Dental Restorations

Our primary objective at Duhon Family Dentistry is to prevent, repair, and restore your beautiful smile. For many reasons, dental restorations have become a necessary part of life and cosmetic dentistry practices. Poor dental hygiene, genetics, infrequent exams, and other risk factors may result in pain, discomfort, or simply an unwanted smile.

Our dental restorations are designed to restore the function and appearance of your smile while also improving your overall oral health. Below is a list of dental restoration services our dental office offers in Lake Charles, LA.

Tooth Extractions

We offer both invasive and non-invasive tooth extractions. In most cases, we opt for surgical extractions when wisdom teeth become impacted or when we foresee future issues with wisdom teeth.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown fully encases the entire portion of a tooth that lies above the gums. These caps restore a tooth's shape, size, and strength, maintaining or improving your smile's appearance. Dental crowns also protect the remaining tooth from further decay and damage.

Dental Implants

Dental implants begin with tiny titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone. The implant represents the root of a prosthetic tooth. Once in place, these implants bond to the bone during the osseointegration period. Once the dental implant is firm, a prosthetic tooth is then attached to the implant, offering you a natural bite and a beautiful smile.

Dental implants are often regarded as the most effective tooth replacement option. That's precisely what we aim for at Duhon Family Dentistry, beautiful smiles with functional bites.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

DenturesIt's not uncommon for individuals to lose most or all of their teeth via injury, gum disease, or tooth decay. Fortunately, we have several options to replace missing teeth. Dentures are removable dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. Dentures may be used with dental implants (all-on-4) or with an adhesive to secure the denture to the gums.

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures are recommended when all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain strong in the upper or lower jaw.

Losing most or all your teeth can radically impact your daily life. Dentures allow you to speak and eat more efficiently than you could without teeth. Furthermore, the loss of most or all your teeth will allow your facial muscles to sag - an appearance that may be undesired. Dentures may help support the muscles in your face and allow you to maintain a pleasing appearance. Dentures can be made to resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much or may even improve the look of your smile. For affordable dentures, contact us today.

Root Canal

The procedure involves cleaning or removing the pulp from the tooth's root canals. With dental advances and local anesthetics, most people have only slight to no discomfort during a root canal procedure. A root canal is far better than living with the pain of a decayed tooth.

Veneers

Diagram of veneersVeneers are a thin porcelain or composite resin covering that are permanently bonded to the front surface of a tooth or teeth. Veneers can whiten your smile, fix minor cosmetic issues, and replace damaged enamel.

Dental veneers are an excellent way to hide discolored, crooked, or damaged teeth, but it's essential to consider the pros and cons. Veneers are permanent but may only last 10-15 years before needing to be replaced. Cost can vary based on need. However, one thing is for sure, they can be costly and are not typically covered by insurance. Make an appointment with our dentist to determine if dental veneers are the right solution for improving your confident smile.
