Cosmetic Dentist – University Park

Perfecting Smiles in University Park Dallas

If your smile isn’t 100% flawless, you’re in good company, but luckily for patients of Dallas Esthetics at University Park, your skilled cosmetic dentist and team are here to deliver a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to create a picture-perfect smile. When you’re ready to get started improving your smile’s appearance, give your trusted cosmetic dentist in University Park a call to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation. We’ll review all of your treatment options and help you to find the best solutions to create the smile of your dreams.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are crafted from a composite resin material that can be shaded to match the natural coloring of your tooth enamel. We often utilize this versatile restoration material to repair chips, cracks, and decayed parts of teeth. Our skilled cosmetic dentist can also use tooth-colored filling materials for esthetic treatments. Sometimes referred to as dental bonding, tooth-colored fillings can be used to repair cosmetic flaws or irregularities, including stains, chips, cracks, and gaps. These treatments can be completed in just one appointment, and they allow us to maintain the optimal amount of healthy tooth structure.

Professional Teeth Whitening Options

If you’ve been trying out every teeth whitening toothpaste, mouthwash, strip, and gel you can find in your local grocery store with no improvement, it’s time to call Dallas Esthetics. While these at-home whitening products promise dramatic improvements, they aren’t usually able to deliver on their promises. Professional teeth whitening options from our University Park cosmetic dentist offer predictable results with smiles up to ten shades brighter.

In-Office Teeth Whitening & Deep Bleaching

For fast results, we will likely recommend an in-office teeth whitening or deep bleaching plan. These services are simple, and we can usually deliver your desired results in about an hour. We begin by comparing your current tooth enamel shade to our color chart. Then, we isolate the teeth, using protective shields to cover the soft tissue. Next, we apply a coat of professional-grade activated teeth whitening gel. After about twenty minutes, we’ll remove the gel and compare your tooth coloring to our shade chart once again. We will repeat this process as many times as necessary to achieve your desired results. For patients who experience dental sensitivity following in-office teeth whitening and deep bleaching, we can also provide a quick five-minute fluoride treatment that can minimize this sensitivity.

At-Home Professional Teeth Whitening & Deep Bleaching

For those who have sensitive teeth or who want to brighten their smiles more gradually, a professional at-home teeth whitening or deep bleaching kit may be a better option. Our at-home whitening kits include custom-crafted application trays and professional-grade teeth whitening gel. You’ll place a small amount of whitening gel into the application trays and wear them for about 30 minutes at a time for 10 to 14 days. With these short, daily applications, you can still achieve the same results possible with in-office teeth whitening services. We can also provide take-home whitening kits to maintain the results you achieved with in-office teeth whitening. By taking a “whitening weekend” to apply whitening gel at-home for a few days every six to twelve months, you can keep the same brilliant white smile for years to come.

Porcelain Veneers

For those who want to make numerous changes to their smiles’ appearances without spending a great deal of time in the dental office or receiving numerous, complex treatments, porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution. Sometimes referred to as smile makeover veneers or instant orthodontics, porcelain veneers can correct or conceal any number of chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in the smile. In just two short trips to our dental office, you’ll have the picture-perfect smile of your dreams.

All-Ceramic Dental Restorations

All-ceramic dental restorations are often used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. However, we can also use these tooth-colored restorations to improve the appearance of your smile. A tooth-colored dental crown or fixed bridge restoration can seamlessly repair or replace lost tooth structures. We can also use all-ceramic restorations to conceal cosmetic flaws like irregularly shaped teeth, deep-set staining, and more.
