Q&A How to widen a smile



Hollywood wide smile?


Many celebrities today have undergone treatments to achieve it. A broad smile is one that reveals a lot of teeth (ideally symmetrical teeth) and doesn’t have big dark spaces between your teeth and lips at the corners.


Did you know wider smiles are considered more attractive in today’s beauty standards?


WHAT CAUSES NARROW SMILES?


• Narrow arches tend to be caused by the width and alignment of the teeth.

• When teeth are missing, this can also cause the smile to look narrow.

• The consequences of a narrow smile often lead to the cheeks being unsupported and the thinning of lips causing an aged appearance

Also, the widest part of the smile appears darker affecting the appearance of the smile.

This also creates an illusion that the front teeth look too prominent or they stick out. We call this having a “narrow buccal corridor.”


How to solve a narrow smile ?

There are multiple ways, in our office we have a specialist in aesthetics Dr. Patricia Moezinia, she will offer you different options depending on your particular needs: Like braces, oral surgery, or palate expanders involve reshaping your jaw bone structure to widen your smile.

If you have a large mouth with misaligned teeth, Invisalign may do the trick too. But another option, one that’s a lot faster and ideal for a majority of mouths, is porcelain veneers. Veneers won’t reshape your jaw, but they’ll give the appearance of a wide smile while enhancing its beauty and symmetry.
