Do you feel better when you smile more? A study published in the prestigious Scientific American journal says that people who smile more (and frown less) feel happier. The trouble is this: who wants to smile when your teeth and gums look less than attractive?

Cosmetic Dental Services
Treatments range from simple, one-visit bonding to full smile makeovers. Here are some examples of the aesthetic services offered at Parkway Vista Dental.
Direct bonding Also called composite resin bonding, this simple service repairs small dental defects such as hairline cracks, gaps and chips. Dr. Kamali uses a tooth-colored material made of acrylic and glass to remake irregularities. This very durable resin is bonded into place and hardened with a special curing light. Dr. Kamali works to achieve natural tooth shape and color so that no one notices the repairs but only that your smile looks just great.
Zoom! Whitening uses a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to remove stains from tooth enamel. This swabbed on gel lifts out the organic matter our teeth collect from smoking, darkly-colored beverages and food and the aging process. The in-office process takes just about an hour. The at-home treatments, applied with customized acrylic trays, take about a week, but both methods improve tooth color by a dramatic ten shades. Professional teeth whitening in Plano is safe, producing no dental or gingival (gum) sensitivity.
Porcelain veneers A permanent refurbishment to deeply stained or cracked teeth, veneers are thin shells of dental grade ceramic. They are translucent, tooth-shaped and permanently bonded to the front of select teeth. Enamel and gums must be healthy in order to receive veneers. The process takes just two visits and after care is easy: simply brush and floss your teeth as usual and get semi-annual check-ups and cleanings at Parkway Vista Dental.
A cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Kamali will be more than hopeful. You’ll come away confident that a new smile can be yours. Why not contact Parkway Vista Dental for an appointment today?
