Technological advancements in natural-looking, tooth-colored dental materials make today’s cosmetic dental treatments more durable and predictable than in years past. And it’s now possible to use more conservative cosmetic dentistry techniques to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible, depending o your specific situations.
We’re Cosmetic Dentistry Experts!
At KC Dental, we offer a full array of state-of-the-art cosmetic dental services, including the following:
Dental Veneers: Composite or porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks. Veneers can help improve the appearance of worn down or severely discolored teeth. Veneers can also be offered as an alternative to braces to correct spaces in your smile.
Take Home Custom Bleaching Trays: This bleaching system is a safe, easy, and inexpensive way to help give you your desired smile. Custom fit bleaching trays are made in office and are ready to pick up within a few days. The trays are delivered with special bleaching agent that is made to go inside your custom trays. The bleaching agent is designed to help remove surface stains and give you a whiter, brighter smile.
Dental Implants: We utilize the latest technology to provide high-quality dental implants. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or can be used to support prosthetic appliances such as dentures. See our Periodontal services page for more details.
In addition to our general services, we have in-office specialists that provide services such as implant placement and root canal treatment, which eliminates the need for our patients to travel to specialists offices to receive their dental treatment.
Our office utilizes the latest technologies and techniques to ensure we provide the best family, cosmetic, and specialty dentistry services in the Northwest Austin area.

Our team is passionate about educating our patients on the importance of oral hygiene. Our staff is highly educated, experienced and has the tools, technique and technology to improve your smile easily and comfortably.
Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with enhancing or fixing the aesthetic flaws of a person’s teeth. Typically, a person will get a cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve their smile or the appearance of their gums.
This depends on the type of procedure. Veneers, for example, can cost hundreds of dollars per tooth, whereas a teeth whitening procedure will cost significantly less with prescribed DIY options.
Generally speaking, dental insurance will not cover cosmetic dentistry procedures unless there is a clear underlying medical need.
This depends on the type of procedure. The average teeth whitening procedure takes up to 90 minutes, whereas the procedure and process behind veneers can take roughly three weeks.
There are many benefits to cosmetic dental procedures. These include:
● Better oral health
● Improved smile
● Stronger bite
● Better teeth shape
