  • “ 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.”

Which Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure Is Right for Me?

Cosmetic Dentistry in Lafayette LA

That depends on what you would like to change about your smile!

Patients who are seeking cosmetic dentistry in Lafayette, LA trust Drs. Smith and Domingue with their smile transformations, and for good reason. Our doctors’ extensive experience and skill allows them to make changes that enhance your appearance, your confidence, and your self-esteem.

The first step is scheduling a cosmetic consultation with one of our dentists. We’ll discuss your goals and evaluate your current level of dental health and then provide our professional recommendation as to which treatment (or treatments!) will help you achieve those goals.

For instance…

If you are dealing with chips or fractures in your teeth, you may benefit from veneers, composite bonding, or, if the damage is extensive, crowns. Veneers cover the front of your teeth with thin porcelain shells that look incredibly natural. Bonding uses the same tooth-colored material we use to fill cavities to directly fill in and repair chips. Crowns are often used when the damage is affecting the tooth’s functionality.

If you’d like to brighten teeth that are discolored or stained, we can discuss professional teeth whitening, which is completely customized for your needs. Some types of stains are resistant to whitening treatments, and if this is true in your case, we can consider options like veneers.

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may wish to consider dental implants. An implant replaces your tooth with a lookalike that mimics the function of your natural tooth. An artificial root is surgically placed and then integrates with your bone structure. We restore the implant with a custom-made crown that blends in well among your existing dentistry. If implants are not the option for you, we can discuss a bridge or a partial denture.

If you are frustrated with the shape or size of your gums, we can discuss treatment with our soft-tissue laser. The soft-tissue laser allows us to precisely and efficiently remove excess tissue from the gumline to reduce a “gummy” smile and improve the contours. The soft-tissue laser is a huge improvement over manual surgical methods, significantly reducing your risk of both discomfort and bleeding.
