Align, a digital critique of dental normality, is a web-based project that is comprised of two elements: narrative and self portrait. The project furthers the conversation of dental influence in our lives. It is not simply an anatomical part of our human existence but a visual representation of our personal ideals.
Align presents an overview of the various aesthetic styles of dentistry that have been present throughout history, further expressing the fact that dental aesthetics is geographically and socially influenced. Each dental aesthetic examined will be presented with background information on its reasoning, importance and social influence.
