Whether it's time for your six-month exam and cleaning or you need dentures or other restoration procedures on your whole mouth, Suncoast Dental in Goodyear is the full-service dentist you need. No matter what services you require, we make your smile our first priority and offer you a gentle touch as we restore or enhance your smile's natural beauty. Listed below are some of the many procedures we offer that are guaranteed to make you smile.
Having biannual checkups is important to maintaining good oral health care. Every time you come in for your six-month dental cleaning and exam, we will take a good look at your teeth and gums, X-ray your teeth to check for tooth decay, and perform an oral cancer check. To finish things off, one of our hygienists will clean your teeth with fluoride. When the dentist comes in, you'll have a further examination of your teeth to get to the root of any discomfort you may feel and make a plan for any future treatment you might need.
Teeth with cavities or that are cracked or broken can be painful and, in the case of front teeth, unsightly. Removing decay and filling the tooth promptly can end your pain and restore your appearance.
Dental Composite Fillings
For top-rated dental restoration services, visit Suncoast Dental in Goodyear. Using durable composite fillings, we can match your new fillings to the color of your teeth so that your filled teeth will look no different from your untreated teeth and function better as well. With many exciting materials available, our dental team will work with you to determine the best composite filling for you.
Structure of Composite Fillings
As with most other fillings, your Suncoast dentist can install composite fillings in a single visit. After numbing your tooth so you will feel no pain during the procedure, the dentist will remove decay, clean and prepare the space for the new composite material, and treat and examine any decay near the nerve of the tooth. When everything looks fine, he will put in the new filling material and then polish and shape it so it blends in with your other teeth.
If your teeth have structural damage or gaps between them, porcelain veneers can restore your smile without surgery. By adding a small piece of durable material on top of the original, your dentist can help you achieve a smile that is white and uniform in appearance. In addition, the veneers he adds will help build a new, healthy, disease-free tooth structure.
Dental Veneers for Your Teeth
Applying veneers is an uncomplicated process that usually takes just two visits to complete. The dentist first removes any decay from the teeth where the veneer will go, takes a custom impression of your tooth, and helps you decide the best shade of tooth color for your new veneer. He will send the impression off to the dental lab where it will be made.
On your second appointment, the dentist will clean your teeth with special cleaning liquids and bond the new veneer to your teeth with a special light. The newly applied veneers will look like your other teeth, only better.
The Veneer Benefit
Besides restoring your beautiful smile, veneers can improve your oral health in several ways:
- Your teeth will have a more uniform appearance
- The veneers are more resistant to stains
- They will be whiter and more even
- They will help build a stronger tooth structure
If you suffer from tooth decay, broken or fractured teeth or would like to cosmetically enhance the look of your teeth, a crown can upgrade your smile. Also known as a cap, a crown covers the whole surface of the tooth and restores the tooth’s size and shape. It also improves the health of teeth that have become decayed, fractured or broken off. Suncoast Dental provides dental restoration services to enhance your smile with crowns.
By adding a crown, Suncoast Dental can improve the appearance of teeth that have become decayed or damaged.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
Porcelain crowns are popular because they are tooth-colored, which makes the new teeth look the same or better than the old ones. Because they are custom-made, they also are the same size and shape as your original teeth, so your smile will look as good as ever. Crowns are meant to last for many years and by properly taking care of them with twice-daily brushing, daily flossing, and regular dental checkups, you will enjoy them far into the future.
If you teeth have become stained or discolored with use or age, teeth whitening can restore them to their white, bright state. At Suncoast Dental, we can help you select a product that will work for you and you can walk out of the office with teeth 1 to 2 shades lighter. Our process is more effective than over-the-counter whitening kits and takes only an hour to complete. After your visit, you will take home a whitening kit so you can continue the process.
Keeping your natural teeth is an important goal of modern dental practice. Root canal allows you to save a decayed or infected tooth from extraction by removing disease tissue from the root, medicating the area and packing it with elastic material before sealing it off. Suncoast Dental can do the procedure and even provide you with a number for emergency services in case a tooth becomes in abscessed from infection.
During your checkups, Suncoast Dental will be on the lookout for signs of gum disease. The first sign is usually gingivitis, characterized by plaque buildup; if not stopped, your gums develop periodontitis, characterized by inflammation, tenderness, and bleeding.
If you develop full periodontitis, existing plaque hardens into calculus, which builds up inside the mouth along with additional plaque. This leads to the formation of deep pockets between the teeth and gums that become filled with pus and bacteria and as a result, the gums continue to become inflamed and painful. The gums recede from the teeth and bone loss can occur.
When you have disorders of the face, jaw, teeth, and gum, you may need oral surgery to fix the problem. For both cosmetic and therapeutic reasons, your Suncoast Dental professional will treat the problem in the process, restore your mouth to its proper functioning and your smile to its beautiful best.
When saving your decayed, broken, or impacted teeth is not an option, your Suncoast Dental professional will extract them prevent further dental problems. The process is safe and quick.
Reconstructing your face, teeth, mouth, or jaw after an accident or other conditions that have distorted them can require maxillofacial surgery in order to improve appearance and prevent infection and permanent damage. Your Suncoast Dental professional will often suggest this after serious dental injury, long-term denture wearing, jaw misalignment and improper bite, chronic pain, and oral defects or dysfunction.
