Let’s Look at a Healthy Smile:

A healthy smile meets the following criteria:

  • The incisal edges of the upper six front teeth follow the curve of the lower lip
  • The midline is perpendicular to the horizon
  • There is no “cant” to the teeth in the smile
  • The smile is properly framed by the lips and gum tissues
  • There is an overall absence of disease
