Smile Design Dentistry

There’s a saying, “Your smile says a lot about you and offers others an insight into how you feel inside.” Everybody wants a beautiful smile, which they can now get with smile design dentistry.

Smile Design Dentistry or Smile Design is a cosmetic procedure that restores the imperfections, health, and appearance of your teeth with the aid of various treatments.

Human teeth tend to wear down, chip, or discolor over time. But with the help of customized treatment, you can get a straighter, whiter, and more natural-looking smile.

What are Some Advantages of Smile Design Dentistry

Smile design dentistry is usually used to restore or improve the appearance and, in some cases, even the functionality of your teeth. Your dentist thoroughly examines your teeth and then proposes a series of treatments after factoring in your smile expectations. 

Some key advantages of smile design dentistry are as follows:

  • Extensive Planning

    Smile design requires a thorough study of the patient’s health and esthetics, alongside oral and dental functions. After that, the teeth’s color, size, shape, and position are planned to determine the treatments required to achieve the desired result.

  • Use of Advanced Tech

    State-of-the-art scanners, cameras, and advanced computer software are used to give you a perfect smile. These tools are comfortable for the patient and provide accurate results.

  • Previewing the Outcome

    You can see the outcome of the treatment on the computer screen before the start of the treatment; this helps you decide whether the results are worth it or not. 

  • Increases Self-Esteem

    Smile is the synonym for confidence, and having a great smile generates greater confidence. When you have your desired smile, you feel more confident while speaking.

  • Improves Oral Health

    When you have clean and properly positioned teeth, it automatically becomes easy to maintain optimal oral health.

Procedures Involved in Smile Design Dentistry

When you visit the office of Minneapolis Dental regarding issues related to your teeth, our dentists first conduct an oral examination. After examining your teeth thoroughly, they suggest different procedures under  Smile Design Dentistry that’ll be a good fit for restoring your smile. 

These include:


  • Dental Implants

They’re a good option when you’re missing one or more teeth in a prominent position. They’re strong, durable, and designed to look like natural teeth. Implants are inserted into your jawbone, and a tooth crown is attached along with an abutment.

  • Smile Makeover

A smile makeover consists of several cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve your smile. Over the years, our teeth have taken a beating due to stomach acid, foods that stain our teeth, and accidents that cause unsightly cracks or chips in our natural teeth. A smile makeover can change your life completely and give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. 

  • Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain Crowns, also known as dental crowns or dental caps, are used to cover a decayed tooth to give it the look of a natural tooth. They’re made from a variety of materials. Some crowns are made of metal, while others are designed to look like natural teeth. Unlike a dental filling, crowns restore the entire tooth to function and feel natural.

  • Dental Bridges

If several of your teeth in a row need to be replaced, then an implant-supported bridge is the perfect option to restore your missing teeth. A dental implant at either end supports a bridge of three or four teeth; also, it’s way cheaper than getting 3-4 individual implants.

  • Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored covers applied directly over existing teeth. They’re used to change the cover surface flaws, shape, and size of teeth. At the same time, they also change tooth color and close any gaps between teeth. Veneers can be used for a single problem tooth or entire front teeth. A whole set of veneers is among the quickest ways to get a complete smile makeover.

  • Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding, also called composite resin bonding, is a cosmetic technique used to improve the aesthetic of your smile, though it isn’t a solution to any medical or structural issues in your teeth. Dental Bonding usually focuses on the front teeth. In dental bonding, dentists use composite resin (a putty-like substance) over the tooth, and when the resin becomes stiff, it is polished to resemble a natural tooth.

  • MTM Clear Aligner

This is the newest way to straighten your teeth; similar to Invisalign, MTM is an undetectable way to align your smile. It does not cause any inconvenience or discomfort, as seen in the case of metal braces. 

MTM is ideal for people with mild to moderate spacing or crookedness. Like Invisalign aligners, you can also remove MTM aligners to continue your oral hygiene routine or for a special occasion or a photo!

What is the Cost of Smile Design Dentistry?

Smile design is a priceless investment as it improves your smile, which gives you more confidence. The cost of smile design dentistry varies from patient to patient as everyone’s needs and smile design expectations are quite different. 

Smile design mostly comes under cosmetic procedures, so your insurance policies may not cover it.
