We all deserve to feel great about our appearance as we go about our everyday lives, but this might not be possible if your smile isn’t reflecting what’s on the inside. Dental staining, gaps, chips, cracks, crooked teeth and other imperfections can mar otherwise healthy smiles, leading patients to hide their mouths when taking photographs or laughing with friends. Dr. Deborah Lesem offers several cosmetic services that can create stunning improvements for your smile! Contact our New Orleans, LA office today if you’d like to learn more, or if you’re ready to pursue a change.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin restorations that are designed to cover just the front surface of your teeth instead of the entire shape. This means that Dr. Lesem can use them to correct several dental problems all at once behind a new, flaw-free appearance, which could be ideal for patients who would like to simplify their cosmetic treatment as much as possible. In addition to being seamlessly lifelike, porcelain veneers are surprisingly durable as well, and they’re much more resistant against staining than your natural enamel.
Dr. Lesem understands how important your naturally beautiful smile is to you here in New Orleans. If you’re nervous about impending restorative care that could leave your appearance married by noticeable silver or gold, don’t be – our team is happy to offer metal-free restorations as an alternative choice that prioritizes aesthetic quality while still providing needed durability and function. These all-ceramic materials are seamlessly lifelike and even designed to have the same translucent qualities as your original tooth enamel. Their comfortable, biocompatible nature is also perfect for patients who have struggled with oversensitivity or outright allergies to common dental metals in the past.
Even the smallest dental imperfections can loom large in your smile whenever you look in the mirror – so why not have them fixed by a seasoned professional like Dr. Lesem? Direct bonding is a simple, cost-effective,and convenient service that only requires a single appointment and can create beautiful improvements. During the treatment, Dr. Lesem will apply tooth-colored composite resin to the affected tooth and carefully sculpt it so that it enhances you r smile while effectively covering the stain, crack, chip, gap, or other flaw before hardening it in place with a special curing light.
Direct bonded veneers are both beautiful and durable and are often a more affordable option to porcelain veneers. They are a great option for patients who want a Smile Makeover without a major financial investment.
Teeth can become stained and discolored over time for a number of reasons, including diet, oral hygiene, genetics, and even the use of certain medications. Dr. Lesem offers several choices for patients wanting to brighten their smiles. She will be happy to discuss the best options to suit your smile and budget.
