Smile Analysis

man wife smiling 300x199 Smile Analysis The way you see yourself and think others see you has a great deal to do with the way you feel about yourself. A radiant smile can open doors and remove barriers, can make new friends and encourage your loved ones. Your smile can be your calling card. . .

The following is a list of questions designed to get you to think and appraise your own smile — a “smile analysis”. The first group of questions reflects upon your inner image of your smile; the second is an objective approach.

How do you feel about your smile?
1. Do you love the appearance of your teeth and smile?
2. Do you find a way to smile without using your teeth? Or put your hand in front of your mouth when you smile?
3. Do you ever wish you had a smile like a model on a magazine cover?
4. Are you hesitant to visit a cosmetic dental office due to the condition of your teeth?
5. Does your smile make you feel confident?
6. Do you close your lips when someone is taking your picture, or turn away from the camera?
7. Have you ever held back a laugh because you were uncomfortable with your smile?
8. Has anyone ever told you that you have a beautiful smile? Would you like to hear it all the time?blonde woman smiling 298x300 Smile Analysis

What is your smile really like?
1. Are your teeth discolored—yellowish, grey, or stained?
2. Are there any spaces from missing teeth?
3. Are there gaps in between your teeth?
4. Are your teeth crowded or overlapped?
5. Are the biting edges of your teeth straight across, or do they follow the curve of your lip?
6. Is the midline of your two front teeth centered with your nose, or off to one side?
7. Can you see any grey, black, or discolored fillings?
8. Do you have any crowns that are dark at the gums, or don’t look natural?

10. Are your gums red and puffy or receded?
