At Allen Smile Design, we care about not just making your smile look beautiful, but being transparent, honest and informative about every treatment option we offer. Dr. Lewis will carefully go over each treatment so you can set expectations before we begin your smile makeover. If you have questions or want to guide the treatment in a specific direction, our goal is to make sure you are heard first and foremost. Call our office to get started transforming your smile!
When it comes to comprehensive cosmetics, porcelain veneers and Lumineers offer a level of detail and versatility that’s hard to match. Traditional porcelain veneers are designed to sit flush over existing teeth, hiding any and all imperfections in the process. However, they also require removal of enamel to place. With Lumineers, you can accomplish the same goal without having to remove enamel! It’s also ideal if, for any reason, you decide that treatment isn’t right for you.
While crowns are important for saving and protecting damaged teeth, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your smile’s appearance in the process. Whether you’re getting a basic crown placed or you need complex restorations, we make sure to utilize tooth-colored materials like porcelain to get the job done. This ensures that your smile looks the same throughout and that your teeth remain protected for many years to come! We’ll make sure you are satisfied with your new crown and make adjustments as needed.
Whether you want to get your teeth whitened quickly in the comfort of our office or you’d like to do so on your own time at home, Dr. Lewis offers both options for you to consider. Both treatments utilize Zoom! Whitening, a powerful and effective method for making teeth up to 10 shades whiter! If you whiten in our office, expect treatment to take about one hour. If you whiten at home, simply wear your custom-made whitening trays for a set period of time per day (typically about 30 minutes) over the next two weeks to achieve the same results!
When there are minor chips and cracks in your tooth enamel, you might not want to pursue treatments that are particularly costly or unnecessary. During your exam, we’ll recommend cosmetic bonding if we believe it’s suitable for your needs. With tooth-colored composite resin, we can apply, sculpt, and bond the material directly to your teeth in order to hide chips, cracks, stains, and even minor gaps to make your smile look more even overall.
While cosmetic dentistry may often focus on teeth, your gums can also influence your smile’s appearance. For example, if you wish that your gum tissue did not cover your teeth as much as they do, or you wish that your gum line was more even overall, we can use a soft tissue laser to carefully and precisely remove excess gum tissue with relative ease. This makes your smile look fuller and more visible, and thanks to laser technology, we can dramatically reduce your aftercare symptoms.
If you wish you could straighten teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires, then you’ll find Invisalign’s clear aligner technology to be a game-changer. These custom-made clear trays are worn for about two weeks at a time. We create your clear aligner series at the beginning, then ask you to visit us once every six weeks to confirm they are straightening your teeth as planned. It’s perfect if you want to address mild to moderate levels of crooked teeth or address a relapse after a previous orthodontic treatment.
