Woodmere Dental Clinic
Southern Dental Care is ready to set you up for a consultation if you’re looking for a Woodmere dental clinic. We are located just a short drive away in Marrero, and we provide patients with a range of restorative, cosmetic, and orthodontic treatments. Let us briefly explain some of our services in each field.
Whether you’ve had several teeth in a row knocked out or you have a tooth that’s chipped, our clinic will present you with the right option. Our dentist, Dr. Lacey Andreotta, can also perform teeth extraction beforehand. To ensure that there’s no noticeable difference in color between your natural teeth and artificial teeth, we’ll recommend teeth whitening beforehand. Regardless, taking care of your teeth is extremely important.
We restore chipped and broken teeth with dental crowns. These are caps that go over the tooth and are made out of porcelain, metal, ceramics or a combination of the three. Not only will they improve the appearance of a tooth, but they’ll also alter its size and shape (for those with small or crooked teeth) and make it more resilient.When you have a row of missing teeth, it’s important to fill the gap as soon as possible because the adjacent teeth will drift and cause your bite to change. We offer:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Removable partial dentures
- Tooth-colored fillings
The first two options are permanent, in the sense that they can only be surgically removed. A bridge is a device with false teeth flanked on both sides by dental crowns, which go over your adjacent teeth, while an implant refers to a base that’s either snapped onto your gums or screwed in; we’ll then insert the artificial teeth onto the base for a more secure fit.
Besides partial dentures, we offer full dentures. Every prosthetic device is custom-made for each patient’s mouth, and our practice is always available for yearly readjustments (to accommodate bone loss in your gums). As for our tooth-colored fillings, these are perfect for those who have decayed teeth but want to avoid the unnatural look of metal fillings.
The three cosmetic products and treatments that we get the most requests for are:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
You might be surprised by the last, but it’s true; we can provide you with BOTOX injections, which will temporarily block nerve signals to your facial muscles and, consequently, smooth out your forehead furrows, crow’s feet, frown lines, and other signs of aging. Medical benefits may include relief from muscle spasms, stiffness, and chronic migraines. We’ll check your medical history, though, to make sure you’re eligible.
Teeth whitening is a basic treatment, but there are two methods to choose from: you can have it done in our office or take home your own whitening kit. For safety’s sake, the bleach used in the whitening kit will be lower in acid content and will thus produce less immediate results than our in-office treatments. Also remember that whitening can only address extrinsic stains, i.e. stains caused by what you consume.
Veneers, on the other hand, are porcelain shells that we lay over teeth to treat both extrinsic and intrinsic staining.
At Southern Dental Care, we’re proud to offer Six Month Smiles, which are nearly invisible braces utilizing clear aligners and tooth-colored archwires. Getting these treatments is much safer than going with traditional metal braces, and because of its cutting-edge technology, you’ll literally see results in six months. During the consultation, we’ll determine if your insurance provider will be able to cover this.
