We focus on family dentistry in our Orlando, FL dental practice to support healthy, lovely smiles at every age. 

Healthy Smiles Look Better

Puffy, bleeding gums can take away from an otherwise beautiful smile as can visible decay and cracks.

Did you know that we offer treatments for healthy gums? We also use tooth-colored fillings and crowns to blend in rather than take away from your smile. In many cases, simple procedures such as dental bonding and teeth whitening can give your smile the boost that you need to feel motivated to take care of your teeth and gums properly.

Healthy Smiles Smell Better

If you have bad breath that will not go away, it’s probably not the food you are eating. In most cases, chronic bad breath is due to an infection in the gum tissue around your teeth. Most often, gum disease develops because of poor oral hygiene habits and missed dental cleanings. Even if you are a dedicated brusher and flosser, tartar will still form, collect bacteria, and cause an infection. Only your dental hygienist or dentist can remove tartar, which seals to the teeth, irritates the gums, and leads to infection.

The good news is that a specific type of dental cleaning and improved home hygiene usually makes it possible to manage the disease effectively.

Healthy Smiles Add Confidence

We have enough to worry about in life and how we look can have a serious impact on our confidence.

A beautiful smile makes it possible to express your joy, friendship, and confidence without worry. Cosmetic dentistry is part of the comprehensive dental care we provide in our Orlando, FL dental office. Give us a call to book your next appointment.
