Our General & Family Dentistry Services Include:
Pediatric dental care
We believe that a child’s good dental care leads to a healthy mouth and smile in adulthood. Our child-friendly digital x-rays evaluate hidden complications, hence developmental disorders of the teeth, growth abnormalities, and issues of the gums are monitored more effectively.
Our preventive care will effectively avoid cavities, decays, and infections. We apply fluoride and sealants on teeth susceptible to caries. We guide children on diet and cleaning with clear awareness of techniques and precautions. We carefully deal with extractions. From making children feel relaxed to treating them we are experts in communicating with them. We customize mouth guards for the sports champs.
We restore implants in our practice here at Dental Expressions. Dr.Bhoot refers her patients to a specialist for placement of the implant. A diagnosis is made for the need of an implant. It is becoming the standard of care for a patient missing a tooth. There are risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, and poor home care which may be rate limiting when recommending an implant. Implants are a great option especially when the neighboring teeth have no dental work, there is adequate bone, and the patient is healthy. It is a good way to protect the neighboring teeth and preserve the dentition. A crown is placed over the implant. This may take months depending on the patient.
Root canals save teeth from extraction and infection. The pulp cavity damaged by bacterial invasion and food particles is treated in this process. We carefully remove the infection with our advanced tools. It takes no longer than relieving your acute toothache. We carefully block further infection and soothe the pulp. We craft a procedure to check further issues at any time during the treatment. When the fillings and sealants are applied we evaluate the tooth. And we suggest postoperative care with regular checkups, regulated diet, and good oral hygiene.
The advanced digital radiography we have opted for over the traditional x-ray is much more precise, harmless, and time-saving. Digital x-rays replace the films and long processes with live monitoring of the digital images. They enable us to check the anomalies in the underlying structures of the teeth, fractures, abscesses, inflammations, and developmental disorders.
At Dental Expressions we offer topical treatment to all of our adult and pediatric patients. Fluoride reinforces enamel and it also helps with damaged enamel and demineralized structure. Lack of fluoride makes teeth prone to fractures, decay, and sensitivity. We always suggest fluoride toothpastes. Acidic beverages erode the enamel. We provide fluoride gels, varnishes, creams, and oral medications.
Cosmetic dental services
A beautiful smile boosts your self confidence and can really help your self-esteem. It can make a difference when you speak and interact. However, there can be things about your dentition that may deter you from smiling. We offer the processes and advanced techniques of teeth whitening, design and smile corrections, and esthetic restorations of teeth to give you a great smile.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services Include:
Many people desire bright and shiny white teeth. We provide a reliable answer to your discolored and stained teeth. From ready to use bleaching kits to extensive treatments for both intrinsic and extrinsic stains we serve you an elite teeth whitening and smile brightening experience.
Inlays and outlays
If you consider the restorative treatments of crowns and implants painful and aggressive, inlays and onlays are a solution. This treatment is more conservative in preserving healthy tooth structure while giving the tooth strength. We provide inlays into the cusps or outlays on to the cusps. We can customize porcelain inlays.
A missing tooth can create a lot of instability in the mouth. A missing tooth can affect the bite, bones, gums, and can shift or crowd teeth. With the support of teeth, we restore the gaps with bridges. This will prolong longevity and feel natural and comfortable.
People can lose teeth in accidents or naturally due to decay or disease. With our complete high-end techniques, we restore your smile by dentures where we work closely with the lab. From partial through complete and removable to implant dentures we have a sophisticated solution at hand.
We recommend natural looking, durable, tough, and comforting crowns to improve the appearance of cracked or damaged teeth. Our crowns will please your eyes. We suggest crowns for discolored teeth, as a capping, to restore a root canal, or to repair the damage.
When your tooth gets damaged, broken, chipped, and distorted, we know that you hide your smile. Apart from the veneers and crowns that you rely on we bond teeth. This enhances the life and function of the teeth. It's a painless process which will finish with a resin application, shaping, and polish.
We prioritize your confident and beaming smile. If you have insecurities about your smile, we will come to help. We are diligent at satisfying your esthetic needs in a pleasant experience. We complete the veneers in two visits from evaluation to bonding high-quality porcelain veneers.
