Fill In Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Are you like millions of Americans who are missing at least one tooth? If so, the best and longest lasting solution is a dental implant. At Signature Smiles, we offer these tooth replacements at all three of our Houston area dental clinics, located in The Woodlands, The Heights, and Humble.

The reason why dental implants are long-lasting is because the implant portion is made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metallic substance. When the titanium is placed into the jawbone, the bone accepts the material as part of the human body. The bone then grows around the titanium screw, securing it into place.

A temporary cap is placed on top of the dental implant. Once the implant area heals completely, the patient returns to our dental clinic to receive their dental crown. The dental crown is customized to fit perfectly and beautifully on top of the implant. It fits perfectly in order to ensure the tooth replacement settles nicely between the existing teeth, and so that it does not obstruct the upper or bottom teeth when chewing or talking. It fits beautifully because the dental crown is made of porcelain, which ensures it looks and feels like a natural tooth. Our cosmetic dentist also makes certain that the dental implant matches the existing teeth, so that it does not stand out.

DENTAL IMPLANT: THE SOONER, THE BETTER

If you have suffered an injury or an accident that causes your tooth to be forcefully removed, or your adult tooth never grew in, then the sooner you receive a dental implant, the better it is. The reason being is because once a tooth is missing for an extended period of time and you get older, the bone density in the mouth begins to decrease, which makes placing a dental implant in the mouth more difficult. Our cosmetic dentists recommend taking care of the missing tooth as soon as possible.

If you have a missing tooth, then you should consider receiving a dental implant. Our Houston dental clinics also provide prosthodontic treatments, which includes dentures and dental bridges. Contact our dental clinic today and schedule your cosmetic dentistry appointment, whether a dental implant, prosthodontics, or any of our other cosmetic dental treatments. We look forward to providing you with a beautiful, healthy, and complete smile.

Smiles in July! Get Your Kids Their Braces This Summer

Does your child need braces due to gapped, misaligned, or crooked teeth? Since the kids are out of school, scheduling their orthodontics appointment would be a good idea.

All three of our Houston area dental clinics in The Heights, The Woodlands, and Humble offer kids braces, which include metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign Teen. We enjoy ensuring all of our patients have the best options when it comes to their dentistry.

WHY SUMMER WORKS FOR BRACES APPOINTMENTS

Getting braces for your child during the summer makes it a bit easier on the parents and the child since this time of year the kids are out of school and they also have an opportunity to get used to the braces for a little while before going back to school. Getting used to braces can take some time. Not only that, braces have to be adjusted every couple of weeks, so it helps to have the summer to schedule the appointment times that will work.

At Signature Smiles, we are all about convenience and comfort for all of our patients, from kids to adults. Our orthodontists and our dental staff work with every patient when it comes to scheduling.

BENEFITS OF BRACES FOR YOUR KIDS

There are numerous benefits that come from having braces. Not only will braces straighten and beautify your child’s smile, but there are also numerous health benefits.

When teeth are straightened and aligned, food particles have a much harder time hiding in hard to reach places. With crooked or misaligned teeth, food can easily be left unnoticed, which can lead to cavities and gum disease. Straight teeth makes brushing and flossing easier and more effective.

Braces are commonly known for making beautiful smiles, but always remember that they also help establish and maintain healthy smiles.

SCHEDULE YOUR KIDS BRACES APPOINTMENT

If your child needs braces, don’t wait for school to start back up and when things get back to their hectic state. Call and schedule your dental appointment with any of our three Houston dental clinics today.

Bring the Kids for Summertime Pediatric Dentistry

The kids are out of school and probably consuming a pretty unhealthy diet. Now is the perfect time for scheduling their pediatric dentistry appointment at one of our three Houston area dental clinics.

Pediatric dentistry is essential to protecting your child’s oral health. Our Houston pediatric dentists in The Heights, The Woodlands/Conroe, and Humble are able to pinpoint any oral issues your child may have while also pointing out the positives and how they can continue maintaining their oral health.

At Signature Smiles, we provide numerous pediatric dental services to our kid patients. We provide dental fillings, dental crowns, braces, wisdom teeth extractions, and many more services. One of the most important dental service our kids dentists provide is the dental exam.

KIDS DENTAL EXAMS

Kids, just like adults, need to receive a dental exam every six months. This bi-annual oral checkup allows our dentists to catch any problems arising in the teeth, like cavities and gum disease. Dental exams help parents save money by catching dental problems while they are small and not after they become a big problem.

Typically, oral issues, especially in children can be addressed through preventative measures. This means making certain that your child is brushing their teeth twice per day and flossing every day. Our kids dentists also provide simple tips, like chewing sugar free gum, to make certain kids steer clear of gum disease, cavities, and other oral hazards.

If your child is new to the dentist and may be a little hesitant, don’t worry. We have video games and movies to keep their minds preoccupied so they can relax while at the dental office. Our dental staff loves working with kids, and each member understands the importance of starting children off on the right path to great oral hygiene.

START YOUR KID ON THE RIGHT DENTAL PATH THIS SUMMER

Worried About Your Smile? Get Veneers

Cosmetic dentistry has continued to create great ways to beautify teeth. With continual advances, more and more of our patients are able to perfect their smile and increase their confidence. At our three Houston-area dentistry locations in The Heights, The Woodlands/Conroe, and Humble, we offer top-of-the-line cosmetic dentistry procedures. One of the most sought after and most effective procedures is veneers.

