- Alignment and spacing of the teeth

- Physiognomy (lips, cheeks)
- Skin and hair color
All of these factors will be taken into account when determining the steps to take to achieve a flawless dental aesthetic.
The dentist will also assess the color of the skin and hair, so that the smile is in harmony with the patient’s general appearance, does not appear false and does not make a discordant impression.
Crooked or loose teeth will be straightened and aligned through orthodontic or prosthetic treatments. However, in the case of missing teeth, dental implants are the solution of choice.
