Get the smile you’ve always wanted with a beautiful smile makeover from Metairie cosmetic dentist and accreditation candidate, Dr. Duane Delaune. A smile makeover is a positive change to your teeth and smile that is customized to fit your appearance, personality and what you want people to see when you smile.
Why Choose a Cosmetic Dentist for Your Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover should not be a one-size-fits-all treatment. It should be customized for you. Of course you want your teeth to be functional, but it’s likely that you also want them to be beautiful and natural looking, so that you can smile confidently. That requires a dentist who practices the art of cosmetic dentistry, and most general dentists are not artistically inclined.
A cosmetic dentist will consider what you want in a smile. Do you want a smile that has variations in the length of your teeth and looks youthful? Does a sophisticated smile that conveys maturity appeal to you? Or, perhaps your preference is smile that conveys casualness.
Dr. Delaune is more than a dentist. He is an artist with an emphasis on smile design. And he’s shown it by going beyond dental school with ongoing post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Delaune is an accreditation candidate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He knows the techniques, and he has the desire and the artistic inclination to design a beautiful smile for you that you’ll love. See an example in the pictures below.
Options for Your Smile Makeover
If you’re happy with the shape and position of your teeth, teeth whitening can make your smile more noticeable. Whether you want your smile to look naturally whiter or dramatically whiter, Dr. Delaune has a treatment to match your preference. He provides at-home teeth whitening products for whiter teeth in about two weeks, or in-office treatment that will give you a brilliantly whiter smile in as little as an hour!
If you have teeth that are broken or chipped, or a small gap that you want closed, dental bonding can beautify your smile. Dr. Delaune has the artistic eye and training to ensure that your dental bonding perfectly blends with the color and translucency of your natural teeth. Dental bonding is less expensive than porcelain veneers, but it is not the best treatment for all smile makeovers. Dr. Delaune will determine if it is right for you.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Your smile design with porcelain veneers is customized to fit your preferences in a smile makeover. Porcelain veneers create a beautiful smile for a variety of problems with teeth, including teeth that are chipped, worn or have spaces between them. Dr. Delaune will determine if porcelain veneers are right for you, which brand is best for your case and how to place the veneers so that they look natural and beautiful.
