Abstract :

Smile aesthetics is based on numerical, physical, physiological and psychological data regarding beauty, while taking into account the desires of the patient. It is determined by the shape, colour and position of the lips, teeth and gingival tissues. Periodontal examination in both the facial and labial settings supports analysis of the gingival display during natural and forced smiling, the health of the periodontium, the gingival contours, the aesthetic gingival line, and the presence of the papillae.

Learning objectives :

  • To determine the perceptions of smile design to variations in relation to the soft tissue esthetics during smile.
  • To guide clinicians to produce variations in gingival inflammation, pigmentation, contour, position of free gingival margins (with and without recession), zeniths, and interdental papilla
  • To outline the parameters to manage an esthetic smile design with a multidisciplinary approach
