Embarrassed by Your Smile? One of These Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Could Be for You, Texarkana, Arkansas

Have you chipped, cracked, or lost a tooth? If so, a dentist might recommend dental implants, crowns, or veneers as a solution.

Randall A. Ellis DDS in Texarkana, AR, specializes in cosmetic dentistry and recommends dental implants, porcelain crowns and bridges, or veneers to patients with missing or damaged teeth. Although you’ll need to consult with your dentist to determine which option will provide you with the most benefits, it’s important to be aware of the differences between the choices beforehand. 

Dental Implants

Inserted into your jaw during an in-office procedure, dental implants are typically made of titanium and naturally fuse with the bone in your mouth. A prosthetic tooth is attached after the area heals. Implants are a permanent solution, offering a strong and natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.

Crowns & Bridges

dental implantsDental crowns are prosthetics that cap or encircle a tooth or dental implant. While they can be made of many materials, crowns made from porcelain can be matched to the color of your natural teeth, giving your smile a consistent and natural look. Bridges fill the space left by a missing tooth by adding a false tooth between two companion teeth and placing crowns on them.


Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that go over damaged teeth to correct their appearance. When installing veneers, a dentist will shave down a damaged tooth and then cover it with a veneer. The result is a natural-looking tooth.

The staff at Randall A. Ellis DDS knows losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience, so they work quickly to help patients restore their smiles through dental implants and other cosmetic solutions. If you’ve been wanting to feel confident about your smile again, call their practice at (870) 772-1374 to schedule an appointment today. You can also learn more about their services online.