At our dental clinics, we provide porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers. Signature Smiles patients choose to receive veneers for various reasons. Here are some of the more common reasons for choosing veneers:

  • BRIGHTER SMILES: Teeth can become darkened quite easily through what we eat or drink or just from time. Wine, coffee, and dark colored foods (like sauces) can easily create dark teeth and keep patients from smiling freely. Receiving veneers can create bright smiles and eliminate the hesitance to smile.
  • CHIPPED TEETH: Sometimes dental fillings can only do so much for chipped teeth. These chipped teeth may be a sign of weak teeth. Placing veneers on the teeth can help strengthen them.
  • SHORT TEETH: There are some patients who feel their teeth are too short.This may be from genetics or from years of grinding them down. Veneers are a simple solution to this issue.
  • GAPPED TEETH: Instead of receiving braces (we offer metal, ceramic, and Invisalign) for gapped teeth, some patients choose to receive veneers instead. This eliminates the gaps in between the teeth and creates a perfect alignment.

DO YOU NEED VENEERS?

Regardless of why you may need veneers, our cosmetic dentists are able to provide them and beautify your smile. Our dentist will sit with you to go over the details about either option: porcelain or composite resin.

We want you to feel completely confident about your smile and confident about the cosmetic dental procedure choice you make. Whether veneers, braces, teeth whitening, or dental implants, our dental staff will guide you through the process of the decision. Contact our dental office today and schedule your cosmetic dental procedure.

Find Houston’s Best Cosmetic Dentistry at Signature Smiles

At Signature Smiles, we pride ourselves on providing excellent dental care to all of our Houston area patients. For many of our patients, it isn’t only about maintaining a healthy smile, which is most important, but it is about maintaining a beautiful smile. This is where cosmetic dentistry is utilized.

WHY RECEIVE COSMETIC DENTISTRY?

Cosmetic dentistry can turn unattractive smiles into Hollywood dazzlers. From stained to chipped teeth, Signature Smiles has all the necessary components and dental technology to transform any smile.

At our three Houston area dental offices, we have experienced just about every type of dental need. Here are some of the more common cosmetic dentistry needs:

  • STAINED TEETH: This is one of the most common issues for Houstonians and one of the most common issues our cosmetic dentists address. Stained teeth occur due to consuming dark drinks and dark foods, and the older a patient gets, the darker the stain. Teeth whitening is the simplest method to whitening teeth. At Signature Smiles, we offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening procedures. The in-office teeth whitening procedure can dramatically brighten teeth in one to two sessions. The at-home teeth whitening takes longer, but many patients prefer this method because of convenience.
  • CHIPPED TEETH: Teeth undergo constant strain every single day. This strain often leads to chipped teeth. At Signature Smiles, we recommend taking care of any chips or breaks immediately in order to keep teeth from experiencing further breakage or cavities. Our cosmetic dental fillings can take care of chipped areas in a timely manner, which helps reinforce the strength of teeth.
  • MISSING TEETH: There are so many ways a tooth can go missing. A tooth can be knocked out, broken, or sometimes be left without an adult tooth, leaving a noticeable gap. Our cosmetic dentists are able to fill in these gaps with dental implants or a dental bridge. Our dentist always takes the time to explain which option is best for the patient.

If you suffer from any of the aforementioned cosmetic dental issues or are simply dissatisfied with your smile, then contact one of our three Houston area dental offices and schedule a cosmetic dental appointment.

Invisalign: Clear Up Your Smile with Clear Braces

More and more people are gravitating to Invisalign, making them an incredibly popular choice for braces. These clear plastic tray aligners enable patients to have their teeth straightened and their smiles restored almost invisibly.

At Signature Smiles, we are a Premier Provider for Invisalign, which means countless Houstonians have come and continue to come to one of our three Houston area dental offices for their Invisalign braces. This enables us to offer great prices and deals on these clear plastic braces, which helps ensure more patients are able to afford them.

RECEIVING YOUR INVISALIGN BRACES AT SIGNATURE SMILES

Signature Smiles has three locations, located in The Heights, The Woodlands/Conroe, and Humble, with all three dental offices offering Invisalign. Patients who need braces due to crooked, misaligned or gapped teeth should schedule a consultation with our Board Certified orthodontist.

During the consultation, our orthodontist will conduct a thorough evaluation of the patient’s teeth. Our Board Certified orthodontist will be certain answer any and all questions and concerns the patient may have.

Once the evaluation process is finished, our dentist will proceed with X-ray impressions of the patient’s oral structure in order to create custom tray aligners. By customizing the Invisalign plastic tray aligners, we are able to make certain that the braces fit the teeth perfectly in order to begin shifting them into place. These clear braces are replaced about every two weeks with new aligners. This is equivalent to metal and ceramic braces being tightened.

In comparison to metal and ceramic braces, Invisalign braces can be removed by the patient every day. The clear plastic tray aligners must be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours every day in order for the teeth to successfully be straightened in a timely manner. These few hours are optimal for when patients wish to eat or brush and floss their teeth.
