Local Periodontist – Vancouver Dentistry
What is General Dentistry?
General Dentistry is defined as the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment of diseases, disorders and/or conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and/or the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body.
We offer general dentistry, dental exams and treatments for overall dental care at our downtown Vancouver Dental Clinic. We conduct a dental examination to identify how healthy your teeth and gums are and any problem areas within your mouth. We will then discuss the options that are available to you and decide which treatment is most suitable.
All of our procedures may be considered cosmetic in nature; we strive to restore tooth functionality while making the teeth look natural. In the past, dental fillings and other tooth restorations were made of gold, amalgam and other metals – some of which were veneered with porcelain. Now, dental work can be made entirely of porcelain or composite materials that more closely mimic the appearance of natural tooth structure. These tooth colored materials are bonded to the underlying tooth structure with resin adhesives. Unlike silver fillings (amalgams) they are entirely free of mercury.
Dental Hygiene is one easy way to keep your oral health in beautiful shape.
