What is a smile design?

As a comprehensive approach to cosmetic dentistry, smile design focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s smile. This process combines various dental techniques and procedures to correct imperfections and create a more harmonious and attractive smile.

What are the treatments that are part of smile design?

Smile design is customized to each patient’s individual needs and desires, with the goal of achieving a natural, beautiful smile that enhances confidence and self-esteem. Some of the treatments include:

Micro Smile Design is an innovative technique that focuses on making small, precise adjustments and improvements to a patient's smile. Through minimally invasive procedures, it seeks to achieve natural and harmonious results, highlighting the unique beauty of each smile without drastically altering the tooth structure. It is an ideal option for those seeking subtle but significant improvements in their dental appearance.

It involves the application of a peroxide-based whitening gel on the surface of the teeth, which works by removing stains and discolorations caused by smoking, consumption of coffee, tea or other substances, as well as tooth aging. Through in-office sessions, whitening can provide visible results and a brighter, more attractive smile.

Using appliances such as brackets, clear aligners or other devices, the orthodontist applies controlled forces on the teeth to gradually move them into more aligned and functional positions. This process can address problems such as malocclusions, dental crowding, gaps between teeth and bite discrepancies. Through a customized treatment plan, orthodontics can transform the smile and improve the patient's oral health.

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin designed to cover the front of teeth and hide cosmetic flaws such as stains, chips or irregularities. This cosmetic treatment provides a quick and effective solution to improve the appearance of the smile, creating a uniform and natural tooth surface. They can also correct problems with the shape, size or alignment of the teeth, providing long-lasting aesthetic results and a brighter, more attractive smile.

They consist of small titanium pieces that are surgically inserted into the jawbone, acting as artificial roots. Once integrated with the bone, customized dental crowns are placed over them, restoring lost chewing function and dental esthetics. Dental implants not only provide a permanent and safe solution for missing teeth, but also preserve the health of the jawbone and prevent loss of facial volume, providing a complete and natural smile.

The application of composite resins to repair cavities, the placement of dental crowns to cover damaged or weakened teeth, or the performance of fillings to restore proper chewing function. These techniques restore the structural integrity of teeth, improve their esthetic appearance and allow an optimal oral function, thus contributing to the overall oral health and well-being of the patient.

What materials are used to perform a smile design?

To perform a smile design, a variety of materials are used that can be adapted to the needs and aesthetic preferences of each patient:

  • Porcelain:Used to correct stains, chips, gaps between teeth and other imperfections.
  • Composite resin: Used for direct dental veneers, dental restorations and esthetic fillings.
  • Metal and ceramic: Metal provides durability and structural support, while ceramic is used on the visible side for a natural appearance.
  • Zirconia: Zirconia can be matched to the color and shape of natural teeth, providing high quality esthetic results.
  • Composite bonding: Used for direct tooth restorations, such as esthetic fillings, chip repair and minor tooth shape modifications.

Keep in mind that the choice of material will depend on factors such as the location of the tooth to be treated, the patient’s preference, the budget and the recommendations of the dentist or cosmetic dentist.

Frequently asked questions about orthodontic treatment

There are some cases in which braces are necessary for the patient. Some of the cases in which orthodontic treatment is considered are:
Open bite
Misaligned teeth
Crossbite
Overbite and underbite
Crowding

Yes, it is advisable to avoid foods that are sticky, hard or that may get caught in the brackets, as they could damage the appliance or make teeth cleaning difficult. Some examples include sticky candies, hard nuts and very hard foods.

The age for braces can vary, but it is generally recommended that orthodontic treatment begin in adolescence, when most of the permanent teeth have erupted. However, adults can also benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Invisible aligners are suitable for adolescents and adults with various types of malocclusions. They are particularly popular with those who prefer an esthetic and removable option to correct dental alignment. The suitability of treatment will depend on the orthodontist's evaluation.

Orthodontic Testimonials in MDE Care

My daughter has received excellent care from Dr. Juan Nicolas. It was very important to have a pediatric dentist from the early years to reduce the natural fears that children have to dentistry and to generate in my daughter a confidence in her doctor. Also that as parents we can be informed every step of the way
Juan David Mejía
“Our deepest thanks to Dr. Nicolás, who returned (literally) the smile to our daughter Violeta. In summary: our daughter had teeth (especially the upper ones) with cavities, from 4 years old they began to depigment and gradually turned black until they almost seemed toothless. We went to many places but none of them gave us a solution, they just said that it was necessary to operate. As a last option, friends whom we hold in high regard recommended Dr. Nicolás, and we decided to start treatment with him. He was always honest with us. Treatment and commitment were needed, but thanks to this, today my daughter, who is now 7 years old, can smile without shame, feels good, and is with her teeth very healthy. We truly thank the doctor and recommend him 1000% 🥰”
