If you are not happy with your smile, we invite you to examine a complete smile transformation.

1. Look and feel younger.
2. Improve your oral health.
3. Increase your confidence.
4. Smile all the time!

Hello, I am Dr. Stewart. Welcome to my dental blog. I serve my patients at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS which is located at 13220 Huebner Rd in San Antonio, Texas. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 1981.

There has never been a better time to practice dentistry because dental procedures unavailable just a few years ago are now commonplace. During my career, I have become proficient in a wide variety of advanced dental treatments aided by breakthroughs in techniques and tooth restoration materials. My passion is providing the highest standard of dental care for my San Antonio area patients and creating the healthiest and most beautiful smiles possible.

If you are not familiar with the latest state-of-the art dental procedures, you might not realize what cosmetic and restorative dentistry can achieve. A total smile makeover involves a combination of cosmetic dental procedures which may include dental crowns, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, tooth implants, inlays and onlays, gum contouring, teeth whitening and, in some cases, orthodontia.

If you have dental anxiety, we can help. Sleep dentistry, sometimes called conscious sedation, will calm your nerves and help you relax while you undergo your smile redesign.

If you are in the San Antonio Shavano Park, Leon Springs, or Beorne area and have cosmetic dentistry questions, schedule a consultation by calling us at 210-428-6535.

What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgery Perfect smiles created at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening surgery at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS to alter their gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our San Antonio patients can’t believe how it changes their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth.

Sometimes, a patient needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps San Antonio dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Shavano Park cosmetic dentist has a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.

If you are seeking a dental smile makeover and live in the San Antonio area, schedule a smile consultation by calling 210-428-6535. We are conveniently located at 13220 Huebner Rd in San Antonio. When you come in, we can show you photos of Texas cosmetic dentistry patients who are enjoying their dazzling smiles that were created with the help of the skilled smile artists at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS.

what are dental implants

A mouth full of unattractive teeth can really distract from a beautiful person’s appearance. Having a red-carpet-worthy smile can bring you increased satisfaction and confidence in your social interactions with your distinguished A-list friends.

This smile, however, doesn’t have to have a celebrity price tag. Five-star yet affordable cosmetic dentistry and VIP treatment has been available since 1981 at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS. Come see what our expertise and experience can offer. When you ask about the cost of veneers in San Antonio, Texas 78230, don’t forget to ask about the cost of dental implants as well.

What are dental veneers? Veneers are paper-thin shells of durable material (ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin) bonded to the teeth to provide strength and add beauty to any smile.

What are dental implants? A wonderful long-term solution for missing teeth, dental implants are artificial roots surgically implanted in the jaw to anchor a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

The best way to find out if veneers or dental implants are a possibility is to meet with William Stewart DDS at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS for a smile makeover consultation.

We can create a smile you will be proud to flash at all of your public appearances throughout Hollywood or on location in San Antonio, Beorne, or Shavano Park.

Dental Miracles Seen And Unseen At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS

white fillings San Antonio

Quality dental care and cosmetic dental procudures can be extremely visible. Think porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and teeth whitening. Today, however, let’s talk about some purposefully unseen procedures that can contribute to a healthy, sensational smile. Today’s post will highlight three industry-leading cosmetic dental treatments: white fillings, invisible braces, and dental implants.

White Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings, white fillings, or invisible fillings are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color. These are fabricated out of strong composite resins and porcelains. If you would like to get rid of the silver amalgam fillings in your teeth, white fillings are the answer. You can’t go back and eliminate those cavities, but you can make the silver disappear.

Invisible Braces
Orthodontia has become less visible with the availability of invisible braces. Custom invisible braces are worn either over teeth or behind the teeth. Invisible braces are effective and convenient. Though they are not always the best tooth-straightening option, they have helped many dental patients align their teeth for a dramatic improvement in their smile.

Dental Implants
Sure, the crown of a tooth implant is clearly visible. But the critical part – the component that makes them so much stronger than a dental bridge – is anchored into your jawbone. A titanium post secures your restoration to offer the look, feel, and strength of a natural tooth. If you are missing one or more teeth, look at dental implants.

At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS we are passionate about creating appealing smiles for our valued Texas dental patients. We provide a full menu of general, preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments including complete smile makeovers.

