What Are Comprehensive Dental Services?
With our comprehensive dental services, you can get all the dental services you need in one convenient location. Whether you need root canal therapy or dental implant placement, our San Luis Obispo dentists can get you what you need, usually without having to refer you out of office. Our comprehensive dental services can help you save time and money, while resulting in a much better dental experience:
Our Comprehensive Dental Services
Composite fillings are discreet alternatives to traditional metal fillings that blend in seamlessly with your natural smile. They help prevent problems commonly associated with cavities and tooth damage, allowing for a comfortable, beautiful restoration.
With dental crowns and bridges, our dentists can restore your smile by repairing and replacing teeth. Thanks to CEREC technology, your crown or bridge restoration can be ready in just one day.
Known as the gold standard of tooth-loss solutions, our San Luis Obispo dentists offer custom dental implant solutions to meet your individual needs. Whether you need a single tooth replaced or a full arch, our implant dentists can restore the look, health, and function of your smile.
When you’re dealing with multiple oral health issues, our San Luis Obispo dentists can plan out a comprehensive plan for full mouth restoration. Full mouth restoration involves multiple treatments over a matter of months to address your dental problems, helping you achieve the healthy smile you’ve always wanted.
Get the smile you want in less time with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-shaped shells that can enhance the look of your smile by concealing cosmetic flaws. Our cosmetic dentists simply adhere the veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth and you can start smiling your best immediately afterwards!
Your gums are the foundation of your smile, and a major part of your oral health, and just like your teeth, they’re susceptible to disease. Periodontal or gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, which is why our San Luis Obispo dentists offer preventative and therapeutic gum care to help prevent or treat periodontal disease.
Infection or severe damage doesn’t necessarily mean your tooth needs to be extracted. Instead, our San Luis Obispo dentists may be able to save your smile with root canal therapy. By removing any infected or decayed tooth material, we can restore the full form and function of your smile.
Smile Design is an individualized treatment plan drafted by your dentist to address multiple oral health issues to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Enhancing your dental aesthetics will likely improve your oral health as well, allowing you to feel and look your best.
Professional teeth whitening safely and effectively removes stains and discoloration from your smile. Our cosmetic dentists utilize the Venus White Max system for quick in-office whitening, and the Opalescence system for convenient at-home whitening.
Xylitol is a non-fermentable sugar alternative that the mouth can’t break down into acids, so it can’t contribute to tooth decay. Xylitol also helps inhibit the growth of bacteria that causes plaque and gingivitis, prevents dry mouth, and keeps your blood sugar level. Our San Luis Obispo dentists offer xylitol products to enhance and protect the health of your smile.
