    59. 59. Component #1: Lips<br />The lips have been compared to a frame that sets off the image of your smile<br />Enhancing or correcting the shape, fullness and symmetry of your lips can make your smile seem fuller<br />For optimal esthetics, your facial features should line up to your teeth and lip lines<br />When your lips form a broad smile, an imaginary line can be drawn through the corners of the mouth<br />The right amount of upper front tooth revealed below this line helps create a vibrant, youthful image<br />© New York Smile Design 2010<br />34<br />
    60. 60. Component #2: The Midline<br />The starting point of any smile design is the facial midline – the imaginary vertical line drawn between the front two upper teeth<br />For optimal esthetic value, the facial midline should be in the middle of the face<br />The most accurate approach to determining the facial midline focuses on two facial landmarks:<br />a point between the eyebrows and the Cupid's bow in the center of the upper lip<br />By drawing a line between these landmarks, dentists can locate the position of the facial midline while also determining the midline's direction<br />© New York Smile Design 2010<br />35<br />
    61. 61. Component #4: The Smile Line<br />Your smile line is the line created by the top of your lower lip<br />In an ideal smile line, the edges of your upper teeth should be parallel to your lower lip when you smile<br />The bottom of your lower lip should have the same line as the gums of your lower jaw<br />This should always be a standard, regardless of the size or shape of your smile<br />© New York Smile Design 2010<br />36<br />
    62. 62. Component #4: Teeth<br />Attractive smiles have various things in common: <br />Whiteness<br />Unstained<br />Straight<br />Evenly spaced <br />No gaps between<br />Not crowded or overlapping<br />When you smile, your top teeth should show in just the right proportion to your gums<br />The line where the gums and teeth meet should be smooth and even<br />© New York Smile Design 2010<br />37<br />

    123. 123. © New York Smile Design 2010<br />68<br />Dear Dr. Tabib, Dr. Mello, Stephanie, Yael and Christine:<br />I am still not entirely used to my new smile and sometimes I am caught off guard by my reflection in the mirror – but I must say thank you.<br />My life has changed. I have always loved to smile and now I do it with something close to abandon. <br />Stephanie, thank you for reassuring me when I was anxious. <br />Yael, thank you for the noodle soup and for making me laugh so hard I spit it out. <br />Christine, especially, thank you for your kindness and willingness to help – you got me through the door that changed my life forever.<br />And Drs. Mello and Tabib, thank you for your excellent care. <br />I am forever grateful to you all. Thank you, Zakia<br />Testimonials<br />
    124. 124. © New York Smile Design 2010<br />69<br />Dear Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello:<br />I am grateful to you both for many reasons. Last year I walked into your office without an appointment. Christine’s warm smile and kind assistance in answering some basic questions on cosmetic dentistry made me feel welcome. The professionalism that was executed left a lasting impression and I was compelled to return for an official consultation and formal with you and your staff. I was relieved after researching many dentists to have finally found an office that delivers quality across the board on all my key criteria: doctor’s credentials, portfolio, associated lab, professionalism, and sincerity of staff, as well as hygiene. My experience has been very positive. One year later, I am so pleased with the results that I am now considering a career in cosmetic dentistry! Working with people to achieve their desired outcome, enhancing their lives, all the meanwhile practicing medicine and always staying abreast of the current health topics and advancements in very alluring. Your leading example has played an integral role in helping me shape my future, both personally and professionally. <br />Thank you Drs. Tabib and Mello: Your commitment to excellence has transformed my life. Sincerely, Daniela<br />Testimonials<br />
    125. 125. © New York Smile Design 2010<br />70<br />Dear Dr. Tabib and Team:<br />I just wanted to write to say thank you very much for giving me the best smile I could have ever wanted on my wedding day. We had the most fantastic day and I think I was either smiling or laughing for all of it! At last I have got rid of my awkwardness and feel I finally have the smile that reflects how happy I really am. Thank you also for looking after me so well and always making me feel comfortable during the whole process. I am now back in NY and will be here until September so I’m sure I will get a chance to pop in and see you and show you our wedding photos…enclosed are just a couple for you. I hope you are well. Many thanks again Caroline<br />Testimonials<br />
