We offer a variety of services regarding general dentistry including teeth cleaning, tooth extractions, fillings, dental examinations, and multiple other services.

General Dentistry

A general dentist is the healthcare team member you see for your oral health. He or she is not specialized but can practice in all capacities of dentistry. They diagnose, treat, and manage the overall health of your teeth, including regular cleanings, dental examinations, fillings, extractions, crowns, bridges, veneers, root canals, gum care, and other oral health issues.

Cleanings

Regular cleanings are essential to the health and well-being of your teeth. Not only do regular cleanings give your teeth a shiny look and feel, but they also prevent cavities. The white film that builds up on your teeth is known as plaque and can cause major decay to your teeth. Plaque is acidic and eats away at your enamel causing cavities which can then lead to the need for fillings or extractions. The best way to prevent plaque is by brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing daily, and going to the dentist for dental cleanings twice a year at a minimum. We will help you schedule your cleaning appointment and send you reminders of future follow-up appointments as well.

Dental Examinations

The importance of a regular dental exam is often understated in the busy times in which we live. People resist going to the dentist because their teeth don’t hurt and they have no pain. This is not the only reason you should be going to the dentist. Regular exams can allow the dentist to perform a routine check up on you to look for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, vitamin deficiencies, heart disease, and diabetes. Here at Shine Dental, we perform a comprehensive exam on you at every visit to make sure your oral health is in tip-top condition!

We have a modern office with state of the art digital x-ray services. Speak to our trained dentist and staff and let them review all your options with you. We also have a specialist on staff for any difficult issues that arise.

Fillings

A filling is needed when the dentist has noticed a cavity to one or many of your teeth. Cavities are caused when bacteria in the mouth, and sugar from eaten food, form plaque. This plaque eats away at the tooth enamel causing cavities. Cavities can cause pain, irritation, temperature sensitivity, and toothache. We make sure to check all your teeth thoroughly at every visit to ensure you are cavity free. It is of the utmost importance to brush and floss daily to prevent cavities and subsequent fillings.

We do have sedation available for family members that are anxious about their visit. We will work at your pace to keep you comfortable the entire time, and we will give you the smile you always wanted!

Extractions

A tooth extraction is also known as getting a tooth pulled. There are many reasons why an individual would need to have a tooth or teeth pulled. One reason is due to a tooth that is extremely damaged from decay or trauma and is unable to be repaired. Here at Shine Dental, we do everything we can to allow you to keep your tooth, but in certain circumstances, we do have a pull the occasional tooth.

While waiting to go home after your dental visit, you can wait in comfort in our modern rooms that are equipped with flat-screen televisions. Wi-Fi is also available for your enjoyment.
