At San Antonio’s Aesthetic Dental Partners, Dr. Huriega provides cosmetic dentistry services proven to safely and effectively eliminate dental flaws. We’ll take your smile to new heights with teeth whitening that uncovers hidden dental brilliance, porcelain veneers or Lumineers that cover flaws to create exquisite smiles, or Invisalign clear braces that straighten teeth quickly and unobtrusively.

He may suggest a single procedure, such as cosmetic bonding to beautify a chipped front tooth, or a complete smile makeover to correct a variety of flaws. Our metal-free, all-white fillings and porcelain crowns are made from durable, long-lasting materials that look and feel fantastic.

Cosmetic Dental Procedure Treatments

There are numerous cosmetic dental procedures that are affordable and can make a significant difference in your appearance. Contact us today for a consultation; we can provide a solution for many dental imperfections including:

  • Stains

    There are different types of tooth discoloration. Many topical stains respond well to teeth whitening. This process usually involves a visit with the hygienist to remove plaque build-up and a look-see from the dentist to make sure you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. The in-office teeth whitening process takes about 90 minutes from start to finish and you leave your dental appointment with a dazzling smile up to eight shades lighter. At-home whitening kits are available for patients that wish to move at their own pace and in the privacy of home.

  • Dental Decay

    For years the standard for filling a cavity was silver amalgam. Today, however, we have composite resin. This is a tooth colored plastic that provides virtually invisible treatment for treating dental decay. Many patients are opting to have amalgam fillings removed and having them replaced with dental composite.

  • Deeply Stained Teeth

    When teeth whitening is not the solution for intrinsic tooth discoloration, porcelain veneers are a perfect answer. These very thin, tooth colored shells are permanently cemented on the front of teeth that are stained; chipped; asymmetrical; have gaps between them; are worn down … these problems disappear with a covering that is stain resistant. Your cosmetic dentist will fabricate the veneers to provide a match to surrounding untreated teeth making veneers virtually undetectable.

  • Malocclusion (Overbite, Underbite, Cross Bite)

    An overbite, under bite or cross bite can create issues with appearance in addition to the ability to chew, or speak clearly. Invisalign clear aligners can correct many occlusion problems without interfering with day to day life. They are clear making wearing “braces” almost invisible; they are removable clearing the path to eating the foods you love; since they are removable caring for your teeth with daily brushing and flossing is made simpler along with having teeth cleaned by your dental professional every six months.

  • Tooth Loss

    A lost permanent tooth can be restored with dental implants providing the ability to eat, speak and smile with a replacement that mimics your biological tooth.There are many avenues to creating a smile makeover that start with a consultation with our cosmetic dentistry team. Call today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Huriega at Aesthetic Dental Partners. We provide comprehensive, personalized dental care for residents of San Antonio and surrounding areas.
