We all want a bright, dazzling smile. Not only does a picture-perfect smile help you look great, but it also helps you feel great and improves self-confidence. At South Austin Dental Clinic, we’re proud to offer a wide variety of cosmetic dental services to help you build the perfect smile makeover.
We can dramatically brighten and whiten your smile in just one office visit. Using a safe but strong gel-based bleaching agent, our in-office whitening procedures deliver dramatic results in less than an hour. If you’d like to whiten in the comfort of your own home, we can prescribe you a home whitening kit to use over one to two weeks for similar results.
Veneers are an excellent method of addressing a wide variety of cosmetic issues, including tooth discoloration, minor cracks and chips, gaps and spacing problems, minor tooth reshaping, and more. Applying veneers takes several office visits, and involves an ultra-thin layer of porcelain that will be applied to your teeth to achieve your exact shade and shaping goals.
Gone are the days when realigning teeth required the unsightly brackets and wires of traditional braces. Today, invisible braces allow patients to straighten their teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners that are switched out every several weeks to gradually straighten teeth. Best of all, they don’t come with dietary or cleaning restrictions, and they’re simply removed for meals and daily oral hygiene.
Sometimes, dental wear-and-tear, infections, cracks, or procedures like root canals can necessitate a crown. Crowns can restore the full look and feel of a tooth to its original strength and appearance, and are an excellent way to save a tooth in many cases where the tooth is at risk. Today, crowns can be indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and are strong and durable restorative solutions.
One of the simplest and most affordable methods of replacing missing teeth is a dental bridge. For one or more missing teeth, bridges can immediately restore your smile, as well as improve speech and the restore the ability to eat the foods you love. Bridges involve crowning “anchor teeth” on either side of the gap, which are connected to the new, artificial teeth.
Aside from bridges, another method we can use to restore missing teeth is dentures. Dentures are used to replace either some or all teeth on both the top and bottom jaws. There are multiple types of dentures, and we’ll work with you to find out which is the right option for you.
Irregularly-shaped gums that appear either too high up or too low can affect the look of your smile, as can irregularly-shaped teeth. Both these can be addressed with in-office procedures to achieve the look and shape of both your teeth and gums for that perfect smile.
It’s amazing how a brand new smile can enhance your attitude and your confidence. If you’re looking for a cosmetic dentist in Austin to address virtually any aspect of your smile, set up a consultation and we’ll work with you to develop a plan to achieve your goals.
