What you should know about the smile design

At Benevita, our goal is to protect your one-of-a-kind smile by designing a personalized treatment using the most advanced dental techniques and technology.

Smile design has recently become a popular term, but it has always been the ultimate goal of aesthetic dentistry. It is essential to repair any damaged teeth beforehand. It is crucial to note that aesthetics should never come at the cost of functionality. Therefore, the combination of the two is necessary for long-term treatment success.


Some smile designs may require only porcelain veneers, while others may require both porcelain veneers and crowns. In some cases, gingivoplasty may be needed to improve the appearance of gums that show any alteration in shape and size.

The appearance of a person's face is crucial in achieving a personalized smile restoration with appropriate individualized tooth shapes. By studying the patient's face initially, a plan can be made to design new individual tooth shapes to achieve a satisfactory outcome. The process of dental esthetic rehabilitation considers facial proportion and is a complex planning process. To successfully complete such a project, several factors must be evaluated, including dental alignment, crown dimension, color, occlusion, and facial proportions. Understanding all the anatomical parameters is essential to creating a harmonious esthetic restoration.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin custom shells usually made from porcelain or resin composite materials that cover a tooth’s front surface to restore its appearance. They are bonded to teeth to change shape, length, and color.


Dental veneers are the aesthetic treatment most in demand today by our patients.

They are durable and very aesthetic restorations, ideal for anterior teeth due to their naturalness and because they are a minimally invasive treatment.

A conservative and respectful preparation method can preserve a significant amount of tooth structure, and an aesthetic result can be obtained.

How much time is required?

The time required for a smile design can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the patient's individual needs and goals, and the treatment approach chosen by the dental professional.

If your teeth are complete, you have good oral health, and you do not require gingivoplasty, you will only need veneers. This procedure may only take a week.
If you need gum surgery, remember that the smile design process only begins eight or ten weeks after healing.

If implants are required due to missing teeth, the process can take six months and a year.


General Considerations:

  1. Initial Consultation and Evaluation: The process typically begins with an initial consultation with a dentist or a cosmetic dentistry specialist. During this appointment, the dentist evaluates the patient's oral health, discusses their concerns and goals, and gathers information about their smile preferences.

  2. Diagnostic and Planning Phase: This involves gathering diagnostic records such as x-rays, photographs, and dental impressions. These records help the dentist assess the patient's oral anatomy, tooth alignment, gum health, and other relevant factors. Based on this information, the dentist can develop a customized treatment plan to achieve the desired smile design.

  3. Treatment Planning and Simulation: Using advanced digital imaging software or physical models, the dentist may create a simulation of the proposed smile design. This allows the patient to visualize the potential outcome of the treatment and provide feedback before any procedures are performed.

  4. Treatment Procedures: The actual treatment procedures involved in smile design can vary widely depending on the specific needs of the patient. Common treatments may include teeth whitening, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, orthodontic treatment, gum contouring, or dental implants. Depending on the case's complexity, the duration of these procedures can range from a single appointment to several months.

  5. Follow-Up and Maintenance: After the initial treatment, regular follow-up appointments may be necessary to monitor the results and make any necessary adjustments. Additionally, proper oral hygiene practices and routine dental check-ups are essential for maintaining the results of the smile design over time.


The time required for a smile design can range from a few weeks to several months, depending on the specific circumstances of each case. To achieve the best possible outcome, patients should communicate openly with their dentist, follow their recommendations, and be patient throughout the process.
