In all the media flurry about cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers, the value of good general dentistry gets a little lost. But without a healthy mouth, a beautiful smile is not possible. If you have any gum disease or tooth decay, that must all be corrected before your smile can be made more attractive.
So although general dentistry may not have the glamour of cosmetic dentistry, it is essential, and we offer a full array of basic procedures to establish good dental health for your lifetime. Of course, you need to do your part too, with effective brushing and flossing. But part of our job as general dentists, as well as cosmetic dentists, is to show you how to effectively brush and floss, so that when you come for your regular check-ups, our hygienist does not have much to do.
General Dentistry Procedures
•Dental fillings – we offer white fillings for your smile’s beauty and your long-term dental health. You can choose from white dental composite or porcelain and we will explain the differences.
•Porcelain Crowns – porcelain crowns are as effective as gold crowns and more attractive.
•Gum treatments – we use our laser for removing bacteria and decay from the gums, as well as for improving a “gummy” smile.
•Breath treatment – if you have chronic halitosis, we can diagnose and treat any dental cause and refer you if the cause is medical.
•Dentures– missing teeth need to be replaced as soon as possible to maintain the alignment of the remaining teeth. We also offer dental implants for a permanent replacement of one or more teeth.
•Root canals – sometimes a tooth’s root is damaged by bacteria and must be cleaned out and filled with a dental cement. That will make any extraction unnecessary.
•Snoring treatment – a snoring habit can be annoying but it can also rob you of sleep and damage the throat.
