Treating Your Smile Like A Work Of Art


Answer: The Principle of Divine Proportion

DID YOU KNOW THAT HIGHLY SKILLED COSMETIC DENTISTS LIKE DR. PITTS incorporate Leonardo da Vinci’s “Principle of Divine Proportion” into smile design? It’s true.

When designing something as important as a new smile many factors are taken into account including the patient’s age, lifestyle, and physical characteristics. In addition, there are many truisms associated with teeth in general that Dr. Pitts must also consider—including the fact that teeth tend to shorten with age as they wear.

Much like a fine oil painter working on a canvas, Dr. Pitts fuses his artistic inspiration and experience into each smile he designs. In some instances, your particular case may include tooth lengthening or shortening. Dental veneers are also considered to widen your teeth or broaden a smile and crowns can bring totally new dimensions to a patient’s facial proportions. You’ll be shocked to see how big of a difference even the smallest adjustments can make.

Just for fun, take a few minutes, look in a mirror, and ask yourself the following questions:

> Can I draw a straight line from my pupil to a corner of my mouth?
> Does my face divide into equal thirds horizontally?
> Does the lower third of my face divide into equal thirds (from nose to chin)?
> Does my face divide into equal vertical fifths (5 times the width of one eye)?

How cool is it to notice mother nature’s “divine” and intricate connections to artistic principles!?

Dr. Pitts adds, “Cosmetic dental procedures to obtain a smile you can be proud of is absolutely worth the investment. There’s nothing more fulfilling for me and my team than witnessing the life-altering transformations that take place through smile makeovers.”
