Smile Design FAQs

If the appearance of your smile is marred by aesthetic concerns, you may be a candidate for a smile design with one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments. Review the following frequently asked questions to learn more about smile design procedures.

What is a smile design?

A smile design involves any number of cosmetic procedures designed to address the aesthetic concerns that prevent your smile from looking its best. The smile design process is customized to meet each patient’s individual needs for attractive, natural-looking results. If necessary, underlying dental health concerns should be addressed before the smile design process is started.

What procedures are involved?

Any combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures may be used in a smile design, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental implants, and dental crowns. These procedures can address tooth discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, tooth misalignment, missing teeth, damaged teeth, and other common cosmetic concerns that can detract from a person’s smile.

How do you get a smile design?

The first step in the smile design process is a consultation with an experienced cosmetic dentist. During this initial appointment, the dentist will review your concerns and examine your teeth and gums. You will discuss a treatment plan, costs, and any other concerns you may have before deciding if a smile design is right for you. Typically, the smile design procedure is completed over the course of multiple visits, but most patients find that the results are well worth the wait.
