Through their review, the authors identified seven parameters that are sufficiently and reasonably quantifiable: the smile line, lip line, incisal offset, location of dental and facial midline, incisor angulations and width-to-height ratios of the maxillary anterior teeth, gingival contour, and root coverage and papilla height.

The survey also noted that while Canadians place great importance on the value of a healthy-looking smile only 30 per cent follow the dentist-recommended at home oral care routine of brushing, flossing and rinsing.
