  • “ 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.”

The Science of Smiles

Cosmetic Dentistry Lafayette LACharles Darwin observed that smiling is a universal expression, whereas other body language cues and gestures vary from culture to culture. Even smiling can vary from one culture to another. For example, people in the southern United States are more likely to smile than people in the northern United States. Eastern Asians often cover their mouths when they smile and British people tend to smile pursed instead of upward, keeping a stiff upper lip.

In fact, we often say “cheese” for a photograph because saying cheese forces your face into a sort of smile.

Smiling is an important part of social interaction. In fact, people who do not smile naturally struggle more in social situations.

Because you actually smile with your whole face, it is easy to tell when someone is faking a smile. In fact, fake smiles last longer than genuine smiles.

When you smile, what is yours saying? Are you embarrassed of the way your teeth or gums look? Did you know that if you are an adult with aesthetic conditions such as a gummy smile or misaligned teeth that treatment might not be as difficult as you think?

We can re-sculpt the shape of your gums with a soft-tissue laser to eliminate some of the excess tissue that gives your smile a gummy appearance. Then, we can place veneers or recommend orthodontics to give your teeth that natural, perfect appearance you were hoping for. At Drs. Smith and Domingue’s office, located in Lafayette, LA, we understand that looking great is as important as feeling great to our patients and we are here to help you determine the solutions that will give you the smile of your dreams. Some of the cosmetic services we offer include:

  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Tooth-colored fillings & bonding
  • Dental implant placement & restoration
  • Full smile makeovers

If you are looking for a way to feel more confident about your appearance, improving your smile is a way to take years off your face and boost your self-esteem.
