Cosmetic Dentistry in University Park
Would you smile more if you had straighter, whiter teeth? The answer to that question, for most patients, is “Absolutely!” That’s why so many patients look for cosmetic care. Patients with vibrant, stunning smiles are perceived as friendlier, more attractive, and more confident. Our goal, as a University Park, Dallas dental office committed to esthetics, is to help patients make their smile dreams come true.
Creating beautiful results begins with a consultation visit during which Dr. Higginbottom, Dr. Derksen, or Dr. Hildebrand carefully assess teeth as they are, and talk to you about your goals and the services you have in mind. Once we have a complete picture of your needs and goals, we create a comprehensive plan for helping you achieve your goals.
We offer a range of great cosmetic services to patients from the Park Cities and its surrounding areas. Those services include:
Previously, dentists relied on metal fillings (known as amalgam fillings) to treat cavities. Today, tooth-colored fillings are standard. When you compare the restorative and cosmetic benefits to amalgam fillings, there’s simply no contest. Tooth-colored fillings are more supportive than metal fillings, and can be shaded to blend in with your smile’s natural color.

Professional Teeth Whitening
Tooth stains have a variety of causes, but in most cases, they’re caused by the foods and drinks we consume. Whitening/Bleaching is designed to minimize stains or reverse the staining process for a whiter, more attractive smile.
In-Office Teeth Whitening/Bleaching
At Dallas Esthetics, our In-office teeth whitening process couldn’t be more convenient. In just one visit, we brighten your smile by multiple shades which is far better than anything achievable with whitening products from your local pharmacy or grocery store. Using our advanced technology, we can whiten your smile by as much as 10 shades, removing years of yellowing and unsightly staining.
At-Home Teeth Whitening/Bleaching
If you’re interested in whitening your smile in the comfort of your home, let us talk to you about at-home whitening. This option uses custom whitening trays and a supply of professional whitener to achieve results that are comparable to in-office whitening. At-home whitening can also be used to extend the effects of your whiter smile following in-office whitening.
For patients who want to create a smile that looks whiter and straighter, porcelain veneers can help. This service is one of the leading cosmetic dental treatments in part because of the results and because treatment can be completed in two convenient appointments.
Your treatment begins with a consultation during which Dr. Higginbottom, Dr. Derksen, or Dr. Hildebrand assess your needs and design veneers to complement your smile and overall appearance. The next step is for us to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth so veneers lay flat when they’re placed. Then, we affix a set of temporary veneers to your teeth to protect them until your permanent veneers are ready.
Once our lab has finished crafting your veneers, you return to our office to have your temporaries removed and your permanent veneers placed. When we’re finished with your veneers procedure, you can leave our office with a stunning, confident smile.
All-Ceramic Dental Restorations
With every cosmetic service, our goal is to provide you with the most natural-looking results possible. That’s why we’re committed to offering all-ceramic restorations. Dental restorations can be made from a variety of materials, but all-ceramic restorations come the closest to resembling a natural tooth. Would you like to learn more about restoring one or more of your teeth with an all-ceramic restoration? We would be happy to answer your questions during a special consultation.
