Beautiful teeth are not just a result of looking at your smile to see what appears to be good. There are a set of smile design architectural principals that need to be considered. Tooth to tooth relationships as well as the functional requirements of every aspect of your mouth, teeth & smile need to be evaluated. Once the fundamentals are considered we look at things like the gum line, tooth form, size and color.
In order to properly evaluate your dental situation we use advanced tools such as models of your mouth properly mounted on an articulator to evaluate your bite and jaw function. Then, digital photographs are analyzed in Image Fx software to pre-determine your optimal look.
Once properly evaluated, Dr Sousa works with you to create the smile you have always wanted.
