If you have cracked, chipped, stained, or gapped teeth, Dr. Meredith Davis can help you level the playing field with cosmetic dentistry services at our Richardson dental office. With our range of treatments, you can enhance and even transform your smile into something you’ll be proud to show off.
For people who want to get a Hollywood smile, porcelain veneers are the answer. They have been the secret of the stars for years, and they can give you everything from a small boost to a complete smile makeover. With just two appointments, they can:
- Instantly whiten your teeth
- Fix chips and cracks
- Close obvious gaps
- Make your teeth appear straighter (instant orthodontics!)
Porcelain veneers are very thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the teeth to improve their overall appearance. They are so flexible that you can basically show us a picture of the smile you want, and we can give it to you!
To get them, we’ll start by creating a wax model of what your teeth will look like with the veneers. This will give you the chance to see what your new smile will look like before we begin treatment, and it will also allow us to make any adjustments you would like. Once everything is perfect, we’ll prep your teeth to fit the veneers at one visit, and then we’ll place them during the next. Many other practices will rush through these steps, leading you to make many follow-up visits to get them fixed. We prefer to do everything right the first time, which is why we take each of these steps to make sure you always leave our office completely satisfied.
One of the toughest problems a person can deal with is a severely damaged front tooth. They think about it whenever they smile at someone, need to start a conversation, or simply want to take a bite. The problems it can cause are seemingly endless, and a traditional silver or metal crown just won’t solve them. You need a solution that marries the best qualities of both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Fortunately, we have a treatment that does exactly that: metal-free restorations.
These all-porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays can be aesthetically designed so they both look and feel just like your natural teeth and blend in perfectly with your smile. Plus, the porcelain is just as strong and durable as metal, so you’ll be able to trust your tooth the next time you bite into an apple. Also, because there is no metal, you won’t have to deal with the temperature sensitivity so commonly associated with traditional metal restorations.
A small chip or crack on your teeth can make a HUGE difference in how it looks. The smallest flaw can mean the difference between a confident smile and damaged self-esteem. For these little problems, we offer a quick and easy solution: direct bonding. This treatment actually allows Dr. Davis to literally sculpt your tooth into the perfect shape and size to restore its appearance.
She’ll use a small amount of composite resin and mold it to the tooth to mask any small imperfections. Then, she’ll harden it using a curing light, and your new smile is ready! Even though the treatment is quick, it can easily last for 10 years or more with proper oral hygiene.
Opalescence® Teeth Whitening
We know it’s tempting to just buy a teeth whitening kit off the shelf to fix your yellow and stained teeth, but wait, there’s a better answer! We can actually make a whitening kit that is custom designed just for YOU. With one easy appointment, we can send you home with custom-made mouth trays that will make sure our powerful whitening gel is perfectly distributed on all of your teeth. Plus, our gel will be much more concentrated than anything you can buy on your own, guaranteeing you’ll get a bright, white smile that will last every time you use it.
