The bonding procedure is fast. It involves applying layers of tooth-colored composite resin to improve the look of damaged teeth. Using this resin, Dr. Erickson carefully sculpts your smile to compliment your facial structure and desired outcomes. He’ll polish your new smile to create a natural-looking, beautiful finish.
Dr. Erickson uses only the highest quality materials alongside his artistic ability to create your dream smile.
Veneers are thin layers of super-strong porcelain placed on top of your natural teeth to correct imperfections and provide a stunning smile.
Before starting the procedure, Dr. Erickson takes time to understand your ultimate goals and uses intra and extra-oral photos, digital x-rays, and impressions to create the ideal treatment plan. He will also create a “wax up” model to give you a preview of your final outcome.
Our Irving cosmetic dentist works alongside our partner dental lab to produce first-class restorations, including veneers. He’ll send your impressions and specifications to the lab who will create your new veneers.
Once your veneers are manufactured, Dr. Erickson will bond them to your teeth for a beautiful smile. You will then be free to show off your smile with renewed confidence.
Thanks to its discreet mechanism, you can achieve your dream smile without putting your social or professional life on hold.

Instead of using outdated metal fillings, Dr. Erickson uses tooth-colored composite materials that mimic your natural tooth’s appearance and blend nicely into your smile.
He does this by first removing all decay from the affected area. Next, he’ll bond your durable and long-lasting filling to your tooth’s surface using advanced techniques. Finally, your filling will be sculpted to seamlessly match the rest of your smile in as little as one visit!
Once finished, this restoration will protect your tooth and restore its natural function in a discreet and beautiful way.

Dr. Erickson and my hygienist, Leslie, are amazing! The entire team is. I have been going to this practice for many, many years and have nothing but rave reviews. They've adjusted well to COVID with their protective gear and cleaning practices and I felt very comfortable being in their office this week.
FAQs about Cosmetic Dentistry
- How can I safely whiten my teeth?
With so many whitening products being advertised on the market, you are right to ask about the best and safest method to whiten your teeth. Since every smile is unique, Dr. Erickson needs to evaluate your teeth before recommending a specific product. We offer whitening agents, as well as some cosmetic restorative options to achieve this goal. To find out which method is right for you, call us today at (972) 717-0077 for a complimentary cosmetic consultation.
- Is it possible for me to see what my smile will look like before committing to having the work done?
Dr. Erickson allows you to see a preview of your smile by doing a lab fabricated “mockup.” This gives you the ability to see the potential outcome prior to accepting treatment.
Once treatment starts, Dr. Erickson can then use this “mockup” to produce a set of temporaries so you can get a real sense of your potential outcome. Thanks to this method, Dr. Erickson can better understand your needs and goals to customize an appropriate treatment plan.

The costs of cosmetic dentistry procedures depend on your chosen treatment. Our team provides treatment costs up-front and outlines several different financing options available at our office. We’ll discuss your options together and chose the ideal solution for your needs and budget.
