Improving your appearance isn’t something that suddenly happens. You put a lot of thought into the changes you’d like to make.

If you want to fit back into your skinny jeans, you think about how you can change your diet and exercise routine to make that happen. When considering a new hair color and cut, you might scroll through Pinterest for ideas that you can show your stylist.

The point is, enhancing your appearance begins with a motivation for a change and plan to make those changes happen. The same is true for your smile.

What would it take to create the smile of your dreams? That can feel like a pretty intimidating question, but our team at Bayou Dental Group is here to help you tackle it!

Our award-winning smile creator, Dr. Finley, can help make your dream smile a reality. It all starts by taking a closer look at what makes you unhappy about your smile.

Identify Your Smile Problems

Think about what you’d like to fix about your teeth. Is it their color? Years of consuming dark food and drinks, smoking, or certain health conditions can all make your teeth look a bit dingy.

Perhaps you have gaps between your teeth that have bothered you for a long time. Maybe your teeth have been damaged from decay, infection, or even injury and you just never took that step toward repairing them.

When thinking about the flaws in your smile that make you feel self-conscious about showing your teeth, it’s important to be specific. Once you’re sure about what’s bothering you, you’re one step closer to finding the solution to those problems.

Consider Cosmetic And Restorative Smile Solutions

Now let’s try to match up some possible cosmetic or restorative solutions to the problems that stand in the way of your dream smile.

The Color Of Your Teeth

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments is professional teeth whitening. That’s because a whiter smile is such a simple but effective way to improve the appearance of your smile and boost your self-confidence.

In our Monroe, LA dental office, we know that your time is valuable. That’s why we offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatments so you can choose the method that best suits your schedule. With our Zoom! whitening system, you can dramatically whiten your smile to your desired level and at your own pace.

The Damage To Your Teeth

Unfortunately, one damaged tooth can ruin an entire smile. If you have a tooth that’s chipped or cracked, not only will it stand out, but it could put you at risk for more serious dental problems in the future.

That’s why even minor damage shouldn’t be ignored. A crack in your tooth could start small, but over time, it can grow larger and make you more susceptible to breaks or infection.

You can repair damaged teeth with porcelain onlays or dental crowns. Such restorative methods by our skilled professionals can repair and preserve your smile in a way that looks completely natural so that no one would ever notice you had work done in the first place.

If your teeth have been affected by decay or larger chips and cracks, then veneers may be a better solution. Even though veneers are made of incredibly thin porcelain, they’re actually very strong and durable. Veneers offer cosmetic and restorative benefits because they hide damage, look amazing, and protect your teeth for years to come!

Gaps And Misshapen Teeth

Just like a damaged or discolored tooth, gaps or an awkwardly shaped tooth can also draw unwanted attention. Again, veneers offer a great solution. By bonding a delicately thin veneer to your tooth enamel and shaping it to perfection, you can have a flawless smile that’s free of gaps and beautifully balanced.

The Empty Spaces In Your Smile

Without a doubt, missing one or more teeth is one of the most obvious problems in a person’s smile. You not only have to deal with the embarrassment of a toothless smile, but leaving those empty spaces can lead to more tooth loss in the future.
