Your teeth are prone to various problems such as cavities, staining, chipping, cracking, fractures, and others. General dentistry involves taking routine care of your teeth and performing services such as cavity fillings, teeth cleaning, sealants, etc.
When you visit our practice, we start by examining your teeth. We use X-rays to determine the health of your teeth and gums. On diagnosing any problem, we perform a suitable procedure to treat it and also discuss its after-care.

What are the General Dentistry Procedures?
It is one of the most common reasons many patients visit our dental practice. Under professional teeth cleaning, we remove the build-up of plaque, tartar, and other substances from the surface of your teeth and gums. It prevents tooth decay, gum decay, and infection.
Your teeth get stained because of many reasons such as poor oral care, consumption of acidic foods and beverages, smoking, etc. Professional teeth whitening is performed to retain the natural color of your teeth by removing such stains. Visit us twice a year for this procedure.
We perform dental fillings if you have cavities. Under the procedure, we remove the decay or infection from your teeth and then fill it with the material of your choice. Dental fillings are made in various materials such as gold, silver, amalgam, composite resin, and porcelain.
Veneers may be used for various purposes like chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, or extremely discolored teeth. They are thin, wafer-like shells that we place on the front surface of your teeth. This dental restoration may last for 10-12 years if you maintain them properly.
If your cavity is too big for a filling, we may restore it using a dental crown. We also perform this procedure if the top part of your teeth is decayed. The treatment is less invasive. We take the impressions of your teeth and then send them to a dental lab for the creation of crowns. They are also used to restore chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.
