Dr. Mitchell Friedman of Lafayette Dental Excellence has extensive experience working with both adults & children. We understand that these two groups have different needs & we address them all, providing only the highest quality regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards, & patient/parent education. We place a high emphasis on sealants, which at less than half the cost of conventional fillings are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. Without anesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most simple & important preventive services we have. Read More > >

Cosmetic Dentistry

Having a great smile can make a huge difference in the way you look & feel. We offer a complete range of cosmetic treatments to create the confident smile you’ve always wanted. We begin with a detailed smile assessment, discussing with you which aspects you like & dislike about your smile. Once our assessment is complete, we will discuss with you treatment options to help your smile look more natural and healthier. Read More > >

Restorative Dentistry

We enjoy the challenge of restoring your smile. And thanks to rapid advances in dental technology, there is much more that we can do for our patients these days. Modern ceramic materials combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team can assure you an effective & long-lasting result. For example, crowns can be used to replace the top part of a tooth when it has become irreparably damaged but the root is still healthy. On occasion, cavities can become too large for an ordinary filling, so we will suggest an alternative — a ceramic onlay or inlay. These are skillfully made in the laboratory to fit the shape of the cavity & the color of the surrounding teeth. Read More > >
