A Wealth of Cosmetic Dental Options in Garland, TX

These days, there’s a fine line between cosmetic and general dentistry. Many of the general dental services we offer will restore your oral health but also enhance your appearance in the process. That leaves us with a wide array of cosmetic services to choose from:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Porcelain dental crowns
  • Tooth replacement

During the planning stage, Dr. Jung will explain the pros and cons of each of these treatments. With so many choices, there’s often more than one way to address a cosmetic smile flaw. We’ll start by recommending conservative options that will keep your smile makeover within your budget. 

Cosmetic Dentistry Options in Detail

Tooth-Colored Fillings and Dental Bonding

During previous decades, dentists relied on silver amalgam to fill cavities. This silver detracts from your smile and tells the world that you’ve had a filling. With today’s tooth-colored options, your dentistry is between you and your dentist—no one will guess that you’ve even had a cavity.

You may also opt to change out your older silver fillings for our tooth-colored, composite resin!

The same material that we use to treat cavities discreetly can also conceal tooth flaws like discoloration, small gaps between teeth, tooth shape issues, and minor chips. Your dentist applies the resin, treats the issue, uses a special light to set the material, and finishes up with a polish.

Porcelain Veneers

Think of porcelain veneers in Garland, TX as the perfect camouflage for your teeth. These thin shells bonded to your teeth create the illusion of a straight, height-aligned smile—just like you see on people in magazines and on billboards. Veneers also conceal discoloration, slightly crooked teeth, gummy smiles, and small smile gaps.

Veneers are considered permanent because your dentist removes a tiny amount of enamel before bonding your veneers.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening in Garland, TX is an inexpensive cosmetic dentistry option that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Many patients don’t even realize the extent of their discoloration until after their treatment when they see the results.

Whitening your teeth under the care of a dentist is preferable to over-the-counter treatments for several reasons:

  • Even whitening results
  • Whitening treatment that is safe for your teeth and gums
  • Whitening that considers your restorations
  • Dramatic results

Porcelain Dental Crowns

We commonly use a dental crown to support a weak tooth following a root canal treatment or trauma, but dental crowns also conceal tooth flaws, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Shape issues
  • Cracks
  • Small gaps

Think of a dental crown as a tooth-shaped helmet that goes over a treated tooth and blends in seamlessly with your smile.

Tooth Replacement

Tooth replacement is considered general and cosmetic. It is true that you need a full set of teeth to chew and feel confident, but also to protect your remaining teeth from shifting on your gum. When this happens, it misaligns your bite and leads to further oral health complications.

We offer a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implants.

Taking Care of Your New Smile

Following your cosmetic dentistry, your dentist or a team member will always provide instructions to complement the longevity of any restoration work or teeth whitening.

As a rule, you care for fillings, bonding, crowns, and dental implants the same way you care for natural teeth—brush and floss at least two times each day. And as with natural teeth, you should never use your restorations as a tool to open a bottle or something similar.

For professional teeth whitening, we recommend avoiding or reducing red wine, tea, coffee, and bright sauces. We also suggest quitting smoking to keep your teeth brighter for longer. Remember, smoking has been linked to several health issues, including periodontal disease.

Cosmetic and restorative dentistry also will not prevent oral health complications like periodontal disease, which can cause tooth loss and loss of your new smile. It is important to continue visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and professional teeth cleanings. Your dentist will also evaluate your cosmetic dentistry during your routine exam to make sure everything is functioning as it should.

With proper care, your new smile can last for a long time—maybe even for life!
