Many people think that cosmetic dentistry procedures are just for looks. However, there are some cosmetic problems that are caused by oral health issues. Fixing them will help the look of your smile. But it will also boost your oral health as well. With these cosmetic issues fixed, you can avoid further oral health procedures.
A Digital Approach To Cosmetic Dentistry: Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a revolutionary technology that helps the field of cosmetic dentistry. During the planning phase, it helps map out the treatment better which will result in better results.
By using high-resolution 3-D images and video, this technology can replicate your new smile on a computer screen. The dentist can then design your smile on the screen and makes changes with a click of a mouse. During this process, patients are active in their smile makeover process.
Benefits of Digital Smile Design:
- Better communication between dentists and patients
- Creates a more personalized treatment
- Higher patient success rates
- Improved efficiency and predictability during the treatment planning phase
- Patients can see their new smile before any treatment is performed
- Improved understanding of cosmetic goals

Is dental bonding permanent?
No. Dental bonding can last a long time, but it is not permanent. This cosmetic procedure generally lasts from three to ten years. The composite material that the dentist uses to bond teeth wears down over time. You will need to come in to get a touch-up at some point.
Does it hurt when getting dental veneers?
No. Most patients report very little to no pain during and after the procedure. This is because it is minimally invasive.
Is a dental implant procedure painful?
Dental implant surgery is a minor surgical procedure that an oral surgeon performs with local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth implant site. As a result, most people do not experience significant pain during the procedure. However, some people may experience discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure. The level of discomfort after the procedure can vary from patient to patient.
Some patients may only experience mild discomfort that they can manage with over-the-counter pain medication, while others may experience more significant pain and discomfort. Your dentist will provide instructions on how to manage any discomfort you may experience after the procedure.
How long do dental fillings on teeth last?
Dental fillings can last for ten to fifteen years or more. It is important to practice good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, and to visit your dental team regularly to help ensure that your fillings last as long as possible.
Is a Botox procedure Painful?
A Botox procedure is typically not painful. Most patients say that the sensation of the injections feels like a small pinch, similar to getting an injection at the doctor’s office. The level of discomfort varies from person to person, but it is generally not a painful experience.
Can teeth whitening damage my teeth?
Teeth whitening can damage your teeth if not done correctly. There are potential risks with at-home teeth whitening kits and solutions. They don’t take into account individual factors such as tooth type and existing dental problems. Some dentists recommend avoiding over-the-counter products altogether. Teeth whitening that a professional dentist or orthodontist provides to the public is generally the safest way to go.
