Harris County Cosmetic Dentist
Most patients remember the first time they spilled something on their new floors, or the first door ding in their new car, but after a while, these tiny stains and chips add up leaving floors, cars, and even teeth looking less than their best. If you’re one of the countless Hamilton Family Dentistry patients who would like to hit the reset button on their smiles and go back to a time before all the staining, chipping, and other daily wear and tear, it’s time to call our office to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation.
We may not be able to hit the reset button to restore your flawless smile, but we do have the next best thing – porcelain veneers. Veneers are crafted from high quality porcelain that is shaped to fit over the front facing parts of teeth effectively correcting and concealing any number of flaws with just one fast, painless procedure. Typically, we complete the porcelain veneer process over the course of two appointments at our office. During the initial appointment, we prepare teeth by removing a small amount of surface enamel, capture dental impressions, and place a temporary. Once the final product is received from the lab, patients return to exchange their temporary for a custom porcelain veneer.
Blurring the line between cosmetic and restorative treatment, metal-free crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges make it possible for our team to fully restore the function of patients’ smiles without compromising the appearance. Typically crafted from high quality ceramic precisely shaded to match natural dental structures, metal free restorations reconstruct lost dental tissue following decay, trauma, or tooth loss, and they blend seamlessly into the natural smile line. Like traditional dental crowns and other restorations, metal-free restorations are placed in two visits – one for preparation and design and one to place the custom crown.
Using the same high quality composite resin material that is used for tooth-colored fillings, direct bonding allows our team to conceal and correct numerous chips, cracks, and gaps in teeth all in just one, painless appointment. In most cases, bonding does not require our team to remove any of a patients’ natural dental structure, so if patients decided they aren’t happy with the results, we can typically reverse the treatment. For patients with smaller cosmetic flaws and those whose irregularities only effect the parts of teeth that bear less force when chewing (the front surfaces), direct bonding is a fast, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers.
At-Home Whitening Kits
You’ve likely seen advertisements for teeth whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, and gels available in your local pharmacy. These ads promise dramatic results, but they are typically unable to deliver. Professional at-home teeth whitening kits from our team allow patients to, safely, predictably, and comfortably, brighten their smiles up to ten shades from the comfort of home. These whitening products are completely personalized to achieve patients’ whitening goals. The amount of whitening agent, wear times, and application trays are customized to meet each patients’ unique needs.
