Have you ever dreamed about having a smile that turns heads? Are you sick of hiding your mouth in photographs and ready to feel confident about your appearance? Cosmetic dentistry can create the flaw-free teeth you have in mind, and there’s no better dentist to turn to for help here in the Plano area than Dr. Cheung. Like our name suggests, we’re very passionate about providing you with a self-image that truly dazzles, and our available menu of cosmetic services can create all sorts of smile improvements. To get started with an initial consultation, please contact Esthetic Image Dentistry today.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your smile’s various cosmetic flaws, porcelain veneers can help you get a fresh start all at once. These customized restorations are designed to be thin enough to fit over the visible surfaces of teeth and hide their appearance from view behind a new, lifelike replacement. Veneers are flaw-free, very durable, and even resistant to staining over time.
Repairing your teeth with restorative work shouldn’t have to result in dark, unnatural-looking additions to your smile. That’s why Dr. Cheung primarily offers metal-free restorations that are a beautiful match for natural tooth enamel. They even reflect light in the same way. In addition to being attractive, these restorations are strong, comfortable, and 100% biocompatible, which means that even patients with strong allergies to previous restorative work can enjoy them.
If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. The dentist can apply liquid composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth’s color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.
Invisalign consists of custom, clear acrylic aligners designed to move teeth into optimal position by use of pressure. With 3D imaging technology, Dr. Cheung will design your Invisalign treatment plan, then our certified Invisalign lab will fabricate your aligners. Wear each aligner for about two weeks, then move to the next in your series. Periodic checkups will allow Dr. Cheung to inspect your progress. In 6-18 months, your ideal smile could be a reality.
Zoom! Whitening can brighten your teeth dramatically – up to 10 shades - in about an hour. Across the globe, busy, image-conscious people have relied on Zoom! for fast teeth whitening.
Dr. Cheung uses the patented Zoom! gel, activated with a special low-heat lamp, to whisk away tooth stains. To maintain your bright, new smile forever, we’ll send you home with custom-fitted mouth trays and home bleaching gel. Simply use the home kit whenever your smile needs a little boost.
While patients in a hurry can greatly benefit from our in-office whitening, others may prefer to achieve more gradual results. In these cases, Dr. Cheung will be happy to provide an Opalescence take-home whitening kit. This kit is composed of custom-made oral trays and professional-strength bleaching gel, and it should be worn every day. Most patients see improvement after just one night of use, with the most dramatic changes occurring after a couple of weeks.
For patients who have excessive gum tissue, teeth can appear stubby. What you may not know is that beneath that overgrown soft tissue, your teeth are just waiting to be revealed! If you have a gummy smile, we may recommend a gum lift, otherwise known as a gingivectomy.
This simple cosmetic procedure can be performed with a soft tissue laser, Electrosurge, or traditional surgery. We'll talk with you about your options and what to expect during the procedure, then discuss the outcome you want to achieve. The day of your procedure, we'll mark your gum tissue, make sure that you're comfortable with anesthesia or sedation, and then precisely remove the excess soft tissue. After a brief recovery, your new smile will look bold, beautiful, and better than you thought possible!
Committing to a smile makeover can be an intimidating decision. After all, what if you end up not liking the results? At Esthetic Image Dentistry, we want you to feel 100% confident about your cosmetic transformation, which is why we enjoy giving patients a peek into the future with our virtual smile design technology. All we need is a photo of you with your teeth showing, and Dr. Cheung can alter the image in order to show you the effects of various treatment options.
A beautiful smile can make a big difference in your everyday confidence, but wrinkles and fine lines surrounding it often tend to hamper the effect. Thankfully, Dr. Cheung can help by providing revitalizing Botox or Juvederm treatment to create a smoother, more youthful facial appearance for patients in need.
