Smile Analysis

You can do the following smile analysis at home. Looking into a full face, close up mirror, analyse your smile in two phases - slight smile and full smile.

Yes No
Slight Smile
1. In a slight smile, with teeth parted, do the tips of the front teeth show?
   
2.Are the two upper front teeth slightly longer than the adjacent teeth?    
3. Are they too long?    
4. Are the upper six front teeth even in length?    
5. Do all the front teeth come in contact with each other?    
6. Are the front teeth straight (versus being crooked, overlapping or protruding)?    
Full Smile
7. Smiling more, are the teeth of one colour?
   
8. Do your teeth have white or brown stains?    
9. Are the front teeth that contain fillings matched with other teeth so that they are unnoticed?    
10. Is one front tooth darker than the rest?    
11. Are the lower six front teeth straight?    
12. Are they even in appearance?    
13. In a full smile, normally the back teeth show. Are these teeth free of stains and discolourations from unsightly restorations?    
14. Do the necks of the teeth have erosion, a ditched- in V that can be seen or felt with the fingernail?    
15. In a full smile, does the top lip rise above the necks of the teeth so that the gums show?
