Your oral health is essential for your general well-being and overall satisfaction with life. It's fulfilling to have strong teeth and gums that are healthy and clean, as well as a bright and attractive smile.

While we can go to our local Prairieville dentist, serving the 70769 area, solely for routine dental check-ups and exams, your dental possibilities do not end there. You can improve the shape, size, and shade of your tooth; you can get beautiful pearly whites or restore missing teeth. Dr. Daniel Palm can help enhance the look of your smile, along with restoring your oral health. 

Dental Crowns and Bridges in Prairieville, LA

Have you recently cracked or chipped a tooth? If you've had a recent smile mishap, or you have a cavity that's too large for a filling or a recent root canal—Dr. Palm may recommend a dental crown to improve your function. Dental crowns cover the entire surface of your tooth; they protect and preserve a weakened tooth with a natural and attractive dental prosthetic. 

If you are missing one or multiple teeth, you may be interested in a dental bridge to restore the appearance of your smile. Dr. Palm affixes dental crowns to the neighboring teeth and bridges the gap with an artificial tooth. The entire procedure looks so natural that no one will ever be able to tell that you are wearing a dental prosthetic. Dental bridges also help restore your chewing and speaking function, which can restore self-confidence and happiness.

Tooth-Colored Fillings in 70769

Traditional metal fillings are easy to spot when they begin to darken over time. Many patients prefer to use tooth-colored or white fillings to fill out cavities. Dr. Palm can also use tooth-colored filling as dental bonding for imperfect teeth. Dental bonding can correct minor smile flaws like chipped teeth, gaps or spaces between teeth, and unevenly shaped teeth. There are many possibilities that dental bonding can provide, which can be pretty exciting for patients who are seeking a non-invasive way to improve their smile. 

 Extractions & Wisdom Tooth Removal in 70769

While preventive dentistry and good oral hygiene can prevent dental problems, they can't prevent everything. Dr. Palm at Palm Family Dentistry will do everything in his power to save your tooth, but some times a tooth extraction is necessary to avoid further oral issues. We provide stress-free and gentle tooth extractions in the comfort of our dental office, and we ensure that the entire process is painless and relaxing. When wisdom teeth grow in impacted, Dr. Palm may recommend a tooth extraction to prevent your other teeth from being affected. If you are feeling pain from wisdom teeth growing in, please call to schedule an evaluation to make sure they can grow in without issue. 

Preventative Dentistry

At Palm Family Dentistry, preventive dentistry is invaluable in maintaining good oral health and delaying costly surgery. Our preventative dentistry includes dental check-ups, cleaning, and x-ray exams. We advise our patients to maintain regular check-ups along with diligent at-home oral health care like daily brushing and flossing. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Our cosmetic dental services include professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and orthodontics. Cosmetic dentistry combines the science of dentistry with beauty and symmetry—it's truly an art. Your dentist takes into account the size, shape, and alignment of your teeth to come up with a smile treatment plan. Together we can create the smile of your dreams.
