How Long Until A Brighter Smile?

Your smile has been a part of your life since your first gummy grin. Not everyone has grown up thrilled with the look of their smile, whether due to a crooked tooth, an awkward gap, or a dingy film that seems to have gradually appeared out of nowhere.  Depending on what bothers your about your smile, our trusted dental team in Grand Prairie, TX can offer solutions that help you love your smile. Whether your smile has changed slowly, or you’ve suffered an accident or other acute change, we can make a positive difference.

You Can Love It In A  Day

If your chief complaint is a dull smile, we might suggest an in-office teeth-whitening procedure, overseen by our trusted team. This fast and non-messy procedure can be done on a long lunch hour, or in an afternoon. You will leave our office with a smile that is several shades lighter.

You Can Love It In A Couple Of Weeks

If stains are not the only issue, we may suggest porcelain veneers as an option to correct several flaws at the same time. Veneers can be crafted to cover stains, especially intrinsic stains, that are not on the surface of the tooth. The same veneer can have a shape that covers a gap, lengthens a too-short tooth, or smoothes the texture of rough tooth enamel. Lumineers are even thinner than porcelain veneers, and may be an option for some patients.

Sometimes It Takes A Bit Longer

Some smile issues take longer to address, but it can be worth the time invested. For example, if a missing tooth has left an empty spot in your smile, a dental implant may be the solution. Implants are placed during one appointment, followed by a period of healing while the titanium post (artificial root) bonds with the bone in your jaw. Implants can support a single tooth, or several implants can support a bridge or partial or full denture. Once the healing process is completed and the prosthesis is in place, you will be amazed at the change in your smile.
