Discover the different ways you could change your smile in Fort Worth, TX:
- Porcelain Veneers
Enjoy the real benefits of a beautiful and natural-looking smile with porcelain veneers!
A veneer is a wafer-thin layer of super-strong porcelain placed over your natural teeth to help correct almost any smile flaw (e.g. gapped, cracked, stained or crooked teeth).
Dr. Ryan Schmidgall studied smile design, functional aesthetics, and occlusion (bite treatment) under the prestigious Dr. David Hornbrook of The Hornbrook Group.…Opens a new window to the official website… Today, with his exceptional skills and vast experience, Dr. Schmidgall works with some of the best ceramists in the country to craft beautiful yet natural smiles with porcelain veneers.
The process can be completed in just a few simple steps:
- First, a small amount of enamel (the thin outer covering of your tooth) will be removed to make room for the veneers.
- Then Dr. Schmidgall will take impressions and send them to our partner lab to manufacture your veneers.
- Once the veneers are back, they are bonded onto your teeth with a special material and dried with a UV light.
The outcome will be a beautiful, bright, aligned, and natural-looking smile!
In addition to wanting you to enjoy a beautiful smile, your Fort Worth dentist is committed to making your treatment discreet and non-invasive. He applies this approach when recommending our Invisalign® teeth aligning solution.
Just like common metal braces, Invisalign® works by gently moving your teeth into their proper position. However, there are a few BIG differences! We use clear, transparent aligners with no metal or brackets to be seen.
These modern aligners are custom-designed using our 3D CEREC computer imaging technology. This technology allows Dr. Schmidgall to obtain digital impressions and give you a preview of what your new smile would look like. The data is then sent off to Invisalign®, and the new SmartTrack® trays are delivered to our office.
Here are some additional benefits of Invisalign®:
- The aligners are not only invisible, but they are removable, which makes eating and maintaining oral hygiene much easier and more pleasant.
- Treatment times can be up to 50% faster with this technology. The whole process can take just 6-24 months, depending on your individual case and needs.
- Invisalign® is custom-made to gently and efficiently move your teeth into position.
- You are required to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day.
- Teeth Whitening

- The Zoom! Whitening gel is then applied and activated with the Zoom! LED light to penetrate your teeth and break up stains and discoloration

- Once we’ve reached your desired shade, we’ll apply a post-treatment gel to help protect your teeth and reduce sensitivity.

- Dental Bonding
Are your teeth chipped, fractured, misaligned, or discolored? Whatever your situation, as a cosmetic expert, Dr. Schmidgall can sculpt your smile back to its natural shape with dental bonding.
Dr. Schmidgall has extensive training in transitional bonding and combines this knowledge with a conservative approach.
Bonding is ideal for those wanting a beautiful result without any invasive preparation to their natural teeth. This cosmetic procedure involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to improve your damaged or misaligned smile. The resin is shaped to create an aesthetically-pleasing smile that fits with your facial features. The best part is it can be done in just one visit!

- Why Should I See A Cosmetic Dentist?
You should see a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Ryan Schmidgall if you’re not happy with how your smile looks. Flaws and imperfections like stained or chipped teeth can make you feel embarrassed when you smile, speak, or even eat around other people.
If you’ve found yourself hiding your smile, seeing a cosmetic dentist in Fort Worth is a fantastic way to transform your teeth and improve your appearance. With Dr. Schmidgall’s help, you can develop a cosmetic makeover plan that will fit your budget and your needs, and make you feel great about your smile once more.
- How Long Does Cosmetic Treatment Take?
This is entirely dependent on the types of cosmetic treatments you choose. Some are a lot faster than others. Teeth whitening, for example, can be done in just one appointment at our office, or you can choose to get a take-home whitening kit and brighten your smile over a few weeks.
Dental bonding is another good example. This procedure uses resin to rebuild and reshape your teeth, and it usually takes only about 30 minutes per tooth, so you can have multiple teeth treated in one appointment. On the other hand, getting dental veneers usually takes at least two appointments over a period of 4-6 weeks.
The time it takes to restore your smile should only be one of the factors you consider, though. At your cosmetic consultation at Country Day Dental, Dr. Schmidgall can build a treatment plan that fits your schedule, your budget, and your preferences.
- Which Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Is Right For Me?
If you’re just looking into cosmetic dentistry for the first time, teeth whitening is a great option. Whitening your teeth removes stains, makes you look younger, and boosts your confidence. It’s also very affordable and non-invasive. Teeth whitening also makes your smile more even and bright, which is a good thing if you’re interested in future cosmetic treatments.
Dental bonding is also a good option for some patients. It’s cheaper and faster than veneers, and doesn’t require the removal of any of your natural enamel. That means the process is reversible and less invasive, too.
If you have lots of cosmetic problems, though, veneers are probably your best choice. Dental veneers cover up the fronts of your teeth, restoring your smile completely. They can cover up chips, severe stains, gaps in your smile, and much more. For more information and to find out which treatment is right for you, we recommend scheduling a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Schmidgall.
- What Kinds Of Problems Can Cosmetic Dentistry Solve?
Cosmetic dentistry, as the name suggests, focuses on treating the cosmetic flaws affecting your smile. It’s used to treat stained teeth, minor chips and wear, uneven teeth, gapped teeth, and other such problems.
However, it’s not meant to treat serious oral health issues. If your mouth is not healthy, you aren’t a good candidate for cosmetic treatment. You will need restorative care to restore your oral health. After your teeth are healthy, you can get cosmetic treatment, and get the smile you’ve always dreamed about!
