Enhancing Smiles with Odessa's Cosmetic Dentist
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you’re not alone. Each year, consumers spend millions of dollars on over the counter teeth whitening products alone, and unfortunately, these products are only minimally effective. At Boyles General Dentistry, Drs. Franklin and Stephen Boyles are happy to offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to brighten teeth, conceal flaws, and give patients the picture perfect smiles they deserve. Contact our team to find out more or schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation today.
Direct or cosmetic bonding is one of the fastest and most effective ways to correct and conceal a number of minor cosmetic flaws. Using the same high quality composite resin we recommend for fillings, the dentist carefully restores small chips and cracks, fills gaps between teeth, and conceals discoloration or staining leaving smiles looking flawless. For many patients, direct bonding is an effective and affordable way to transform their smiles in a single visit with minimal pain and little to no loss of natural dental structure.
Are you struggling with multiple cosmetic flaws that all need correction? Porcelain veneers can be the perfect catch-all solution that refreshes your smile’s appearance! These high-quality restorations are designed to be very thin, allowing our doctors to fit them over certain teeth in a natural-looking way. Suddenly, years of stains, chips, cracks, and more are safely hidden behind a new, dazzling appearance that you’ll be proud to show off. The porcelain material is also more resistant against natural staining, which means you’ll maintain your improvements longer.
Due to the popularity of store bought whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, and gels, it will likely come as no surprise that our professional at-home whitening kits are one of our most popular treatment options. Unlike the store bought varieties, our at-home whitening kits use professional grade whitening gel with a significantly higher dosage than is available from store brand kits, and the custom application tray we include fits snugly over teeth during treatment. This keeps the gums safe from the potentially damaging effects of the whitening gel, and seals out saliva which neutralizes the whitener making it ineffective after just a few minutes. That means safer, more reliable, and more predictable treatment and results.
Gum Recontouring & Crown Lengthening
Many patients we treat don’t consider the effect that their gum line has on the appearance of their smiles, but actually, the size and shape of gum tissue can have a significant impact on the appearance of smiles. We offer gum recontouring for those patients who have “gummy” smiles or whose gum line is uneven making their teeth appear crooked or irregularly shaped. We also may need to perform crown lengthening, a procedure that removes a small amount of soft tissue to expose enough tooth to support a dental crown.
