  • “ 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.”

Should I Whiten My Teeth?

Professional Teeth Whitening Lafayette LAThe appearance of your teeth is a deeply personal topic. Even common procedures like teeth whitening really come down to your personal preference. You may feel outside pressure because of images in the media or because of the latest trends, but it is important to do what feels right for you. Just because your teeth are stained does not necessarily mean they are unhealthy, though that is the perception.

Certainly, if the color of your teeth makes you feel self-conscious or embarrassed to smile, professional teeth whitening could benefit you by giving you added confidence. A consultation in our office can determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening and what to expect as a result.

Professional teeth whitening is more affordable and effective than ever. You can expect more dramatic, consistent, and comfortable results from using a custom whitening system created by your dentist than from using any of the over-the-counter products, which can be messy, wasteful, and difficult to use. Many of them also do not protect your gums while you whiten your teeth, leaving them sore and sensitive.

What if I have Dental Restorations?

Teeth whitening poses additional challenges for those patients with dental restorations, especially ones that are visible when you smile. If you have dental work on your front teeth, you will definitely want to consult your dentist prior to any dental whitening because your restorations will not whiten like your natural teeth.

What if I have Sensitive Teeth?

Just because you have sensitive teeth does not mean that you have to rule out teeth whitening completely. It just means that we may need to approach your whitening with a longer timeframe or that we provide you with a desensitizing treatment before and after you whiten.

Certain gels, fluoride treatments, and laser treatments all help with tooth sensitivity so even our patients who have highly sensitive teeth can enjoy a whiter, more beautiful smile.
