Whether your dental needs are a complete exam and cleaning, a full-mouth restoration, or anything in between, we promise to provide you with exceptional care as we enhance the natural beauty of your smile. Below are just some of the many procedures and services we regularly provide to our patients with a gentle touch, and stunning results. Your smile is our first priority, and we'll give you something to smile about.
We offer checkups to help you maintain good oral health care. When you visit Suncoast Dental for your dental teeth cleaning and biannual checkup, we'll examine your teeth and gums, give your mouth an oral cancer screening and take X-rays to check for tooth decay. A hygienist will also clean your teeth with fluoride.
After your cleaning, the dentist will check for any dental issues or discomfort you may be experiencing. If other dental services or procedures are necessary, we'll set a plan for further treatment.
Do you have a cracked, broken tooth or cavity that has been giving you trouble? Dental health issues including chipped or decayed front teeth can be especially hard to deal with. Not only can the problem be painful, but also unsightly and difficult to hide.
Dental Composite Fillings
Suncoast Dental provides top-rate dental restoration services. We offer composite fillings that will match the color of your existing teeth so that after treatment, you'll never even notice the difference! Patients can discuss with the dentist which composite filling material will work best for them. Composite fillings are a durable material and will give you a lasting solution for many years to come.
Structure of Composite Fillings
This restoration procedure only takes one appointment! First, the dentist will numb the tooth so you won't feel anything, and then the decay will be removed. Next, the empty space will be completely cleaned and prepared for the filling material. If you have any decay near the tooth's nerve, we'll also apply a special medication for added protection. Finally, the filling material will be added, shaped and polished to restore your tooth to its original size and shape.
A wonderful option for enhancing the look of your smile, veneers offer a non-surgical way to upgrade teeth that have structural damage, close uneven spaces in the mouth or help to create a white, uniformed looking smile. Veneers also create a new tooth structure that is healthy and disease-free.
Dental Veneers for Your Teeth
Little complication is involved in applying veneers, and it only takes two visits to finish the entire procedure. A veneer is a thin piece of durable material that is affixed to the original tooth after the damaged part is removed. The custom-made porcelain material is created in a professional dental lab and will fit your mouth and look just like your other teeth. To create the perfect veneer for you, we'll take a custom impression of your tooth. You and the dentist will also choose the shade of tooth color that best complements your smile.
Upon receiving the tooth molding from the lab, we'll clean your teeth with special cleaning liquids and bond the veneer to your tooth with a special light.
The Veneer Benefit
In addition to improving your oral health care, veneers offer a variety of other benefits, including:
- Stain Resistance
- Whiter Teeth
- A Stronger Tooth Structure
If you suffer from tooth decay, broken or fractured teeth or would like to cosmetically enhance the look of your teeth, a crown can upgrade your smile. Also known as a cap, a crown covers the whole surface of the tooth and restores the tooth's size and shape. It also improves the health of teeth that have become decayed, fractured or broken off. Suncoast Dental provides dental restoration services to enhance your smile with crowns.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
Patients tend to choose porcelain crowns when having restoration work completed because the material is tooth-colored. They're also custom-made to match the size and shape of other teeth so your smile will look just right. With proper oral hygiene care and maintenance, including twice-daily brushing and daily flossing, along with regular dental checkups, your crowns will last for years to come.
Do you want whiter, brighter teeth but aren't sure where to start or which product will really work? At Suncoast Dental, we offer affordable in-office teeth whitening that only takes one hour to complete! You'll see your smile become 1 to 2 shades lighter in just one visit, and we'll give you a take-home whitening tray to continue the process!
A severely infected or decayed tooth may require a root canal to save the tooth from having to be extracted. Suncoast Dental provides our patients with emergency root canal services and walk-in appointments when a tooth has become abscessed due to infection.
As a part of your regular dental exam at Suncoast Dental, we'll check for signs of periodontitis, also known as periodontal or gum disease. Signs your gums have become diseased can include inflammation, tenderness and bleeding. Gums in the first stage of periodontal disease have signs of gingivitis, which includes plaque and its by-products. This stage can also include the same symptoms as periodontitis.
Once a patient's mouth has developed full periodontitis, plaque begins hardening into calculus. The plaque and calculus build inside the mouth, causing the gums to recede away from the teeth. As a result, deep pockets are formed between the teeth and gums, causing the pockets to fill with pus and bacteria. The gums then bleed very easily and become extremely inflamed and irritated. Because the space is too high from the gums, bone loss can also occur.
Suncoast Dental diagnoses and treats facial, jaw, teeth and gum disorders. Our dental surgeries manage and correct a variety of cosmetic and dental health problems including oral disease, injury and defects. We restore beautiful smiles and reconstruct mouths to function properly.
Teeth that are severely decayed, broken or impacted may need to be surgically removed. Tooth extraction is a safe procedure that prevents long-term dental problems.
We perform maxillofacial surgeries for facial, teeth, mouth and jaw reconstruction. Reconstructive and emergency surgical procedures prevent infection and permanent damage and can improve facial appearances. Maxillofacial surgery is typically the treatment option for serious dental injury, jaw misalignment and improper bite, long-term denture wearing, chronic pain and oral defects or dysfunction.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Suncoast Dental performs a variety of oral surgeries that include wisdom teeth evaluation and removal. Our trained and friendly staff uses modern equipment and safe aesthetic techniques in a comfortable environment.
