Many cosmetic dentistry treatments offer restorative benefits in addition to their cosmetic aspects. Improving the appearance of your smile can make it easier to eat and speak properly and comfortably, which can improve your overall quality of life. This illustrates the true definition of “cosmetic” dentistry. Talk to your dentist to see if you are a good candidate for any of these procedures!
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the surface of the teeth. They are used to mask a variety of imperfections, including stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignments. The dentist will customize the veneer shape to the tooth so that it blends in with your smile for a beautiful and natural look.
Once the dentist has prepared your teeth for the veneers, he will take a mold of your teeth and send it to the laboratory that will create your veneers. A temporary veneer will be placed on your prepared tooth to protect it while the permanent veneer is being made. When your permanent veneers are ready, they will be placed onto your teeth to give you a brand-new smile!
This is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures that our dentist in Katy, TX, can perform to improve the look of your teeth and your smile. If you have what you believe are discolored teeth or yellow teeth, then let’s find out if you are a candidate for teeth whitening treatment at our practice!
Our dentist in Katy, TX, offers both at-home whitening kits and professional strength whitening treatments at his cosmetic dentistry practice. The at-home kit consists of custom-fitted trays filled with professional strength whitening gel that can be sent home with the patient to use whenever it is convenient for them.

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that has an affordable cost and quick turnaround. With dental bonding, a tooth-colored material is applied to your tooth’s surface for immediate improvement. The material can be shaped and polished so that it blends in with your smile. Dental bonding is ideal for small cosmetic fixes such as gaps between teeth or chipped teeth. The treatment can also be used to conceal stains that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatments. To complete your procedure, our dentist in Katy, TX, will use a curing light to harden the material. This can take just a couple of minutes per tooth. Once it’s ready, you’ll be free to go about your day!
A dental bridge can alter the look and feel of your smile by filling in gaps in your teeth. It can also help to keep the surrounding teeth and jaw healthy by preventing them from shifting out of place when the patient is missing a tooth or multiple teeth.
