A smile is a beautiful thing. It is often noted as the first feature that we notice in others. First impressions can be everything, so showing off a healthy and beautiful smile is important. More importantly, a great smile can make you feel good about yourself. Knowing that you have a beautiful set of teeth to show the world can leave you feeling happier and more confident. When dental problems are keeping you from having the smile you deserve, you can count on our doctors to offer you the best in Shreveport cosmetic dentistry. We can even combine our cosmetic dentistry procedures to give our Shreveport patients complete smile makeovers! Read on to learn more about some of our most popular smile makeover procedures.
One of our most popular dental procedures in Shreveport, porcelain veneers are thin shells that adhere to the surface of your teeth. Veneers are custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can fix many dental problems. Veneers can improve the health and appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, cracked, misaligned or misshapen. Veneers are also able to resist staining so they help you maintain a healthy looking smile. Porcelain veneers are a great option because they are easy to care for and they can last up to ten years.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
Porcelain dental crowns are like caps that are made to fit over your existing tooth. Your tooth will be filed down to make room for the crown. Once a crown is in place, it covers the entire visible surface of the tooth. A dental crown procedure is generally used to fix teeth that are weak, chipped, cracked, or severely misshapen or discolored. The benefits of a dental crown are that it is a relatively inexpensive procedure and can last up to fifteen years.
Dental implants are made to replace your tooth roots. Implants are tiny titanium screws that are used to anchor dental crowns to your jawbone. Dental implants are the perfect solution for people missing one or several teeth due to tooth decay or injury. There are many benefits of dental implants; they look and feel just like your natural teeth, can be brushed and cleaned just like your own teeth, and they stay in place. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants do not slip or click and never need to be removed for cleaning. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Even with the best dental hygiene habits, out teeth can become discolored over time. Aging, erosion, and even the food and drink we consume can leave our teeth looking yellow or gray instead of the bright white that we would all prefer. Fortunately, tooth whitening is an easy, non-invasive procedure. We can either complete the procedure in the office or send you home with the materials you need and monitor the procedure. You will notice results after just one use. In all, our teeth whitening treatment can leave your teeth up to eight shades whiter.
