Posted on Mar 25, 2013 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

These days, I don’t have lots of photos of me, mostly because I’m the one taking the pictures! However, when I see myself in a photo, it is usually with the well-rehearsed smile I’ve been using in poses most of my adult life. Yet, when I’m with friends and family, I smile bigger and laugh freely, showing more of my smile than what appears in most images.

When patients who want to enhance the appearance of their smile, several side teeth may be easily visible along with front teeth. But, it’s not just “teeth” that create a smile. In our office, we work with a number of dentists to enhance the patient’s esthetic outcome. Along with the number of teeth, shade and shape, we help to optimize the outcome with gum recontouring.

If you’re considering smile enhancements, take a look at your smile in the mirror. You’ll see what others see by holding a hand mirror up to a wall mirror for a close up view. Check out your smile at several angles and watch your smile as you laugh. Do you have gum recession? Do too much of your gums show when you smile big or laugh?

An attractive smile can improve your appearance AND enhance self-confidence so you find yourself smiling more often! In turn, this projects you to others as an upbeat, positive person!
