With outstanding cosmetic dentistry solutions such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening at his practice near Lafayette, New Iberia, Abbeville and Franklin, Dr. Adrian Simm can create a stunning smile makeover for any patient. Dr. Simm and his team know that a beautiful smile can enhance patients’ confidence and improve their social life and career opportunities. Patients who have teeth that are yellowed, cracked, or chipped have been shown to be less outgoing and less sure of themselves than people who have an attractive smile. If you are tired of having teeth that are damaged, crooked, or stained, Dr. Simm can help you. Contact our cosmetic dentistry center to learn more about how he can use porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or a number of other techniques to create the gorgeous smile you deserve.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are placed over the front surface of a patient’s teeth to improve the appearance of chips, cracks, discoloration, or other imperfections. While a number of materials have been used to create veneers, porcelain is the most natural looking and durable. Dr. Simm is proud to provide all-porcelain veneers for his Lafayette, Abbeville and Franklin-area patients. For patients who have healthy teeth but simply wish to refine the appearance of their smiles, porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative to dental crowns, as they allow Dr. Simm to preserve more healthy tooth structure.
The porcelain veneers process is completed with two visits to our practice near Abbeville, Franklin and Lafayette. During the first visit, Dr. Simm gently removes a small amount of the surface of the teeth to be treated. Then he makes an impression of the teeth, which is sent to our top-quality dental laboratory. At the laboratory, the patient’s porcelain veneers are crafted to complement his or her natural teeth perfectly. When the porcelain veneers are ready, the patient returns to our office in the Lafayette area to have the new veneers gently fitted over his or her teeth. When the veneers are bonded in place, the patient’s smile makeover is complete.
For patients who wish to correct the appearance of misaligned teeth, Dr. Simm can use porcelain veneers as "instant orthodontics." Our patients are always thrilled with the exceptional results provided by porcelain veneers. If you are ready to refresh your smile with the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques such as porcelain veneers, please contact Dr. Simm’s practice, proudly serving Lafayette, Abbeville, Franklin, and surrounding communities.
Teeth that are yellow, dingy, or stained can detract from the beauty of even the healthiest smile. Tooth discoloration can be the result of aging, illness, or the consumption of tobacco, coffee, dark sodas, and other staining agents. Regardless of the cause of discoloration, Dr. Adrian Simm can provide effective teeth whitening for his patients from Lafayette, New Iberia, Abbeville, Franklin and throughout the state.
Dr. Simm and his team offer teeth whitening with the Ultradent® system. Our patients in Lafayette and surrounding areas such as Abbeville, Franklin and New Iberia love the Ultradent® system for its convenience and stunning results. The additional appeal of this system is that whitening gels come in three delicious flavors: mint, melon, and peach. The convenience of the teeth whitening experience with the Ultradent® system is enhanced because patients are not required to use a tray made from a mold of the teeth. Rather, patients take home pre-filled trays and wear them for 30 to 60 minutes a day for five to ten days. The gel contained in the trays safely and effectively whitens the teeth, and it helps to prevent future decay and strengthen tooth enamel.
With the Ultradent® teeth whitening system, our Lafayette, New Iberia, Abbeville and Franklin–area patients can enjoy fast, convenient, and effective whitening in the comfort of their own home. If you are interested in protecting your teeth while refreshing the appearance of your smile with the Ultradent® teeth whitening system, contact our practice for more information.
Dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, and bridges made from metals are not natural looking, and they often cause sensitivity to temperature changes and significant discomfort. Furthermore, mercury-containing amalgam fillings pose potential health risks for patients. Dr. Simm and his team are proud to use dental restorations that are made from either high-quality porcelain or a resin composite material. Tooth-colored restorations can be tinted to match the exact shade of patients' teeth, so our patients’ smiles always look natural and healthy after treatment. Furthermore, we use only the most durable materials to craft our restorations, so our patients can be assured that they will have a healthy, gorgeous smile for years to come. If you are ready to replace your old metal fillings, crown, or bridge with natural-looking restorations, please contact our office today for a consultation with Dr. Adrian Simm.
Dental bonding is a simple way to correct minor cosmetic imperfections such as cracks, discoloration, and surface irregularities on our patients’ teeth. Bonding can also be used to re-shape teeth that are too small, and even to correct the appearance of misaligned teeth. A dental bonding procedure requires only minimal tooth preparation before the tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth or teeth. For our patients who need only minor cosmetic enhancement, bonding is a painless and very conservative solution. In some cases, Dr. Simm can even use cosmetic bonding instead of porcelain veneers to refresh the smiles of our patients from Lafayette, Abbeville, Franklin, and surrounding areas. To learn more about the possibilities of enhancing your smile with dental bonding, please contact our practice.
