Don't hide your smile, improve it! Cosmetic dentistry in Conroe, TX, can help give you the confidence to smile again. Dr. Logan Wood, Dr. Radley Robins, and Dr. Emily Graham of Conroe Family Dentistry offer a variety of cosmetic treatments for all your dental needs.

Teeth Whitening

The first thing that most people who want to improve their smile think about is teeth whitening. Regular brushing keeps your teeth healthy, but for a truly bright white smile, you should consider professional whitening. In-office whitening only takes an hour and brightens your smile by up to eight shades.

Bonding

If you have chipped or cracked teeth your dentist may recommend this treatment. Using a dental bonding material, your dentist will fill and reshape your damaged teeth. 

Dental Veneers

Veneers are another alternative to enhance your smile, provided by your cosmetic dentist in Conroe, TX. They are thin shells that cover the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections and give you a perfect smile.

Dental Implants

If you have one or more teeth that can't be repaired with bonding or veneers or have a gap in your smile, dental implants are an excellent option because they can replace one or more teeth. Titanium posts are affixed to the patient's jaw and it is on these that the replacement crown is bonded, making for a very long-lasting addition to your smile.

Your dentist can find the best combination of cosmetic treatments specifically for you.

Don't Delay

Are you looking to improve the appearance of your front teeth? Dental veneers are widely used to improve the appearance of front teeth and are a much more conservative option than a full dental crown. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of staining, large gaps, large fillings, chipped teeth, or overall shape. Veneers are a thin covering over the front and biting end of the tooth used to restore the beauty of a smile. Over the years we have helped many patients who opted for veneers and now have the confidence to smile again. Just call Drs. Logan Wood and Radley Robins of Conroe Family Dentistry. We are conveniently located in Conroe, TX.

Dental veneers are made in a lab from long-lasting porcelain materials. The shade can be chosen as a desirable color to whiten the appearance of your smile. Dental veneers are usually placed on the anterior, or front teeth, where the chewing forces are not as hard as the back teeth. The process of placing veneers is relatively easy requiring only two dental appointments. In some cases, only one appointment is needed. It depends on the fabrication process.

The first appointment is to “prep” the teeth and takes an impression to be sent to a lab to fabricate the veneers. Veneers are fairly conservative in the preparation as it requires a small amount of space to be created on the face (front), bottom, and sides of each tooth to allow space for the veneer to be placed and look natural. You will leave the office with temporary veneers for the next week or two while the permanent veneers are being made.

The second appointment is to place the veneers and make minor adjustments if needed. What a difference it makes in the appearance of the teeth! If you’re interested in learning more, give Drs. Logan Wood and Radley Robins of Conroe Family Dentistry a call today! You can reach their Conroe, TX, office by dialing (936) 539-2211.

Are your dental contours less than satisfactory? Do some teeth have chips or deep stains? Here at Conroe Family Dentistry in Conroe, TX, your cosmetic dentists, Dr. Logan Wood and Dr. Radley Robins, fix these smile imperfections with the help of porcelain veneers. Thin shells of high-grade porcelain, veneers disguise aesthetic flaws so that you can smile with confidence.

A chipped tooth

It's no big deal—unless you're the person who has one right in the front of your mouth. Defects such as chips, small gaps, stains, pits, and mild overcrowding may not affect your oral health, but they sure do hurt your self-confidence.

We suggest you come to our Conroe office for a review of your cosmetic dentistry options. Dr. Wood or Dr. Robins will examine your gums and teeth, take an X-ray screening, and ask you how you want to improve your smile.

Next, you and your cosmetic dentist will discuss the best way to fix your smile. Next to professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers—also called dental laminates—are today's most popular aesthetic service.

How veneers work

Dental laminates are custom-made according to your oral impressions and any instructions that your dentist gives the dental lab. Each restoration is sculpted individually and colored to blend in with the rest of your smile.

To make sure, that each veneer fits over the front side of your teeth properly, your dentist gently removes a portion of enamel—about 1/2 millimeter. Next, he installs temporary veneers so that your smile looks natural while your permanent laminates are made.

Once the veneers come back from the lab, your dentist takes off the temporary laminates and tries on the permanent ones. To finalize the treatment, a tooth-colored cement is used to bonds the new veneers in place, leaving you with a brand-new smile!
