Are you looking for a way to remove stains from your enamel? Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Narita, can perform teeth whitening with the Zoom! Whitening system. In clinical trials, this cosmetic dentistry technique was shown to have the ability to remove up to 90% of surface stains. Speak with our Allen team today to begin planning your cosmetic dentistry treatment.
If you have a chipped or broken tooth, ask us for help. Damaged teeth can be embarrassing, which is why we’re happy to help conceal them with porcelain veneers. During this cosmetic dentistry procedure, Dr. Narita will take a thin, tooth-shaped wafer of ceramic and bond it permanently to the tooth. The porcelain veneer hides the actual, injured tooth from view while giving your smile a whole, intact appearance.
While porcelain veneers are highly effective in helping patients achieve comprehensive smile transformations, they’re also considered permanent because tooth enamel has to be altered to accommodate them. Alternatively, Lumineers are even thinner – about the width of a contact lens – and require little to no tooth reduction, which means that patients can return to their natural smile at a later time if they choose to do so. Dr. Narita will be happy to review the benefits and potential disadvantages of each cosmetic option with patients in greater detail during their consultation. We want to find the solution that best suits your needs!
Instead of noticeable gold and silver, today’s restorative work is more lifelike than ever before. Dr. Narita is happy to primarily offer all-ceramic dental crowns, inlays, and onlays to patients who are seeking the ideal combination of durable tooth structure and cosmetic benefits. These materials are metal-free and virtually seamless – they even reflect light in the same way as natural tooth enamel. Their biocompatible nature is also much safer and more comfortable for patients, even those who’ve struggled with sensitivities and allergies to dental materials in the past.
Even minor dental flaws like chips and gaps can loom large in an otherwise healthy smile. That’s why Dr. Narita offers cosmetic bonding as a simple and cost-effective cosmetic solution for correcting these smaller concerns. In most cases, the process only takes a single appointment – our team will provide ideally shaded composite resin, and Dr. Narita will craft a pleasing addition to the affected tooth that blends in with the rest of your smile.
Cosmetic bonding can be used to rebuild misshapen or incomplete dental structure if needed as well. Although the results don’t have the same degree of permanence as porcelain veneers or metal-free restorations, the improvements we create for your smile can last for multiple years.
Sometimes, teeth aren’t actually the problem when you’re unhappy with your smile. Instead, your gum tissue could be hiding perfectly beautiful dental structure, or a noticeably uneven gum line could be creating a strange, unsymmetrical appearance. In these instances, Dr. Narita can perform an aesthetic gum recontouring procedure, precisely removing excess tissue and shaping it to be more pleasing overall. Our team may also recommend this service for restorative purposes.
There are many people out there who could benefit from cosmetic dentistry, but actually taking the plunge and committing to treatment can be an overwhelming experience. After all, what if you’re not happy with the results? Thankfully, our Allen team can create a virtual representation of what your smile will look after certain procedures in order to help you feel confident about your proposed makeover plan. All we need is a current photo of you – a few digital adjustments later, and you’ll practically be looking into the future!
If you’re in need of a straighter smile, there are other options outside the world of traditional braces. Instead of noticeable wires and brackets, patients can achieve the beautiful improvements they’ve been dreaming of with Invisalign clear aligners! These aligners are made of a customized plastic that fits comfortably in the mouth and blends in nicely with your smile, helping your treatment remain as subtle as possible. Patients will simply switch aligners every few weeks and attend brief appointments with Dr. Narita so he can check your progress.
Please call us today if you would like to plan a cosmetic dentistry treatment. Dr. Narita welcomes new patients from Allen, McKinney, Plano, Fairview, Lucas, and the surrounding Texas communities. If this is your first time at the practice, please review the information on our new patient page.
