At Our Aurora Office, We Provide Preventative Care and Dental Restorations

Posted on: August 1, 2016

Dental RestorationsIf you damage your tooth, we offer dental restorations in our Aurora office that can help.  Otherwise, for preventative care, we prefer to see you in our family dentist office twice a year. This allows us to remove the plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums that can lead to cavities and infections.  We view this as incredibly important because of how vital your teeth are to everyday life.  Your teeth make it possible for you to call your best friend and chat about your day, grab dinner with a client and smile at a stranger.  Without a full set of healthy teeth, even these normal daily activities would be difficult, if not impossible, to do.  Fortunately, you can keep your teeth healthy, and we are the right dental office to do so.

One example of why it is important to schedule these regular teeth cleanings is gum disease.  When you have some of the early signs of gum disease, we can treat it by performing a deep cleaning to remove the plaque from beneath your gums.  This simple procedure is easy to recover from and will allow your gums to return to good health.  If the plaque remains in place, your gums might begin to recede, creating pockets in the gum tissue.  Bacteria can gather in these pockets, attack your teeth and lead to eventual tooth loss.  By scheduling regular dental care, this can be prevented.

Why your family needs a family dentist that provides dental restorations

You never know when your family might need dental restorations or when someone will get a toothache and need to have an infected tooth treated.  When this happens, we can perform a root canal in order to save the tooth.  You also cannot plan for an accident.  However, they happen on a regular basis. You may get into a car wreck or have a tooth knocked out on the baseball field.  When you do, we can help because we practice restorative dentistry.  We can typically save a tooth that has been damaged using solutions like a dental crown that surrounds the damaged tooth like a cap.  Regardless of what you need or when you need it, we can help.

The solutions we offer in our Aurora family dentist office.

Beyond preventative care and dental restorations, we can also improve the way that your smile appears.  We offer cosmetic dentistry solutions that can transform the appearance of your smile.  Teeth whitening, for example, can whiten your teeth by eight shades or more in one treatment.  Dental veneers can be placed on your teeth to close any gaps that you have, to cover dark stains, and to change the shape and size of your teeth.  As a solution that sits on top of your natural teeth, it is minimally invasive and can give you a gorgeous Hollywood-style smile.  Simultaneously, we can also replace any teeth that you have lost.  One way to do so is with a dental bridge that is secured to your surrounding teeth using dental crowns.  We can also place a dental implant where the missing tooth was, for a natural and durable solution.  Regardless of what your health or restorative dentistry needs are, we have a solution for you.
