Ensuring positive oral health for years to come is always the highest priority at Dr. Tijerina’s dental office. However, that doesn’t mean you should have to settle for your smile’s appearance if you aren’t happy with it. After all, having good oral health doesn’t necessarily mean you’re happy with stains, chips, cracks or gaps in your teeth! With cosmetic dentistry in McAllen, TX, we can transform your smile for the better; simply call our dental office and we’ll help develop a treatment plan that works for you!
Do you wish you could hide all the visible cracks, stains, chips and even gaps in your smile with a single treatment? Want to make it happen in just two appointments? Porcelain veneers utilize custom-made ceramics to cover any and all imperfections seamlessly! The material we use is designed to mimic tooth enamel exactly and can be custom-shaded to blend in naturally with the rest of your visible teeth. After slightly buffing teeth so the veneers sit flush, you can expect your smile to last at least 10 years or more with proper care.
Crowns are largely meant to protect teeth and restore their functions, but they are also ideal for those with tooth stains that simply won’t go away or cosmetically misshapen teeth. Each crown we provide is personalized to you, including the size, shape and color, so you can always feel confident showing your smile off to friends and family. We make use of the best-looking and longest-lasting dental ceramics available as well as work with a trusted dental lab to create your restoration.
When you need only minor issues corrected, such as small stains or small chips and cracks that don’t affect your overall oral health, you don’t need to jump to porcelain veneers or crowns if you don’t want to. Cosmetic bonding makes use of the same material we use for placing dental fillings. In just one appointment, even the most noticeable imperfections can seemingly vanish thanks to custom-blended composite resin materials at our dental office!
One of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening, and for good reason. Making your smile several shades whiter is easy to accomplish both in our dental office and at home on your own time! If you want the fastest method possible for substantially whiter teeth, our In-Office Opalescence® treatment might be for you. However, if you’d rather slowly whiten teeth over the course of two weeks at home or on the go, Take-Home Opalescence trays are likely more ideal.
Does your smile appear “gummy?” If so, it’s likely that your genetics cause more gum tissue to grow and develop than what as necessary. This can result in teeth appearing shorter than usual or your gum line looking uneven throughout. Using a soft tissue laser makes it incredibly easy to adjust the shape of your gum line, remove excess tissue covering teeth, and create a fuller and more balanced smile you’re proud to show off!
