Today's advanced dental treatments and materials can give you a healthier, more complete smile that can last a lifetime. At Signature Smiles Family Dentistry, we can help revitalize and maintain your teeth and gums, giving you the smile you have always wanted. Here are some of the preventative and restorative treatments that we can provide.
The best way to avoid the dentist is to have regular hygiene treatments. Those patients who visit their dentist for professional hygiene treatments at least twice a year are most likely to retain their teeth throughout their lives.
You will receive a thorough examination during your oral hygiene visit. This will allow us to better inform you on the health of your teeth and gums. During treatment, the hygienist painlessly cleans the surface of the teeth and removes plaque from otherwise invisible and inaccessible places which cannot be reached by a toothbrush. Excellent home care is also vital. The hygienist will show you brushing and flossing techniques which will help you keep your teeth healthy.
Periodontal disease is an ongoing infection in the pockets around the teeth. The purpose of the periodontal treatment is to remove this infection and give these pockets a chance to heal. With extended periodontal treatment, we can reverse the effects of infection and improve your overall health.
A filling is used to restore the function, integrity and shape of a tooth when a cavity is removed. At Signature Smiles, our goal is to preserve the health of the teeth while keeping aesthetics in mind. We have several different filling materials that can be used based on the location and extent of decay.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped porcelain material that is placed over a tooth; covering the tooth to restore it's shape and size, along with strength and improve the appearance making it very natural looking and long lasting.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material bonded to the front surface of the tooth to improve the patients smile. Porcelain veneers resist stains and better mimic the way the light is reflected off natural teeth. It produces a beautiful, natural-looking smile
Root canal treatment is performed when decay will likely damage or has already damaged the nerve in a tooth by infecting the root. When this occurs, we provide treatment that will save the tooth and avoid removals.
A denture is a removable replacement of missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two type of dentures are available; a complete denture or a partial denture. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth are remaining.
Teeth stains are inevitable due to our consumption of a variety of foods and drinks. However, advanced teeth whitening technology has enabled dentists to whiten teeth without adversely affect the tooth structure.
In-office whitening is the most efficient means of whitening. There are a number of different types used, but the process is very similar for their methods; you can have you teeth whitened in one session and achieve significant results.
When getting take-home whitening, an impression is taken and a custom tray is made for the patient. Then, a supply of whitening gel is given to the patient and he/she wears tray for a few hours each day for a period of time until acceptable results are achieved.
