Many factors come into play, in designing a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover. One of the elements involved at David A. Rice DDS in Elgin is the facial midline.
A proficient cosmetic dentist considers the length and angle of the facial midline to accurately position porcelain crowns, veneers, and dental implants. When front teeth restorations do not line up with the facial midline, it is called a canted midline.
Many people do not realize the extent of 3-D engineering required in cosmetic dentistry. In addition to the orientation in relation to the facial midline, there is also the angle and size of the teeth in relation to each other and in relation to the size and shape of the lips and gums.
If you are considering an extensive smile makeover, you don’t want to entrust your smile to just any dentist. At David A. Rice, DDS we use cosmetic dentistry to transform smiles. We also offer general and family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
