The year is rapidly coming to a close, and that means many people are starting to think about their New Year’s Resolutions. This will take most to the gym or make them drastically alter their diet, but isn’t there another way? Can’t you improve your appearance and boost your confidence now, and not have to wait months for results? Yes you can, and the answer lies with your cosmetic dentist in Richardson, Dr. Tom McDougal.

The Answer Is A New Smile

Your teeth might be perfectly healthy, but that doesn’t mean you like how they look. They may be discolored or chipped, or perhaps you have metal fillings that stick out whenever you talk or laugh. You’d be so much happier with just a few subtle changes, and that is where cosmetic dentistry can help. It enhances the centerpiece of your entire image: your smile. Its focus is to give you the smile you’ve always wanted and increase your overall sense of well-being. Dr. McDougal knows a beautiful smile can do a lot for a person, and he can help you get one just in time for the new year.


A simple fact is that people are drawn to white teeth. However, keeping them pristine over time can be difficult. Factors such as coffee, wine, tobacco, diet, and even genetics can easily leave your teeth dull and discolored.

You can now do something about it. Two quick visits to our office can send you home with a custom-made take-home kit. Our kits are made just for you and use much higher quality products than ones you can pick up from the store. You simply use the kit as directed for 2 weeks to get the full result. It can give you a smile 6-10 shades whiter in the comfort of your own home.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Everyone notices metal fillings because they are such a different color than your natural teeth. Whenever one of our doctors repairs a cavity, they want the tooth to be healthy and beautiful, and they’re able to do that with tooth-colored fillings. Rather than metal, tooth-colored fillings use a composite resin to fill in your tooth’s lost structure, all the while blending in seamlessly with your smile. The resin is able to bond to your teeth more securely than traditional metal fillings and requires less of your tooth to be removed. This means you get the best when it comes to look, effectiveness, and durability, all with one treatment.

All-Porcelain Restorations

Severely damaged teeth can be brought back to life to revitalize your smile. Porcelain is able to better replicate a tooth’s appearance and strength than metal, which is why we always use it for our crowns, inlays, and onlays.  The ceramic is also non-porous, making the restorations practically stain-proof. You don’t just get your smile back with porcelain restorations, you get a better one.

Porcelain Veneers

Do you have broken, discolored, or misaligned teeth? How about large, obvious gaps? You may have all of them, and separate procedures to fix each problem would be both expensive and time-consuming.

A much simpler option is to get porcelain veneers. They are able to fix and mask all of these cosmetic issues with one procedure. They are custom-designed ceramic coverings that are fitted to the front of your teeth, and you can get them in as little as two visits. They are their own complete smile makeover, and can give you any kind of result you desire.


Want to straighten your teeth without the look and discomfort of metal braces? Invisalign can give you the best of everything when it comes to appearance, effectiveness, and comfort. It uses clear plastic aligner trays to gently and gradually straighten your teeth over time. Only you will notice that you are wearing the aligners because they are nearly invisible. They are also easily removable, allowing you to eat and clean your teeth like normal. You get all of the benefits of braces without any of the drawbacks.

Any Questions?

Most of these treatments can be completed in one or two easy visits, so what are you waiting for? Come get the smile of your dreams and become the best version of yourself just in time for 2017. Make an appointment with your dentist in Richardson today.
