Smile Design

Individuals looking for a complete smile makeover due to issues with tooth alignment or tooth wear or tooth discolouration could qualify to receive Smile Design treatment from Pearl Dental Clinic.

This process ensures that patients will receive a custom-made smile that is specifically designed to suit their needs with the best possible cosmetic results and is achieved through using technological advancements.

Communication is the key to providing the ideal solution for any patients looking for a smile makeover, therefore it is vital to ensure individuals seek a smile consultation appointment with their Pearl Dental Clinic practitioner prior to treatment.

During the initial visit, prospective patients will discuss the size, shape and position of their teeth, as well as have their facial features assessed by an experienced dentist to ensure they will look their best following the smile makeover procedure.

A number of people could wish to transform the appearance of their teeth after experiencing oral health problems, while a bright, white Hollywood smile could allow many individuals enjoy higher self-esteem as a result of the life-changing smile makeover treatment.

What does the Smile design process entail?

Using a trial smile, we are able to show a patient what their proposed smile makeover work will look like before they have started the treatment, to ensure they are happy with the results.

Proving invaluable to high numbers of previous patients, the trial smile gives members of the public the chance to make sure their smile will appear exactly how they want it to, which reduces the risk of surprise involved in cosmetic dentistry.

Your Pearl Dental Clinic practitioner will take a number of factors into account when carrying out Smile Design, such as the shape of the jaw, position of the eyes and the width of the mouth.

In addition, tooth length, width, shape and relative proportions of each tooth plays a considerable role in the process of carrying out a smile makeover to improve the quality of life for patients.

Golden Proportions

To ensure this process is carried out ensuring optimum results, your Pearl Dental Clinic practitioner may use a theory called Golden Proportions to measure the distance between certain features to ensure patients are left with their ideal smile.

The ancient principle is often used in art, mathematics and architecture to provide a guide for achieving an aesthetically pleasing proportion. During this method, a line is divided into two sections where one is the mean and the other part is the extreme.

The cosmetic dental laboratory may use the golden proportions principles to measure the distance between features, as well as the length and size of teeth, to formulate a plan of action to take during the process of a smile makeover.

  1. Horizontal alignment – this process ensures that the teeth are aligned to with the eye line.
  2. Symmetry – ideal patients will have symmetry through the centre line of their face, which is of great importance when producing an aesthetically pleasing smile. Due to the fact that many people do not have symmetrical faces, your Pearl Dental Clinic practitioner will make every effort to give the illusion of symmetry.
  3. Smile line – this area joins the top of the teeth and should mimic the curve of a patient’s lower lip, which can give a more youthful appearance.
  4. Gum line – an even gum line will follow the line of the upper lip, similarly to the smile line.
  5. Embrasures – these are the curved corners at the tips of the teeth, which give definition to each pearly white. A more youthful feature is to have open incisal embrasures, more senior patients may prefer to have more closed incisal embrasures.
  6. Golden tooth proportions – each tooth should be of a certain proportion to give the best length-to-width ratio.
  7. A normal width smile allows people to see the progression of the teeth from front to back. If the smile is considered narrow then the teeth towards the back of the mouth are not seen optimally on smiling.

What happens after the smile design procedure?

After making sure that patients are happy with their Smile Design plan, your Pearl Dental Clinic dentist and the cosmetic laboratory technician will endeavour to create the agreed smile using porcelain veneers.

    Since I last left Pearl Dental Clinic I have barely stopped smiling, something that I had never felt completely free to do for more than 29 years. My whole experience with Pearl and their friendly and professional staff from start to finish has been an enjoyable, and most importantly, successful one! From the preliminary consultation to the finished result it has been a pleasure to have been their patient. After damaging my teeth as a child due to bad dental advice, exactly the opposite of what I have experienced here and some overcrowding, I had never been able to really express myself when I was happy or found something funny in fear of showing my teeth - that now has all changed after having Emax veneers fitted by Dr Mohsen J. Esfahani. My hope when starting this process was to find a dental surgeon that would be capable of improving my smile, even if only by a small amount. What has been achieved by this talented dentist has greatly exceeded my expectations.
    Not only are my teeth now straight and white, they look so natural and fit in my mouth perfectly with not even the slightest hint of discomfort, pain or sensitivity, in fact within only a couple of days they felt like they were my own teeth - except the only difference being they look a million times better! Ive even since been told by people that I have just met things like oh, wow, you have nice teeth dont you or something similar nice things about my teeth that I truly felt I would never hear anyone say to me. I guess what was so surprising was the warm and honest approach to how Pearl and Mohsen go about their business.
    Not once did I feel pressured into making a decision before every eventuality was explained to me, it wasnt a case of just go for the most expensive option, well bung them on and then if you dont like them tough. I was given all the facts on what treatment would be best for me taking into account the condition and shape of my teeth and the decision was then left completely to me.
    The trial smile gave me a good idea of how they would look, and at every step of the process I was only charged for what I had agreed on that day, and was given the chance to either adjust or change my mind about the treatment at any time. The time and precision that Mohsen put into my teeth was again surprising, almost like an artist who would not be happy until their painting was to their perfection, he concentrated on every fine little detail to make sure they would look the very best they possibly could and I truly feel they do! I cant thank Mohsen and Pearl enough for changing my life and allowing me to smile with freedom for the first time since being a child, a time when I first realised I felt conscious about my teeth.
    Thanks to them this feeling is now in the past and I no longer have to close, or put my hand in front of my mouth when enjoying a moment with friends, family or in fact any social situation. I now look at people that I would have once envied and think I have nicer teeth than them and thats a great feeling! If you are thinking about improving your smile in any way, and have thought about paying Pearl a visit then I suggest that you do exactly that, I genuinely feel from the heart that I could have gone elsewhere and paid double the price and still would have not been as happy as I am now with my new and wonderful smile.

    A sincerely satisfied customer

  • Hi Vahid,

    Gemma Cooper

    Sorry I have taken ages to write this I have been busy showing off my gorgeous new teeth. Vahid thank you so much for my amazing new teeth and gum line I cant stop smiling, I used to always keep my mouth closed when people took pictures or I met them for the first time, now I have so much more confidence and don't give it a second thought.
    At every stage of my treatment I was made to feel welcome and at ease with Vahid explaining what would be happening. All the staff at Pearl are helpful and friendly, I will be recommending you to everyone and anyone.
    I never in my wildest dreams thought I could be someone who has nice teeth and not only that but people comment on them too, These exceeded my expectations and have truly changed my life. Once again thank you so much Vahid.

    P.s hope you are well.
    Kindest warmest regards

  • Dear Dr. Vahid Motahar,

    Nelson from London

    I don't have the words to express my gratitudes, a thank you woudn't be enough to translate my joy and happiness, because ever since i was little, i was always bullyed and insulted because of my teeth, i mean all teeth, i always considered my teeth problem the worst in the world, because though they are healthy, they WERE extremely YELLOW, i couldn't SMILE, people used to look at my teeth and wonder what is this? but now i'm smiling a lot and all the time, i also have to say that the outcome of this treatment is much HIGHER than what i was expecting, thank you so much and God bless you!
