FULL SERVICE DENTAL CARE FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN
Root Canal (Endodontic Therapy) is the removal of the pulp tissue from the tooth. The pulp tissue refers to the nerve and blood vessels of the tooth. Endodontic Therapy may be necessary to save your natural tooth if the pulp tissue is irreversibly damaged by bacteria associated with decay, very deep fillings, tooth fracture or trauma, or periodontal disease.
If you have experienced loss of your natural teeth from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury, it can often be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Your appearance and your health will benefit from replacing missing teeth. Dentures are made of durable materials resulting in a natural smile and can last for years when cared for properly. Hillcrest Dental Care provides both conventional and immediate placement of dentures at our practice
Periodontal Care: Scaling and Root Planning
Scaling and root planning is the most common and conservative form of treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. Scaling is basically the process of removing dental tartar from the surfaces of the teeth. Root planning is the process of smoothing the root surfaces and removing any infected tooth structure.
Whitening | Bleaching Trays
Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look. The most common type of tooth whitening uses a gel-like whitening solution that is applied directly to the tooth surface. This product contains some form of hydrogen peroxide. We offer bleaching trays for in-home whitening.
Comprehensive Oral Examination and Digital X-Rays
Routine dental exams are a big part of maintaining a healthy smile. At Hillcrest Dental Care, we offer comprehensive dental exams for the entire family. At each exam, we check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other potential problems that require treatment. X-rays of your mouth may also be taken during your dental exam. Digital x-rays produce an image that can be viewed during your visit on our computer screens in each operatory.
Routine cleanings (prophylaxis) are important for any patient who has the desire to keep their teeth forever! The most successful methods of maintaining your oral health care through the use of effective daily oral hygiene including brushing and flossing, as well as regularly scheduled professional cleanings and examinations.
A dental sealant is a plastic coating that is placed on the teeth to form a protective barrier that prevents cavities and decay. Sealants are especially beneficial when placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, which are the most difficult to clean. Dental sealants are most commonly recommended for children; however, some adults may benefit from this preventative measure as well.
There is nothing more beautiful than a natural healthy smile. We can restore your smile to an attractive, functional state with crowns; tooth colored fillings, and porcelain bridges. We are dedicated to making durable, natural, long lasting restorations.
Patients who need to have cavities filled or metallic fillings replaced can receive tooth-colored fillings. Made of durable ceramic material, natural looking fillings are an attractive and safe alternative to traditional metallic fillings.
At Hillcrest Dental Care, you will find everything you need to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Our practice offers comprehensive general and restorative dentistry performed by highly-trained and experienced dental professionals.
