Why should I choose professional teeth whitening?
If you’ve been looking for effective teeth whitening, you know there’s an overwhelming variety of over-the-counter products available. But it’s good to remember that you get what you pay for, and that’s especially true for teeth whitening. Lots of people spend money buying all sorts of products only to be disappointed by the results and the discomfort of irritated gums.
Trained dental professionals like our doctors are able to prescribe a much higher concentration of whitening agent than you can purchase at your drugstore. You can be confident that the results will not only be spectacular but we also carefully adjust the concentration to eliminate any sensitivity.
What teeth whitening options do you offer?
At Old Settlers Dental, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options.
One of the most popular procedures for refreshing your smile is professional teeth whitening. For in-office treatment, we are proud to use the KöR Teeth Whitening System at our Round Rock dental office. We provide you with a customized set of whitening trays that you wear for about two weeks while you sleep for amazing results. We use innovative KöR whitening because it is very effective for lifting difficult stains from your teeth.
We also offer NiteWhite kits that you can use at your convenience in your own home. Your kit includes custom-made whitening trays that you wear for about twenty to thirty minutes every day. In about two weeks, you will see the beautiful results, usually about six to eight shades whiter.
How do you use porcelain crowns and veneers?
We use dental crowns and porcelain veneers to correct numerous aesthetic flaws from chips or breaks to severely stained teeth. Tooth-colored composite fillings look natural, and we can customize the shade to blend seamlessly with your own teeth. This quality also makes it perfect for a procedure called cosmetic dental bonding that addresses many cosmetic imperfections.
We can use these treatments individually or in combination to provide a true smile transformation. Dr. Lewcock and Dr. Zavala both take great pleasure in helping our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. We think you will be amazed at the difference that a few minor changes can make to your appearance and self-esteem.
We’ll be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation to discuss your needs. Please give us a call to get started on your new smile!
What is cosmetic dental bonding?
We use dental bonding at our Round Rock dental office for cosmetic purposes, but it can also smooth a rough tooth that has been damaged, so it doesn’t irritate your mouth or tongue
We use tooth-colored composite, the same material we use to fill cavities and match it to your teeth for a seamless appearance. We typically apply the bonding material on teeth that do not absorb much of the force from chewing. For posterior teeth, or back teeth, a dental crown will offer greater stability and longevity.
Which is better, dental bonding or porcelain veneers?
Dental bonding adds to your existing tooth structure to correct small imperfections such as chips, small gaps, and non-uniform teeth. If you are looking to repair the appearance of a tooth or a number of teeth, weighing your options is essential.
Dental bonding and veneers both offer cosmetic benefits, but knowing the difference is vital.
What’s the difference between Invisalign and Six Month Smiles?
Invisalign clear aligners are a popular adult orthodontic treatment because they offer so many advantages over other types of short-term braces. Invisalign is made out of smooth plastic that won’t irritate your mouth, making them easy to wear.
The aligners are also removable so that you can take them out for special occasions, but Invisalign is so discreet that most people won’t know you’re wearing them. Since they’re removable, you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods, and oral hygiene is also much more efficient. Treatment times for Invisalign range from 12 to 15 months for adults.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are another short-term option that straightens your front teeth in a matter of months. We place clear brackets and tooth-colored wires on the misaligned teeth that show when you smile. The action of Six Month Smiles is similar to traditional braces, but focuses only on the teeth that show when you smile.
The goal of Six Months Smiles treatment in Round Rock is to correct the aesthetic problem of misaligned teeth, and treatment times are so short because we are not making adjustments to your dental bite.
