Beauty, according to Oxford dictionary, is defined as the combination of qualities that are pleasing to both the senses and the logic of the human being. Among these qualities, those that appeal to the sense of sight; shape, color and form.
Although most views and definitions about beauty are philosophical, it has been a common idea that it generally gives pleasure to the eye and logic of the observer.
However, knowingly or unknowingly, pleasing proportional relationships can only be achieved by following certain rules. Therefore, the relationship between beauty and numerical values is undeniable. Pythagoras was the first to evaluate aesthetic perception in a mathematical order. Pythagoras defined the concept of the ‘Golden Ratio’, which relates nature and beauty with science and numbers, in the fifth century BC.
Golden ratio; It is a geometric and numerical ratio relation observed between parts of a whole in mathematics and art, which is thought to give the most perfect dimensions in terms of harmony.
In dentistry, the “Golden Ratio” is a mathematical theory about the proportions of a set of teeth. Proportion must be sought in a pleasant set of teeth. To achieve facial harmony, the entire anterior tooth composition must be treated as a whole painting. The patient should be evaluated as a whole and other elements of the facial structure should form the frame of this picture.
What is smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a customized treatment plan designed to enhance various cosmetic aspects of the teeth and smile. Individuals who want to change the color, size, shape and / or arrangement of the teeth, as well as repair tooth damage, change old dental aesthetics and / or restore oral health, can achieve all their goals with a meticulously planned smile make-up.
Often our patients want a combination of several cosmetic dentistry procedures (or Dr. Önal will recommend) to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results. This may include completing Invisalign® orthodontic treatment with the Zoom!® teeth whitening technique, or perhaps shaping the gums and placing a fine porcelain veneer set. Whatever your preferences, Global Dental Center is happy to work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs and aesthetic goals.

Who is a candidate for smile aesthetics?
Almost anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile can be a candidate for a smile makeover; However, if you have severe tooth damage, missing teeth, or signs of widespread disease, you may be a better candidate for a procedure called a full mouth restoration. While a smile makeover typically includes more cosmetic treatments, a full mouth restoration plan may include more advanced and invasive procedures such as placement of dental implants, periodontal treatment, and restorative procedures. While there are differences between smile aesthetics and full mouth restoration, the end goal is generally the same: creating a healthy, functional, beautiful smile that boosts self-confidence! Whatever your dental concerns, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with our doctors to discuss your treatment options and begin your journey to a wonderful new smile.

Your smile transformation may include a mix of treatments and procedures to create the ideal smile you’re looking for. During your consultation, our doctors will discuss which smile enhancements they think will produce the best results.

- Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material that can hide a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues in a single conservative procedure. High-quality coatings can provide a dramatic smile transformation that is smudge-proof, natural-looking and long-lasting.
- Dental Implants – Dental implants are the current gold standard for replacing missing teeth with results that look, feel and function very much like natural teeth.
- Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth whitening treatments in the office and at home can lighten most tooth stains and discolorations for a brighter, whiter smile.
- Invisalign – Invisalign is the most modern, convenient and discreet way to fix your smile. The process uses a series of clear plastic aligners to slide teeth into place without the need for traditional wires and brackets.

With gingival reshaping techniques, Dr.Kartöz can create a more balanced, symmetrical and proportional gingival line that can lengthen the appearance of your teeth and/or improve the overall appearance of your smile.
