Grapevine Cosmetic Dentistry
Why Cosmetic Dentistry?
At Grapevine Dental Care, we believe cosmetic dentistry is an essential part of dentistry. Some people dismiss cosmetic dentistry because it’s not “functional,” but we know that one of the essential functions of your teeth is to give you an attractive smile. This is as important as your teeth’s role in helping you speak clearly—it helps you introduce yourself and make a positive impression. Without an attractive smile, social situations are much harder.
That’s why at Grapevine Dental Care, essentially every procedure is also a cosmetic dentistry procedure. We believe that if your restorations don’t look attractive, they’re not done right, so we take the time to ensure that every filling, every crown, every dental implant is as attractive as it is functional.
In addition, we offer many procedures specifically designed to improve the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain veneers are perhaps the most powerful cosmetic dentistry procedure. They can reshape small or damaged teeth, close gaps in your smile, straighten crooked or rotated teeth, and even conceal discolored teeth that can’t be whitened. Porcelain veneers give long-lasting and very attractive results. For more detailed information, we also have a Questions about Dental Veneers page.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry, because as we age our teeth naturally become stained by food, drink, and other environmental factors. Discolored teeth are not just unattractive, they are considered a sign of poor health, as well as age. So people use teeth whitening to improve their attractiveness and look healthier and younger. We use KöR Deep Bleaching because in our experience it’s the only one that gives people results they are truly happy with.
Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth without metal braces. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth like a sports mouthguard. They’re completely removable, so there’s no worry about cleaning braces—and the ill effects that can come with poor oral hygiene when wearing braces—and you can eat all your favorite foods. Treatment lasts about as long as normal braces, although some may be good candidates for Invisalign Express, which can give results in as little as six weeks. You can learn more details about Invisalign on our Questions about Clear Braces page as well.
