Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that utilizes thin sheaths of dental porcelain to conceal any number of flaws. Whether your smile is chipped, cracked, stained, unevenly spaced, or all of the above, porcelain veneers can be custom crafted to transform your flawed teeth into a beautiful smile. The treatment requires two appointments. During your initial treatment visit, we remove a thin sliver of tooth enamel to allow the final veneers to permanently bond to the enamel. Then, we capture bite impressions for the lab and place a temporary veneer. Once we receive your final restoration from the lab, you’ll return to exchange your temporaries for a set of custom-crafted porcelain veneers and a picture-perfect smile.
Our dentist, Dr. Hall, are dedicated to replacing lost tooth structure and restoring function without negatively impacting the appearance of the smile. That’s where natural looking metal-free restoration materials come in. We use all-porcelain restorations to repair and replace lost tooth structure, leaving patients with a completely natural looking and feeling smile.
Interested in transforming a number of minor cosmetic flaws in just one appointment? For some patients with chips, cracks, stains, or gaps, we are able to provide direct bonding as a same-day, cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. The procedure utilizes the same tooth-colored composite resin used for dental fillings. Rather than simply repairing a cavity, we use this versatile material to conceal and correct flaws that mar an otherwise beautiful, healthy smile. Best of all, this conservative solution allows us to complete the entire procedure without removing any healthy tooth structure.
In-Practice Teeth Whitening
A brighter smile is one of the most commonly sought after cosmetic dentistry services, and for many of our patients, repeated attempts to brighten tooth enamel with over the counter products have already proven unsuccessful. Our professional teeth whitening solutions deliver dramatic results for patients, brightening smiles up to ten shades in just one appointment. We use a higher dose of professional-grade whitening gel, and because we’re able to prevent saliva from neutralizing the whitening agent, the effects are a dramatic improvement over what’s possible with store bought whiteners.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you want to brighten your smile more gradually, our at-home teeth whitening gels may be a better solution. Like in-practice teeth whitening, these treatments are customized to meet your individual whitening goals. We can adjust the dose of active teeth whitening agent and wear times to accommodate any level of discoloration without causing unnecessary sensitivity or inconvenience. Over the course of about two weeks of daily application, you can achieve results up to ten shades brighter.
Gum Recontouring / Crown Lengthening
Do you have a smile that looks too gummy or teeth that look stubby? The cosmetic dentistry treatment you need may not actually be for your teeth. Instead, we may recommend a gum lift to reshape the soft tissue revealing additional, beautiful tooth structure. We can perform this procedure for most patients using comfortable, state-of-the-art soft tissue lasers, so your smile is completely transformed without unnecessary pain or extensive healing time. The laser we use can remove just a small tracing of gum tissue. Many patients leave with flawless smiles and recover without discomfort.
Digital Imaging / Virtual Smile Designing
You’ve likely heard the old adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” At Katy Family Dentists, we couldn’t agree more. As part of our commitment to ensuring patients receive the best possible treatments for their unique needs and goals, we’ve invested in digital smile design software. Using digital photos of the smile, we can show you what the results of different cosmetic dentistry solutions could look like. You'll know before we ever begin treatment just what to expect when we’re done.
