Cosmetic Dentistry Midland, TX

Is it time for a smile makeover? Look at your teeth in the mirror. Is there anything you wish you could change? Maybe there are some cracks that are making it difficult to smile, or maybe your teeth just aren’t as dazzling as you’d like.

No matter how big or small the change, Dr. Courter will listen carefully to what you want. He will then create a custom treatment plan to build the beautiful smile of your dreams.

Cosmetic dentistry allows patients to receive the beautiful smile they are looking for. For instance, straightening crooked and misaligned teeth can help fight off dental infections. This is because it is easier for harmful bacteria to hide between crooked teeth that are difficult to clean.

Even whitening the tooth enamel motivates patients to keep up with their oral health routine to maintain their results. Cosmetic dentistry by Dr. Michael Courter and our Midland dental team can enhance the look and health of your teeth and gums.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services at The Dental Office of Michael C. Courter, D.D.S.

Our cosmetic dental services create brighter and more balanced smiles. They are some of our most popular dental services in Midland. Our cosmetic dental treatments improve the look of your smile and the overall health of your mouth.

Clear Aligners

ClearCorrect® uses transparent and discreet aligners to straighten misaligned and crooked teeth. The aligners are removable so you can clean them often and don’t have to worry about what you eat. We recommend ClearCorrect to teens and adults with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns.

The process is easy. You will switch-out each pair of clear aligners for a new pair every few weeks to gradually realign your teeth. To learn more about our ClearCorrect® treatment plan, visit Clear braces.

Porcelain Veneers

Why get multiple cosmetic treatments when it may just take one? Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells we use to cover the teeth and correct multiple flaws at once. They often restore the look of cracked, stained, worn down, misaligned, or irregularly shaped teeth.

Porcelain is highly stain-resistant, and it mimics the way your natural teeth reflect the light. Because of this, porcelain veneers are often the perfect choice for helping your damaged smile look like new. Porcelain veneers are also a permanent cosmetic option that can last for many years with the right care. To learn more about our porcelain veneers treatments, visit Porcelain veneers.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you only want to make a slight correction, such as repairing a single chipped tooth, consider cosmetic bonding. Tooth bonding uses a malleable biocompatible compound to cover cosmetic imperfections. We can repair chips, cracks, fractures, and even tooth stains using dental bonding.

Dr. Courter will place a tooth-colored composite resin on your teeth. He will shape the resin to make it look like your natural tooth. Then, he will harden it using a special light that makes it bond with the enamel in the process.

Bonding is a versatile treatment that can hide minor cracks, brighten stained teeth, close small spaces, and lengthen or otherwise change the shape of your teeth. Dr. Courter will color-match bonded teeth to the shade of real teeth so it easily blends in with the rest of your smile. To learn more about our cosmetic dental bonding service, visit Teeth bonding.

Teeth Whitening

Who doesn’t want a whiter smile? While there are plenty of products that promise to make your teeth brighter, whitening is safer and more effective when left to a professional. We offer at-home whitening kits that let you improve your pearly whites on your own time.

Each kit comes with custom-fitted trays as well as a whitening solution that’s stronger than anything you can find at the store. Our teeth whitening kits can help remove stains above and below the surface of your enamel. In many cases, you’ll be able to enjoy a smile that’s several shades whiter after just two weeks!

Digital Imaging / Smile Design

One problem that can make patients reluctant to have a cosmetic procedure is not knowing how the final results will turn out. Thanks to digital imaging, we can show you your improved smile after whitening, bonding, or other procedures. This sets realistic expectations beforehand, and gives you a great picture of what your results may look like. These images will also help Dr. Courter while customizing your treatment so that it looks as natural as possible.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Dentists use crowns and other restorations to repair a badly decayed or injured tooth. However, because they often consist of metal, they tend to stick out and might make you feel self-conscious while smiling. That’s why Dr. Courter offers metal-free restorations that instead use tooth-colored materials.

These restorations are versatile and he can shape and shade them to match the rest of your teeth. Metal-free dental restorations consist of tooth-colored materials such as ceramics, composite resins, or porcelain. These restorations look more natural, are biocompatible, and strong. They are also best for patients who have metal allergies or sensitivities.

Cosmetic Dental FAQs

Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about cosmetic dental care here.

How does dental bonding compare to porcelain veneers?

Tooth bonding is similar to treatment with dental veneers because both treatments address discolored or injured teeth. Bonding and veneers also use dental cement that helps them bond to the tooth enamel.

However, dental veneers are permanent and meant to cover only the front of teeth. Dental bonding treatment is more economical and best for smaller chips or breaks in the tooth enamel.

Can I whiten dental crowns, veneers, or bonded teeth?

No, professional teeth whitening treatment can only brighten natural teeth. However, if you have old or dull cosmetic restorations, we can plan new ones for you. Dental crowns, porcelain veneers, and tooth bonding treatments are all treatments that can brighten your teeth. However, these treatments cannot get whiter after the dentist places them.

How do clear braces compare to metal braces?

ClearCorrect uses removable plastic aligners to straighten the teeth, while traditional braces use metal wires and brackets. Clear aligners are removable and allow patients to eat and brush their teeth without hindrance. Metal braces often come with dietary restrictions and the orthodontist needs to frequently adjust them at routine visits. This means less dental visits with clear aligners.

What do I do if my teeth resist whitening treatment?

Sometimes, patients can have deep stains that are resistant to professional whitening treatments. An injury or wear to the teeth cause these stains, which can reveal the layer underneath the enamel called dentin. Your cosmetic dentist can use dental bonding and porcelain veneers to cover these teeth and brighten them.
