Is Your Smile Photo-Ready for Thanksgiving?

Will you be visiting with lots of friends and family this Thanksgiving? Thanksgiving is a magical time of the year. Old friends from your school years are often back in town. Then your whole family is gathered under one roof. (For better, or for worse.) Whether the turkey comes out cooked just right, or ends up a little burnt, once thing is certain: there will be lots of photos taken.

How do you smile for a photo? Do you kind of smirk? Maybe you leave your face as a picture of seriousness. But if you are truly feeling happy when the photo is taken, do you have the courage to smile widely and show-off your teeth? The answer for many Americans is that they aren’t. Many people feel embarrassed about some aspect of their smile.

The three most common reasons we hear for people being embraced to smile are that they are embarrassed about yellow teeth; or they are embarrassed about missing teeth; or they are embarrassed about crooked teeth. At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we want to give all of our valued patients a good reason to smile. Luckily, we have experience correcting smiles and giving people the self-confidence they need to smile once more.

In today’s post of our dental health blog, we’re going to detail some of the smile-repair services which we offer in our comfortable and modern office. We can remove years worth of stains and discoloration with Zoom! teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. We can fill a gap in your smile through the use of dental implants and/or dental bridges. We can even straighten your teeth with the latest in orthodontic technology.

Remove Stains from Your Teeth with Teeth Whitening and Dental Veneers

Professional teeth whitening has become a huge industry in this country. With good reason, tons of foods, drinks, and lifestyle factors can leave your teeth stained and discolored. If you’re willing to wait for results and risk irritating your gums, you could try one of the host of teeth whitening products available in stores. But if you want results quickly, you need professional teeth whitening. At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we offer the Zoom! teeth whitening system. We can actually have your teeth looking up to ten shades whiter in just one one-hour treatment at our office.

But some teeth just won’t respond to professional teeth whitening. This is generally caused by a genetic condition or as a side-effect of medicine you may be prescribed. But we’ve got you covered in those instances as well. We can completely transform your smile, and leave it looking white as snow with porcelain veneers. Veneers are also a great way to cover other flaws in your smile. We can use them to cover cracks in teeth, chips in teeth, or even use them to hide misaligned teeth.

Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants or Dental Bridges

In addition to a variety of negative health consequences, missing teeth simply look bad. They can leave you feeling ashamed, or afraid that you look uneducated. But a missing tooth is not something that has to last forever. At the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, we have advanced training in replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are actually as strong as the natural roots of your teeth. We use a dental implant to support a crown, denture, or bridge. Our dental implant restorations look incredibly lifelike; with a dental implant you’ll have all the confidence you need to smile again.

Straighten Crooked Teeth with Orthodontics

The Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX, is one of the few dental offices in the area to offer a wide-range of orthodontic treatments. Our dentists have received a tremendous amount of advanced training in orthodontics; that means you don’t have to worry about visiting separate offices for your dentist and orthodontist appointments. We are skilled at installing braces on both adults and teenagers. We offer a wide range of options for braces; traditional wire braces, clear braces, and ceramic braces. We can have your teeth straightened and looking Hollywood quality.
