Why Choose Alamo Springs Dental for Cosmetic Dentistry?
Fast & Effective Professional
Boost Your Confidence
By Fixing Imperfections
These natural-looking coverings are permanently bonded to the teeth that show when you smile. In just two appointments, Dr. Moreno or Dr. Anderson will be able to plan and place an entirely new smile. Each veneer is custom crafted to correct for the particular imperfections of a tooth. Chips, cracks, discolorations, even gaps between teeth can be concealed behind a new smile thanks to porcelain veneers.
Teeth work hard all day every day. Sometimes the pressure of biting and chewing can lead to cracks and breaks that necessitate a dental crown. Also called a cap, this all-ceramic restoration entire encapsulates a damaged tooth in order to restore functionality and appearance. A dental crown is also an integral component of a crown and bridge that is used to replace one or several missing teeth.
Want to make a big difference in your smile with a relatively small investment? Alamo Springs Dental offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to love the dramatic results. Whether your teeth are stained from foods, beverages, smoking, age or genetics, teeth whitening can brighten your smile and give your confidence an important boost.
Tips for Choosing
a Cosmetic Dentist
It is important that you feel comfortable and confident when choosing the right cosmetic dentist. If you are unsure of what to look for, here are a few suggestions:
- Someone who has the educational and professional background and training to perform various cosmetic procedures
- Someone who will provide before and after results of satisfied patients
- An individual who offers updated, advanced technology to ensure a safer, faster, and more comfortable experience
It’s also important that your timeline is in line with what the cosmetic dentist recommends. If you need something quicker, it might be necessary to opt for a different solution that will produce the same high-quality results. Remember, cosmetic dentistry is an art, and it takes an artistic eye and skillful hand to transform a smile.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Moreno or Dr. Anderson, you will discuss your ultimate goals and what you hope to achieve with cosmetic dentistry. After performing a thorough oral examination, they will offer recommended treatments designed to improve and enhance your smile. No matter the recommendation, you will receive a personalized treatment plan that you must agree to before moving forward. It is at this time that you will be encouraged to ask any questions, express any concerns, and offer your suggestions so that you can feel comfortable and confident about your upcoming dental work.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Patients who choose cosmetic dentistry often have many questions. This is normal, so do not worry if you are one of these individuals. Our team at Alamo Springs Dental is here to provide clear, concise answers to help you feel more confident in your decision to choose one of our available dental treatments. When meeting with your cosmetic dentist in Alamo Ranch, we encourage you to bring a list of questions so that you can get the answers you need. But before you arrive, we invite you to review the following information.
Is cosmetic dentistry expensive?
Not necessarily. Although it’s commonly viewed as a more expensive form of dentistry, the truth is that certain procedures cost more than others. Also, because dental insurance doesn’t often cover the cost, many people believe there is no “cheaper” way to receive these types of treatment. Although you cannot escape the price tag associated with some services, the investment you make to improve the look and aesthetics of your smile is certainly worth it. Your boost in confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life is priceless, and it can benefit you personally and professionally!
At Alamo Springs Dental, we are pleased to provide an in-house loyalty program and flexible financing to help patients like yourself afford cosmetic dentistry and stay within your budget.
Is cosmetic dentistry safe?
Yes, cosmetic dentistry is safe as long as you are entrusting your smile to a trained professional. However, it’s necessary that you undergo an initial consultation because not all services are right for every person. Some procedures may not deliver the results you desire, or they may pose a risk if you have an underlying oral health issue that remains untreated. An example of this is placing a dental veneer over a tooth that is suffering from decay. Without proper treatment, it can worsen and cause you to not only spend more money to replace the veneer but also risk losing the tooth!
Does cosmetic dentistry hurt?
Dentistry of all types tends to cause patients to worry that any type of procedure will cause pain. Fortunately, at Alamo Springs Dental, we place our patients’ safety and comfort at the forefront. We believe in creating a comfortable environment that promotes personalization and relaxation. The good news is that most cosmetic treatments are non-invasive and do not require anesthesia. Teeth whitening and dental bonding are just two examples of this. Any other treatments will ensure that you are fully at ease beforehand and appropriate instructions are provided to help ensure a swift and successful recovery.
What is the difference between a dentist and a cosmetic dentist?
All cosmetic dentists must carry the same type of licensure as a general dentist (i.e., DDS or DMD). However, not all general dentists possess the skills and experience to provide cosmetic dentistry. Because it is a unique field that requires dentists to undergo additional training, those who wish to provide veneers, teeth whitening, and other similar services pursue continuing education courses.
Although not considered a “specialized field” like orthodontics, pediatrics, endodontics, or periodontics, cosmetic dentistry does require a level of specialized skill – an artistic eye and attention to detail. Cosmetic dentists also pay special attention to the aesthetics of a person’s smile, not just the health of their teeth and gums.
