The shape of your teeth can affect the overall quality of your smile. Problems with the shape and size of certain teeth sometimes create problems for people that make them feel less than comfortable showing off their smile in photos, and in social environments. What can be done about this sort of issue? At our Southlake, TX dental office, we can offer major smile improvements through surprisingly minimal work on problem teeth. Through tooth bonding, we can carefully improve the shape, size, and even the color of a tooth that appears out of place with the rest of your smile.

Our Southlake, TX dental office is proud to help our youngest patients learn how to care for their teeth and gums, while also providing important care to prevent problems from affecting their developing smiles.

If your smile looks different now than it does in older pictures, you may have the effects of dental wear and tear to blame.

Our Southlake, TX dental office is prepared to help individuals who are interested in correcting the changes that wear and tear have caused. Custom porcelain veneers can make teeth look younger and healthier, while also hiding damages and discoloration that can hurt the quality of your smile. (more…)
