How long does cosmetic dentistry in Northern Ireland take?

This is a hard question to answer when we are talking about cosmetic dentistry in general but that’s only because there are so many different procedures we could talk to you about. Once you decide which treatment or treatments you want, we can narrow down a timeframe for you based on your cosmetic dentistry goals and the conditions in your mouth.

As a rough guide, you can expect something close to the following timeframe for these treatments:

  • Teeth whitening – depending on whether you choose at-home or in-clinic whitening, your procedure could take either an hour or a couple of weeks. When you take equipment home with you, you also need to allow for the time it takes to custom-make your teeth whitening trays;
  • Veneers – initial consultation and fitting should take no more than an hour each. However, there needs to be a few weeks gap in between the two so that your veneers can be made;
  • Cosmetic orthodontics – this is one of the longer treatment options. This is because we need to move your teeth gently using one of our braces options. Some minor treatments take just a few months. More complex work that will revolutionise your smile could take a year or even two, in some cases.
