At Smile Sonrisa Dental, we welcome every member of your family to experience the quality care we offer. Just as each Houston dentist for kids is specially trained to meet the unique needs of your little ones, our Houston family dentists cater to the adults in your life who care about their appearance as well as great oral health. Whether you are 19 or 99, we can meet all of your restorative, preventive, and cosmetic dental needs under one roof.
When you make your six-month checkups a priority, you are less likely to need us for lengthy, invasive dental treatments later. Your dental exams are an investment in your future oral health because they allow us to detect and treat problems early in their development when only minor interventions are necessary. Your exam also includes an oral cancer screening, which can help us detect this disease early enough that you are more likely to experience a full cure. Furthermore, your twice-yearly professional teeth cleaning is one of the best ways we can help prevent periodontal disease, which is the main cause of adult tooth loss.
Some people, especially patients who have chronic illnesses or take certain medications, are more vulnerable to oral health problems, even with good preventive care. When periodontal disease develops, we provide gum treatments such as scaling and root planing to prevent the condition from progressing. If injury or decay causes tooth damage, we can restore the functioning and appearance of teeth with fillings and crowns, and missing teeth can easily be replaced with a fixed dental bridge. If your mouth is healthy but you dislike the look of your imperfect teeth, we can give you a smile that radiates confidence with cosmetic dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Oral surgery is necessary when the wisdom teeth do not fully erupt. These third molars often erupt only partially or not at all, staying trapped in the bone and causing pain and inflammation. Because wisdom teeth have long roots and often grow at an angle, they can also cause damage to the roots of adjacent teeth. Our oral surgeon can safely remove these unnecessary teeth to alleviate discomfort and preserve the health of neighboring teeth.
You know that straight teeth are beautiful, but you may not be aware that they are also healthier than crooked teeth because they are easier to keep clean. Our Houston orthodontists are seeing more adult patients than ever before, and we can provide you with comfortable, discreet appliances that help you maintain your confidence throughout the treatment process.
From checkups to veneers, each Houston dentist has your every oral health need covered. Smile Sonrisa Dental welcomes all the adults and children in your family, so contact our friendly office staff today to schedule consultations for your loved ones.
