We Can Place Discreet Fillings

Dental work has to take place when a cavity forms if you want to save your tooth and prevent potentially serious complications. If the problem is identified in time, you can enjoy results while only requiring a dental filling. This treatment will ultimately limit how much work is needed for your tooth, as your Riverside, CA dentist will apply a composite resin substance directly at the site of decay and leave the surrounding enamel unchanged. This material can both match your tooth structure and bond to it to provide lasting support. We should note that we are prepared to take on larger cavities that require more involved work and different restorations when needed. (more…)

Deciding On A Teeth Whitening Treatment

When you decide to do something about dental discoloration, you can picture your treatment resulting in significant changes to the way you look. What you should know is that not every approach to treating stains will produce the results that you really want to see. If you depend on a store bought treatment option, you can feel let down by how little change actually occurs. Fortunately, this is not the only option for you to explore. There are also different cosmetic dental procedures that your Moreno Valley, CA dentist can recommend based on your needs and concerns for your smile. We provide teeth whitening treatment you take home as well as a procedure we provide in the office. There is also the option to explore a different service for patients who are trying to fix issues with intrinsic discoloration. (more…)

Better Smile Care Between Checkups

If you consistently book preventive dental appointments, you can enjoy regular protection against oral health threats that can have a negative impact on your appearance and health.

Choosing Between Invisalign And Metal Braces

Is it time for you to take on problems with poor teeth spacing? Many people have doubts about their appearance because they have gaps between teeth, or because of excess space that acts as a distracting flaw. As you look into treatment, you can find that there is more than one way to approach orthodontic work. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can provide you with information on the use of traditional metal braces, but we can also take the time to discuss Invisalign treatment. With Invisalign, you have a discreet alternative approach to care that fixes spacing problems. While it can be appealing to have access to this kind of approach, there are times when more significant problems with gaps and overlaps will require the corrections made possible with metal braces.

Dental Cleanings, Deep Cleanings, And Your Smile

There are important differences between the kind of oral hygiene efforts you practice at home and the care that your hygienist provides when you come in for a routine exam. What you may not know is that there are different approaches that our Temecula, CA dentist’s office can take to caring for your smile at these appointments. For patients who exhibit signs of gingivitis, we can recommend a deep cleaning instead of the traditional cleaning that is performed at an oral health checkup. By making this change, we can take care of bacteria that are present on areas of your tooth structure covered by your gums. This removes the agents that cause issues with poor periodontal health and prevent the onset of complications that can hurt your smile and overall well-being! (more…)

Completing Cavity Care By Placing A Crown

Does having a crown placed to restore a tooth mean accepting that your smile has to be permanently changed? This can be an understandable concern when you need to undergo treatment for a tooth that is easier to see when you smile and speak. At our Corona, CA dentist’s office, we can provide treatment with a dental crown that can closely resemble your healthy enamel. By placing a restoration that can actually match a natural tooth, you can feel good about your smile and enjoy the functional support offered by your treatment. We provide both partial and full dental crowns, which means that we can personalize care in order to reduce the amount of work on your tooth structure required to complete treatment. (more…)

Dental Visits And Periodontal Health

When you show up to your next dental exam, you can expect to learn whether or not you have problems with cavities. What you should also receive feedback on is the state of your gums. If you have problems with your periodontal health, they should be addressed in a timely manner, as acting quickly will protect you against potentially severe complications. Our Riverside, CA dentist’s office is ready to both offer this feedback on your periodontal health and make treatment available when it is needed. Based on your periodontal health, we can move forward with preventive measures that give your gums the opportunity to heal, or we can discuss the need for more involved services. (more…)

Booking Teeth Cleanings And Reviews

At every general dental exam that you schedule, you can count on important protection for your smile. When these visits are booked on a consistent basis, they provide you with continued support that lets you lower risks for problems like dental decay and gum disease. When you are not as regular about booking them as you should be, you receive less protection and have a higher risk for problems with your oral health! At our Moreno Valley, CA dental practice, we can keep you informed about the state of your smile, and we can see to it that any problems that are discovered are promptly treated. We can also help by providing professional teeth cleanings that make new issues less likely to affect you. (more…)

Tooth Bonding And Smile Symmetry

It only takes one small issue with one tooth to disrupt the symmetry of your smile. It can certainly be frustrating to have one relatively minor problem disrupt your appearance in this way, but you should know that this is often an issue that can be fixed conservatively. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can provide treatment in the form of tooth bonding and contouring to fix an issue with the way you look. These services work together to correct issues with tooth shape, size, and color that create unwanted distractions. Because this removes the need for you to have a permanent restoration placed, it can ultimately lead to welcome results that only require minimal changes. (more…)

Smart Care For An Injured Tooth

Will treatment benefit your smile as well as your health? At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can provide support to help you deal with this problem in a timely manner. After meeting with you, we can assess just how severe the problem is, and from there we can recommend the appropriate care to fully resolve it.
