The quick answer is "yes."
The more appropriate answer would be that it depends on the desired results and the situation. This is a common mistake made by both patients and dentists. The smile usually does not show “just four or six teeth.” More often than not, the smile shows anywhere from eight to twelve teeth. Depending on the situation and the outcome desired, this is often the amount of teeth needed to allow such a transformation. This is where additional training and knowledge of “smile design” is so important. Imagine having four or six beautiful teeth and the rest not so beautiful! Prior to any smile enhancement being performed, simply pick up a mirror, smile, and count!
