You may think that achieving your dream smile would take many long visits to our Waco dentist office. However, Dr. Locke offers some cosmetic treatments that can improve your smile in only one visit.
Dr. Locke offers the Zoom! in-office whitening treatment to help brighten your smile. The Zoom! system uses a peroxide bleaching agent to remove surface stains and whiten the shade of your enamel. In just one office visit, your teeth can look eight to ten shades lighter. Periodic touch-ups can help keep your smile bright, but overall, you will see a major difference after just one visit.
Cosmetic bonding can correct minor tooth flaws in a single appointment. Dr. Locke will apply a composite resin material to your teeth and sculpt it to the ideal shape and size. He will then use a special curing light to harden the material and blend it with your natural teeth. After the bonding has set, Dr. Locke will polish the resin to make your smile shine. During bonding, Dr. Locke will not need to remove any of your natural tooth structure. We can apply the bonding in just one cosmetic dentist visit, but touch-ups may still be required to keep your new teeth clear of stains and chips.
Composite Resin Fillings
Fillings are used to repair a decayed tooth. Traditional dental fillings used amalgam that leaves dark or silver spots in your smile. Dr. Locke, however, uses a composite resin material for all his dental restorations. This safe, putty-like material will match your natural tooth color to keep your smile white and healthy.
If you desire more complex cosmetic treatments, Dr. Locke can still enhance your smile with just a few appointments. Dental crowns, implants, and veneers generally require two to three visits to complete and transform your smile.
We understand that you want to change your smile in a flash with the shortest appointment time necessary, and we will do our best to satisfy your preferences. Contact Dr. Locke at our dentist office in Waco, Texas, at (254) 776-4888 to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
