Our dentist office specializes in cosmetic dentistry in Dallas, TX to help you get a beautiful, white smile. Cosmetic dentistry covers a variety of procedures that improve the look and feel of your teeth. Once you have had a cosmetic procedure performed, you will have a boost of confidence and feel good about your smile.
Veneers are thin shells that cover the surface of your teeth. They can hide many imperfections and flaws on your teeth, such as stains and discoloration, cracks and chips, misshapen and uneven teeth, and gaps between your teeth. If you want veneers on one or just a few teeth, Dr. Thompson will help you match the color of your veneers to your natural teeth color. If you want veneers to cover your stained teeth, you can choose how white you want your veneers to be. Our veneers are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth and can last decades with proper care. We offer several types of veneers to suit your needs, including porcelain veneers, resin veneers, and Lumineers, a noninvasive, two-visit process.
We specialize in both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options to give you the smile you have always desired. Our custom dental trays provide you with a unique fit to personalize the whitening experience and deliver the best results. Our in-office treatments can be done as a one-time treatment or a series of treatments depending on your needs.
Professional teeth whitening is not only safe, but it is also an effective way to lift and remove stains from your teeth. Don’t settle for over-the-counter whitening, which often irritates gums, makes teeth sensitive, and does not produce dramatic results like professional whitening does.
Gummy Smile Treatment
If you are unhappy with your smile because it appears “gummy,” don’t panic. Our team can help you. We offer treatment options to help reshape and recontour your gums so they no longer cover too much of your teeth. Once the procedure is over, you will enjoy an even and uniform smile without too much gum in the way.
If you have decayed teeth or chips, cracks, discoloration, uneven teeth, gaps between teeth, or teeth that are too short, bonding may help fix your flaws. Bonding, made of composite resin, is shaped to your tooth and hardened with a light. Dr. Thompson offers this tooth-colored material as an inexpensive way to improve your smile quickly.
Smile makeovers take a big-picture approach to cosmetic dentistry. They improve many aspects of your smile through several cosmetic procedures. Your dentist works closely with you to enhance what you like about your smile and change what you don’t like. We use wax mock-ups to let you see what your final smile will look like before you move forward.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns help hide discolored, damaged, or decayed teeth by “capping” the tooth. They are often used to help protect a tooth after a root canal procedure. Dental bridges “bridge” the gap left by a missing tooth, using a dental appliance that consists of a false tooth attached to two crowns that are placed over the natural teeth on either side of the gap, known as abutment teeth. Crowns and bridges can also be secured on top of dental implants. We offer crowns made of incredibly durable zirconium as well as all-porcelain and all-metal crowns.
Teeth Contouring & Crown Lengthening
Teeth contouring, or tooth reshaping, is a simple cosmetic procedure we perform to improve the shape and length of your teeth. By removing a small portion of your tooth enamel, we can even out a tooth that’s too long, too wide, slightly cracked, or with uneven surfaces in minutes. Crown lengthening is an aesthetic surgical procedure our dentists use procedure Dr. Thompson uses to correct gummy smiles and make your teeth appear longer. He does this by skillfully reshaping the gums and tissues around your teeth.
As a Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, a graduate of the Misch International Implant Institute, and with board certification from the American Board of Oral Implantology, Dr. Fred Thompson is highly qualified to place dental implants. In fact, he has placed and restored more than 7,500 dental implants in office.
Dental implants are ideal for patients who are missing one or more teeth. An implant is made of a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. After the healing process, crowns, bridges, or dentures are affixed to the posts to provide a beautiful, natural-looking smile. You can read more about our implants on our Dental Implants page.
When implants are not an option for you, dentures may be the right procedure. We offer full and partial dentures to replace teeth that are missing in your mouth. Dentures have improved in quality over the years, so you can worry less about slippage and irritation. Our affordable dentures are natural looking and help restore your smile and jawline.
