What Are Your Available Treatments for Cosmetic Dental Care?

At Owens Family Dental, our team is happy to have the opportunity to provide you with the following cosmetic dentistry services:


Creating the Smile You’ve Always Wanted with Smile Design

While you may be taking preventive oral care measures necessary for a healthy mouth, sometimes, this may not be enough. Whether you’re not happy with your current smile, or you have experienced a recent accident or injury that has left your teeth and gums damaged, this can affect your confidence and overall quality of life.

Smile Design is our team’s process of designing and visualizing your new, complete, and ideal smile. Sometimes, this involves only correcting a few imperfections and other times; it can involve complete rehabilitation.

Whatever your need for Smile Design, this comprehensive procedure can completely restore your dental health and appearance regardless of the initial condition of your teeth, or current oral health.

When analyzing the many aspects of your smile, our dentists will consider the overall visibility of your smile, the shape, shade, and contours of your teeth, the visibility of your gums, as well as your lips, unique facial features, and skin tone.


Professional Teeth Whitening

A brighter, more vibrant smile is what most individuals want. Drinking dark beverages such as soda, coffee, and red wine as well as eating highly pigmented foods and using tobacco products often lead to the discoloration of teeth. Some medicines, regular wear and tear, and aging also lead to enamel staining.

Whether you choose to whiten your teeth for an upcoming social event, a major work interview or want to reverse years of staining, we can assist you with personalized teeth whitening treatments that yield amazing and successful results.

Comfortable Teeth Whitening in Our Office

Depending on the level of your discoloration, our chairside whitening with Opalescence® can be carried out within a single visit. Before activating the whitening solution, our dentist will apply a protective gel to your teeth.

This whitening method is perfect for patients who want quicker results. Usually, the procedure takes about an hour, and you're done!

Customized Take-Home Whitening Kits

Our Baton Rouge team offers the option of take-home whitening with KOR® for patients with busy or hectic schedules. This technique also utilizes professional grade whitening gel and custom trays. This option enables you to whiten your smile at home at your own speed.


What is Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment is an advanced clear aligner system backed by more than two decades of innovation. Invisalign clear aligners, unlike braces, are removable and nearly invisible. There are no wires and brackets, so you don't have to change your diet, lifestyle, or your way of brushing and flossing.

These aligners are specially designed for you, utilizing precise impressions to ensure the trays will apply the correct pressure in the right places. Through every step of the process, you’ll be monitored by our highly-knowledgeable team.

Are Clear Braces as Effective as Traditional, Metal Braces?

Yes! Invisalign works about the same ways as traditional, metal braces do; however, their main advantage is the fact that they are so clear, they’re practically invisible. Furthermore, it is important to note that Invisalign can be a very effective method for treating mild to moderate aesthetic, orthodontic issues.

Your aligners are intended to put soft pressure on specific area of your teeth to align them into more aesthetic and functional positions. Each aligner is intended to create only the smallest possible changes.

During treatment, your trays are changed about every two weeks to ensure the treatment progresses as planned.


What Can Veneers Do for Me?

Although thin, veneers are durable shells created from visually-appealing porcelain materials designed to cover the surfaces of teeth to improve the overall appearance. Veneers can change the color, shape, size, and length of your teeth.

Veneers can address a large variety of functional as well as aesthetic smile limitations, such as:

  • Severely stained teeth
  • Worn or weak teeth
  • Cracked and chipped teeth
  • Misaligned, uneven, or irregularly-shaped teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth

Will My Veneers Truly Look Natural?

Dental veneers, if done properly, can be quite beautiful and natural looking. Our dentists conduct a consultation with you regarding your desired shape, shape, and look of your veneers.

This appointment also involves a detailed examination of your current smile, so we can gain precise knowledge of what level of brightness, contours, and enamel translucency will best fit your needs.


Are Veneers Different from Crowns?

Yes. Veneers are thin, yet durable shells of porcelain which are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth, usually the most visible, creating ideal appeal and symmetry throughout your smile. Crowns will cap the remaining portion of your tooth, restoring function to your bite.


Repairing Damage and Renewing Smiles with Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays and Crowns

Tooth-colored inlays, onlays, and white fillings can be used cosmetically as well as to restore damage, function, and aesthetics. Depending on your specific situation, we work with you to select the best solution. We also take into consideration your aesthetic desires and budget.

In choosing between these therapy alternatives, here are some significant elements to consider.

Tooth-Colored Inlays

An inlay is a custom filling form. Porcelain inlays are common as they look like your natural tooth.

Tooth-Colored Onlays

An onlay is sometimes called a partial crown as well. Onlays can be used to repair teeth that have large fillings that are faulty or have been harmed by excessive decomposition or trauma.

White Fillings

We use enamel-colored fillings produced from high-quality, body-safe materials such as composite resin. Fillings are used to restore a decayed, damaged, or earlier filled tooth's natural appearance.

Crowns

Our crowns are also made of porcelain and are also designed to mimic teeth exactly, however, they’re used to protect a worn or weakened tooth by encompassing its entire structure and can be used on any tooth.

Why We Use CEREC Technology Crowns

Advanced decay or trauma may result in the loss of structural strength of your teeth, which can often warrant extraction. Not to mention, leading to discomfort and consistent pain.

Milled from a single block of porcelain, CEREC crowns strongly resemble natural teeth and can last for up to 15 years with proper care. High-quality porcelain can endure years of wear and tear to while preserving appearances without compromising function.

We use CEREC technology crowns to provide you with prompt and reliable treatment when you need it most. This has proven valuable in circumstances of treating dental emergencies. The CEREC technique also eliminates the need for faulty, temporary prosthetics, making it even easier for you to receive the care you need.

Same-day crowns also offer us more control when ensuring your prosthetic is made to mimic your exact smile and neighboring teeth, enhancing your complete satisfaction.

Providing CEREC Same-Day Crowns for Your Benefit

CEREC crowns provide numerous advantages, our top five often include:

  1. Eliminates the need for multiple visits to get your permanent crown.
  2. Only takes a single office visit
  3. No messy mold for impressions required
  4. No need for a temporary crown
  5. No need to wait the standard two-week period for your crown to be made

Dental Implants for Permanent Tooth Replacement

A dental implant is a titanium post surgically implanted under the gum line in the jaw bone. This titanium post will function as the tooth root that provides the replacement tooth with a powerful base.

Designed to imitate both a natural tooth's full structure and function, a dental implant provides structural, functional assistance while improving your smile's aesthetics.

These posts will not come loose or dislodge, and if correctly cared for along with frequent dental visits, they can last a lifetime.

Fixed Bridges for Replacing Several Missing Teeth

To replace one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge is used. An anchor on either side of the gap supports the bridgework to keep the false tooth in place.

Natural teeth or dental implants can support a bridge. Using the natural teeth to support the bridgework, a dental crown is positioned to provide extra assistance and stability.

Crowns for Single-Tooth Replacement

The most natural alternative to replace a single missing tooth is a dental implant. To replace a tooth that is congenitally missing or a tooth that has been lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease, or other reasons, a dental implant is often used.

Designed to imitate both a natural tooth's full structure and function, a dental implant provides structural, functional assistance while improving your smile's aesthetics.

Full & Partial Dentures for Renewing Multiple to Many Missing Teeth

Full dentures are life-like prosthetics used to replace a smile with little to almost no teeth remaining. Dentures can either rest on the gums, using natural suction and adhesives to stay in place, or can be supported by dental implants.

Partial Dentures are more similar to a dental bridge and replace several missing teeth.

In What Ways Can Cosmetic Dentists Help My Smile?
