Our smiles matter, probably more than we realize. Volumes of research confirm the influential role of smiles on our relationships and our self-esteem. If you’re confident, then you smile more. If you smile more, then you feel more confident. This is known as a positive feedback loop. They both increase the other in a repeating cycle.

But what if you don’t want to flash your smile because you’re embarrassed by bad teeth? It becomes a psychological short-circuit, with effects that may ripple through your life. However, a growing range of cosmetic dentistry services can open doors for anyone to enjoy a stunning new smile. Dr. Alex Rouse, DDS, and his team are incredibly passionate about enhancing smiles. They can bring you the best in modern cosmetic dentistry services in Lucas, TX.

About Cosmetic Dentistry Services in Lucas, TX

Woman learning about cosmetic dentistry services in Lucas, TXDespite the name, cosmetic dentistry services are not always what people think. People associate it with cosmetic surgery and believe it’s for superficial alterations. While there are such options in cosmetic dentistry, most of the services we offer are meant to help with severe dental problems. For example, anytime a cracked tooth is repaired or a missing tooth fitted for a false one, it’s a form of cosmetic dentistry. These procedures help restore normal function to your teeth and also supply a degree of confidence in how you look.

Some common reasons people undergo cosmetic dental treatments include:

  • Brightening stained or discolored teeth
  • Repairing cracks or fractures
  • Filling gaps between teeth
  • To correct overcrowding
  • Reshaping teeth
  • Replacing old metallic restorations, such as fillings and crowns

Common Cosmetic Dentistry Services We Offer

Composite Fillings

Cavities, chips, and fractures occur on any tooth surface throughout the mouth. Composite fillings material provides a versatile solution to many common problems. When blended into a prepared area, the composite polishes to a smooth, undetectable surface.

Onlays

Teeth rarely fracture in an entirely predictable way. Sometimes a break is too big for a filling, but not big enough for a crown. Porcelain onlays provide an excellent solution for teeth that need extra reinforcement without being covered entirely. Bonded into a place, they provide years of natural feel, function, and esthetics.

Porcelain Crowns

Damaged teeth might seem hopeless, but there’s often still a solid foundation that leaves you with options. A dental crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. And with modern porcelains, you’ll also have a difficult time trying to find where the crown ends and the tooth starts.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers provide an artist’s touch to your smile. Custom-crafted, these ultra-thin porcelain creations work in magical ways. Regardless of your vision for your smile, chances are veneers offer an answer. When today’s modern materials meet our passion for cosmetic excellence, you’ll be amazed at what you see smiling back at you in the mirror.
