Whether it’s a chipped tooth, misaligned teeth, a missing tooth, or discoloration that’s stopping you from smiling, cosmetic dentistry holds the key to your renewed confidence. Cosmetic dentistry is used to correct dental flaws, realign teeth, and give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Drs. Stephen and Mark Lukin are cosmetic dentists at Lukin Family Dentist in Sugar Land, TX. They are happy to discuss ways to improve your smile.
Common Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Invisalign are clear, flexible teeth aligners that straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. They are practically invisible so no one will know you’re wearing them and treatment with Invisalign is often faster than with regular braces.
Professional Teeth Whitening
This is the most popular and sought after form of cosmetic dentistry. It brings discolored teeth back to a natural brightness. Because the whitening solution is stronger than that used in over-the-counter products, it gets rid of darker stains. Talk to your Sugar Land dentist if you're interested in learning more.
These are thin porcelain caps that cover the front of your teeth to hide small flaws. They can change the color, shape, size, and alignment of your teeth. They look perfectly natural and are designed to match your other teeth. Porcelain veneers will not stain over time.
For this procedure, your Sugar Land dentist will apply a resin to fix chipped or broken teeth or to change the shape of a tooth. The resin matches the natural color of your teeth so that the restoration is not noticeable. This is a less expensive way to improve your smile than veneers.
A dental crown is a cap that completely covers a damaged tooth to restore its shape, function, and strength. Dental crowns are custom designed so that they look and feel just like your natural teeth. Combined with a dental implant, crowns can also be used to replace lost teeth.
