What’s Possible with Cosmetic Dentistry
Customized Porcelain Veneers
Struggling with a front tooth that has an odd shape, chip or maybe even deep discoloration? That’s no problem, we can create a thin, customized veneers that looks natural and attach right to the front of your tooth. Porcelain, or composite resin, veneers are lightweight restorations that are made to match the color of your other teeth. They are made to fit over the front surface of a tooth so that it hides any cosmetic problems, but are strong enough so that you can enjoy (most) of your favorite foods. With the right care, a dental veneer can last for many years.
Plastic Teeth Aligners
If you weren’t able to wear braces as a teenage and you don’t want to have them as an adult, clear plastic aligners may be right for you. Invisalign aligners are designed to repair mild to moderate malocclusions in just six months to two years. These retainers are almost undetectable by others and can be incredibly effective in straightening teeth. The process is simple and your first set of retainers can be ready in no time.
X-rays and dental molds are taken of your teeth to determine if aligners can repair your dental misalignments. Typical treatment with Invisalign aligners requires having 20 to 30 sets of aligners. You are required to wear the aligners for most of the day and night, but you will usually switch to a different set of Invisalign aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners is made in a slightly different way so that the items will apply pressure against your teeth to create the perfect smile.
If you have yellowing teeth or tobacco or food stains, then our San Antonio cosmetic dentists recommend professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is also necessary before you have other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as the attachment of a veneer or receiving a new dental crown. With teeth whitening, we can create restorations that match the color of your cleaner and brighter teeth so that your smile looks gorgeous.
