A Confident Smile
A confident smile is important. A smile is much more than just straight, white teeth. When you feel confident in your smile, you feel confident in yourself and are prone to show off your smile frequently. The benefits of smiling and laughing are numerous.
According to an article from the University of West Alabama, “Research shows that those who consciously or subconsciously smile more live better and longer. Your body releases three hormones that make you feel good when you smile. They include dopamine, endorphins and serotonin. These signal to your body that you’re happy, and in turn, you feel happier.”
Can Dentistry Enhance My Smile?
Absolutely!! Dr. Skrobanek offers cosmetic and restorative dentistry options that can enhance your smile in a way that is naturally beautiful. Some of the cosmetic treatments he offers can:
- Fix chipped teeth: If you’re worried about your chipped teeth, dental bonding may be a great option for improving your smile. We use versatile and resilient tooth-colored composite materials that create a strong structure to feel like your original tooth.
- Recontouring and reshaping: Tooth recontouring or reshaping provides instant results for cracked, chipped, or sometimes crooked teeth. We can slightly alter the shape, length, or position of the teeth.
- Professional teeth whitening: One of the best and easiest things you can do for your smile is to reverse the signs of age, smoking, and even medications by brightening your smile with a professional teeth whitening procedure.
- Restore your smile with dental implant: Dental implants are permanently anchored into the gum to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. Gone are the days of dentures being the only option to fill the gap in your smile.
- Enhance your smile with porcelain veneers. Veneers can conceal a wide variety of issues – from cracked teeth, gaps, crooked teeth, discolored teeth, and short or misshapen teeth. Veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are custom-crafted to improve the appearance of your teeth.
Cosmetic Dentistry Options
Now, let’s dive into a little more information about the actual process of these treatment options. We’ve listed below a few of the natural-looking cosmetic dentistry procedures that Dr. Gary Skrobanek and his expert team at GPS Dental in San Antonio, TX offer:
Cosmetic Bonding is a process where Dr. Skrobanek attaches or “bonds” materials directly to your tooth in order to change the color and shape and used most often to repair chipped teeth. The natural tooth enamel is then fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that still feels like your original tooth.
Enamel Shaping (Contouring)
One of the few instant cosmetic dentistry treatments is tooth reshaping, or contouring. This procedure can correct chipped or cracked teeth, crooked teeth, even overlapping teeth during one appointment. Under certain circumstances, dental contouring can be a substitute for braces and is used to slightly alter the shape, length or position of your teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Brushing and flossing are everyday ways to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy. If you still feel like your smile is lacking some sparkle or is more yellow than it used to be, you’re not alone. We offer several in-office teeth whitening options, just ask Dr. Skrobanek which option is best for you. (Read more, Brighten Your Smile with Whitening Trays)
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth. A small amount of your existing tooth structure is removed to accommodate for the very thin, yet strong porcelain veneer.

Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury, periodontal disease, or some other reason. Dental implants are connected to the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Expert dentists, like Dr. Skrobanek, who specialize in implants have the training, experience, special knowledge, and technology to help you have teeth that look and feel just like your own after your implant is finished.
