How to Straighten Your Smile Without Wearing Braces

girl smilingCrooked teeth are one of the complaints I receive most often. Slightly rotated or widely spaced teeth can make a smile appear juvenile or unprofessional, and your self-confidence can suffer because of it. Many times, patients with crooked teeth have worn braces in the past, but their teeth have shifted, and now they’re dissatisfied with the results. I understand their hesitation to wear braces again – braces of any kind require a significant time commitment, not to mention the embarrassment of looking like a teenager. As a cosmetic dentist in the Dallas/Plano area, I offer many solutions to straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal braces. Most of these treatments can be performed in just one or two visits, and the results are extremely esthetic and long-lasting.

Cosmetic Bonding for Perfect Dallas Smiles

pretty-girlNot everyone needs veneers, though they are beautiful and vibrant. In some cases, I recommend cosmetic bonding. If you have a diastema (space between your front teeth), widely spaced front teeth, permanently stained enamel, or misshapen teeth, cosmetic bonding may pose a viable and inexpensive solution.

I use quality composite resin tinted to blend with a patient’s tooth enamel to correct flaws and improve overall appearance. This durable material is stain resistant, so I may also recommend professional teeth bleaching prior to bonding. By making your teeth bright and beautiful before bonding, we ensure the best esthetic outcome. [Read more...]

Cosmetic Dentistry in Dallas: White Porcelain Crowns

porcelian crown dallas dentistDo you have dark lines at the base of your crowns? Do your front crowns look bulky and fake? I’d like to give you a reason to smile with confidence again. White porcelain crowns will deliver the natural-looking, gorgeous smile that you deserve.

Dental crowns restore function, shape, and strength to damaged teeth. In the past, dental materials limited our ability to make strong, white crowns that looked natural. Most crowns were made of metal or porcelain fused to metal. Even today, because of the intense crushing pressure they must endure, for back teeth metal crowns are recommended. As we move forward in the mouth to areas that incur less pressure, porcelain fused to metal works well. It offers durability without compromising an all-white smile. On front teeth, however, porcelain fused to metal (PFM) is not the best cosmetic option.

PFM crowns tend to look black at the gum line; this is the metal showing through. On teeth that show in your smile, this black line is obtrusive and obvious. Also, because front teeth are thin, PFM crowns may add too much bulk, creating a fake appearance for restored front teeth. Some patients opt for veneers, a fabulous choice when appropriate, while others prefer all-porcelain crowns. [Read more...]
