A lot of people have asked themselves this question, but few of them have actually proceeded in doing so. One of the reasons behind this is that there seems to be uncertainty as to whether the procedure is damaging to the teeth or not. Teeth whitening, along with orthodontic procedures, is the least invasive form of aesthetic therapy. Therefore, without touching the teeth or using a drill, we are able to completely alter our smile appearance and enhance it with the radiance that it may have been lacking.
Could whitening be damaging to the teeth?
The answer is a definite no, provided that all safety measures have been taken. Subsequently, therapy must be overseen by the dentist, and the use of bleaching substance or cosmetics should be avoided without the dentist’s counselling.
In modern dentistry there are three main whitening methods. The first one is in-office whitening, which is applied by a professional dentist. The second is at-home whitening, which is used by the patient with the help of whitening trays, under the dentist’s supervision, and the third is a combination of the above methods.
Basic Principles of Smile Design
Research has proven that to the question of which structure is the most important in a person’s attractiveness, the face is by far the most common answer. And to the question of which facial characteristic is the most important, smile comes first.
Everything that is considered beautiful is based on the principles of aesthetics, balance and symmetry among eyes, teeth and the rest of the face.
Therefore, to assess, diagnose and resolve the aesthetic issues of the smile, it is obvious that an organized and systematic approach is required. Our final goal is to achieve a pleasing smile composition by creating conformity among variant aesthetic elements.
These elements include teeth and gums, along with the face.
What is beauty?
The answer to this question “What is beauty?” has been a quest since the beginning of time. However, beauty seems to be a subjective notion that cannot be defined in absolute terms. Whereas beauty can’t be measured, the harmony that is related to it can be expressed as a ratio. This analogy has been introduced by the ancient Greeks and is called the .“Golden Ratio”.
The golden ratio is a phenomenon that can be observed all around us. Every beautiful object in nature, art, even teeth, is made in accordance with this analogy.
It is our commitment to employ this natural law of beauty to create ideal smiles.
