Our approach to Cosmetic Dentistry

Individual care

Cosmetic Dentistry - Babineau Dentistry

Digital photography is an essential aid in planning your new smile.

At Babineau Dentistry you will always receive friendly, personalized care. We are not a clinic or a “dental mill” and understand that each and every patient is unique. We take time to listen carefully to our patients, to understand their goals for their smile, to learn about any scheduling conflicts and answer all their questions.

We take great care to ensure that our patients are comfortable during each and every procedure. Our doctors have a great deal of experience and are equipped to handle the most complex cases gently and effectively.

Custom treatment plans

During your visit, we will explain what treatments options are appropriate for you and outline the pros and cons. Together, we will decide on the best course of action.

Addressing both form and function

Cosmetic Dentistry - Babineau Dentistry

Panoramic X-rays provide Dr. Lori Babineau with a view of your mouth captured in a single image.

Although cosmetic dentistry’s focus is primarily on creating a beautiful smile, we take steps to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and that your bite functions properly. If issues such as grinding, acid reflux or TMJ disorder are not addressed prior to undertaking cosmetic procedures, these problems could effectively undo the restorative work.

Our approach ensures that your healthy, lovely new smile will last a lifetime. Your treatment plan includes a number of preparatory steps, including the following.

  • Thorough review of your dental and medical records
  • Full oral exam
  • External and intraoral photography of your mouth
  • SNAP! digital imaging to plan your smile and have you view it onscreen
  • Impressions of your upper and lower arches
  • TMJ check to determine if you have any problems with your jaw joint
  • Study model (“before” of your teeth and gums) to provide us with additional information about your teeth and bite, and give us the ability to plan treatment without you being in the office
  • Selection of the color and shape of your veneers and/or crowns

Prior to beginning treatment, we will show a diagnostic wax-up, a three-dimensional model, to help you visualize your new smile and get your approval to proceed.

Cosmetic treatment can include the following:

Flaws we can correct with Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer professional-strength whitening that will get deep into the tooth and quickly whiten your teeth by several shades.

Gaps between teeth

Invisalign clear aligners can close the gap. For a quick fix of minor gaps, we also use porcelain veneers or crowns.

Gummy smiles or uneven gum line

Our soft-tissue lasers can gently remove excess gum and straighten out a gum line.

Smile Makeover Testimonials

Cosmetic Dentistry - Babineau Dentistry“John and Lori both are excellent dentists. They not only care about providing top-notch care, they keep up with most recent advances in dentistry and incorporate those into their practice.

“They also care about the aesthetic part of dentistry, and the crowns and bridge they created for me look very natural. My teeth are also much whiter.

“All the people from the front desk, to my hygienist, (little Kelly), to the Doctors are fabulous and make you feel as comfortable as possible.”

– Lynn

Cosmetic Dentistry - Babineau Dentistry“I have seen several dentists in the last few years and was not quite happy enough to stay with any of them. From my first appointment with Babineau Dentistry, I knew they were different.

“First, Dr. Babineau sat with me in an office to talk about what I was looking to accomplish and why I had come to see him. With most dentists the only conversation I have ever received was while they were looking inside my mouth.

“Then, he created a treatment plan specifically for me and made sure I was satisfied with what the results would be before we proceeded with anything.

“The whole staff has been warm and accommodating through every step of my treatment. I don’t see visits to their office as a chore.”

– Stephanie
