What Is A Canted Midline?

Dayton Cosmetic DentistsOur dentists, Drs. Lou and Nick Vitangeli,  consider many factors when designing a smile for a smile makeover patient. 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 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.

Most 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.

When you have a smile design consultation with us, feel free to ask probing questions about our experience and technical design procedures. Take a look at the pictures of some of our smile makeover patients.

We are confident that you will feel comfortable choosing Drs. Vitangeli for your smile makeover.
