A Smile Makeover Can Improve the Vertical Dimensions of Your Face

A smile makeover to enhance your face.

The Role of Vertical Dimensions in Facial Appearance

Over the years, have you found yourself staring in the mirror, noticing that something is off about your smile? If so, you’re not alone! Missing teeth, overlapping teeth, or an improper bite—even when slight—can affect your overall appearance. And this often results in a vertical dimension issue.

While this might sound like something that has more to do with architecture than your mouth, your optimal vertical dimension is the ideal space between the tip of the nose and the chin. As you can imagine, this “optimal” number varies from patient to patient. What is this number for, you might ask? It’s the vertical length that is optimal for you. Think of it as the goal you want to achieve when it comes to cosmetic dentistry.

So how does this number make a difference in your appearance? It’s rather simple, really. If your teeth are compromised, whether from misalignment, tooth wear, or missing teeth, it can affect the vertical dimension and make the proportion of your smile appear off or your facial features appear asymmetrical. 

So if you could repair tooth damage and correct your bite, how might your life improve? How might your smile shine brighter? You might be surprised by the ways that a smile makeover can improve your life this season. Achieving your face’s perfect vertical dimension can drastically improve your overall facial aesthetics.

Smile Makeovers as a Solution

Smile makeovers are the solution for this vertical dimension problem! Missing teeth? Smile makeovers can solve it. Severely overlapped teeth? Again, we here at Valley Dental Clinic have a plan just for you. Taking the time to restore proper alignment to your teeth can improve your life in more ways than you might realize—and modern dentistry has more solutions than ever before. You’ll find yourself smiling more in photos and bringing those shoulders back confidently as you talk to your boss. You might even find you are more likely to go out with your friends!

That feeling of confidence is something to embrace, something that can change your life for the better.

Improving Oral Health Alongside Aesthetic Enhancements

Treating yourself to a smile makeover does more than just enhance your aesthetics. Addressing a vertical dimension concern contributes to your overall oral health. How? In the case of severe malocclusions, or misalignments, it can be hard to ensure every space is free of bacteria. If missing teeth are affecting your bite, it will eventually lead to chewing and speaking difficulties. Correcting that problem can drastically improve your day-to-day life!

But there’s even more. 

When you are proud of something, you’re more likely to take care of it. This is true for a new car, a new home, and even your teeth. Treating yourself to the smile of your dreams will motivate you to take great care of your teeth to keep them in the best possible shape.

Small changes add up.
