Having the smile of your dreams is not far away. The cosmetic dentists in Irving, Texas offer clear braces, veneers, and laser teeth whitening options to help you get one step closer. But, also, there are ways to improve your smile at home that you can discuss with your dentist. In the decision process for the best option for your smile, a full dental work up with your dental and medical history will be assessed.

Furthermore, our dental team understands that having straight and white teeth are not the only necessary components to a perfect smile. Likewise, we know that a smile is a part of enhancing your self-esteem and physical confidence. By the time some people ask their dentist what to do about their smile, they’ve already tried over the counter options. In addition to enhancing facial muscles and the general appearance of your teeth, we can help you determine if you are a candidate for braces or veneers.

Now, let’s start with teeth whitening. Whitening is accomplished through a product that causes an intrinsic change to the tooth enamel versus just surface stain removal. Statistics show that teeth whitening has become one of the first things many people ask their dentists.

Tooth whitening or bleaching is one of the most cost-effective, least invasive procedures that can improve your smile. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that any method be supervised by your dentist after a thorough dental exam that determines your best option for whitening. Laser teeth whitening is an available option for some and is administered in a dental office because bleach is applied to each tooth with heat to enhance the process.

Next, for those who already have white teeth or are looking for another edge in their smile, there are alignment procedures. Common invisible braces include ceramic brackets, inside braces, and clear aligners. Veneers can be porcelain or direct that require the knowledge of the shape of your tooth and time to prep. Usually, people opt for veneers when the damage to their teeth is extensive or they are looking for a faster fix.

Traditional braces are also used, and similar to veneers require time. Braces are an option if you have crowded teeth, protrusions, alignment issues, irregular spacing, or crookedness. A clear aligner for those who may have similar smiling concerns is Invisalign. The candidates for Invisalign include those with crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, overbite, cross-bite, or bite irregularities. Another thing to remember is that braces are not removable, but Invisalign is.

Whether it is an overbite, or you have crowded teeth or crooked teeth, we can find the solution that best fits you!
