If you ever hesitate to smile due to imperfections like misshapen teeth, misalignment, or even teeth stains, then you should consider an appointment for cosmetic dentistry. Our team can offer multiple treatment options to address your imperfections and make your smile shine! In today’s blog, your Richardson, TX, family dentist talks about our cosmetic treatment options!

Addressing Teeth Stains with Our Teeth Whitening Options

If you have stains on your teeth, don’t waste your time on store-bought strips and toothpastes that only offer minor results. Instead, talk to our team about our in-office or at-home teeth whitening treatments. With our in-office system, we will apply a powerful bleaching gel to your teeth and activate it with a light, which breaks up and removes stains in as little as one to two hours. You leave after one visit with a noticeably brighter smile and long-lasting results.

Our at-home option can tackle more severe stains, and involves creating a custom set of plastic trays that you take home, along with plastic syringes of a powerful bleaching gel. You add gel to the trays and wear them for a set amount of time each day over the course of one week to ten days. The trays ensure even results and prevent the gel from being diluted. For many, teeth could be up to eight shades brighter, with a lower risk of tooth sensitivity when compared to over-the-counter whitening options.

The Benefits of Bonding and Contouring

What if you have stains too severe for whitening, or issues with the shape of your teeth? With dental bonding, we use the same composite resin employed in our tooth-colored fillings to mask imperfections, such as minor damage, worn down structure, permanent stains, or even gaps between the teeth. With contouring, we sand and buff the outer structure to correct the appearance of minor chips or overly large teeth. We could improve imperfections in the surfaces of the teeth and with pointed teeth. Both can be done in one visit!

Custom Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer a smile makeover. These are thin and custom restorations that cover the teeth to instantly reshape them and mask imperfections, including stains, the appearance of minor misalignment, unsightly gaps, or structures that are damaged or malformed. The placement process only takes two visits!

Invisalign® Aligners

If you have poor alignment, then we could offer Invisalign® to correct the misalignment using a series of clear and custom plastic aligners. These are easy to use and clean, and offer results in as little as one year for some patients!
