ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of the study is to investigate the perception and satisfaction of faces and the need for aesthetic dental treatments in college students. Methods: A self-reported questionnaire was completed by 247 college students in Suncheon from August 29 to September 2, 2016. The questionnaire consisted of satisfaction of face (16 items), perception of the face (7 items), need for aesthetic dental treatment (3 items), and general characteristics of the study subjects (8 items). Tooth shade was measured using a shade guide (VITA classical shade guide, VITA North America, Chicago, USA). Data was analyzed using t test, ANOVA, and post hoc Scheffé test. Results: The students were satisfied with eye, mouth corner, and lip, but they were not satisfied with tooth shade, bilateral symmetry of face, and angle of jaw. The students tended to be concious of perception of others. Their most common tooth shade was orange and yellow. They preferred to have a brighter tooth color. Conclusions: To satisfy the needs of patients, it is important to understand the perception and satisfaction of face and the need for aesthetic dental treatment.
