Your teeth are designed to be strong and functional, but sometimes age, damage, or decay can get in the way of both a healthy and attractive smile. From a chipped tooth to a pronounced overbite, most of us have some sort of dental issue we'd like to improve, and with the many cosmetic dentistry options offered by dentist Drs. Marvin and Sarah Olim in Katy, TX, you can find a solution that keeps you smiling at Olim and Associates.
If your teeth are suffering from cracks, gaps or chips, dental bonding can conceal the damage with a tooth-colored composite. Cured to become strong and durable, dental bonding restores both the function and look of your teeth.
Age, frequent drinking of coffee or wine, or smoking can all dim the brightness of your smile. While over-the-counter whitening kits with strips, trays, or brush on liquids can offer some whitening, for severely stained teeth a professional whitening from your dentist at our Katy, TX office is the most effective way to whiten your smile, with more pronounced and longer-lasting results.
If you have unevenly spaced or crooked teeth, veneers are an option for making your smile appear straighter. Your dentist will customize your veneers to fit comfortably over your natural teeth and use an adhesive to keep them firmly in place. Veneers are not only inconspicuous, but they are fully functional and require no removal for eating or cleaning.
For teeth that are missing entirely or require removal due to damage or decay, dental implants can fill the gap and improve both the health and appearance of your teeth. Dental implants consist of a screw-like post that serves as the root of an artificial tooth. Permanent and natural-looking, dental implants are a more convenient alternative to dentures.
If you have a severely damaged tooth, your dentist can use a crown to protect your tooth and hide the flaws. Crowns are shaped and tinted to blend in with your natural tooth so they are undetectable.
Braces are a standby for straightening teeth and correcting over or underbites. Braces take time to work, but the results are impressive and long-lasting. At our Katy, TX office, your dentist can fit both teens and adults with braces, with traditional and clear options.
