We offer both in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening using powerful chemical whiteners. In-office whitening is done in the Whitening Parlour, our dedicated brightening lounge. You'll enjoy our luxurious amenities while we pamper your smile. For in-office whitening, the power of teeth whitening is boosted by our UV light system, which activates and speeds up the whitening process, so this is a good option for faster results.
On the other hand, take-home whitening is done with custom whitening trays that allow you to treat yourself from the comfort of your own home. Your results will take a bit longer, but you can whiten your teeth on your own terms without spending time in the dentist’s chair.
Dental bonding uses a special type of composite dental resin to reshape your teeth. This material is applied directly to your tooth and is then reshaped and sculpted by Dr. Morren to cover up cosmetic imperfections like chips in the teeth, stains, uneven and misshapen teeth, and more. It’s fast, affordable, and non-invasive, requiring no numbing shots or drilling of the tooth.
This process is usually done alongside dental bonding. Using a special buffing tool, Dr. Morren will smooth out small imperfections in your teeth like chips and uneven teeth, providing you with a more appealing and attractive smile.
Porcelain veneers are made of durable ceramic materials. They are shaped to cover up and replace the surfaces of your front teeth. Veneers can cover up a wide variety of cosmetic flaws, ranging from chipped teeth to severely stained teeth, gaps between the teeth, and more.
“White spots” are common after orthodontic treatment, and can negatively affect your smile. Icon Resin Infiltration uses a special type of dental resin that helps strengthen and restore the surface of the tooth. It provides fast results, is minimally-invasive, and is a cost-effective alternative to other treatments such as veneers or dental bonding.
Often, a single cosmetic treatment is not enough to completely transform your smile. That’s where cosmetic makeovers from Dr. Morren come in. With a customized smile makeover at your dentist in Austin, you can get a treatment plan that works for your smile, your needs, and your budget.
A good candidate for cosmetic dentistry is someone unhappy with their smile because of imperfections in their teeth. Ideally, they should be in good oral health with no signs of tooth decay or gum disease.
Additionally, patients with severely damaged teeth are more suitable candidates for restorative dentistry. While we can address minor chips and cracks, discoloration, gaps, misaligned teeth, and even alter their shape and size, if a tooth is severely cracked or broken, you may require dental crowns or even root canal treatment.
A cosmetic solution alone will not be enough to restore your teeth to health. That being said, cosmetic dentistry often offers restorative benefits for minor tooth damage.
You should have realistic expectations of how much of a difference cosmetic treatments can make to your smile. While we can certainly improve the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, a total transformation can be costly and dental insurance does not cover purely cosmetic procedures.
Yes, you are never limited to a single cosmetic dental treatment. We recommend that patients who have multiple concerns about their smile and may require multiple treatments come in for a cosmetic makeover consultation.
A cosmetic makeover is a custom-tailored cosmetic treatment that takes into account all of the aesthetic concerns you have about your teeth. If you have multiple concerns, like discoloration, chips & cracks, and misaligned teeth, then we will create a personalized treatment plan that prioritizes correcting all of these issues with the least invasive and most cost-effective treatments.
Many cosmetic treatments offer multiple benefits and can address several different issues at once. For this reason, cosmetic makeovers can vary a lot in terms of how many procedures are needed, length of treatment, and cost.
When you arrive at your consultation, Dr. Morren will examine your teeth to look at the visible signs of damage, discoloration, or any other issues with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth. X-rays will be taken to rule out the presence of oral health problems.
During this appointment, Dr. Morren will ask about what bothers you about your teeth and what you would like to change. Then, we will formulate a treatment plan that works for your budget and can address all of the problems you have discussed. We will do this with the fewest treatments possible.
Impressions may need to be taken if we need to fabricate tooth restorations or create aligners for Invisalign. We will give you a quote, schedule follow-up appointments, discuss your options for sedation, and discuss the length of your treatment. Some treatments can be performed in a single appointment while others need to be spaced out over months.
