What is a perfect smile? Does it exhibit white enamel and teeth that are not crowded or gapped? Your dentist in The Woodlands, Dr. Johnny Taylor, would tell you that great oral health makes beautiful smiles possible. If you desire a smile transformation, Dr. Taylor and his staff can makeover your teeth and gums, ensuring their good health and creating the look you’ve always wanted.
Your Smile Makeover
Dr. Taylor begins your smile makeover with a complete oral exam and digital X-rays. He carefully considers your oral health needs and how you want your smile to change. While planning for your comfort and predictable results, your dentist selects treatments best suited to your teeth and gums.
Sometimes, a cosmetic makeover is as simple as teeth whitening. Other treatment plans combine both restorative and cosmetic dental services for a beautiful smile that is also strong and lasting. You and Dr. Taylor will agree on your care plan, and he will deliver a truly artistic, yet natural-looking, result.
Factors Dr. Taylor looks at are:
- Tooth length
- Enamel texture and color (including stains)
- Missing teeth
- Crowding and gaps
- Excess gum tissue (“gummy smile”)
- Metal fillings
- Deteriorating restorations such as crowns
Available Cosmetic Services
Here are the treatments that Dr. Taylor may offer you.
Dr. Taylor and his team offer state of the art Zoom! Whitening. After application of a powerful bleaching gel, you simply relax in the dental chair as stains lift right out of your tooth enamel. A special activation light accelerates the process. Teeth lighten by a full eight to 12 shades of color in just about an hour.
These tooth-shaped shells of dental-grade ceramic cover teeth marred by deep stains, chips, pits and other defects. While your teeth may not be damaged enough to need dental crowns, their appearance detracts from your otherwise healthy smile. Permanently bonded in place and colored to blend in with neighboring teeth, porcelain veneers strengthen and beautify smiles in just two visits.
If you dislike the look of your metal fillings, Dr. Taylor can replace them with seamless composite resin. Tooth-colored and requiring less enamel preparation than amalgam restorations, white fillings are cosmetically perfect and long-lasting.
Composite Resin Bonding
This one-visit treatment repairs small dental flaws such as gaps, pits, chips and cracks. Dr. Taylor uses a tooth-colored putty repair tooth enamel. He hardens the putty with a special curing light and buffs it to a shiny finish that lasts. Bonding often is combined with tooth recontouring, a gentle sanding procedure that resurfaces tooth enamel.
If you desire a straight, healthy smile, but wish to avoid the discomforts and appearance of metal braces, you may qualify for Invisalign clear aligners. These acrylic appliances are custom-crafted in pairs, moving teeth into favorable positions in as little as one year. Removable for special occasions, meals and oral hygiene, Invisalign aligners treat several kinds of orthodontic problems.
