I wanted to share Karen’s lovely smile – so I snapped the attached photo. Her teeth are perfectly aligned and are the right size and shape. The proportions are appropriate. Her gums and the underlying attachment apparatus are healthy. She has a broad arch and a wide smile. She shows the right amount of gum tissue. (The left lip lifts slightly higher – but thats ok with me.) She comes into the office regularly for exams and preventive care and for me to admire her lovely smile. Her tooth color has darkened somewhat with age – this is natural as she doesn’t smoke or drink red wine. We have discussed tooth whitening – in office whitening or with at-home bleaching trays. Then her very lovely smile will really dazzle!
