Cosmetic Dentistry in El Paso, Texas
Most of us want a beautiful, healthy smile. It helps to make us appear friendlier, more attractive, and more confident. The problem is that there are many issues that can arise that prevent us from achieving the smile we want, whether it’s teeth staining from our diet, oral injury, or damage to the teeth due to dental issues like gum disease. Walter L. Tippin DDS, Paul Apilado DDS, Inc, offers several services in cosmetic dentistry to help improve your smile in El Paso, TX.
This is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry because it’s a simple, noninvasive way to improve your smile. Teeth get yellowed or stained because of things we eat and drink, personal habits like smoking, and the natural aging process. A professional whitening treatment is safer and produces more dramatic results than an over-the-counter method. It is also faster, producing a smile several shades whiter in just one short visit.
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are fixed onto just the front of the teeth. If you have small imperfections in your teeth, such as chips or cracks, dental veneers can be applied to change their appearance. They can also be used to address issues with alignment and gaps in the teeth. Veneers are a popular choice in cosmetic dentistry because they are effective, affordable, and versatile.
You may be more familiar with dental crowns as a restorative dental treatment to treat damaged or decayed teeth, but they can also be used cosmetically to improve teeth with chips, cracks, or discoloration. They do require more of the tooth to be removed than with dental veneers, but they may be necessary if a tooth is badly damaged.
Not only are missing teeth inconvenient because they affect the way your smile looks and how you can use your teeth, but they can affect your oral health as well. We offer several options for replacing teeth, including bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
