More Than Cosmetic Dentistry – A Beautiful Smile Can Lead To Health And Success

From the beginning of time man has just known what looks good and at first didn’t know exactly why. Flowers are beautiful. Some architectural structures look good and then there is the beautiful smile and face. But why do these things look good to us? The Greeks actually defined the mathematical components of beauty and were able to calculate it. They called it the “golden ratio also known as the Golden Proportion.” Not understanding why, they knew that it felt good and it looked good, and they incorporated it into much of their art and into many of their buildings (including the Parthenon, which is generally considered to be antiquity’s most perfect structure)

The Golden Proportion is a fundamental ratio found over and over again in nature that seems to please the human eye. Geometrically, it can be defined as the ratio obtained if a line is divided so that the length of the shorter segment is in the same proportion to that of the longer segment as the length of the longer segment is to the entire line. Mathematically, these ratios are such that the longer segment is 1.618054 times the length of the shorter segment, while the shorter is 0.618054 times the longer.

The secret was lost with the fall of Greece, but it began to resurface in the 16th century when Leonardo da Vinci utilized it in his painting and sculpture. Soon, many of the masters began to proportion their canvases according to the golden ratio, and it is still the shape most preferred today from anything from credit cards, car grills, to table tops.

So what does this have to do with teeth? A beautiful smile also conforms to the Golden Proportion. If you look directly at the perfect smile you will note that the central incisor width is 1.6 times the width of the lateral incisor and the cuspid is .6 times the width of the lateral incisor.

Not only does the beautiful smile conform to the Golden proportion but the symmetry is associated with health. Overlapped disfigured teeth are much more likely to be diseased. Maligned, decayed, discolored teeth most often represent overall poor health. Many systemic disorders are associated with dental diseases manifested by inflamed asymmetrical tissue conditions such as gum loss and inflamed swollen gums. Unattractive teeth are directly associated with poor general health. The beautiful smile is a healthy smile.

A cosmetically pleasing smile is the first thing people notice about you. The person with a smile that does not approach the esthetic ideal will most often be considered unattractive and unhealthy even if they have a great personality. The selection process for business, fun, sports, and especially a mate frequently begins with the most attractive prospect first. It’s just easier when the smile is cosmetically pleasing and person is more attractive otherwise. The selection process is a natural process because we instinctively know that the more attractive more symmetrical a prospect is the more likely that person is to be healthy and successful. Symmetry is associated with health and athletic performance. Studies have shown that the most successful athletes have higher degrees of symmetry. So the symmetrical pleasing smile is just another example of your success potential. The beautiful smile often leads to success in business and mate selection.

What if you are not born with that perfect smile? Correcting your smile is one of the easiest things that you can do to improve your actual health and the way that others see you.

Short Beauty and Makeup Tips

Charlie Chaplin said “I had no idea of the character. But the moment I was dressed, the clothes and the make-up made me feel the person he was. I began to know him, and by the time I walked onto the stage he was fully born.” This quote reflects the importance of beauty and makeup and that it can change the perception of people.

There are certain things that require prior knowledge. These include: foundations, eye shadows, eye liners, concealers, lipsticks and many more. Foundations are flesh-toned cosmetics applied to facial skin for creating an even and uniform complexion. Concealers are used to hide pimples and blemishes. Eye shadows and eyeliners are used to darken the eyelids to make them prominent. And lipsticks are used to make the lips prominent and reflect the beauty of the lips.

There are hundreds of beauty and makeup tips. Some of the more prominent and widely used beauty tips include the proper application of foundation on face, the use of eye shadows and eye liners, the proper use of lipsticks and how to conceal blemishes and pimples. Using foundation is important as it helps in unifying and smoothen the color of the facial skin. Use a foundation-powder of a renowned company which has been tested for any side effects. This will help in preventing allergies.

Apply the foundation-powder on your arm to get a match for your skin. Sometimes the foundation-powder seems to have the same color while there is a difference. Apply the foundation smoothly and gently on your facial skin. As the facial skin is very sensitive, a hard rub can cause skin damage. Don’t keep on applying the foundation-powder again and again to match the skin color instead use another one which is a closer for your skin color. Using too much foundation powder can cause skin damage because foundation is a cosmetic made of different elements. Gentle rub and less quantity of foundation-powder is the best way.

In order to portray a darker look of the eyebrows, the eyeliners are used. Be sure to use eyeliner that is well-known and is tested for side effects. Eye is the most delicate and sensitive part of the body, the eyeliner should be appropriately used. Use a sponge applicator for eye lining. Tilt your head and keep your eyes half open so that you can see yourself in the mirror while applying the eyeliner. Using a pencil eyeliner is much easier then the liquid eyeliner although the liquid eyeliner provides a brighter and bolder look to the eye.

One main part of a simple makeup includes the use of lipstick. Choose the lipstick that best matches your skin tone and the color of the cloths you are wearing. Matching a lipstick can be a little hectic. Clean your lips with a tissue paper before applying the lipstick. Apply the lipstick to the lower lip first and then press the lips together to transfer some part of the lipstick to the upper lip. This will help in smoothing the surface of the lip. Now cover the remaining part of the lips and then place a tissue paper in between the lips and press them together. This will help in creating a uniform layer of lipstick. All these tips are for a basic and simple makeup and are very effective.
