The team at Dr. Lance Savoie Family Dental has many years of experience in providing many types of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments to patients across Abbeville, Louisiana.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
While our priority is to ensure that your teeth and gums are sound and healthy, we understand that people want a beautiful, complete smile too. Decaying, missing, and discolored teeth can cause low self-esteem and other issues. That’s where our cosmetic dentistry services come in. Our services help to restore discolored, damaged, and missing teeth.
Benefits of cosmetic dentistry
There are many advantages to cosmetic dentistry, including:
- The improved cosmetic appearance of teeth and gums
- Greater self-confidence from a better smile
- Better diet – many people with missing or loose teeth avoid certain foods
- Promotes better overall dental health
Services we provide
It’s easy for teeth to become discolored over time. Food, drink, smoking, and plaque build-up can all contribute to this, leaving you feeling self-conscious about your smile.
Our safe and effective whitening treatments can bring back that beautiful white smile. Once your teeth and gums have been thoroughly cleaned, the whitening procedure can be performed. Our dentists will also give you advice on how to maintain your smile at home through lifestyle changes and your dental routine.
Porcelain crowns and bridges
Crowns, also known as caps, are used when a large amount of the tooth structure has been damaged or lost. They cover the remaining part of the tooth. The crown can be made out of many different kinds of materials, but porcelain gives the most natural-looking feel and finishes to your smile.
A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The teeth on either side of the gap are crowned and the missing tooth is attached in the middle.
They are an excellent alternative to dentures if you do not want dentures. Bridges require strong teeth to be present on either side of the gap.
Veneers are a popular choice for those who have crooked, damaged, or discolored teeth, or have gaps. They are produced specially for each individual and are extremely realistic. The dentist will prepare each tooth and attach the veneer using a strong dental bond.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, or your teeth are failing, then implants can be a long term solution. A small titanium screw is placed in the jaw, to which a crown is attached.
The implants bond with your existing jaw bone, making them extremely strong. You can replace a single tooth or even all of your teeth with dentures that are attached to metal posts placed along the jawline.
With good dental hygiene, your implants should last for decades.
