Stunning Cosmetic Transformations
For us here at New Smile Dental, we know your most confident smile looks as beautiful as it feels. That’s why we can’t wait to discuss your options in cosmetic dentistry. Our special approach blends your restorative needs with the cosmetic services that help your smile truly dazzle. From porcelain crowns and bridges to porcelain veneers, Lumineers, professional teeth whitening, and full or partial dentures, we combine restorative treatments with quality aesthetic services to ensure you can always smile your very best.
General Dentistry for Healthy Smiles
More often than not, you and your loved ones will just need the basics -- like a regular appointment every six months, or maybe a minor filling every now and then. Dr. Lopez and the team are as comfortable performing complex treatments as we are meeting your basic dental needs.
Because we know happy, healthy smiles are built on a solid foundation of general and preventive dentistry, we emphasize the importance of two checkups and cleanings annually for patients of all ages. During this regular visit, we will clean plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth and around the gums, and also take careful notes to monitor for the existence of infection or decay.
Dr. Lopez will take a look at any x-rays we’ve captured, and also check in on all existing dental work (like your crowns and fillings). We’ll look out for the warning signs of oral cancer and other serious issues, too. If a problem is located, we’ll put together a treatment plan to help you get the care you need as soon as possible.
Restorative Treatments Rescue Your Teeth
If decay, disease, or injury affects one or more of your teeth, we can come to the rescue with treatments in restorative dentistry. Dentures and partials provide effective tooth replacement, while root canal therapy rescues teeth from extraction. Whatever it is you and your smile need, you can feel confident knowing Dr. Lopez and our team provide comfortable, efficient treatments at every turn.
Periodontal Disease Treatment When You Need It
With proper dental hygiene at home and a visit to New Smile Dental every six months, your teeth and gums should stay clean, healthy, and infection-free. Even still, you may require periodontal therapy at some point. If you exhibit the signs of gum disease -- like bleeding, tender, swollen gums and bad breath -- Dr. Lopez and our team intervene with appropriate treatment.
In the beginning stages, gum disease can be reversed with improved hygiene at home and a couple extra visits to our office. After the condition reaches more advanced stages, we may recommend scaling and root planing. Also called a deep cleaning, it’s a treatment in which one of our skilled hygienists or Dr. Lopez uses special tools to remove plaque and bacteria buildup from above and below the gum line. Scaling and root planing may be carried out over several visits to our office, and is often combined with antibiotic therapy for full healing.
Exciting Deals on Quality Dental Care
We want to make our dentistry to be as affordable as possible -- and that’s why we are pleased to offer hefty discounts whenever possible. Right now, that includes a $99 kids’ special, a $59 new patient special, and $100 off prosthetics! We also offer no interest financing to make paying for your dental care a little easier. Because we firmly believe quality dentistry shouldn’t stretch your family’s budget!
