What Makes Our Cosmetic Dentists Unique is Their Blend of Skills and Professional Bedside Manner
Our team at the Medical Center Dental Group consists of what is perhaps the most unique group of cosmetic dentists in all of Houston. Their broad range of exceptional medical skills, their professional expertise, and their warm bedside manner make them a winning team in all respects.
Our cosmetic dentists have established a practice that is uniquely positioned in the world of aesthetics and the world of expert general dentistry. This rare combination makes our office the only stop you have to make on the road to a brighter, healthier smile.
There are few procedures that we do not perform in house. On those periodic occasions where we do need to refer a patient to a specialist, it is always done with the highest level of awareness of what is best for the patient and who in our network of professionals is best qualified to treat that patient.
Basic dental procedures fall under the category of general dentistry. Procedures such as teeth cleaning, filling cavities, root canals, and the treatment of Periodontitis are services that many assume can only be done by a family dentist. The reality is that every cosmetic dentist has to go through the same dental school as your family dentist, and while many cosmetic dentists do not specialize in these services, they nonetheless possess the skills.
Our office makes it a point to make both branches of dental science available to patients who typically need a blend of both to solve their problems. For example, a person who gets a cavity in one of their front teeth is not going to smile all that cheerfully with a silver-mercury filling putting a dot right in the middle of their grin. However, if we do away with those bothersome silver-mercury fillings and use cosmetic dental bonding agents, we can not only fix the cavity, but also improve the smile.
This is a tremendous time saver for busy professionals and students who would otherwise have to go to a general dentist for the medical aspect of treatment, and then look around for a cosmetic dentist who could improve the aesthetics of their smile. Another advantage our patients receive is access to some of the best dental equipment in the world. Our computers, x-rays, dental tools, and dental materials are the most sophisticated that current medical technology and science can provide.
Experience is yet another advantage our patients can count on receiving. Our cosmetic dentists have trained for well over 20+ years each in specialized procedures that have been developed specifically to beautify the human smile. These techniques require ongoing training and many years of experience to master. As we have noted in other articles, the youngest dentist on our team has over 20 years of experience. Other team members have served both the general public and the United States armed forces.
Every one of our experts specializes in specific treatments for cracked, broken, or missing teeth. We use porcelain veneers to even out damaged tooth surfaces. We apply cosmetic dental bonding agents to cracked teeth and teeth marred by cavities. We repair severely cracked and broken teeth with porcelain crowns that look identical to natural teeth. We bleach teeth that have been stained brown and yellow after years of abuse or medication side effects, and we make them white again. We even replace missing teeth with titanium tooth roots and porcelain crowns that allow people to eat a normal diet and smile with total confidence.
While we technically have chairs, not beds, in our office, it is a true statement nonetheless to say our cosmetic dentists have superb bedside manner. People who are looking for a dentist who projects warmth and empathy need to come here. Our team operates according to the firm conviction that the last thing a patient needs is a cold and mysterious dentist who gets drill happy without explaining treatment options from more than a singular (and painful) perspective.
Finally, for patients who are frightened by dentists, or who have unusual sensitivities such as strong gag reflexes, we offer both oral and IV sedation services. This allows us to perform any dental procedure while the patient is conscious, yet too relaxed to feel pain.
Cosmetic Dentistry is a specialized field that requires extensive knowledge and experience to be done correctly. The Medical Center Dental Group in Houston, Texas brings all of that and more to the direct benefit of each and every patient we treat. Although we are located in the world famous Houston Medical Center at Scurlock Towers, we routinely see dental patients who travel from Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Beaumont Midland and Houston, Texas to see Dr. Dale Brant, Dr. Charles Campbell or Dr. Elizabeth OSullivan-Winslow for their cosmetic denistry services.
