Are you dissatisfied with the looks of your smile? If it is already as healthy as it can be, or if you need to restore it to good function and good looks, it is time to talk about cosmetic dentistry. At Rivercrest Family Dental in New Braunfels, TX we gladly provide patients with a large array of cosmetic dentistry services, including:
In the world of restorative and cosmetic dentistry there are many excellent solutions. The patient with a chipped tooth may discover several options open to them. Among the simplest and most effective is bonding. Dental bonding is simply the use of a tooth-colored resin that is bonded to the natural tooth in order to improve its appearance.
Yet, the bonding process can also be used to fill cavities, repair cracked teeth, hide deeply stained teeth, close wide gaps between teeth, improve the length or shape of teeth and protect an exposed area of the tooth.
Don’t think of bonding as purely cosmetic dentistry because it also enhances the strength of a compromised tooth or protects the tooth from decay or harm. It is a fast and easy treatment, and one we are glad to discuss.
When a tooth has had mild to moderate decay or has been damaged, but not enough to require a dental crown, inlays/onlays are the best solution. In other words, a patient who has a lot of damage to a tooth, or extensive decay in the tooth, but this cannot be fixed with a standard filling is likely to receive inlays/onlays.
They allow our dentist to preserve a lot of the original tooth structure and they offer a very long-lasting and durable solution. Most last decades or more, and even improve the overall strength of the tooth while also improving the looks of teeth originally filled with inferior metal or amalgam fillings.
Inlays are as they sound, a structure that is laid into the tooth, replacing one or more of the cusps and filling some of the natural valleys in the tooth. Onlays replace the entire top of the tooth, including the cusps, but not the entire crown.
If you have misaligned, damaged or deeply stained teeth, porcelain veneers can be a fast and long-lasting solution. Durable and capable of providing some patients with nearly instant makeovers, they can be done in just two office visits. You might be able to skip the braces and crowns when you opt to have our team create porcelain veneers to address your cosmetic dental issues.
Does anything say “healthy teeth” more than a gleaming white smile? Unfortunately, many people with perfectly healthy teeth and gums live with stained or discolored teeth. This is why we provide both in-office and take home teeth whitening options. We also offer free take home whitening kits to all patients who stay on track with regular, twice annual cleanings and dental exams. Give yourself the whitest and healthiest smile possible with simple and effective teeth whitening treatments.
Enjoy a fully customized cosmetic enhancement of your smile with our Smile Makeover services. When you require two or more treatments to improve the esthetics of your smile, we are happy to help. We offer an array of cosmetic services, but also the key restorative services that guarantee your smile is not just attractive but healthy and function. Whether you need simple treatments like whitening, veneers or some bonding, or you need an implant, some alignment and more, we are here to help.
No one likes to wear braces, but they do give you an improved bite and a more attractive smile. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with painful wires and brackets thanks to the Clear Correct system we have available. Using nearly invisible aligners that slide discreetly over your teeth, and come out for eating and oral hygiene, this system can give you that movie-star straight grin in as little as one year. Let us help you determine if you are a good candidate for this remarkably innovative approach to straightening the teeth.
