Dr. Meredith Davis agrees with the American Dental Association: patients of all ages should visit the dentist for a standard checkup and cleaning at least twice a year. This is often enough that we’ll be able to clean your teeth in the areas you can’t reach at home, and it’ll also give us a chance to catch and treat any dental issues you might have BEFORE they can cause real problems.
Of course we can! We’re able to handle a wide variety of restorative cases. If your teeth are damaged because of decay or injury, we have an assortment of treatments that can repair your smile and make it look and feel better than ever.
Yes, and we have a variety of ways we can do this. If you have multiple missing teeth, we may choose to use a dental bridge or a partial denture. For an entire arch of teeth, we can even provide you with a natural-looking full denture. However, for a more permanent solution, we may suggest dental implants. They are the gold standard of tooth replacement because they not only rebuild your teeth above the gum line, but below as well, which helps them provide higher-quality and longer lasting results overall.
We actually can! We can replace your old metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. These are made of a composite resin, and as the name implies, they can be specially colored to match the rest of your teeth. Plus, they actually do a better job of strengthening your teeth as well because the material is able to directly bond to your enamel.
We have a variety of cosmetic treatments that can enhance just about any aspect of your smile you want. We can use porcelain veneers to give you a complete smile makeover, provide the most reliable teeth-whitening method available today, and even quickly fix small chips and cracks with direct bonding. All in all, whatever you want to change about your smile, we can do it for you.
Try to find your tooth, pick it up only by the crown, gently rinse it off, and then call us as soon as you can. This qualifies as a dental emergency, and we can possibly put your tooth back if you come to see us quickly. Try to place the tooth back into your mouth if possible, and if you can’t, put it in a container of milk. It’s vital that the tooth stay wet until we see you.
We completely understand if you’re anxious about visiting the dentist—you’re not the only one! Simply let us know and we’ll do everything we can to help you have a relaxing visit. We can even offer you nitrous oxide sedation, which will involve you breathing in an odorless gas that will help you feel warm and calm while you’re in the treatment chair.
