Here are three of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options available in Arlington, TX,

Dental Bonding

Bonding is one of the easiest and cost-effective cosmetic treatments you can get in Arlington, TX, and this simple treatment can handle everything from chips to discolorations. During bonding, our dentist will apply a small amount of tooth-colored material over the imperfection or imperfections. Once the bonding resin is molded into place, we will use a dental light to harden the material permanently to the tooth.

Teeth Whitening

Are you dealing with a dull, yellow smile due to certain foods and drinks? Do you want a simple and effective way to get your smile several shades whiter? In as little as one hour, our Arlington, TX, dentist can get your teeth up to eight shades whiter. Teeth whitening is most effective on stains caused by consuming certain foods and drinks; however, this treatment will not be able to whiten artificial restorations like fillings, crowns or bridges.

Dental Veneers

If you are dealing with any of these imperfections and want to cover them up then dental veneers may be the best approach:

  • Discolorations that don’t respond to teeth whitening
  • Chips and cracks
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Malformed or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven or worn teeth
  • Twisted or crooked teeth

Veneers are very thin shells, often made from porcelain, that covers the front surface of your teeth to improve the overall color, shape, size and alignment of your smile. A veneer is custom-made based on measurements taken of your teeth. From there, the veneer is bonded to the front of each tooth using a special dental resin and dental laser.
