Keep Your Pearly Whites Healthy With Dental Cleanings & Exams
A basic cleaning and exam at Natural Smiles involves us reviewing your teeth and gums and checking your mouth for any irregularities. We recommend that you visit our office twice every year for a cleaning and exam.
During your cleaning, we remove plaque and tartar from the teeth (a process known as scaling) and then polish the teeth to make it harder for dangerous bacteria to attach. We can even use our intraoral cameras to show you what we see inside your mouth!
Fluoride Treatments And Dental Sealants
At Natural Smiles, we focus on prevention and patient education. Nothing gives us more pleasure than to tell someone they have a clean bill of dental health. We can stack the deck in your favor and lock out harmful plaque and bacteria with treatments like dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that fights off dental decay and even can restore early stages of tooth decay.
A dental sealant is placed on the biting surface of the teeth and blocks out acid and plaque. We’ve found that dental sealants placed on molars can reduce the risk of tooth decay by up to 80 percent.
These preventive treatments are ideal for any patient and can be completed in one day. Give us a call today to set up your treatment.
Restore Teeth With Safe Tooth-Colored Fillings
Fillings are one of the first lines of defense against tooth decay.
Today, we have exchanged metal fillings for more aesthetic composite fillings. Metal fillings are strong, but contain low levels of mercury. While the American Dental Association has found that the mercury levels in metal fillings are not harmful to people, most patients prefer to not have this material in their mouths!
Composite fillings are durable and match the natural shade of your teeth. This type of filling also requires less drilling, and the filling material quickly hardens.
Fixing Damaged and Missing Teeth With Crowns, Bridges
Crowns and bridges are used to restore missing teeth or damaged teeth. A crown is used for a single tooth, while a bridge consists of a series of crowns and replaces a missing tooth.
Our crowns and bridges are long-lasting and do not contain metal. We only use the most aesthetic all-ceramic material like porcelain. Because our crowns and bridges are metal-free, you don’t have to worry about discoloration around the gumline.
Protect Your Teeth With Athletic Mouthguards And TMJ Treatment
A mouthguard used at night or during sporting events can protect your teeth and beautiful smile.
We began offering custom mouthguards for athletes because of their superior performance to traditional boil-and-bite mouthguards. We can also use a mouthguard to treat teeth grinding.
Our custom mouthguards are made from high-strength material designed in a California dental lab.
Save Your Teeth, Control Gum Disease
The gums are one of the most important tissues in your body. An infection in the gums can lead to gum disease, which more than 50 percent of adults will struggle with. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and has been connected to problems like heart disease and diabetes.
At Natural Smiles, we offer nonsurgical gum disease options like scaling and root planing, also known as a deep cleaning. If you suffer from gum disease, we recommend visiting our office about once every three to four months for maintenance.
We can even use special lasers to reshape your gums for cosmetic dentistry purposes.
