Cosmetic Dentistry

In today's world, if there is anything you don't like about your smile, you don't have to live with it. Dentists in the Bedford, TX area offer the best treatments possible using cosmetic dentistry techniques and can improve your smile in practically any way. Some of the many options available include teeth whitening, crowns, and adult orthodontics such as Six Month Smiles. 

At Rush Creek Dentistry, we understand that your smile may have multiple cosmetic problems. This is why, rather than offering a seemingly endless number of cosmetic treatments to address all these problems, we seek to find the best, most affordable and hassle-free solutions possible. One of the best ways to transform a smile with different types of cosmetic damage is with the use of porcelain veneers or Lumineers. 

Veneers and Lumineers are thin shells that can be permanently fixed on the front of teeth to improve their appearance. Either can improve smiles that suffer from any or all of the following problems:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Minor crowding
  • Permanently discolored teeth

Lumineers are a more conservative treatment since they do not require the removal of significant amounts of tooth enamel, as veneers do. This means that Lumineers are much thinner and with moderate preparation can be placed right over the fronts of your teeth. Though they can be a permanent restoration, if you do not like your Lumineers, a dentist can remove them and you can have your old smile back.

If any of these problems are the reason you don't like your smile, you should ask a dentist about veneers and Lumineers. Your dentist will be able to discuss your desires for your smile and explain how each treatment will work to determine which will give you the results you have been looking for. 

Don't hide your smile any longer. Call Rush Creek Dentistry today to make an appointment to meet with a dentist and discover if Lumineers, veneers, or one of our other cosmetic dentistry solutions could solve all of your smile's problems.


Smile rejuvenation is something we are asked about daily. In fact, cosmetic dental procedures have become increasingly common. This is because more and more people are coming to realize the benefits of having a beautiful smile. At Rush Creek Dentistry, we believe that everyone in the Arlington area should have access to affordable and effective solutions to improve the appearance of the smile. We have seen firsthand the increase in confidence and self-esteem that comes with a transformed smile. 

Veneers and Lumineers are both versatile porcelain restorations that can completely alter the look of your smile. They are both adhered with dental bonding to the front of teeth and can disguise a vast majority of imperfections including permanent stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and differing lengths. 

Lumineers differ from traditional porcelain veneers in that they are about half the thickness. They are also considered a more conservative cosmetic procedure. Lumineers can usually be placed without removing any tooth enamel (which is required with veneers). 

Other advantages of Lumineers include:

  • Placed in a single appointment – this means you can avoid temporary replacements and multiple appointments.
  • Reversible – Because no enamel is removed, Lumineers are considered reversible.
  • No anesthetic required – This is because there is no preparation required.

Like veneers, your new Lumineers will be made to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. If you are just receiving one, to cover a damaged tooth, it will be matched to blend in with neighboring teeth. If you are opting for Lumineers to makeover your entire smile, you can work with the dentist to choose the optimal shade. 

If you have been thinking about making improvements to your smile, now is the time to contact us and learn more about Lumineers and veneers. During our consultation process, we will evaluate the problem areas on your teeth and help you choose the option that makes the most sense for your situation, taking into account budget, needs, and desires. We take the time to help you decide upon a solution that will transform your smile.
