Porcelain veneers example model

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure for closing gaps between teeth, evening out the length, covering stains and creating a balanced smile. As long as your tooth structure is intact and free of decay, our restoration dentist can restore its appearance with veneers in Houston, TX. First, the tooth needs to be prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel. After taking an impression of your tooth, a temporary veneer is secured to your tooth with removable glue. When the permanent veneer comes back from the dental lab, we check to ensure the fit is perfect, then bond it to your tooth with permanent cement.

Teeth whitening example model

Teeth Whitening

Age, genetics, tobacco, certain foods, coffee, tea and red wine can cause tooth stains or discoloration. While this common cosmetic issue can impact your appearance and self-esteem, professional whitening is a great solution to restore your pearly whites. We offer in-office teeth whitening in Houston, TX that can brighten your teeth by multiple shades in a single office visit. If you prefer to whiten teeth on your own schedule, we’ll take an impression of your teeth to create perfectly-fitting customized trays you’ll wear at home.

Inlays and Onlays example model

Inlays and Onlays

Also known as indirect fillings, inlays are used in teeth with mild to moderate decay or insufficient tooth structure to support a filling. If there is no damage to the tooth cusps (raised points), the inlay is placed directly onto the tooth surface. When the cusp or a more significant portion of the tooth is damaged, our restoration dentist will likely recommend an onlay to cover the entire surface of the tooth.

Chipped tooth example model

Composite Bonding

Bonding is a cost-effective cosmetic dentistry procedure to repair tooth decay, chipped or cracked teeth and worn-down edges. During this procedure, Dr. Lalani first drills out the tooth decay or imperfections, then roughens the surface to ensure a good bond. The tooth-colored composite material is applied onto the tooth surface, “sculpted” into the right shape and then cured with a high-intensity light.

Crown and bridge example model

Dental Crowns and Bridges

A crown or cap is a porcelain or ceramic restoration that covers the exposed surface of a tooth to strengthen it or improve its appearance. Crowns are an excellent option for teeth with large fillings or damage, and also to protect weakened tooth structure after a root canal. A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth with an artificial tooth or teeth fused to natural teeth with crowns on either side for support. Although bridges don’t preserve bone in the empty socket like dental implants, they do prevent adjacent teeth from shifting.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is a customized combination of cosmetic procedures focused on helping you regain smile beauty and optimize oral function. During your consultation, our restoration dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your current oral health challenges and smile goals. Together, we’ll devise a customized plan that fits your budget and unique needs. Your personalized smile makeover may include porcelain veneers, clear aligners, crowns and bridges and/or teeth whitening.

Crooked teeth almost always result in cosmetic concerns, even if their misalignment isn’t causing functional problems affecting your bite. There’s a range of orthodontic treatment available today that can be tailored to your needs. We’ll help you determine which one will most effectively correct your crooked teeth and improve the esthetics of your smile. Orthodontic treatment generally lasts between 6-24 months, depending on your unique case.

Invisalign example model


Invisalign uses a custom-made series of aligners made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. This protocol eliminates the need for cumbersome metal brackets and painful wires that need tightening. Invisalign from Dental Care and Implants is a perfect option for most adults and some teens. Each set of aligners needs to be worn 20–22 hours a day for one to two weeks, although you can remove them to eat, drink and brush and floss your teeth. Treatment can last anywhere from 12–18 months, after which you’ll need to wear a retainer to prevent teeth from moving back into their original position.
