Our general dentistry procedures, friendly staff in FishHawk, and the little extras help you know we really care about you and your dental hygiene.

The Benefits of General Dentistry

General dentistry is a fundamental part of your dental hygiene and overall oral health:

Prevention – General dentistry helps prevent serious dental hygiene problems such as oral infections, cancers, and other dental complications.

Cavity Detection – Early detection of cavities and gum disease (gingivitis) improves the chances of eliminating the infection.

Oral Health – Research indicates a link between your oral health and overall health. By keeping your oral health in check, general dentistry protects you from health problems like heart disease.

The General Dentistry services we offer include the following:

Dental Crowns – A dental crown is an artificial tooth that, using CEREC technology, is a one-visit procedure that can cover imperfections in your smile or serve as a base for dentures or other apparatus.

Dental Fillings – We use natural-colored resin to handle any tooth decay. These fillings look just like your tooth and prevent you from suffering from any other decay in that tooth. They are also much safer than the metal fillings used in the past.

Dental Bonding – When you have a tooth that is slightly misshapen, often our dentists in Tampa, FL, choose to use dental bonding to repair it. Dental bonding is simply putty that bonds to your tooth and then is shaped to repair the tooth.

Dental Hygiene – Your oral health is important to us, so we do a variety of services to help ensure you have a bright, clean, healthy smile. We offer regular teeth cleaning and instruct you and your loved ones on proper dental hygiene and oral health.

Dental Sealants – One of the best ways to encourage dental hygiene and good oral health is to put dental sealant on your teeth. This sealant is like a "varnish" painted onto your teeth, giving them extra protection against decay.
