What Are the Elements of a Smile Makeover
Have you been considering a smile makeover? Acadiana dentists Drs. Smith and Domingue have been transforming patients’ smiles for years with beautiful and natural-looking results.
Every smile makeover will be different. The procedures necessary to improve the appearance and function of your smile will depend on your individual needs. When you meet with Drs. Smith and Domingue at our Lafayette dental office, you’ll discuss your goals for your smile. Whether your problem is discomfort, misalignment, or missing or damaged teeth or your goals are primarily aesthetic in nature, we can combine treatments to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
Your smile makeover may include one or more of the following:
Dental veneers – These thin shells of porcelain are carefully shaped and fitted over the front of your teeth to conceal or camouflage a range of common cosmetic concerns.
Tooth-colored fillings – In addition to repairing cavities, the material used in tooth-colored fillings can also be used to repair structural damage, like chips, and cosmetic issues like short teeth or gaps between teeth.
Dental onlays – More conservative than crowns, an onlay fits over the top part of your tooth, which allows us to treat decay and other damage while preserving more of your natural tooth structure.
Ceramic crowns – Designed to fit over the entire tooth, a crown can protect a weakened tooth, repair a damaged tooth, or correct a discolored or oddly shaped tooth.
Dental implants – Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth, and we recommend them for anyone who is missing a tooth. Not only do they look and feel incredibly natural, they also help support your long-term dental health in ways that other tooth replacement options simply can’t.
Partial or complete dentures – When you are missing all or most of your teeth, we can discuss dentures, an affordable and reliable way to replace your teeth. Modern dentures look quite natural, and we can even create dentures that click into dental implants for added security.
