Cosmetic dentistry procedures available to Austin, TX area patients
Patients who are ready to improve the appearance of their smile are encouraged to speak to a dental professional about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. This field of dentistry focuses on the enhancement of the smile from an aesthetic standpoint. Patients may have a healthy smile but may be unhappy with the way it looks. At Grand Oaks Dentistry in Austin, TX, patients can visit our practice to learn about the wide range of aesthetic options available to them under one roof!
At Grand Oaks Dentistry, patients can enjoy the following treatments:
Crowns, or “caps,” are commonly used to cover natural teeth to provide an extra layer of protection and strength. By using materials such as porcelain, these restorations are often seamlessly integrated into the smile and do not stand out as a dental restoration.
While over-the-counter whitening products may be able to whiten the teeth, professional-grade teeth whitening solutions provide amazing results in a shorter period of time. Investing in teeth whitening is a wonderful way to improve the smile for many months at a time.
Replacing missing teeth can be achieved by placing a dental bridge into the dental arch. Dental bridges are made of ceramic and are fabricated to match the existing teeth.
Covering imperfections may be the easiest way to address them. With porcelain veneers, the dentist can bond a facing over the front of a tooth to change its overall appearance and provide a fast, easy way to address broken, stained, or misaligned teeth in a pinch.
Dental bonding with composite resin is another way to achieve similar results as porcelain veneers, though on more of a budget. This material is susceptible to staining so may need to be replaced more often than veneers.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are a wonderful middle-of-the-road solution for patients who have cavities that are too large for fillings but too small to have a dental crown fabricated.
