Smile Language: Why A Nice Smile Matters

December 2, 2016

Filed under: Blog — tntadmin @ 12:41 pm

As a dentist with nearly 35 years of experience, Dr. Landry can tell you how important a nice smile can be to your quality of life. At our Marrero, LA dental office, we help our patients maintain a bright, healthy smile through cosmetic, restorative, and family dentistry.

Make sure your smile is success-worthy. To schedule your next dental appointment, call Lapalco Family Dental today at 504-264-6461. Let’s take a look at three ways a nice smile can give your life a boost!

#1 Dating

When you’re searching for your soulmate, a nice smile can give you the edge. 58% of men and 71% of women judge their date on their teeth. A nice smile makes you seem warm, open, and inviting. It’s also a good indicator of how well you look after your hygiene.

#2 Career

When you look great, you feel great. And a part of looking great is taking care of your smile. When you have a confident smile, you feel less nervous in scenarios like job interviews and networking events.

#3 Health

Poor oral health can make other health issues you might have worse or it can increase your risk of developing a problem with your health. The majority of systemic diseases affect your mouth, including:

  • Kidney disease
  • Leukemia
  • Oral cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes

Healthy teeth and gums really do have benefits beyond a nice smile. Taking great care of your smile can also help you avoid tooth loss, which can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and make it harder to chew.

Get A Great Smile At Lapalco Family Dental

So, how can you get your smile into shape? With a visit to Lapalco Family Dental to see Dr. Landry and his team of friendly dental professionals.

You want: To brighten a dull smile

We can: Take your smile several shades white with the Opalescence Boost Teeth Whitening System. For same-day results, we can whiten your teeth in office. For gradual, more thorough whitening over time, we can send you home with trays to wear while you sleep.

Under the guidance of Dr. Landy you will get reliable, safe results. Over-the-counter teeth whitening kits from the grocery store can fall short of your expectations or even be harsh enough to irritate your gums or leave your teeth feeling sensitive.

You want: Soften your fine lines and wrinkles

We can: Treat you with Juvéderm, Botox, or both. No need to track down a different doctor for more youthful skin. You can see the dentist you already know and trust for these popular cosmetic treatments.

You want: Correct your crooked teeth

We can: We offer two short-term braces options. ClearCorrect use a system of see-through aligners to shift your teeth into place. These clear aligners are removable, so they won’t interfere with doing the things you love.

For a straighter smile in six months or less, we offer Six Month Smiles®. The brackets and wire are designed to blend in with your teeth, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious while your teeth are being straightened.

You want: A totally flawless smile

We can: To conceal every imperfection in your smile we can apply porcelain dental veneers to the front of your teeth. Porcelain has the same glow as a natural healthy smile. Dental veneers can hide:

  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Discoloration and stains
  • Chips and cracks
  • Unsmooth enamel
  • Slight crookedness

Dental veneers are simple to care for. You’ll continue to brush your teeth every morning and every night and you’ll floss once a day.

You want: A fast, affordable fix for chips and cracks

We can: Use resin to give your tooth a new shape. Tooth bonding is quick and inexpensive. It’s not as durable as dental veneers, but it can definitely improve your smile.

You want: To replace a missing tooth

We can: Repair your smile with dental implants. Dental implants bond with your jawbone for a secure, long-lasting hold. We’ll restore your dental implant with replacement teeth. Some options are CEREC same-day crowns or dentures. Dental implants help rid dentures of many of their most common issues like irritating your gums, coming loose, and causing gagging.

If you’re not a good candidate for dental implants, we can replace your missing teeth with a dental bridge. A dental bridge supports your replacement teeth by anchoring them to your healthy, natural teeth.

Let us help you get the smile of your dreams, so you can have a more fulfilling reality. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Landry call us at 504-264-6461.
