Cosmetic Dentistry San Antonio
Have you ever considered having a cosmetic dentistry service performed, but thought that maybe it would be too expensive or just an exercise in vanity? If so, we have good news. Cosmetic procedures are probably much more affordable than you might think, and having a nicer smile isn’t just about vanity – it’s about boosting your self-esteem and improving the quality of your life overall. That’s why Dr. Williamson is pleased to offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to his patients from throughout the San Antonio, Texas area. Here are some of our cosmetic procedures that can leave you with an absolutely beautiful smile.
If you’ve ever admired the perfect-looking smiles of movie stars and celebrities, you might be surprised to know that you can enjoy a perfect smile too – and it’s all thanks to porcelain veneers. This cosmetic procedure involves Dr. Williamson applying an ultra-thin layer of dental porcelain over the surface of one or more teeth. Not only do veneers effectively repair a variety of minor damage and imperfections; they can also produce an absolutely stunning, perfect-looking smile!
Another cosmetic procedure that effectively repairs teeth with minor damage is dental bonding. The process is similar to veneers, but requires less preparation of the patient’s natural tooth. After Dr. Williamson applies bonding material to a damaged tooth, the end result is a perfect-looking, restored tooth!
There’s a reason why crowns have been routinely used by dentists for so many years. These restorations are not only used to repair teeth that have been badly damaged due to breakage or decay; they are also typically used with dental implants and in dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, it’s important to choose a tooth replacement method to prevent your other teeth from shifting in place, causing a misaligned bite, uneven wear on existing teeth, and a variety of other issues. A dental bridge is often an excellent choice to replace one or more missing teeth.
Another excellent way to replace missing teeth is with a dental implant. This cutting-edge technology involves Dr. Williamson inserting a tiny metal rod into the gum tissue of the patient at the exact location of the missing tooth. Over a period of months, the metal fuses to the bone tissue, creating an artificial tooth root. Once that’s complete, Dr. Williamson will affix a porcelain crown to the top of the implant. The result is a replacement tooth that looks completely natural and lasts for decades.
Laser technology makes gum contouring less invasive, faster, and easier to recover from than ever before. If you’re embarrassed by a “gummy smile,” talk to Dr. Williamson to find out if gum contouring is right for you.
Professional Teeth Whitening
One of the fastest, least expensive ways to brighten any smile is with professional teeth whitening. Dr. Williamson offers his patient in-office Glo Whitening that produces remarkably whiter, brighter teeth in just a single visit to our office, as well as take-home whitening kits.
