Cosmetic Dentistry in San Antonio, TX

At Smile Land Family Dental, we want our cosmetic dental treatments to improve the look of your smile and support your oral health. Our cosmetic dentist office takes a patient-focused approach to care. We will consider your goals, budget, and health before any treatment. We can help create a dream smile you can be proud of showing.

Our cosmetic services can change the shape, shade, and alignment of your teeth. The cosmetic dental treatments at our office include teeth whitening, clear aligners, and dental veneers.

Teeth Whitening

A professional teeth whitening treatment can remove stains because of foods and drinks, tobacco use, and aging. Dr. Abazid offers a treatment unlike store-bought strips or toothpaste. Professional whitening can lift stains from the tooth enamel and increase the brightness of teeth by many shades.

We will recommend professional whitening treatment for patients with healthy teeth who want a brighter smile. In-office whitening can deliver results in just one office visit.

Additionally, if you have deep tooth stains or sensitive teeth, we can recommend veneers or crowns. These treatments can cover discolored teeth that whitening procedures can’t fix.

Clear Aligners

SureSmile is a clear aligner system. We use a series of aligners to shift teeth into a straighter position. Compared to traditional metal braces, SureSmile is more comfortable and easier to clean.

The clear SureSmile aligners are also removable. Because they are removable, you can eat hard or crunchy foods, and can easily brush and floss your teeth and gums. SureSmile also takes less time to straighten teeth than metal braces.

SureSmile is a great option for teens and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. This treatment helps patients discreetly straighten their smiles. SureSmile offers more economical and efficient treatment than other clear aligner treatments as well.

Dental Veneers

Like teeth whitening treatments, porcelain veneers can also address tooth stains. However, veneers benefit patients with tough tooth stains. These stains do not react to whitening treatments. Covering discolored teeth with a lighter veneer can create a brighter smile.

Veneers can cover one or more teeth in the smile zone. Shell-like veneers can cover slightly crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, and tooth stains. We color-match veneers and ensure they are the correct shape before we bond them to the front of the teeth. Dr. Abazid recommends veneers for one or two crooked teeth, or stained teeth that don’t respond to teeth whitening.

What is a Smile Makeover?

When considering cosmetic dental care, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you cover your teeth when you smile?
  • Are you frustrated with small cosmetic imperfections?
  • Do your teeth impact your confidence?

If you answered yes to these questions, a smile makeover may be right for you. A smile makeover uses multiple cosmetic dental treatments to change the smile’s appearance. We often recommend smile makeovers to address several cosmetic problems.

To begin the smile makeover process, we will examine your teeth and gums. Our office may take X-rays to ensure you don’t have any problems we can’t see with a visual exam. We will also consider your cosmetic goals to determine the best treatments for your goals.

An example of a smile makeover could include treatment with clear aligners and whitening treatment. Straightening teeth before whitening them ensures even treatment. We carefully consider the order of each cosmetic treatment while creating a custom plan for each patient.

A smile makeover aims to create a straight and bright smile. We only recommend a smile makeover if you are in good oral health. After you get general and restorative care, you can become a candidate for cosmetic treatment and smile makeovers.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Do you want to learn more about cosmetic dentistry? Cosmetic dentistry is a dental branch that focuses on improving the look of the teeth and gums. Our treatments, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and SureSmile clear aligners, create brighter and straighter smiles. Read the following answers to commonly asked questions to learn more.

Why should I see a cosmetic dentist?

Cosmetic dentists help patients meet their aesthetic goals. These dentists want to help you enhance the look of your smile. They have an aesthetic eye and experience to create results that blend in seamlessly. A cosmetic dentist will consider several factors before treatment:

  • Your facial structure
  • Tooth size
  • The shape of your teeth

Problems like stained and damaged teeth can impact your self-confidence. Fixing problem teeth can give you the confidence boost you are looking for.

What is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment?

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment because it can remove years of tooth stains in just one appointment. Professional whitening treatments also provide more effective and lasting results than store-bought options.

For many patients, teeth whitening treatment can improve their confidence. Because of fast results, teeth whitening is a great option before any upcoming event. We can touch up your smile before a birthday, wedding, or graduation in no time.

Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

We recommend cosmetic dental care if you are in good oral health and want to address cosmetic imperfections. You can benefit from treatment if you have crooked, damaged, and stained teeth.

We will also ensure that you are healthy before cosmetic care. Our office can treat tooth decay and gum disease before we provide cosmetic dental treatments. Once you are healthy, we can provide cosmetic care.

Is cosmetic dentistry painful?

Most cosmetic dental treatments are not painful. We make sure that you don’t feel sensitivity or discomfort during your cosmetic treatment. For example, we recommend less powerful treatments if you feel sensitivity from whitening treatments. During whitening treatment, we will cover your gums to combat sensitivity.

We may also numb your mouth for veneers. You will not feel pain as we prepare your teeth for custom veneers.

Treatments like clear aligners are also less painful than braces. The aligners are custom-made to prevent gum irritation. You may also feel discomfort as you adjust to each new aligner. However, this will fade within a few weeks as your teeth shift into position.

Does insurance cover cosmetic dental care?

Insurance will only cover medically necessary treatments. However, our office accepts CareCredit, Aetna, CignaDental, DentaQuest, MCNADental, and TMHP. We also accept other financial and insurance plans for dental care. This can help make your cosmetic treatment more affordable.
