General Dentistry Provides a Solid Foundation
Healthy teeth and gums start with excellent preventive and general dentistry. With a preventive checkup and cleaning every six months, we can remove the plaque and tartar that cause tooth decay and gum disease. And for children and adults who are at a higher risk of developing cavities, dental sealants and fluoride treatments provide an extra step of protection.
The benefits of fluoride for strengthening tooth enamel are well known. The mineral is present in most tap water across the country. American Dental Association (ADA) approved toothpastes and mouthwashes contain fluoride, too. But people who drink bottled water are missing out on the benefits of the mineral, and almost all children can benefit from an extra boost of fluoride. With a quick treatment performed at the end of your regular checkup and cleaning, we can provide significant strength for the tooth enamel.
Dental sealants shield the surface of the molars from the leftover food particles and bacteria that cause cavities. Thin, translucent coverings, dental sealants are completed in just a few minutes and provide years of protection against tooth decay.
Cosmetic Dentistry Makes Healthy Smiles Dazzle
Once your teeth are as healthy as can be, your cosmetic dentist can make your smile sparkle like you’ve always desired. We are happy to offer patients teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, cosmetic bonding, and full smile makeovers for people dealing with multiple aesthetic issues.
Invisalign is an increasingly popular option for patients who wish to improve the alignment of their teeth without wearing metal brackets and wires for two years on average. It’s a clear braces system that allows adults and older teens to straighten teeth far more discreetly. The Invisalign trays are removable for easy eating and cleaning, and the average treatment lasts just one year.
Restorative Dentistry Gets Smiles Back to Healthy
When decay or damage get in the way of your healthy, beautiful smile, your restorative dentist in Jacksonville comes to the rescue. And at our state-of-the-art office, getting a filling, crown, or any other type of restoration has never been easier or more comfortable. We use digital impressions instead of the uncomfortable cement that makes many people gag. Soft tissue lasers also allow us to treat gum disease or recontour gummy smiles without any sutures or stitches. Pain free, efficient dentistry? That’s something all of our patients can appreciate.
