Abstract

Smile aesthetics are one of the important criteria for evaluating the efficacy of orthodontic treatment. The purpose of this study was to assess the differences in the smile aesthetics perceptions of male and female adolescents regarding smile arc, gingival display, and buccal corridor. A selected photograph was modified digitally to obtain three different pictures for each variable. Smile aesthetic perceptions of 35 male and 35 female adolescents regarding the circum oral view were assessed using the Likert scale. There were no significant differences between the perceptions of the male and female adolescents regarding smile arc, gingival display, and buccal corridor. Consonant smile arc, low gingival display, and medium buccal corridor are believed to contribute to the most aesthetically pleasing smile.
