What Is A Canted Midline?

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Minneapolis Cosmetic Dentists Dr. Jamie Sledd considers many factors when designing a smile for any smile makeover patient. One of the smile design elements involved is the facial midline. The facial midline can be established 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 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 cosmetic dentists.

Many individuals do not understand 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 put your smile in the hands of an inexperienced cosmetic dentist.
