Dr. Michael Nugent DDS Cosmetic Dentist | Pasadena, TX

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals with improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, but in some cases, cosmetic dentistry can also be used to correct cosmetic issues caused by accidents or birth defects.

An aesthetic dentist can restore your natural smile and give you back your confidence. Some common practices of aesthetic dentistry include dental implants for missing teeth, veneers to cover imperfections, professional teeth whitening, dental bonding or Invisalign treatment to straighten teeth, and more.

Why is Aesthetic Dentistry Important for Your Oral Health?

Having missing or misaligned teeth can not only make you self-conscious about your smile but can also cause other oral health issues. Missing teeth can lead the gums to recede and expose the roots, which can be painful. It can also lead to bone loss and a receding jaw. Such issues can lead to other dental problems like tooth decay, chronic bad breath, and gum disease.

Gum disease and other dental issues can cause several other health problems like heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems. With aesthetic dentistry services, you will have a dental treatment that will improve your smile and give you better oral and overall health.

We offer local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral pre-medications, or IV sedation options to our patients of Pasadena, TX. You deserve to feel comfortable while undergoing services, and our dentist will make you feel safe while you are under.

Restorative Dentistry

Our dentist, Dr. Nugent of Pasadena, Texas, offers many restorative dental services to help you get your smile back. Whether it is the need for dental fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, or extractions, Dr. Nugent and his team are at your service.

Tooth-colored fillings- Metal fillings can be harmful to your teeth, and for a patient with metal allergies, they simply will not do. This is why we use a tooth-colored composite filling to save the life of your teeth and make them look more natural. They are used to repair damages from cavities, cracks, or fractures.

Crowns and Bridges- Crowns are used to cover the complete tooth. If a tooth has been cracked or has severe damage, a crown can be placed over it to save the tooth with a natural look. Bridges are typically used with crowns and are appliances that use your existing teeth as anchors to have fake teeth placed in between to save the form of your jawline and overall dental health.

Root Canals- Root canals are performed when the root is damaged, diseased, or begins to die from cracks, decay, or trauma. The root has to be removed, and then your dentist can restore the tooth. Root canals have been known for being painful, but our dentist makes it as comfortable as possible and ensures every patient is in the least amount of pain.
