Cosmetic DentistryCreating the Most Beautiful Smiles in Baton Rouge

Every person’s smile is unique. One of the ways we boost our patients’ appearance and self confidence is by providing a wide-range of cosmetic dental services. You may benefit from correcting the appearance of one or two teeth, or you may want an entire smile makeover. Whatever your needs are, we have the answers for you!

Some of the most common reasons our patients ask Dr. Platt or Dr. Kidder about cosmetic dental services are:

  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Teeth that are shorter or smaller than normal
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crowded or crooked teeth

Correcting the appearance of your teeth can be done through one or a combination of several different cosmetic services:

Porcelain Veneers

What if you could design a straight, white smile, perfectly from scratch? That’s exactly what porcelain veneers can do. The strong material is custom-shaded and shaped to give you beautiful, straight, white teeth. Porcelain veneers provide the most dramatic smile makeover possible. They are placed directly over the front of your natural tooth.


Minimal-Prep Veneers

Minimal-prep veneers are sometimes necessary over no-prep veneers to avoid them being too bulky or unattractive. This allows your smile to look natural, while also changing the irregularities that you’re concerned about. We customize the shape and size of your veneers so that you can get the look you’re wanting.

No-Prep Veneers

No-prep veneers are bonded directly to your un-prepped tooth surface, making them the most conservative type of veneer. They allow us to vastly improve the size and shape of your teeth while preserving your natural tooth structure. Their translucent appearance gives you a natural look, while still being able to correct the size and shape of your teeth.

Full-Mouth Restoration

Rebuilding your smile is a big job. Knowing which teeth need to be replaced or restored requires a detailed treatment plan that also meets the expectations of our patients. Both Dr. Platt and Dr. Kidder are committed to customized, full-mouth restoration treatments that are designed around your goals. Most of our patients implement several different phases of restorations like porcelain crowns, composite fillings, implants, whitening, or gum recontouring.

Gum Recontouring/Tooth Recontouring

There are many reasons behind why your teeth or your gums may be uneven or have a displeasing appearance. We work with you to diagnose the underlying issue. Recontouring of the teeth and/or the gums can improve the appearance – sometimes very quickly!

Composite Bonding

Tooth-colored bonding is perfect for correcting small discrepancies like chipped teeth or gaps between the teeth. The material is what we use in white fillings, and it bonds directly to your tooth. Every restoration is color-matched, so that it looks as if it was a natural part of your tooth.



In-Office Whitening

Have you ever wanted to whiten your smile in just a single trip to the dental office? You can! Our Boost in-office whitening treatment can remove years of stains off of your teeth, in just a one-hour dental treatment.

Take-Home Whitening

Professional home whitening kits are more effective and safer to use than any over the counter products. Our take-home kits consist of a custom-fitted whitening tray and professional grade Opalescence whitening gel. In less than 2 weeks, you can have teeth that are several shades whiter.
