Seven deadly sins of aesthetic dentistry are described below, and they should be avoided if inconspicuousness and natural looking refurbishments are desired.
Deadly sins of Cosmetic Dentistry and how to spot them
All the sins are avoided through Abrasion, Cutting, and Polishing. The availability of such techniques have solved out many problems and generated a strong, positive response from many patients. If someone is interested in changing the appearance of his/her teeth or smile then general treatment options include bleaching, tooth-colored restorations, veneers, crowns, and many other specified cosmetic dentistry treatments.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments for individuals vary in the level of invasiveness.
First Sin – Cervical Blacklines
People with a high lip line disclose the cervical margins of their maxillary teeth. Those black lines around artificial prostheses become deliberately observable.
Second sin – Color Mismatch
Color is a complex subject which is troubleshooting for both the clinician and ceramicist. Another problematic factor is characterizations where the basic color of the crown mismatch with the surface texture which causes visible renovation associated with the surrounding natural teeth.
Third sin – Incorrect Tooth Proportions
This sin is associated with the periodontal disease with the subsequent gingival recession that gives the unpleasant impact of long teeth. Excessive incisal tooth wear has the conflicting impact of creating short, fat teeth which are equally unattractive.
Fourth Sin – Bulbousity
Bulbous is related to single or numerous teeth. Extreme bulbosity is attributed to a ‘goofy’ appearance with prominent teeth. Facial or buccal inclinations of single or multiple units are the contrasting factors of bulbousity. For example, angle’s class II occlusion or incorrect angulation of cosmetic teeth.
Fifth Sin – Monotony
The two constituents of cosmetic dentistry are a tooth-to-tooth relationship and tooth color. If incisal embrasures are flat due to some reasons like tooth wear or incorrect shape or form of dental prostheses, then the effect is uniformity and monotony.
Sixth Sin – Slanted Smile
A slanted smile is due to unilateral or isolated tooth wear, erratic eruption patterns, periodontal disease, tooth malpositions, slanted maxilla or incorrect occlusal plane of interior restorations.
This sin can be avoided by ensuring the correct angulations of the incisal plane that use a face bow, bite-stick registration, and photographs. The incisal plane should coincide with the interpupillary line and the curvature of lower lip during a relaxed smile.
Seventh sin – Gingival abnormalities
Lower lip conceals a multitude of sins, and upper lip exposes them. if all above sins are not there but give a feel like something is missing then gingival abnormalities are there which causes lack of pink cosmetics. An easy way to pick out an artificial restoration that is about moving the eyes apically and view the soft tissues.
