Get Houston’s Best Deal on Braces

Centra Dental’s braces deal has become known throughout the Houston area to be practically unbeatable. Our goal at our south Houston dental office is to provide Houstonians with the opportunity to purchase braces at an affordable price. We understand how expensive this often very necessary dental procedure can be.

Starting at just $1995, patients of every age can begin their journey to straight and beautiful teeth. With the use of dental insurance, patients can expect to pay very minimally out of pocket. This has been incredibly helpful for many of our patients who were under the impression that they could not afford braces for themselves or for their children.

WHY CENTRA DENTAL FOCUSES ON AFFORDABLE BRACES

Making braces affordable in Houston means that countless people can have the chance to have healthier and more beautiful teeth for the rest of their lives. By straightening their teeth, this can greatly reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease by ensuring that plaque buildup between and around teeth doesn’t happen. Of course, patients will need to continue to properly maintain their oral health through brushing twice per day, flossing daily, rinsing with mouthwash, and visiting the dentist every six months.

This being said, kids and adults alike who have been hesitant about smiling freely can now smile, laugh, and talk without hesitation or embarrassment.

Crooked, misaligned and gapped teeth have been known to create a deterrent for kids and adults to be as social as they want to be. When teeth are straightened through orthodontics, it positively impacts their self esteem. This encourages interaction with others and provides them with the confidence to take on leadership roles.

IMPACT YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER: GET BRACES

If you have crooked or gapped teeth, contact Centra Dental, the best dental office in southwest Houston. Our orthodontist will conduct a thorough exam of your teeth and ensure you receive the right braces for your teeth so that you can smile freely again. We look forward to providing you and your family with beautiful smiles.

Start 2018 with a New Pair of Braces

The new year is officially here and there is no better time than now to get a set of braces from Centra Dental. Our southwest Houston dental office has all the braces you and your family members would want and at an incredibly low price.

Affordable braces in Houston are hard to find, but Centra Dental has them. Our oral metal braces start at just $1995, making them very affordable. Braces are a huge part of culture today because everyone wants a straight and beautiful smile.

The dentists at our dental office work well with kids and adults alike. Getting early orthodontics for kids is a big step in the right direction for their dental health. Braces can help stave off so many oral problems. Here are just some of the ways braces can help your kids’ teeth remain healthy:

  • PLAQUE BUILDUP: The buildup of plaque is always a concern for anyone, especially when it can easily hide. Braces help move teeth closer together and in order, enabling them to keep food from collecting and plaque from building up. This helps fight against cavities and gum disease.
  • STRENGTHEN TEETH: Just like in anything, you are stronger when you stand together. When teeth are moved closer together, they become stronger. When teeth are gapped and stand alone, they aren’t nearly as strong.
  • EASY BRUSHING: Orthodontics were created to make teeth straight and aligned. When teeth are aligned, it becomes much easier to brush teeth thoroughly. This is because the bristles on toothbrushes are able to move in simple patterns, covering each tooth, rather than having to work around the divots and humps of misaligned teeth.

NEED TO START BRACES EARLY?

If you or your loved one needs braces, then contact our southwest Houston dental practice and schedule your orthodontics appointment. Our friendly dentists look forward to providing you and your family with straight, healthy, and beautiful smiles with affordable braces.

Dental Insurance: Your Own Personal Christmas Gift

Everyone would like to have money for Christmas. Your dental insurance is practically that. Since Christmas Day is only days away and the end of the year is less than two weeks away, now is the very best time to use your dental insurance.

Your dental benefits enable you to afford various dental procedures that you otherwise might not be able to afford. If you have 2017 dental benefits that haven’t been used this year, don’t let them go to waste. Schedule your dental appointment now before it is too late and your dental insurance renews on Jan. 1.

USE YOUR DENTAL INSURANCE BEFORE 2017 ENDS

Here are just some of the oral procedures your dental insurance can cover:

  • TEETH CLEANING: A dental cleaning is paramount when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy. Getting your teeth thoroughly cleaned every six months helps stave off hard to remove plaque. Plaque can eat away at the enamel of your teeth and create cavities.
  • DENTAL FILLINGS: If you have cavities already, then those need to be removed before they spread wider and deeper. Our southwest Houston dentists will remove the cavities and replace those areas with dental filling. This helps strengthen the tooth and ensures it remains healthy.
  • DENTAL SEALANTS: These are a great idea for kids (and adults too) because it helps ensure they don’t get cavities. Dental sealants cover molars and protect them from plaque. They typically last about two years and then need to be reapplied.
  • DENTAL CROWN: In the event you don’t have dental sealants and the cavity has done more damage than we’d hope, then dental crowns would be best for you. When tooth decay heavily impacts a tooth, the decay is removed, leaving only the healthy and vibrant part of the tooth. The remaining part of the tooth is then covered with a dental crown, which is made of porcelain or composite resin.

