible, the illusion of symmetry should be created. The front two upper central incisors would be symmetrical in size, length and shape.

Horizontal Alignment

Perfect Smile

Ideally the smile line should be aligned so it is parallel to the horizontal.
