If you find your toenails discolored and unsightly because of fungus or an ingrown toenail, you may be embarrassed enough to lock them away in closed-toed shoes – even during periods of sweltering Texas heat. Several common conditions afflict people and ruin their nails, making them thick, brittle, and deformed. You don’t have to hide your toes away, however. Dallas Podiatry Works offers multiple solutions to eliminate the problem and restore your toenails to their original shine. Call today for 5-star-rated toenail fungus and ingrown toenail treatment in Dallas, TX.
While many ingrown toenails can be treated at home or resolve themselves, there are cases of ingrown toenails that start out as a seemingly small issue and end up becoming a more serious problem. Oftentimes, this happens in conjunction with diabetes, as an ingrown toenail may go unnoticed for too long and cause an infection. At Dallas Podiatry Works, we urge you to come in at the first signs of an ingrown toenail, for ingrown toenail treatment in Dallas, TX. Though this condition seems like no big deal, we want to make sure that you get the best treatment possible to prevent complications.
The Dallas foot specialists at Dallas Podiatry Works are nail restoration specialists. We work with you to diagnose the cause of your nail changes and to offer the best solutions for quick healing. A frequent source for discoloration and thickening is a fungal infection. Microscopic organisms get under your nails, where they cause damage and are hard to eliminate.
Trauma can also sometimes kill all or part of a toenail, leaving it likely to fall off. Occasionally, the changes will result from psoriasis or a bone spur under the nail. By testing material scraped from the affected areas, our experts are able to determine the specific culprit and most effective treatment. If your toenail issue is caused by an infection, our expert staff can then put you on topical and oral medications to eradicate the source. While topical and oral medications can be successful in treating fungal toenail infections, their efficacy can be limited. That is why Dallas Podiatry Works uses and recommends the Q Clear™ Laser to eliminate toenail fungus.

Once the toenail infection has been eliminated, a new, healthy nail is able to grow in. You should see the nail being replaced after just a month or two, and a completely healthy nail should appear in anywhere from 6-12 months. In the meantime, though, you don’t want to have to keep your toenails out of sight. Dallas Podiatry Works offers a cosmetic nail treatment called KeryFlex™ Nail Restoration to get your feet ready for showing off. This is a painless procedure that gives you a flexible and natural-looking artificial nail while your own nails regrow underneath.
First, our expert podiatry team debrides the affected toenails and brushes the KeryFlex™ Bond on the leftover nail plate and bed. Then they apply a resin to build up and sculpt the artificial nail to match your natural shape and tone. Finally, they seal it and set the treatment with ultraviolet light. This artificial nail last up to eight weeks and can even be painted.
You don’t have to be self-conscious about your toenails. They are not meant to be brittle, broken, or discolored. If some or all of your nails have changed and become unsightly, don’t just sigh and settle and hide your feet. You can discover the source of your problems and eliminate it, making the way for new, healthier nails. You can restore freedom to your feet while they heal with our special cosmetic restoration treatments.
