10 Things You Don’t Have To Live With

Before the arrival of modern cosmetic dental treatments, patients were often stuck with their smiles. There was little that could be done to improve the appearance of teeth or the aesthetics of a grin. Thankfully, that is no longer the case.

Today, advanced research, training, and technology have enabled dentists to provide their patients with the smiles of their dreams. There is virtually no cosmetic dental problem that cannot be corrected, and Tomasik Family Dental is at the forefront of cosmetic dental care in Central Texas. Now, you don’t have to live with dental imperfections, and you can have the smile you desire.

Here are 10 of the most common cosmetic dental issues that we can help you with over at our Bee Cave, Texas office.

1. Dark Teeth

This is a huge one. Many patients have issues with darkened or stained teeth. Whether from coffee, tobacco, tea, etc., teeth stains are simply a fact of life. However, you don’t have to live with dark teeth. Our whitening treatments can make most teeth noticeably lighter, and we offer other solutions, like bonding and porcelain veneers, if your teeth are severely discolored.

2. Chipped Teeth

Accidents happen, and chipped teeth are sometimes the result of mishaps. Our team can easily repair your chipped teeth and restore your smile through the application of a dental bonding material. This material often lasts for years, and no one will be able to tell your tooth was ever chipped. For badly broken teeth or multiple chipped teeth, we can set you up with great looking crowns.

3. Crooked Teeth

Come to Tomasik Family Dental, and we can address your crooked teeth with several options. A set of porcelain veneers can often help if your case is mild. For more pronounced issues, we may recommend orthodontic correction with Invisalign.

4. Uneven Teeth

If your teeth appear uneven, with some longer than the others, we can help. Dental bonding to lengthen the crowns of your teeth is one option. Porcelain veneers are another possibility, particularly if you want to correct several teeth at once. With our cosmetic treatments, you can soon have a set of perfectly even teeth.

5. Large Gaps

We understand that large gaps between your teeth can be unattractive. This condition is often hereditary, but we have the solution. Bonding can reduce the severity of wide spaces between your teeth, and porcelain veneers are another potential answer to this problem.

6. Unsightly Fillings

We offer tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin at Tomasik Family Dental, rather than outdated silver amalgam fillings. However, you may already have several silver fillings that are visible when you smile. To improve your grin’s appearance, we can cover these fillings with attractive crowns that look completely natural.

7. Visible Decay

A cavity is a localized spot of decay on a tooth. We can take care of cavities with unobtrusive tooth-colored fillings, but what if you have more extensive decay? A crown is likely the answer to this cosmetic question. Once your teeth are capped with great-looking crowns, a dazzling smile is all anyone will see.

8. Brown or Yellow Spots

Some patients notice brown or yellowish spots on their teeth. These spots may be caused by certain medications or nicotine. Whitening treatments may not resolve these spots, but we have an answer. Placing a layer of bonding material over the affected teeth will help restore your smile to a brilliant white.

9. Missing Teeth

The problem of missing teeth may technically fall under restorative dentistry, but anyone would admit that an incomplete smile is also a cosmetic issue. We feature a full range of treatments for missing teeth, and we have an answer that will meet your unique needs. From dental implants to bridges and dentures, our treatments mean you don’t have to live your life with missing teeth.

10. An Unsatisfactory Smile

Whatever complaints you have about your smile, modern cosmetic dentistry has the answer. Even if you have multiple aesthetic problems, we can easily combine treatments to ensure that you love your smile as much as we do.
