Your smile is one of the first things that people notice. If you’re smiling less and less because of crooked, gapped or discolored teeth, find a cosmetic dentist at Marrero, LA dentist Dr. Landry can help. Dr. Landry offers cosmetic dentistry in Marrero, LA and dental care procedures to transform even the dullest teeth into the smile of your dreams.
We provide what I call cosmetic orthodontics. We’re basically looking for people that they’re unhappy with the front of their smile. They chew adequately, they have no headaches, but they just have that one or two teeth in the front that they’re unhappy with.
What is cosmetic dentistry? We do several different cosmetic dentistry procedures. We can do clear-correct which is a type of clear aligner that you wear at night and that’ll help correct. We also do six month smiles and that’s where you wear brackets. Takes us about six to eight months typically to get everything straightened out. Less expensive than full orthodontics and much less time. You know sometimes in orthodontics you’re talking four to five years in braces. We’re talking six to eight months in braces. Wonderful results, everybody has been happy with it, can’t say enough about it.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to touch up your smile. Dr. Landry offers professional teeth whitening using custom whitening trays filled with peroxide gel. You can wear the trays at home and control how white you want your teeth to be.
Dental bonding is the application of tooth-colored resin to fix chips, fractures and small gaps. Bonding is a quick, simple, and very affordable procedure that is usually completed in one office visit. Bonding resin is not as durable as porcelain, however, so it is recommended for correcting minor surface imperfections.
If you are looking for a more permanent way to brighten your smile, porcelain veneers are the perfect option. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells cemented to the front of the tooth to hide major imperfections like severe discoloration, large fractures, and wide gaps between teeth. Veneers can be applied on one tooth or several teeth at the same time.
Lapalco Family Dental is one of the few dental practices in the area providing one day porcelain crowns using advanced CEREC technology. CEREC combines CAD/CAM with an in-house milling machine that carves crowns out of a porcelain block—all while you wait. You come to our office for your appointment and leave a few hours later with permanent crowns, veneers or bridges.
To correct teeth misalignment and related problems, Dr. Landry offers ClearCorrect invisible aligners and Six Month smiles short-term orthodontics. Straighten your teeth without anyone knowing and get your dream smile in as little as six months!
Why not have a face lift during your cosmetic dentistry appointment. Dr. Landry offers Botox and Juvederm to minimize the appearance of fine wrinkles.
I started out originally doing Botox because it was cheaper to do it on my staff than for them to go have it done someplace else. It’s turned out to be a wonderful thing for our patients, they’re trying to do everything they can to look good, but their face doesn’t keep up with the beauty of their smiles. So the Botox and the Juvederm fillers have been wonderful, they’re pretty much painless. If we’re doing Juvederm, I can actually give anesthesia so they don’t feel it.
I’ve always asked the question, who gives more injections? Dentists or physicians? I know mostly it’s the nurse when I go to the doctor and get a shot, but when you come to the dentist, we’re all about facial aesthetics and beauty, and we give injections all day. It’s a natural for us to be able to do Botox and Juvederm.
