At Art of Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists are experienced and highly trained to provide exceptional oral healthcare solutions. We prioritize each patient’s concerns. So, we encourage you to visit us regularly and keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape!
General dentistry encompasses a wide array of dental procedures aimed at maintaining and restoring the overall health of your teeth and gums. It’s your go-to for routine dental care, handling common issues like cavities and gum problems.
Our general dentists are your oral health frontline warriors, ready to tackle everything from routine cleanings to more complex treatments, such as root canals. We ensure your oral health stays in its prime condition, helping you achieve that bright smile you’ve always wanted.
Professional dental cleaning, known as oral prophylaxis, is more than just a simple procedure. It’s the fundamental part of routine oral care. We emphasize the profound impact of these cleanings on overall dental health.
Our adept hygienists employ cutting-edge techniques, ensuring every nook and cranny of your mouth is free from plaque and tartar. Routine dental cleaning is categorized as general and preventive care. It’s because it’s a vital aspect of maintaining overall oral health.
At the same time, it’s also crucial in preventing potential dental complications, such as cavities and gum disease.
Teeth, when damaged, can cast a shadow over your oral health and self-assurance. Recognizing this, our crowns and fillings are meticulously crafted, mirroring the appearance and feel of natural teeth.
Crowns encase the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gumline and protect extensively damaged or weakened teeth. On the other hand, fillings are primarily used to repair small to moderate cavities (areas of tooth decay) by filling in the space left after the decayed tooth material is removed.
At Art of Cosmetic Dentistry, we utilize top-tier materials, ensuring the restored tooth seamlessly blends in, reinstating both its function and the aesthetic appeal of your smile.
The absence of even a single tooth can lead to feelings of discomfort and heightened self-awareness. Addressing this, our dental bridges serve as a beacon of hope. Expertly designed, they fill the void left by missing teeth, acting as a bridge between adjacent teeth. With these oral prosthetic devices, we aim to rejuvenate the natural brilliance of your smile, letting you beam with renewed confidence.
The challenge of missing several teeth is one we understand deeply. Our solution, dentures, is tailored with an unwavering focus on individual needs. Every denture we craft stands as a testament to precision, offering both functionality and an aesthetic that mirrors natural teeth. With comfort at the forefront, our dentures promise a fit that feels just right, restoring the harmony of your oral landscape.
Preventive dentistry focuses on stopping dental issues before they take root and cause problems. Think of it as your dental defense strategy. Its primary goal is to prevent oral issues before they become serious problems.
While preventive and general practice overlap to a significant extent, it’s essential to recognize their distinction. However, our patients often benefit from the complementary nature of these two areas, as our experts play a key role in providing routine care and preventive guidance.
The perils of nighttime teeth grinding and unforeseen dental injuries can be daunting. Our nightguards and mouthguards, custom-molded to perfection, stand as a protective shield for your teeth. Designed with precision, these devices are your nightly companions, warding off potential damage and ensuring the sustained health and integrity of your dental structure.
A radiant smile can be overshadowed by stains and discoloration. Our teeth whitening treatments, powered by advanced methodologies, promise to peel away the layers of dullness. With every session, we aim to amplify the natural brilliance of your teeth, ensuring that every smile you flash is imbued with confidence and brilliance.
In the realm of oral health, early detection can be a game-changer, especially when combatting oral cancer. Our screenings, rooted in precision, are meticulously designed to identify even the subtlest signs at the earliest stage. With a focus on timely intervention, we ensure that every detected anomaly is addressed promptly, paving the way for better outcomes and restoring oral health.
Specialized services in dentistry involve advanced procedures beyond the scope of general and preventive care. Our specific treatments offer a balance between comprehensive care and specialized expertise.
Our practitioners underwent additional education and training to perform these complex procedures. Throughout the years, we have mastered various techniques to provide convenient, effective, and patient-centered dental treatment.
The foundation of a radiant smile lies in the health of the gums. At Art of Cosmetic Dentistry, we champion the cause of gum health with our specialized periodontal therapy. Targeting an array of gum diseases, our treatments delve deep, revitalizing the gums and warding off complications that could jeopardize your oral health.
An infected tooth pulp can be more than just a source of pain; it can be a distressing ordeal. Our root canal therapy, a beacon of relief, is meticulously designed to address the heart of the infection. With a dual aim of preserving the natural tooth and dispelling the associated discomfort, our therapy ensures that pain becomes a distant memory and oral health is restored.
