When you're asked to smile for a picture, do you find yourself trying to hide your teeth? Cosmetic flaws in the teeth - chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps - are very common, but fortunately, they're also very treatable. At Frost Family Dental in Metairie, LA, we have a variety of products and procedures to help improve the appearance of your teeth and give you something to smile about.
Although teeth are naturally an off-white shade, sometimes they develop stains that make them look yellow, brown or gray. When that happens, an in-office teeth whitening treatment from your dentist, Dr. Lawrence Frost, can make a huge difference in your smile. This is a quick, easy and affordable procedure that yields immediate results, which can last for well over a year before another treatment is needed.
Teeth cannot regenerate, so when accidents happen and a tooth sustains a crack or chip, it will need repair from your Metairie dentist. Depending on the nature of the breakage and the tooth it affects, you may need a simple bonding treatment to fill in a crack or a crown made to cover the entire tooth. Veneers, which are thin sections of porcelain that are affixed to the front of teeth, can also hide these types of problems.
Losing a tooth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Restorations like dentures, bridges and dental implants are designed to fill these gaps in and make them a thing of the past. The type of restoration you will need depends on your overall dental health, so consulting with Dr. Frost is vital.
Regardless of your cosmetic dental goals, Frost Family Dental can help you reach them. Contact us in Metairie, LA today to set up an appointment with Dr. Frost today!
