Teeth Whitening in Baton Rouge, LA

Our Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry Services

Teeth Whitening

At Michael A. Lala DDS, we provide an in-office whitening treatment, which involves using a hydrogen peroxide bleach and a high-intensity light. The process takes about an hour, and you will immediately see drastic results!

We can also provide an at-home treatment. We will custom-create fill trays for your top and bottom teeth and give you a bleaching gel to fill in the trays. You should apply the gel once a day. This process takes more time than in-office whitening, but is safer and more effective than over-the-counter solutions.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a process to improve the appearance of your teeth using a composite resin. We custom-color the resin to match your smile, and using a high-intensity curing light, apply it to your teeth. Bonding can fill in chips, gaps and cracks as well as discoloration. This is a relatively inexpensive and simple cosmetic treatment.

Fillings

When you have a cavity, we will remove the decay and fill in your tooth to restore its strength. Fillings come in a variety of materials, such as amalgam silver, gold, or a tooth-colored composite resin. Tooth-colored fillings are a popular choice, as they aren’t noticeable in your smile.

Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a cap placed over a tooth that has experienced decay or trauma, to restore strength and prevent further damage. A bridge is used to fill in a gap in the smile. To create a bridge, crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap and are connected to an artificial tooth placed into the gap to secure it in place.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term solution to having a missing tooth. An implant restores the look and health of your smile! This post is inserted into the bone beneath the gums and acts as a replacement to the root of a tooth. Over a period of about three months, the post melds with the jaw bone. At this point, the tooth is restored with a crown, which will function as a real tooth.
