What makes up a perfect smile? White teeth? Straight teeth? Teeth with pleasing proportions relative to one another? A stunning smile is more than the sum of its parts. At Gordon West DDS, Aesthetic & General Dentistry, we believe that your perfect smile also contains another element – your unique personality.
What is a smile makeover? Is is a combination of procedures that remedy any problems with your existing smile. First off, we look at the health of your teeth. If you have cavities, we take care of those first. Oral health is paramount.
Then, Dr. Gordon West becomes a cosmetic dental artist using all the state-of-the art treatments available. Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a multitude of tooth restoration treatments. On the least invasive end we have dental bonding and inlays/onlays. These can often be completed in just one visit. Porcelain veneers can remedy small imperfections such as chips. A veneer can also correct the shape of a tooth that is misaligned.
If you have teeth that are not structurally sound, you may need a dental crown. The crowns we provide at Gordon West DDS, Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Lafayette blend perfectly with your existing teeth. No “chiclet” effect where the crown sticks out like a sore thumb.
What if you have a tooth that is completely missing? Ask us about dental implants. This permanent tooth restoration is actually anchored into the jawbone, offering strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession. With a tooth implant, there is no need to damage the two adjacent teeth as is necessary for a dental bridge. There are a variety of dental braces available for our Lafayette patients who need orthodontic treatment. Ask us about Invisalign clear braces.
Perhaps your greatest need is to repair prior dental work performed elsewhere. We can remove old silver fillings and replace with natural tooth colored fillings and replace broken dental crowns.
The crowning touch? Tooth whitening.
