TEETH WHITENING

Wouldn’t we all love to have whiter, more healthy-looking teeth?

We brush, floss, rinse, and go for our regular dental checkups, but the wear and tear of day-to-day life continues to take its toll. Whether it’s routine exposure to coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, or foods that stain like blueberry or cherry pie, our teeth could probably use some TLC to give them back a truly brilliant luster.

What Are My Options?

The options to whiten your smile can seem endless. A quick browse through the local pharmacy will reveal lots of over-the-counter options: whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, floss, strips, gels, and trays, all with a range of prices that appeal to both penny-pinchers and those willing to splurge. Many of these products also claim results similar to professional, dental-office whitening but in just minutes a day over the course of several days and at a fraction of the cost.

Can Dr. Barroso Help Me Whiten My Teeth?

Dentists, too, can choose from lots of bleaching options to help patients have the smile they want, and if you would prefer to trust the work of a pro, a trip to Dr. Barroso’s Legacy Dental office is in order. Your in-office treatment may take one visit or a couple and may use a special light to enhance whitening effects.

Can Dr. Barroso Give Me Something To Whiten My Teeth From Home?

Dr. Barroso may also offer an alternative with a set of disposable, take-home whitening trays. These pre-filled trays are hard-working and allow you to achieve professional-grade whitening at an affordable price. You can use them at whatever time and place is most convenient for you, which takes the stress out of trying to schedule treatments around your busy days. They also have the added safety net of keeping you under the care of the Burleson dentist you trust, who can help you with any questions you might have about your experience.

Do A Lot Of People Whiten Their Teeth?

These days most people whiten their teeth in some way, and it has become one of the most common cosmetic procedures available. If you think that a whiter, brighter smile will make you feel better as you navigate your life, a trip to the pharmacy or the dental office will reveal that your choices are endless. Whether you are looking for an inexpensive treatment or are ready for a splurge, an effective whitening solution is waiting for you.

Ready for a smile makeover?

Each morning you’ve enjoyed your coffee-and-doughnuts routine as a quick break from your busy and hectic life. But, one day recently you looked at your smile in the mirror and realized your morning ritual, and perhaps and a number of other factors such as nicotine, wine, and simple wear over time have taken their toll on your teeth.

Maybe you also have one tooth that is a little less than straight, or you might have a gap between two teeth. Perhaps you think your gums show too much when you smile. If any of these problems have made you embarrassed of the way your mouth looks, you’d likely love to find a way to feel more confident about your smile.

If you are considering aesthetic improvements and would like dramatic results, check with Dr. Barroso and his team at Legacy Dental to see if veneers are the right choice for you.

How can porcelain veneers help fix my smile?

Porcelain veneers can help with all of the issues listed above, and more. They can:

  • Mask teeth that are aged or discolored
  • Hide years of wear or severe stains
  • Close gaps between teeth that have shifted
  • Repair teeth that are crooked or worn
  • Adjust tooth shape or size
  • Fix a gummy smile

How do porcelain veneers work?

Manufactured by a dental technician in a laboratory to exactly match specifications sent by Dr. Barroso, porcelain veneers are ceramic, wafer-thin shells that are often not much wider than a fingernail. They are bonded to the front of one tooth or several teeth using resin cement, and can be used simply on what shows when you smile, or can be used for a full mouth makeover.

What makes porcelain veneers so special?

While veneers are more expensive than some other dental treatments, they are extremely versatile, and the technology behind them has evolved to meet a number of aesthetic and restorative needs. Because of the way they are made, veneers can be designed to match the shade and translucency of neighboring teeth, looking very much like a natural tooth. Porcelain veneers also have a surface that resists staining and can provide an attractive, polished restoration for 10 to 15 years.

Why Choose Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are an alternative treatment option to traditional metal braces and are an attractive option for teens and adults for many reasons. Unfortunately, sometimes people who would immensely benefit from braces don’t get them because of the way they look. And we get it – braces aren’t the most convenient in some cases. Adults don’t want to look like a teen when they’re headed to the office or out on a business lunch. And teens often don’t want to be seen with a mouth full of metal that catches food or makes them speak funny. 

We don’t want our adult patients to look unprofessional or have their careers affected by missing out on opportunities because of their treatment. We don’t want our teen patients to worry about their image, or develop self-esteem issues. Luckily, clear aligners are an aesthetic orthodontic system that can provide straighter teeth for both teens and adults. 

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear Aligners use plastic aligners that are custom fabricated using advanced technology to precisely move your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed slightly different from the next. This reflects the transition your teeth make throughout the process. Along with the rigid trays, “buttons” are attached to the front of some teeth to gradually and gently move them into their proper position. These bonded “buttons” are tooth-colored; though you’ll be able to feel them with your tongue, most people won’t notice them when talking to you. Once you’ve completed treatment, we will remove the “buttons” leaving your teeth as good as new.

What Happens Post-Treatment?

As with any orthodontic treatment, once finished, you’ll need a maintenance regimen. This step prevents your teeth from shifting back. The orthodontic process is a big commitment, so you’ll want to protect your investments by wearing a retainer.

These clear plastic trays look much like the clear aligners do. Retainers are comfortable and removable, yet extremely durable – providing reliable results.

Are Clear Aligners Right For You?

In general, clear aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally managed with braces, as long as the case isn’t extremely complex. Our Burleson dental experts may recommend clear aligners to correct teeth that are slightly crowded, crooked, or gapped. Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite, can also be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

During your initial consultation, we will determine whether you’re a candidate for clear aligners. This treatment is often a great choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, these aligners are also very comfortable because they are made from smooth, thin plastic without any fixed metal appliances.
