Comprehensive Preventative Care
Everyone who enjoys excellent dental health pays close attention to prevention and maintains a regular preventative routine. The best prevention starts with professional cleanings and exams. Our hygienists and Dr. Caselle work together to monitor and maintain your healthy smile.
Dental exams and digital x-rays help us to support your dental health through early diagnosis and treatment. If you maintain your regular visits, we will be able to catch any problems early, before they progress.
Reliable Preventative Treatments
Preventative treatments like dental sealants and fluoride treatments also help to keep our patients healthy.
Dental sealants are clear coatings we apply to back teeth to protect them from decay. Sealants are more often used with children but can benefit patients at any age, especially if you are prone to getting decay in your back teeth.
Fluoride treatments help to prevent tooth decay. Some cities do not have adequate fluoride in their water, and additional treatments can provide benefits. Did you know that fluoride also helps with tooth sensitivity? If you are an adult who wants to whiten your teeth but experiences tooth sensitivity, a fluoride treatment may help.
Comfortable and Attractive Dental Restorations
When problems such as decay or fractures occur, we can restore the health of your teeth using high-quality dental restorations such as fillings and crowns.
At Smile Life Dental, we no longer use silver mercury material to fill teeth due to health, environmental, and esthetic concerns. Instead, we use composite resin filling material because we can bond it to your teeth, allowing for conservative preparations where we remove less healthy tooth structure. Composite is tooth-colored, versatile, and durable. This means smaller, more natural looking fillings than amalgam (mercury) fillings. We cure the composite material with a special light then shape and polish it to match the rest of your tooth, resulting in a natural, undetectable restoration.
We create beautiful custom dental crowns for our patients in one day using CEREC technology. Our patients love this convenient service that saves them time, money, and unnecessary temporary crowns.
