Extreme Makeover: Smile Edition

Not long ago, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” was one of the most popular programs on television.

The show was fascinating for a number of reasons. First, the producers selected families and individuals who had compelling stories.

Second, the show showcased the skill and planning abilities of professionals in a number of fields related to home construction and home improvement.

Third, the show demonstrated how quickly someone’s home could be upgraded with enough commitment and determination.

You probably won’t be surprised that millions of people would like to upgrade the appearance of their teeth, too. If you are one of those people, then we want you to know that the team at Antoine Dental Center is committed and determined to give you the smile that you want to see in the mirror.

If you are ready for your own personal “Extreme Makeover,” stop by our dentist office in Houston for a free consultation.

Benefits Of A Great Smile

We probably don’t have to explain the benefits of a great smile. We bet you’ve already seen them.

Even if you don’t have a “perfect” smile, you probably know someone who has a smile that lights up a room. You may be thinking of that person right now.

What stands about that person’s smile?

Straight teeth ✔︎

White teeth ✔︎

Evenly spaced teeth ✔︎

Parallel teeth ✔︎

Aside from the physical aspects of his or her smile, this person likely smiles easily and generally has a good sense of self-confidence.

How Confident Are You?

You would probably like to have that easy-going, light-up-the-room kind of smile, too.

And you can with cosmetic dentistry.

In addition to preventive and restorative care, we offer cosmetic dentistry because we know it can and has improved our patients’ self-esteem.

We’ve had several patients who were so embarrassed by their teeth that they would hide their faces as much as they could. The first time they came to our office, they spoke softly and seemed uncomfortable speaking.

After undergoing cosmetic dentistry, they now walk into our office with confidence. They are comfortable with their teeth, and that shows in how they smile and how they carry themselves.

We want you to have the confidence that comes with a great smile, too.

How You Can Improve Your Smile

There is usually more than one way to solve a problem, and that’s often the case with cosmetic dentistry, too.

Below we will discuss some of the most common things that people don’t like about their smiles along with one or more solutions for those problems.

▶︎ Yellow Or Discolored Teeth

People refer to teeth as “pearly whites” for a reason. Teeth are clean and white when they look healthy and when they look their best.

If your teeth have been stained or lost their luster with age, you can restore your bright smile a couple ways.

The first option is professional teeth whitening. You may have tried commercial teeth whitening products only to be disappointed with the minimal improvement.

With Zoom! whitening, you will see noticeable results in as little as one visit to our office. We also offer Zoom! take-home products if you prefer.

Your second option is veneers. Porcelain veneers are a shell that is bonded to the front of your teeth. This can hide any teeth that are stained or discolored, yet still give you a natural-looking smile.

▶︎ Crooked Teeth

Straight teeth are one of the things that make a smile look great, and you can have straighter teeth a couple ways.

If you have the time, orthodontics are an excellent way to permanently change the appearance of your smile. We also offer short-term orthodontics, like Invisalign, for patients who would rather not wear braces for two years.

Veneers, again, can be used to change your smile. Rather than straightening your teeth, your veneers can be made to give you the appearance of straight teeth. If you are looking for the fastest possible results, then this is the option for you.

▶︎ Chipped Or Broken Teeth

Accidents happen to lots of people. As a result, many teeth are chipped and broken every year. Not only does this leave your teeth more vulnerable to tooth decay, but it can make your smile look odd.

You can fix both problems at the same time with veneers or tooth bonding. You already understand how veneers work. Tooth bonding is great if you just want to change the appearance of one or two teeth. The bonding material looks natural, and it can make your damaged tooth or teeth look complete once again.
