Teeth Color Balance
The term “red-white aesthetics” refers to the interaction between color, structure and teeth position in relation to the posture and appearance of the gums. The beauty of your smile is not only defined by the whiteness of the teeth but also by the color and shape your gums, you call this red-white aesthetic. Cosmetic dentistry is an own subject in dentistry. There are two dental specialties that primarily focus on dental esthetics/cosmetics: Prosthodontics and Orthodontics. The main goal of cosmetic dentistry is not only to create a natural healthy appearance, but also to get functional comfortable results for the patient. Cosmetic treatments can be performed in the mouth and jaw but also face. Please note that many dentists refer to themselves as "cosmetic/aesthetic dentists" even with no type of training, work experience, or specific education in this field. Needless to say that this is considered unethical. The American Dental Association does not acknowledge cosmetic dentistry as an official specialty area of dentistry, so any general dentist can consider himself a cosmetic dentist. Please make sure to choose your dentist wisely before undergoing any cosmetic treatment. In this video you can see what is considered to be a beautiful smile for European an American standards.
