If you have a tooth or teeth that are cosmetically damaged, you may well be able to have this smile problem corrected by getting porcelain veneers. Many patients come to our dental practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS, to get Houston veneers or to have other tooth restorations performed; our two top-notch dentists are Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn and Dr. Russell R. Hilliard.
Houston veneers are used to fix many different types of cosmetic tooth problems. Our veneers are actually thin porcelain shells which are made to permanently attach to the front of teeth, and will only cover the front of the tooth. A patient can have either one or several dental veneers, depending on the tooth problem being corrected. Our dentist uses porcelain veneers to provide patients with beautiful, as standing smiles. If our dentist determines upon exam that your tooth is also damaged and needs to be strengthened to improve its function, he may instead recommend that you get a dental crown; this is because porcelain veneers can only be used to correct cosmetic dental problems. Porcelain veneers can effectively fix teeth that: have uneven gaps between them; are too short; are misshapen; are chipped; are slightly uneven; have surface cracks in the enamel; are discolored and cannot be corrected using traditional whitening methods; and many other different cosmetic dental issues. The porcelain veneers will perfectly color-match adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell you have them. Porcelain veneers are a cost-effective way to fix many different types of cosmetic smile problems, and often can be applied to the patient’s teeth without the patient even needing any type of local anesthesia. Your veneers will look like your natural teeth and are resistant to staining.

If you need to have a tooth restored with a dental crown, but do not relish the thought of having to return for several dental visits, you will want to learn more about CEREC crowns at our dental practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS. This procedure is a way for patients to get same-day crowns from our 77035 CEREC dentist. Just one of our expert dentists is Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn.
At our dental practice, we offer both porcelain restorations and 77035 CEREC crowns for patients who need to have a tooth restored or strengthened. CEREC crowns can also be used to simply improve the look of a tooth. However, crowns are very often used as a way to strengthen a tooth that has too many fillings in it and may be on the verge of cracking, or as a way to restore a tooth after a root canal procedure is performed. While a porcelain crown can take several trips to the dentist’s office, CEREC crowns are created and installed in one single short visit to our dental practice. CEREC is an exciting technology that is used to restore damaged teeth. The CEREC crown will also keep your smile looking natural. No one will be able to tell that you have a CEREC crown in your mouth, as it will be made to perfectly match the adjacent teeth. This type of restoration is metal free and made of high-grade ceramic material; it is fully compatible with the natural tissues in your mouth. Your individual CEREC crown will be created by our dentist who will use a 3-D imaging camera along with CEREC’s software. A machine at our office will create your actual restoration from a single piece of ceramic. Our dentists will then bond the CEREC restoration to your tooth using state-of-the-art adhesive dentistry materials. You will not need to return to our office for any follow-up visits regarding this particular procedure.
If you would like to make an appointment so that you too can receive a same-day 77035 CEREC crown, contact us today.
Are you unhappy because you never were able to have your teeth straightened when you were a child? If so, we have some great news for you. Today adults and teens are able to have their teeth straightened using Invisalign invisible braces. This means that at our cosmetic dentistry practice, patients are able to have their teeth straightened in a manner which will allow them to have discrete orthodontic care. Since the Invisalign clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn, this means that patients are able to attend work, social gatherings, and school without anyone even knowing that they are having their teeth straightened. If you are interested in learning if you are a good candidate for Houston Invisalign, we hope you will come and visit our cosmetic dentistry practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS.
At our cosmetic dentistry practice, our two top-notch dentists are Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn and Dr. Russell R. Hilliard. If you are thinking about getting treatment with Houston Invisalign, you can be very confident when you come to our office because our office is a Certified Invisalign Provider. You are able to come to our office for a complimentary consultation to see if treatment with Invisalign will work for you. Unfortunately, Invisalign cannot be used to correct all smile situations, but there are many different types of smile problems which can be corrected using Invisalign. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign invisible braces, our dentist will use CAD/CAM computer technology to have a personalized set of aligners created just for you. Depending on the bite situation being corrected, your set of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Aligners are worn sequentially, for two weeks at a time.
