& Implant Dentistry
Your smile is a crucial part of your appearance and sense of self-confidence. However, over time, it can be difficult to live life to the fullest if you’re struggling with noticeable flaws like stains, chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, and more. Here in Fort Worth, Dr. Pointer has decades of experience providing aesthetics-based dentistry, and his available cosmetic procedures can give your smile a true makeover that exceeds expectations. He’ll always be sure to factor in longevity and function as well so that the beautiful results can be counted on for long-term reliability. Please contact our practice today if you’d like to schedule a consultation.
If you’re struggling with several dental flaws at once, the idea of pursuing a cosmetic makeover consisting of multiple services can feel overwhelming. Thankfully, porcelain veneers are a comprehensive and high-quality solution that can transform your smile in just a few appointments. The veneer itself is a very thin restoration that is designed to fit over just the front surfaces of certain teeth. Once they’re securely attached, the patient will have a revitalized and seamlessly lifelike appearance that’s finally free of imperfections.
When you’re in need of a dental crown or other type of restorative solution, the idea of having your natural smile marred with a dark-colored addition may be worrisome. Here in Fort Worth, Dr. Pointer offers metal-free ceramic materials as an attractive alternative that patients can rely on for the seamless quality they deserve. These restorations will also be durable, comfortable, and highly biocompatible. Even patients who have struggled with uncomfortable sensitivities to dental metals in the past should be able to receive them without issues.
If you’re in search of fast cosmetic improvement, direct bonding may be the best choice available. This procedure will only require one appointment of your time, during which Dr. Pointer will apply a lifelike composite resin material to the requested imperfection (such as a chip, stain, or small gap) and sculpt it into a pleasing addition that successfully hides it from view.
If you’ve been dissatisfied with the whitening products available at the local pharmacy, consider investing in a professional-strength solution here at Gary Pointer, DDS. Dr. Pointer can provide you with powerful whitening gel and oral trays that are designed for your unique smile. After a couple of weeks of consistent use, patients will see dramatically beautiful improvements, and positive changes should even be noticeable after the very first application.
Sometimes, frustration with your smile’s appearance may not actually stem from the teeth. Instead, an overabundance of gum tissue could be unnecessarily hiding dental structure from view or making your overall appearance seem overly unsymmetrical. Thankfully, Dr. Pointer offers a solution in the form of aesthetic gum recontouring and crown lengthening. We use a state-of-the-art soft tissue laser to sculpt the gum line into a much more even and pleasing shape. This technology will also make the process much more comfortable and efficient compared to traditional tools.
