Find out which cosmetic treatment could give you your dream smile.
Who doesn’t want the perfect smile? Even if you weren’t born with it this doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve it. Your Cedar Park, TX cosmetic dentist Dr. Jason Dyson offers a variety of different dental treatments to improve both the look and the function of your smile:
Looking to hide very small stains or cracks that may not be as visible to others at first glance but bug you? Then you may not need to go through one time-consuming procedure after another for such small issues. Those with minor chips, stains and small gaps between teeth may be able to hide these problems with dental bonding, a special tooth-colored resin that is molded over problem areas to reshape the tooth and provide a whiter, more attractive smile.
Bonding is a great cosmetic option for those with aesthetic issues that do not affect the overall function of your smile. This is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic procedures you can get to improve your smile.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
For those missing one or more teeth you may want to talk to your restorative dentist in Cedar Park about getting dental bridges. This dental restoration, which contains a false tooth in the middle and a dental crown on each side, uses healthy neighboring teeth to support it. In as little as two visits you may be able to replace one or more teeth with dental bridges.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that can also be placed over the crown of a tooth that has significant discolorations, cracks and other issues that may affect its overall function.
Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are made to look just like real teeth and are applied to the front of your smile using a special cement. Veneers are great for our Cedar Park dental patients who are looking to hide small chips, cracks, discolorations, misshapen or uneven teeth, overlapping or gaps between teeth. In order to make room for your veneers, we will need to remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel first. While this procedure is painless and almost completely non-invasive it cannot be reversed.
For patients looking for a long-term solution to replace missing teeth, dental implants are a valuable option. The metal implant is surgically inserted into a drilled hole in the jawbone where it will heal and fuse with the bone and tissue over several months. After everything has healed, we will unveil the top of the implant and attach an abutment on top. This piece will serve to connect the dental crown to the implant.
