Customized Veneers for a Stunning Smile

If you're looking for a versatile cosmetic option to address multiple dental needs at once, veneers may be perfect for you. Veneers are an excellent way to fix issues like:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Mildly misaligned teeth

We're proud to offer two forms of veneers: porcelain and composite. Although there are distinct differences that separate the two, the goal for both is to create a more appealing smile. Our McKinney cosmetic dentist will explain their differences and help you figure out which is the right option for you.


Porcelain veneers are thin shells made to match your tooth's natural appearance. The coverings are bonded to the surface of your tooth and can alter its size, shape, and color while retaining full functionality.

Porcelain is known for its durability and stain resistance. We will lightly modify your tooth's enamel for a snug and secure fit. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years.


composite veneers in McKinney, TXComposite veneers rely on dental resin placed directly on your tooth and hardened with ultraviolet light. Their application is minimally invasive and completed in as little as one office visit. An additional benefit is that if your composite veneers receive damage, our office can quickly repair them. With proper care, composite veneers can last four to eight years. Additionally, if you're not entirely comfortable with veneers, we offer tooth bonding to help resolve many of the same issues that veneers typically fix.

Improving Your Teeth's Natural Beauty with Teeth Whitening

Although teeth are durable and meant to last many years, they're still prone to discoloration. Popular beverages such as red wine, coffee, and dark juice can stain teeth with repeated consumption. Teeth whitening offers an efficient and minimally invasive way to brighten your teeth and help renew your confidence. We offer the following take-home whitening options:

Custom Trays

Our McKinney cosmetic dentist will create impressions of your upper and lower teeth during your first visit to create clear plastic trays. After the trays have been created, you'll come in for a fitting to ensure a secure and snug fit. We'll provide you with a professional-grade solution that you can inject into the trays for your desired level of whitening.

Whitening Strips

Whitening strips are thin strips coated in bleaching solution that are placed on your upper and lower teeth. This form of whitening can be an excellent option if you need to touch up your teeth before a big event like a wedding or graduation. Our whitening strips use a professional-grade teeth whitening solution only available to dental offices.

Orthodontic Monitoring

Our McKinney cosmetic dentist works with several trusted local orthodontists to help you get the care you deserve. As part of a complete smile rejuvenation, we can package the care you receive from an orthodontist with our services. As part of this treatment plan, we'll schedule and coordinate all your orthodontic appointments for a smooth and stress-free experience.

Laser Gum Contouring

When you smile, do you show more of your gumline than you'd prefer? This is called a gummy smile and is typically caused by the way your teeth grow. If you have a non-complex gummy smile, we offer gum contouring. Using a soft tissue laser, we can remove excess gum tissue and help sculpt your gumline for an ideal smile.
