Aesthetic dentistry is often conflated with cosmetic dentistry but there is a slight difference. While cosmetic dentists prioritize improving the appearance of the teeth as their sole goal, an aesthetic dentist is interested in both the aesthetics and the functionality of your teeth.
We take a more comprehensive and holistic approach to treatments that can improve aesthetic imperfections but simultaneously restore damage or replace missing teeth. You can think of aesthetic dentistry as a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. We also want to do this in the least invasive manner possible.
Not only do we want to improve your smile, but we want to help you make it look natural and beautiful instead of artificial. We can alter the shape, size, shade, and alignment of your teeth all while treating damaged teeth to improve their strength and health. We are located closely to both Spring and Kohrville, TX.
By improving the appearance of your smile, you create a more youthful overall appearance which will melt away insecurities and make you feel more confident in your own skin. Studies show that patients who have invested in improving the appearance of their teeth tend to practice better oral hygiene and get frequent cleanings.
In the process of treating conditions like TMJ, a misaligned bite, or crooked teeth, we can relieve a lot of discomfort and pain. Misaligned teeth make it more difficult to clean all of the teeth surfaces, which increases your risk for tooth decay.
By undergoing orthodontic treatment, we improve not just the appearance of your teeth but also your oral health. Likewise, by correcting TMJ and fixing a misaligned bite, we can relieve headaches, jaw tension, and lockjaw.
We can reshape your teeth by performing tooth contouring and combining this with dental bonding. These procedures are often used in tandem to produce the most aesthetic and natural-looking results.
We can file down teeth that are too long or sharp or file down teeth so we can completely change their shape and length. Then, the composite resin is applied to build the tooth back up into the shape we want. This is a great way to cover up chips and cracks or discoloration.
Veneers can be bonded to the front 6 teeth to create the appearance of a symmetrical, straight and pearly white smile. For all of our tooth-colored restorations, we use a shade guide to match the shade of the restoration to your natural teeth. If your teeth are a little too dark for your liking, we recommend whitening them before getting the restoration. Dental work like crowns and veneers does not respond to whitening treatments.
We’ll ask you to come in for a consultation with aesthetic dentists so we can assess your oral health and determine if you’re a suitable candidate. You mustn’t have any tooth decay or gum disease before proceeding with aesthetic treatments.
Next, we’ll form a treatment plan after discussing your goals and concerns with you and create a tailor-made plan that adheres to your budget. Depending on the treatment, we may need to take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab so we can fabricate certain restorations or aligners.
Then, we’ll have you come back for a separate appointment where we will perform any necessary treatments under local anesthetic and additional sedation if desired. We will discuss your aftercare and may need to schedule follow-up appointments.
