Oftentimes, your smile is the first characteristic noticed by others.

Dental imperfections can put a damper on your confidence.

But there’s a special kind of dentistry that’s centered around crafting a smile you love.

And it’s called smile design dentistry.

In this blog, we’ll walk you through what smile design is, what it entails, and more.

Let’s dive in.

What is smile design dentistry?

Smile design dentistry is a form of cosmetic dentistry that’s designed specifically for you. It involves combining a variety of treatments to help you achieve your perfect smile.

It could include one or a combination of dental services, including:

It conceals any dental flaws, restoring your smile’s appearance and confidence.

How will you know if you’ll love your new smile?

Cosmetic dentists can take away your worries by creating wax-ups.

Once they fully understand your desires, they’ll apply wax to a model of your teeth to create a preview of your smile before you commit to the treatment- so there’s no risk.

What are the benefits of smile design?

The main benefit of a smile design is that you’ll walk away with a beautiful Hollywood smile and newfound confidence!

Here’s a breakdown of how these cosmetic dentistry treatments can help you:

Porcelain Veneers: Hide imperfections

Veneers are perfect for masking chips and cracks, permanent staining and discoloration, spaces and gaps, misalignment, and old, unsightly dental work.

Porcelain is strong enough to withstand the pressure of normal chewing function. It’ll reflect light much like your natural teeth, and they’ll blend right in with your smile.

So no one will know you’re wearing veneers. They’ll only see that you have a stunning smile!

Invisalign: Straighten your smile

Invisalign involves clear aligners that are customized to fit your unique smile perfectly. They’re virtually invisible, so no one will notice you’re in treatment.

They’ll gently and gradually guide your teeth into proper alignment without all the metal wires and brackets that come with traditional braces.

That means no irritation, and you’ll be able to clean your teeth much easier. The treatment is typically completed faster than braces, too.

Plus, Invisalign is removable so that you enjoy all your favorite foods without any restrictions.

Teeth Whitening: Get a whiter, brighter smile

This popular treatment option is sure to give you glistening, pearly whites. Teeth whitening removes stains from your teeth immediately.

It strengthens your teeth and increases dental health because it kills bacteria that may cause gum disease or tooth decay.

With any of the treatments, you’ll get an unbeatable smile that you’ll want to show off.

How much does a smile design cost?

Because smile design is different for every patient, the cost will vary.

It’ll depend on what treatments you get.

Your insurance may cover certain aspects of the design, such as crowns or implants.
