Are you in need of a little bit of restoration work? Or perhaps a lot of restorative work? Whatever your situation, we have a solution for you. We offer a variety of restorative services that can help you regain your function and help you look your best. At Lapalco Family Dentistry in Marrero, LA, we are dedicated to helping our patients live their lives with as little pain and stress as possible. We know that these restorative services can help you get back to your normal life.

We offer same-day crowns, tooth-colored fillings, root canal therapy, dentures, and dental implants. These services are designed to relieve your pain, restore your oral health, and restore your overall function. Please contact our office with any specific need you may have and we will help you find a solution.

Fortunately, because of these services, there is no need to live in pain! We can repair damage before it becomes a much larger issue such as tooth loss (though we can fix that problem too!). We’d be happy to help you achieve the results you need to get back to your everyday routine.

1. Same-Day Crowns

Our office offers same-day CEREC restorations to help repair damage to your teeth. If you have experienced tooth decay or an injury of some sort and have a tooth that needs repaired, we can use a crown to restore the structural integrity of your tooth. This procedure can be very important for saving the life of your tooth and eliminating pain caused by decay or injury. If you are in need of a dental crown, please contact our office right away.

2. Tooth-colored Fillings

Our tooth-colored fillings are used to repair very small areas of damage to your teeth. If you have a cavity, we can fill it to prevent further decay and the need for a crown later down the road. Catching and filling small cavities can save you time, stress, pain, and money by helping you avoid more extensive dental work. We use a tooth-colored composite resin material for fillings because they superior in appearance and will blend right in with you natural smile.

3. Root Canal Therapy

Are you in pain? You may need a root canal. Root canal therapy is necessary when your tooth has become infected. Typical signs of infection include:

– pain when chewing
– lingering sensitivity to hot or cold
– a pimple-like bump on the gum near the infected tooth
– darkening of the tooth
– tenderness or swelling of the gums near the infected tooth

If you have any of these symptoms, please contact our office right away. By completing root canal therapy, we can eliminate your pain and restore the health of your tooth — saving your tooth from certain death.

The modern root canal process is actually very simple and painless. We access the interior of your tooth using a specialized tooth. We then remove the infected dental pulp before filling the interior cavity with a substance called gutta-percha. We will then seal the tooth again future infection and restore the structural integrity with a crown. Rest assured that there is nothing to be feared from this process — in fact, a root canal will help you feel better and restore your good oral health.

4. Dentures

We offer both removable dentures and implant-retained dentures. If you are looking for a full-arch or full-mouth teeth replacement option, our dentures may be for you. Depending on your needs, we can help you determine which type is best for your specific circumstance. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to learn more about our dentures.

5. Dental Implants

We also offer dental implants. If you are missing teeth, we can replace them using dental implants and restorations that are designed to look and feel natural in your mouth. Dental implants are the most realistic tooth replacement option on the market. Please schedule a consultation to learn more.
