Premium Dental Services
The most effective dental treatment is prevention. We recommend twice daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste and daily thorough flossing to minimize your risk of decay and gum disease. In addition to your conscientious daily care, routine visits to our office in Houma, LA, every six months will ensure a healthy mouth. During these visits, our hygienist will provide a complete cleaning, and Dr. Benoit will perform an exam. Early detection of problems allows us to treat them early or may keep them from developing!
Restorative Dental Services
At Benoit Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we strive to keep your teeth in fully functioning condition. Restorative services often overlap with cosmetic services because they offer aesthetic value in addition to restoring function.
If, for any reason, you lose a tooth or have one extracted, it should be replaced. Teeth adjacent to a space from a missing tooth can drift and move, causing problems with bite, speech, and more. Dental implants are a permanent solution. A small titanium rod is placed in the gum to hold a natural-looking crown. The implant and crown will look and function like a normal tooth.
In the event of a very deep cavity that reaches the tooth root, root canal therapy must be performed. The damaged tooth pulp is removed, the interior of the tooth is cleaned, and the tooth is sealed to prevent further damage. If the tooth structure is compromised, a crown may be placed to support the existing tooth.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures
Cosmetic dental services are performed to improve the look of your smile. Some cosmetic procedures also provide restorative value, such as crowns and tooth-colored fillings. Others focus only on aesthetic value.
Wine, coffee, tea, smoking, some foods, and age can stain teeth or cause yellowing. The good news is that Benoit Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers in-office teeth whitening. In less than an hour, your teeth can reach up to eight shades lighter! Prefer to do it at home? Ask us about in-home whitening kits.
Veneers are thin porcelain sheets that are placed on the surfaces of the front teeth to cover stains that cannot be removed with whitening, repair chipped or worn teeth, or cover gaps or alignment problems.
