Cosmetic Options for Confident Smiles

Let your smile shine bright with teeth whitening from Zoom Whitening. It's an affordable treatment to whiten your smile in one visit. The treatment also includes take-home whitening trays to ensure the best results. By combining in-house LED technology and at home treatment, patients will see their whitest smile in a week's time.

Resin bonding is another type of cosmetic solution for chipped, gapped, and stained teeth and fillings. The material is shaped and molded to your teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, whiter smile. Resin bonding can be completed in a single appointment.

Veneers are a wonderful option to improve your smile and it's great for those with slight imperfections such as teeth that are stained, chipped or have gaps. Veneers are custom-made thin shells that are attached to the front surface of your teeth to change their color, shape, size, or length.

Eat More of Your Favorite Foods with Dental Implants

For those with missing or decaying teeth, dental implants can improve your smile not only cosmetically but structurally as well. Implants provide a stable and durable base for restoration so you can start to enjoy all of your favorite foods again.

An implant-retained denture is a denture attached to implants inserted into the jaw. This is different from a regular denture which rests on the gums. Denture wearers often find their dentures can be held in place with dental implants for added comfort and stability. Some patients even experience improved speech a welcomed benefit for many. Implant-retained dentures may provide patients with more confidence. Another major benefit of implant-retained dentures is the ability to enjoy foods previously considered off limits.

NELA Dental is your home for this Teeth in a Day, dental implant services. In fact, it is one of the few dental practices offering this procedure in the state of Louisiana. Through the use of CAD (Computer Aided Design) and 3D printing, dental implants can be placed, and long-term temporary teeth can be printed and placed in one day. This process allows for more chewing ability and much less pain while healing.

Don't Let Fear Stand in your Way

Whether it's root canal therapy or a routine procedure like a cleaning, IV and oral sedation is an option. Often, sedation allows patients to have multiple procedures completed in one visit. Thus, cutting down cost and the number of visits to the dentist.

Intravenous sedation, or IV sedation, is delivered through a vein in your arm to make you drowsy. IV sedation is an anti-anxiety medication, and the level of sedation can be adjusted to suit your needs. You will most likely sleep throughout the entire procedure.

Oral sedation can be administered to patients who may have some anxieties about IV sedation to reduce their fear and make them more comfortable. There are a variety of single or incremental doses used to help medicate a patient during a dental procedure. These oral medications can help to reduce memory of the sights and smells of the dental office to avoid any discomfort. The sedation allows a more complicated procedure to finish faster and more comfortably for a patient.
