  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Restorative Dentistry in Lafayette, LA

Your teeth get put through a lot over the years, and the wear and tear adds up. Chips, cracks, and fractures cause your smile to lose its luster, and you may find that even the simple acts of eating fresh, healthy food and speaking become uncomfortable.

Advanced modern dental technology allows us to repair damaged teeth and replace missing teeth with dental prosthetics that look completely natural and function just like your own teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

While amalgam fillings are easily visible when you smile wide or laugh, composite fillings are designed to match the natural color of your teeth.

Patients often ask us about the safety of amalgam fillings and whether they should replace their current metal fillings with composite fillings. Multiple studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Public Health as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have demonstrated that the mercury in amalgam fillings does not pose a health risk. However, older amalgam fillings may leak or become loose. If you are concerned about the condition of your fillings, please give us a call.

Dental Crowns

Dentists have been using crowns for years to repair teeth that are severely damaged from either decay or trauma to the tooth. Not only are today’s crowns beautifully made and indistinguishable from your own teeth, they can also now replace missing teeth by being placed over a biocompatible titanium root. This procedure is called dental implant restoration, and if you are missing one or more teeth, you will be amazed by the results.

Crowns can also be used to hold a bridge or a partial denture in place when you are missing several teeth. This process costs less than using implants to replace all the missing teeth, but it still looks fantastic and helps to restore the functionality lost when your smile isn’t complete.

Dental Onlays

Onlays are also referred to as indirect fillings and are made of a tooth-colored composite material that bonds to your tooth and blends in.

Dental onlays allow us to conserve more healthy tooth structure than dental crowns and are durable and resilient to staining. Onlays are fabricated by a lab in the same way that crowns are and are perfectly customized to match the shape and color of your natural teeth. Once placed, they are virtually invisible.

Repairing and replacing damaged and broken teeth is an important part of your dental care. Without restorative dental care, your other teeth will be forced to compensate for those that are missing, which can lead to erosion, fractures, and more missing teeth. Call us today to schedule your appointment with skilled Acadiana dentists Dr. Smith or Dr. Domingue and find out what restorative dentistry can do for you to help improve your comfort and your quality of life.
