What is general dentistry?

For Dr. Shelly Ereth Barone, our experienced dentist, and our entire dental team, there is nothing more important than ensuring the overall health of your teeth, gums, and jaws. We believe a healthy smile is the first step to a healthier, more fulfilling life. General dentistry, the field of dentistry dedicated to preventing and treating damage to your oral cavity, allows us to expertly take care of your smile. Among our general dentistry treatments are restorative fillings, custom-made dental crowns and bridges, and comprehensive TMJ treatment.

At Shelly Ereth Barone, we are pleased to offer general and family dentistry in Metairie, Louisiana, to patients of all ages, from your child’s first dental cleaning to replacing missing teeth for our senior patients.

When should I visit the dentist?

To fully utilize the benefits of our dental office, we encourage you and your family to visit Dr. Shelly Ereth Barone at least twice a year, generally once every six months. This will allow us to prevent decay, diagnose any conditions early, and provide treatments while they remain simple and affordable. If you have not visited the dentist in some time, we welcome you to call our office at 504-832-1164 and schedule an appointment today. We are grateful for the chance to serve your smile!
