What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the art of revitalizing the appearance of teeth, gums, and other facial structures to help patients realize a beautiful, flawless smile. While some cosmetic dental treatments are purely aesthetic such as teeth whitening and veneers, others may also improve the function, such as crowns and orthodontics.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Treatments
If there is something you want to change about the appearance of your smile, Dr. Jacob Robichaux can discuss the treatment options that may be suitable for you. Cosmetic dentistry services can address teeth that are:
- Stained or discolored
- Chipped or cracked
- Short, worn, or misshapen
- Crowed or overlapping
- Spaced or missing
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Dr. Jacob Robichaux will create a personalized treatment plan customized for your individual needs and preferences. Before we begin our cosmetic dental procedures, we will ensure your mouth is free from any major oral health isuues and you are stable, as these can affect the success of the treatments.
Teeth whitening procedures can lighten teeth that have been stained or discolored by foods and beverages, smoking, or natural aging. The process involves using a bleaching solution that eliminates stains from inside the tooth, also know as intrinsic staining. This could brighten your natural tooth color by several shades.
Dental bonding can be an affordable alternative to a crown or veneers for repairing minor chips or cracks in teeth. They can also close minor spaces between the teeth.
Dental veneers can be fixed to the front surface of an impaired tooth to conceal its defects. This versatile treatment can correct various cosmetic concerns like hiding tooth discoloration, straightening misaligned teeth, and closing spaces.
- Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Invisalign treatment can be a perfect alternative to conventional metal braces for straightening misaligned teeth and other mild to moderate bite problems. The treatment utilizes removable clear plastic aligners, which are inconspicuous in their appearance, providing you with a discreet treatment.
Dental crowns can rectify aesthetic concerns, such as changing a tooth’s color, size, or shape. Bridges can replace missing teeth.
