In addition to ones perception of a great smile, there are several technical factors that determine the quality of a smile. These factors are understood and explained to our clients at DDCRC, empowering them to make decisions regarding further treatment. The primary technical factors include –


symmetry-smile Symmetry around the centreline of our face is of great importance for an aesthetically pleasing smile. Even when this is not 100% possible, the illusion of symmetry should be created. The front two upper central incisors should be symmetrical in size, length and shape.

Horizontal Alignment

horizontal-alignment Ideally the smile line should be aligned so it is parallel to the horizontal line running through centre of eyes or to the floor.

Smile Line

Smile Width

smile-width With a narrow smile, the side teeth are often in shadow. This leaves dark triangles at the corner s of the mouth. A wider smile allows one to see the ideal progression from the front to the back teeth, this is more attractive!

Gum Line

gum-line The gum line connects the highest points of the gum levels(zenith) of the upper teeth. This height must be symmetrical on both sides of the mouth. Ideally this line should follow the line of the upper lip, to ensure minimum gum exposure and optimum display of the teeth on smiling. The upper lip should touch where the teeth meet the gum, although a small amount of visible gum tissue above the teeth is acceptable (2mm).

Tooth axis

Tooth-axis The main axis of the tooth inclines backward from tip to gum. This inclination increases from the incisors to the canines.

Relative tooth dimension and proportion

Relative-tooth-dimension-n-proportion Due to individual variations, it is difficult to provide "magic numbers" like the golden proportion, to define adequate tooth dimension and relative proportion. Perception of symmetry , dominance and proportion are influenced by many factors, and should be adapted for every personal smile.

Incisal edge configuration

Interincisal Angles

Interincisal-Angles Interincisal Angles are the small triangular spaces between the tips of the teeth. These are artistically created by the ceramist and dentist to ensure a natural look.


lips Lips are to teeth as a frame is to a picture! The shape, fullness and symmetry of your lips can be optimised for the ideal smile.

Healthy gums
