Happy new year! 2017 is behind us and we’re at the start of a brand-new year. This is a great time to pause, reassess, and make changes for the better.
Look in the mirror. Is there anything you don’t like about your smile? It could be something minor, like staining from a years-long coffee habit. It could be something that you’ve lived with your entire life, like crooked or misaligned teeth. Perhaps you even have multiple complaints about your teeth and gums — and don’t even know how to start correcting them.
At Davenport Dental Group, we offer a full menu of cosmetic dental procedures. We have the fix for all types of flaws and a range of budgets. One of our skilled doctors will give you a thorough examination, discuss your goals, and help you decide which technique will best fit your situation. We can even help you design a smile makeover of multiple cosmetic procedures.
It’s time. Make 2018 the year you debut your dream smile. Call Davenport Dental Group for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. We have two locations in Laredo, TX: Junction Drive (956-242-6745) and Winfield (956-517-2695).
Lots of factors can take a toll on the color of your teeth: smoking, coffee or tea, dark-colored foods, and just, well, daily life. Lifting those stains off your dark and dingy teeth will make you look more vibrant and take years off your appearance.
If you’ve ever tried drugstore whitening kits, you may have found that they just don’t work well. That’s because the whitening solution they use contains much less active ingredient than professional-grade products. Plus the trays are not custom made, so they fit poorly and may result in uneven coverage.
At Davenport Dental Group, we use the highly effective Zoom professional whitening products. For your convenience we offer both in-office and take-home options.
If you’re in a rush for your whiter, brighter teeth, our in-office system will give you the immediate results you want. It will lighten your teeth up to eight shades in under an hour using four applications of a powerful, light-activated whitening solution.
Our take-home treatment will give you equally dazzling results, but you’ll bring the gel and custom-made whitening trays home with you, where you will wear them for a prescribed amount of time each day. Your brilliant white smile will emerge over the course of a few weeks.
If your teeth have chips, stains, gaps, and even minor cosmetic alignment problems, you may be a candidate for tooth bonding. This procedure addresses many of the same issues as veneers, but is much simpler and less expensive.
We take a composite resin material perfectly matched to your enamel color and apply it to your tooth. We sculpt the putty-like substance, harden it with a special light, then refine the shape and polish it so it’s indistinguishable from your real tooth. Anesthesia is generally not required, and the process is done in just one office visit.
Even subtle changes can make a big difference in the appearance of your smile. Teeth contouring is a very simple procedure that can alter the shape or length of a tooth, smooth rough edges, eliminate slight overlapping, and remove minor blemishes.
The procedure involves removing small amounts of enamel from your tooth to achieve the desired results. It is painless, as we remove just the enamel, or outer layer, of the tooth. And it is fast, generally requiring just one office visit.
If you want a smile that’s nothing less than showstopping, you want veneers. These thin, tooth-colored shells cover the fronts of your teeth and hide chips, stains, gaps, and other blemishes. At Davenport Dental Group, we offer traditional porcelain veneers, minimal prep veneers, and prepless veneers, which don’t require removal of enamel and are therefore reversible.
Straighten your smile without metal braces! ClearCorrect uses a series of clear plastic aligners to correct crooked, misaligned, and oddly spaced teeth. The aligners are removable for easy eating and cleaning. When you wear them, they are practically invisible on the teeth. Plus, they are more comfortable than traditional braces (no tightening required!) and generally work their magic in a shorter period of time.
