Patients often come to our Houston dentist with teeth that are cracked, badly chipped or decayed, or with aging metal fillings that have extensive damage hiding beneath them. For this kind of damage, we often recommend porcelain crowns. Custom-made to fit your tooth and fabricated from pure porcelain, crowns completely cover the tooth for ultimate protection. Our crowns never have a dark line or odd, flat appearance that some old-fashioned crowns may have. Ours look and feel so natural, you may forget that you have one!
Crowns are permanently fitted to teeth – restoring the chewing surfaces to their natural strength – to whiten, reshape and realign existing teeth for a natural, comfortable bite and more attractive appearance.
LifeSmiles is a really different dental experience. The entire staff is professional, friendly, and experts at what they do. Going to LifeSmiles is a pleasure. I never thought I would say that about a trip to the dentist. But it is so true!

Dental bridges are used to replace one or several missing teeth. If you have lost a tooth or teeth, a dental bridge is an attractive way to safeguard the integrity of the remaining teeth, stabilizing them, and preventing further damage and bone loss. Bridges are also important in reducing the risk of gum disease after tooth loss. When properly designed, they can prevent or correct bite problems and help improve speech.
A dental bridge is a custom-made false tooth or teeth placed permanently between two healthy teeth. This device fills the space where a tooth or teeth have fallen out or been removed. The bridge is held in place by porcelain crowns placed on the healthy teeth on each side of the space to be filled. Once your custom bridge is created, it is bonded in place. Our bridges are carefully designed, fitted to look astonishingly translucent and natural so that you can always feel confident, secure, and attractive.
