Cosmetic Dentistry Denham Springs, LA

A cosmetic dentist has the artistic eye and skills needed to transform your smile. Many of these dentists spend most of their time fixing issues that affect the way that their patients’ teeth look.

Thanks to innovations in dentistry, a cosmetic dentist can drastically improve the way that your smile looks, regardless of any dental issues that you have or have had in the past. It is simply a matter of performing the appropriate treatments.

Treatments that a cosmetic dentist might use to improve a patient's smile

Ready to have a smile worth being proud of? Here are treatments often used to improve the way that a person’s teeth look.

1. Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatments consist of applying chemicals, like hydrogen peroxide and hydrogen carbamide, on teeth in order to remove stains. These compounds can eliminate stains from the outer and inner layers of teeth. The treatment is effective on most types of stains, like those caused by foods, aging, and smoking.

Professional teeth whitening treatments are the fastest way to improve the color of teeth. A single treatment can improve the color of a person’s teeth by up to 10 shades.

2. Composite bonding

Composite bonding treatments involve applying composite resin to a damaged tooth. The treatment has restorative and cosmetic benefits. The resin used is a mixture of plastics and glass, and it is in a putty-like form when applied. It can be color-matched with the rest of a person’s teeth, so any repairs made are not detectable. Composite bonding can be used to fix a variety of aesthetic issues, like stains, broken teeth, chipped teeth, deformed teeth, and spaces between teeth.

3. Veneers

Veneers can be used to transform any smile. These restorations were first used to beautify the smiles of Hollywood stars. Veneers are now available to everyone and are one of the fastest ways to drastically improve the way that a person’s smile looks.

A veneer is a thin shell that goes over the front part of a tooth. It serves as a cover, hiding all the flaws on the tooth. Veneers are designed to look like real teeth, making it virtually impossible to tell when a tooth is covered with one.

Veneers are versatile restorations that can be used to fix a wide range of cosmetic issues, like crooked teeth, spaces between teeth, stains, short teeth, and deformed teeth. The process of getting veneers can be completed in as little as two weeks. It might require removing a thin portion of enamel so the person’s teeth do not appear abnormally large after being covered with veneers.
