Imagine the best gift you could give yourself this holiday season. Maybe it’s that coat you’ve been eying or a much-needed vacation with your family. But what about a smile makeover?
At Houston Uptown Dentists, we know that an investment in a beautiful smile is an investment in your health and your happiness! That’s why we offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry services — from teeth whitening to gum reshaping — to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. And we can combine several treatment options to create a smile makeover just for you!
Read on for some of the services we offer at our Houston, TX office. Then, if you’re ready to start the new year with a new smile and renewed sense of confidence, call us at 832-463-1021 to schedule an appointment.
If you’re looking to address a series of smile flaws in the same procedure, dental veneers are a great option.
Dental veneers are thin but tough shells made of porcelain or composite, custom-made to look like a healthier version of your natural teeth. They’re bonded onto your teeth to conceal dental imperfections such as:
- Minor cracks
- Stains or discoloration
- Worn teeth
- Small gaps between your teeth
At Houston Uptown Dental, we’re proud to offer all-porcelain dental veneers as well as Lumineers!
All-porcelain dental veneers are sort of the “classic” dental veneer. Although they require more preparation of the tooth before placement, porcelain dental veneers are popular for their stain-resistance and durability.
Lumineers are thinner than porcelain dental veneers. They’re about the thickness of a contact lens, so they require very little preparation of the teeth before placement.
Years of coffee- or tea-drinking can stain your teeth, giving them a dull or yellow appearance. The good news is that this discoloration can be corrected with professional teeth whitening treatments! In fact, teeth whitening is considered by some to be the most economical way to enhance your appearance!
At Houston Uptown Dentists, we offer both in-office whitening and custom at-home teeth whitening treatments. Our in-office treatments use the power of Zoom! professional whitening products to give you a brilliantly brighter smile in just one visit. Clinical trials have shown that this procedure can whiten your teeth up to eight shades!
For those who prefer the convenience of over-the-counter whitening gels and strips, we can also custom-make an at-home whitening treatment. It’s more effective than anything you’ll find in the store!
It’s never too late to get a straighter smile! And if you’re worried about getting traditional metal braces for fear it’ll distract from your smile, we have two great short-term orthodontic options to choose from.
- Invisalign® is an incredibly discreet way to address mild to complex teeth and bite misalignment issues. With this treatment, we’ll give you a series of custom-made plastic aligners that you’ll wear roughly 20 to 22 hours a day. Every week or so, you’ll swap your aligner for the next one in the series. It’s that easy! Plus, the plastic aligners are virtually invisible, so your friends and colleagues may not even realize you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment!
- Six Month Smiles® is a fast and convenient way to straighten your teeth. This orthodontic solution uses clear brackets to gently align your teeth. On average, treatment only takes six months!
Our caring team of dental professionals can help you determine which option is best for you!
“Gummy Smile” Treatment
When you smile, do you see more of your gums than your teeth? If a “gummy smile” is making you self-conscious, you should consider a gum reshaping treatment. We’ll gently contour your gums to reveal more of your teeth and create a more even gumline.
We do this using a state-of-the-art dental laser. This may sound intimidating, but this technology actually allows for a more precise and more comfortable treatment! Still, if you’re nervous about gum reshaping treatment, we understand. We also offer dental sedation options to minimize pain and stress during your procedure.
When your teeth and your gums are exactly as you envisioned, you can also address the fine lines and wrinkles surrounding your smile as part of your smile makeover!
At Houston Uptown Dentists, we’ll smooth and tighten the skin around your mouth to truly turn back the clock on your smile. This procedure will leave you looking younger and feeling more confident!
We also offer Liplase™, which can enhance and plump your lips without injections. It’s a painless way to get the pout you’ve always wanted without stepping foot in a plastic surgeon’s office.
