It’s Time To Get Creative About Your Smile

Full Mouth Reconstruction 1 | Monroe, LA - Bayou Dental Group

You want to be happy, right?

No two people will want the same things, however. Some people enjoy getting out in nature. Other people prefer to spend their days in a workshop tinkering with mechanical devices.

And some people just want time to spend time with their family or curled up with a good book.

These differences are what make each of us who were are, and our smiles are a big part of who we are, too. Unfortunately, some people hide their smiles because they don’t like something about their teeth.

That makes our team members sad here at Bayou Dental Group. We prefer to see all our patients smiling when they visit our dentist office in Monroe, LA.

It’s also why Dr. Finley developed what he calls the Smile Creation procedure.

Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

We are all creative in our own ways, so why not put that creativity to use to help yourself.

Smile Creation begins with you. Think about what your ideal smile would look like. Better yet, get a pen and paper and write it down.

When you look in the mirror or look at a picture of yourself, what do you see in your smile? More importantly, what would you like to see?

What would you like to be different about your teeth or your smile?

When you are ready, call our office at 318-302-4236 or use our online contact form to request a consultation with Dr. Finley.

Conversation Starter

Bring your list to your meeting with Dr. Finley. This will help you during this initial discussion.

Dr. Finley wants to understand what you want. It’s important to him and to us that you are involved in the Smile Creation process from planning stages all the way to the final stages when you see your new smile for the first time.

But it starts with you sharing what you would like to see in the mirror each morning.

Dr. Finley is one of the most skilled cosmetic dentists in Louisiana, and he has earned accolades from his peers across the country.

In addition to being the Pelican State’s only accredited American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, he also is a five-time award winner in the AACD’s smile gallery competition (which is a demonstration of the cosmetic care he has provided for our patients).

No matter what changes you would like to make, we want to help, and you will be in the hands of a dental professional who can make it happen.

Planning And Preparation

We can’t stress how important it is for you to be involved in the planning process. Many times, there is more than one treatment for a problem (e.g. teeth whitening or veneers for teeth that are discolored).

Your input will be a valuable part of deciding which service or services we will use. We want you to be involved in planning your new smile.

We will use our resources to help, too.

One example of this is our cone beam scanner. We can use it to create a 3D model of your mouth, which will make it easier to determine how to make the changes you want to see.

The services we use will depend on your goals.

Dental bonding and dental crowns are both ways to restore teeth that are damaged as a result of wear and tear, chipping, and breaking.

Teeth whitening can remove stains from your teeth. Veneers can conceal the parts of your teeth that you don’t like and cover them with something you want others to see.

Dental implants and dental bridges could be part of your makeover, too, if you need to replace missing and lost teeth.


After we have worked out the plans for your new smile, we will work with you. This may mean making changes one step at a time, or it may mean planning a single visit to transform your smile.

Either way, our goal is to give you a reason to smile, and you will be even happier when you know that you helped to create it.
