Emerging trends and concepts in aesthetic dentistry

Vizajism comes from the French word visage, meaning “face”. This concept first emerged as a method used by architects in the early 1930s. Brazilian dentist Braulio Paolucci was the first to think that the method could be applied in dental aesthetics. Despite the standard smile technique applied today with visajism, not only the external appearance of the person concerned with aesthetics; It has been reported that the psychological structure, behavior patterns and established habits should be included in these studies.

How is visage applied?

First, the patient’s face is photographed.
An interview is held with the patient expressing his/her basic character traits and wishes and desires for what he/she wants.
With the 3D smile technique, patients decide on the option that suits them together with their doctors. If necessary, appropriate alternatives are determined by consulting with the plastic surgeon on the 3D image of the face. This is a harmonization. Correcting a single tooth, a nose, or a prominent ear alone may not be enough sometimes.
All the information obtained about the patients is used in the treatment to be performed. The result is shared with the whole team and the patient…

Our face in such studies; areas of our face; forehead area, nose area, lip area, chin area, golden ratios in teeth, etc… all similar data give clues about your character and behavior patterns to your doctor. . If you look at the forehead, the proportions are normal, but you are using your mimic muscles too much. This situation; maybe it makes you look much older. Then pictures, models are opened for discussion in order to better understand what is going on. Here, the dentist, your plastic surgeon, the patient, even your laboratory, everyone comes up with their ideas and as a result, 3D models of what we want are created. Here the aim is not only mechanical aesthetics; It is aimed to reflect the prostheses and applications that reflect the person’s soul and structure, including the person’s soul. . Sometimes, as a dr, I always thought of this: Like spending time with the patient at a certain time to understand the soul and character of the person. For example, how does he talk on the phone? How do you address your friends? How he wears, how he uses his mimic muscles, etc. It’s like photographing and archiving it in daily life. It has always been important to me …S It made more sense to me to reflect and archive people’s daily life behaviors in photo frames, besides photographing only in the clinic. ……For example: If you are a stubborn person, your tooth design is arranged according to this feature, more aggressive lines are revealed. Or, “Actually, I want to file down my stubbornness and appear more moderate.” If you say, models with a different design, models with more softened lines are applied to you. The important thing in this method is that your feelings and emotions are reflected and the team can feel it.

It is as if these kinds of works are actually applied by tailors as a personalized garment. haute couture’(It is a fashion term that comes from French and means a specially designed dress designed according to one’s special taste. Its exact equivalent is “bespoke”.)

These studies show that aesthetic dentistry, like other branches of dentistry, will become a branch of science in time, and that even a touch of your smile and face, like a pinch of salt joining a meal or a last brush stroke on the canvas of an artist, tells us how. It will make us aware that it gives meaning.

In the end…. the newly developed concept of personal visage; facial applications, prostheses, a multidisciplinary approach that includes the contribution of dentists, plastic surgeons, patients, laboratories, nurses, etc…. the aim here is to create and apply things that are the same for everyone as a factory, people with the same appearance. instead of creating an army; It is to ensure that studies that are suitable for the person’s temperament, structure and mood and that will motivate him in that direction are revealed.

I wish all beauties to be with you. Dr. Suhan SUNGUR
