As spring shines down over Texas, certain activities begin. You can enjoy a nice leisurely walk among the bars and restaurants downtown. You can relax in the park and take in the sights with a picnic. You can scream your head off at an amusement park.
Spring is a time to be social with your friends and loved ones, a time to display a wide smile at every possible opportunity. But is your smile up to the task? Or is there something about your smile that makes you a little embarrassed to show your teeth when the cameras come out?
In our last post, we told you about three of the exciting cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Advanced Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX. We looked at how you can brighten your smile at home with professional teeth whitening, about how dental bonding can repair minor flaws in you smile, and about how dental veneers can correct major flaws in your smile.
Since that post many patients have asked about other exciting options for cosmetic dentistry. So in today’s post, we’re going to look at four more cosmetic dentistry treatments that can give you the smile of your dreams. Let’s get started!
Smooth Out Your Smile with Teeth Recontouring
Sometimes patients have just a couple minor flaws in their smile that the want to repair. But they’d prefer to keep their smile all natural and not rely on dental bonding or dental veneers. In some cases, teeth recontouring may be a wonderful option to smooth out your smile.
Teeth recontouring can smooth out your enamel and remove unsightly ridges, bulges, and pits from your teeth. We can even perform minor corrections to the shape of your tooth. Teeth recontouring is a conservative procedure which is quick and effective. We simply use filling tools to reshape your teeth in a quick and pain-free procedure.
Say Goodbye to a Gummy Smile with Gum Recontouring
When you look in the mirror do see more pink than white? Gummy smiles can embarrass you and leave you unwilling to show your teeth for the camera. In the past the only way to repair your gummy smile was to undergo a painful surgery that took a long time to heal. Not anymore!
Now we can use an advanced Electrosurge machine to reduce the size of your gums and leave more of your beautiful teeth visible. After numbing your gums, we use a heated wire to reduce your gum tissue instantly without bleeding or stitches. Patients say the procedure is completely comfortable and free of lengthy healing times.
Repair a Damage Tooth with a Cosmetic Crown
Your teeth can become damaged from numerous causes. Decay can eat away at your teeth, an accident or trauma can cause damage to your teeth, or your teeth can fracture from something as seemingly harmless as chewing ice. But we are often able to restore the complete form and function of your tooth with a cosmetic crown.
We begin by reducing the size of your existing tooth to remove the damage or decay. Then we design a cosmetic crown that perfectly matches your natural teeth. Then the crown is placed over your tooth to restore it’s form, function, and appearance. It’s such a perfect match that no one will ever realize you had a little help from the cosmetic crown.
Enjoy a Completely Customized Smile Makeover
If there’s a number of things you dislike about your smile, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover. A smile makeover is not a single cosmetic dentistry procedure, instead we plan out a variety of treatments to help give you the smile of your dreams. We can combine any number of services such as professional teeth whitening, cosmetic crowns, and dental veneers for your smile makeover.
We begin smile makeovers by sitting down with you to discuss your dream smile. Then we can create a mockup of your new smile to give you an exclusive preview of your smile before you begin treatment. That way you can make any changes or any adjustments before we begin treatment. In just a few treatments we can help you realize the smile of your dreams.
