Please read on to learn more about the care we can provide for you and your family.
The Prosthodontist Difference
Prosthodontists are specially trained to restore and replace teeth. After completing four years of dental school, they go on to complete an additional three years of training in a graduate program accredited by the American Dental Association. With this added experience, a prosthodontist is often the go-to dentist for a number of specialty cases.
At Dallas Esthetics, we see many patients who need to replace one or more missing teeth, as well as those who are tired of wearing removable dentures. Dental implants provide both the look of natural teeth as well as the security. An implant is comprised of a small titanium post that an oral surgeon positions in your jawbone. As you heal, the post and bone fuse together, forming a solid foundation for a porcelain crown or an implant-retained denture.
Cosmetic Dentistry at Dallas Esthetics
To help our patients have smiles that are as attractive as possible, we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments. These include:
- In-office teeth whitening for the fastest results
- At-home teeth whitening to create a more beautiful smile in the comfort and convenience of home
- Tooth-colored fillings to repair cavities
- Porcelain veneers to create an entirely new smile that covers your own flawed smile
- All-ceramic restorations to rebuild severely decayed or damaged teeth
Prosthodontists are also dentists, so you can count on us for all of the general dentistry treatments you need for your family. We offer dental cleanings and exams, oral cancer screenings and gum disease therapy to help you maintain your smile and your oral health.
No matter what type of dental procedure you need, we have the kind of sedation dentistry necessary to help you overcome any level of anxiety or fear. Nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas, will leave you feeling calm and worry-free. Alternatively, IV sedation administered by an anesthesiologist provides a deeper level of relaxation.