Some of our most popular treatments at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS include sedation dentistry, dental crowns, and root canals. Contact William J. Stewart Jr. DDS today at 210-428-6535 to schedule an informative consultation.

Can I Objectively Evaluate My Smile?

esthetic smile design Shavano Park

It is no secret that a beautiful, pleasing, healthy smile can be your most revered physical attribute. After all, people notice your smile first thing. How do you know if your smile is detracting from your appearance?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; if you look at your smile in the mirror and believe it is unattractive, it doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks. But what if you are not sure?

There are many issues that are generally considered to detract from celebrity-caliber smiles. Missing teeth is a biggie. People who are missing teeth in the back of the mouth may mistakenly believe that the gap doesn’t show. They are usually wrong. When smiling, talking, laughing, or eating, a missing tooth definitely shows – even if the missing tooth is the very last molar.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile – even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned – and crooked teeth are generally considered unattractive.

There are a few unique smile characteristics that some people proudly show off and others wish to change. For instance, a gap between the two front teeth can become your trademark. True Blood star Anna Paquin, actor Woody Harrelson, and singer Seal have retained their spaces. Perhaps the most famous gap-toothed smile belongs to seventy year-old model Lauren Hutton who has proudly flashed it throughout her fifty-year career. Other celebrities such as Zac Efron, Tom Cruise, and Keith Urban weren’t happy with gaps so they transformed their smiles with revolutionary cosmetic dentistry.

If you want an objective aesthetic evaluation of your smile, how can you do this? You can’t see your smile from every angle when you look in the mirror. If you want an expert opinion on the attractiveness of your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist. There are a surprising number of design principals that are used in smile transformations. These include size, shape, alignment, proportion, color, and translucency. Moreover, cosmetic dentists also consider the characteristics of the gums, lips, and facial features.

When you have a cosmetic dental consultation, you will be able to see how the essential elements work together to create a natural-looking, standout smile. Bottom line? If you want to change your smile, you can! Schedule a consultation today by calling 210-428-6535.

 

Wear A Crown In San Antonio

Wear A Crown In San Antonio

Some San Antonio residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.

Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Your San Antonio area dentist will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.

Some dentists, including Dr. William J. Stewart of San Antonio, can create porcelain crowns in a single day with CEREC one-day crowns. Patients love having fewer visits and getting their perfect smile sooner with this breakthrough technology.

Dental crowns have been used successfully in San Antonio cosmetic dentistry for decades.

Many Shavano Park, Leon Springs, and Beorne dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.

If you think a dental crown may be right for you, check with your San Antonio dentist. Or, if you are searching for quality dental care in the San Antonio area, call us here at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS. We are located in San Antonio and have been serving the greater San Antonio area since 1981. We are currently accepting new patients at our state-of-the art, yet warm and comfortable dental office.

Call us at 210-428-6535 and our patient-centered and detail oriented staff can answer any questions you have about teeth whitening, veneers, enamel shaping, or any other cosmetic dental, general oral health, or dental financing questions.

 

6 Ways To Improve Your Smile

dental payment plans Shavano Park

Who would say no to a prettier smile? I am guessing no one, and now with all of the amazing cosmetic dentistry procedures available from San Antonio, Leon Springs, and Beorne cosmetic dentists, most dental patients can get the smile they want. Here is a quick look at some of the most popular treatments.

1. Teeth whitening is the most common procedure and it is used to lighten discolored teeth. This quick and easy procedure is usually done in the dentist office, and the results can be surprisingly dramatic.

2. Bonding is a popular treatment that uses a dental composite that resembles enamel. This material is applied to the surface of the teeth, sculpted into the desired shape, and then hardened and polished.

3. Tooth reshaping is a simple way to improve the appearance of teeth. It involves removing part of the enamel and can be used to fix small chips or to change the length or position of teeth.

4. Veneers are custom-made porcelain coverings that are very thin. They are bonded to the teeth and can be used to close gaps or cover discolored teeth.

5. For most San Antonio, Leon Springs, and Shavano Park patients, dental implants are the best way to fix a missing tooth.

6. And finally, there is the complete smile makeover. A smile makeover uses a combination of the available treatments to get Shavano Park dental patients the smiles they want.

Hi. I’m Dr. William Stewart, a local San Antonio dentist, and I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. I also want them to look their best. My practice, William J. Stewart Jr. DDS, offers the following services:
