General and Preventive Care

General dentists act as your primary care dental provider for most of your basic dental needs, such as routine check-ups, oral health screenings and cleanings.

They provide prompt treatment for dental trauma, such as broken, missing or loosened teeth, and can refer you to a specialist as needed.

General dentists can also perform cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, or create mouth guards to protect your teeth during athletic activities.

Services Include

  • Hygiene services (teeth cleaning)
  • Restorative care (fillings)
  • Tooth-colored restorations and tooth whitening
  • Crowns
  • Fixed partial dentures (bridges)
  • Athletic mouth guards
