Have you convinced yourself that you’ll never be able to afford the cosmetic dental treatment you need to make your smile more attractive? Are you scared to pursue cosmetic dentistry because you’ve heard it’s incredibly painful?

Then you need to hear the truth from our League City, TX team!


The Real Truth About Cosmetic Dentistry

We want you to feel confident about your decision to pursue your dream smile with cosmetic dentistry at Tieken Smiles. That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to clarify certain misconceptions about cosmetic dentistry that might be standing in the way of the smile what you want.

*Not All Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments Are Costly*

We surprise patients all the time with the affordability of some of our cosmetic dentistry options at Tieken Smiles. It seems everyone expects every treatment to cost thousands of dollars, when in reality, you can enhance your smile without having to take out a second mortgage!

Two of the most cost-effective cosmetic solutions are teeth whitening treatment and tooth bonding. Both can be done in as little on one convenient appointment and go a long way in giving you a fresh, radiant smile.

You shouldn’t believe the lie that you’re doomed to a life of embarrassing smile imperfections unless you’re willing to hand over your life savings! You can radically improve the appearance of your smile quickly and affordably in a number of ways at Tieken Smiles!

*There Is A Right & Wrong Way To Whiten Teeth*

You’ve probably tried, or at least thought about trying, one of those teeth whitening products from the drugstore to brighten your smile. But there is a wrong way to whiten your teeth, and that’s one of them.

It’s not that you don’t get any results at all with an over-the-counter treatment, but the ones that do lift teeth stains can only do so at a tiny fraction of the powerful whitening methods you find at the dentist office.

More than that, store-brand whitening systems are universally produced using one-size-fits-all trays and strips that can leave your teeth and gums vulnerable to harm.

If you’re really looking to lighten the shade of your teeth, you won’t find any whitening treatment as effective and safe as we can provide in our professional dental office. Dr. Tieken is certified and experienced at the careful application of prescription-strength whitening agents that can dramatically improve your smile’s sparkle!

*Many Cosmetic Procedures Are Painless*

If you’ve accepted the myth that all dental treatments are inevitably excruciating experiences, you could be letting a lie stand between you and a gorgeous smile.

It’s understandable that patients, particularly those with intense anxiety about dental care, may be a little apprehensive about getting cosmetic treatment out of a fear of pain. But even the most invasive, complicated dental treatment can be virtually painless given today’s modern technology, local anesthetics, and sedation dentistry.

At Tieken Smiles, for example, we offer massage chairs and innovative headsets that use special technology to induce a calming state of relaxation for our patients.

We also rely on modern numbing techniques and oral, inhaled, and IV sedation to suit your needs so that any care you receive in our League City, TX practice is as soothing, positive, and pain-free an experience as possible.

*Cosmetic Dental Work Can Look Natural*

To assume that all cosmetic dental work results in an artificial-looking smile is a mistake. It’s often how people look at plastic surgery.

We’ve all heard horror stories about plastic surgery gone wrong and urban legends about botched procedures from scam artists posing as highly-trained specialists. On a more realistic note, you’ve also probably encountered people who are happy with their plastic surgery experience despite the reality that it makes them look a bit artificial.

Yet, we don’t necessarily believe that all cosmetic surgery results are like that.

What we can say is that this might be the case if you put your trust in the wrong hands.

The same truth holds for cosmetic dental treatment. It’s about putting your procedure in the hands of an experienced, highly-qualified professional.

So in regard to the handiwork of Dr. Tieken and our cosmetic team, you know you’re getting the highest quality of care using the finest materials and advanced methods for crafting your dream smile. Our restorative and cosmetic results are incredibly lifelike and natural as you can find in modern dentistry, so you don’t have to worry about your smile looking too artificial when you trust our team.

Nothing fake to see here!

Schedule A Consultation!

One of the reasons many people hesitate to go after the things they want in life is fear of the unknown.

When you don’t have firsthand knowledge to inform your decisions, it’s natural to listen to what others have to say about a particular experience. And too often, it’s easy to believe the worst.

Our team at Tieken Smiles hopes today’s blog has helped in setting the record straight on some of the commonly-held misconceptions about cosmetic dental treatments. We don’t want anyone to keep from having the smile of their dreams, especially when it’s rooted in baseless claims and downright falsehoods.

Now you know that all cosmetic treatments are different, in terms of cost, purpose, and process. What does remain consistent, at least with cosmetic dentistry in our League City, TX dental practice, are the stunning results and happy patients! Ours is a standard of excellence patients can count on, and we’re honored to be your trusted cosmetic team that will make you love your smile.
