We offer a lot of aesthetic dentistry in Baton Rouge, LA, and we find that no two people’s mouths are alike. This means customizing treatments for each individual patient. You’ll begin with a consultation, where our restoration dentist will discuss your goals and your oral health. In order to restore your smile, your mouth first needs to be healthy, so a thorough examination of your teeth and gums is in order. We can treat any gum disease or tooth decay in our office, and then it’s on to the smile makeover. This treatment involves combining a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that improve the appearance of your teeth, creating a symmetrical smile that complements your lips, skin tone and even your facial structure. The cost and length of your treatment will depend on the extent of your smile’s cosmetic issues and the types of treatment you want to have. Once your smile makeover is complete, you’ll be amazed by a new, flawless smile! With proper at-home dental hygiene and professional checkups, you can enjoy a lasting, gorgeous smile and improved oral health.
Dental crowns cover and restore damaged teeth. While they accomplish some of the same goals as porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges surround your entire tooth, providing enhanced function and stability. Bridges are a series of crowns that replace one or more missing teeth in a row, attaching to the remaining teeth on either side of the bridge. This prevents shifting of your remaining teeth and restores a complete smile after tooth loss.
Porcelain veneers are a popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. They can be used to close gaps between teeth, make your smile more even and cover severe chips and stains. Veneers are thin shells that require minimal removal of tooth enamel. They cover the front surface of each tooth and are custom-made to match your teeth. Veneers can even make some crooked teeth appear straighter!
Stained or yellowed teeth can have a strong impact on your self-confidence. Professional teeth whitening in Baton Rouge, LA can brighten your teeth multiple shades in as little as an hour! At Pearl Dental Group, we use professional-grade bleaching agents that penetrate your teeth, removing both surface-level and deeper stains. Teeth whitening from our cosmetic dentists is personalized and monitored for safe, lasting results.
If your upper and lower teeth don’t fit together exactly, this is called malocclusion (or a bad bite). An occlusal adjustment removes minor interferences from your teeth that prevent them from fitting together properly. If left untreated, malocclusion can cause fractures, teeth grinding and wear on your enamel. An occlusal adjustment is a quick, non-invasive procedure that remedies these issues. It involves biting down on a piece of special paper so we can see how your teeth make contact. We can then smooth problem areas down just enough to remove the interference until the problem is corrected.
Orthodontics, or traditional braces, use wire and metal brackets to straighten crooked teeth and correct a misaligned bite. The wire strategically applies pressure to your teeth, slowly straightening them out. While orthodontic treatment is primarily used to correct functional issues, it can have a significant cosmetic impact on your teeth as well. Depending on your issue, you may wear braces for several months to a few years.
If you have mildly or moderately crooked teeth, Invisalign clear aligners may be your best treatment option. This process relies on clear plastic aligners that are nearly invisible. While the process of Invisalign treatment is similar to traditional braces, it eliminates the metal brackets and wires you may think of when you consider orthodontic treatment. You’ll wear the custom aligners for 22 hours a day, but you can remove them to eat and to clean your teeth. The aligners are replaced every two weeks and they slowly move your teeth into place. This makes one minor adjustment at a time, until your teeth are perfectly aligned.
