AREAS WE SERVE
Our office is on Teasley Lane, a main road through the outskirts of Denton. It’s easily accessible in the middle of US Route 377 and Interstate 35E. In addition to Denton, we serve the following communities:
COSMETIC SMILE TRANSFORMATIONS
Cosmetic dentistry can completely overhaul your smile. Though many people think cosmetic dentistry is just about aesthetics, cosmetic dental problems go hand in hand with oral health problems. Not only can cosmetic dentistry give you a smile you’re proud to show off, but it also gives you a healthier smile.
Crooked teeth are one of the most common problems people want to take care of. And crooked teeth lead to problems like TMJ disorders, tooth decay and gum disease, and chipped and worn teeth. Invisalign is a solution that can eliminate all of these issues. Clear plastic aligners slowly shift your teeth into the ideal position.
Porcelain veneers are a handy tool to treat almost any cosmetic issue you can think of. They’re thin shells of dental ceramic that go over the front and sides of teeth. Porcelain veneers are color-matched to any shade if you have discolored teeth that don’t respond to professional whitening techniques. Veneers also take care of chips, gaps in teeth, crooked or misshapen teeth, and more.
GENERAL DENTISTRY AND PREVENTATIVE CARE
Preventative care is the basis of oral health and our practice. Regular dental visits include dental cleanings. Our team has specialized dental tools to help remove plaque and tartar in areas you can’t quite reach with a standard toothbrush and floss. This keeps your mouth safe from problems like tooth decay and gum disease.
A full oral exam is also done at each bi-annual preventative care visit. Monitoring your teeth regularly means we notice when things change. Oral problems like gum disease or oral cancer can be hard to detect with an inexperienced eye. Our staff notices the subtle changes between visits. Catching problems early means that you’ll have conservative care that’s less expensive.
At our office, we practice family dentistry. We invite patients of all ages to get care in our office. From the youngest child to the oldest grandparent, we provide age-specific care to the unique problems in your age bracket. The same issues most prominent in toddlers are rarely the same issues that senior patients face.
RESTORE YOUR SMILE
Even though they’re strong, teeth can break, rot, or fall out. Restorative dentistry restores your smile to its natural glory. For tooth replacement, our office recommends dental implants whenever possible. They’re the only replacement method that replaces the tooth root, giving you back 100% of your bite function and stopping your jawbone from deteriorating further.
We practice conservative dentistry. Whenever possible, we preserve the natural tooth instead of extracting it. Dental crowns are one of the best ways to help us do this. They can keep together teeth that are severely cracked, broken, or decayed. Keeping the tooth root is essential to prevent jawbone deterioration.
