Cosmetic Dentistry in Metairie, LA

Cosmetic Dentistry in Metairie, LA

Many cosmetic dental procedures are available to improve your smile's appearance. Methods such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, composite bonding, and smile makeovers can improve the aesthetics of your teeth and boost your confidence. At Raul Ramirez DDS, we perform these procedures to help patients feel better about their teeth and give them the confidence to smile more.

Even with good oral hygiene, your teeth can still have cosmetic flaws. Common issues include discoloration, gaps between teeth, broken or chipped teeth, and crooked teeth. Although these issues may not severely impact your ability to eat, speak, or smile, they can make you self-conscious about your smile. With cosmetic dentistry, we can improve the appearance of your smile and help make you feel confident to show it off to everyone you meet.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Many patients choose to improve their smiles with cosmetic dentistry because they’re unhappy with the current color of their teeth or the shape of their smile. Other common reasons people seek cosmetic dentistry include teeth that are chipped, gapped, cracked, broken, and/or crooked. Proper treatment from a cosmetic dentist can improve and correct these conditions to create a picture-perfect smile! We will review your treatment options during your examination to determine the best procedure.

In addition to improving your smile’s appearance, cosmetic dental treatments can improve your oral health by correcting damage to your teeth caused by decay, trauma, or even genetics. When we correct teeth issues like misalignment, gaps, cracks, and chips, we can also help to protect your teeth from future damage and help you avoid the later need for more extensive treatments.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Veneers

The shape of your teeth can affect your smile just as much as the size. If your teeth have small chips, cracks, or other minor imperfections that affect their appearance, your dentist can place ceramic veneers over the fronts of the teeth to hide these flaws. Veneers are custom-made to fit over each tooth and correct its specific size, shape, and color.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Speaking of chips, our team also provides tooth-colored fillings, also called composite resin. These fillings are colored to match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly into your smile. They can also be used to repair cavities.

Dental Implants

If you have missing or damaged teeth that need to be extracted, we can replace them with the next best thing for your natural teeth—dental implants. These titanium posts will act as the new roots of your teeth that can support restorations like crowns, bridges, or even dentures to help rebuild your smile.
