Many factors can influence the beauty of a smile. Although beauty is an individual's perception, research has shown that the size, color, shape and alignment of teeth and the gum line play a key role in making the smile more interesting. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can alter these factors to an optimum level and improve the esthetics of teeth and gums. The success of the treatment depends on experience, knowledge and artistic skills of the cosmetic dentist. A patient has to discuss his/her idea of the smile during the questionnaire. This helps the dentist understand the expectations of patients and set a treatment plan.
Transforming a smile is not an easy job. It requires the active participation of patients in the treatment planning. Patients can list out the changes they expect from the treatment and discuss them with a cosmetic dentist. Pictures of teeth are taken and the oral health is evaluated. Problems like tooth decay and gum infection may have to be treated first. Based on the inputs from a patient, cosmetic dentist sets a treatment plan. It may be a single procedure or a combination of two or more procedures. Patients are explained about different treatment options so that they can make an informed decision.
