Millennials look for 'dental bling'

Millennials are on the hunt for perfect teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry is soaring across the United States, raking in an estimated $16 billion in 2015. Dentists say around 60 percent of their patients are millennials who come in for everything from Invisalign to "dental bling."

The large demand within the industry comes as technology changes the way dentists work. Dentists report spending more time on computers than in the mouths of patients with the arrival of digital design systems.
