If you’re not happy with your smile, you can improve it with cosmetic dentistry from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.

Cosmetic dentistry is all about using sound dental techniques to make positive changes to your smile. Even a tiny change can make a big difference.

General and family dentistry addresses the health of your teeth and gums, and that is never overlooked. Cosmetic dentistry improves smiles as a complement  to your dental health.

There are procedures like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers that can transform your smile. But before proceeding we consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth, and the facial shape and coloring of each patient.

Available cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Veneers. Thin shells are affixed to the front of your teeth to cover gaps, cracks, and discoloration.
  • Teeth whitening. Professional whitening surpasses any whitening product you’ll find at the grocery store.
  • Dental implants. One or more titanium posts inserted in your jaw can support one or more replacement teeth.
  • Clear braces. Straighten crooked teeth without metal!

Cosmetic dentistry from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston can take your smile from dull to dazzling! People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to our practice for complete general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Think It’s Not Necessary To Replace Missing Back Teeth?

dental implants HoustonSometimes when people lose a back tooth they wonder whether they should bother doing anything about it. After all, the gap doesn’t show when they smile and there are other teeth to do the chewing. Why not leave it be and save some money? Actually, there are several very good reasons to replace a back tooth with a dental implant from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.

  1. The adjacent tooth (or teeth) may start shifting. If a tooth tilts, moves, or rotates, it can impact the bite. The unopposed tooth can also move, though it generally moves outward from the bone (over-eruption). Teeth that are displaced can become more vulnerable to gum disease, decay, or TMJ pain.
  2. The underlying bone will begin to atrophy. Without the tooth root, the jaw bone shrinks. This changes the dimensions of the face and gives it a sunk-in look due to a decline in supporting bone. The vertical shortening progresses and becomes more pronounced as you get older.
  3. There will be additional stress on the teeth that take over the chewing functions. This can bring about excessive wear, fracture, or pain.

If you have a missing back tooth and want to learn about dental implants, call us at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for implants and for comprehensive general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today!

What If My Dental Crown Cracks, Comes Loose, or Comes Off?

what to do if dental crown comes off HoustonDental crowns are restorations that are cemented over a tooth that has been repaired, and we place a lot of them at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.

While the cement is strong and reliable, crowns have been known to come off. It may have loosened or come off while brushing or flossing, or eating something sticky.  Here is what to do if your crown comes off.

There are three steps:

  1. First things first: find your crown if it has come off entirely. If you can’t find it, don’t worry. We can make a replacement.
  2. Next, give us a call. Even if we didn’t do the original we can reattach it.
  3. If your crown comes off after business hours, use denture adhesive to get it back in place temporarily. Do not use ordinary glue! You can find denture adhesive at a drugstore.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston we place a lot of dental crowns, and with great success. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to our office for our complete cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

North Tomball Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. In this blog post we explain seven ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The procedure uses a tooth-colored material that is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty. Next it is hardened with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth, and can be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry procedure. We’ve treated people from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein, who also come to us for Invisalign clear braces, and much more. Schedule an appointment today!

Smile Makeovers: First Things First

smile design Houston

A smile makeover from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston will give you a brilliant new smile that leads to greater self-confidence and improved dental health. We take a very methodical approach to make sure you’re thrilled with the results.

A smile makeover means combining different cosmetic dentistry techqniues to improve the appearance of your smile. These may include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants
  • Bonding

We’ll also check to see that your bite is good: that is, the way your upper and lower teeth come together. If we discover any problems we’ll need to address those first.

Some of the evaluations may surprise you. We’ll consider the color and shape of your face, including lips and cheeks, and even your hair. The goal is to find just the right balance between these features and the proposed smile improvements.

From there we’ll develop a plan to address the smile improvements you want to make.

Help For Tetracycline Stains At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

Help For Tetracycline And Fluoride Stains At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

There’s hardly anyone out there who wouldn’t like to have a brighter, whiter smile. With professional teeth whitening at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston, getting the whitest possible smile has never been easier.

You might think that over-the-counter whitening products are a simple shortcut to whiter teeth. It’s true there are lots of whitening gels, strips, and toothpastes at any grocery store. But they won’t deliver the results you’ll see from professional whitening.

Effectiveness is one of the biggest advantages to professional whitening. Another is speed. Imagine walking into our office with dull or yellowed teeth and leaving with a brilliant smile! In most cases teeth whitening can be finished in a single office visit.

When it comes to hard-to-remove stains, like those from tetracycline, the ballgame changes a little. Tetracycline is an antibiotic, and in high doses can permanently stain teeth. Lighter stains can usually be removed with teeth whitening. For more serious discoloration, veneers may be in order. These are thin porcelain shells that are custom-fitted to cover the surfaces of teeth.

Teeth whitening from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston can give you a stunning new smile. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to our office for porcelain veneers, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!
