Chipped, dark and misshapen teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious in social settings. In a situation like this, many people will seek out Dr. Kenneth Kirk to explore the several different options they have.

The cosmetic restoration options your dentist recommends will vary depending on your smile imperfections and your personal preference.

Porcelain dental veneers are thin shells that our Houston Cosmetic & Family Dental Associates team cements onto the face of the teeth to improve their appearance.

If you have a tooth in your smile that has been compromised by past dental work, or if it lacks sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer, Dr. Kenneth Kirk might recommend having that tooth fitted for a porcelain crown.

If the teeth in your smile are only suffering from stains and discoloration, Dr. Kenneth Kirk can identify the underlying cause of the stains and find the right products and treatments that can whiten your smile.

Whitening toothpaste or whitening strips can usually whiten minor surface stains. However, if the teeth in your smile are deeply stained, you will need to employ stronger whitening procedures.

Our Houston Cosmetic & Family Dental Associates team offers a tooth-bleaching procedure that has concentrated whitening agents and professional techniques to safely and effectively whiten your smile.

If you would like to explore the options available for improving your smile, you should call your dentist in Spring, Texas, at 281-580-8848 to schedule an appointment.
