Four Most Common Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

If you hide your smile or are disappointed with your teeth, because of gaps, crooked or badly stained teeth, cosmetic dentistry in Spring, TX, provides a wide range of options which can transform your smile. As cosmetic dentists, we specialize in beautifying procedures for your teeth and/or gums. Some of the most common procedures we perform include, teeth whitening, dental implants, veneers and/or braces.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures of cosmetic dentistry in Spring, TX. Teeth whitening, also known as bleaching, can remove stains and discolorations to whiten and brighten your smile. There are a variety of teeth whitening procedures available, some of which can whiten your teeth up to 20 shades whiter. If you prefer to do the treatments at home, we can provide you with a teeth whitening kit that is safer and more effective than the whitening kits available over-the-counter. For the full effect of teeth whitening, you may need to have two or more treatments.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth can be embarrassing as well as interfere with your eating habits and ability to talk correctly. Dental implants are a dental procedure used to replace missing teeth. They are the most natural looking and feeling types of prosthetic teeth and unlike dentures, they are permanently installed. Dental implants consist of a titanium screw which is installed into your jawbone and a porcelain crown is fitted over the screw to provide a natural looking tooth. Dental implants provide a range of benefits, including the ability to eat healthy, talk without slurring words and they vastly improve your smile, confidence and self-esteem.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are also a popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry in Spring, TX. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells which are custom made to fit over the front of your teeth. Although porcelain is the primary material used to make veneers, other composite materials may be used. This type of cosmetic dental procedure is ideal if you have dental problems, such as chipped teeth or teeth which are severely stained and discolored.

Braces

Braces are commonly used to align or correct teeth which have large gaps and/or an overbite. There are a variety of braces designs available, including clear and/or metal braces. The type of braces used is dependent on a number of factors, such as your budget, your age, the specific problem you are having and our recommendations. Clear braces are typically worn by adults, while metal braces are often used by children and teenagers. Both types of braces are routinely adjusted to gradually repair the problem.

The costs for cosmetic dentistry in Spring, TX, varies depending on the type of procedures you need to repair your teeth or gums. It is important to arrange a consultation to determine which procedures will be the best suited for your specific problem. Some dental procedures may not be covered by insurance; however, we do offer payment options for certain procedures.
