TWO OF HOUSTONS TOP DENTISTS!

After checking out thousands of dentists, H Texas Magazine has selected our dentists as one of the top cosmetic dentists in the Houston area!

Our range of Cosmetic Dentistry services include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Composite Fillings
  • Porcelain Crowns (Caps)
  • Porcelain Fixed Bridges
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Tooth Whitening

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-Colored fillings, i.e. Composite fillings, are used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks or fractures, closing gaps or worn down teeth.

The tooth-colored material can be closely matched to the color of the existing teeth, and is most commonly used on the most visible teeth. Although, composite fillings are not permanent and may need to be replaced in the future they are very durable, and will last many years giving you a beautiful smile.

The procedure can typically be done in one visit. While the tooth is numb the decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed. The area is then thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the new filling. After the filling is precisely placed and molded to the tooth by our dentist it is then polished and restored to its natural original shape and function.
Some minor sensitivity to hot and cold is normal at first but this feeling will go away shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.

You will be given care instructions at the end of your appointment.


Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

A porcelain crown or cap is a tooth-colored covering that encases the entire tooth to give it its natural shape and size. Crowns are used to strengthen the tooth structure when typical fillings cannot be used.

Porcelain crowns are made to match the exact shape, color and size of your teeth to give you that natural, long-lasting beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. The most common reasons for needed a crown is for fractured or broken teeth, cosmetic enhancement, decay, large fillings and root canals.

The procedure typically requires two appointments. First the dentist must make precise molds of the tooth to be used to create your custom crown. A temporary crown will be placed over the tooth for approximately two weeks until the new crown is fabricated. Your second visit will be to remove the temporary crown while tooth is numb and the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned and your new crown will be carefully set to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

You will be given care instructions at the end of your appointment.


Porcelain Fixed Bridges

A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace missing teeth, maintain facial shape, prevent drifting teeth, restore chewing and speaking ability, and give you a more permanent natural smile. There are several types of fixed bridges and together you and the dentist will discuss the best option for you.

Porcelain bridges are most commonly used because they resemble your natural teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns that are applied to two anchoring teeth. The crowns are attached to the artificial teeth that fill the gap created by missing teeth. Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits.

Porcelain bridges are extremely durable but may need replacement or adjustment due to normal wear. You will be given care instructions at the end of your appointment.


Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made moldings that cover the fronts of unattractive teeth. They are crafted from lifelike, high-tech materials to portray a bright, natural smile. If you are looking to improve your smile, custom-fitted veneers can provide the answer.

Our dentists come highly recommended and understand the art of veneers. Veneers are used to enhance the natural appearance of your smile with little to no discomfort. They can mask undesirable defects such as tetracycline stains, an injury or discolored fillings. Only a small amount of the tooth structure is removed during the procedure, often no anesthesia is needed. Porcelain veneers are durable, strong, stain resistant and often a less costly alternative procedure to having crowns. Veneers require two visits, due to the fabrication process.

They have strength, beauty, and durability but may need to be replaced or adjusted due to normal wear. You will be given care instructions at the end of your appointment.


Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is the #1 requested and performed cosmetic dental procedure. A variety of options are available today for patients to brighten their smiles, but dentist-supervised treatments remain the safest and most effective way to whiter teeth.

The following are two options for whitening your teeth...

At-home Dentist-Supervised Whitening

The patient wears a custom-fitted mouth tray containing a whitening gel for a few hours each day or night. The trays can be adjusted to lighten individual teeth. The average patient will wear mouth trays one to two weeks. More severe stains can often be improved with extended use of the home whitening system.

Proper Fitting Mouth Trays: Often, over-the-counter whitening trays do not the patient’s mouth properly. Improperly fitting trays may leak the whitening gel and can result gum irritation and a less effective treatment.

More Comfortable Solutions: With today’s new dental supervised system even patients with sensitive teeth can undergo whitening treatment.
