Over the years, you’ve gotten used to hiding your teeth. You’ve perfected a way of smiling and talking that hides them because you are concerned people will see that they are crooked, yellow or damaged. We understand what you are going through, and you are not alone.
Thanks to the cosmetic dentistry offered at Oak Family Dentistry, you don’t have to worry about hiding your teeth anymore! Dr. Ryan Schmidgall is hands down, the best dentist in Arlington, TX. We can help you to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
What are some cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help my smile?
We can help you fix your teeth with teeth whitening, veneers, porcelain crowns, and other procedures that address worn down or broken teeth.
How does professional teeth whitening work?
If your teeth are dingy and discolored, this may be something that can change your teeth. All it takes is a visit to Dr. Schmidgall. During your regular exam when one of our skilled Dental Hygienists clean and polish your teeth, ask about our teeth whitening service.
The staff at Oak Family Dentistry may give you custom-made whitening trays to use at home. Or, in-office whitening may be performed. In this procedure, the dentist puts a powerful whitening gel on your teeth and then shines a special light on them to get the gel to start working. Either way you can expect to have a brighter smile in no time.
What other procedures can help my smile?
If the stains are just too bad to be removed by cleaning or whitening, Dr. Schmidgall may recommend veneers. They are custom-made “shells” that fit on your teeth. They are thin and color-matched to your teeth, so it can be difficult for people to tell you have them.
Veneers aren’t just for stained teeth, though. They are used to help fix teeth that are chipped, broken, worn down or misaligned. They can even be used to help teeth that have gaps between them.
Crowns are another option to fix damaged or decayed teeth. They can fix teeth out of alignment, or they can make teeth more aesthetically pleasing by giving them a new shape or length. A crown is simply a cap that is placed over the damaged tooth. Like veneers, crowns can be made in the same color as your other teeth so no one will even notice you have them. They’ll just notice how nice your teeth look!
Crowns aren’t just for cosmetic purposes, however. A crown can save a damaged tooth from having to be pulled.
If you are self conscious about your smile because you are missing teeth, Dr. Schmidgall can help with a dental implant. Implants are made of a titanium “root” that is firmly implanted into the jaw bone. A new, fake tooth is placed on top of the titanium implant.
Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. They not only make your smile more beautiful, but it is much easier to eat and talk when you aren’t missing teeth.
What does cosmetic dentistry cost?
The cost of your cosmetic dentistry depends on what procedures Dr. Schmidgall recommends. You should check with your insurance provider to see what procedures it covers. The staff at Oak Dentistry will be happy to go over the costs involved and discuss financing options with you.
