Teeth Cleaning

Regularly scheduled teeth cleaning (known in the dental industry as dental prophylaxis), is a cleaning procedure our dental hygienists perform to thoroughly clean your teeth. Teeth cleaning can halt the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis. Periodontal disease and gingivitis are caused by bacteria from plaque that colonizes either above or below the gum line. If left untreated, gum disease can cause your teeth to shift, become unstable, or totally fall out.Regular teeth cleaning can prevent gum disease, identify other health issues such as oral cancer, as well as give you fresher breath and a brighter smile.

Dental fillings restore your tooth or teeth after decay has damaged the tooth, causing a cavity or cavities. The dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the area and then fill it.

Dental bonding, or tooth bonding, is when the dentist applies a too-colored resin material to your tooth or teeth. Dental bonding restores the look of teeth damaged by tooth decay or injury and is also done for cosmetic reasons.
