Houston Uptown Dentists would be glad to help you put your new smile into place. Call us today at 832-463-1021 to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation.

We understand how important it is to create good first impressions on others, so we offer you many ways to spruce up your smile. At your consultation, we’ll cover all your options in detail, however below are a few of our more popular treatments.

Straighten Your Teeth & Put Some Glam Into Your Smile

At Houston Uptown Dentists, we offer you two great ways to straighten your crooked teeth and improve the look of your smile. We’ll help you decide which one will work best for your situation and needs.

Our quickest orthodontic option is Six Month Smiles. Just as the name implies, this teeth-straightening method can give you a new smile in just a few months, not years.

The premise is simple – Six Month Smiles focuses treatment on just the teeth that show when you smile. If you don’t have bite issues or severely crooked teeth, then it is often not necessary to treat all your teeth with orthodontics.

Plus, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, so your treatment will be as discreet as possible. If you begin now, you could complete your treatment in time for those holiday parties!

If Six Month Smiles won’t work for you, then you may be a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This innovative orthodontic method uses clear plastic teeth aligners rather than metal brackets and wires. They are very comfortable and others will barely notice you’re wearing them, if at all.

Although not as fast as Six Month Smiles, you could still complete your Invisalign treatment in months rather than years.

Cover Up Smile Flaws With Dental Veneers

You owe it to yourself to find out more about dental veneers if you have a damaged or worn-looking smile. Veneers are thin wafers of tooth-colored material – resembling a fingernail – that Dr. Juarez will bond to the front of your teeth to make them beautiful and strong.

Veneers are great for concealing smile flaws like chips, cracks, gaps, deep stains, worn teeth, and misshapen teeth. We offer standard porcelain veneers as well as the Lumineers line of veneers.

We normally have to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for standard veneers. Lumineers, on the other hand, are extremely thin so we can often place them without modifying your teeth at all.

We’ll take precise impressions of your teeth so that our lab partner can craft your new veneers to specifications. Then you’ll return to our office and Dr. Juarez will place them on the front sides of your damaged teeth. You’ll have a beautiful new smile you can take pride in showing off at any holiday party or get-together!

Brighten Your Dull Smile With Teeth Whitening

Nothing whispers success quite like a beautiful white smile! If you’re smile isn’t as bright as you’d like, you’ll have a choice of several teeth whitening options at Houston Uptown Dentists. For fastest results – and the most dramatic smile impact – choose in-office treatment.

We offer Zoom whitening that uses a concentrated whitening agent along with a special laser that enhances the results. We also offer treatment using the TouchWhite laser system. This laser is used to activate a water-based whitening gel, giving you quick, safe results that store-bought whitening kits can’t offer.

If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, we’ll make custom trays for you to use along with a concentrated gel that can brighten your teeth in a matter of days. You can use the treatment while reading, watching TV, or even just lounging around in the PJs.

Plus, you can get “whitening for life” for at-home use if you come in twice a year for your regular checkups. Ask one of our team members for details.

Isn’t it time you got started on your holiday smile now? Call us today at 832-463-1021 to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation.
