Make This the Year Your Smile Sparkles

The beginning of a new year and a new decade can boost your motivation to start new habits and be your best self. A bright, healthy smile is at the top of many people's self-improvement lists. If you want to get the year, and the decade off with a sparkling smile, you have plenty of cosmetic dentistry treatments to choose from. 

Here at La Michoacana Dental Clinic boasting two Houston, Texas, locations, our team of experienced and compassionate dentists offers a variety of treatments to give you a picture-perfect smile you've always wanted. Depending on your needs, they can even combine procedures for a full-mouth restoration.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental treatments available today. A bright white smile is a sign of youth and health, but drinking tea, coffee, and wine can stain your teeth. We offer innovative Kӧr® teeth whitening treatments to brighten your teeth by several shades. The whitening gel and trays are formulated for maximum effectiveness with a reduced risk of tooth sensitivity. 

Cosmetic bonding

Our dentists are also master artists when it comes to cosmetic bonding. Whether you have an unsightly chip in your tooth or an unevenly sized or shaped tooth, our dentists hand-shape the tooth-colored resin and bond it to your tooth to create a perfect and symmetrical smile. We can restore and enhance your smile in just one visit with cosmetic bonding.

Veneers

We also offer porcelain dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to cover the fronts of your teeth to create an Instagram-worthy smile. In most cases, our dental team needs two appointments to apply your veneers. During the first appointment, we prepare your teeth and take molds, which are used to custom-make your veneers. Then at your second appointment, we bond the veneers to your teeth to give you a perfect smile.

Tooth-colored restorations

If you have old silver amalgam fillings or need to have a new filling, ask our dentists about replacing your metal fillings with tooth-colored restorations. Not only are resin fillings nearly invisible on your teeth, but they also won't change shape or size with age, which reduces your risk of additional decay or cracks in your treated tooth. 

Orthodontics

Our dentists also offer Invisalign® orthodontic treatments to correct alignment issues and crooked teeth. Invisalign uses clear plastic trays to guide your teeth into their optimal positions. Not only do you end up with a beautiful smile, but you don't have to suffer through months or even years of having metal brackets and wires on your teeth. 

Dental implants

Nothing interferes with your smile quite like a missing tooth. While over 178 million American adults are missing at least one permanent tooth, you shouldn't have to put up with a gap in your smile. We offer custom-made dental implants to provide a natural-looking prosthetic tooth. As an added benefit, dental implants stimulate bone growth in your jaw, which can help prevent future tooth loss.

You don't have to live with an imperfect smile. Call or schedule an appointment online to start the process of creating a beautiful smile today.
