Our General & Preventive Dental Services
Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings
The first step toward great oral health is visiting the dentist twice a year for a routine dental check-up. Your appointment will start off with a comprehensive dental exam, which may include dental X-rays, periodontal probing, oral cancer screenings, diagnosis and treatment recommendations, and thorough teeth cleanings. The compassionate staff at First Impression Dentistry will do everything we can to make you comfortable, and we promise to get you in and out of our office as quickly as possible.
Dental Fillings and Crowns
When cavities start to eat away at your tooth enamel, the dentists at First Impression Dentistry can protect the integrity of the tooth with a tooth-colored dental filling. If the damage is too extensive for a simple filling, then a partial or full dental crown may be needed. These synthetic caps are placed on top of the tooth to fully restore functionality and give the tooth a natural-looking appearance.
If you are missing a section of teeth, then dental bridges can fill out your smile and restore your bite. A bridge is made up two dental crowns with a false tooth or teeth in between. The crowns will be anchored to the teeth on either side of the gap to hold the bridge in place. At First Impression Dentistry, we offer a variety of dental bridges to choose from, including conventional, cantilever, and resin-bonded bridges, so take the opportunity to sit down with your dentist and determine the best option for your dental needs.
When you have several teeth missing or no natural teeth at all, then custom-made dentures are the perfect solution. These removable false teeth are made of acrylic resin and can be created to match your existing teeth. Dentures can restore your ability to chew and speak properly and provide support for facial muscles. Whether you need partial dentures to fill out your smile or complete dentures for a total smile makeover, First Impression Dentistry is happy to help!
As part of your routine dental exam, the dentists at First Impression Dentistry will check for gum disease. In the early stages of gum disease (gingivitis), plaque builds up beneath the gumline and causes the tissue to swell or bleed. If left unchecked, gingivitis may advance to periodontitis, which can cause irreversible damage to the jaw bones and connective tissues and lead to tooth loss. If you are suffering from periodontitis, our knowledgeable and skilled team will employ the very latest techniques to help restore the health of your teeth and gums.
