It is not uncommon for Houston area patients to visit a cosmetic dentistry practice to learn more about affordable options for repairing and restoring their smile. Not everyone is lucky enough to be born with a naturally beautiful, perfect smile. Some patients deal with genetic imperfections such as misaligned teeth or discoloration. Others want to address problems such as broken teeth, gaps between teeth, or even teeth that are naturally unattractive due to shape and size. Dr. Monti Harpalani of Vivid Dental is a family and cosmetic dentist ready to help patients in achieving the smile of their dreams in an affordable way. Here are just a few of the most popular cosmetic procedures completed in his practice:
Orthodontic treatments often require patients to use unsightly metal brackets and wires to improve the alignment of their teeth. Our practice uses tooth-colored orthodontics as an alternative to allow patients to realign their teeth in a discreet and fast manner.
Dental veneers, sometimes referred to as porcelain veneers, are ceramic restorations developed to cover imperfections of the smile. They are bonded on the front and can disguise a variety of concerns including staining, misalignment, spacing, and damage.
Crowns cover natural tooth structures to offer protection and to change the appearance. They can also be used over dental implants to act as a false tooth to restore function and beauty to the smile. Crowns are extremely strong and are custom-made to match the existing teeth to blend in perfectly with the rest of the smile once placed.
Replacing missing teeth can be accomplished with the use of a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a ceramic restoration made from false teeth and crowns which are fused together and bonded over the top of the adjacent teeth to support the restoration.
A brighter smile can exude confidence and beauty. When patients have found over-the-counter whitening products to fail in providing optimum results, they may want to seek alternative solutions such as professional grade bleaching. Dr. Monti Harpalani uses the KoR Deep Bleaching System in his practice for fast, beautiful, and long-lasting results for Houston area patients.
