When we place porcelain veneers on your teeth, there’s generally required preparation that typically involves altering your natural enamel. Minimal prep veneers are different. As their name suggests, they require less preparation prior to adding your veneers to your smile. Minimal prep veneers are a prime choice for patients who are good candidates for cosmetic dentistry and restorations. Their benefits to you can include:

  • Improved Preservation – We always want to do everything we can to protect and keep your natural tooth structure and enamel intact. Minimal prep veneers enable your Clear Lake cosmetic dentist to preserve more of the surface area of your teeth and help enhance the bonding of your new veneers. This also reduces the extremely low failure rate of porcelain veneers, which is less than one percent.
  • Less Time in the Dental Chair – When we prepare your smile for regular porcelain veneers, it will require a little more time than the minimal prep veneers. With these types of veneers, there’s also no numbing required, and treatment is relatively easy.
  • Protects Periodontal Health – Because of the specialized technique Dr. Flanagan uses to place your minimal prep veneers, we’re actually reducing the possibility of irritation and inflammation at the gum line.

Do you have what’s called a “gummy” smile? Do your gums cover more of your teeth than you’d like? That’s where crown lengthening comes into play. This cosmetic procedure is generally used to reshape your gums at the base of your teeth to give your smile more of a “toothy” appearance. We can also use crown lengthening to help prepare your teeth for dental restorations. Exposing more of your enamel ensures a better bond and stronger hold for future dental work.

There are numerous dental conditions that can require restorations, but not before crown lengthening is complete. They include:

  • Short teeth
  • Severe tooth decay below the gum line
  • Broken or damaged teeth

As always, we’ll do everything we can to ensure your dental care is minimally-invasive and protective of your natural teeth when completing your crown lengthening. Dr. Flanagan relies on specialized, advanced instruments and tools to expertly recontour your gum tissue. Most patients don’t require any additional care once your procedure is finished. Crown lengthening patients can return to work and eat soft foods the day after treatment. Your gums will most likely be fully healed in about one to two weeks. To learn more about crown lengthening, talk to us, and schedule your complimentary cosmetic consultation today.

Much like our crown lengthening treatment, gum recontouring is very effective at fixing “gummy” smiles or an uneven gum line. It can also help patients who have “long” teeth that they’ve always dreamed of having fixed. Gum recontouring could be the right solution for you. This minimally invasive procedure changes how your teeth look and the shape of your gums for a dramatic, yet natural improvement to your smile.

Your Clear Lake cosmetic dentist might recommend gum recontouring to:

  • Bring the right proportions back to your gum line for a more even smile
  • Remove any excess tissue from your teeth
  • Add more tissue to gums that have receded over time

Dr. Flanagan will use our state-of-the-art technology to trim any excess gum and bone tissue if we determine gum recontouring is the right dental solution for you. The result should be a more balanced, naturally-enhanced smile that gives you a more confident, youthful look. After your treatment is complete, your gums might be somewhat tender or swollen. If so, you can take Ibuprofen and rinse your mouth with salt water or antibacterial mouthwash. This can help you heal faster and keep you comfortable. Schedule your complimentary cosmetic consultation today to learn more details about how gum recontouring works.

Apart from smile whitening in Clear Lake and porcelain veneers, composite bonding is probably the most requested cosmetic procedure at Cindy T. Flanagan, DDS. It’s also the least invasive and one of the easiest treatments to complete. The durable composite material is made to match your natural teeth’s color and shape for a new look that gets you noticed for all the right reasons. Generally, Dr. Flanagan will suggest composite bonding for patients who are interested in:

  • Getting rid of chipped teeth
  • Fixing cracked teeth
  • Addressing decaying teeth
  • Brightening discolored teeth
  • Straightening uneven teeth
  • Strengthening broken teeth

So many patients opt for our composite bonding procedure because it’s quick and pain-free. The results are immediate and are generally accomplished in just one easy office visit. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite bonding is minimally invasive and doesn’t require preparation of your tooth or removal of enamel. Anesthesia isn’t necessary for this treatment that begins with having the surfaces of your tooth slightly roughened before Dr. Flanagan applies a special conditioning liquid. This helps ensure a proper hold when the bonding material adheres to your teeth. With an artful eye, your Clear Lake cosmetic dentist can sculpt and mold the material to create your desired smile.

Tooth recontouring is similar to our gum recontouring technique in that we can reshape your smile, giving it a more natural and even appearance. (You might also look years younger.) Tooth recontouring is a recommended dental solution for patients who want to:

  • Fix teeth that are overlapping
  • Smooth out the edges of irregular or jagged teeth
  • Repair small chips
  • Fill in grooves or pits in your teeth’s precious enamel
  • Correct unwanted “pointy” teeth

These minor imperfections can give you major anxiety about how it looks when you smile. We’re here to tell you that you should never feel that way about your teeth. Tooth recontouring is one of cosmetic dentistry’s most conservative treatments. Patients often opt for this solution because the procedure is quick, painless, and delivers immediate results.

When you and Dr. Flanagan agree that tooth recontouring is the smart choice for your smile, she can get started with your procedure. She’ll expertly and artfully reconstruct or remove small amounts of your enamel. This effectively changes and transforms the length, surface, or shape of your teeth. When you’re able to see the final results, you’ll have a more balanced and beautiful smile than ever before.

Have you been considering or searching for smile whitening in Clear Lake, but you never found the right solution? Have you tried the over-the-counter whitening pastes or strips only to be left unimpressed with the lack of real results? It’s time you talked to the professionals at Cindy T. Flanagan, DDS. We’ve been helping patients like you across the Bay Area whiten and brighten their smiles for decades. Smile whitening is perfect for patients who want to prepare their teeth for a special occasion or even take years off of their appearance.

Trusting your Clear Lake cosmetic dentist to whiten your teeth will give you a boost to your smile and confidence. We have different options for you to choose from, and we’ll be happy to walk you through how each type of whitening treatment works. Dr. Flanagan offers both in-office and take-home tray whitening options for most patients. We find that the KöR Deep Bleaching works the best. This line of smile whitening gels is refrigerated from the moment of manufacturing to when they arrive at our Bay Area dental office. This ensures that the whitening chemicals are at the maximum level of effectiveness. Ask about how we can whiten your teeth up to sixteen shades.
