A successful smile transformation requires an understanding of smile aesthetics, biology, materials and function. The size, shape and contour of the front teeth is intimately related to the muscles and the jaw joint. This aspect cannot be ignored. In addition to this are the patient’s expectations and requirements. The challenge can be quite daunting! Thankfully, with the techniques and materials that we have today, a successful outcome is well within reach, even for the most challenging problems. Helping our patients achieve the smile that they always wanted is perhaps the most rewarding part of the work that we do! ⁣
