An article written by Brianna Devito states that, image is our expression of beauty and the perceptual experience of pleasure to our senses. Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ our world is depicted with infinite shades of magnificence. However, this romantic view of beauty is plagued by society’s means of standardization. Like modern society, ancient civilizations were obsessed with beauty, so they configured the golden ratio to characterize this abstract term. This ratio, 1:1.6, is repeatedly found all throughout nature’s beauties. It stresses proportionality, harmony, and rationality, which brilliantly exemplify how we perceive beauty. The perception of beauty “is the relational proportion of our physical features that is the primary factor in determining the conscious or subconscious, of beauty.” (Singla 74) Beauty has evolved into something numerical and tangible, which has lead to a society filled with beauty seekers striving to achieve absolute perfection.
One of the easiest ways to begin this journey is through our smile and our teeth, since “a beautiful smile is an added asset to a beautiful face.” (Singla 76) An aligned, full, bright, and welcoming smile is aesthetically pleasing and increasingly more important to society. Since teeth have become part of the beauty equation, we have paved the way for a specialized dentistry focused on the alignment and occlusion of teeth: orthodontics.
