When undergoing restorative care, patients shouldn’t have to choose between an option that benefits their oral health and an option that helps them retain a natural appearance. Metal-free restorations provide the best of both worlds here at Smile Design Dental! Dr. Nguyen offers crowns, inlays, onlays, and more that are crafted from high-quality ceramic materials.
Dental ceramic possesses the same translucent qualities as your natural enamel, allowing it to seamlessly blend in with the patient’s smile once placed. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, metal-free restorations are also more comfortable and more biocompatible – even patients with allergies to common dental materials can enjoy them without any concerns, and sensitivity caused by reactions to temperature changes is greatly reduced.
Direct bonding is an excellent cosmetic solution for patients who are in need of treatment for relatively minor dental flaws, such as:
- Dental Stains
- Misshapen/Misaligned Tooth Structure
- Small Gaps Between Teeth
At Smile Design Dental, this procedure is quick and comfortable; in most cases, Dr. Nguyen can complete your improvements in just one appointment. Our team will apply the high-quality composite resin material to the affected tooth and then sculpt it into a pleasing addition that corrects the issue you’re concerned with. After it’s hardened in place with a special curing light, patients will be able to enjoy their newly corrected smile with full confidence!
Have your teeth become darker in color or noticeably stained over time? This lackluster look doesn’t have to be permanent. Our Plano practice offers teeth whitening options for patients in need of a dazzling smile makeover they can show off with pride.
If you’re wanting fast, dramatic results, our in-office service with Opalescence® Boost may be the best option. This high-grade whitening gel can improve the color of your enamel by several shades in less than an hour – you’ll be able to walk out that same day with a noticeably improved appearance! Alternatively, Opalescence take-home kits are available both for touch-ups and more gradual whitening on your own schedule and in the comfort of your home.
Sometimes, the reason a smile doesn’t look its best isn’t the teeth – it’s the gums. An excess amount of gum tissue (or tissue that’s significantly uneven) can result in an overly “gummy” smile with teeth that appear strangely short. Thankfully, Dr. Nguyen can correct this problem with a crown lengthening procedure. Our team will precisely remove tissue and contour your natural gum line in order to reveal the healthy tooth structure hidden underneath in a symmetrical, pleasing fashion.
In addition to the cosmetic benefits, crown lengthening may also be recommended if the patient is in need of a restorative procedure. If a tooth is experiencing severe decay or has broken beneath the gum line, we’ll need to reveal enough remaining dental structure to support a custom-made restoration.
