Making cosmetic changes to your smile isn’t something you just jump right into head first.
It’s actually the second step to getting the beautiful smile you want.
The first is making sure your teeth and gums are healthy, free of any decay, cavities, or gum disease so our team at Bayou Dental Group can get you closer to your dream smile!
How To Get Ready For Cosmetic Dentistry!
Here are a few ways we can help you get ready for cosmetic dentistry in Monroe, LA!
*Before You Whiten Your Teeth*
When applied too often or incorrectly, teeth whitening treatment can damage tooth enamel or irritate your gums.
That’s why teeth whitening should always be done at the hands of the professionals!
Our skilled dentists will first make sure your mouth is healthy before recommending teeth whitening treatment.
Whitening gels could be problematic if your gums are already inflamed or irritated, or if your teeth are highly sensitive because of an underlying dental problem.
We’ll guide you toward the best treatment for you so that in the end, your mouth is strong and healthy, and your smile is whiter and brighter!
*Before You Hide Your Teeth Flaws*
Any time we hide dental flaws, either with tooth bonding or veneers, we would risk serious future complications if we didn’t first make sure you didn’t have any cavities or signs of tooth decay.
We talk about these cosmetic dentistry services all the time in our blog, so you know that they can be a way to seal problems out, but they can also seal problems in.
Thanks to our highly-trained dentists, years of experience, and early detection methods, we absolutely do not proceed until any decay and cavities are thoroughly and effectively treated.
Once that’s over, it’s time to start planning your cosmetic treatment based on the smile goals you want to achieve!
*Before You Reshape Your Gums*
A gummy smile, one where your gums overwhelm your teeth and throw your overall smile out of balance, can easily and painlessly be corrected in our Monroe, LA dental office.
We use an advanced dental laser to gently remove any excess tissue, moving your gumline up so your teeth stand out like they should.
But before we can do that, your gums need to be free of any inflammation or infection. An examination will let us know if laser gum therapy is needed first, and once that’s resolved, we can move on to give you a beautifully balanced smile!
