Cosmetic Dental Treatments in Zachary, LA
Morris Family Dentistry offers many cosmetic dental treatments to fix any concerns you have with your smile as well as oral health:
Invisalign is a orthodontic treatment that patients can use instead of braces. It involves using clear aligners to straighten the smile over time. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, they offer discreet treatment. These aligners are also removable, allowing patients to eat what they love. This also means you can remove them every time you need to brush and floss your teeth.
Dental veneers are thin, porcelain ceramic shells that cover and protect the front of the tooth. Because they are porcelain, teeth veneers blend in with the color and shape of natural teeth. We can match them to the color of your other teeth for a consistent, brighter smile.
Dental bonding uses a resin material to cover areas of discoloration or damage. Patients with chips and cracks in their tooth enamel or single discolored teeth benefit from bonding. Your dentist can complete the treatment in a single visit. He will simply apply the material and sculpt it by hand onto the teeth. Then cure for a durable cosmetic restoration.
Our in office and take home professional teeth whitening treatments offer easy and affordable. We use Opalescence teeth whitening which provides quick treatment with immediate results. For patients who want a gradual treatment at home, we offer take home teeth whitening kits. We will custom prepare both the in office and take home teeth whitening treatments for each patient.

What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is just what it sounds like! Using a variety of cosmetic treatments, Dr. Morris can transform your smile. Dental veneers, tooth bonding, Invisalign, and teeth whitening are all options for patients if they have multiple cosmetic problems. Dr. Morris can also replace old veneers or fillings. If you have old metal fillings, Dr. Morris is able to safely replace them with white fillings. Traditional silver fillings often contain mercury, which is harmful to the body.

On average, in office teeth whitening treatment with Opalescence can last for six months. Patients can also touch up their whitening results with take home treatments. These easy to use whitening kits contain everything that patients need to protect their teeth and gums from sensitivity.
Which are better: porcelain veneers or dental bonding treatment?
Dental bonding and porcelain veneers offer similar treatments for damaged and discolored teeth. However, dental bonding is a material sculpted onto teeth, and porcelain veneers are thin shells bonded to the front of teeth. Porcelain veneers may cost more than dental bonding upfront, but they often last longer than bonding. Tooth bonding is a great option for patients with minor chips in the enamel and is more affordable than veneers.
