Smile Makeover - Baton Rouge, LA

Dissatisfied with Your Smile?

Have It Just the Way You Want It

Seen individually, flaws such as cracks, discoloration, missing teeth, or gum recession may not bother you too much. However, when your smile is full of imperfections, you’ll probably never be satisfied with it. That is, unless you have a smile makeover. You’ve seen house makeovers on TV. You may have even had an esthetic makeover with a new haircut or other services. A smile makeover is a customized, phased series of cosmetic dental procedures. As an acclaimed cosmetic dentist, Dr. John Barksdale has helped countless patients rediscover their stunning smiles with a smile makeover in Baton Rouge, LA.

Select Smile Makeover Services

Barksdale Dentistry offers a variety of services that individually or in combination provide full mouth rehabilitation.

Dental Implants
When you’ve lost teeth or have severe decay, nothing revitalizes your smile like healthy new replacement teeth. Dental implants restores your complete smile, giving you back the function and beauty of a full, natural set of teeth. A board certified implant specialist with American Board of Oral Implantology and International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Diplomate of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and a Fellow of the renowned Misch International Implant Institute, Dr. Barksdale is exceptionally qualified to place and restore dental implants.
Veneers & Lumineers®
When you have minor imperfections on your front teeth, Dr. Barksdale can conceal them with veneers or Lumineers . Made of porcelain, these slender pieces of material have the shine and durability of real tooth enamel. They are bonded onto unsightly teeth to make their flaws disappear.
Crowns and Bridges
When your teeth are falling apart—or out—you may not need extractions or veneers or Lumineers surgery. Crowns and bridges reinforce weakened teeth after decay, trauma, root canals, and other dental treatments. Crowns restore single teeth while bridges are rows of crowns that replace one or more adjacent missing teeth.
Teeth Whitening
Want a smile that really shines? Whiter, brighter teeth await you with professional whitening. We offer a combination of in-office and home-based treatment with GLO and KöR whitening systems. Both provide quick results and won’t make your teeth more sensitive the way some over-the-counter products do.
Composite Fillings
As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Barksdale doesn’t simply want to fill an empty space in your tooth if you’ve developed a cavity. He wants to make it appear as if you never had that cavity in the first place. That’s why he uses composite fillings, also called white fillings or tooth-colored fillings. Some types of fillings can show through the teeth, but these never do!
Inlays and Onlays
Minor damage to a tooth may not call for a crown; Dr. Barksdale can often repair a tooth with inlays or onlays. Inlays cover a portion of the top and interior parts of your tooth, while onlays may cover the top and one outer surface or cusp. Just like composite fillings, these are chosen to match the color of your whole tooth for a natural, seamless look.
Minimally Invasive Gum Recession Correction
Tobacco use, aggressive brushing, and other factors can cause your gums to recede. With the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, Dr. Barksdale can pull existing gum tissue over recessed areas instead of surgically placing new tissue from another part of your mouth. That means just one treatment site and no scalpels.
