3 Cosmetic Dental Procedures to Transform Your Smile

cosmetic dentistry DallasHave you been wondering how cosmetic dentistry could improve your smile? If so, you’re not alone. Millions of people receive cosmetic dental treatments every year. Cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile and your self-confidence. Three popular procedures our dentist offers are dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and professional teeth whitening.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an affordable treatment that can conceal common dental flaws like chips, gaps, discoloration, and minor cracks. Bonding treatments utilize a tooth-colored resin to improve the aesthetics of a tooth.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are permanent cosmetic enhancements that can produce a powerful transformation. These ultra-thin, wafer-like enhancements are custom made to fit over the front-facing sides of teeth.

Porcelain veneers conceal a number of dental imperfections including chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. When veneers are placed over the most noticeable teeth in a smile, they make teeth appear white, straight, and perfectly proportionate.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in the United States. In fact, the problem of stained and discolored teeth affects almost everyone. Teeth are porous so exposure to stain-causing compounds like tobacco, wine, and coffee will ultimately lead to developing permanent discoloration.

Fortunately, professional teeth whitening tackles tough dental stains without causing harm to teeth. Our dentist offers two types of whitening treatments: Opalescence Boost and Kor.

Opalescence Boost is an in-office treatment that takes about 40 minutes to complete. Utilizing a hydrogen peroxide-based formula, Opalescence Boost can lighten teeth up to ten shades whiter. The whitening gel is activated just before it is placed on the surface of teeth. Opalescence does not cause permanent sensitivity and it contains minerals that strengthen tooth enamel.

Kor whitening is an at-home treatment. This whitening system comes with prescription grade lightening solutions and trays that prevent saliva from breaking down the whitening solution. Kor is effective at removing deep, stubborn stains.
