WHAT IS COUTURE SMILE™
The art of creating a smile
Couture Smile® is the art of creating a smile that enhances the features of the face, while crafting a beautiful balance in size, proportion, position, color and angulation of the teeth. It does not only add to the happiness factor of how the patient feels about himself/herself, but actually adds life to the teeth by strengthening the surfaces of teeth that are continuously exposed to wear and tear. A Couture Smile™ provides the emotional wellbeing factor of harmony & improves the facial expressions in all walks of their life.
If you think of the lips as the stage, the gums as the curtains and the teeth as the actors – Couture Smile™ is about placing them correctly on stage. So when a person smiles, it looks natural, beautiful and gives that wow factor.
I realized that beauty lies in individualizing every smile so that the facial expression of the person is in harmony with all aspects of his or her physical traits.
Five years ago, I trained at New York University – Rosenthal Institute of Aesthetic Dentistry and mastered creating smiles with Facial Aesthetic Design. I was able to design every tooth individually to enhance a patient’s smile taking into consideration the way the patients talks, his/her facial expression while speaking, smiling and showing emotions. The science, the design ability and principle of artfully creating individualized smiles is what I call Couture Smile™ – a brand I own.
The entire process is divided into 3-4 appointments and is completed within 2 to 4 weeks.
I come and see patients every day and it’s in the mornings that my creativity works at its best.
