What Is A Canted Midline?

Houston Cosmetic Dentists Dr. David C. Montz considers many factors when designing a smile for any smile makeover patient. One of the smile design elements involved is the facial midline.

The proficient cosmetic dentist considers the length and angle of the facial midline to accurately 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 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 do not want to trust your smile to an inexperienced cosmetic dentist.

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