Teeth Whitening Options
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure. Dental whitening can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile. Whitening is a popular cosmetic choice because it is safe, easy, and affordable.
If you are a candidate for whitening we offer options to whiten your smile: custom take home whitening trays and we offer Optic White in office whitening or Opalescence Boost in office whitening.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers as an alternative, there is no reason to put up with gaps between your teeth, teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. A veneer placed on top of your teeth can help you achieve a beautiful smile! When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Because they are thin, light can shine through them and they take on the natural color of the underlying tooth. With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for years to come. Dr. Pickett will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Bonding can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged, and is an alternative to veneers. The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. This is an excellent option for adolescents and teenagers who have completed orthodontic treatment and need cosmetic correction. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before repair is needed.
Pickett Dentistry at Alden Bridge is proud to be a trusted Invisalign provider in The Woodlands area. If you have a goal of achieving straighter, healthier teeth and a more beautiful smile, Dr. Pickett can prescribe Invisalign (clear braces) as part of your treatment plan. Invisalign is a common cosmetic treatment used to address how teeth function together. Clear aligners (Invisalign) use a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. They are the invisible way to straighten teeth without braces. As a result, patients experience better dental comfort and a more beautiful, youthful-looking smile.
Invisalign offers many benefits to our dental patients. Since they are clear, they are hard to notice and will not detract from the appearance and beauty of your smile. Additionally, Invisalign is much more comfortable and gentler than traditional braces so patients generally have a more positive experience. Patients enjoy easier chewing and do not have to adhere to diet restrictions during treatment since the aligners can be removed as needed.
