Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry involves procedures that enhance or improve the appearance of your smile by concealing flaws and strengthening teeth. Common procedures that are considered cosmetic in nature include professional teeth whitening, white restorations like dental crowns and fillings, and porcelain veneers. 

Porcelain veneers at our Nassau Bay dental office are cosmetic enhancements that conceal all types of imperfections. Razor thin slices of high-quality porcelain are customized to sit on the front surfaces of your teeth. We choose dental porcelain for its light-reflecting properties and because it is available in various hues of white, just like natural teeth.

When bonded to the front of your teeth, veneers hide flaws like stains, chips, spacing issues, and jagged edges. By placing dental veneers on several teeth, we can create the illusion of a healthy, flawless smile.

Dr. Gonzalez uses cosmetic treatments like veneers, dental bonding, teeth whitening, and dental crowns to address a single smile flaw or create a total smile makeover. If you’re thinking about a cosmetic change, you owe it to yourself to call Artistic Smiles. Dr. Gonzalez would love to meet with you to explain how you can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry at our Nassau Bay dental office.

If you have sensitive teeth, we strongly encourage you to avoid using over-the-counter whitening toothpaste, strips, and rinses. The formulation of these products might be unstable or might contain strong abrasives. Unstable whitening formulas and abrasives can exacerbate tooth sensitivity and even cause permanent damage.

Professional teeth whitening is the safest option for those with sensitive teeth because the formulas will not contribute to long-term tooth discomfort. Prescription whitening products contain stable and effective ingredients that do not require abrasives to remove stains.

Please call Artistic Smiles at (281) 316-8900 to arrange a teeth whitening appointment to get started.
