A Holistic Approach to Dental Care

Our restorative dental procedures not only rebuild and fortify tooth structure but also help to increase the overall appearance of your smile. Dr. Duplantis restores your missing teeth while keeping your surrounding teeth healthy through the use of therapeutic methods. Plus, our caring and compassionate office atmosphere will leave you feeling pampered.

We create individualized treatment plans based on your choices, oral health needs, and long-term goals. You’ll never feel pressured into a treatment you don’t want (or need.)

Restorative Options at Renewed Family Dental

Teeth that are in good condition can last a lifetime. However, when infection or a cavity strikes, prompt restorative treatment is critical to preserving your smile. Depending on your situation, our office provides a complete menu of restorations to choose from, including:

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Cavities are bacterial infections that weaken the tooth’s outer and inner structures. Untreated tooth decay will keep growing and spread to other teeth once the enamel has decomposed. To break the cycle of tooth decay, we will remove any damaged areas of enamel, clean the underlying tooth structure, and fill in the cavity with a tooth-colored filling. Composite fillings are less invasive to tooth enamel and more attractive, eliminating the need for silver amalgam fillings that require additional tooth alteration. 

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can have a big impact on how your bite functions and looks overall. Fortunately, a bridge can preserve healthy tooth spacing and oral function. Bridges are constructed with two functional crowns anchored to neighboring teeth and an artificial crown suspended between them to fill in the open space. Used with dental implants, a bridge can also replace numerous teeth at one time, doing away with the need for a partial denture.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as “caps,” protect and encase the surface of your tooth above the gums. They are required when there has been excessive structural damage (such as large cavities and fractures) or after a root canal treatment. Each crown is made of durable ceramics that we match to your adjacent tooth enamel. That way they blend in (and not stand out) when you speak or smile. We can also place dental crowns on top of implants for individual tooth replacement.

Sedation Dentistry

We want you to be as relaxed as possible in our Lake Charles office. That’s why we offer sedation dentistry for our restorative patients. Sedation is an excellent option if you dislike going to the dentist, have a sensitive gag reflex, or feel a little nervous about getting dental work completed. Multiple procedures can normally be bundled into one session, allowing you to spend less time in the dentist’s chair.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

As your dentist in Lake Charles, we offer many restorative dentistry services. During your visit, we’ll discuss which teeth can be preserved or repaired and if any need to be replaced entirely. Dr. Duplantis, one of Lake Charles’s most caring restorative dentists, provides a variety of tooth replacement options for our patients who are experiencing missing teeth.

Please let us know if you require assistance in financing your restorative dental treatments. We accept many types of insurance and offer an in-house membership plan. We don’t want the expense of your care to keep you from accessing the care you need to stay healthy.
