Gummy smiles – lots of people have them, but most people find them to be both annoying and embarrassing. When too much gum tissue covers your smile, it can not only make your teeth look shorter and duller than they actually are, it can also make cleaning your teeth properly more difficult, leaving you vulnerable to an increased risk of gum disease. This overabundance of gum tissue, otherwise known as gum overgrowth, can be caused by a wide range of things from hormones, heredity, poor oral hygiene, braces, and even certain medications. But because Burkburnett Family Dental has invested in the latest soft-tissue-laser technology, we can quickly and conveniently sculpt away your excess gum tissue and release the beautiful, healthy smile that has been hiding there all along. Our laser shapes your gums without any cutting, bleeding, or need for stitches so you can leave our office looking and feeling great!
Some stains, chips, or cracks are bad enough to cause embarrassment… but not quite bad enough to warrant a full, porcelain restoration. When we see this kind of damage or flaw here in our Burkburnett dental office, we are always pleased to offer a conservative and budget-friendly alternative to more extensive cosmetic dentistry – natural-looking composite bonding. Direct dental bonding is a restorative method that is both conservative and inexpensive and requires less preparation of the tooth than a porcelain veneer or crown does. And because it is completed right here in our office, with no need for gooey impressions or return visits for placement, it is one of our most convenient cosmetic dentistry options as well. The fact that the procedure is custom shaded in our office and applied directly to your tooth does necessitate an artistic eye for the most natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance – and Dr. Clark has that in spades. You’ll leave your visit with us with a repaired, restored, and beautified smile you can show off immediately!
Rough tooth edges. Scratchy chips. Uneven tooth lines. They all seem to just ask your tongue to run over them again and again – and that is not only irritating, it can also lead to canker sores and cuts. Those broken, uneven, ground-away tooth lines can be both embarrassing and uncomfortable – and it is why we offer the practical and easy solution of tooth recontouring to our patients in Burkburnett and surrounding areas. Tooth shaping and contouring is fast, convenient and affordable, and when combined with dental bonding and tooth whitening, can allow us to transform a smile on a wallet-friendly budget. With tooth contouring, we can sculpt the shape of your smile, smoothing away rough spots, creating symmetry, and even improving your bite for reduced jaw pain and headaches. Dr. Clark uses a delicate, rotating burr, much like the kind a jeweler uses to polish gold or silver, to fine tune, perfect, and reshape your teeth to perfection.
Sometimes all your smile needs to look incredible is a little pick-me-up with smile whitening. It’s true! Professional tooth whitening from Burkburnett Family Dental can not only brighten your teeth up to ten shades, it can also make small irregularities and unevenness seem to disappear. Plus, professional tooth whitening offers safer, faster, more predictable results than over-the-counter whitening from the drugstore. We offer the incredible speed and efficiency of in-office whitening and the convenience and flexibility of take-home, prescription tooth bleaching. Both of our systems are created by Opalescence for a superior whitening experience with less sensitivity and no damage to your gums. The Opalescence gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to lower sensitivity and prevent tooth dehydration, common problems associated with other smile-whitening formulas. In-office whitening can be completed in about an hour and offers the most dramatic results, while take-home whitening lets you whiten whenever and wherever you want. And with flavors like mint and melon, whitening will be something you can even look forward to! You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to treat yourself to a smile whitening – with Opalescence smile whitening, every day can be a reason to celebrate your gorgeous smile!
