Beautiful Smile Makeovers Since 1985 – Austin Laser Dentist

Cosmetic Dentistry is like getting an in-depth full smile makeover

Is your smile not as attractive as it was in your 20’s? Or worse, has it never been what you desire? Austin Cosmetic dentistry offers many solutions to your concerns.



From one-hour Laser Whitening to esthetic Full-Smile Rejuvenation, the advanced services offered by Dr. Helen Ragsdale and associates will have you smiling with confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry encompasses much more than merely the six front teeth. A beautiful smile which complements one’s features, skin tone, and personality requires an in-depth, individual analysis by a highly-skilled, sensitive dentist who understands that each person has unique beauty.

Dr. Ragsdale has had hundreds of hours of continued training in nationally recognized, advanced cosmetic and rehabilitative care programs, along with hundreds of delighted makeover recipients, which assures the quality of the experience you deserve.

You will be involved at every stage of the smile rejuvenation process and in every treatment decision, so that there is a thorough, mutual understanding of your desired choices and outcome. Dr. Ragsdale and her expert-level team will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and respect your right to choose a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan. Open communication is essential to effectively meeting your cosmetic (or other) expectations. Most importantly, we will make sure you absolutely love your beautiful results because our success is measured by your satisfaction.

With cosmetic dentistry there is not a “smile formula” that works for everyone, Dr. Ragsdale takes great care to ensure her patients’ new smiles are both aesthetically pleasing and natural looking. She considers numerous elements, including: face shape and tooth shape, mid-face and lip symmetries, amount of gumline “show”, age and personality, lifestyle, and tooth color when creating one-of-a-kind, eye-catching smiles. If you find it difficult to imagine what the results may look like after cosmetic dental treatment, cosmetic imaging and modeling will give you a preview/glimpse of the smile that’s waiting for you just around the corner.

Before you even say a word, your smile speaks!

Is your smile not as attractive as it was in your 20’s? Maybe it has never been what you desire. If you have lived with what you perceive to be an imperfect smile, imagine how a cosmetic smile makeover will change your appearance, your confidence and your life!

The quality of your smile has more of a direct effect on your personal and business relationships than any other part of your appearance. Put your best foot forward with a great smile. A healthy, attractive smile will improve your confidence as well as enhance your personal and professional life.

Your smile significantly affects how people view you!

First impressions are vitally important

About 88% of all people in North America say they always remember someone with an especially attractive smile. In addition, 75% of people agree that an unattractive smile can seriously hurt a person’s chances for financial success. This is probably why more than half of the adults in America wish they could change their smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help you correct problems you have had since childhood like discolored, crooked or irregular-shaped teeth, or you may want to fix conditions you have developed over time like cracked, worn-down and stained teeth.

A beautiful smile can indicate health and happiness

Unfortunately, the majority of adults will experience some form of tooth decay, damage or staining and discoloration because of aging, lifestyle, genetics and/or poor oral hygiene. Cosmetic dentistry has made major advances, which allow almost any type of tooth dysfunction, decay or damage to be corrected. Many people choose cosmetic dentistry not only to look better, but also to ultimately have healthier teeth, gums and prevent further tooth damage and decay. Cosmetic dentistry can be your quick and easy alternative to living with cracked, discolored or unhealthy teeth and gums.

Cosmetic dentistry can make you look 10 years younger

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the fastest growing trends in healthcare today. Patients are now realizing that they no longer have to live with unsightly gaps, missing teeth, stained teeth or ugly silver mercury fillings.
From one-hour Laser Whitening to esthetic Full-Smile Rejuvenation, the advanced services offered by Dr. Helen Ragsdale and associates will have you smiling with confidence.
