It doesn’t matter if you’re here for a teeth cleaning or a more intensive procedure, we work hard to make Patenaude Family Dentistry in Augusta, ME an enjoyable place to develop an appreciation for oral health. We want to provide you with all of the information we can about our practice so you feel comforted by our care.

Our Services

Our dentistry places a special emphasis on the integration of the latest materials and technology to treat our patients. This ensures not only the quality of our care, but that our team is also passionate about continuing their education in dentistry. We give you confidence in our service, so you can leave with confidence in your smile!

General Dentistry

Helping you develop healthy habits for a long future of happy smiles.

Dental Exam

Want to know the secret to a bright, beautiful smile? Simple oral hygiene habits like brushing, flossing and receiving our dental exams every six months will prevent existing problems from worsening and potential ones from developing.

Teeth Cleaning

While you may be brushing and flossing to the best of your ability, plaque and tartar can still build up on your teeth, which can cause periodontal disease. Our hygienists will remove these deposits and smooth down the surfaces so you leave here with a clean, refreshed smile.

Pediatric Dentistry

An early introduction of healthy habits establishes a lifetime of dental health. Based on the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), your child should visit our practice by their first birthday and every six months after. We’ll take gentle care of your child while providing the proper dental treatments they need to develop a healthy mouth.

Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a fusion of porcelain material bonded to a severely damaged or decayed tooth, or after receiving a root canal procedure. Although the placement of a crown is a multi-step process, the crown provides protection for up to 15 years. We use CEREC CAD/CAM technology to take impressions, mill a custom crown, and place the crown in just one visit for your convenience. We will be more than happy to discuss the benefits of a dental crown with you and explain how it will preserve your smile.
Dental Bridges

Whether you’ve experienced tooth loss from a knock-out injury or severe decay, our dental bridges are the most durable, cost-effective options for bridging the gap between missing teeth. Dental bridges play a large role in preventing the motion of neighboring teeth and difficulties chewing and speaking, and they keep your natural face shape intact.

Dental Fillings

Think you have a cavity? Pay us a visit and we’ll perform a dental exam to make sure. If you do have a cavity, dental fillings are the number-one treatment method. We will clean out the cavity and place a protective material over the tooth, which halts any additional damage and pain.

Gum Disease Treatment

Do you see red, swollen gums when you smile in the mirror? If so, you could have gum disease. Don’t worry; more than 80% of adults have experienced gum disease and fortunately, we provide many effective and pain-free treatments. Most gum disease treatments involve advanced cleaning to remove decay below the gum line. Dr. Robert and his team of hygienists will evaluate your mouth to determine which procedure is necessary.

Dentures

Despite their stigma of being necessary for the older generations, dentures can be used to replace any missing teeth and naturally make anyone look and feel younger. They are specially designed for your mouth and made with a variety of materials including a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base. We would be happy to show you the latest innovations in denture technology.

Root Canals

You may dread receiving a root canal, but having an infection in your mouth is worse. We’ll remove the infection from the inside of your tooth and prevent it from spreading. Thanks to the latest advancements, the procedure is quick and virtually painless.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Helping you develop healthy habits for a long future of happy smiles.

Teeth Whitening
If you’re someone who drinks coffee or wine, you may notice the impacts they have on the color of your smile. We offer several options for Zoom! Whitening treatments that will quickly and dramatically transform your smile, so you never have to give up drinking and eating what you want.
Porcelain Veneers

While we may not have control in all aspects of our lives, we do have the power to change our smile. If you don’t love the shape or size of your teeth, or perhaps you’re missing teeth, our porcelain veneers could be the perfect option for you.

Your unfavorable teeth will be covered with ultra-thin shells made of translucent porcelain for a complete smile makeover. Veneers are durable, versatile, and can be applied in just one dental visit. Dr. Robert and his team can craft the veneers based on what you envision your dream smile to look like.

Dental Bonding

Are your teeth chipped, stained or just missing? Dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material that “bonds” to your teeth, improving the shape and overall appearance of your smile.

Implant Restoration

In addition to our other tooth-replacement options, our cosmetic dental implants provide the best in function and aesthetics. A dental implant is securely anchored to the jawbone for reliable durability and restores the look, feel and function of a natural tooth.

Invisalign®

Gone are the days of unappealing metal braces. With Invisalign®, you can achieve a perfectly straight smile by wearing virtually invisible retainers. Our Invisalign® aligners are clear, completely fitted to your mouth and allow you to enjoy the food and drinks you love. You’ll receive a series of removable plastic aligners to be worn for a couple weeks until you’re fitted for a new set. Over time, you’ll have perfectly straight teeth and a newfound confidence.
