Why Choose Us for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Porcelain veneers: Transform your smile in just 2 appointments
- Digital imaging: See results before treatment even starts
If you’ve ever looked at an actor or model’s teeth and thought, “How are they so perfect?!” the secret is probably porcelain veneers! These are extremely thin pieces of ceramic that are designed to look like pristine white enamel, and they’re fitted directly over the front of the teeth. With them, Dr. Lankupalli can literally change the shape, size, and color of your teeth to whatever you want, eliminating any flaw while giving you a truly gorgeous grin.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
At Orbit Dental of Garland, we’re committed to providing dental work that is always strong, reliable, and beautiful all at the same time. So, whenever a patient needs one of their front teeth repaired, we provide them with a custom-made porcelain restoration. This material faithfully mimics both the look and feel of real enamel, enabling Dr. Lankupalli to create something that seamlessly blends into the smile both aesthetically and functionally.
For those looking for a quick fix for a small dark spot, tiny chip, or thin gap, cosmetic bonding is a fast, reliable, and affordable solution. A color-matched composite resin is applied to any damaged or missing enamel, and then it’s sculpted to artfully hide any imperfection. The entire procedure only takes about an hour, is 100% painless, and the results can easily last for about a decade or more.
Zoom! Whitening is able to eliminate the stubborn dental stains that most store bought treatments leave behind, and at Orbit Dental of Garland, you can get it either in office or take it home with you! Our on-site treatment takes less than an hour to deliver dramatic results, or we can give you your own custom-made kit to use whenever and wherever you want. Whichever one you choose, you’ll be able to say “goodbye!” to those pesky coffee, wine, and tobacco stains and “hello!” to teeth that are 6-8 shades whiter!
The perfect smile shows just the right proportion of teeth, gums, and lips, but for many patients, their gum line actually overshadows their teeth and makes them appear too short and stubby. Using a soft tissue laser, Dr. Lankupalli can quickly and precisely remove any excess gum tissue to make the teeth instantly appear longer, restoring balance to the smile in one easy appointment. This treatment can also be used to expose more of a tooth so it can safely hold a crown or porcelain veneer.
Our digital imaging technology allows patients to see into the future! We can take a picture of your smile and then edit it to show you how any treatment you’re interested in will change its appearance. This way, you can know you’ll love your results even before you sit in the dental chair! And, if you would like any adjustments to be made, they can be done in seconds to guarantee you get exactly what you want.
Botox, Juvederm, Fillers
After we’ve given a patient the smile they’ve always wanted, we can go a step further and eliminate any fine lines and facial wrinkles as well using Botox and Juvederm. Our team has taken extensive training to safely and effectively use these treatments, meaning you now have the convenience of being able to get spa-like care every time you go to the dentist. In just one appointment, we can give you a stunning smile and smoother, more youthful skin to go along with it, helping you look and feel your absolute best while saving time.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
You’re surely excited to get on the road to owning the smile of your dreams. Still, you may have some questions before you are ready to commit to any treatment from a cosmetic dentist in Garland. That’s why we have put together the following list of FAQs that we receive about our cosmetic services. If you do not find the information you were hoping for, you are always free to give us a call so we can personally answer your questions.
How Much Does Cosmetic Dentistry Cost? Will My Insurance Cover It?
The cost of cosmetic dentistry can vary greatly from case to case. For example, someone who wants a routine teeth whitening procedure will pay less than someone who wishes to undergo a total smile transformation. We will be sure to give you a forthright estimate for the cost of any procedures you are thinking about getting done.
In most cases, dental insurance does not provide any coverage for cosmetic dentistry. However, if your procedure is both cosmetic and restorative in nature, your policy might pay for a portion of it. For example, metal-free restorations, such as white fillings and porcelain crowns, are often covered by insurance.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Good for My Teeth?
Some treatments that improve the appearance of teeth are also very good for oral health. For example, tooth-colored fillings not only look good, but they require less tooth preparation than metal fillings. They are also totally mercury-free. Other cosmetic dentistry services, such as teeth whitening, do not have any significant oral health benefits; their greatest advantage comes from the fact that they can boost your confidence and help you feel like your best self.
How Do I Know Which Procedure Is Right for Me?
In some cases, there may be multiple treatments that can achieve similar results. For example, dental bonding and porcelain veneers may look identical immediately after the procedure’s completion. However, veneers retain their initial beauty for much longer. If there is more than one treatment that can help you achieve your goals, we will thoroughly explain the pros and cons of each. We will also use our digital imaging technology to give you a realistic preview of what you can expect from any treatment you are considering.
How Long Will the Process Take?
Some procedures take just one or two appointments. Zoom! teeth whitening and dental bonding may take an hour or less. Porcelain veneers typically require two appointments. More extensive procedures from your dentist in Garland may take place over the course of months or require continual maintenance. For instance, Invisalign usually take around one year to complete. Our skin services require regular injections (once every few months) to achieve and maintain optimum results.
