Santa Clarita DentistYou know how important regular brushing and flossing are to your dental health, and the routine visits you make to our Santa Clarita dentist once or twice a year are equally as important. Periodic examinations and cleanings by a professional are a good way to prevent future dental problems. But if issues should still arise, as they sometimes do, you can be assured of getting the needed care and attention for your situation to restore good oral health.
Our Santa Clarita dentist has cosmetic treatments to enhance your smile by improving the appearance of your teeth. A tooth whitening procedure will remove stubborn stains that brushing leaves behind, and your teeth will be considerably whiter. For imperfections that need to be hidden, porcelain veneers will cover dental flaws, such as wide spacing, chips and oddly shaped teeth. Even dental bonding, which is used to restore broken teeth, can also serve a cosmetic purpose by enhancing your smile.
Another improvement for your teeth is the use of composite, tooth-colored materials for filling cavities. The filling will not show as it blends with the natural coloration of your tooth. If you need to have cavities filled that are located in the front of your mouth, this type of filling is especially appealing.
Periodontal disease can be arrested by a scaling and root planing treatment performed by our Santa Clarita dentist. When disease has progressed and has reached the bone, oral surgical procedures are used to clear up the infection. With regular dental visits for checkups and cleanings, future periodontal disease can be avoided.
Teeth can be broken and even knocked out. When a broken tooth can be repaired through a root canal treatment, the next and final step is to fit a porcelain crown over the tooth to strengthen it and to prevent any further damage from occurring to it.
Dental implants, partial bridges and full dentures will replace missing teeth, from a single tooth to the entire mouth. Regardless of the complexity of your dental situation, our Santa Clarita dentist can assist you in correcting the problem and improving your smile.
