What’s Better Than Braces? Braces & Cosmetic Dentistry!

After Dr. Bessonet and the team at our Geismar, LA dental office get your smile nice and straight with braces, it’s time to take a look at your other cosmetic dentistry options. Once your braces come off, you may be relieved your teeth are no longer crooked, but you may also start to notice other flaws that are keeping your smile from being perfect.

Your Teeth: Teething Whitening, Dental Veneers, Teeth Contouring, And Teeth Bonding

Straight teeth are not perfect teeth – there’s still work left to be done. Even once your teeth have been properly aligned you might notice certain teeth are longer or wider than others. This is where teeth contouring can help make your teeth more uniform in shape and size.

If your concern is more a tooth that is discolored or has uneven enamel, tooth bonding is the ideal solution for you. We can shape bits of resin to smooth out your tooth or make it appear the same color as the rest of your teeth.

If your smile is dull and dingy, brighten it with teeth whitening. A bold, white smile tells the world you’re confident. We can get you fast results with our in-office KöR teeth whitening system or you can gradually whiten your teeth with a KöR take-home kit. Either way, your smile will be noticeably whiter.

Really treat your teeth with dental veneers. We offer two types e.max and porcelain. Dental veneers mimic the glow of healthy, beautiful teeth and adhere to your natural teeth for a perfect looking smile.


Your Gums: Gum Reshaping And Gum Graft

Teeth aren’t the only factor in a radiant smile. Your gums need to be in shape too. If you’re self-conscious about the excessive amount of gums revealed when you smile, we can correct your gummy smile with gum reshaping. Gum reshaping is also an ideal treatment for anyone with an uneven gumline.

If gum recession is making your teeth look long, skinny, and unsightly, we can get your gums back where they belong with a gum graft procedure.


Your Face: BOTOX And Juvéderm

Turn back time with Dr. Bessonet. We offer BOTOX and Juvederm, so you can get anti-aging treatments from a doctor you already know and trust. BOTOX can help ease lines from smiling or frowning. And Juvéderm plumps the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines – even the ones around your lips.


Interested In Braces?

These are all great options after braces, but if you haven’t visited yet for braces, you should schedule your consultation today by calling us at 225.963.5548. We offer several different styles of braces:

  • We offer traditional metal wire and metal bracket braces. Our wire is made of nickel titanium, which has a memory, so it needs less adjustment than braces that have stainless steel wires.
  • PowerProx Six Month Braces are a short-term option that can get your straight in less than six months. They feature clear brackets and wires, so they’re more discreet than traditional metal braces.
  • Invisalign® braces use a series of clear trays called aligners to shift your teeth into position. Invisalign offers great flexibility because you can remove the trays when you need to like for special occasions, photos, or simply brushing and flossing your teeth.
  • Clear ceramic braces function similarly to traditional metal braces, but they blend in with your teeth and are less noticeable.

After your teeth are straight, to keep them from returning to their crooked state, we will discuss your options for retainers, spacers, and other preventive orthodontics.


“I Want It All”: Smile Makeover

To bundle together any of these cosmetic dentistry treatments, including braces, Dr. Bessonet can create a treatment plan for you for a total smile makeover. We do mock-ups of what your final smile will look like, so you have an idea of what’s possible for you.

Don’t go through life with a smile that doesn’t bring you joy. Call us at 225-963-5548 to schedule your consultation. Not sure what you want?
