Your smile has an incredible effect on your everyday life. From greeting new people to sharing a laugh with your loved ones, confidently smiling is easier when you’ve achieved your smile goals.

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialization of dentistry that aims to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. Many cosmetic dentistry treatments also help support your natural tooth structures and remove bacteria for long-lasting results.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions:

Professional Teeth Whitening

Many of our favorite treats come with downsides for our teeth. Food and beverages like chocolate, wine, berries, and coffee all leave lasting stains that hide deep beneath your enamel, the hard outer layer of your tooth. But store-bought whitening treatments generally don’t have the whitening strength to remove these stains. 

Thankfully, you can penetrate your enamel and release the discoloration using professional teeth whitening from our cosmetic dentist in Pineville, LA. This advanced, LED-assisted procedure takes just a relaxed, one-hour appointment to restore brightness to your teeth. Following this sensitive treatment, you’ll leave our office with lasting results that you’ll love to share with friends and family.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that cover the surfaces of your teeth to change their shape, size, or color. This long-trusted cosmetic dentistry solution is ideal for rejuvenating your entire smile. We can even customize your veneers to blend seamlessly with your appearance. 

Veneers don’t just cover any cosmetic flaws — they also help support your natural tooth structures and prevent decay with the proper oral health care. The durable porcelain material can even last up to 10 years when you schedule preventive appointments at Locke Family Dentistry.

Porcelain Crowns

Several cosmetic procedures include porcelain dental crowns as a reliable restoration. These tooth caps are created to match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly into your smile. 

Veneers are an ideal solution for covering the effects of:

  • Dental trauma
  • Tooth decay
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Worn-down enamel
  • Discoloration and staining

Along with restoring damaged teeth, your crowns are also used to top dental implants or seal off a root canal. You can find out more about when we use custom crowns when you visit our Pineville, LA cosmetic dentist for your initial consultation.

Dental Bonding

It’s not hard to fix minor dental problems using tooth-colored dental bonding. This dental-grade solution is customizable to look just like your natural teeth. Plus, Dr. Locke applies your liquid solution directly to your teeth in a short, non-invasive procedure.

Our cosmetic dentist recommends dental bonding to:

  • Restore your teeth from decay
  • Repair damage to a tooth
  • Protect teeth from bacteria
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Extend the length of teeth
  • Brighten your enamel
