Take this simple quiz to know if you are a candidate for cosmetic dentistry:

·        In a slight smile with your teeth parted, do the tips of your teeth show?Your teeth
should show slightly when you smile slightly or talk.

  When you smile slightly does your smile line appear in a shallow U-Shape i.e. are
your front two teeth slightly longer than your other teeth?Your smile line is a youthful smile
line if it is as mentioned above. Your front two teeth i.e. the central incisors should be
slightly longer than the adjacent incisors. Next the canine or corner teeth should be V-
Shaped and of the same length as the central incisor.

Are your front two teeth too long?The front teeth should be about 2mm longer than the
adjacent lateral incisors. They are too long if they are longer than this.

·        Do you have spaces between your front teeth?If you have spacing or diastema
between your front teeth, have it checked, particularly if it hasn't always been there. Such
spaces can grow larger, indicating a physical problem such as gum disease or a bad habits
such as tongue thrusting. If no such problem exists and you don't like the space, it can be
closed with bonding or laminating / veneering procedure or orthodontic appliances depending
upon the size of the space.

·        Do your front teeth protrude or stick out ?Protrusion of teeth causes an unappealing
smile. This problem can be corrected with cosmetic contouring combined with laminating

·        Are your front teeth crowded or overlapping? If yes it can be corrected either by
orthodontics repositioning or cosmetic contouring and veneering.

·        Are you happy with the color of your teeth? Do you have stains on your teeth ?If yes,
your smile could be made attractive. Stains may be gotten rid of by bleaching, when they
are on the external surface. Intrinsic stains can be corrected by veneering or capping.

·        Do your front teeth have fillings whose shade does not match the natural tooth color?
Tooth colored fillings in the front teeth that matched perfectly when they were placed may
not look as good after a few years. Certain food can stain these fillings as can habits like
smoking and drinking coffee and tea. You may need more frequent professional cleaning or

·        Are your lower six front teeth even in appearance?Uneven lower teeth with one or more
teeth longer than others can be a distraction when you speak. Through cosmetic contouring,
the teeth can often be reshaped to appear even.

·        Do the necks of your teeth indicate erosion or ditched in 'V' that can be seen or felt
with your finger nails?These deformities can progress rapidly, resulting in tooth discoloration
and sensitivity. However they usually can be corrected easily and esthetically with
composite resin bonding. The primary advantage, however is that such tooth repair prevents
further erosion and possible damage to the nerve.

·        Are your gums pink and 'knife edged' or are they red and swollen?Gums should be
pink and knife edged and not red and puffy. If red and puffy then you are suffering from gum
disease and a cleaning appointment may help.

·        Is your mouth free from decay or gum disease that can cause bad breath ?If not, you
need to see your dentist and also brush and floss regularly.

·        Do I have a masculine or feminine smile ? Feminine type smileThere is no
anthropological basis for masculinity or femininity in teeth. However, we tend to think of teeth
that are nicely curved as softening the smile and we perceive this as a more feminine look.
Note, also, the slight openings at the biting edges between the teeth. These are called
incisal embrasures and help make the teeth look distinct instead of joined together.
Masculine type smileThis is a fine example of a masculine smile with a medium lip line. The
teeth are more angular, and the central incisors provide a bolder or stronger look in relation
to the lateral incisors. They are squarer, less rounded, and slightly more textured than in the
above photograph. A more youthful smile line is created when the central incisors are
slightly darker than the other teeth due to the thickness of the teeth.
