Dental Services Provided at The Dentist Place
We offer a wide variety of dental services to meet your oral health care requirements in one convenient location. Our patients can visit us for everything from a simple check-up to relief from a sudden toothache or a more complex restorative procedure such as a custom-made crown. Here is a brief overview of the services we offer at The Dentist Place.
Regular Check-ups and Professional Cleaning
At The Dentist Place, we firmly believe that the best dental care is preventative dental care. Our goal is to help you maintain an effective routine for oral hygiene so that you are able to prevent tooth decay and avoid the cost and effort of dealing with cavities and gum disease. You can safeguard your smile with a visit to The Dentist Place every six months for a professional cleaning and dental exam. Our dental team can remove stubborn plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing simply can't handle as well as identify the warning signs of decay and damage that would normally go unnoticed.
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer can restore the brilliance of your smile. The Zoom! teeth whitening method has a proven track record of dramatically improving the whiteness of your smile by up to six shades in a very short amount of time. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office, or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Are you suffering from a toothache, a lost filling, painful gums, or a damaged tooth? Our dental team at The Dentist Place can identify your particular problem and provide a stress-free treatment with your comfort in mind. Our highly trained technicians, hygienists, and dentists will employ the most up-to-date methods and innovative technology to administer care that is accurate, effective, and affordable. From new fillings to root canals, at The Dentist Place, we ensure that our patients receive the care necessary to enjoy healthy teeth for years to come.
Corrective Dental Services
You may be unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth, but you would like to know more about the options available. We encourage you to call us at 352-596-8988 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures -- from reliably effective and affordable metal braces to the latest innovative orthodontic methods like Invisalign. Invisalign is a wonderful option for working adults because it produces similar results to traditional metal braces, but utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are virtually invisible. You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.
Restorative Dental Care
Regardless of how rigorously you care for your teeth, over time, you may suffer physical trauma that results in weakened, chipped, or missing teeth. These conditions can compound and lead to a bite misalignment, bone degeneration, or even further tooth loss. However, at The Dentist Place we can customize a treatment plan for veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, or dental implants that will restore your smile and promote overall excellent oral health. Restoring your ideal dental structure not only improves your appearance and oral health but also prevents adjacent teeth from shifting and eliminates the discomfort of a misaligned bite.
Innovative Technology for Dental Care
Here at The Dentist Place, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at The Dentist Place we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, gum disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
We are able to reduce the duration of your dental visit by using the iTero Element digital scanner to quickly obtain an extremely high-quality image of your entire dental structure. You are able to see not only the current condition of your teeth but also a before-and-after-simulation of your ideal smile – and this is all done without the discomfort of using dental trays and impression goo to produce a physical model. The iTero Element scanner is non-invasive, convenient, and comfortable for dental imaging while allowing our dentist to deliver a higher level of care to our patients.
A dental crown is a "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A crown might be needed to protect a decayed tooth from more damage, to restore an already broken tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a severely discolored tooth. Crowns offer long-term durability, protection from decay and cracking, and an improved, natural appearance. A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
