The Mathematics involved in Assessing your Smile!

Studies show that people with brighter teeth and a great smile are more confident.

A better smile is a sign of youth and good health.

Some even suggest that a healthy, attractive smile can open doors to new relationships and work opportunities perhaps due to greater confidence

Dr Kachhala’s aim is always to create the best smile that nature intended for you, and not a fake smile.

‘Smile Science’

When planning a smile makeover for you, Dr Kachhala says, ‘I will use mathematic principles including concepts such as proportions, symmetry, angles and ratios to assess and diagnose your smile at the very beginning. I need to know exactly what is wrong with your smile in the first place before I can make it better for you!

‘Using these mathematic principles, I’ve developed a list of 14-15 different elements of what constitutes an ideal natural looking smile, and I call this ‘Smile Science’! My job at the beginning would be to methodically assess and measure various aspects of your smile by going through each of the 14-15 elements of ‘Smile Science’ one by one. This enables me to quantify each problem exactly and then I know which the main problems are and which solutions to offer to make your smile better. I have much success this way.

‘I feel in my vast experience that this is better than just looking and relying on a visual assessment of somebody’s smile alone, because there are a lot of subtle factors which you just can’t see unless you follow my methodical approach. I follow these same principles whether somebody wants teeth straightening, teeth whitening or a full smile makeover because ultimately what people are really asking for is a better smile and my job is to assess it thoroughly!
