Your smile can say a lot about you, especially when you’re meeting people for the first time. If that doesn’t sound like good news to you, it might be time to explore the idea of a cosmetic dentistry makeover with Dr. Todd Balington’s help here in Denton, TX. Our practice offers several aesthetic-based services that can banish chips, cracks, stains, discoloration, gaps, and other common dental flaws, leaving you with a look that’s ready to be shown off proudly. Please contact Denton Dental Center today if you have any questions for our staff, or if you’re ready to schedule your first consultation.
A singular cosmetic flaw is a problem, but experiencing several all at once can be overwhelming. If you’d prefer not to undergo multiple, time-consuming procedures in order to achieve the smile you want, porcelain veneers can provide a comprehensive transformation and truly dazzling results in record time. Unlike a typical dental crown, veneers are restorations that are designed to be ultra-thin, allowing them to cover just the front surfaces of certain teeth. Once in place, veneers effectively hide years of chips, cracks, gaps, stains, and more behind a new, flaw-free appearance.
In addition to their cosmetic quality, veneers are also surprisingly tough – they actually resist staining better than natural enamel on average! With proper care and maintenance, they’re likely to serve your smile well for 15 years or even longer.
When your hurting smile is in need of a new crown, inlay, onlay, or other restoration to regain its fullest potential, the last thing you want to be worried about is whether the new addition will look too unnatural. At Denton Dental Center, we’re proud to offer the best of both worlds when it comes to restorative dentistry: aesthetics AND functionality. We use E-max materials, which is a type of ceramic that is known for its seamlessly beautiful and long-lasting quality. In fact, it even reflects light just like a natural tooth does! Because they’re metal-free, E-max restorations are also more comfortable and biocompatible than the silver and gold alternatives of yesterday. If you’ve struggled with painful sensitivity or even outright allergies to these materials in the past, this option is right for you! Better yet, we can complete your new restoration in just a single appointment with the power of E4D one-visit technology.
When a small gap or chip looms large in your smile, bonding is a simple and fast procedure that can fix the problem. Dr. Balington can typically complete the process in just one appointment – he’ll apply the tooth-colored resin to the tooth and sculpt it into a pleasing addition that looks right at home while covering the offending area. While the results achieved may not last as long as similar procedures, patients should be able to rely on them for multiple years.
When most of our patients come in for cosmetic treatment, the first thing on their list is brighter teeth. It’s not hard to understand why – stains and discoloration can happen over time for a multitude of reasons, including old age, diet, genetics, and even the use of certain medications. If your priority is to achieve dazzling changes fast, in-practice whitening could be the best choice for you. This procedure is completed over the course of a single, convenient appointment, and patients can expect their smile to be multiple shades whiter once it’s completed.
If you’d prefer to brighten your teeth at a more gradual pace, take-home whitening kits are also available from our Denton, TX location. These kits contain high-grade whitening gel and personalized oral trays; the patient simply needs to wear both together for a prescribed amount of time each day. This routine can conform to your schedule, and it can be completed in the comfort of your own home. Within a few weeks, patients should see noticeably positive results!
