Beauty is defined as:
“A combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.”
The natural law of beauty, also known as“the golden proportion”, has fascinated the world for over 2,000 years. This golden proportion uses ratios of length and width, and has served as a formula in all disciplines, from mathematics and science, to art and design.It should be of no surprise that the golden proportion is also an integral component in creating the perfect smile.
Not all facial features contribute equally to the perception of beauty. When it comes to facial attractiveness, there are specific features and factors that guide our assessment of beauty; the five predominant ones include the nose, eyes, lips, smile, and teeth, with beautiful teeth topping the list of most desired physical traits.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that beholder is you. It is subjective – it is about how you want to look and how you want to feel. At Boston Dental, the principles of our smile design concept focus on more than just teeth—we define your beauty by balancing all the elements of the face and how they work together to achieve your idea of the most beautiful and natural smile.
“Love of beauty is taste, the creation of beauty is art.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
