Abstract: A beautiful and harmonious smile can make a person smarter or even more popular. When assessing a smile, our opinion can be influenced by several factors: previous medical studies, age or sex. Our paper aims to classify the aspects that are considered when admiring a smile depending on the factors mentioned above. Results showed that regardless of gender, both female and males consider that white and straight teeth are the most important aspects. On the other hand, laypersons agree that white and straight teeth are the most important, while dentists and orthodontist take also into consideration a gingival exposure of 0-3mm. Overall, a person`s opinion can be influenced considerably by previous medical studies and by the age of 45.
Keywords: smile, white teeth, straight teeth, gingival exposure.
