Cosmetic Dentistry Trends

3 September 2021

In today’s world of digital media, we all have higher expectations than ever before when it comes to our teeth. Super straight white teeth are currently the most popular social media trend. People’s desire to improve their appearances has been fuelled by the usage of editing applications and filters, which allow them to make their noses smaller, lips bigger, and teeth whiter with a few taps.

As a result, people have become so hooked on seeing this new and improved version of themselves that they attempt to duplicate it in real life. People and patients, on the other hand, are now attempting to guarantee that their new look is natural rather than artificial. And, because of recent advancements in cosmetic dentistry, minimally invasive procedures are becoming increasingly popular.

The Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures


Tooth alignment is at the top of the list, believe it or not. Patients are turning away from traditional braces in favour of more inconspicuous options such as lingual braces (braces that sit beneath the teeth) and Invisalign, which uses clear removable aligners.

Invisalign remains the gold standard for most orthodontists. Patients who are receiving this treatment must wear the invisible aligners for 22 hours per day, with the exception of eating and cleaning.

Invisalign employs iTero, a sophisticated piece of technology that scans the mouth and displays you the results of what your new teeth could look like in under a minute, eliminating the need for inaccurate and untidy moulds.

Patients may now makeover their smiles fast and easily without over-prepping their teeth because of advancements in veneer systems. There are a variety of reasons why veneer treatments have grown in popularity over time. Celebrities have taken to social media to flaunt their stunning set of veneers, pushing people to take action and obtain the smile of their dreams.

Because veneers correct a wide range of oral health issues such as tooth discolouration, crooked teeth, and alignment issues, they can be used to address a wide range of patient concerns in a single surgery. Orthodontic patients get their teeth cleaned in such a gentle yet comprehensive manner that future bonding and sealants can be applied with ease.

Teeth Whitening

Patients who are content with their smiles opt for more mild cosmetic dental operations such as teeth whitening to improve the colour. With the capacity to lighten teeth up to eight shades in only one consultation, the procedure is quick, affordable and one of the fastest ways to once again be happy with your smile.

Dental Crowns

Your teeth might get damaged over time. This can occur for a variety of reasons, including dental decay, trauma, or regular use. Furthermore, your teeth’s shape and size can deteriorate. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped ‘caps’ that fit over your natural tooth. Consider it a snug cap for your teeth. The crown improves the shape, size, strength, and look of the tooth. To put it simply, a dental crown is a cap that covers the visible section of your tooth and is cemented into place.

If a dental crown was a dental treatment you were interest in, you have five options to choose from:

  • Gold crowns
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Porcelain fused to metal crowns
  • Zirconia crowns
  • E-max crowns

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is another treatment that can help deliver a smile you’re happy with, in just one trip to the dentist. Composite bonding treatment (also referred to as tooth bonding or dental bonding) is a procedure that can be used to repair minor tooth damage or gaps.

Bonding is most commonly used to repair chips, fractures, and gaps between teeth, as well as to cover discoloration. A composite resin is used to restore the appearance of a tooth once it has been connected to it and sculpted. The resin is tinted to match your teeth, giving the impression that it is a natural component of the tooth.
