Cosmetic Dentistry

Our smiles matter more than we think. You may think that cosmetic dentistry is a vain endeavor or that it doesn’t have any real value, but that’s completely false. Sure, cosmetic dentistry procedures may not be medically necessary, but they are still important for the overall quality of your life and mental health. Your smile has the power to make or break first impressions, which are crucial for social and professional relationships. People who smile more are far more likely to advance in their careers and have more vibrant social lives. This isn’t just because you’re smiling but also because there’s a psychological link between your smile and your confidence. People who smile more and more freely are generally more confident.

Cosmetic Dental Services in Katy, Tx

  • Onlays

    When you get composite fillings, the dentist has to remove a large part of your tooth to accommodate the filling. As such, if the damage is too big, fillings aren’t a suitable option. In that case, the dentist gets porcelain onlays made and bonds them to your teeth to cover up the fracture and support your tooth. This looks completely natural and functional and it can also help repair teeth if the damage has spread to the cusps or tips.

  • Teeth Whitening

    Professional in office teeth whitening is the most popular method of brightening your smile. Over the years, your teeth get discolored or stained because of various factors. Years of smoking or drinking beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea can leave your teeth yellowed. Professional teeth whitening is a procedure in which the dentist applies a whitening gel to your teeth and uses a special light to bleach your teeth. However, this procedure isn’t suitable if you have intrinsic stains or if your enamel has worn off.

  • Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored paper-thin porcelain materials that are attached over the surface of your existing teeth. As such, they completely cover up and hide your existing teeth and externally project a perfect set of teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great alternative to teeth whitening if you’re suffering from intrinsic stains on your teeth, in which case professional teeth whitening won’t be entirely effective. The only issue is that the dentist has to first remove some of the surface enamel from your teeth to accommodate porcelain veneers.

  • Porcelain Crowns

    Do you have broken or damaged teeth? If so, dental porcelain crowns are the best cosmetic dentistry procedure for you. Porcelain crowns are caps attached over your existing teeth — they look just like actual teeth and they cover up your existing teeth to completely replace them. They look and function like actual teeth, are extremely durable, more stain-resistant than actual teeth, and porcelain has the same texture as enamel. As such, porcelain crowns are indistinguishable from actual teeth, making them one of the best cosmetic dentistry procedures to replace teeth.

  • Gum Contouring

    Gum contouring is a procedure in which the dentist uses a scalpel or laser to contour or carve out your gum tissues. This is done if you have diseased gum tissues or excessive gum tissues that affect your smile. It helps you smile more freely and proportions out the gums and teeth revealed when you smile. This procedure may also be done after you’ve suffered from gum disease in order to restore the aesthetic quality of the remaining gum tissues.

  • Composite Fillings

    You may have cavities or fractures in your teeth for various reasons. When this happens, you’ll have gaps in your teeth that become breeding grounds for bacteria, which leads to bacterial infection and also looks really bad. The dentist can fill up the cavities and fractures with tooth-colored composite resin. The dentist applies the liquid resin in the cavities in layers and then hardens it with a special light. This secures your teeth and prevents the cavity from spreading while also looking completely natural.

Best Cosmetic Dentist in Katy, Texas

If you feel the need to hide your smile, you’re also likely to be self-conscious in general, which can affect your social and professional life. In some cases, if your smile causes a lot of social anxiety, it may also affect your mental health. Advanced cosmetic and general dentistry procedures improve your smile and also your self-confidence levels. Furthermore, having straight and bright teeth also makes you feel better about your teeth, which means you’re more likely to take better care of them — just as you’re likely to care more for your suits than your sweatpants. This also results in better oral health in general.
