Smiling doesn’t just help you look and feel more attractive, it’s also good for you. According to SCL Health, smiling relieves stress, enhances mood, and even strengthens your body and immune system. However, those of us with less-than-stellar smiles might not be inclined to flash our teeth, which means we’re missing out. To help our patients smile and feel their best, Pearland cosmetic dentists Drs. Dave, Shah, and the rest of our team at Pearland Dental Group offer a wide array of cosmetic dentistry services.
Cosmetic dentistry is a field concerned with the repair or replacement of teeth that have been chipped, discolored, deformed, crooked, worn down, or are missing altogether to improve the appearance of your smile.
At Pearland Dental Group, we take pride in providing you with the best possible outcome in terms of improving the function and appearance of your teeth and overall smile. That way, you’ll be able to smile your best so you can look and feel your best. Cosmetic dentistry services available at our Pearland, TX office include:

Dental veneers are an excellent and popular aesthetic procedure because of how easily and significantly they can transform your smile. Dental veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth to mask them. The result is an instantly brighter smile that looks whiter, properly shaped, and aligned without braces or other treatments. Common issues dental veneers address include:
It will take less than a month to design your restorations. Our Pearland cosmetic dentists will be able to install your dental veneers in two to three appointments with a minimally invasive procedure.
To restore both the form and the function of your tooth, our Pearland cosmetic dentist offers dental crowns and bridges. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped, cap-like restorations that are fitted over your natural tooth. With dental crowns, your Pearland cosmetic dentist can protect your tooth from trauma while restoring shape, color, and bite force. Dental crowns are often necessary for teeth that have experienced:
Dental crowns are also a key part of dental implants and dental bridges. Dental bridges are rows of false teeth called pontics with crowns attached on either end. The crowns are attached to your healthy teeth, securing the restoration in place. Your Pearland cosmetic dentist can use dental bridges to comfortably restore your smile with or without the use of implants. Your dental crowns or dental bridge will be customized to blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth made of titanium posts. Implants are topped off either with a crown, a denture, or a bridge. By surgically inserting these titanium posts into your jaw, your Pearland cosmetic dentist creates a secure foundation for your custom-made restorations. That way, you don’t have to worry about your restorations being unstable.
Your Pearland dentist will customize your dental implants to look like your real teeth. Best of all, while the restorations will need replacement every so often due to normal wear and tear, the implants can last 20 years to a lifetime with proper care. With dental implants, you’ll be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
If you need orthodontic treatment to achieve a straight smile, but don’t want to deal with uncomfortable and unattractive wires, then our Pearland dentists can offer Invisalign as a cosmetic dentistry option. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system capable of straightening your smile without wires in half the time of traditional metal braces. With Invisalign, you’ll be able to smile your best without feeling self conscious.
Many factors can discolor your smile, from age to diet to medication use. To safely and effectively whiten your smile, our Pearland office offers professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening refers to the techniques and tools we offer for removing stains from your smile. We can provide in-office teeth whitening with ZOOM!® to whiten your teeth up to eight shades in one appointment. We also offer convenient at-home whitening with take home trays.
Professional teeth whitening involves supervision from your Pearland cosmetic dentist. They’ll thoroughly examine your teeth and review your medical history to ensure your smile can be whitened safely and effectively. We’ll also provide guidance and expert care to reduce post-whitening sensitivity and prevent damage to your enamel from misuse.
The exact cost of your cosmetic dentistry services will depend on various factors, including the type and number of treatments you plan to undergo. For example, teeth whitening is usually less expensive than dental implants. Since we want all of our patients to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile, Pearland Dental Group will happily make your treatment more affordable by working out a payment plan.
Most insurance providers won’t cover cosmetic dentistry services unless they’re considered restorative as well. For example, dental implants are considered both restorative and cosmetic dentistry services, so your insurance provider will likely cover at least part of the cost.
Please talk to your provider beforehand for a better understanding of what they will and will not cover. You can also talk to either of our Pearland cosmetic dentists or a member of our team to learn more about ways to afford your treatment.
Some cosmetic dentistry services will only impact the look of your smile, but oftentimes a service will benefit your oral health as well. For example, dental crowns will restore the look of a damaged tooth. Additionally, they will also help prevent the tooth from taking further damage, decreasing the chances of the tooth going on to cause problems for the rest of your smile. There are additional health benefits that certain cosmetic dentistry services can provide that your dentist can inform you of at any stage of your treatment.
No, cosmetic dentistry shouldn’t be painful. Many cosmetic services don’t even require anesthetic. Some procedures however, such as dental implants, may require anesthetic. If you have sensitive teeth, we can also apply anesthetic during your treatment.
Rest assured that Pearland Dental Group prioritizes the safety and comfort of our patients, so we’ll use anesthetic as needed to keep you pain-free and ensure a pleasant visit.
