Your Canyon Lake, TX, dentist, Dr. Horacio Lucero of Mission Hill Dental, not only offers checkups and fillings, but also provides a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments. One or more of these treatments may be excellent options if you want to improve the appearance or function of your teeth.


Veneers offer a simple way to makeover your smile by concealing imperfections. These thin shells of porcelain look just like natural tooth enamel and are cemented to the fronts of teeth to hide chips, cracks, gaps, and discolorations, as well as whiten teeth or change their shape/length.

Cosmetic gum surgery

Do you dislike your gummy smile? During cosmetic gum surgery, your gum line is reshaped and recontoured to reveal more of your teeth.


Dental crowns enhance, repair, or protect teeth. Crowns look just like the top parts of your teeth and are created from an impression of your teeth taken in our Canyon Lake dental office. The hollow restorations slip over teeth that have been reduced in size, covering them on all four sides. Crowns can be made with porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic or resin.

Dental crowns can:

  • Repair and restore broken teeth
  • Prevent fragile or cracked teeth from breaking
  • Completely change the appearance of a crooked, twisted or discolored teeth

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening, one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, dramatically improves the appearance of your smile. In fact, after our professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to your teeth, your smile will be three to eight shades whiter than before! Whitening only takes about an hour in the dental office, and if you prefer, you can also whiten at home with trays provided by your dentist.
