Family Dentistry vs. Traditional Care
If your family has little ones, teenagers, and adults — you might have heard the term “family dentistry.” It describes a dental practice that addresses oral health at all stages of life. Here at Cunning Dental, we specialize in a spectrum of dental services, from routine teeth cleanings and dental fillings to more intricate procedures such as dental implants, crowns and bridges, and so forth.
As your general dentists, we can accommodate your whole family and are considered your primary care dentists. Our dental experts have training and experience in several specialized areas, such as orthodontics, endodontics, and cosmetic dentistry.
What makes family dentists appealing is how we offer the convenience of a “one-stop” solution for all dental care needs, whereas other practices are built around one specialty.
Your Family’s Options for Perfect Teeth and Gums
Our patients receive customized care and treatment depending on their individual needs, based on meticulous oral exams and assessments. The dental services we provide include but are not limited to:
- Dental Cleaning in CA
Teeth cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, is the removal of plaque and tartar that may develop even with consistent brushing and flossing, especially in the nooks and crannies of teeth.
- Bonding in CA
Dental bonding is a cost-effective treatment that repairs decayed, chipped or fractured teeth. It also reduces or closes spaces between teeth, among other benefits.
- Tooth Extraction in CA
Often the last resort in dentistry, a severely damaged tooth may need to be pulled from the alveolar bone. Some dental procedures, like orthodontic treatment, may require the removal of permanent teeth before starting braces.
- Traditional and Invisible Braces in CA
Braces are dental devices that dentists use to straighten teeth and correct bite-related problems. Braces align teeth by exerting a steady pressure on the teeth.
- Invisalign in CA
Invisalign involves wearing a series of custom-made plastic aligners to straighten teeth. This alternative to metal braces is interchanged every couple of weeks for a period of six to eighteen months depending on the extent of misaligned teeth.
- Dentures in CA
Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace missing teeth. The two types of dentures are full and partial.
- Crowns and Caps in CA
A dental crown or cap covers a decayed, damaged, badly stained, or oddly-shaped tooth.
- Dental Bridges in CA
Bridges are artificial teeth anchored in place by surrounding teeth. The bridge comprises two crowns on the anchoring teeth, along with the connected tooth in the center.
- Dental Implants in CA
Implant dentistry is among our most successful procedures. Dental implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth, which appear and function like natural teeth.
- Teeth in 1 Day
Teeth in One Day replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth with as few as four dental implants. The revolutionary procedure gives patients a new smile that look and feel natural in just one day.
- Tooth Whitening in CA
While teeth naturally darken with age, staining may result from certain foods and beverages, such as coffee, wine, and tea. Smoking and trauma to a tooth are also known causes of discoloration. Teeth whitening at Cunning Dental can address these issues.
- Non-Metal Fillings in CA
White fillings are cosmetically designed to match your natural tooth. They are safer and more esthetic than metal-based fillings, and they are healthier for your mouth and body.
- Periodontal Dentistry in CA
Periodontal or gum disease is a common oral infection that can lead to gum and tooth loss. Cunning Dental offers preventive methods, diagnosis, and treatment of all stages of gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis.
- Root Canal Treatment in CA
Patients need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of teeth. Root canal therapy is a straightforward procedure to alleviate dental pain and save teeth.
- Smile Makeover in CA
A smile makeover is a process of enhancing the appearance of teeth through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as composite bonding, dental implants, teeth whitening, and more.
- Full Mouth Reconstruction in CA
As the name implies, a full mouth reconstruction rebuilds and/or replaces all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth to improve their function, esthetics, and overall health.
- Sleep Apnea Treatment in CA
Cunning Dental Group offers safe treatment options for sleep apnea. This potentially serious sleep disorder occurs when breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep.
- Emergency Dental Care in CA
Our general dentists carry out emergency dental treatments to provide relief of acute pain or swelling, as well as the treatment of trauma that has affected teeth.
