When it comes to addressing several cosmetic flaws within your smile with one treatment, veneers in Garland are it. This treatment can improve the appearance of a single tooth, several teeth, or your entire smile depending on your needs. The veneers themselves are thin, durable sheaths that are designed to fit over the visible surface of teeth to conceal discoloration, slight misalignment, and damage. They’re custom-shaded to look virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and with the proper maintenance, they can last for up to 25 years.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
In the past, dentists would use metal cavity fillings and crowns to restore and strengthen teeth. While they were durable, they lacked in the aesthetic department and often resulted in uncomfortable side-effects like dental discoloration and sensitivity. Dr. Mason utilizes gentle, customizable materials like zirconia, porcelain, and composite resin to restore teeth, all while maintaining the original appearance of your smile.
Direct bonding is a fast, cost-effective way to repair chipped or broken teeth, as well as gaps and severe discoloration. Using the same material as we do for cavity fillings (composite resin), Dr. Mason can sculpt the missing portion of your tooth and fuse it with your natural enamel. The resin will be custom-shaded and texturized to match the appearance of your existing dental enamel and look and function like natural.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Are you tired of investing in store-bought teeth whitening products that don’t seem to provide you with the bright, lasting results that the packaging promises? Dr. Mason offers convenient at-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments that can provide you with optimal results within either an hour-long appointment or two weeks. Plus, we only use ingredients that have been proven to be both safe and effective to use on your teeth.
If you have several smile imperfections that you’d like to address that may require multiple treatments, you may benefit from planning a full smile makeover with our team. During a consultation, Dr. Mason will discuss your goals with you and what you find attractive in a smile. Based on your desires, budget, and timeline, we’ll outline a custom-tailored plan to transform your smile that will include two or more of our cosmetic or restorative procedures.

Am I Too Old for Cosmetic Dentistry?
After years of laughing, eating, talking, and smiling, it’s not uncommon for your teeth to look a little worn or lackluster. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry doesn’t have an upper age limit! Naturally, we’ll have to make sure you’re free of oral health issues like cavities, gum disease, and enamel erosion before giving you the green light for some cosmetic services, but overall, you can never be too old to have a beautiful smile.
Is My Child Too Young for Cosmetic Dentistry?
As a parent, you do everything you can to protect your little one’s precious smile, but life happens! Whether they’ve chipped a tooth while learning to walk or indulged in too many staining sodas during high school, cosmetic dentistry may be able to help. While not every cosmetic dental service is a good choice for children and teens, options like teeth whitening and direct bonding are often good options as long as their smiles are healthy.
Will Improving My Smile Take a Long Time?
How long it takes to achieve the smile of your dreams will depend almost entirely on which treatment(s) you choose. For instance, quick and easy options like teeth whitening and direct bonding can often be completed in a single appointment. On the other hand, services like veneers and metal-free restorations may take a few weeks to custom-craft and place. When you visit us for a consultation, we’ll walk you through every step of getting the treatment you’re interested in and give you an estimated timeframe.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive?
Cosmetic dentistry is rarely covered by dental insurance, which makes many patients apprehensive about the potential cost. The cost of cosmetic dentistry varies widely between services and the extent of the issue being fixed. We offer several different cosmetic treatments at different price points so you can improve your smile without breaking the bank! Plus, with flexible financing through CareCredit, you can break up the cost of your new smile into smaller, more manageable monthly payments.
