Available treatments from your dentist in Richmond
You need to come in and see your dentist in Richmond every six months in order to gain full advantage of the tools, equipment and knowledge that we have available to you. A consultation with one of our friendly and compassionate team members isn’t only for when you have a concern that needs to be discussed.
Healthy teeth need to be examined as well, not only because we have special tools that allow us to identify even the earliest signs of decay, but because we can provide your teeth with a good scale and polish, removing debris and buffing away stains.
We can all do better in caring for our teeth. Brushing and flossing twice a day is recommended, but often our toothbrushes can't reach every place they need to and a build-up of plaque cannot be removed with treatments at home.
By working together with you on maintaining an excellent level of oral health care, you can be sure that your teeth can remain healthy and strong for life.
I don’t really like my smile, what can I do?
Thankfully, your dentist in Richmond not only works on preventive and restorative treatments to ensure your mouth is healthy, but provides cosmetic treatments too. Many people don’t like the look of their smile and we can provide them with a series of options designed to whiten, straighten and perfect.
Your dentist in Richmond will be able to provide bespoke advice and solutions for your unique smile, so that you can feel confident and comfortable with sharing it with others again. Whether you need to straighten your teeth, whiten your teeth or replace a missing tooth, we are here to help.
For those people who have quite complex issues or have several concerns, they may find that dental veneers are a great option for a complete smile makeover.
By covering up problem teeth with a thin porcelain shell, bad stains, chips and cracks can be covered and the teeth essentially protected from harm. The veneers can last for several years and need to be replaced afterwards.
Although this is an expensive option, it is fast becoming one of the most popular treatments available. Most celebrities sport veneers and this may be why perfectly straight, even and white teeth are simply becoming the norm.
However, they are a great option for people who do not want to undergo lengthy treatment procedures. If their teeth are slightly misaligned or gapped for instance, they can perfect their smile in as little as a few appointments.
This can also be a solution for individuals who have short teeth or a gummy smile. We are able to shorten the gum line using laser treatment. It takes a confident professional and a steady hand. Both qualities we are proud to have here. Again, veneers can provide an alternative to this issue that people have, laser free, safe and effective.
