Help for Botched Cosmetic Dental Procedures in Houston
Are you the victim of a botched cosmetic dental procedure? More people are seeking the perfect smile than ever before. Unfortunately, these botched results don not always match the patient’s expectations. Many dentists claim to be trained in cosmetic dentistry to capitalize on this opportunity but lack the skill and training to correctly perform cosmetic dental aesthetics.. The result is a number of botched dental procedures leaving patients in pain, unhappy with their smile, or sometimes in even worse condition than before their procedure. Botched cosmetic dental procedures and poorly performed dental work take many forms. Examples most commonly in botched dentistry are:
- Discolored porcelain veneers, or veneers that have turned gray or yellow
- Bonding which has become unglued or discolored
- Cracked or chipped porcelain veneers
- Mismatched or loose porcelain veneers
- Improperly cleaned surgery sites resulting in infections
- Mismatched or improperly bounded crowns
- Failure to first, properly correct an uneven bite, resulting in continual breakage of cosmetic dentistry.
- Failure to resolve pain after restoring the mouth.

Fortunately there is help available. Dr. Barras can repair botched cosmetic dental procedures at his Houston office to give you the award-winning smile you want and deserve!
Are Botched Cosmetic Dental Procedures Common?
The prevalence of celebrity culture, advances in dental technology and techniques, and the number of dentists who advertise cosmetic dentistry all contribute to increased demand for cosmetic dental procedures. Unfortunately, many dentists who offer these procedures have no specialized training in cosmetic dentistry, leaving countless patients with unsatisfactory results.
- Many dentists are not aware of the wide range of options available for veneers, leaving patients with mismatched veneer coloring (graying or yellowing veneers, or veneers that don’t match the natural teeth).
- While some dentists are trying to capitalize on the demand for cosmetic dentistry, their use of inferior veneers can result in cracked, chipped, or veneers that debond – even after only light use.
- Some dentists put only minimal artistic effort into placing crowns or veneers, leaving the smile uneven or unbalanced.
- Not every dentist puts in the amount of time and effort necessary to ensure areas are properly cleaned before performing cosmetic dental procedures resulting in infections that affect the teeth, gums, and the overall appearance of cosmetic dental work.
