Zoom! ® In-Office and At-Home Teeth Whitening
Have you tried any of those do-it-yourself whitening gels, trays, strips, or other inconvenient and ineffective products? If you have, you probably disliked the hassle, and weren’t satisfied with the results. We believe that professional smile makeovers with the Zoom!® teeth whitening system is a better way to get the bright, white smile that you want. This simple, painless process takes only about an hour, and can make your teeth up to ten shades whiter. In combination with at-home whitening trays, you will get a result that lasts. Zoom!® combines powerful peroxide action with a special activation light to deliver stunning results even on stubborn stains from coffee, wine, or tobacco.
If you have a hectic lifestyle and prefer to experience the Zoom® teeth whitening system at home on your own schedule, we even offer the Zoom!® Take-Home System. Unlike over-the-counter products, Zoom!® Take-Home offers dramatic whitening in just three nights.
From the covers of magazines to people you see on the street, straight, white teeth seem to be everywhere. So what’s the secret to all of these beautiful smiles? Porcelain veneers! Veneers are custom-made shells of super-fine porcelain that are affixed to the exterior of your natural teeth. They can do everything from close gaps and hide misaligned teeth to whiten and brighten your smile.
Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, too – resistant to stains, chips, and everyday wear. If you want to treat yourself to the ultimate smile solution, consider porcelain veneers. The team at Downtown Dentists have a wealth of experience creating gorgeous smiles with veneers!
In the past, people with crooked teeth had only two choices: live with them, or endure a long battle with unattractive, uncomfortable metal braces. Today there’s a better way to get that straight, even smile you want… without anyone having to know. Invisalign® is the straightening system that you’ve heard so much about. At our cosmetic dentistry practice in Houston, we proudly offer the Invisalign® system to our patients not only because it works, but because our patients like it so much!
Using a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your teeth, Invisalign® gradually pulls your teeth into a straighter, more attractive position. Every couple of weeks, you switch to the next aligner, and over several months to about a year, your new smile will emerge. The aligners are almost completely invisible, do not interfere with speaking, and can easily be removed while you eat or clean your teeth. They are particularly appealing to adults who want a more discreet solution than the traditional “metal mouth” set of braces.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of one or more teeth, bonding can help make your smile more attractive. During the bonding procedure, durable dental resin is tinted to perfectly match your natural tooth color, and is then permanently bonded to the tooth. The advantage of this material is that it can be shaped and polished to create a tooth surface that appears natural, smooth, and similar to your other teeth. Through dental bonding, you can attain an attractive smile that is also durable and easy to maintain. Bonding can be used on front teeth and back teeth, and is faster and more affordable than porcelain veneers.
