Our Terrytown Dental Clinic
Southern Dental Care is the Marrero and Terrytown dental clinic you can trust for a wide range of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Lacey Andreotta and her staff are available five days a week to provide you and your entire family with quality dental care. Our products and services include:
- Teeth scaling and polishing
- Dental veneers, bridges, and crowns
- Dentures and partial dentures
Teeth cleanings are no problem for us. Let our caring dentist and her team remove the plaque from your teeth every six months or so. We can even perform deep cleanings that go below the gum line and remove tartar, bacteria, and other undesirable elements. We also perform X-rays and cavity checks as part of our preventative work.
The Cosmetic Side
Our team can perform teeth whitening, which will produce better, cleaner, and safer results than if you used an at-home treatment. If you want a more extensive treatment for improving the look of your teeth, ask about our veneers. A veneer is a layer of material (we’ll use porcelain) that is placed over each tooth and used to reflect light, making teeth whiter than ever. We can take on one tooth at a time or several during each appointment.
Crowns and bridges are essential aspects of cosmetic dentistry. Crowns are caps that can be placed over a tooth to restore its shape or appearance. We have three materials to choose from: porcelain, metal, and ceramic as well as various combinations of them. If you’re missing a tooth entirely, let us put a bridge, which is a false tooth covered with a crown, into the gap.
We know that crooked teeth are a common issue, and so we’re proud to offer Six Month Smiles as a safe, affordable alternative to metal braces and other orthodontic treatments. These are transparent braces with nearly invisible memory wires that will give you straight, beautiful results within six months.
You may have a more pressing problem, though: for example, decaying teeth. That’s where we can come in with our fillings. While we have the traditional composite fillings, made of silver and gold, we offer the option of tooth-colored fillings. Not only are these types free of mercury, but they will look natural even upon the closest observation. Fillings are mainly for the back molars and front incisors.
If you’re missing several teeth in a row, you can discuss your options with us in regard to partial dentures. We’ll make sure to create a product that fits your mouth. If, on the other hand, you want dentures for cosmetic reasons, our dentist will remove the teeth that you specify and then insert the dentures. The mouth will change its structure as it heals from the teeth removal, so our office will periodically readjust the dentures.
As mentioned above, we’re also familiar with endodontics. If the pulp of a tooth is infected, it’s time to get a root canal. We can also medicate the area where a tooth has been knocked out. Also, you can set up an appointment for an exam if you suspect a dental injury. We can check for issues with a filling like fractured cusps as well as cracks, splits, and root fractures. While our office can perform extractions, we think of it as a last resort and will always consider whether we can save a tooth through endodontic therapy.
Our dentist is also qualified to perform BOTOX® treatment, a minimally invasive procedure that can address wrinkles and even migraines. We’ll meet you and see if this treatment is appropriate for you.
