What is a Canted Midline?

cosmetic dentist San Antonio Dr. William Stewart considers many factors when designing a smile for a San Antonio smile makeover client. One of the smile design elements involved is the facial midline. The facial midline can be determined by drawing an imaginary line from the center of the eyebrows to the center of the two peaks in the top lip (Cupid’s bow).

The skilled San Antonio cosmetic dentist considers 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 San Antonio cosmetic dentists.

Most San Antonio dentistry patients 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 San Antonio cosmetic dentist. When you have a smile design consultation with Dr. William Stewart feel free to ask probing questions about Dr. Stewart’s experience and technical design procedures. We are confident that you will feel comfortable choosing Dr. Stewart for your smile makeover.
