At Bayou Dental Group, we put our patients first. That’s why we combine our world-class Monroe, LA dentist with a compassionate office atmosphere. You deserve to have all your questions delivered kindly and without judgment.
Below are some common questions from our patients.
Q: Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is perfectly safe when you trust the professionals!
At Bayou Dental Group, we provide customized Zoom! Whitening® that will outshine any of the whitening products you’ll find in stores. Our highly trained professionals will ensure the bleaching gel won’t irritate your gums or damage your tooth enamel.
Q: Do I really need dental cleanings if I brush and floss every day?
Yes! No matter how well you practice at-home dental care, there are some things you can receive a dental office. We use special tools to remove tartar from your teeth and polish them. And our preventive fluoride and sealants aren’t available at your local drugstore. Our dentists can detect cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer in their early and easy-to-treat stages.
Q: Does a smile creation hurt?
Not at all! Few cosmetic dentistry procedures cause pain, and we’ll always numb you before any treatment that might be painful. We’re firm believers ensuring your comfort before, during, and after your procedure.
Q: Should I get dentures or dental implants?
That depends on a few factors, including the structure of your jawbone, your goals, and your budget. You can receive implants combined with fixed dentures! The best way to learn about your options is a consultation with Dr. Finley.
Q: Why is it significant that your office both places and restores dental implants?
Dental implant placement requires an expert to carefully place artificial tooth roots, made of titanium, in your jawbone. We then restore them using dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Having both procedures done in one office by the same dentist means you will get a consistent level of care with no gaps in communication.
