A stunning smile can be your best asset, socially, romantically, and professionally. It can make you appear more attractive, friendlier, kinder, and even more intelligent, according to a Beall Research & Training study. Most important of all, it can boost your confidence and help you feel great about yourself. If you aren’t happy with what you see in the mirror, Dr. Michael Tiplea of Allen Dental Studio in Allen, TX can change that with artisan cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain veneers – yes, you can afford a Hollywood smile
This is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, sometimes called a single-procedure smile makeover. It can change virtually anything about the appearance of your smile, yet there is very little alteration to your teeth. Ultra-thin layers of porcelain are bonded to the fronts of teeth, completely covering the visible surfaces.
The benefit of porcelain veneers is a brand-new smile, customized to your vision of ideal beauty, which can last for many years. The problem, for many patients, is the cost. A full set of premium porcelain veneers created by a top-rated dental laboratory might be beyond your budget. The more economical alternative is composite veneers, which are very affordable and completed in just one visit. The problem is that composite is not as durable as porcelain. Our patients have a unique third option that offers the best of both.
Transitional veneers allow you to see your dream smile come true in just three hours, with a set of customized composite veneers. Gradually, they will be replaced with long-lasting porcelain veneers, one tooth at a time. You and your budget can set the schedule.
A dazzling smile is never out of reach, no matter how severe your dental problems may be. Full mouth restoration, also known as full mouth rejuvenation or a smile makeover, is a customized treatment plan that combines multiple cosmetic procedures to address all your concerns.
This may include:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers, crowns, or other restorations
- Tooth colored fillings
- Dental implants
- TMJ treatment, gum surgery, or other advanced procedures
The appearance of your smile is affected by more than just your teeth. Gums form the frame around your pearly whites.
Overgrowth of gum tissue make teeth appear too short, while an uneven gumline results in an asymmetrical or uneven appearance. Gum recontouring is a fast and straightforward laser procedure that removes overgrowth and sculpts the gumline.
Similar to gum recontouring, this is a laser surgery that removes excess tissue. However, crown lengthening is typically performed in preparation for placement of a restoration. For example, if a tooth is broken off near the gumline, it can be restored with a porcelain dental crown. Yet, there might not be enough exposed tooth structure to attach a crown. In that case, a bit of gum tissue is removed, exposing more of the tooth.
One of the most versatile smile enhancement options, dental bonding can repair chips, cover blemishes, improve shape, and close spaces between teeth. Dr. Tiplea uses a putty-like resin material, which is applied directly to the surface of the tooth. He shapes and sculpts it, then hardens it with a special light. Last, the tooth is polished to a beautiful sheen. The process takes just one appointment, and the results are beautifully natural looking.
Smooth and symmetrical teeth are the foundation of a lovely smile. Even if you don’t have major cosmetic issues, a few imperfections, chips, or jagged edges can ruin the appearance of your smile. Moreover, these sharp spots abrade soft tissue especially if you have trouble keeping your tongue away from the chipped area. Dr. Tiplea uses a precision burr and delicate technique to polish away all those little sharp spots and irregularities.
If you are seeking your brightest smile, you may be a bit overwhelmed by the options. There are countless teeth whitening brands, both over the counter and professional grade. You might wonder if they are all basically the same. The answer is, no! One system, KöR Deep Bleaching, stands apart from the crowd for many reasons.
