Westwego Dental Clinic and Services

Westwego Dental Clinic 

Southern Dental Care is proud to serve the residents of Westwego in addition to those in Marrero. We provide so many services at our Westwego dental clinic that you and your family won’t have to go anywhere else for treatment! The services can be broken down into roughly three categories:

  • Preventative dentistry
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Cosmetic dentistry

Preventative Dentistry

The first category covers all of the regular treatments you’re familiar with. We can handle your annual teeth cleaning or take X-rays to spot any tooth infections or decay. We’re also available for oral health assessments, where we check everything from the teeth and gums to the tongue, palate, and lips. If you’re at a higher risk for cavities, we may recommend biannual cleanings and even apply a sealant to your back teeth. In addition, our staff can advise you or your children on proper brushing and flossing techniques as well as recommend certain dietary habits.

Restorative Dentistry

This second category is the most wide-ranging, as it includes such fields as endodontics and periodontics. The former concerns the dental pulp. When the pulp in the root canal becomes infected, then it’s time for the dreaded root canal treatment. You can trust that our experienced dentist will put you at ease. Your pulp can be damaged in other ways, such as through a traumatic injury, and if the damage is too much, we’ll recommend tooth extraction. We also offer endodontic treatments for teeth that became infected after a previous root canal operation.

Periodontics is concerned with the gums, so you can visit us to have issues like gingivitis treated. Tartar buildup is another problem we address. Tartar is nothing more than hardened plaque that coats your teeth and gums. Dental cleaning won’t remove tartar; we’ll have to perform a deep cleaning, otherwise known as scaling and root planing.

Our restorative dentistry is focused mostly on cavities and cracked or missing teeth. We can make fillings, including the usual gold and silver options, but we’re proud to offer special tooth-colored fillings that use composite resins. These are perfect for those who want a more discreet appearance. When teeth are cracked, we can install dental crowns over them; these are more durable than fillings and also come in natural colors.

Missing teeth can be addressed in three distinct ways. If you only have a single missing tooth, our dental bridge will fill in that gap so surrounding teeth don’t drift into that open space. For multiple missing teeth, we recommend our removable partial dentures. It may be a struggle to adapt to them, but we’ll guide you through the early stages of wearing them.

Cosmetic Dentistry

This third category isn’t the sole province of movie stars. Orthodontics make up a major part of cosmetic dentistry, so it’s a field of dentistry that even children are familiar with. Our orthodontist will present you with various options for straightening your teeth. At Southern Dental Care, you can say goodbye to metal braces when you hear about Six Month Smiles, which are clear braces with tooth-colored archwires.

Patients often come to us for dental veneers as well. We create porcelain veneers, which are laid over a tooth either to brighten its appearance or to protect it. They can also be used to cover up large gaps between teeth. If you think veneers are too drastic a measure for treating your stained teeth, consider teeth whitening. Our dentist can apply a powerful whitening gel to your teeth, or you can take home your own bleaching kit.

Lastly, you might think it’s strange that a dentist would offer BOTOX®, but it’s a growing trend that we’re proud to be a part of. We’ll treat those frown lines and wrinkles with consummate professionalism.
