What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic Dentistry is the area of dentistry concerned mostly with the aesthetic value of your teeth, gums and overall smile. Cosmetic dentistry is also focused on the function of your teeth as well as your oral health. State of the art dental technology with an artistic sensibility comes together to provide our patients with a bright and beautiful smile. It’s a combination of science and art.
In the past few decades advancements in dental technology have made cosmetic dentistry more effective and long-lasting than ever. If you suffer from broken, decayed, misaligned, or missing teeth, then there are a few different cosmetic dentistry procedures available to you here at our Northeast El Paso dental office.
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to restore your teeth from the effects of wear, decay, time, and previous dentistry to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Types of Cosmetic Procedures Do We Offer?
Patriot Family Dental offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the look of your teeth and gums including:
- Teeth Whitening
We use Zoom! Teeth Whitening to help our patients brighten their teeth up to 8 shades lighter. The procedure is one of the safest dental treatments we offer and only takes about an hour. We also have Flashwhite Teeth Whitening Kits that allow you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your house.
Invisalign® is the clear alternative to metal braces, pun intended. Invisalign® affords our patients an effective teeth alignment treatment that is comfortable, convenient, and virtually undetectable. These clear custom alignment trays come a series that will be replaced every 2 weeks, for anywhere from a few months to 2 years. They are also removable for brushing, flossing and eating so you don’t have to give up any foods like you do with braces.
Veneers are thin porcelain or composite material shell that is placed on the front of your teeth. They fix dental problems like gapped, crooked, chipped, or discolored teeth with quick and simple treatment.
- Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are replacements for the decayed or broken part of your teeth. They usually replace the tooth from the gum-line up, leaving your natural tooth root. Crowns and bridges provide natural looking and feeling replacement teeth. Bridges provide replacements for teeth by bridging the gap between healthy teeth and missing teeth.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most effective and long-lasting treatment for teeth that aren’t able to be saved by our dentist. They are the last resort for badly decayed or broken teeth that have to be removed. Luckily, they have a 97% success rate and provide a stable foundation for a crown to be placed on. They provide a natural-looking and feeling replacement for your tooth.
Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help Me?
For people that live with embarrassing dental problems, cosmetic dentistry may be the only light at the end of the tunnel. A good candidate for cosmetic dentistry is in relatively good oral health free from tooth decay or gum disease. It is mainly focused on the look of your teeth and gums. A good way to know if cosmetic dentistry is good for you is to ask yourself the following questions.
- Are you embarrassed to smile in public?
- Do you want to increase your self-confidence or self-esteem?
- Are you a professional that needs to look their best in the workplace?
- Are you ready to fix any dental imperfections that you currently have?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then you are a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. You may still have some questions about cost, however.
Can I Afford Cosmetic Dentistry?

Common Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics in El Paso, TX
With recent advancements in orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry, many adults are deciding to make cosmetic orthodontics a part of their oral health treatment plan. However, you may still have some questions about whether or not you need cosmetic or orthodontic dentistry in your life. In this article, we will go over some common questions our patients have when they come in for a cosmetic dentistry consultation.
Am I to old for braces?
The short answer many adults with crooked teeth have found is no. At Patriot Family Dental we use Invisalign as an invisible alternative to conventional braces. While braces are awkward and need a lot of scheduled appointments for adjustments, Invisalign is a clear tray for your teeth that are custom made to align your teeth without metal braces. You can also take off Invisalign to eat and brush your teeth. A set of trays will be made at a lab after we take a mold of your teeth.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
Most professional and over-the-counter whitening products feature hydrogen peroxide as their active ingredient. Some people may have teeth that are sensitive to peroxide. Your teeth may start to ache during the whitening procedure, and you may feel discomfort when drinking or eating hot or cold products for a day or two afterward. This potential side effect from a teeth whitening treatment is usually short-lived and goes away with time.
At Patriot Family Dental, we use Zoom! Teeth Whitening to help our patients reach their optimal smile. Zoom! uses state-of-the-art UV light technology to help whiten your teeth with minimal side effects.
Is cosmetic and orthodontic dentistry expensive?
As a patient, you should understand that cosmetic orthodontics is usually the most conservative way to fix a cosmetic issue. Very often, the need for full bonding or veneers may reduce to just a few teeth or none. It may also be the only way to achieve optimal cosmetic dentistry results. The cost of treatment can be overcome by financial options we have available or using a third-party provider such as CareCredit.
