At Clear Lake Dental Care and Implant Center, we provide a wide range of dental services for new and current patients at our Webster, TX practice. Many of our patients have already achieved healthy smiles, but may have imperfections that make them feel self-conscious about their appearance. With cosmetic dentistry, patients can address common problems within the smile while ensuring they stay within their budget. Aesthetic dentistry has never been as affordable as it is now and continues to be a popular field of dentistry for adult patients.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Drs. Das, Pham, and Rivera of Clear Lake Dental Care and Implant Center describe cosmetic dentistry as a portion of dental work that focuses primarily on the appearance of the smile. These procedures are often in high demand when patients what to address common imperfections that can appear within the smile, including:
- Stained teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Teeth with cavities
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Missing teeth
Some of the procedures available may include:
- Porcelain veneers – imperfections near the front of the smile on the anterior teeth can often be disguised using porcelain veneers. These are thin shells of ceramic that cover the tooth and provide a more desirable appearance.
- Dental fillings – fillings used in our practice are tooth-colored, ensuring areas of decay are practically indistinguishable from healthy teeth when seen by others.
- Dental bonding – composite resin bonding can be used in many ways within cosmetic dentistry. It is used to fill cavities and cover teeth, while also reshaping a tooth that may have been chipped or cracked. Dental bonding can last a few years with proper care, though is often replaced due to staining and discoloration with time.
- Professional teeth whitening – a brighter smile is often one of the top requests from patients who visit our practice, and we encourage patients to consider the advantages of undergoing professional teeth whitening with our dental staff.
