We think you’ll enjoy learning about your oral health from our experienced team.
Prevention is the key to maintaining optimal oral health, and part of that is ensuring you keep up with routine examinations and cleanings. To ensure the best oral health, you and your family should arrange a dental exam at our Springfield, MO, dental office twice a year. During your biannual dental check-up, we will use x-rays to check for potential problems. X-rays provide insight into what’s going on in your mouth beyond what can be seen in a visual examination.
When you visit the dentist regularly, developing problems can be detected early on, when they are easier and less invasive to treat. Two prime examples are tooth decay and gum disease. Since both of these can develop with no symptoms whatsoever, the only way to spot them is to see your dentist on a regular basis.
An additional significant reason to visit the dentist regularly is to screen for oral cancer. This type of cancer is more common than you think, especially in older adults. Early detection means better outcomes.
Many of us were not born with perfectly white, straight smiles, but with today’s cosmetic dentistry options, improving your smile is easier than ever. For a beautiful, natural-looking smile, talk to us about some of the available procedures, including:
- Teeth whitening
- Tooth-colored ceramic crowns or dental caps
- Smile-enhancing veneers
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Cosmetic bonding
- Orthodontics that fit your lifestyle
One of our most popular cosmetic teeth procedures is professional teeth whitening. Whether you have an important reunion or upcoming wedding, no one wants to have dull, yellow teeth in photos. A bright, white smile makes you look younger and healthier. What many of our Springfield, MO dental patients enjoy about this non-invasive dental treatment is that it can melt years off your appearance in under an hour.
Even the most dazzling teeth are hard to enjoy if you can’t see them. Crooked teeth can be healthy and white, but if they hide behind other teeth or shift beyond sight, no one will be able to admire them. If you are tired of living with overlapping teeth, spaces between your teeth, or crowded teeth, you might want to consider Invisalign to help straighten your smile. Invisible aligners are an excellent option for adults who want braces for many reasons. Not only are they removable so that you can enjoy your favorite meals, but they are also unnoticeable.
Whether you simply want a brighter smile or you are looking for a red carpet-style stunner, a consultation will tell you the best path to take for your dream smile.
Your teeth are tough workers, they break down food and aid in speech, as well as provide structure to your facial contours. When teeth are injured and have to be removed, it’s essential to replace them to restore their vital functions.
Dental restorations such as fillings, tooth crowns, bridges, veneers, and cosmetic bonding should look and feel natural. Dr. Preston White and Dr. Shannon White incorporate their skills and experience with high-quality dental restoration materials. Each tooth restoration is designed to blend in beautifully with your existing teeth as well as protect the health of your smile.
Dental restorative work not only enhances your appearance and recovers your ability to eat and speak normally, but it is also essential for your oral health. When a tooth is missing, the root no longer anchors the jawbone. Over time, without an anchor, the jawbone can start to recede and create a sunken appearance. Additionally, the surrounding teeth can shift towards the gap and change the structure of your smile.
There are many options for permanent teeth replacement that your implant dentist at White Smiles Family Dental can provide. At our Springfield, MO dental office, we offer the following tooth restorative treatments:
- Dental implants, including implant-supported dentures
- Dental crowns and bridges
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Cosmetic bonding
- Tooth replacement
Dentistry for Children
Establishing good oral habits like brushing and flossing should start at an early age. Dr. Preston White and Dr. Shannon White completely understand the value of pediatric dentistry. Raising their own four children means they know how to make each visit fun and comfortable.
Children who visit our Springfield children’s dentists for the first time and every time after can sometimes be nervous or shy, our dental team goes above and beyond for our youngest patients, so they look forward to the next visit. We aim to provide dentistry for your entire family, whatever their dental needs may be.
At White Smiles, our mission is to build trust with each child and family member, so they take pride in maintaining good oral health and being active in their own dental journey. As dentists with an emphasis on family and building relationships, we are proud of our family-friendly dental environment.
Root Canal Therapy
Tooth pain can be indicative of a tooth infection and should be addressed immediately. Most patients fear root canal treatment, but in truth, the procedure can relieve you of your pain and possibly save your tooth. When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, your dentist might recommend a root canal. Our Springfield dentists can perform the procedure in-house without having to refer you to an endodontist, a dentist with root canal specialization. If you are suffering from tooth pain, please call our dental office immediately before it gets worse. We can stop the pain quickly and work hard to save your tooth.
