Are you unhappy with your smile?

Do you hide it because of stained or dull-looking teeth?

Do you have chipped, cracked, crooked or missing teeth that make you self-conscious?

Do you simply have some imperfections in your smile that you would like to have corrected?

If you’re not happy with your smile, a beautiful smile definitely achievable. Advances in cosmetic dental care have made it possible for the dentist with the right training, qualifications, and expertise to completely redesign your smile.

Dr. Fontenot will take the extra time to evaluate your goals, review your options and hold your hand through the decision-making process, to help you achieve the smile you desire and deserve.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are excellent for masking cracked, chipped, broken, discolored, or slightly misaligned teeth. They are customized tooth casings that ‘are bonded’ and fit tightly over the tooth, hiding imperfections. Veneers are specially made to match the natural tooth enamel, resulting in a clean, natural-looking, flawless smile. With our advanced capabilities, porcelain veneers can be placed.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace one or more missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to function as the tooth root and support a prosthetic tooth. In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, dental implants restore the functionality of your teeth. Dental implants are comfortable, durable, convenient, and allow patients to eat, speak, and smile again.

Tissue Recontouring
