Top-Notch, Personalized Treatments in a Relaxing Environment

At Highland Hills Dental Center, we are skilled listeners trained to identify your main concerns and tailor a treatment plan that serves your needs, preferences, and budget. We provide you with faster, more comfortable treatments through the use of the latest technologies such as digital x-rays, panoramic scanner, laser diode, and digital radiography.

Our wide range of cosmetic services include:

Do You Provide Periodontics?

Yes. In addition to providing frequent cleanings for gum disease prevention, we offer periodontal care not only to treat gum disease but also for cosmetic reasons. Our practice performs deep cleanings and gingivectomies to treat gum disease and address your aesthetic needs.

What is Gum Contouring?

We use this procedure to revive gum tissue, making your gums look healthy and sleek. A Picasso Diode laser is used to perform this procedure, allowing you to feel comfortable and achieve fast and optimal results.

What is Crown Lengthening Good for?

This procedure addresses gummy smile issues. If you have excess gum tissue that partially covers your teeth, making them look shorter than usual, crown lengthening is the procedure used to reshape your gumline.

Six Month Smiles® to Fix Your Bite

Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment that straightens front teeth. It is an ideal treatment for bite issues, overcrowding, or wide gaps between teeth. Even though this method uses brackets and wires to straighten your front teeth, they are discreet and hardly noticeable to others.

No matter the severity of your bite misalignment, Six Month Smiles may still be right for you. To know if you qualify, we will examine your situation before recommending this option.

Top 5 Benefits of Six-Month Smiles®

  1. Discreet - These invisible braces use brackets and wires made with exceptional clarity. They are hardly visible close-up or far away.
  2. Fast - Treatment is focused only on the teeth that show when you smile. Based on the severity of your case, it can take up to 6 months to complete your treatment.
  3. Comfortable – It brings comfort to the straightening process using a material similar to memory foam called Zendura® FLX™ to fit your unique teeth snugly.
  4. Predictable - Based on your specific needs, the course of treatment is planned from beginning to end beforehand. Results are foreseeable before you start treatment.
  5. Effective – It treats mild to severe misalignment. These brackets and wires are placed on the teeth for the duration of treatment.

Snap-On Smile for a Dazzling Smile

Snap-On Smile is a removable appliance which, as the name implies, snaps over your teeth to enhance your smile. It is thin and natural-looking, making you look and feel better. If you are interested in a quick, affordable way to cover imperfections in your smile, this option may suit you.

What is the Process for Getting Snap-On Smile?

The process is simple. It involves no drills and uses no adhesives. First, we help you pick the style and shade of your new smile and create a mold of your teeth. Then the Snap-On Smile laboratory creates your custom trays. Finally, you receive your new smile cover.

Can I Eat with Snap-On?

You can eat and drink with it. Wear it every day all day, just remember to remove it before bedtime!

How Long Does It Last?

With proper care, It can typically last between two and five years. Our staff will provide you with a special cleaner for your Snap-On along with instructions on how to clean it.

Porcelain Veneers for a Perfect Smile

Known as dental porcelain laminates, they are used to correct cracks and chips by altering the shape and size of your teeth. When affixed to your enamel, they cover deep stains, giving you an appealing smile!

To place veneers, a thin layer of your enamel needs to be buffed to avoid bulkiness. We use dental cement to securely bond veneers to your target teeth. Veneers are a tooth-colored, durable option to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Dental Lumineers® - How Do They Differ from Veneers?

Lumineers are a well-known brand of veneers. They are used for the same reasons and placed using a similar procedure. However, Lumineers are thinner than porcelain veneers, making the placement process straightforward since there is no need to reshape your teeth. It requires a very slight smoothing of your enamel, allowing you to keep more of your natural tooth structure.

On the other hand, being extremely thin, Lumineers are not efficient in masking severely discolored teeth. This can make porcelain veneers a better option in this situation.
