Aesthetic Dental Transformations

DFW cosmetic dentistsAre you disappointed in the teeth that you were born with? Thanks to modern dental technology, there’s no need to settle for a subpar smile. DFW cosmetic dentists can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Whether your teeth are crooked, damaged or discolored, cosmetic dentists have a number of treatment tools in the proverbial toolbox that can help to enhance your smile. One particularly versatile device is the dental veneer. This thin, tooth-shaped porcelain shell can conceal any number of flaws, including chips cracks and stains. They can even be used to create an illusion of alignment in crooked or crowded teeth.

Another restoration technique that cosmetic dentists use to improve a tooth’s appearance is the dental crown. Crowns also may be made of porcelain, which is sometimes fused to metal for additional strength. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are used in cases where the tooth is too extensively damaged to be helped by a veneer alone. Crowns can also help to stabilize a tooth with a large filling or one that has undergone root canal therapy.

Cosmetic dentists can also help to fill in gaps in the smile left behind by teeth that have been lost to decay or knocked loose by injury. Dental implants are particularly useful for this purpose. Implants not only replace the visible portion of the missing tooth, they also serve as a structural root for the tooth. Even though you can’t see the tooth’s root, it still plays an important role in the smile’s appearance.

Teeth whitening also creates an attention-grabbing smile. In-office treatments can whiten your teeth up to 10 shades in as little as an hour. Some patients opt for prescription-strength whitening gels used in take-home trays worn overnight. Teeth whitening can be used alone or as the last embellishment in a comprehensive smile makeover.
