How do you feel about the appearance of your smile? If you feel self-conscious about the beauty of your teeth, then you may feel the need to hide your smile from the world. Instead of hiding from the world, why not seek care designed to improve the aesthetics of your smile? In today’s blog, your Conroe, TX, dentist talks about how we transform smiles with cosmetic dentistry, sometimes in as little as one visit!
Your Initial Consultation
Do you feel embarrassed regarding the appearance of your smile? If you have teeth stains, misshapen or damaged teeth, gaps between your teeth, or other common aesthetic concerns, then let us know. Schedule a consultation so we can talk to you about your smile, and also conduct a detailed examination. Our team wants to assess the causes and extent of your aesthetic issues, so we can create a personalized treatment plan, one that offers one or more treatments to improve overall smile beauty, sometimes in a single sitting. You should feel great about your smile, and we want to make sure you do with cosmetic dentistry.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Do you want to finally remove those unsightly teeth stains? Then talk to us about professional teeth whitening! This cosmetic treatment involves removing stains from home, and offers more dramatic and longer lasting results than strips or toothpaste. Essentially, you will stop by the office long enough for us to take impressions of your smile and create a set of plastic trays, which will fit comfortably. We send these home with you, along with a powerful bleaching gel. You will use the plastic syringes to fill the trays with gel, and then wear them for the amount of time we prescribed, usually between 30 and 45 minutes a day. This could brighten your teeth by multiple shades, and help you enjoy stunning results after only one to two weeks. The trays and any remaining gel can be used for touch-ups down the road as needed.
Our team could also offer a smile makeover with our cosmetic restorations. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that we attach to the front facing sides of each tooth. They will instantly cover the front and sides, transforming the color and shape of your teeth. Each one is custom-made, and we remove a thin layer of enamel to make room for them. The porcelain material reflects the translucent nature of tooth enamel, and is shaded to match the rest of your smile seamlessly. Once in place, they can close gaps between teeth, correct the appearance of misalignment, mask permanent teeth stains, and even reshape damaged or malformed teeth.
With dental bonding, our team will use the same composite resin employed in our filling procedure to address cosmetic concerns. The procedure only takes one visit, as we remove decay, clean the tooth, and apply the dashed material to the tooth. We then sculpt the tooth as this composite resin cures beneath a light. We color match the material to ensure it blends with your tooth, and can repair minor damage, close gaps between the teeth, address malformed teeth, and add length to worn down teeth. We also mask teeth stains!
In the same visit, we have another single-sitting cosmetic treatment to correct aesthetic concerns. With cosmetic dental contouring, our team will shade the teeth by sanding and buffing the outer structure. We can then remove pits, grooves, and rough areas in the outer surface, and correct sharp, pointed or jagged portions of tooth structure. We can correct the appearance of minor chips, and also address misshapen or very large teeth. Our team could also help improve bite balance and chewing function too.
What if you have tooth decay or severe damage that requires more than cosmetic dentistry? Well, even if you need restorative dental care, our team can provide this with lifelike restorations. Our fillings and crowns can be shaded to look natural and match your smile, while also protecting it against cavities and other major oral health complications. If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry, or if you would like to schedule a visit with our team, then contact our team today to learn more.
