Greetings and happy spring, everyone! Our acclaimed dentist at Cosmetic Dental Associates, Dr. John Moore, has been hard at work transforming patients’ smiles and changing their lives for 35 years.
As a well-respected leader in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Moore is able to offer a wide variety of procedures that can help give you the smile of your dreams. Of course, this is no surprise to anyone on our highly trained San Antonio dental team.
But what does continue to surprise us is when satisfied patients tell us they wish they’d had their cosmetic work done years ago. There seem to be so many things that stand in a person’s way when it comes to improving the appearance of their teeth.
For some, perhaps it’s dental anxiety. For others it may be an issue of cost. Whatever the reason, we want you to know that cosmetic dentistry is so much more than you might think.
That’s why today we’re answering some of our most common questions regarding smile beautification. Keep reading to see if any of your burning questions have made today’s list!
Question #1: Aren’t all cosmetic dental procedures invasive and complicated?
Absolutely not! You’d be amazed at what advanced dental technology allows us to do at Cosmetic Dental Associates. You have such a wide range of options available to you, and several of them are noninvasive and surprisingly quick.
For example, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments that can be done right here in our office using a Sapphire light, or you can purchase one of our teeth whitening kits to use in the convenience of your own home.
We also offer permanent teeth whitening with veneers. Dr. Moore is an artist in cosmetic dentistry and can give you a Hollywood style smile for any occasion that will also last you for years and years to come.
Another option is something called cosmetic reshaping, where the shape of your tooth is gently and artfully reworked to provide better symmetry to the look of your smile. This is a pain-free, quick, and inexpensive option you probably didn’t even know existed!
Question #2: I’m an adult with crooked teeth. Am I too old for braces?
Thanks to Dr. Moore, our talented team, and our in-house lab, you no longer have to endure the traditional metal braces that your teenager wears. Now, you have more discreet options that are just perfect for an adult who wants straighter teeth without looking like they just stepped out of their old high school yearbook.
We offer Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and Invisabrace, all of which allow you to enjoy straight teeth via custom-made clear aligners. You can remove them to eat, brush, and floss and still get the results you’re looking for.
Since they’re clear, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. This makes orthodontics much more practical for any adult who, for example, wants to perform their daily work in a professional setting without worrying about people noticing their braces.
Question #3: Do veneers look natural?
Our patients’ dental veneers look just like natural teeth, especially in the hands of Dr. Moore, who also happens to have a background in art. There’s a reason we often refer to him as an artist!
We offer porcelain veneers, lumineers, and prepless veneers. Depending on your particular dental needs, the timeline of your veneers procedure may vary, but oftentimes, we can perform this procedure and have patients enjoying a newer, more beautiful smile in as little as two visits!
Remember Question #1? We weren’t kidding when we said not every cosmetic dental procedure has to be complicated!
So, now it’s our turn to ask a question: What’s been holding you back from having the smile you’ve always wanted?
If there is anything at all you don’t like about your smile, it can have a negative impact on your confidence and your overall quality of life. At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we’re committed to doing all we can to improve your smile and give you the confidence to move toward your best life possible. Won’t you let us help you?
