Nearly everyone has small imperfections in their smile that they would like to correct. With all of the advanced dental procedures that are available today, there is a treatment to address any and all of your dental concerns. Downtown Dentists , are talented Houston cosmetic dentists, they are able to perform a multitude of dental procedures that can be performed on their own or together. Our patients in Houston can leave our offices with a total smile makeover.

Teeth Whitening

A quick way to improve your smile is to improve the color of your teeth. We offer Zoom!® teeth whitening at our downtown practice. This treatment combines a bleaching gel along with exposure to a dental light that activates the gel. With this method we are able to remove stains and brighten teeth by up to 10 shades. The best part is, treatment can be completed in just under an hour. If this is too much of a time commitment or you prefer to whiten the teeth more gradually, we also offer a take home kit.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is another treatment that can drastically improve a patient’s smile. Invisalign® is a treatment geared toward straightening a crooked smile or correcting a misaligned bite. Most of our patients would rather use Invisalign® than wear metal braces because they Invisalign® offers a more attractive look. When Invisalign® trays are being worn, they are barely even noticeable. They also feel more comfortable and offer patients freedom that they do not get from braces. This is because the aligners can be removed when a patient eats so they do not have to worry about any food restrictions.

Tooth-colored Fillings

Fillings are a common treatment for dental cavities. Most of us received metal fillings when we were kids because that was the only option available. Now tooth-colored fillings are a popular option. They can be used on new cavities or they can replace silver fillings that were placed in the past. Tooth-colored fillings allow dentists to treat dental cavities without an obvious silver restoration that tells the whole world the patient had tooth decay.

Porcelain Veneers

For our patients in Houston, porcelain veneers are often used when a smile makeover is desired. That is because veneers are such a versatile treatment option. They can correct a wide variety of cosmetic flaws to leave patients with a vastly improved smile. Veneers are placed on the surface of the tooth. They can make teeth appear even in size, straighter, and brighter. An added benefit is the fact that these results can be achieved within just a few dental appointments.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can address many of the same cosmetic flaws as porcelain veneers. This is a cheaper treatment option and is usually completed in one dental appointment. A tinted resin is bonded to the teeth to improve color, cover cracks or fractures, or make the teeth appear more even. Gaps can also be filled with this resin. Dental bonding is one of the quickest ways to eliminate cosmetic flaws.
