Crowns are used in many different dental procedures, from bridges to implants. Crowns are essentially the new fake tooth! We use crowns that are constructed from porcelain, with a keen eye for detail in regards to your existing teeth. We make sure your crowns are always comfortable and look natural with your smile.
Veneers are made of a wafer thin porcelain material that is placed on the front of your tooth to improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Veneers will give your smile its natural appeal again by fixing the following cosmetic dental issues: Chipped teeth, discolored teeth, slightly crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, etc.
If you have any of the issues mentioned above, contact us for a consultation. Veneers are considered a permanent solution for your smile, so once they are applied you can smile with abandon!
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Our teeth go through a lot every day. Think about all the food you eat! Over time, our teeth will lose their natural whiteness and become stained. Foods like coffee, pasta, and wine to name a few, are some of the culprits that stain your teeth. Luckily, you don’t have to live with teeth that are stained for the rest of your life, your Pearland dental office provides safe, effective, and professional teeth whitening!
At Sunlight Dental Group, your health is our top priority, so we avoid using any metal or mercury in our dental procedures. Our crowns and veneers are made of porcelain, and our fillings are made of a composite, tooth-colored material. Our non-metal dental procedures are healthier for you, and look better!
Teeth whitening is a safe and quick procedure. Whitening you teeth is most effective to counteract discoloration due to natural yellowing with age or from our causes like tobacco use, coffee, tea, red wine, and even medications like antibiotics.
We have performed numerous cosmetic teeth whitening and tooth bleaching treatments that typically surpass the expectations of our patients. Patients often ask if teeth whitening is safe; teeth whitening has proven to cause no damage to tooth structure, it will not weaken teeth or cause gum disease. Some patients have reported having sensitivity to hot and cold but typically only last a day or two.
Teeth whitening or bleaching is a dental treatment used to repair or improve the color of the tooth’s enamel. The procedure is non-invasive and simple and there are different methods of whitening teeth discolorations to restore your smile. The most common issue patients want treated in cosmetic dentistry is having whiter teeth. Tooth enamel discoloration can be caused by different issues such as: stained teeth due to eating habits, stained teeth due to medications, fluorosis or the excessive fluoridation of the tooth during its development and because of normal wear of the enamel that protects the tooth.
How does in office bleaching work?
We use a number of state-of-the-art teeth whitening gels that provide tooth bleaching based on your specific needs. Choose between in-office visits where our dentists use prescription-only bleaching solution, or a light-activated bleaching solution known as Zoom—to achieve remarkable teeth whitening results in a short amount of time, or we can provide a custom-made tray holding a clinical-strength, bleaching gel that you wear over your teeth for several hours each night that will also whiten your teeth.
How does take home teeth whitening work?
The treatment of teeth whitening consists of custom made transparent plastic trays for your teeth with a special bleaching solution. During your first appointment, your dentist will take impressions or molds of your teeth to create your custom trays. On your next visit, your trays will be ready to use or be adjusted for a better fit. A special whitening solution is applied on your trays and worn once a day for 30 minutes for seven to ten days depending on the state of your teeth and the desired outcome of the treatment. During the bleaching, teeth sensitivity can be experience due to the chemicals in the whitening solution but will stop once the treatment is done.
The teeth whitening treatment is not permanent, therefore, you have to have the treatment done every few years or more often if your eating habits may cause further discoloration. Your dentist will provide you with care instructions for your teeth and trays during the treatment but good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist are necessary to keep the treatment effective.
