teeth whitening in metairie

Yes! We currently offer custom take-home bleaching trays. Take-home teeth whitening allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home and whenever you want. We have found this type of bleaching works the best, and patients do not experience post-bleaching sensitivity. 

Teeth Whitening Process

First, we will take custom impressions of your top and bottom teeth, next trays specifically for your teeth will be made.  We will give you the bleaching gel that is will lighten your teeth.  This gel is then dispensed into the trays evenly, making sure that you don't use too much.  We recommend patients wear the trays 1 hour per day.  It typically takes about two weeks for optimal results, and touch-ups can be done as frequently as you wish.

dental bonding in metairie Dental Fillings in Metairie, LA

Dental bonding is the use of tooth-colored filling material for minor repairs or minor flaws in your teeth.  Dental bonding can be used to close minor spaces between teeth, fix chips, small cracks, gaps, or discoloration.  A benefit of bonding is the tooth (or teeth) being bonded do not have to be cut down, as they do with crowns and veneers.  Bonding and crowns are not interchangeable treatment options.  If a tooth is severely broken down or is a tooth that absorbs a lot of force, a crown is typically indicated.

Tooth wear starts when the outer layer of teeth, enamel, starts to wear down prematurely. Many factors including the way we chew, our diet and medical problems, such as acid refluxrestorative dentistry in metairie can cause teeth to wear. Clenching and grinding during sleep even cause tooth wear.

To prevent wear, we recommend regular removal of bacterial and acids from the mouth through brushing and mouth rinses. It is also a good idea to reduce the amount of acid in our diet, such as sodas. If you are clenching and grinding at night, a nightguard may be recommended. The treatment of tooth wear depends on the underlying cause of the wear so the first step is to diagnose the cause of the tooth wear. This may require visiting a physician for a physical.

Fixing Tooth Wear

There are many ways to build teeth back up to prevent wear or to at least slow the damage. We can build your teeth back up through the use of tooth-colored dental bonding. Bonding acts as part of your natural tooth and is completely unnoticeable.
