Smile is the reflection of various emotions that are connected to the structure of the teeth and lips of the individual and that occur with the movement of the lips. The main purpose of aesthetic treatments in dentistry is to obtain a beautiful smile. Because an impressive smile of an individual plays an important role in the relationship among people in society.
Aesthetics can be achieved if the individual has a healthy gum and the features of the teeth such as size, shape and color are suitable for the facial structure. For this reason, aesthetic dentistry practices should be planned individually.
In order to provide an aesthetic smile, the treatments include many applications such as adjusting the gingival levels, replacing the old and discolored fillings in the teeth, correcting the shape and alignment of the teeth, and whitening the teeth. These various applications are named with the concept of aesthetic dentistry and can be listed as follows:

• Smile design
• Hollywood smile
• Teeth whitening
• Tooth stone cleaning
• Porcelain veneers
• Zirconium veneers
• Laminate (leaf porcelain)
• Dental filling
• Gum aesthetics

The first step in aesthetic dentistry is to examine the patient. In order to evaluate the patient’s request and the suitability of the jaw and facial structure, measurements are taken and intraoral and extraoral photographs are taken. The expected result as a result of the examination of the obtained data is clearly described to the patient. Because aesthetics is a relative concept and the aesthetic image desired by the patient may not fit the mouth and face structure. In order to provide an aesthetic appearance, the patient’s function and health should not be compromised. As a result, the most appropriate treatment for the patient is planned and the material to be used is decided.

Zirconium Veneers

In order to apply zirconium veneers, which are completely tooth-colored, the teeth must be cut. After the rehearsals of the coating are made and approved, it is adhered to the tooth with adhesive.

Laminate (Leaf porcelain)

It is the most ideal aesthetic treatment option today, as it requires minimal tooth cutting, is not stained with substances that cause coloration on the teeth, such as tea and coffee, and is indistinguishable from natural teeth. In most cases, only the anterior surface of the tooth is etched and the leaf porcelain is adhered to this surface.

Hollywood Smile

The smile created with healthy, white teeth and symmetrical lips is called Hollywood smile. In this smile design, the upper teeth should be in sight and look smooth. The lower teeth, on the other hand, should be aligned properly and should be visible when smiling. In addition, the first molars should appear during the smile. The lips, which are complementary to the smile other than the teeth, should be symmetrical and cover the gums in a way that is not visible.

The most ideal smile should be designed by choosing the most suitable tooth color and shape for the patient’s wishes, personality, face shape, skin color and gender. Since all these factors vary from person to person, session durations also vary.

With porcelain veneers for Hollywood smile, smooth and neat alignment of the surface of the teeth can be achieved. In addition, a natural appearance can be achieved with the light transmission feature of porcelain. However, if the teeth do not have shape and surface defects, only whitening can be performed if the patient only complains about the color of the teeth. When the patient has missing teeth or has problematic teeth that impair aesthetics, treatment is performed with bridge prostheses or implant applications.

A gap between teeth is called diastema. Diastemas are generally not aesthetically pleasing in society. Various procedures can be applied to close the diastema, and when appropriate, gaps can be closed without any abrasion on the teeth.

The appearance of the gums while smiling is called a gummy smile. In patients with this type of situation, the appearance of the gums can disturb the patients, even if the teeth are of ideal shape. If the patients are informed about this situation and the patient’s approval is obtained, the treatment can be supported with Botox to provide smile aesthetics.
