Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Smile Center Silicon Valley

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry involves many types of treatments that improve the appearance of one or more of your teeth. A treatment can be something as simple as brightening your smile with a professional teeth whitening solution. Or it can be more complex, like a dental implant if you’re missing a tooth. Cosmetic dentistry may also include:

  • Dental veneers
  • Inlays or onlays
  • Composite bonding


Because your cosmetic dentistry plan is tailored to suit your needs and desired outcome, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all plan.

Will I Need More Than One Cosmetic Dentistry Appointment?

Typically, yes. Your initial appointment generally involves reviewing your concerns and getting all of your questions answered. Because the leading practitioners at Smile Center Silicon Valley offer several cosmetic dentistry treatments and have options for every budget, they review all of your possible solutions.

If you’re due for an exam and cleaning, you can get all of your cosmetic dentistry questions answered during that time, too. Some treatments, including teeth whitening and composite bonding, can be completed in a single visit. The more complex options, such as veneers, implants, inlays, or onlays, generally take two to three sessions to complete, after your initial consultation.  

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Painful?

Some cosmetic dentistry treatments are a little uncomfortable, but you shouldn’t be in pain. For instance, if your plan involves getting a dental implant, you’re going to need an oral surgery procedure. But because the team at Smile Center Silicon Valley offers plenty of sedation dentistry options — including nitrous oxide or oral sedation — you’re going to be able to relax fully during your surgery.

Some cosmetic dentistry procedures aren’t particularly painful on their own, but you might have to lie back for extended periods. Getting dental veneers placed is one such procedure that takes time.

Lying back in the dental chair can become uncomfortable for some, especially if you have back problems or another orthopedic issue. In these cases, let your dedicated cosmetic dentist know ahead of time, so they can help you figure out which sedation options might work best for you.
