Smile Analysis – The (Y-O-U-R) Perfect Smile

The perfect smile is simply defined as the smile that perfectly suits you.

Everyone’s teeth are unique and as such there isn’t one particular type of smile that is perfect. Our teeth are different shapes and sizes and what looks perfect on one person may look strange on another due to the way the smile suits particular facial features. There are, however, some general factors that make a smile perfect in a broad sense.

Firstly, the perfect smile looks natural. Teeth that are too white or look artificially shaped aren’t as appealing as a smile that looks healthy and natural.


If you are not 100% happy with your smile, you are a candidate for smile design and possibly a smile make over. We are able to assist anyone, from minor corrections, to comprehensive treatments.


The need for a smile makeover is generally indicated when you don’t feel confident when you smile. In many cases people are just not aware of the available treatments to enhance your smile, and could be self-conscious and shy about their smile for many years. Some of the treatments are very easy, non-invasive, and not expensive, but sometimes more invasive treatments are needed.

The most important step is correct diagnosis, and a lot of time is spent on identifying the specific areas that you are not happy with.

We use Digital Smile Design to diagnose and treat your smile with the following considerations:

  • Facial appearance

  • Skin tone

  • Hair color

  • Teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display)

  • Gum tissue and lips

Protocol for Smile Makeover:

Step one: Consultation and diagnosis

A Comprehensive consultation is done where you point out areas of concern, expectations and treatment preferences.

  • Digital photos, of your teeth and face

  • X-rays if needed

  • Impressions for study models

Step two: Treatment discussion

On this appointment all costs will be discussed and the different treatment options are discussed.

We will also look at photos of what we can achieve, as well as a mock-up of the new smile.

Step three: Treatment

The different treatment options can be done on its own or in combination:

  • Teeth whitening (Bleaching)

  • Orthodontic treatment

  • Cosmetic bonding and shaping

  • Veneers

  • Crowns and bridges

  • Gingival contouring (gingivectomy)

  • Implants
