Family dentistry places a big role in our practice at Bel Drive Dental. Our team takes great pride in providing excellent care for all ages and conditions, from infants to grandparents! Family dentistry is about routine, preventative care to avoid potential problems. A routine appointment typically consists of a professional cleaning including the removal of plaque, an oral cancer screening, and a comprehensive exam. Routine cleanings are recommended at least twice a year to help maintain a healthy, white, and beautiful smile!
Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, Dr. Nielsen will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common than you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include bridges, dental implants, and dentures.
Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly over the past few decades thanks to advancements in technology and technique. Cutting-edge equipment allows us to improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of an unsightly tooth. The cosmetic services we provide include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, dental sealants, and dental veneers & bonding. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common procedures we perform due to its effectiveness. We may recommend a porcelain crown for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. The same is true for dental veneers. Both restorations are fabricated using porcelain because of its unmatched aesthetic value.
Knowing what to do during a dental emergency can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth. If you are having severe pain, knocked out a tooth, or possibly broke or fractured a tooth, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. If your tooth is re-implanted within the hour, the chances are strong that it will reattach to the socket. Dr. Nielsen and Dr. O'Brien always leave time open for emergency appointments. A chipped tooth, however, may not necessarily constitute a dental emergency.
