Thanks to the dental treatment that you will plan together with your best aesthetic dentist clinic in Istanbul and Antalya Turkey, you can also have both white teeth and an impressive smile.

Smile design takes care of your face appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth appearance), gum tissue and lips to improve your ideal smile. The smile design is made for many reasons and is arranged according to the considerations that belong to you. What are your likes and dislikes about your smile or teeth? Some of your smile features that your aesthetic dentist will review with you and that can be improved with a smile makeup may be the following:


Tooth color: Silver or amalgam dental fillings can be replaced with natural composite restorations that match the color of the teeth; meanwhile, teeth whitening can also correct the color of the stained teeth. Dental decoloring and screening are important considerations that work when preparing for and evaluating various procedures; these procedures include porcelain teeth, bridges, composite bonding, and dental implants. When considering the color of your tooth, remember that dark or discolored teeth mean an old mouth. A smile consisting of well-formed bright and white teeth means a more youthful appearance. The tone that your dentist chooses for teeth whitening is carefully considered in relation to the color and tone of your face and hair. Turkey aesthetic dentists are skilled at striking the right balance between providing you with brighter and whiter smile and maintaining your natural tooth decolorization.

Alignment and decoupling: Teeth that are curved, crossed on top of each other, or have gaps between them; can be corrected and aligned using orthodontics or Invisalign and improved with a coating.


Missing teeth: Your smile with a lack of one or more teeth can negatively affect your appearance, as well as affect your bite and cause caries. Replacing them with new ones is an important part of oral health and facial aesthetics. Missing teeth can be replaced with implants, bridges, or dentures.

Harmony and balance: Uneven, broken or cracked teeth can be combined aesthetically for a more beautiful appearance, and corrections can be made to improve the overall contour of your smile.

Plump lips, smiles and cheeks: A disfigured or aging face can be improved and renewed with the main procedures in the smile design category; this includes orthodontics and/or oral jaw and facial surgery. An aesthetic dentist will work with you to design a plan for exactly what you want to achieve in this process. In this treatment plan, there will be restorative procedures such as teeth whitening, composite bonding, veneers, orthodontics (braces), oral, maxillofacial surgery, and gum length shortening.


In transfer to the color, alignment and balance of your teeth within the aesthetic boundaries of your smile (the upper and lower parts of the teeth that appear when you laugh); there are other elements that your aesthetic dentist will take into account and make the smile design according to him:

Tooth length: Long teeth add a younger appearance. As you get older, the wear increases and your teeth become shorter; again, the fact that the gum looks too much when you laugh can also make your teeth look shorter. Smile design treatment for short teeth includes reshaping and lengthening the two middle teeth in front with composite bonding or porcelain veneers. If your smile looks like you have lost your teeth, your aesthetic dentist will offer a treatment that will correct the gum line and prolong the appearance of your teeth using laser dental procedures. If necessary, you can also contact a gum disease specialist to have the upper part of your teeth extended. Lengthening your teeth will also affect the overall appearance of your face. For example, the presence of shaped, long and square teeth in a round-faced person can have a debilitating effect.

Smile line: A smile line is a line that follows your teeth from side to side at the top and is the same as the curve of your lower lip when you smile. This standard reference point can help you determine how long your new teeth will be for smile design.

Dental ratios: Your aesthetic dentist will examine your teeth to determine if they are in direct proportion to each other. Many people say that a really beautiful smile is one in which one of the middle front teeth stands out and is in a width-to-length ratio of 5 by 4. This proportioning also directs the width and length of the other teeth to aesthetic boundaries, and the smile line remains balanced.


Aesthetic dentist procedures also require care over time. For example, teeth whitening should be continued between certain intervals, so that the shine is maintained. Porcelain veneers may break and need replacement.

Fixed composite bindings may become rusty and need replacement or improvement. Crown bridge fixed prostheses should be replaced within five to six years. Corrections on the gums also need to be improved over time.

The materials selected by the ceramist, laboratory technician and your dentist also have an impact on the life of the smile design. Be careful when choosing your aesthetic dentist to achieve the best results, and also evaluate your material options well.


Your oral health should be evaluated before your aesthetic dentist prepares a plan for smile design. If, after your evaluations, it is concluded that you have an oral health problem such as misaligned jaw structure or bleeding gums, you may need to undergo a treatment prior to smile design.


Among the ways that you can see before the design of the decollete are the following:

Dental visual software: Their visual software allows you to see your smile design results in advance. Your dentist uses this visual technology to transfer the features of your procedure to a dental laboratory technician or other dental professionals in your treatment plan. But a digital visual can only give you an idea of how you will look when the design is finished; it may not exactly match the final results.

Before-after photos: Before-after photos of other patients with a smile design are an example of the results you can see. The photos also provide an idea of the quality of the work done by your aesthetic dentist.

Dental work models: Your dentist will make a similar one of your teeth and fill it with a plaster for a one-to-one model of your teeth. The plaster can then be shaped by chipping off the excess or expanding the parts that require more volume. Dentists use working models so that you can see the changes in all aspects. Dental laboratory technicians also use working models as a guide for the manufacture of design materials such as front teeth or veneers.
