    • Emily Dickenson


  • How is it measured?
    • The Golden Ratio
    • is a mathematical ratio that seems to appear recurrently in beautiful things in nature as well as in other things that are seen as "Beautiful".
    • The "Golden Ratio" is a mathematical ratio of1.618:1 , and the number1.618is called " Phi ".

8. The four front teeth, from central incisor to premolar are the most significant part of the smile and they are in Golden Proportion to each other. This phenomenon has been combined in a grid which can be used to assist us in perfecting the aesthetics of the eight front teeth. The above picture shows a grid in the mouth with the front teeth clearly shown in the demarcations predicted. 9. Smile Design:

  • General Criteria:
    • Smile Line
    • Midline
    • Axial Inclination
    • Buccal Corridor
  • Specific Criteria:
    • Incisal Embrasures
    • Golden Proportion
    • Symmetry
    • Incisal Edge Position
    • Emergence Profile

  • Buccal Corridor
    • Is there dark spaces while smiling between the corners of the mouth and the buccal surfaces of the upper teeth?
    • What is the arch form?

13. Specific Criteria:

  • Symmetry:
    • Is the cervical/incisal tooth length symmetrical from right to left?
    • Is the interproximal contact proper in length and position?
    • Are contralateral teeth properly arranged for size and position?

14. Periodontal Related Issues:

  • Cervical Embrasures
    • Are there black triangles present?
  • Margin placement and Design
    • Is the treatment a crown or veneer or something in between?
  • Gingival contour and shape
    • This is the biggest killer of a beautiful cosmetic result.
    • Is the gingival architecture in harmony with the smile design?

15. 16. Materials and Finish:

  • Choice of materials
    • When do I use a Veneer, all porcelain crown, or PFM with porcelain margin?
  • Shade Selection
    • What is the hue, chroma and value?
    • Is incisal translucency and halo effect appropriate?

17. Treatment Planning

  • It is the responsibility of the general dentist to offer the best possible treatment to the patient and hence must have the knowledge of the procedures he/she will refer out in order to confidently offer treatment to the patient.
