A smile that has been rendered unattractive by discolored tooth enamel, minor dental fractures, or chronic dental staining can leave you feeling socially awkward about your appearance. Rather than living with a hampered social life and a diminished sense of self-esteem, you should consider scheduling a cosmetic dental consult at Distinctive Dental Services’s clinic.

After assessing the nature of the imperfections to your teeth Dr. Scott Elrod will help you understand the possible options for enhancing or improving your smile’s appearance.

Dr. Scott Elrod can often remove common dental stains with a dental bleaching treatment. Unfortunately, this option cannot improve the appearance of teeth with physical imperfections like chips, cavities, or noticeable dental fillings.

In a case like this, Dr. Scott Elrod might recommend improving your smile’s appearance by installing dental veneers. They are custom made porcelain shells that will be created in a dental lab to match the faces of each tooth in your smile. The special dental porcelain material will also help prevent dental stains from recurring.

If one or two of the teeth have significant physical defects, Dr. Scott Elrod might need to fully replace the tooth’s enamel layer with a dental crown. It will be made from the same dental grade porcelain material as your dental veneers.

If you live in the Lake Jackson, Texas, area and you have been struggling to deal with an unattractive smile, you should call 979-297-0337 to schedule a consultation at Distinctive Dental Services’s dental offices.
