Let Teens Express Their Personality With Custom Braces

May 1, 2020

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry,Dental Crowns,Porcelain Veneers — Ritchie Dental Group @ 1:46 pm

Marble Falls Invisalign Remember when Horseshoe Bay adolescents undergoing orthodontic treatment were mortified by their metal mouth? Thankfully, for most young men and women, those days are over.

Wear Your Braces Proudly

Many Marble Falls adolescents wear their braces proudly and make no effort to hide them. They know they don’t need to wait until their teeth are corrected to flaunt a striking smile; they enjoy flashing their brightly-colored braces in all their glory.

Express Your Personality…

Another plus? Just as they mix and match their clothes and shoes, teens can change their wires and bands. Braces have become another fun way for fashion-forward Kingsland and Meadowlakes teens to express their personality.

…or Not

Of course, there are still some kids (and many adults!) that are not thrilled about having metallic fuchsia bands and neon yellow wires adorning their teeth. Discrete clear aligners are virtually undetectable and can align teeth just as quickly and effectively as metal braces.

Aligners are Removable

Aligners are not permanently attached to the teeth. They can easily be slipped out for brushing, flossing, meals, and sports. If your Marble Falls child plays a musical instrument that defies standard braces, removable aligners may be the best option.

If you or your little ones need orthodontic treatment in the Horseshoe Bay area, call Ritchie Dental Group at 830-637-7227 to schedule a consultation with Greg Ritchie.

We provide comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dentistry including porcelain veneers, restorative dentistry, and dental crowns. If you need affordable state-of-the-art dental care in Marble Falls, let us tell you about our financing options.

Whatever your age, if you want to straighten your teeth while making a fashion statement, don’t hesitate to get bands to match every outfit in your closet!

When Should My Child Have An Orthodontic Evaluation?

April 3, 2020

Filed under: Dental Crowns,General Dentistry,Porcelain Veneers — Ritchie Dental Group @ 4:59 pm

Child-Friendly Marble Falls Pediatric Dentist

It’s a question that many moms and dads in Marble Falls debate: When should I take my child in for their first orthodontic evaluation? The answer may be a little earlier than you think.

We recommend bringing children in by the age of seven. Even if you don’t see any signs that your child will need braces. It’s essential to have an exam and X-rays to know exactly how tooth development is progressing.

How about dental visits for pediatric dental care? We recommend bringing your child to a family or pediatric dentist by the age of one.

Not only will your dentist want to clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride, but it’s also critical for little ones to get used to seeing the dentist.

Starting early dental visits will mean that later in life your child will be less likely to require extensive restorative dental work.

If your child is uneasy about visiting Ritchie Dental Group, you might want to bring them in a few days before to visit our office. Call us at
830-637-7227 to set up a time for your child to meet our friendly and comprehensive team.

At Ritchie Dental Group we offer:

dental crowns
general dentistry
porcelain veneers

Dr. Ritchie and your pediatric dentist work together to ensure your child receives the best treatment possible.

A Facelift For Your Teeth?

April 5, 2019

porcelain veneers price Horseshoe Bay

Have you ever wished for a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Porcelain Veneers are an effective and versatile cosmetic dentistry procedure that we at Ritchie Dental Group offer to our clients in the Marble Falls, Texas area.

Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth and are a terrific way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections, particularly if you have:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Unevenly worn teeth
  • Cracks in teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Minimal Misalignment.

Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth. Porcelain Veneers are more durable than Dental Bonding, which is sometimes used to fix the same varieties of imperfections. Dental Bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the relative costs of the two procedures.

How many Veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to enhance and the overall condition of your teeth. at our Marble Falls, Texas dental office, Dr. Greg Ritchie will advise you on the most effective strategy.

The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth influence the outcome as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them created in the same “batch” at the lab.

The first step in the Veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to construct the Veneers to the perfect size, shape, color, and extent of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians (yes, like ours) elevate the level of artistry in this. It is an involved process, but we are committed to seeing it through.

Many patients wonder if Veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the Veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth very slightly, with proper care, Veneers can last up to 15 years. Our team can advise you in detail on proper care of Porcelain Veneers .

If you are looking for a dentist with an artistic eye for flawless Porcelain Veneers, give us a call at Ritchie Dental Group. We have been serving the general and cosmetic dentistry needs of those in the Marble Falls, Texas area since 2000. Our cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry services also include:

  • Zoom! Teeth Whitening
  • Orthodontics
  • Invisalign Clear Braces
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings and Restorations

Give us a call today so that we may help make you one more satisfied patient!

Restorative Dentistry in Burnet: Restore Or Replace

June 1, 2018

Filed under: Dental Implants,Porcelain Veneers,Restorative Dentistry — Ritchie Dental Group @ 9:15 am

restoration dentistry in Burnet

As the saying goes, there is more than one way to skin a cat, although we don’t know why anyone would want to. Regardless, there is more than one way to fix a tooth. If you are the lucky owner of a set of perfectly healthy teeth, you may never need any of these procedures. However, if you are like most Burnet residents, you will probably need to restore a tooth eventually. With restorative dentistry in Burnet, you can have the smile you always dreamed of. Today’s post looks at six restoration procedures that are used routinely to repair damaged teeth.

A Porcelain Veneer
Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin covers can hide a chip or crack or correct the alignment of a tooth that is slightly crooked.

A Filling, Inlay, or Onlay
This procedure has been used to restore teeth for over a century, although the materials and techniques have advanced considerably. One fairly new option is a white filling replacement for metal fillings. A traditional filling is shaped and molded after it is applied to the tooth. Because inlays and onlays are constructed in a dental lab, they are commonly called indirect fillings. Inlays are applied to just the center of the biting surface of a tooth (not to a cusp or point) and are generally smaller than onlays. An onlay restores one or more cusps of a tooth.

