Cosmetic dentistry is an art. You can get a promise of a smile makeover, but only an artistic cosmetic dentist can give you a beautiful smile design. But cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty, so any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist, regardless of whether or not he or she has artistic inclination, or has learned the techniques required to give you a beautiful smile. A cosmetic dentist that truly practices the art has artistic inclination and has received post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry.
Reasons to Have a Cosmetic Consultation with Dr. Delaune
Metairie cosmetic dentist Dr. Duane Delaune is an artist. He practices the art of smile designs. But, it’s not just a claim. Dr. Delaune is an accreditation candidate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. And he has received extensive post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry and has won awards for his work.
Some patients have come to Dr. Delaune after being disappointed with a smile makeover that they previously received from another dentist. They did not get the smile that they’ve always wanted—until they received a smile design from Dr. Delaune. An example is found in the pictures below. The patient was dissatisfied with her smile that was previously treated by a general dentist who used dental bonding in an attempt to hide tetracycline stains, but the stains can easily be seen. The dentist did not understand color and translucency. Dr. Delaune beautifully transformed this patient’s smile with porcelain veneers.
