At Graceful Smiles Dentistry we provide comprehensive dental care for your entire family in a single location. Unlike most dental offices, our patients are able to complete most if not all of their care needs right here in our office.
Dr. Elsa offers a compassionate and gentle approach to dental care along with establishing personal relationships with each of her patients. By getting to know our patients better, we are able to provide more personalized oral health care for their varying needs.
Some of the services that we offer include:
Comprehensive Examinations in Waterside Community
All new patients receive a comprehensive patient exam that assesses their oral health care needs, tooth health, and bone structure. We also perform a health history screening to help understand what conditions may be linked to your dental needs.
Composite dental fillings not only look great, they also require less tooth preparation. We custom-match every composite filling so that it blends right in with your smile.
We believe that the best way to treat tooth decay is to prevent it from happening. Dental sealants are a perfect way to block out decay from forming in some of the most cavity prone areas of you or your child’s mouth.
Custom-fitted removable dentures and partial dentures are an excellent and economical way to replace your missing teeth. No matter how many teeth you need to have restored, our custom denture treatments can help you get your smile back.
Full coverage crowns restore the function of fractured or decayed teeth. We utilize porcelain materials to provide crowns that feel great and look natural. [Read more…]
Dental emergencies can happen when you least expect it. Wisdom teeth have a habit of causing problems as well. Our in-house extraction services and sedation options keep you comfortable from start to finish.
Root canals restore your teeth from the inside, out. They’re necessary when teeth have abscessed or been badly traumatized. Thankfully, our root canal treatments are just about as comfortable as having a filling completed.
Thousands of oral cancer cases are diagnosed each year. Unfortunately, most oral cancers are caught later on, when prognosis is poor. Dr. Elsa believes in early diagnosis and screening for a better treatment outlook for her patients.

The Waterside Community – SIX MONTH SMILES
A Straighter Smile…in Just Six Months!
Six Month Smiles is a limited orthodontic treatment that is designed for adults that want to have straighter smiles without wearing braces for one or two years. Dr. Elsa Mammen is a certified Six Month Smiles provider, and has the skills and expertise needed to treat even some of the most complex cases.
How Six Month Smiles Can Change Your Life
When you have a straighter smile, you feel more confident. You’re more likely to smile, laugh, or talk to other people because you’re no longer held back by the way your teeth look. In fact, people that smile more often are seen as more confident, more outgoing, and have more friends!
The foundation of a healthy smile is one that’s built on preventing problems before they start. At Graceful Smiles Dentistry we do just that. Our comprehensive dental hygiene and periodontal care services help prevent tooth loss caused by gum disease.
A strong, healthy mouth begins with one that is free of plaque and tartar. We’ll walk you through a customized oral hygiene play and provide preventive cleanings every 6 months to help you keep your mouth disease free.
Active gum disease can destroy the supporting gum tissue and bone around the teeth, causing tooth loss. Removing bacteria and tartar in these deep areas helps combat and reverse gum disease before it’s too late.
Recovering from gum disease doesn’t happen overnight. Some areas may require more attentive care to prevent recurrence of the disease or to even keep it at bay.
Our Periodontal Maintenance Program Helps You Keep Your Smile Longer
An effective periodontal maintenance program is one that will help patients recover from gum disease and prevent it from recurring. These patients require more than just a preventive cleaning; they need a detailed maintenance cleaning that targets areas of concern and monitors their attachment levels very carefully.
Our Sedation Dentistry Options Keep Dental Patients Comfortable
Are you searching for a dental office where you can actually look forward to your visits? Graceful Smiles Dentistry serves the southwest and greater Houston area and offers in-house dental sedation options to our patients. No matter what your dental experiences have been in the past, we’re sure you’ll feel relaxed when you’re in our care!
Dental sedation comes in different forms. Our patients can choose from:
Oral sedation uses a prescription strength sedative to help calm patients into a deep, relaxed state. Most people report that they feel as if they are dreaming or taking a light nap, and don’t remember a single thing about their appointment.
Also known as “laughing gas”, Graceful Smiles Dentistry patients can request nitrous oxide during any dental appointment. Whether it’s a cleaning or a root canal, nitrous oxide helps create an overall relaxed sensation and you can even go right back to school or work afterward.
