How To Feel Positive About Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry’s primary goal is to improve your health and appearance of your smile. At Floss Dental of Houston Midtown, we believe in treating your overall oral health while improving your appearance. Even the fixing small gaps, whitening teeth, or fixing chips, can greatly boost your self-esteem and confidence.
Today’s Cosmetic Dentistry
Remember 10-15 years ago, when people got amalgam (silver colored) or gold fillings? If you opened your mouth, it would be full of dark spots. Today, dentists use select filling materials to closely match your teeth. In some cases, this would be considered cosmetic dentistry.
In fact, the advancement of dental technology today, have enabled our dentist office to perform many procedures that were previously referred out to specialists. This helps our patients to save money and time. Smile makeovers are becoming a quite common all across America.
What Types Of Problems Can Be Corrected?
Our office can help patients with a variety of improvements. For example, do you suffer from:
A chipped tooth
Discolored teeth (Stains or Spots)
All of these problems are not permanent. With dental veneers, whitening, implants, or invisalign, our dentist can help achieve that positive and confident smile.

Here are some cosmetic dentistry terms for you to familiarize yourself with:
INLAYS & ONLAYS
An Indirect Filling, where the material is fabricated at a dental lab before being fitted and bonded to the tooth. Inlay refers to the center of the tooth. Whereas Onlay refers to the outer portion, cusp or biting surface of the tooth.
Ceramic, porcelain or composite material that is bonded to your tooth to improve overall appearance. This can also be a way to correct chips and cracks on a tooth.
An artificial tooth replacement down to the root. This option is a permanent solution compared to dentures, when a tooth replacement is needed.
Tooth colored composite used to repair chipped teeth or other cosmetic flaws. This is the updated replacement to almagam (silver) fillings.
