Trumpeter and singer Louis Armstrong once famously proclaimed that “When you smile the whole world smiles with you.” Dr. Zfaz says your smile is a way to “say hello to the world without uttering any words.”
So what happens when you can’t smile because of dental issues in the front of your mouth, ones that make you want to keep you jaws clamped shut rather than admit to the world you have missing or damaged teeth?
Achieving Esthetic Success
Your front teeth, the area we refer to as the esthetic zone, are the stars of your smile, the prominent parts of your teeth other people see most when you smile. Tooth replacement in this critical area is never a one-size-fits-all proposition. Exceptional planning, expert techniques, and management of soft tissue are required before the surgical phase for these prominent teeth, not only for total esthetic success but to ensure long-term stability and function.
Your doctor must take many factors into consideration, including smile line positioning, root position of adjacent teeth, position of the implant, and bone anatomy of the site. Even subtle errors in positioning can ruin what should be a beautiful smile.
Take a look at a few examples of what can be achieved in the hands of skilled practitioners. Your beautiful 2023 smile awaits!
