Wow Them With A Brilliantly White Smile
One of the most cost-effective ways to enhance your appearance is to remove the dental stains that have been weighing down your smile. At Houston Uptown Dentists, we can restore your smile to a brilliant white within minutes with instant laser teeth whitening! Dr. Juarez and Dr. Lindskog are always looking for exciting new treatments to offer patients, so we’re proud to offer this whitening solution, and we think it’s perfect for busy brides-to-be (and grooms-to-be, too!) — particularly if you have sensitive teeth.
We use a laser whitening device, called the TouchWhite laser, paired with a water-based whitening gel. The gentle laser activates the gel, and within 20 seconds, you’ll see a drastic improvement in the color of your a stained tooth.
Of course, we also offer some of the more traditional teeth whitening treatments as well. Our in-office teeth whitening treatment using Zoom! products can help you achieve a brilliant smile in about an hour. We also offer custom-made, at-home whitening treatments that are great for people who want the convenience of over-the-counter teeth whitening strips and gels but want something that’s more comfortable and more effective. These at-home trays are also a good option for patients who opt for an in-office treatment and want to be able to touch up their smiles before a big event — like a wedding, perhaps!
Straighten Your Smile With Short-Term Orthodontics
We know what you’re thinking: Braces before my wedding? But hear us out. Recent advances in orthodontics mean that you can get a straighter smile faster than ever before — and even without brackets and wires! We can get you started on one of two innovative orthodontic solutions so you can have a straighter smile on the big day and beyond.
Invisalign® uses plastic aligners that are virtually invisible and completely removable to encourage gradual movement of your teeth in an average of 12 months. Even if your wedding is within the next year, you can simply take your aligner out for the wedding and still enjoy a smile that’s straighter than it is today.
We also offer Six Month Smiles, which use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to correct crooked teeth in an average of just six months.
And with both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, we can further reduce your treatment time with the help of Propel accelerated orthodontics!
Restore Youthful Skin And Full Lips
Your teeth make up a large portion of your smile, but that’s not all there is! We want to make sure that if your teeth look great, your mouth and lips look great too.
At Houston Uptown Dentists, we’re able to smooth skin and eliminate laugh and smile lines quickly and comfortably — without any injections! With Smoothlase™, Dr. Juarez or Dr. Lindskog will guide a gentle soft tissue laser along the inside of your cheek, which stimulates collagen growth in the skin. The result is a more youthful-looking face!
We can also use the same state-of-the-art technology for a treatment called Liplase™, which smooths and plumps your lips in a way that’s non-invasive.
Conceal Your Dental Insecurities
If you have a single problem tooth — or multiple teeth that are giving you grief — dental veneers can help you cover up what bothers you. We offer two different kinds of dental veneers: classic all-porcelain and popular, ultra-thin Lumineers®. Veneers are thin coverings made to look like the front-facing parts of your natural teeth, but better! We’ll work with you to design a veneer that looks natural and helps you achieve your ideal smile.
Dental veneers are ideal for concealing dental flaws, such as:
- Misshapen teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Minor misalignment issues
- Chips or minor cracks
Dr. Juarez and Dr. Lindskog can help you determine whether dental veneers are right for you, and what type of veneer best fits your needs.
Address Minor Smile Flaws
The smallest details — like rough surfaces, minor chips, or slight irregularities in shape — can make or break your smile. And while many people opt for dental veneers to correct these more minor imperfections, a quick and affordable treatment called dental bonding can in many cases get you the results you’re looking for.
Dental bonding involves concealing dental flaws with a small amount of tooth-colored resin. Once it’s bonded to your teeth, it’s effective at fixing minor cosmetic issues. It’s important to note, however, that the results won’t be as stain-resistant or long-lasting as you might experience with dental veneers. We can help you determine which treatment option is best for your individual case!
Look And Feel Your Best
Your wedding marks the first day of many happy days in your new relationship. In the coming years, there will be many things to smile about — from anniversaries, milestone accomplishments, to the births of children — and you should be able to feel confident about your smile every step of the way.
