ABSTRACT:An attractive smile is the centre of attraction of the face. The smile is the most dominant, bright, moving part of the face and hence noticed first. Currently there has been a shift from traditional treatment goals, such as ideal occlusion and cephalometric standards, to include goals embodying principles of micro esthetics and soft tissue harmony. Orthodontists have an important role to play in smile designing which involves the correction or modification of all the parts that comes in the smile frame, including the upper and lower lips, gingival exposure during smile, the size, color and shape of the teeth and the negative spaces between the tooth and the cheeks. Best esthetics in smile can only be designed by proper understanding of the structures contributing to smile and establishing a good harmony and balance between those structures.
