Cosmetic Dentistry

At Rathke Family Dentistry, we believe all that is good begins with a smile!  We enjoy offering cosmetic dentistry services because we love seeing our patients gain confidence and peace of mind just from being able to comfortably smile!  Some of our patients' favorite cosmetic services include porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, ceramic crowns, and orthodontics.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are one of the modern go-to options for enhancing a patient's smile.  This is because they require very little reshaping of the teeth, they bond to the teeth extremely well, and they look great!  Porcelain veneers are a great choice in situations where the teeth are already mostly straight, have had little to no treatment for dental decay, and the patient desires their teeth to be a different shape and/or color.  When the right criteria are present, we can achieve amazing results by enhancing your smile with porcelain veneers!

Teeth Whitening

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services you'll see advertised on a daily basis is teeth whitening.  In fact, nowadays it's nearly impossible to watch TV, walk through the grocery store, or drive down the highway without coming across some ad for teeth whitening.

Patients will often ask us if we offer teeth whitening at our office, and the answer is a resounding yes!  While there are many ways available to whiten your teeth, including special toothpastes, over the counter whitening strips, and in-office whitening, we've found the most effective and most comfortable way to have your teeth professionally whitened is the home whitening method.

We will make custom trays for your mouth and provide whitening solution.  You can then whiten at home, on your own schedule, and at a frequency that works best for you!

Ceramic Crowns

While porcelain veneers are often a go-to cosmetic dentistry service for changing the shape and color of the front teeth, sometimes due to extensive decay or fractured tooth structure, veneers may not be the best choice for long-term success.  The solution in this case is to restore the teeth with ceramic crowns!

A crown, often referred to as a "cap", is basically a shell that covers what remains of a natural tooth to restore shape, color, and function.  Crowns require more reshaping of natural tooth structure than veneers, but with a combination of the different available high-end dental porcelains and ceramics, the final results are just as exciting!

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, the position of the teeth in your smile is often more important than the materials we use to restore them!  We are happy to provide orthodontic services to our patients at Rathke Family Dentistry in Huntsville, TX.  In fact, we have an entire page dedicated to telling you about our orthodontic services.  Click here to learn more!
