Finishing procedures in Orthodontics: dental dimensions and proportions (microesthetics). Dental Press J Orthod. 2013 Sept-Oct;18(5):147-74. 1 Adjunct professor of Orthodontics, Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES). 2 Specialist in Orthodontics, Fluminense Federal University (UFF). Objective: The objective of the present article is to describe procedures that can be performed to achieve excellence in orthodontic treatment finishing. The content is limited to microesthetics, which comprises the concept of ideal dental di- mensions and proportions (white esthetics) and its correlation with the periodontium (pink esthetics). Standards of normal- ity are described both in their real dimensions (dental height and width), and in those effectively perceived by the observer, the virtual dimensions. Methods: The best scientific evidence was sought in the literature to support the clinical procedures that must guide the professional to obtain maximum esthetic quality on their treatments. Therefore, it is necessary to inves- tigate what the other specialties in Dentistry expect from Orthodontics and, specially, what they have to offer. Clinical cases will be used to illustrate the dental movement that might maximize treatment outcome and to confront the ideal standards with the current state of the art. Conclusion: Treatment quality is directly related to the amount of procedures imple- mented by the orthodontist, associated with concepts and resources from Periodontics and Dental Prosthesis. Microesthet- ics cannot be seen in isolation, but rather as the key to establish a pleasant smile (miniesthetics) in addition to a harmonious face (macroesthetics) and a human being with high self-esteem (hyper-esthetics). Keywords: Orthodontics. Dentistry. Dental esthetics. Smile. Objetivo: o objetivo do presente artigo é descrever procedimentos que podem ser realizados para alcançar a excelência na finalização do tratamento ortodôntico. Delimita-se o assunto à micro-estética, que abrange o conceito das dimen- sões e proporções dentárias ideais (estética branca) e sua correlação com o periodonto (estética vermelha). Padrões de normalidade são descritos tanto em suas dimensões reais (altura e largura dentária), como naquelas efetivamente percebidas pelo observador, as dimensões virtuais.
