Its Just Not About Emergencies With Us
At Emergency Dentist Austin we offer cosmetic services as well as our emergency dental services to all our patients. Here’s some of the ways we make your smile totally white and fresh:
Your Smile Makeovers
Most adults have parts of their smiles they’re not satisfied with. Staining, darkness, cracks, chips, poor alignment, ugly dark fillings and other issues can make you feel self-conscious about your smile instead of self-confident. When you smile, people notice. A smile audit, plan and makeover addresses multiple issues affecting your smile and your teeth. It can include veneers and other restorative treatments to correct cracks and chips or replace missing teeth, cosmetic treatments to whiten and brighten teeth, or orthodontic treatment to address overbites, underbites or other alignment issues. Every smile makeover is customized to each patient’s unique needs.
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of durable material laid on top of the tooth’s surface to correct issues like cracks, chips, uneven or worn tooth edges, gaps between teeth and deep staining that doesn’t respond to whitening. In many cases, they can be a good alternative to crowns for improving the appearance of your teeth. They can also be used to help small teeth appear larger, especially in a “gummy” smile. Porcelain veneers can be tinted to match the surrounding teeth, and they’ll be custom-shaped for your mouth to ensure a natural, healthy appearance.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic system that uses a series of removable plastic trays called aligners to move your teeth into proper alignment over a period of several months. Because the aligners can be removed for eating and brushing and because the clear aligners are almost invisible while they’re being worn, Invisalign® has become a very popular alternative to traditional braces.
Botox® is a neuromuscular agent that works by safely blocking nerve signals from the facial muscles to the brain. When you smile, frown or make other expressions, your brain tells certain muscles of your face to contract. Over time, all those contractions can cause lines and creases to form in the skin overlying those muscles. Botox® blocks those signals and prevents the brain from telling the muscles to contract so skin doesn’t crease and wrinkle. It’s used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines.
Lasers are devices that use highly-focused beams of powerful energy to perform an array of dental procedures, as well as other types of medical procedures. Because their beams are so highly-focused, they can provide very accurate treatments and they can also reduce the amount of bleeding during procedures so healing can occur more quickly. Of all the dental lasers, the Epic and Waterlase are the most advanced, offering patients better results.
We use Lasers for the following:
- Tooth decay removal and preparing the tooth to receive a filling: lasers’ precision ensures only the decay is removed, preserving more of the tooth and resulting in less discomfort than traditional drilling.
- Curing some types of filling materials to help them bond more securely with the tooth surface once decay has been removed.
- Gum disease treatment: Lasers are used to kill bacteria below the gum line, and they can also be used to reshape the gums when needed.
- Biopsies: Thanks to their precise cutting ability, lasers are an excellent tool for removing tissue for microscopic evaluation as well as removing non-cancerous lesions and treating painful canker sores.