CHOOSE CENTRA DENTAL FOR YOUR END OF YEAR DENTAL NEEDS

For any and all of your dental needs this Christmas time, come to Centra Dental. Our southwest dental clinic is here to ensure you enjoy the rest of your year and the years to come, and that you get the most out of your dental benefits.

Oral Braces Are the Perfect Gift for Christmas

Christmas Day is only a couple weeks away. This means there isn’t a whole lot of time left to get your kids the best gift of the year: braces. Our dental office in southwest Houston offers top of the line braces at a very affordable price.

Our Houston dentists encourage early orthodontics. We know that having a beautiful and healthy smile will improve a person’s life in various ways. Here are just some of the ways a great smile for Christmas can help your child:

  • HEALTH: Straight teeth help ensure a healthy smile by keeping plaque and food particles within reach. When teeth are crooked or gapped, plaque buildup can easily hide between teeth, making it difficult to remove it. Not removing plaque can lead to cavities and gum disease.
  • CONFIDENCE: When a smile is straight, it makes it easier to smile. Kids need confidence when they go through the grades of school. Growing confidence will help ensure they become more active in school and could help with their grades and their ability to make friends.

A BEAUTIFUL SMILE FOR EVERY CHRISTMAS

At Centra Dental, we know how much braces can improve someone’s life. Braces aren’t just a great gift for this Christmas. Braces are the one gift that will keep giving every year. Braces beautify teeth for the lifetime of our patients, which means getting braces once will carry on throughout every Christmas. So when you purchase your child a set of braces this December, you are giving them a Christmas gift for a lifetime.

Before Christmas Day arrives, bring the family to our southwest Houston dental clinic and find out how braces can help. Our kids dentists and general dentists will conduct thorough evaluations of your kids’ and family members’ teeth to provide thorough diagnoses of their teeth. Braces typically take between 12 and 24 months to complete straightening teeth. Our dentists will inform you of approximately how long it will take.

We look forward to helping you and your family smile bright this Christmas holiday season.

It’s Time to Be Thankful for Your Smile

This is the time of year when we all sit around the table and tell each other what we are thankful for. With all the wonderful thoughts, they are sure to bring a smile to your face. But is your smile one of those things you are thankful for? At Centra Dental, we believe the smile should be something everyone is thankful for, which is why we are offering braces at such a low price.

Our southwest Houston dental clinic provides braces for as low as $1995, making it more than affordable to straighten your smile without creating a financial strain. This Thanksgiving Day, if you are not happy with your smile, take a moment to be thankful for Houston’s best annual deal on braces at Centra Dental. Our goal is to provide beautiful smiles for everyone throughout the year, and not just during the holiday season. But now is the best time to get braces because your dental insurance coverage will be renewed at the beginning of 2018.

WHY DENTAL INSURANCE CAN COVER BRACES

Using your dental insurance now for braces will help ensure you put your dental coverage in the right place. Braces can be covered by dental insurance depending on the severity of the case. The reason braces can be covered is because crooked, misaligned or heavily gapped teeth can actually be a hazard to a person’s health.

Think of Thanksgiving Dinner. If a person with heavily gapped or crooked teeth is eating turkey and dressing, food particles can easily become stuck in teeth. Or they can become hidden in hard to reach places. This makes it difficult to remove these particles from teeth. These food particles can create plaque buildup that will eat away at the teeth’s enamel. Once the enamel is eaten away, cavities begin to produce, which creates real oral problems. These cavities require dental fillings, but if they worsen, they can require dental crowns, tooth extractions or dental implants.

This is why it is much more efficient to get braces before the dental problems arise. We encourage all parents to bring their kids into our dental office in southwest Houston during this holiday season. Our kids dentists will examine your child’s teeth and their structure to see if braces are the best option. Straightening teeth sooner rather than later is the best way to ensure your child continues with great oral health.

COME GET YOUR BRACES TODAY

If you or your child is in need of braces, then contact Centra Dental today. Our southwest Houston dental clinic, located in the 5 Corners District, is ready to help you achieve your best smile and begin being thankful for a beautiful and healthy smile. Happy Thanksgiving!

Use Your Dental Insurance Before the Year Ends

The 2017 year is coming to an end and with that comes the end of your annual dental insurance coverage. Before December comes to a close, be sure to come to our southwest Houston dental office to get whatever oral needs you have met.

