Smile Analysis-Patient

Your smile affects your self-image, and can greatly influence the quality of your interactions with others.  Many people hold back from laughing or smiling because they are uncomfortable with their smile.

If you're not happy with your smile or if you're curious about the possibilities of changing it, take this test.  The purpose of this test is to make you aware that a smile consists  not only the front upper teeth but all of the teeth and gum tissue that show when your're speaking or when your lips are involved in the smile.

 The following questions are designed to honestly appraise your smile.  Go to a mirror, smile as wide as you can, and ask yourself the following questions:

In a slight smile, with teeth parted, do the tips of your teeth show?

Are the lengths of you two upper front teeth in good relationship to the other front teeth?

Are the widths of the front upper teeth in good proportion with you other front teeth?

Do you have spaces between teeth and are the spaces getting larger?

Do the upper front teeth stick out?

Are your front teeth crowded or overlapping?

When you smile broadly, are your teeth the same color or are they lighter or darker and do not match?

Are your lower front teeth a different color than the upper front teeth?

Are your back teeth broken, missing, and painful?

Do your present restorations-filings, veneers, and crowns look good?

Do any of your teeth have visible cracks, chips, or fractures?

Do you have a "gummy" smile (too much of your gums show when smiling)?

Are your gums red, sore, puffy, bleeding or receded?

Have your gums receded from the neck of the tooth showing dark edges of crowns or is the root exposed?

Is your mouth free of decay and gum disease, which can cause bad breath?

Do your cheeks and lips have a sunken-in appearance?

Do you upper front teeth line up with the middle of your face?

Do your teeth complement your facial shape?

Are the shape of your teeth appropriately masculine or feminine for your overall look?
