Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is one of the easiest, fastest, and most minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry treatments. If you have minor cosmetic problems with your teeth – a chip, crack, gap, stain, or other unsightliness – dental bonding is color-matched to your tooth enamel and used to conceal whatever issue is present. Plus, it only takes one dental visit to complete the procedure and usually does not require an anesthetic.

Gum Disease Treatment

It’s not just your teeth that your dentist is looking at when they see you, but your gums too. Any sign of early gum disease, known as gingivitis, needs to be treated right away to prevent the spread of the infection. If you have a severe case of periodontal disease, you could already be suffering extreme discomfort, loose teeth, or even tooth loss.

Gum disease requires the following treatments, depending on the severity of the problem:

  • Laser dentistry: A sophisticated, minimally invasive treatment that destroys bacteria and allows for faster recovery.
  • Scaling and root planing: The common deep cleaning for early infection that removes plaque and prevents more bacteria from growing.
  • Antibiotics: Often administered as a topical treatment like mouthwash or gel to help combat gum disease and your dentist’s other cleaning efforts.
