Pamper Yourself With Professional Teeth Whitening

fast teeth whitening North Tomball

Have you ever thought about getting your teeth whitened? At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX you get to relax in a comfy chair, and enjoy a bright smile when you leave.

Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. The good news is that it has never been easier to achieve. There are tons of whitening products available at the grocery store: toothpastes and strips and other whitening products.

Most commercially available products do an adequate job whitening your teeth. But none can match professional teeth whitening.

We use the KöR® whitening system. A powerful whitening gel is placed in trays that are custom-fitted to your teeth. The trays have a special seal to keep the gel in and keep saliva from contaminating it. The results, we think you’ll agree, are quite startling.

You deserve to be pampered! At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX our teeth whitening is unmatched. Patients from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. Contact us today!

Correcting Severe Dental Problems At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

Correcting Severe Dental Problems in Houston

Each restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedure performed at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX can address a specific issue. A porcelain veneer can correct the surface of a tooth that is discolored or has had enamel loss. Bonding can fill a small chip in an otherwise healthy tooth.

Some dental problems are more extensive and require a combination of procedures. Crown restoration combined with soft tissue grafts can restore a severely decayed tooth with the root exposed. A bone graft and dental implant can restore a missing tooth in an area where the jaw bone has receded. Orthodontics followed by tooth whitening totally transforms a smile by straightening and bleaching it.

What is the difference between tooth bleaching and whitening? Whitening is the term for procedures which remove surface stains to restore the degree of natural lightness. Bleaching goes even further by lightening teeth beyond their natural shade.

We live in an age where virtually any dental issue can be corrected. To find out what cosmetic and restorative dentistry from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX can do for your smile, come see us!

Don’t Settle For An Unattractive Smile

Don’t Settle For An Unattractive Smile In Houston!

No one likes to settle for less than the best, especially with something as important as your smile. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we have cosmetic dentistry solutions for your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry refers to a group of procedures that, individually or collectively, create positive changes to your smile. One procedure, such as teeth whitening, will go along way toward upgrading your smile. Two or more gives you a complete smile makeover.

Cosmetic Procedures

The term “cosmetic dentistry” means different things to different dentists. One practice might call a dental implant cosmetic, while another will consider it restorative.

With that in mind, here are some of the more common cosmetic dentistry procedures:

  • Teeth Whitening: Nothing you buy at the store can can compare to teeth whitening from a cosmetic dentist. The bleaching ingredients may be the same, but professional strength whitening far surpasses anything over-the-counter. You’ll get a dazzling new smile!
  • Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Made to match existing teeth, they can hide cracks, gaps, and other imperfections.
  • Dental Implants: Implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacement. Strictly speaking, it’s a titanium post inserted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. A replacement tooth is attached to the post. They look and function like natural teeth.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX we use cosmetic dentistry to complement the smiles of each patient. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to us for our complete general dentistry. Request an appointment with us today!

Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Houston Dental Financing

This post from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX looks at the risks posed by those ubiquitous sports drinks. Many health-conscious people drink them regularly for hydration during workouts.

While it’s true that they help maintain electrolyte levels in the body (and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks), their acidity can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel erodes, those pearly whites can become stained, discolored, and full of decay.

Nobody wants darkened teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.

If you have already noticed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to do something about it, cosmetic dentistry can help! Consider professional teeth whitening. We offer the KöR® bleaching system, which can brighten your smile in a single office visit.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we have brightened countless smiles with teeth whitening. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to us for dental implants, and much more. Request an appointment today!

When Style And Oral Health Collide

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we focus on cosmetic dentistry and patient-centered dental care. Today, we wanted to talk to you about the potential health benefits that cosmetic dentistry could bring you!

We know that the term ‘cosmetic’ might be fitting, but it can also be misleading. Most cosmetic dentistry procedures actually do double duty! They help you with the aesthetics of your smile and they also improve and maintain your dental health.

Our team has put together this simple list containing the health benefits of procedures that might seem, at first, to be purely cosmetic.

Oral Health Benefits

  • KöR® teeth whitening not only helps your smile shine brighter; it also helps keep your teeth healthy by removing stains. This strengthens your enamel and keeps your gums clean.
  • Porcelain veneers might be our most popular cosmetic option, but, in addition to the improvement of aesthetic smile consistency, they can protect the front of your teeth and create long-lasting, structural support for your jaw and teeth.
  • Invisalign® Clear Braces can correct smiles in need of some restructuring. In addition to giving you a red-carpet smile, these help keep your teeth and jaw lined-up and prevent overcrowding, allowing you to easily clean your teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry is where oral health and style combine. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, we serve  patients from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein, who come to us for these and other cosmetic options, as well as general dentistry. Contact us today to find out how you can look and feel healthier!

