Upgrade Your Appearance With Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments [BLOG]

A classic archetype in romantic comedies is a makeover at the end of the first act. Take away a young woman’s ponytail and glasses or a young man’s long hair and beard, and suddenly they’re dashing and attractive. While we don’t offer makeovers at Patrick Stuckey, D.D.S., we do offer something better: cosmetic dentistry treatments!

When you have your smile upgraded by our Ruston, LA dentist, you can get:

  • A more symmetrical appearance, which is generally more attractive
  • Structure to your cheeks, making you look younger
  • Fuller-looking lips with fewer wrinkles
  • A bright, white smile that draws people to you
  • Straight and even teeth that look natural, beautiful, and healthy

It may seem astonishing that we can do all this by working on what’s inside your mouth, but your smile is the first thing people notice about you. It should be your best feature! And you can make sure it is by calling Patrick Stuckey, D.D.S. at 318-255-8648.

Enhance Your Natural Teeth With Our Professional Dental Services

You can get a head-turning smile without adding anything to your natural teeth. There’s a few ways we can accomplish this.

Professional teeth whitening is a safe and reliable way to give your smile a boost. A bright smile makes you look healthier and more vibrant than a dull, stained one. And when you choose to have your teeth whitened by Patrick Stuckey, D.D.S. instead of a generic, one-size-fits-all drugstore kit, you’re choosing a higher quality product and an expertise you won’t get from the back of a box.

Tooth contouring involves removing enamel from your teeth in order to make them more uniform. It’s a quick and totally painless way to even out a bumpy or uneven tooth. It’s also helpful for correcting mild alignment problems and smoothing out chips.

Invisalign is a household name for a reason. These revolutionary aligners are made of a clear material that is able to straighten your teeth in a way that is:

  • Comfortable
  • Effective
  • Quick
  • Invisible

We’d think they were too good to be true if we weren’t creating these amazing results right in our office! It’s easy to see the aesthetic benefits of Invisalign – you’ll get straighter teeth without having a mouth full of metal. But that’s not the only advantage. You can also enjoy a cleaner smile than you could with traditional braces since you can remove your aligners for flossing and brushing. Of course, that also means you get to remove them to eat. With traditional braces you’d have to say goodbye to bagels and taffy for several years. With Invisalign, you can keep eating all your favorite food.

See Huge Results With Minor Changes To Your Smile

Instead of changing your original teeth, sometimes it helps to add material to give them some oomph. This is especially helpful if you have a number of surface flaws like discoloration, chips, or small cracks. Don’t assume you’re stuck with a smile you don’t love, even if your teeth have been discolored from antibiotics like tetracycline. There’s always an option!

Tooth bonding can correct chips, cracks, and even small gaps in your teeth. It takes only seconds but can last for several years. And in the hands of Dr. Stuckey, the results look exactly like your original teeth. No one but you and the doctor will know you’ve had work done!

Porcelain onlays are similar to crowns, but do not go all the way to your gumline. If you have a tooth that needs more than a traditional filling but doesn’t merit a crown, we might suggest one of these. They’ll only cover part of your tooth, so they’re a conservative alternative. Plus we’ll customize the shade to match the rest of your smile, so they’ll blend in well.

Dental veneers offer what we like to call a “smile reboot.” These wafer-thin shells are bonded to your natural teeth and repair just about any flaws you could have. At Patrick Stuckey, D.D.S., we exclusively offer veneers made from natural-looking e.max® ceramic. That’s because we believe you deserve only the best. They don’t just cover chips, cracks and stains – they’re also resistant to them!

Get A Smile That Looks And Feels Great

You can choose from several types of cosmetic dentistry treatments at our office because your mouth has a variety of needs. You’re unique, and so is your smile. You might just need your pearly whites to be more, well, pearly white. Or maybe you’d like to combine services to get a grin that brings out your inner Hollywood appeal.

Either way, we’re here to help you meet your smile goals. Call us today at 318-255-8648.