Our dentist clinic in the 5 Corner District accepts most dental insurance plans. This dental coverage is extremely helpful when dealing with oral procedures that could be costly. Depending on the type of coverage plan you have, you may have most of your dental procedure covered by insurance. Since this is the end of the year, we call this the “use it or lose it” time of year.

Here are just some of the dental procedures you can have covered by dental insurance:

  • DENTAL FILLINGS: One of the most common types of dental operations is providing dental fillings to protect teeth. These are necessary when a patient encounters cavities. The cavity is removed and replaced with a dental filling that is made of composite resin.
  • DENTAL CROWNS: If a tooth has suffered major tooth decay, then a dental filling will not suffice. This is when a dental crown will be necessary. Our dentist will remove the decayed areas, leaving only the healthy part of the tooth. Then a dental cap is custom-made and placed over the tooth. These dental crowns are made of either composite resin or porcelain, which are both very durable and have the same look and feel of a natural tooth.
  • BRACES: Depending on the severity of the case, braces can be covered by dental insurance. This is when the teeth are so crooked or misaligned that the teeth become a hazard to the patient’s health. Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth to see how severe the case for braces may be. From there, we will find out if the oral braces can be covered by insurance.

There are other dental procedures that can be covered with dental insurance, including root canals, dental implants, and tooth extractions. Contact Centra Dental in southwest Houston to schedule your dental appointment. We look forward to helping you end 2017 in healthy fashion.

Braces: The Best Treat for Your Kid This Halloween

The most frightening time of year (sort of) is coming up: Halloween. So there will be a lot of trick or treating going on. One of those treats should be braces. Of course, not in the bowl of candy being doled out, but for your kids at our awesome dental office in Bellaire.

Let the end of October be the time where your child received their best treat: a beautiful and healthy smile. This can easily happen with braces.

Braces at Centra Dental are very reasonably priced and are the strongest available. Our dentists are able to thoroughly analyze your child’s teeth and see exactly how long the braces will take to straighten their teeth. The average time is between 12 and 24 months, but it all depends on the extensiveness of the case.

KIDS BRACES AT CENTRA DENTAL

At our southwest Houston dental office, our dentistry staff understands the importance of having straight and aligned teeth. Having a straight smile ensures that food particles, like Halloween candy, have a hard time getting stuck in hard to reach places or between teeth. This helps fight against plaque buildup, which directly leads to cavities and gum disease (periodontal disease).

When parents choose to get their children braces, there always plenty of questions that need to be answered. Our dentists have heard and answered them all and are more than willing to provide all the information required. We want every patient to go into the procedure of receiving Houston braces with as much knowledge and understanding as possible.

So once the bag of candy has been filled to the top, come to Centra Dental to get the best treat of the year. This is one treat that will last much longer than chocolate and will also provide way more smiles. Contact our dental office in southwest Houston today. We look forward to providing your child with a straight and healthy smile.

Houston Braces Are a Big Thing! Come Get Yours

With nearly 2.5 million people in Houston, there are plenty of people who need braces. You may end up being one of them. If you suffer from misaligned, crooked, or gapped teeth, then you should consider receiving braces.

The braces at Centra Dental are designed specifically to adjust your teeth and make your smile as straight and beautiful as possible. Our southwest Houston dental office provides 3M traditional metal braces to our patients, which are the strongest types of braces available. These braces, along with being the strongest, enable the teeth to adjust much quicker.

Typically, braces take between 12 and 24 months to adjust teeth. Our Houston braces may take faster or longer, depending on the severity of the case. The dentists of Centra Dental will conduct thorough examinations of your teeth to assess the approximate time it will take for teeth to straighten.

WHAT TO DO AFTER APPLYING BRACES

Once you have your braces, you need to continue your daily oral hygiene routines of brushing and flossing (people often utilize bristle sticks). Rinsing is another best practice for keeping the teeth and mouth clean while wearing metal braces.

Your dentist will inform you of how often you should come in to have your braces tightened. The reason the braces need to be tightened is because the teeth begin to move into place. If they are not tightened, then the teeth will remain where they have moved, which defeats the purpose of having braces. Be sure to always go to these tightening appointments.

WHAT TO DO AFTER GETTING THE BRACES OFF

Once the braces come off, there is still some maintenance to conduct. We will provide you with a retainer, which must be worn consistently. If it is not worn, then the teeth will shift out of place, which will unstraighten your smile. Dental checkups will continue to see how the teeth are faring. Our dentist will inform you of how long you will need to wear your retainer.
