Initial Consultation

Your dentist will ask you about your smile goals and what you'd like to achieve to ensure your expectations can be met.

As a patient, there are many options available to you - examples include bonding, veneers, or something as simple as whitening or repairing a chip, or even orthodontics like Invisalign

The cosmetic dentist will walk you through the options must relevant to your smile goals.

Digital Smile Design
Digital Smile Design

Digital Smile Design

Naturally, patients can be apprehensive about the outcome of their treatments - as this is your smile! 

Our digital smile design service will allow you to try a temporary version of your new smile in your mouth BEFORE you go ahead with treatment, so you will know what the result will look like before you commit to treatment.

Shannon Dolan - our dental nurse lead, walks you through what is involved in the digital smile design treatment in the video in this section.



After the inital consultation where we will discuss your goals, we will give you the option of getting the smile design treatment.

Once this has been decided on, we will move into the procedure.

Some procedures, like composite bonding, do not require any preparation of the teeth. Other treatments, like crowns, will require some adjustment to the existing tooth structure.

If the process requires the teeth to be adjusted, the first appointment will be to prepare the teeth. We will place a temporary version of your teeth in your mouth that you will wear until your next appointment.

The temporary teeth will protect the prepared tooth structure underneath and give you some functionality with your teeth.

On the next appointment, we will fix the permanent crown or veneer your teeth.

Expected Outcome

People come in with a range of problems they perceive are keeping them from having the perfect smile.

Common issues are teeth with gaps, chipped or broken teeth, discoloured or stained teeth, gummy smile, and teeth that are crowded or crooked. We can solve or improve upon all of these issues with cosmetic dentistry. 

Patients are often quite taken aback by the look of their new smile. Before making any adjustments, we want to give the patient some time to acclimatize and get positive feedback from family and friends before making the final modifications to the teeth.

Many patients come into us very self-conscious about their smile.

When we see them for a review, they have learned to smile again and have regained their confidence to smile!

After Care

After any cosmetic procedure, there is more to look after in your mouth. Your teeth could require more maintenance than before.

We recommend an electric toothbrush, and flossing is more important than ever. You should attend your regular hygiene appointments. We also recommend that you check in with your cosmetic dentist every year. 



Our very own Dr. Niall Vallely provides answers to some of the most common questions we hear about cosmetic treatments.

What Our Patients Say

When I speak, I (now) show my teeth, and when I laugh, I laugh with my mouth open - and then same when I smile.

I came back the same evening I had the 12 teeth removed and I had a mockup of my new teeth. Fully screwed in. I felt no pain. All in the same day! That to me, was the biggest thing of all!

Commonly Asked Questions

What does cosmetic dentistry include?

Cosmetic dentistry is the aspect of dentistry that deals with the aesthetics or the appearance of your teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry can include anything from whitening to crowns and veneers to orthodontic treatments like Invisalign.

A cosmetic dentist can adjust the size, shape, colour, shade, alignment and overall look of your teeth. 

What is the difference between a cosmetic dentist and a regular dentist?

All dentistry has a cosmetic component to it. Even when doing fillings, we want them to look natural. Every cosmetic dentist is also a general dentist.

They have a particular interest in and have developed skills for improving the aesthetics of the teeth. 

Is cosmetic dentistry painful?

We make all of the treatments as gentle as possible. Many treatments require no drilling and no injections.

For more invasive treatments, we can numb the patient and manage any discomfort.

What is the average cost of cosmetic dentistry?

There is a wide range of cosmetic procedures and a wide range of costs.

Pricing starts at €175 (for edge bonding) to a full smile makeover that can range from between €1,000 to €10,000.

It really depends on your particular situation. The good news is that we offer free consultations where you can get all these questions answered and more.

Can really bad teeth be fixed?

Absolutely. These are the cases that are most rewarding because they provide the most dramatic results.

Often we can make the most improvements on teeth a patient thinks look bad or are unsalvagable.

What is the best cosmetic dental procedure?

There is no one best cosmetic treatment. It varies from patient to patient.

Depending on your situation, one of the cosmetic dentists at 3Dental will recommend the best treatment to achieve the results you want. 

When would a patient be advised to seek treatment from a cosmetic dentist as opposed to a general dentist?

We advise patients to seek treatment from a cosmetic dentist when their primary concern is improving the appearance of their smile.

Cosmetic dentists specialise in aesthetic treatments such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and dental bonding and more.

They have advanced training and expertise in enhancing the visual aspects of your smile.

On the other hand, a general dentist is the most appropriate choice for routine dental care and maintenance.

General dentists focus on preventive treatments, oral health maintenance, and addressing common dental issues such as tooth decay and regular check-ups. 

In cases where a patient requires comprehensive dental care that encompasses both functional and aesthetic aspects, a general dentist may collaborate with a cosmetic dentist.

'I have one front tooth longer than the other.' Can you help?

Yes, we can help :)

Firstly, we would thoroughly examine your dental and facial structure to determine the underlying cause of the asymmetry.

This could involve analysing your dental occlusion, bite alignment, and facial proportions.

Depending on the severity and underlying factors, potential treatments may include:

We would then schedule regular follow-up visits to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.
