Pasadena Texas Cosmetic Dentist
Cosmetic Dentistry can revolutionize you smile and self-confidence. Usually Cosmetic Dentistry is an elective procedure. With the down economy I am seeing less elective procedures, and that is OK. As much as I love cosmetic dentistry, I love healthy teeth and gum tissue more. Not all cosmetic procedures have to be huge procedures. Making small procedures as beautiful as possible is still cosmetic dentistry.
Teeth whitening , also called teeth bleaching, is a fantastic way to rejuvenate your smile. A nice white smile can transform a smile. The advantages of teeth whitening are you don’t have to cut or prep any teeth. It is easy to do. Teeth bleaching is extremely safe and effective in whitening your teeth.
Also, Cosmetic Dentistry includes repairs and “patch” jobs. This patient came in with a debonded dental veneer (the veneer had come off). Some dentists would of told the patient that they need a new dental veneer. I think that is foolish and not in the patients best interests. I carefully removed the old cement on her tooth and on the inside of the dental veneer. I then re-bonded the dental veneer back on. The patient was extremely happy as she no longer had to hide her smile and she did not have to pay for a new veneer.
Porcelain veneers are a great option for those looking for a natural-looking solution. They are created based on impressions Dr. Nugent takes of your teeth. The veneers mimic the contouring and color of natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers can be used to fix a wide variety of dental issues, such as gaps between teeth, missing teeth, chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth, and stained or discolored teeth. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last between 10 and 15 years, but they still need to be cared for like natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are less invasive than other types of dental restorations, such as dental crowns.
To maintain them, patients should brush at least twice a day and floss daily to reduce plaque and tartar buildup and schedule regular dental checkups with Dr. Nugent. Additionally, porcelain veneer procedures are less invasive than dental crowns.
Cosmetic Dentistry is a combination of many things. As always I want to create the most beautiful smiles as possible. Sometimes it is complete smile makeovers, dental implants to replace missing teeth or simple teeth bleaching.
