What are beautiful teeth?

Beautiful teeth are subjective. Nevertheless, many people associate a beautiful smile with white, straight and even teeth. Today’s beauty standards are inspired by Hollywood stars and the so-called Hollywood smile is becoming increasingly popular.

Scientific definition of beautiful teeth

Did you know that there is a scientific definition of beautiful teeth? The so-called golden proportion is calculated from the width and length of the teeth in relation to the gums and lips. Depending on the results of this calculation, the aesthetics of the teeth should be particularly harmonious or not. However, this calculation is relative because everyone perceives beautiful teeth and a beautiful smile differently.

Not all people are born with naturally straight or beautiful teeth. But fortunately this is not a problem anymore, since there are various methods to get beautiful teeth and a pretty smile.

How do I get beautiful teeth?

Beautiful teeth are closely linked to good dental and oral hygiene. But also malocclusions or other smaller dental defects can be corrected with state-of-the-art methods and in a short period of time. These methods include:

  • Aligners
  • Veneers
  • Whitening (bleaching)
  • Gum correction / Gum lift with a diode laser

Beautiful teeth with Aligners

Aligners are plastic braces that can gradually move the teeth into the desired position in a short time. Compared to other types of dental braces, they are completely transparent. The custom-fit aligners are manufactured by taking a 3D scan of the jaw and teeth. If you would like to learn more about other types of dental splints, you can find more information in our dedicated article.

How do aligners work?

Aligners exert a gentle pressure on the teeth, bringing them into the desired position. Every 2 weeks the patient switches to new aligners, which shift the teeth into the final position step by step.

Who are clear aligners for?

Clear aligners can correct mild to moderate malocclusions, making aligners one of the easiest and most affordable devices to get beautiful teeth as an adult.

What malpositions can clear aligners fix?

Aligners can correct the following dental malocclusions:

A beautiful smile with veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin ceramic shells, which are attached to the desired teeth to cover up discolourations, gaps or uneven teeth. Veneers are durable, have a natural look and do not discolour.

How does a Veneer treatment work?

  • 1st appointment: 3D scan of your teeth
  • 2nd appointment: discussion of your personal treatment plan with your dentist. You will choose shape and colour together and talk about all the details regarding the treatment.
  • 3rd appointment: the dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneers and you will get your temporary veneers. At this point you will see your new and beautiful smile in person and you can still make final adjustments before ordering the final veneers.
  • 4th appointment: application of the final veneers. When you leave the practice, you will already have your new and radiant smile!

Who are veneers for?

Good to know

As a general rule, teeth whitening has to be repeated on a regular basis, as our natural teeth can discolour over time. This has nothing to do with good oral hygiene. It is a natural ageing process. Veneers are an efficient solution to get beautiful white teeth in the long term.

Can you get beautiful teeth with toothpaste?

Whitening toothpaste

Conventional whitening toothpastes that you find in stores usually do not guarantee long-lasting results. You should also be careful with some whitening toothpastes: small particles can erode tooth substance and leave tiny cracks in the tooth surface. These cracks can accumulate discolouration, which is difficult to neutralise.

Professional bleaching and home bleaching

However, there are also other types of whitening methods that provide slightly more lasting results. Teeth can be whitened both professionally in a dental practice or at home. With in-office whitening in dental practices, the concentration of the whitening gel is usually higher, which leads to stronger and longer-lasting results. However, you should be careful with every whitening: teeth can become temporarily sensitive.

A beautiful smile thanks to gum correction

Even after finishing your dental correction, you might still not be completely happy with your smile. This may be the case if the shape of the gums is uneven or if too much gum is displayed (gummy smile).

The solution? A gum correction. This gives your new smile the finishing touch and permanently removes flaws on the gums.

How much does a gum correction cost?

At bestsmile, a gum correction for 1 tooth starts at CHF 200 and is possible only in combination with an Aligner or Veneer treatment.

Professional tooth cleaning

Once you’re happy with your new and beautiful smile, the goal is to keep it as long as possible. An impeccable oral hygiene at home and a professional tooth cleaning at the dentist’s office are therefore essential.

Wire retainer

After straightening your teeth with Aligners, we suggest applying a wire retainer. The wire is attached to the inner surface of the teeth, is not visible, does not interfere and holds the teeth in the new position.

Night Guard

A grinding guard can also be a great solution to keep your teeth beautiful as long as possible and at the same time alleviate the effects of bruxism.

Protect your teeth with a grinding guard

A grinding guard protects your teeth from wear and tear and keeps your smile beautiful after an Aligner or a Veneer treatment. In short, a grinding guard:

  • protects against tooth wear
  • relieves your jaw muscles
  • helps with pain in the temporomandibular joint
