Cosmetic Dentistry Makes Plano Smiles Shine Bright
These days, there is no reason you have to live with a smile you are not fully confident about. Whether you have minor imperfections that take away from your smile in a big way or have sustained significant damage that is very noticeable, cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Sam Antoon can help you love your smile again. Your Plano dentist is pleased to offer a number of popular cosmetic services from porcelain veneers to dramatic teeth whitening and more.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped restorations that cover the front side of the teeth that show when you smile. They can be used to improve the appearance of healthy teeth affected by just about any cosmetic imperfection you can imagine, from chips and cracks to severe stains and gaps. Dr. Antoon will listen to your smile goals, evaluate your teeth and overall facial features, and put together a treatment plan that suits your needs to a T.
For damaged front teeth, you need a solution that is as beautiful as it is sturdy and long-lasting. Forget about a metal restoration that will take away from the appearance of your smile — instead, Plano dentist Dr. Antoon offers metal-free restorations. Dental crowns and bridges made out of dental porcelain blend flawlessly with your surrounding tooth enamel, and they can be expected to last as long as those made of visible gold or metal alloys.
Direct bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure in which Dr. Antoon uses biocompatible composite resin (the same material used in tooth-colored fillings) to rebuild and reshape missing or damaged tooth enamel. Chipped, broken, and irregularly shaped teeth can all be beautifully restored using this method, which can often be completed in a single visit to the dentist’s office. For many people, direct bonding can also provide a more affordable, non-invasive alternative to porcelain veneers.
Professional teeth whitening erases the stains left behind by what you eat and drink every day — and it does so much faster and far more effectively than any treatment you can pick up at the pharmacy. In fact, Zoom! Whitening can brighten your teeth by up to 8 shades in a single visit. To achieve your whitest smile, your Plano dental team will apply the high powered gel to the surface of the teeth that show when you smile and activate it under a special light.
