In Dentistry, everything starts with a routine checkup and cleaning, with just two of these preventive appointments each year, we can protect your oral health and give you a confident smile.
Dental cleanings are an important step in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. While daily brushing and flossing keeps plaque and tartar from building up on the surfaces of teeth, professional cleanings remove build up from places that toothbrushes simply cannot reach, as well as polishes the tooth to remove the stains.
In many cases, when teeth are decayed or broken, the dentist will use filling material to replace the tooth structure lost. In Liberty Dental Clinic we only use composite material, which is a tooth-colored resin and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth, also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth, restore chipped teeth and reshaping disfigured teeth. Composite fillings are invisible, and the dentist can closely match the color of the composite filling to the color of your surrounding natural teeth so that your teeth look naturally perfect.
Composite fillings are a popular choice because of their excellent natural appearance, strength and durability making them the material of choice for posterior (back) teeth and Anterior (front) teeth.
If you have a silver, or mercury fillings you may wish to speak to our dentists about the newer alternatives available and have them replaced with tooth-colored resin or porcelain. Not only will this enhance your smile, but it can be healthier for you since dentists have long been worried about the potential health hazards of old-fashioned mercury fillings.
