The art of a smile makeover is more than creating a beautiful smile. It’s the art of customizing that beautiful smile so that it is comfortable, functional, and a strong long-term investment! Smile makeovers can improve the color, shape, size and alignment of all or some of your teeth. Each smile may require a different variety of treatment options to give you the best result possible! Using a smile imaging system, the doctors at El Paso Quality Dentistry can show you what a smile makeover can do for you. We are happy to schedule a free smile consultation!
Veneers & Minimal Prep Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped, crooked, and worn teeth. By placing glass-like ceramic porcelain on the surface of teeth, we can provide you with a strong, bright, straight, and natural looking smile.
Minimal prep veneers are like the contact lenses of porcelain veneers. They require less tooth preparation and for that reason, they can be reversed, and are ideal for those who want to improve their smiles but worry about making the commitment of porcelain veneers. Talk to us about your options.
For more minor cosmetic imperfections such as cracks, fractures, or chips, cosmetic composite bonding may be an ideal and affordable option – especially when your dentist is gifted with an artistic touch the way Dr. McLaughlin and Dr. Sosa are. Special bonding material will be matched to your surrounding teeth and carefully applied for a beautiful, natural appearance.
Smile whitening can take years off your appearance and is a great choice to help you feel confident for any special occasion. The whitening process is effective in most discolored teeth, but darker stains, such as those caused by antibiotics, are more difficult to whiten. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient depending on the structure of the teeth. But don’t worry! Our patients leave happy because our office is committed to and trained in recommending the best option available — just for you!
This is the most popular option in our office and will make your teeth dramatically whiter in one appointment. The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to protect your lips and gums. A gel, designed to be used with a special light, is then applied to your teeth. The process can be done in about an hour, but with proper care, your smile will sparkle for years!
This procedure will make your teeth whiter over a one-to-four week time period. Take-home whitening requires two appointments to custom make and fit whitening trays. The trays are used to apply a whitening solution to be used one or two times per day. Results vary depending on choice of solution and each individual. But with proper care, your smile will look brighter for years to come!
Gum recontouring is a simple procedure in which gums are reshaped for a more pleasing appearance. If your gums are uneven, gum recontouring can make your teeth look more even. And if your gums cover too much of your tooth surface, the procedure can reveal more of your beautiful tooth enamel, making your smile look bigger and brighter.
