Canted Midline: Your Dentist in Friendswood TX Explains

Houston Cosmetic DentistsAt Dr. David Montz DDS, PA & Associates, your dentist in Friendswood TX, we consider many factors when designing a smile for any smile makeover patient.

One of the smile design elements involved is the facial midline. The facial midline can be established by drawing an imaginary line from the center of the eyebrows to the center of the two peaks in the top lip, known as Cupid’s bow.

A proficient cosmetic dentist considers the length and angle of the facial midline to accurately position the elements of a particular smile makeover, such as porcelain veneers or dental implants. When front teeth restorations do not line up with the facial midline, it is called a canted midline. This is a common mistake found in the cosmetic work of inexperienced cosmetic dentists.

Many individuals don’t realize the extent of 3-D engineering required in cosmetic dentistry. In addition to the orientation in relation to the facial midline, there is also the angle and size of the teeth in relation to each other and in relation to the size and shape of the lips and gums.

If you are considering an extensive smile makeover, you want to entrust your smile to an experienced cosmetic dentist. When you have a smile design consultation with us, feel free to ask probing questions about our experience and technical design procedures. Look at the pictures of some of our smile makeover patients.

Friendswood Wants Silver Screen Smiles

Houston Wants Silver Screen Smiles

With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many dental patients are interested in having a smile like the stars. With an experienced dentist and the right smile makeover procedures, anyone can have a smile they want to show off.

Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. Most drugstores sell over-the-counter whitening strips and gels. Your  dentist can recommend an effective one, or he or she may offer in-office bleaching. This is a quick way to see whiter teeth in less than an hour.

Most cosmetic dentists will recommend a dental implant for missing teeth. Because a dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. It prevents jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth.

Veneers cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each individual patient. These are useful for patients who want to fill in gaps, or who have broken or stained teeth that they would like to hide.

Enamel shaping, bonding, braces, and gum contouring are other successful treatments that can be used to help your teeth look their best.

I’m Dr. David Montz, a trusted and experienced Friendswood dentist. If you are looking for quality dental care in the Pearland, Alvin, or Manviel area, I hope you’ll give us a call at 832-895-5120 to schedule a consultation.

We offer sedation dentistry, CEREC dental crowns, procelain veneers, and teeth whitening.

Porcelain Veneers And Instant Orthodontics For Friendswood

Friendswood Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics If you have been paying attention to the Friendswood orthodontics scene in recent years, you probably know about invisible braces and speed braces. These new teeth straightening procedures have been welcomed by many people, especially Houston adults who want an alternative to traditional metal braces.

There’s more good news for Pearland residents who want to straighten their teeth. How about ‘instant orthodontics’?

If you want immediate teeth straightening, you can get beautiful porcelain veneers from David C. Montz, DDS!

David Montz at David C. Montz, DDS can help you determine if porcelain veneers are for you.

In addition to correcting minor tooth misalignment, porcelain veneers are used to whiten teeth and restore chipped teeth in Alvin and Manviel. Porcelain veneers are attached to the front of teeth and often require no removal of healthy tooth structure. Another advantage? They are usually less expensive than complete crown restorations but look just as natural.

To schedule a consultation, call David C. Montz, DDS at 832-895-5120. Porcelain veneers may be the best way for you to receive a smile makeover at a fraction of the cost.
