Cosmetic Dentistry is generally known as elective procedures. However, cosmetic dental treatments and restorative procedures cross paths often. Cosmetic dentistry cannot exist without restorative and preventive dentistry. For example, cosmetic dental procedures cannot be completed if decay exists.
An experienced family and cosmetic dentist in Carrollton, TX can remove decay and brighten your smile. Whether you need teeth whitening, dental veneers, laser treatment or dental bonding, Dr. Anthony Dillard can assist you. Cosmetic dentistry takes dental care to a whole new level, with a concentration on enhancing the overall look of your teeth.
When you improve the appearance of your smile, you also boost your confidence. Research has proven that people who have attractive smiles are often considered more personable and friendly, and even more intelligent and successful. A smile is our window to the world, and it’s the first thing that makes an impression on people we meet. Therefore, it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to cosmetic dentists to improve their smiles.
The same composite resin material that is used for a tooth- colored filling can also be used to repair minor smile imperfections such as a chipped tooth or one that is permanently stained or discolored. Dr. Dillard simply takes a small amount of the resin and molds it to reshape or cover a darkened tooth. The material is applied and dried with a special curing light. If necessary, more than one layer can be put on to achieve the ideal shape.
For a smile that is marred by a number of different flaws—chips, cracks, breaks, and discoloration—there are porcelain veneers. These modern dental wonders are paper-thin coverings of dental porcelain that Dr. Dillard designs to restore a beautiful smile. Each veneer is custom crafted to correct the flaw of a specific tooth. Together, they create a beautiful new smile that you’ll confidently want to share.

A gummy smile can compromise the uniformity and overall look of your smile. Fortunately, gum contouring can correct an uneven gum line and deliver a more balanced and symmetrical appearance. Our soft tissue laser technology serves as an efficient, pain-free way to remove excess gum tissue. Dr. Dillard employs a safe, precise, and minimally invasive soft tissue laser to reshape gums.
The laser seals your gums as it removes excess gum tissue. Laser dental treatments eliminate the need for stitches. Generally, patients experience few if any significant side effects from gum contouring, and very little downtime.
