Golden Proportion

GOLDEN PROPORTION

The "golden proportioin" is an integral component of smile design.

The Golden Proportion is simply the ratio of 1:1.6.  The ratio was noticed by the ancient Greeks and is found throughout nature, architecture, the human face, and dentition.  We use the "Golden Mean Guage" to determine if things meet the Golden Proportion.
