Of all the dental treatment and prevention we offer at Advanced Dental Care of Las Colinas, cosmetic dentistry is certainly one of the most exciting areas of our expertise. Dr. Jerry Dunn is committed to providing high quality, high tech dental care to the patients of his practice. In an effort to do so, you may have noticed some new, advanced dental procedures enter our scope of practice. Our patients expect the most current techniques and advanced solutions to their dental care needs. Just in case you’ve missed our newest additions, we’ve outlined some of them here.
Nobody likes having a dental impression taken. When your cosmetic dentistry plan requires models of your teeth, you can skip the discomfort and goopy mess of dental impressions and instead relax and enjoy the simplicity with the Itero digital scan which provides a 3-D computerized model of your teeth. Because the Itero offers incredible accuracy, you can be assured that your dental restorations, cosmetic dental veneers and bridges will fit you precisely, requiring fewer adjustments and a more natural fit.
All-On-Four Dental Implants
Missing teeth are one of the most common reasons patients seek cosmetic dentistry. With dental implants, individual teeth or even an entire set of teeth can be replaced. For complete full mouth dental implants, Dr. Dunn relies upon the proven All-On-Four technique which offers patients full dental replacement with as few as four dental implants per arch. Although dental implants provide a durable, comfortable and functional solution to missing teeth, they also provide incredible aesthetics, restoring your smile and making it possible for you to laugh out loud again.
Invisalign Clear Dental Aligners
One of the newest additions to our repertoire of cosmetic dental solutions is having the ability to straighten teeth without traditional braces. Many patients choose not to correct misaligned teeth because they do not want to contend with metal brackets and wires on their teeth during treatment. For many dental patients, a significant cosmetic improvement as well as functional improvements can be made in as little as one year using Invisalign clear dental aligners. The treatment involves wearing a clear, custom made sleeve over the teeth which resembles a teeth whitening tray. The trays are replaced every few weeks as the teeth are gently moved into alignment. A significant advantage with Invisalign is that there are no dietary restrictions, the trays are removed for meals. In addition, there are fewer appointments for adjustments, as the trays are easily replaced on schedule at home. Dental hygiene is not impacted because the trays are removed for usual brushing and flossing.
Even healthy teeth are not always the most attractive teeth. Discoloration, stains, chips and even gaps can be corrected with cosmetic dental veneers. DURA-thin veneers offer the ability to correct problems such as these without the need for “prepping” (removal of tooth structure) of the teeth. A veneer covers the natural tooth with a cosmetically pleasing shell, which adheres to the tooth surface. It provides a new, whiter, even textured and perfectly shaped tooth covering. One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures, Dr. Dunn offers this advanced solution to his patients who seek to improve their appearance with cosmetic dentistry.
Zoom! Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is an extremely popular cosmetic dental treatment. At Advanced Dental Care of Las Colinas, patients can improve their smile with teeth up to several shades whiter in just an hour. Using the laser technology available with Zoom! Whitening, our patients can sit back and relax while they whiten their teeth on their lunch hour. To achieve a bright, white smile at home, we also offer professional take-home teeth whitening to our patients.
