Cosmetic Dentistry in Temple

Your smile is often the first thing others see upon meeting you. A radiant smile can make the right first impression, but chipped, cracked, or stained teeth can significantly impact your confidence.

Fortunately, there is a myriad of cosmetic dentistry options that can give you the beautiful teeth you deserve. At Fairbanks Dental Association, our team of compassionate oral healthcare professionals create beautiful smiles for our patients living in Temple and surrounding Communities. Give our practice a call today and find out how we can make your smile shine!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth, like our skin, are porous and capable of absorbing the substances they come into contact with. This means that over time, your normal eating and drinking habits can noticeably discolor your teeth. Coffee, tea, red wine, dark berries, and other things we consume are all capable of leaving unsightly stains in our teeth that can’t be brushed away.

Fairbanks Dental Association uses GLO™ whitening products for patients who wish to brighten their smile. We offer both in-office and at-home whitening kits to meet the needs of every patient.


Veneers are a great, largely non-invasive way to enhance nearly any smile. These thin ceramic shells are cemented onto the surface of visible teeth for an aesthetic boost. Whether your teeth are discolored, chipped, or even too small or slightly misaligned, veneers can create the appearance of a brilliant smile.

Christopher Fairbanks, DMD, uses Lumineers, a no-prep brand of ceramic veneers. Usually, before placing a veneer, the tooth must be prepared by removing some of the tooth’s surface to ensure a good fit.

Lumineers, however, are some of the thinnest veneers available, require very little reduction of the tooth, if a reduction is needed at all. Furthermore, the strength of Lumineers means that they can easily handle normal day-to-day wear and tear and still last for 20+ years.


About half of all people develop some degree of malocclusion throughout their lives. Not only can this impact confidence, but a misaligned bite can cause discomfort and make daily cleaning more difficult.

For patients with mild to moderate malocclusion, Dr. Fairbanks recommends Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign is a nearly imperceptible alternative to traditional orthodontics that is perfect for adults and working professionals who may not want metal braces.

These clear aligners gradually shift your dental structure back into alignment and can be conveniently taken out for meals and cleaning.

Fairbanks Dental Association enhances smiles in Temple, as well as the surrounding communities of Belton, Academy, Harker Heights, and Troy.
