Dental Cleanings & Exams

Regular dental cleanings in Southlake and exams are fundamental to maintaining good oral health. Even though you may see these as “routine,” these procedures are performed with the utmost care and precision. Our process involves thorough scaling to remove tartar – a hardened form of plaque that can harbor harmful bacteria, followed by polishing to create a smooth surface less susceptible to bacterial attachment. The final step is flossing, allowing our dental hygienist to evaluate the effectiveness of your home dental care routine so we can provide tips and advice. These regular visits are critical for detecting potential problems early, significantly reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease, and maintaining a vibrant smile​​.

Oral Cancer Screening: Early Detection Saves Lives

We employ state-of-the-art VELscope technology for oral cancer screenings. This advanced tool illuminates cancerous and precancerous tissues, allowing for their early detection. Early discovery is crucial in effectively treating oral cancer, significantly improving survival rates. With changes in the demographics of oral cancer patients, screening becomes vital even for individuals without traditional risk factors like tobacco use or advanced age. Drs. Green and Taylor’s expertise ensures that these screenings are thorough, painless, and integrated seamlessly into routine check-ups​​.

Tooth-Colored Fillings & Filling Upgrades

Your smile’s beauty and functionality are our top priorities, which is why we favor tooth-colored fillings. Made from cutting-edge composite materials, these fillings blend flawlessly with your natural teeth, making them virtually invisible. This approach not only beautifies your smile but also maintains the integrity and strength of each tooth. Dr. Green and Dr. Taylor are experts in transforming old metal fillings into these discreet, tooth-colored alternatives. If you’ve experienced discomfort or self-consciousness due to traditional amalgam fillings, our upgrade to ceramic or advanced composites will address these issues, improving your oral health and comfort. This change not only benefits your dental well-being but also aligns with your aesthetic goals, ensuring that your fillings complement the natural beauty of your smile. With us, your dental care is not just a procedure; it’s a personal journey towards a healthier, more confident you.

Laser Gum Treatment: A Modern Approach to Gum Health

Gum health is crucial for overall dental wellness. We use laser gum treatment, a cutting-edge, minimally invasive technique that targets diseased gum tissue while preserving healthy areas. This method reduces recovery time, minimizes discomfort, and lowers the risk of infection compared to traditional gum treatments. Recognizing symptoms like red and swollen gums, bleeding during brushing, bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth is essential for timely intervention. Drs. Green and Taylor’s expertise in laser gum treatment ensures effective care for various stages of gum disease​​.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a versatile and essential aspect of restorative and general dentistry. Drs. Green and Taylor use crowns to repair and enhance teeth that are damaged, decayed, or cosmetically compromised. Modern dental crowns, typically made of high-quality ceramics, provide strength, functionality, and a natural appearance. We use dental crowns in various dental procedures, including augmenting small teeth, supporting dental bridges, protecting a damaged tooth, and completing dental implants. The process of fitting a crown involves preparing the tooth, taking precise impressions, and ensuring a perfect fit for long-lasting durability and aesthetic appeal​​​​​​.
