Many people think of a general dentist, and a dental cleaning comes to mind. This is normal, but a general dentist does far more than keeping teeth healthy. We can also perform treatments to heal infected teeth and gums, complete restorations and improve the appearance of your smile. This ranges from teeth whitening to deep cleaning gums and installing dental implants. Regardless of what is wrong with your teeth, visiting our office will give you the opportunity to feel well again.
You may need new restorations.
If you damaged a tooth and had it restored over ten years ago, you may need to replace the restoration. Dental crowns, veneers, bridges and implants are not designed to last forever. They can last for a decade or longer but as with anything, they can wear down over time. Likewise, restorations are just as susceptible to damage as natural teeth are so if you are in a car wreck, sports accident or injured on the job; your restoration could become damaged as well. If your restoration is older, we recommend that you schedule a consultation so that we can examine it and determine if it needs to be replaced before it has the opportunity to wear out and create discomfort.
We can help with sensitive teeth.
Many people suffer from sensitive teeth and by offering general dentistry in Huntington Beach, we can help to strengthen them and protect them. This way your teeth will no longer feel sensitive, and you can eat all of your favorite foods without pain. In order to do so we may use a bonding procedure or dental crowns. For those that think they are stuck with sensitive teeth, these are excellent solutions.
