Procedures Performed in Our Dental Center
When you visit our Temple Terrace, FL dental center, we will begin by examining your teeth and gums. The examination allows us to identify any cavities that require treatment or gum disease that we need to deal with before viewing other treatment possibilities. Since our first priority is your health, we will address these issues before anything else. Next, we will discuss what you do not like about your smile so that we can plan for how to best correct it. With the wide variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions we have available, we will do everything in our power to address the issue in our dental center. Some patients even find that they do not need braces after we finish improving their teeth.
Some Examples of the Procedures We Perform:
When you visit our Temple Terrace dental center, we can restore damaged teeth, including cracked or chips to the enamel. We have several tools for correcting problems that include a dental bonding procedure. Natural-looking solutions are often the preferred choice since they blend in with the surrounding teeth. Our goal for restorations is to create a tooth that looks beautiful while being entirely functional.
In our dental offices, we find that preventing oral health problems is critical. In many cases, things like tooth loss can be avoided when your teeth are cleaned and examined on a regular basis. This is because tooth loss is often caused by gum disease. The disease forms when plaque becomes trapped under your gums and begins to irritate them. This condition can be caught and treated early before there are any long-term health consequences. However, if left untreated, it can lead to bone and tooth loss.
In our dental center, we can improve the appearance of your teeth and do so by closing gaps between your teeth, covering dark stains, and even changing the overall shape of your teeth. If you want a Hollywood-style smile, this is possible with a trip to our dental office. natural tooth remains in place, but we alter the size, shape, and shade. While there are multiple options available to the patient, we can also use teeth whitening to remove the stains. We can assist with that in our Temple Terrace dentist office. Our whitening treatment is far more effective than what you can purchase in the store since it will whiten your teeth by eight shades or more after penetrating the enamel. This creates a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile, and the procedure is completely non-invasive.
