Cosmetic dentistry is an art form. At My Smile Artist in San Antonio, Dr. Imam and Dr. Schroder blend art, science, and craftsmanship to produce highly aesthetic results that bring your smile to life.
What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?
It’s easy to find a family dentist who is willing to close gaps between your teeth, repair chips in them, or give you a complete smile makeover. But only a cosmetic dentist will ensure you receive beautiful natural-looking results that you’ll love.
What enables cosmetic dentists to design and craft expressive smiles?
- Advanced training
- Artistic inclination
- An understanding of which tools, techniques, and materials are required to achieve lifelike results
Dr. Imam’s and Dr. Schroder’s Training
Both Dr. Imam and Dr. Schroder have advanced training and experience in cosmetic dentistry. They are leaders in the field who regularly participate in continuing education to remain current with cosmetic dentistry techniques, tools, and technology.
After dental school, Dr. Imam completed two years of advanced training in a general dentistry residency program where he became proficient in a variety of areas, including cosmetic dentistry. As a faculty member at the School of Dentistry at University of Texas (UT) Health San Antonio, he taught dental students and treated patients in the faculty practice clinic.
For 12 years, Dr. Schroder was assistant professor in the Postdoctoral General Practice Program at the UT School of Dentistry in San Antonio. In February 2008, Dr. Schroder was elected into membership in the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry as a dentist whose contributions to the field are recognized as exemplary.
How Our Cosmetic Dentists Create Beautiful Smiles
A smile makeover from My Smile Artist comes with a beautiful smile guarantee—we will not permanently bond a smile makeover unless you love it. Dissatisfied patients of other practices come to our dentists to have their smile makeovers redone.
- Digital design – Digital Smile Design lets you see how variations in the design will affect your smile and facial appearance, and it helps develop a treatment plan for predictable results. Dr. Imam and Dr. Schroder include details in your smile design that only an artist could provide. They include your input to produce results that compliment your facial features and personality. Read our Digital Smile Design page for details.
- High-quality materials – Materials of the highest quality are used for a smile makeover with porcelain veneers or to craft a dental crown for restoring a badly decayed or damaged tooth. The results are so lifelike that they can’t be distinguished from your natural teeth.
- Try-in – A try-in is your opportunity to test drive your smile makeover before it is bonded to your teeth. We will ensure it is exactly the smile you want. If you don’t absolutely love it, we will send your porcelain veneers back to the lab for adjustments or to be completely remade.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Dr. Imam and Dr. Schroder offer comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services.
Porcelain veneers can transform one tooth, multiple teeth, or your entire smile. They enhance teeth that are misaligned, discolored, or poorly shaped. Thin wafers of porcelain that mimic the characteristics, color, and translucency of your natural teeth are bonded to them. Digital technology allows you to participate in the smile design process and visualize yourself with a new smile. Visit our porcelain veneers page for details.
A crown completely covers a broken, worn, or severely decayed tooth. Dr. Imam and Dr. Schroder use metal-free e.max and zirconia crowns to produce restorations that look like your own natural teeth.
Dental bonding conceals cracks, chips, and small gaps. Dr. Imam and Dr. Schroder skillfully blend composite to match natural tooth color and translucency. The bonding is applied, shaped, and polished for natural-looking results.
Teeth whitening is a fast and easy way to rejuvenate your smile. In-office treatment provides dramatic results in about an hour. And in just two weeks, take-home whitening will give you a brilliant smile. Visit our teeth whitening page for more information.
