A successful cosmetic smile makeover
Is your smile looking a little dark or dingy? Removing those stains built up from smoking, drinking dark beverages, or just daily life can make you look more vibrant and years younger.
At Gregory Allen Kerbel, DDS, we offer two professional teeth-whitening solutions by Zoom.
If you want fast results, our in-office system is the way to go. We apply a light-activated gel that makes your teeth up to eight shades whiter in less than an hour.
If you’d rather whiten your teeth on your own schedule, you are a candidate for a take-home system. We will create custom trays perfectly fitted to your teeth and gums — this ensures the gel is applied evenly, and doesn’t leak onto your sensitive soft tissues. We will send you home with a supply of professional-strength gel and precise instructions for getting the brilliant smile you crave.
There are many teeth-whitening products available at the drugstore, but these are just not as effective. They contain much less active ingredient, are not custom fitted, and are not supervised by a dentist. For truly dazzling results, contact Gregory Allen Kerbel, DDS.
Dental veneers are practically synonymous with “Hollywood smile.” In fact, they were invented by a California dentist to make actors’ teeth look flawless on screen and are still popular with entertainers and other celebrities today.
Of course, you don’t have to live in Hollywood to have a showstopping smile.
At Gregory Allen Kerbel, DDS, we offer high-quality custom porcelain veneers. A veneer is a very thin, tooth-colored shell that is bonded to the front of the tooth. It hides a variety of dental flaws: chips, stains, small gaps, wear and tear, and even minor alignment issues. You can get veneers on some of your teeth or all of them, depending on your needs. While cosmetic, they offer the added benefit of strengthening your pearly whites.
Veneers are durable and long-lasting. We will remove a small amount of enamel before application, then adhere your custom-made veneer to the tooth. With proper care, veneers can keep your smile stunning for decades.
Tooth bonding is proof that even simple fixes can offer gorgeous results. We apply a composite resin material, perfectly matched to your enamel color, to the surface of the tooth. We then mold and shape the resin and harden it using a special light.
The tooth bonding procedure can hide many of the same issues as dental veneers: minor cracks and chips, stains, small gaps, worn-down teeth.
It typically requires just one dental visit and is painless — no anesthesia required! Though, as always, we are happy to offer dental sedation options if you are nervous.
Teeth Contouring and Gummy Smile Treatment
Teeth contouring is a simple and painless procedure that involves removing small amounts of your enamel to make a tooth smaller or shorter, alter its shape, or remove minor defects like chips.
The teeth contouring process is relatively inexpensive and fast, generally requiring only one dental visit. Because only the enamel is touched, anesthesia is not required.
If you think your teeth appear too short or your gums too prominent, we can actually lift and reshape your gumline for a perfectly balanced smile.
Is your smile crooked or misaligned? With Texas-made ClearCorrect, we can fix your teeth without unsightly metal braces. The ClearCorrect system uses custom-crafted clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into proper position. The aligners are totally removable for easy eating and cleaning, and they are virtually invisible while you are wearing them. This makes ClearCorrect an excellent choice for adults looking to straighten their smiles discreetly.
