Even though teeth are just a small part of the body, they can make a huge impact on your overall happiness. A beautiful smile gives you confidence and energy in every aspect of life, from boosting your work performance to improving your relationships.
At Austin Family Dentistry, we’re not here to just clean your teeth. We believe in empowering you with the tools you need to improve the quality of your life. That’s why we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry options. Check out some of our most popular cosmetic solutions.
Porcelain veneers act as an outer covering around the teeth that mimic the look and feel of your natural tooth. We’ll remove around 0.5 mm of tooth enamel from the front of your teeth, then bond a customized veneer around it. This is a great option for misaligned, cracked and severely damaged teeth that can’t be fixed with a simple crown or bleaching.
If you want to whiten your teeth by three or four shades instantly, we’ll dramatically change the color in just one sitting. However, if you prefer whitening your teeth yourself, you can use our take home bleaching kit that will change your smile in only a couple of days. We also offer a free teeth whitening for new patients.
Dental implants are a great way to completely restore missing teeth. Implants are a synthetic structure that anchors to the jawbone of the mouth where the root normally grows. Once placed, the bone will naturally grow and restore around the implant. Dental implants are biocompatible and made out of titanium. Because of this, they will never decay over time.
Once the bone adheres to the implant, we’ll place a crown around the tooth to match the existing shape and color of the rest of your teeth.
Implants require surgery and around three to four months for the bone to completely heal. Although the procedure is costly and takes time, we guarantee you will get what you pay for. Implants have a 98-99% success rate and are extremely durable over time. They are by far the highest quality solution for missing teeth.
Bridges & Partials
If you’re looking for a less invasive and inexpensive alternative to implants – try bridges. Bridges are exactly what they sound like – they literally bridge the space between missing teeth. Once the bridge is permanently placed in the space of the missing tooth, it will keep others around it from shifting.
Partials act in the same way, however they are removable, like dentures. They must be removed and cleaned frequently.
While orthodontics are a great solution for teenagers, most adults prefer a more invisible alternative to braces, like Invisalign. Invisalign is a smooth, transparent “tray” that forms around your teeth and straightens them over time. It acts like a retainer – just pop it in your mouth and take it out when needed. Its plastic design is easy to clean and virtually invisible.
