Happy holidays Plano! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of the Plano Smile Studio. In our last post, we suggested purchasing a professional teeth whitening treatment for your loved ones this holiday season. Several patients have called our office to enquire about other treatments which might make good gifts from our Plano cosmetic dental clinic.

We love the idea of our patients helping their loved ones achieve a brand new smile through cosmetic dentistry work in Plano, TX. So in today’s post, we’re going to provide more information about a couple of cosmetic dentistry procedures available at our comfortable and modern office. Cosmetic dentistry can truly change someone’s life by reshaping their smile; giving them higher self-esteem and self-confidence in the workplace and their daily life.

At our Plano cosmetic dental clinic, we’ve helped countless patients with porcelain veneers and Invisalign. In today’s post of our dental health blog, we’re going to give you an overview of these two wonder cosmetic dental treatments and how they can benefit your loved ones.

Reshape a Smile with Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin but durable shell which we can bonded onto the enamel of your loved one’s teeth. Veneers are one of the best tools in all of cosmetic dentistry because they are are quick and painless to apply. We reduce a small amount of enamel from their teeth then apply the veneers. Our veneers are a great way to mask discolored teeth which won’t respond to teeth whitening, close gaps between teeth without orthodontic treatments, or cover chipped or broken teeth. At our Plano cosmetic dental clinic, we offer Empress veneers. Empress veneers are the strongest and most durable veneers available; clinical trials have shown them to be nearly twice as durable as conventional porcelain veneers.

Veneers are used to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Porcelain reflects light in the same way as your normal teeth, so no one will know your loved one had cosmetic dental work performed. At our Plano cosmetic dental clinic we can apply one veneer to cover a chipped or broken tooth. Or we can apply a set of veneers to completely reshape and refresh a smile. Your loved one can even choose the shade of white their veneers will be!

Straighten Crooked Teeth with Invisalign

We also proud to offer Invisalign orthodontics at our Plano cosmetic dental clinic. Does your loved one have crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth? University research has shown that as much as 25% of our country’s adult population would benefit from orthodontic treatment. Crooked teeth don’t just look bad, they also increase a person’s risk for gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health problems. Many adults are hesitant to commit to adult braces because of their appearance. It would feel awkward or even embarrassing to walk into the workplace or a social gathering with a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign in Plano, TX, is a more discreet and comfortable option for your loved one to straighten their teeth.

Invisalign uses clear aligners which are made out of thin but durable plastic. These aligners will gently reposition their teeth and straighten crooked teeth. Your loved one wears each aligner for about two weeks, then graduates onto another aligner. Although Invisalign orthodontics uses an incremental approach, it can actually deliver amazing results very quickly. Most adult patients only have to undergo treatment with Invisalign for about a year. Invisalign in Plano, TX, is a much faster option than traditional adult braces which often require two or more years to be effective.

Invisalign will also be a more convenient treatment for your loved ones. Traditional metal braces limit the types of foods a patient can eat. Many foods can get stuck in the wires, or even damage the brackets. That can lead to painful orthodontist appointments and increase their risk of tooth decay. Invisalign aligners are removable; this major difference will make orthodontic treatment much more enjoyable for your loved one. When it’s time for them to eat, they simply take out the aligner and enjoy whatever foods their heart desires. It’s also possible for them to remove their aligners before a special event, such as a wedding. Invisalign can fit into the lifestyle of even the busiest adult!
