Professional teeth whitening is a simple procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Unlike the whitening treatments you’ve probably seen advertised on TV, professional teeth whitening is completely customized.
Your trays are created individually to fit your teeth perfectly, which provides brighter, more even results and helps to avoid irritating sensitive tissues like your gums and lips. We’ll monitor your progress and work with you to make sure you are getting the results you want.
In the past, dental veneers were a cosmetic option only available to celebrities and the very wealthy. Today, veneers are a much more affordable and practical option to treat a range of cosmetic flaws. Because placing dental veneers requires that we remove a small amount of your enamel, the process is irreversible; however, the difference that can be made using porcelain veneers is often astounding.
If your teeth are significantly damaged by trauma or decay, or if they are discolored because of extensive fillings, crowns are an excellent option to restore your teeth and return them to full function. Unlike older crowns, which often left a distinctive dark gray line right at the gumline, ceramic crowns are indistinguishable from your own teeth.
Dental Implants and Other Prosthetics
Our Acadiana dentists, Drs. Jerome Smith and Danny Domingue, are specialists in placing and restoring dental implants. If your smile is marred by gaps where teeth should be, come see us to find out what a difference dental implants can make.
Dental implants are permanent, function just like your own teeth, and look so natural that nobody else will ever know that you have had dental work done. Drs. Smith and Domingue have received extensive training and recognition in this procedure. Other dentists around the Southeast come to our Acadiana dental office to learn new techniques from Drs. Smith and Domingue. Even if other dentists have told you that you are not a candidate for implants, please call to schedule an appointment so we can see what we can do for you.
If you decide that dental implants are not for you but you would still like to restore your missing teeth, we can talk to you about other options, which may include dentures, partials, or bridges.
