Modern Technology Meets Traditional Patient Care
In our Lafayette dental office, we embrace modern and advanced dental techniques and technologies while at the same time honoring our commitment to providing compassionate, patient-centered care. We take the time to review your treatment plan with you and discuss your options thoroughly.

A Full Range of Dental Services in Lafayette
Your oral health has a direct impact on the health of the rest of your body, and we practice dentistry with this relationship in mind. Whether it’s preventive dentistry or general oral care, we take a comprehensive and customized approach to your unique needs.
Preventive and general dentistry includes everything you need to keep your smile intact and your teeth healthy.
These preventive measures include:
- Regular exams identify periodontal disease, small cavities, alignment issues, suspicious lesions, and erosion.
- Regular teeth cleanings clear away the harmful bacteria that your toothbrush and dental floss leave behind.
- Periodic x-rays that are safe and high-definition help our dentists head off potential dental issues like underlying infections, alignment issues, or other specific problems that can compromise your long-term oral health.
General dentistry picks up where preventive dentistry leaves off and includes everything you need to maintain your teeth and gums.
This may include general fillings, root canals, extractions, natural-looking restorations such as dentures made of the highest quality, or other specific maintenance that contributes to your ongoing oral health.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Beautiful Smiles
Not only are healthy teeth and gums important for your physical health, but an attractive smile is also vital to your mental wellbeing and self-esteem. Additionally, missing teeth can interfere with your ability to eat and enjoy your favorite foods.
Some of the cosmetic services we provide include:
- Restorative dentistry including dental implant placement and restoration
- Bone grafting to provide a stable environment for implant posts and beautiful restoration teeth.
- Cosmetic dentistry restorations including beautiful crowns and veneers. Crowns go on over existing teeth, while veneers go over the fronts of teeth. Both provide dentistry for winning and seamless smiles.
Laser Dentistry and IV Sedation for Your Comfort
One of the primary benefits of laser dentistry in Lafayette, LA is that it retains the integrity of your tooth. Because we use lasers to detect decay and eliminate it while leaving healthy tooth structure, we remove only what is necessary to complete the procedure. This results in stronger, long-lasting fillings.
Dental handpieces use friction to remove decayed material. That type of movement may create small fractures allowing bacteria into your tooth and further the chance of decay. Because bacteria are microscopic, even the most minor crack can let decay take hold.
When we use dental lasers at Drs. Smith and Domingue’s dental office, we do so because we know that lasers can be much more comfortable for our patients. Because the lasers do not rely on friction, we eliminate much of the noise and grinding. For many of our patients, that means more comfort and peace of mind.
IV sedation in Lafayette, LA is another crucial aspect of what we do. Dr. Smith and Dr. Dominique do not want anxiety to keep you from getting excellent dental care.
With IV sedation, a safe and reliable way to ease your anxiety, we can customize the level of sedation. Often, we can complete lengthy procedures in a single or fewer visits, too. In many cases, our patients do not remember their procedures following IV sedation.
Our Commitment to the Community
In addition to caring for our patients in our Lafayette dental office, we also take time out of our schedules to provide high-quality dental care to those in need. Dr. Smith has devoted time to providing dental care to those in other countries who are less fortunate, and we also volunteer at local community clinics. We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality dental care.
