How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help With a Variety of Dental Issues

Cracked teeth. Missing teeth. Crooked, overlapping, unevenly spaced, or stained teeth. These common dental issues adversely affect your dental health, your overall health, and undoubtedly, your self-confidence. Here at Kerry M. Bloom, DDS, in Houston, we’re committed to keeping your teeth and mouth healthy, while providing you with the most advanced technologies and treatments to correct an array of cosmetic dental issues.

Improving the appearance and function of your teeth only scratches the surface of how cosmetic dentistry can help with a variety of dental issues. Dr. Bloom discusses some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments he offers to men and women who wish to enhance their smiles.

Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures don’t involve surgery

Perhaps you’ve shied away from scheduling a consultation to enhance the overall appearance of your teeth, or correct a nagging problem, because you don’t want to face a painful surgical procedure. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of nonsurgical procedures that can leave your mouth looking brighter and your self-esteem feeling refreshed. For more than 40 years, Dr. Bloom has transformed smiles with nonsurgical cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as:

If you have a less-than-perfect smile, and you don’t need major dental work, these nonsurgical cosmetic dental treatments offer a significant improvement with little discomfort, pain, or recovery time — if any. In fact, these easy cosmetic procedures can correct or improve numerous dental conditions including:

In many cases, there may be more than one treatment that addresses your concerns, so Dr. Bloom recommends the ones that will work best for you. Sometimes you need just one type of cosmetic treatment to get an improved smile; other times, combining a couple of treatments, such as Invisalign followed by Zoom teeth whitening, does the trick.

Cosmetic dentistry can also provide partial and full mouth restorations

If your dental concerns go beyond whitening or straightening your teeth, Dr. Bloom offers a full range of restorative procedures, or “smile makeovers.” For missing teeth or decayed teeth, he prepares your mouth for a complete smile makeover through procedures that include root canals, gum contouring, or tooth extractions.

Once he addresses any underlying oral health issues you may have, Dr. Bloom restores your mouth through a customized combination of cosmetic treatments to create a smile you’re confident showing to the world.

Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth

Dental implants are the closest thing to having all your natural teeth. If you’re missing a tooth, or you need one extracted because of decay, Dr. Bloom custom-designs dental implants that look and function so much like natural teeth, nobody will be able to tell the difference.

Implants do require oral surgery to install an artificial, titanium “root” for your new tooth. The root fuses to your existing jawbone, so it becomes a permanent part of your mouth and provides a strong, stable base for your newly created custom crown — the part of the tooth everyone will see.

Whatever cosmetic treatment is right for you, the goal is simple: to help you love your smile, while promoting optimal health for your teeth and gums. After all, the most beautiful smiles are the healthiest ones!

If you’ve always wanted a more perfect smile, don’t wait to learn more about our extensive line of cosmetic dentistry treatments. Dr. Bloom is an expert in his field and has helped many people feel more self-assured about their teeth. Will you be next?

While you can buy products that whiten your teeth at home, only few of these produce noticeable results, and then only with repeated use. Your dentist can give you dramatically whiter teeth in a single session, using professional-strength products.
