Choosing the Right Cosmetic Treatment for You
Are you happy with the look of your smile? Do you have cosmetic imperfections that you would like to address, but aren’t sure where to start?
More and more people today are learning that cosmetic dentistry is not just a solution reserved for the rich and famous. Now your Metairie cosmetic dentist has access to materials and techniques to produce a “Hollywood smile” even if you’re on a tight budget.
The most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure is teeth whitening. Stained teeth result from the foods you consume, tobacco use, or poor oral hygiene. Professional teeth whitening can quickly brighten your smile and take years off your appearance.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Your dentist uses a natural-looking tooth-colored composite material to correct the appearance of chipped, broken, or discolored teeth. The putty-like material is applied to your teeth and sculpted and contoured to produce the desired shape, size, or shade, then hardened with a curing light. The result is a restoration that blends seamlessly with your surrounding tooth structure to create a healthy, bright smile.
Your dentist bonds a thin shell of porcelain to your tooth’s surface to repair chipped or cracked teeth, conceal size discrepancies and gaps between teeth, and improve severe tooth discoloration or a worn appearance.
Invisalign Clear Braces
If your teeth are crooked or crowded, Invisalign is a comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. Smooth plastic aligners are designed to nudge your teeth into the desired position, and you don’t have to deal with metal brackets and wires attached to your teeth.
Nothing can impact your appearance like a missing tooth can. A dental implant is a tooth replacement that your dentist uses to address tooth loss. Not only do implants replace the lost tooth but they improve your overall appearance because they fill out your face to prevent the sagging that’s so common with tooth loss.
