what is canted midline

At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, we consider many factors when designing a smile for any smile makeover patient. One of the smile design elements involved is the facial midline.

The experienced cosmetic dentist takes into account 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 a common mistake found in the cosmetic work of inexperienced cosmetic dentists.

Many men and women do not realize the extent 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 an inferior cosmetic dentist.

When you have a smile design consultation with Doctor Tim Mahoney feel free to ask probing questions about Doctor Mahoney’s experience and technical design procedures. Look at the pictures of some of our smile makeover patients.

We are confident that you will feel comfortable choosing Doctor Mahoney for your smile makeover.
