Dr. Saleh And Divine Proportions

Answer: The Principle of Divine Proportion

IT’S TRUE, HIGHLY SKILLED COSMETIC DENTISTS LIKE DR. SALEH use Leonardo da Vinci’s “Principle of Divine Proportion” when they design your gorgeous new smile. Beautiful smiles are proportioned to include consideration of many factors—including your age, lifestyle, and of course, physical characteristics. There are other truisms associated with our teeth themselves—including the fact that teeth tend to get shorter with wear as we age.

Much like an oil painter working on a canvas, Dr. Saleh uses her inspiration and artistic tools to create a smile you love. In some cases, procedural and design techniques include tooth lengthening or shortening. Veneers are also considered sometimes to widen your teeth or broaden a smile. Crowns can bring subtle, yet totally different dimensions to facial proportions. It’s part art, and part science.

Just for kicks, look into a mirror and ask yourself the following questions:

  • Can I draw a vertical line from my pupil to a corner of my mouth?
  • How does my face divide horizontally into thirds?
  • From my nose to chin, does it divide into thirds again?
  • If I look vertically, can I divide it into fifths, each eye being 1/5?

It gets interesting when you begin to notice mother nature’s intricate connections to artistic principles.

Dr. Saleh would add that cosmetic dental procedures are absolutely worth the investment in altering or restoring the ideal proportions for your own physical characteristics. There’s nothing more fulfilling for us, as a team, than witnessing the life-changing transformation that often takes place for many of our patients through smile makeovers.

Have you ever wondered what the impact would be in your life if you had a truly beautiful smile? Is there even just something small you’ve been wondering about? We love creating smiles people absolutely love, and are always more than happy to talk to you about anything.

Chances are, after we’re finished, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.