Whitening vs Bleaching At The Gentle Art of Dentistry

Whitening vs Bleaching At The Gentle Art of Dentistry In Houston

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental service that we provide almost daily at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX. Everyone, it seems, would like to have a brighter smile.

And why not? A whiter smile boosts self confidence and can take years of wear and discoloration away.

Since modern dentistry offers a vast list of cosmetic options, we know it can be hard to distinguish between different procedures. In order for our patients to stay informed, we have put together a simple comparison between teeth whitening and teeth bleaching. The terms actually describe two different procedures.

Teeth whitener consists of any over-the-counter product used to remove stains from tooth enamel. Toothpaste, DIY strips, and some mouthwashes are safe and cost-effective, and can improve teeth with continued, regular use. They’re a good choice for anyone with sensitive teeth and gums.

The term “bleaching,” however, refers to a teeth whitening product that contains a form of bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. For best results, teeth bleaching should be administered by a dentist. The results tend to be far superior than any over-the-counter product.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX we have brightened countless smiles with professional-grade teeth whitening. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein come to us for whitening and other cosmetic dentistry services. Request an appointment with us today!

7 Ways To Fix A Chipped Tooth

fix broken tooth Houston

In a perfect world, each of your teeth would stay healthy, strong, and brilliantly white throughout your life. Unfortunately, most of us will need to restore a tooth at some point. At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX we can help.

A tooth can be compromised by decay, enamel erosion, a chip or crack, gum disease, or injury. Sometimes old restorations break and need to be replaced or root canals performed decades ago develop an abscess. Our team has put together a list of your options, so you can pick the one that works best for you!

Seven Different Options

  1. Dental Bonding: Bonding is used to fix minor cosmetic problems like small chips, cracks, discoloration, and spaces between teeth. A composite resin is applied and shaped as necessary.
  2. Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are permanently attached to the front of natural teeth. They can cover chips, cracks, and gaps, or the alignment of a tooth.
  3. Fillings: Modern white fillings are strong and inconspicuous. Patients love them because they blend in so well with natural tooth color. People concerned about the safety of metal fillings often replace those with non-metal white fillings.
  4. Inlays and Onlays: Inlays are applied to the center of a tooth’s biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point). An onlay restores one or more cusps of a tooth.
  5. Crowns: A crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, strength, and function. A crown is often necessary for a tooth that has had a root canal, with severe decay, or as the replacement tooth in a dental bridge.
  6. Soft Tissue Grafts: Gum recession puts teeth and underlying bone at risk. Soft tissue grafting can cover the exposed root of a tooth to prevent further damage. Gum surgery is also done for cosmetic reasons, such as reshaping a gumline.
  7. Dental Implants: Implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. Once they fuse with the bone, implants can support one or more artificial teeth.

At The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX we offer complete restorative dentistry. People from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to us for general and cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Request an appointment today!

Gap-Tooth Smiles Aren’t Quite As Adorable Anymore

dental implant cost East Spring

Let’s face it: a jack-o-lantern smile doesn’t look as cute as it did when you were five. Except for unique circumstances, when you lost a tooth as a child, you could always fall back on the reassurance that it would grow back. If you’ve lost a tooth as an adult, or have cracked or chipped teeth, The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX can help restore that same reassurance. We can’t guarantee they’ll grow back, but after our treatment, they’ll sure look like they did!

Teeth can become compromised over time by various factors: staining, decay, chipping, or aging. In order to help, our team provides only the most informative, kind, effective care solutions. We understand the anxiety that comes from the prospect of losing your adult teeth. So, our preference is always to preserve your natural teeth. However, this is sometimes not feasible. Don’t worry! No case is a lost case! We offer several alternatives to maintaining and improving your smile.

  • Dental Veneers
    If you still have your teeth, but are not comfortable with them, these might be your answer. Porcelain veneers offer an economical approach to cosmetic adjustments, fixing uneven color, size, or shape. They consist of very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They enhance unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
  • Dental Bridge
    A dental bridge is used where a tooth is missing. It “bridges” a gap between teeth. It is a restoration with a false tooth attached to the surrounding teeth. Dental bridges have been used successfully for decades.
  • Dental Implant
    A dental implant is a more extensive replacement for a missing tooth. An implant consists of an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture. An implant is often the optimal restoration, as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from the bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
  • Dentures
    Most people have heard of dentures: a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed by the wearer. These are custom-made and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled, and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.
