What Makes a Beautiful Smile?

Some smiles seem naturally attractive. People with what we perceive as a beautiful smile often seem happier, trustworthy, and kind. Studies have proven that those with beautiful smiles are even selected over their peers during job interviews (and might even be offered a higher salary.)

But what is it about a smile that makes it beautiful? A great set of teeth is usually the result of balanced symmetry. From a dental point of view, factors such as whiter teeth with a uniform length, balanced gum exposure, and consistency across the biting edges contribute towards an attractive grin.

Dental problems create a deeper aesthetic impact than we think. A missing tooth for example, causes the bone to shrink. By then, not only does the missing tooth make your smile look unattractive, it also causes premature aging in your face.

Healthy Teeth and Gums

For a photogenic smile, it’s important that both your gums and teeth are healthy. Not caring for our mouths properly or avoiding oral hygiene habits like flossing can lead to several problems. These include cavities in teeth, red or swollen gums, and even tooth loss.

To maintain a beautiful and healthy smile, brush your teeth twice each day and always floss at least once a day. Eat a balanced diet and avoid smoking. And most importantly, visit our Phoenix dentist twice a year for a cleaning to prevent common dental issues.

Tooth Alignment and Color

At our Phoenix office, we take pride in helping our patients achieve their dream smile. Symmetry often involves aligning the teeth as well as enhancing the color so that it’s consistent across several teeth. Some of the ways we can do this are through:


  • Dental bonding
  • Gum recontouring
  • Teeth whitening
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain crowns and veneers
  • Teeth straightening options

It’s More Than Just Your Teeth

While the health and appearance of your teeth are important for your smile to look its best, you cannot ignore the “frame” around them. The significance of well-balanced and fuller lips, healthy pink gums, and smoother cheeks are essential to a stunning smile.

Central Valley Dentistry understands there’s more to a gorgeous mouth than just healthy teeth. We are one of the few dental offices in Phoenix to offer advanced technology like Liplase ™ treatment, which adds definition and volume to your lips.

Dr. Behbahani is also a Pinhole ® Academy trained and certified dentist. Pinhole is a scalpel-free and minimally invasive procedure to treat receding gums in just one appointment. There’s practically no healing time as we even out your gum tissues.

We also offer skin-revitalizing treatments such as Smoothlase ™. Using  cutting-edge laser technology, we erase fine lines and wrinkles from around your smile and facial tissues. This treatment instantly uplifts your appearance, making you look and feel years younger.