Other reasons why our patients thoroughly enjoy treatment with Houston Invisalign is that patients are able to eat anything they want during the entire treatment process. This is because the clear plastic aligners are removed while you eat. Additionally, the aligners are removed during teeth cleaning so that your teeth can be as healthy at the end of treatment, as they were at the beginning of treatment. Whether you are an adult who is interested in being treated with Invisalign, or a teenager who would be treated with Invisalign Teen, contact us today for an appointment to meet with our cosmetic dentist.
If you want to make sure that you have healthy gums and teeth, you will need to do two things. First, you will have to make sure that you follow a great at-home dental cleaning regimen, including proper tooth brushing and flossing on a daily basis. Secondly, you will want to make sure that you come into our dental practice for periodic teeth cleanings. Our Houston Best dentist will also provide you with a dental checkup every six months to make sure that your teeth and gums are remaining healthy.
At our dental practice, Rayburn & Hilliard DDS, our expert and highly trained dentists are Dr. Rodney K. Rayburn and Dr. Russell R. Hilliard. It is impossible to have healthy teeth without healthy gums. This is because if gums develop gum disease, infection from the gum disease can travel down to the jawbone. This can cause your teeth to loosen and even to fall out. Conversely, it is impossible to have healthy gums without healthy teeth. If teeth have tartar and plaque buildup on them, not only will they be much more prone to developing cavities, but they will also contribute to the development of gum disease. When plaque and bacteria remain on teeth, these materials contribute to the development of deep pockets to form between your teeth and gums. When these pockets form, plaque, bacteria, and tartar all gather in the deep pockets and infection forms. At this point you will have gum disease. For all these reasons, it is very important that you have teeth cleanings at our dental practice on a regular basis. Our teeth cleanings will thoroughly remove all plaque, bacteria, and tartar from your teeth. Tartar can only be removed with professional dental cleaning instruments since it is a mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth. Our Houston Best dentist will also examine your gums to make sure they are not developing any type of gum disease.
If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, our Houston Best dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to get your gums back to good health. If it is seen that you are developing mild to moderate gum disease, and that deep pockets have already formed, our dentist will probably recommend that you have a periodontal procedure of scaling and root planing. This procedure is like a deep cleaning for the gums which will help your gums return to good health. If you would like to make an appointment to come in to see one of our expert dentists, or to have a teeth cleaning, contact us today.
Great smiles are only as great as the teeth that make up those smiles. Not only do the teeth in the smile have to be straight but they also have to be clean and bright. A 77035 teeth cleaning is one step in offering the world a glimpse of clean teeth when smiling. Aside from the cosmetic value of clean teeth there is a far more important reason to always have clean teeth and that is to defend against tooth decay and gum disease that can spring from poor dental hygiene. The preventative care program offered at our practice, Rayburn & Hilliard, DDS has been designed to keep teeth clean and your mouth free from bacteria and decay.
Our preventative program is really a partnership between our practice and you. The participation of our patients in this preventative program is crucial. For your part you must do daily tooth maintenance in the form of proper brushing and flossing several times per day and the use of dental rinses. Our hygienist will teach you the proper maintenance techniques and give you instructions. For families with young children it is particularly important that they cooperate, so our staff makes it a fun experience instead of a chore. The daily at-home maintenance is supported by a 77035 teeth cleaning twice a year. During these sessions our hygienist will clean all the tartar and plaque away from around the teeth as well as between the teeth. This treatment gets rid of the hard substances that daily brushing can’t remove, which could cause tooth decay. Our hygienist will also scrape the plaque and debris away from the gums, which will help prevent gum disease that can lead to tooth and bone loss.
When paired with regular checkups by our doctors 77035 teeth cleaning are an effective tool for preventing both cavities and gum disease. Clean healthy teeth are the foundation for good oral health and a great smile. To prevent tooth decay and the severe problems that comes with it takes diligence in home brushing as well as regular teeth cleanings. Why not come into our office and discuss how together we can prevent tooth problems for your whole family?
