Here in Allen, Dr. Moreland is happy to offer teeth whitening as the perfect solution for these concerns. If you’re in need of fast results, our in-office whitening procedure creates dramatic changes in just an hour-long appointment. For more gradual changes, our customized take-home kits can be used on your own schedule to make beautiful improvements.
Virtually everyone experiences a cavity at one point or another. Thankfully, placing a filling to correct the damage is a simple and effective procedure. Better yet, our tooth-colored fillings at Southern Star Dental offer patients aesthetic benefits as well! Unlike the traditional amalgam counterparts, tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with your natural enamel. They’re also more conservative, which means that Dr. Moreland is able to preserve more of your original tooth’s structure. You won’t even have to worry about sensitivity caused by changes in temperature thanks to the comfortable composite resin material.
Are you ready for a complete smile makeover? Porcelain veneers might be the best choice. These thin, customized sheaths of dental porcelain are designed to fit directly over your natural teeth, hiding chips, stains, crooked teeth, worn teeth, gaps, and other aesthetic flaws from view under a newly flawless appearance. Dr. Moreland can even modify the shape and size of certain teeth depending on your preferences with veneers, and she’ll work with amazing dental laboratories to create gorgeous results you’re sure to be impressed by.
The veneers process usually requires two to three appointments at our Allen, TX practice. After we’ve determined that veneers are the right cosmetic choice for your smile, Dr. Moreland will begin by removing a small amount of your natural tooth enamel to make room. Our team will take impressions, as well as attach a similar temporary veneer to protect your altered teeth. Once the dental lab has created the finished veneer and sent it back to us, Dr. Moreland will invite you back to our office so she can make adjustments and securely bond it in place.
Porcelain veneers are often ideal for patients who want to make minor orthodontic changes to their smile without the need for metal braces. They’re also more resistant against staining than natural enamel, which allows patients to maintain their beautifully improved look even longer.
When it comes to rebuilding your smile, patients should never have to choose between what’s best for their health and what’s best for their self-confidence. Instead, they can have the best of both worlds with our all-ceramic crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, and other restorations in Allen, TX. These materials are high in quality and completely lifelike in both appearance and function. They’re also more biocompatible for patients who may have allergies or sensitivities to metallic materials.
