Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a variety of treatments and services designed to improve the look, feel, and function of your smile. At Lone Star Dental Care, from minor teeth whitening to major procedures, including full mouth reconstruction, cosmetic dentistry enables our doctors to address a wide range of common cosmetic dental concerns.
Cosmetic Gum Surgery
Cosmetic gum surgery includes procedures which can reshape the gum line, such as crown lengthening or gum grafting. A gummy smile can make teeth appear shorter; cosmetic gum surgery corrects the appearance of a gummy smile, allowing the teeth look more proportional in size.
Dental implants are often considered the best treatment option for replacing missing or broken teeth. They provide several benefits over alternative treatments, such as bridges and partials. They are a permanent, natural-looking option which can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. An implant crown is attached to the implant post. Implants are durable and long-lasting and may require only occasional adjustments.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the root of your missing tooth. This post is surgically implanted into your jawbone under the gum tissue. The jaw bone grows around this post, securing it in place so it can function as the root of a healthy tooth. This implant post acts as the foundation for your implant or denture. The denture or partial denture snaps onto the implant post via an abutment. The denture or partial denture can be removed for easy cleaning and maintenance.
Pinhole Surgical Technique
The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. The technique does not utilize a scalpel or sutures. Instead, it uses special tools to loosen the gum tissue and reposition it over the receded part of the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of durable porcelain which cover the front of the tooth structure. They are custom-made from a digital scan of your teeth and gums. They are then affixed to the front of your teeth using special dental bonding agent .
Teeth whitening is an innovative dental procedure designed to whiten and brighten stained or discolored teeth. A tooth is white when it is completely covered with enamel. The tooth's natural color comes from dentin underneath the enamel. Teeth whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental treatments because it can significantly improve the appearance of a person's smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are dental restorations which fill small cavities and repair minor defects in the tooth structure. This type of filling is made from a durable composite resin material which blends in with your tooth’s natural hue.
Tooth-colored fillings are strong and durable and can last many years if you maintain good oral hygiene habits.
