What Is A Canted Midline?

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Mechanicsville Cosmetic Dentists

At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we consider many factors when designing a smile for one of our patients. One of the elements involved is the facial midline.

We consider the length and angle of the facial midline to properly position porcelain crowns, veneers, and dental implants. When front teeth restorations do not line up with the facial midline, it is called a canted midline. This is something that experience has taught us to avoid.

Many people do not realize the level of 3-D engineering required in cosmetic dentistry. In addition to the orientation in relation to the facial midline, there is also the angle and size of the teeth in relation to each other and in relation to the size and shape of the lips and gums.

If you are considering an extensive smile makeover, you certainly don’t want to entrust your smile to just any cosmetic dentist.

At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we use cosmetic dentistry to create beautiful new smiles for our patients, every day. Other services include general and family dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
