A smile makeover can help you feel years younger and give you a whole new outlook on life. It can provide an inner confidence like you’ve never experienced before. And that’s what Dr. Ashley Price loves providing for her patients. She creates beautiful smile makeovers using a variety of services and treatments, so you can have the smile you’ve always wanted. She can do this because she has invested hundreds of hours in post-graduate continuing education courses. More importantly, she has the artistic temperament that sets qualified cosmetic dentists apart from their colleagues.
Dr. Price will begin by listening to your ideas and aspirations for your new smile. She will take pictures of your smile and discuss possible treatment options. If you want your smile to shine with teeth whitening, she offers three types of whitening treatments. If you have a cavity, she can fill it with a white composite filling, and no one will even know you have a filling.
Dr. Price also offers beautiful conventional porcelain veneers and Lumineers, a brand of ultra-thin veneers. If your teeth are not as straight as you would like them to be, Dr. Price is a premier provider of Invisalign invisible aligners. They can straighten your teeth in about half the time of traditional braces, and no one will even know you’re wearing them.
The American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, so there are no legal requirements to set up practice as one. However, the knowledge base of skills and techniques required to offer aesthetic dental services is far beyond what is taught in dental school. Most dentists enter the field because they really enjoy fixing things. Like good engineers, they can diagnose a problem and provide a solution, fill a cavity, provide a crown for a cracked tooth, etc.
It takes a substantial investment of time and money to pursue advanced training in cosmetic dentistry. And it takes a different kind of dentist to understand what will make a smile more beautiful. Dr. Price is that kind of dentist.
Since graduating from dental school, Dr. Price has been pursuing advanced training at an accelerated rate, so she can offer her patients the services and treatments they need and want. In fact, although the state of Louisiana requires dentists to receive 40 hours of continuing education every two years, Dr. Price earns 100.