Dental Bonding
Bonding is used to fix chips, cracks, stains, and make teeth longer. It is also sometimes used to fill cavities. A skilled cosmetic dentist applies pliable composite resin and molds it to the precise shape required. The resin is then hardened with a special light.

A Dental Crown
A crown replaces the entire visible portion of the tooth, restoring appearance, strength, and function. Crowns are used for teeth that have had a root canal, teeth with acute decay, the replacement tooth in a dental bridge, and the visible portion of a dental implant. Crowns can be made of metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all ceramic, or resin.

Dental Implants
Many dentists consider a dental implant to be the ultimate restoration because it restores the entire tooth – both root and crown. Most dental implant recipients report that the implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. With restorative dentistry in Burnet, an implant can prevent bone recession which is common at an extraction site. Dental implants are used in a variety of applications such as anchoring dentures and dental bridges.

For more information about restorative dentistry in Burnet or any of these procedures, call Ritchie Dental Group today!

teeth whitening Marble Falls

So you want to whiten your teeth? It’s an affordable way to upgrade your smile, look younger, and feel more confident when you interact with others. At Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls, there are a few things we recommend when it comes to teeth whitening:

  1. Meet with us for a consultation first. There are several different teeth whitening systems and a consultation will help you establish which treatment plan is best for you.
  2. It is vital that you understand whitening won’t do anything to existing fillings, veneers, or crowns.
  3. During your consultation, decide how many shades lighter you want your teeth to be.
  4. With any teeth whitening system, tooth sensitivity may occur. In most cases, it won’t last for more than a day or so. Call Ritchie Dental Group if it lasts longer.

We offer Zoom! Whitening, which is considered one of the safest and most effective professional-grade whitening procedures available. It uses hydrogen peroxide gels activated by LED lamps to produce dazzling white smiles, in as little as one hour.

Ritchie Dental Group, with offices in Marble Falls and Brady, provides other cosmetic dentistry services, such as porcelain veneers. We also offer general and family dentistry, and love seeing the youngest of your brood for pediatric dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.

What’s The Latest With Veneers?

January 6, 2017

Filed under: Porcelain Veneers — Ritchie Dental Group @ 9:22 am

Marble Falls Prepless Veneers One of the latest breakthroughs in Marble Falls cosmetic dentistry is prepless veneers. Though thousands of Burnet and Kingsland smile restoration patients who have received traditional veneers are happy with the results, some Texas dental patients have delayed this procedure because they do not want to lose healthy tooth structure.

Marble Falls prepless veneers are a less-invasive procedure for transforming Horseshoe Bay smiles. New  prepless veneers at Ritchie Dental Group are incredibly thin shells which adhere to the face of teeth and require no removal of tooth enamel. Most Marble Falls prepless veneers are about the thickness of two pieces of paper. Because the color is built into the veneers (instead of being applied after fabrication), they look like your natural teeth–only better!

Our experienced Texas ceramists are skilled artists. They create each custom veneer with the optimum shape, color and thickness for your new smile. Another great feature of the Ritchie Dental Group prepless veneers application procedure is that it requires no anesthesia or drilling.

If you are embarrassed by misaligned, discolored or broken teeth, prepless veneers may be a smile restoration solution that you can feel good about.

Call Ritchie Dental Group to learn more about prepless veneers. It is the first step toward your dazzling new smile!

What Can Veneers Do For Horseshoe Bay Smiles?

November 25, 2016

Filed under: Porcelain Veneers — Ritchie Dental Group @ 2:25 pm

porcelain veneers cost Horseshoe Bay

Hello, and welcome to our Ritchie Dental Group cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have. The question is, “What exactly are porcelain veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are generally used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

If you visit your dentist for veneers, he or she will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a small portion of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

I hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. Ritchie Dental Group offers all the services you need to create your very best smile. Ask us about gum contouring, smile makeovers, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces.

If you are looking for a dentist with know-how creating beautiful porcelain veneers, give Ritchie Dental Group a call. We are Dr. Greg Ritchie, and we have been practicing dentistry since 2000.

Please call 830-637-7227 and a member of our friendly and comprehensive staff can schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry.

How Do Veneers Create Stunning Smiles In Horseshoe Bay?

November 6, 2015

Filed under: Porcelain Veneers — Tags: , — Ritchie Dental Group @ 11:36 am

Veneers Create Stunning Smiles in Horseshoe Bay Veneers have a multitude of applications in Marble Falls cosmetic dentistry. With veneers, you can transform your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Is your tooth enamel worn and thin? Tooth-colored porcelain veneers have the brilliance and translucency of healthy tooth enamel. Many Horseshoe Bay dental patients have received veneers to cover worn enamel. Some believe they look twenty years younger!

Have your teeth developed uneven edges? Tooth grinding, natural wear and other factors can roughen tooth edges. Veneers are a minimally invasive correction for uneven tooth edges.

Do you have chips or cracks in your teeth? If your teeth are otherwise healthy, veneers provide a flawless tooth surface. Are your teeth yellow or gray? Veneers can fix that, too. Veneers can be fabricated in any shade to perk up your smile while still blending naturally with your other teeth and skin tones.

Porcelain veneers are paper-thin, tooth-shaped covers that are affixed to the front of teeth. Traditional veneers required the removal of a thin layer of tooth structure.

Veneers are strong, natural looking, and one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures in Kingsland and Meadowlakes. Of course, a tooth with extensive damage may need a dental crown.

At Ritchie Dental Group, we would be happy to show you what veneers can do for you. Ritchie Dental Group is located at 1000 Marble Heights Dr in Marble Falls. We provide premium dental care for many of your friends and neighbors in the greater Horseshoe Bay area. Our phone number is 830-637-7227.
