BracesPorcelain veneers allow us the ability to completely transform your smile into one you can be proud of for years. Advanced technology in the field of cosmetic dentistry has allowed us the ability to give patients white, straight, and natural looking teeth without the use of braces or surgery.
OrthodonticsPorcelain veneers provide an immediate smile makeover for our patients in Houston. Cosmetic dentistry can offer porcelain veneers to mask stains, spacing issues, and poorly contoured teeth. Drastic improvements are achieved by prosthodontist Dr. Tijana Stijacic without requiring additional procedures such as orthodontics or tooth whitening.
Dental ImplantsDr. Valentini focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. Her specialty includes treating oral inflammation, gum imperfections, and working with dental implants. She performs all phases of periodontics, surgical and non-surgical treatment.
VeneersPorcelain veneers are thin shells designed to look just like your natural teeth, only better. With this Houston cosmetic dentistry method, a multitude of cosmetic dental issues may be corrected.
CrownsThe posts placed by our Houston periodontist will take several months to integrate with the bone. When this osseointegration process is complete, our Houston periodontist will attach abutments to your titanium posts that will rise above the gum line in order to anchor the crowns. Your crowns are designed to look just like your missing teeth and are fitted to the abutments.
Root Canal Treatment: A dental crown is used for a variety of dental restorations, enhancing everything from weak tooth structure to root canal dental care. Houston prosthodontist Dr. Stijacic uses bridges to replace missing teeth, restoring their ability to speak clearly and eat well for our patients.
DenturesDentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
Cosmetic DentistryOn your final visit to our Houston cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Ramirez will clean and etch your natural teeth to enhance the bond of your porcelain veneers. The thin shells are adhered with dental cement that is hardened using a special dental light. This enables Dr. Ramirez to control the speed of the process, thereby allowing time to perfectly align your porcelain veneers.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Gum SurgeryLANAP® is a laser surgical procedure performed by our Houston periodontist that eliminates the bacteria that cause the bleeding gums, inflammation, and other symptoms associated with gum disease. LANAP® is performed by our Houston periodontist with the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and is the only FDA cleared protocol for the treatment of periodontal disease. Dr. Valentini offers this laser gum surgery as patients experience less pain and discomfort than they do with traditional surgery.
Tooth ExtractionsDental extractions are performed for a variety of reasons including tooth decay, injury, and for orthodontic treatment. Extractions are a relatively common procedure in most dental offices. The difficulty of the procedure varies depending on the case and the patient, however anesthesia is used to numb the area and prevent pain during the procedure.
Bone GraftingThe dentist may place a mixture of your bone marrow and some bone-grafting material around the bone graft to help speed healing. The incision is then closed with stitches.
Oral Cancer ScreeningOral pathology involves diagnosing and treating diseases of the mouth such as cysts, tumors, and precancerous and cancerous lesions. Many patients experience unusual changes in the mouth, teeth, gums, tongue, or throat that may be caused by disease. Diagnosing diseases in the mouth as early as possible is very important. The earlier a disease is diagnosed, the faster treatment and healing can begin.
Dental ExaminationMinimal sedation relieves the anxiety patients feel before and during their dental exam. However, minimal sedation allows patients to respond verbally and physically to the dentist’s directions. The patient will be awake but calm and may remember parts of the experience after the procedure is completed.
