Whether it's the color, shape, or condition of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry has the potential to give you the smile you've always wanted. Dr. Gomez offers a range of cosmetic options that will give you a smile to be proud of.
You may be suffering from a dental infection. An endodontic procedure might be a good option to relieve your discomfort and get your teeth back in working condition. Dr. Gomez offers the following endodontic procedures with that goal in mind and prioritizes saving your natural teeth whenever possible. However, not every infection can be corrected with endodontics, and a dental extraction may be necessary.
Keeping your smile beautiful for life is a long-term commitment starting in childhood. From twice daily brushing, flossing, maintaining a diet low in sugar, and visiting the dentist twice a year, there are many ways in which you can maximize your oral health. While at Gomez Dental, you can expect a thorough dental cleaning, discussion of diet and oral hygiene routine, and an oral cancer screening. Together with Dr. Gomez, we can keep your teeth in tip-top condition so you can smile easy.
Even with good oral hygiene, problems can happen.
Don't worry. We have a few tricks up our sleeve.
Sealants are a white coating applied to the pits and fissures of the teeth as an extra measure to help prevent dental decay. And good news, this quick procedure is covered by most insurances.
If you do happen to develop a cavity, Dr. Gomez has you covered with tooth-colored fillings. No more discoloration or discomfort from the metal fillings of the past!
During your appointment, Dr. Gomez will let you know if he sees signs of gum or periodontal disease and what that means for you. Tackling these conditions early is the best way to manage them and keep you healthy.
Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can cause headaches, jaw pain, and moderate to severe tooth damage. For some people, this occurs while sleeping or working out. If you or someone you love thinks you may be grinding you teeth, Dr. Gomez can design a custom night-guard to keep your teeth safe.
Whether it's pee-wee football or the NFL, unexpected dental injuries can happen to all kinds of athletes at practice, during a game, or anywhere in between. If you or your child plays a sport, Dr. Gomez is happy to discuss the benefits of a custom fit mouth guard with you. You will play your best when you are not worried about damaging your teeth.
While Dr. Gomez prioritizes saving your natural teeth, this is not always possible. In cases of severe dental injury, advanced decay, supernumerary teeth, or problematic wisdom teeth, removing the tooth may be the best option. At Gomez Dental, we want you to understand all your choices, and when extraction of the tooth is deemed necessary, Dr. Gomez will work to minimize your discomfort and get you on the road to a quick recovery.
By teaching your children proper oral hygieneearly in life, you are helping ensure they have good dental habits and beautiful smiles for life. We understand some children are anxious to visit the dentist, and Gomez Dental offers a variety of services to help your children feel comfortable and confident when visiting our office. Dr. Gomez loves working with children and is happy to discuss proper dental care and oral hygiene with your children no matter their ages.
If you are uncomfortable with your "gummy smile", crown lengthening can surgically increase the visual length of your teeth to give you the smile you've always wanted.
Similar to crown lengthening, gingivectomy, or gingival sculpting, helps reveal more of your natural tooth by removing excess gum tissue.
In patients with advanced gum or periodontal disease, a deep cleaning helps restore your mouth to its healthiest by removing build up of dental calculus around and under the gum tissue.
When one or more teeth need replaced, a bridge can be custom-designed to span this gap between your natural teeth.
When large sections of the tooth have been damaged, a crown may be necessary to retain proper function.
From sealants and fillings to various cosmetic uses, dental bonding uses adhesives cured by light to keep you healthy and smiling.
Temporaries provide you with protection, comfort, and aesthetics while you wait for your dental work to be completed.
If you have recently suffered a tooth injury, it is vital that you see a dentist as soon as possible. Tooth injury can lead to infection, and if it advances too far, a root canal may no longer be feasible leaving extraction as your only option. In cases when a tooth is knocked out, receiving dental care within two hours gives the best chance of saving the tooth. Dr. Gomez sees emergency cases and will evaluate the type of injury and discuss your options with you. If the injury was sports-induced, you may want to talk to Dr. Gomez about a fitting for a protective mouth guard to prevent future dental trauma.
