Dental Cleanings & Exams
At a regular check-up, you will receive a professional dental cleaning and exam. X-rays will also be performed as needed. Your dentist will look for signs of decay or infection and discuss any concerns. If any treatment is needed, your dentist can discuss the best options for your smile. By keeping up on regular dental visits, you can avoid dental emergencies and help preserve the health of your teeth and gums.
Digital x-rays give your dentist a deeper look into your smile. X-rays help your dentist discover signs of decay and dental issues that cannot be seen on the surface. By having digital x-rays taken when your dentist recommends, dental problems can be addressed at an early stage. Digital x-rays are also quick and painless. Plus, images can be stored for future reference so you can track your smile transformation.
Some of the best dental treatments are preventative treatments. We offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to strengthen your smile. Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating that is used to cover the back molars. The hard-to-reach areas and deep crevices are sealed to keep them safe from decay and infection. Dental sealants last for many years! As for fluoride treatments, they are recommended periodically for children, teens and adults. Fluoride can help to strengthen your tooth enamel and protect your smile. If you are interested in either sealants or fluoride treatments, ask your dentist about these preventative treatments!
Crowns & Bridges
If you have a damaged or missing tooth, a dental crown can give you back your smile! More advanced than ever before, crowns are color-matched to surrounding teeth and blend in with your smile. A dental crown is used to either cap a damaged tooth or completely replace a missing tooth. A dental crown can be placed with a bridge that anchors to a tooth on either side of the gap. Both bridges and crowns can help in restoring the beauty and function of your smile!
