The holiday season is here, which means plenty of get-togethers, family time, and photo ops. Of course, you’ll want to look your best in all those pictures. If you feel like your smile isn’t quite what it used to be, now is the perfect time to consider giving yourself the gift of cosmetic dentistry.
Our cosmetic dentists in McAllen have the ability to not only improve your teeth’s appearance but can help to prevent future dental health problems as well. From a basic in-office teeth whitening procedure to dental implant restorations and more, WhiteWing Dental has the cosmetic and restorative dental services you need to smile bright all season long and into the years to come.
A consultation with our McAllen dentists will help you to determine what procedures will best provide you that beautiful, attractive, confident smile you deserve. If you’re considering cosmetic or restorative dentistry, the following options are available to you at WhiteWing Dental in McAllen.
1. In-Office Teeth Whitening
One of the most common cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening is a simple procedure that can be completed in one visit. Treatments are used to restore a gorgeous white sheen to teeth that have been stained over the years because of certain foods and drinks such as coffee, wine, or tea.
Our dentists begin by protecting your gums with a rubber dam and then applying a professional grade peroxide-containing bleaching agent that will make your smile look younger and healthier. You’ll be ready for those pictures as soon as you leave our office.

2. Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings provide aesthetically appealing protection against dental decay. Made of either porcelain or composite resin, tooth-colored fillings have become the more popular – and safer – option for a number of reasons including:
- Matching the color of the surrounding tooth.
- Their ability to restore dental strength because they are bonded to the tooth.
- Being safer for teeth versus traditional metal fillings.
- Being durable and longer lasting. When properly cared for, tooth-colored fillings can last as long as 15 years.
Our McAllen dentists at WhiteWing Dental can even replace your metal dental work with tooth-colored fillings to give you back a gorgeous natural-looking smile.
3. Cosmetic Bonding
Our McAllen dental office also provides cosmetic bonding, which involves repairing decaying, damaged, or discolored teeth with materials that closely resemble your natural tooth enamel. This cosmetic procedure can be easily completed and also has the benefit of being inexpensive.
The process consists of our dentists bonding a composite resin to reshape chipped teeth, close spaces between teeth, or change the shape or color of a tooth, providing you a gorgeous smile just in time for the holidays.
4. Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implant restoration consists of replacing a lost or damaged tooth. The implant restoration process has a number of steps that begin with our McAllen dentists implanting a small titanium screw into the upper or lower jawbone where the tooth is missing. Following this step, an abutment is attached to the screw, which allows for the crown (the part that resembles the natural tooth) to be placed on top.
Dental implant restorations require sufficient lead time before they can be fully completed, so it is in your best interest to set up a consultation and comprehensive examination with WhiteWing Dental soon.
5. Other Options
There are a number of procedures and options that can help to replace missing teeth if you are missing more than just one. Crowns, bridges, and dentures, are all designed to closely match the natural look of your teeth while providing plenty of long-term health benefits. Failing to correct any issues related to missing teeth comes with risks that include further tooth loss, jawbone deterioration, and shifting occlusion.

Don’t forget that the right routine goes a long way in protecting your natural teeth and can prevent the need for major cosmetic and restorative dentistry services. It is recommended that you brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each session and floss daily. Remember to also stay hydrated with fluoridated water to keep your teeth and enamel strong.
