With summer just around the corner, there will be more get-togethers, cookouts, and fun activities to participate in. If you haven’t already, you may receive invitations to a reunion, a wedding, or another special event.

You’ll naturally want your smile to look its best, especially if there’s a chance you may run into people you haven’t seen in a while. Take a look in the mirror when you get a moment. If your smile isn’t as bright as you’d like it to be, the expert team at Houston Uptown Dentists can help you get it into shape with a smile enhancement.

We can act as a sort of “personal trainer” for your smile – only we’ll do all the work and you won’t have to lift a finger! Call us today at 832-463-1021 to schedule your consultation. Let Dr. Juarez treat your smile to her years of cosmetic dentistry experience!

We offer many ways to create a luxurious new look for your smile – just in time for all your summer activities. Below we outline just a few of the services we might use to make over your smile and get it sparkling again.

Transform Your Grin With Dental Veneers

For a radical smile enhancement, it’s hard to beat the versatility of dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells (resembling a fingernail) that Dr. Juarez can bond to the front of your imperfect teeth.

They will quickly hide smile flaws like chips, cracks, pits, stains, worn teeth, misshapen teeth, and slightly uneven teeth. Usually only two visits are required to get your new look using veneers. Plus, your new smile will look so natural, people will never suspect you’ve had cosmetic dentistry done!

At Houston Uptown Dentists, we offer standard porcelain veneers as well as Lumineers veneers. Placing standard veneers usually requires that we remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for them.

We’ll help you decide if Lumineers may work for your situation. They are “no-prep” veneers that are so thin we can usually place them on your teeth without any enamel removal. They are made from super-thin, super-strong porcelain that will give you a beautiful new smile for many years.

Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening Treatment

Nothing shows the world that you’re successful and confident quite like a brilliant, white smile! Dr. Juarez and our team make it easy to get a whiter, more beautiful smile with your choice of either in-office or at-home teeth whitening. You can show up to your event looking like a celebrity!

If you want a fast and dramatic smile transformation, schedule a whitening treatment in our office. We offer both the Zoom and TouchWhite systems. Zoom can allow you to whiten your teeth up to eight shades in just 45 minutes of treatment!

For patients with sensitivity to standard whitening agents, the TouchWhite system uses a water-based whitening gel. Combined with a special pulsed laser, it offers dramatic results with no discomfort.

If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, we’ll provide you with custom whitening trays and a concentrated whitening solution. You can use your trays whenever and wherever you want, plus our professional at-home treatment will be quicker and safer than over-the-counter kits.

Dental Bonding Will Correct Minor Smile Flaws

Maybe your smile is in overall good shape, except for a small defect or two. In that case, dental bonding may be a good choice. Bonding uses composite resin, the same material we use for our tooth-colored fillings.

Dr. Juarez will select a shade of material that closely matches your other teeth, then she will apply the resin to correct chips, cracks, deep stains, and even teeth that are slightly uneven. Using her artistic skills, she will sculpt it into place, then we’ll use a special light to instantly harden and cure the material.

For most patients, their bonding treatment will be complete in just one simple appointment. You can walk in with smile flaws and walk out with a stunning, nearly perfect new smile!  

Balance Out Your Smile With Gum Reshaping

Many of our patients suffer from gums that are too prominent when they smile, resulting in what’s known as a “gummy smile.” Or maybe your teeth just look too short, creating an unattractive smile and making you self-conscious in public.

Either way, Dr. Juarez can use gentle laser treatment to get your smile into shape. Rather than an uncomfortable scalpel, our laser will instantly remove excess gum tissue and reseal the gums at the same time. There won’t be any incisions or stitches, plus your healing time will be minimal. Your treatment will create the proper tooth-to-gum ratio, giving you a beautiful and balanced smile that you’ll be comfortable showing off to everyone.

Be ready for all that summer has to offer with a smile enhancement from Houston Uptown Dentists! Call us today at 832-463-1021 to schedule your consultation. Put your smile into the hands of an expert dentist in Dr. Amanda Juarez!
