Looking for Houston Cosmetic Dentists?
Here are a few options for your cosmetic dentistry needs.
The Texas Tooth Lady
Dr. Alani is one of many Houston cosmetic dentists. You can find her office just west of the Galleria at 5636 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77056.
Her office offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry options: teeth whitening, Invisalign, and multiple dental veneer options!
- Snap-On Smile
- Teeth Whitening
- Cosmetic Bonding
- Multiple Veneer Options
A Snap-On smile covers your natural teeth to make them appear straight and perfect. The process is done in several dentist office visits.
- It is relatively cheaper
- The process is painless
- Only lasts 2-5 years
- Can appear fake
Dr. Alani’s office uses the Zoom! teeth whitening system. This system can be great for getting a bright, white smile but it may require multiple treatments for people with deeper stains. Since multiple treatments can become very expensive, other methods may be necessary for patients with these deeper stains.
- New bright smile
- Gel treatments are relatively inexpensive
- All procedures are only on the surface of teeth
- Teeth may become sensitive
- Multiple treatments may be required
- Immediately after the procedure, teeth are more prone to stain
In the cosmetic bonding process, a dentist uses resin to fix issues with a tooth. These issues can be small chips, alignment issues, or fixing of the overall shape. This process can work well for patients with minor problems, but this solution needs to be repaired every 5 to 10 years. Continual teeth whitening procedures are also recommended to keep the color of the tooth identical to the resin. The replacement and upkeep can be expensive.
- Can be completed in one office visit
- Is a relatively painless process
- Does not last as long as other options
- Is often prone to becoming stained
Invisalign is an orthodontic procedure that straightens teeth over time. This procedure is generally appealing for people who want an alternative to metal braces. The process is long and requires patients to wear a clear aligner for as much of the day as possible. The aligner must be removed when eating and can be an inconvenient process.
- Straightens your natural teeth
- Continual use is temporary
- People with severe dental issues are ineligible
- This procedure is very expensive
- Must remove Invisalign trays when eating
- Must wear a retainer at night even after the procedure
Dr. Alani’s office offers multiple dental veneer options. The options include Snap-On Smile, Lumineers, minimal-prep veneers, and traditional porcelain veneers.
- Look like perfect real teeth
- Don’t stain
- Quick to create
- Teeth may have to be shaped
- Requires routine replacements
- Porcelain can chip
Each option has it’s pros and cons and all are done in the dental office with Dr. Alani’s staff.
All of the procedures above can be expensive especially for people with or without health insurance. Some procedures can take quite a bit of time requiring patients to take off from work multiple days. Many procedures are also often charged by the tooth and can easily creep up the cost. Costs for cosmetic dentistry can absolutely skyrocket – costing patients thousands and tens of thousands of dollars.
Many people don’t get cosmetic dental work done because of the high cost – and choose instead to live with their imperfect smile.
