At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, Dr. Chong Lee and his team offer a wide selection of services for new and current patients. He provides a range of solutions within the areas of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, ensuring patients have access to treatments under one roof—in turn, avoiding the need for referrals to other dental facilities in the area. Below are just a few of the general dentistry treatments available at our practice for patients to use in achieving and maintaining oral health and wellness:
- Dental cleanings – by undergoing professional cleanings, patients can remove tartar and plaque that develop on the teeth over time and might not have been caught with daily brushing. Our dental hygienists perform dental cleanings when patients arrive for their routine evaluations.
- Examination – a dental examination by our team will allow us to catch any problems within the smile early enough for successful intervention. The examination may include a physical examination and imaging such as x-rays to look for signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, or impacted teeth.
- Fillings – cavities are small holes that can develop in the natural tooth enamel and cause pain and sensitivity. If left unaddressed, they can be large enough to become deep and result in an infection of the tooth. In cases such as this, patients might require root canal therapy or the extraction of a tooth impacted severely by dental decay. Fillings are done with composite resin bonding to match the smile and be as obscure as possible.
- Periodontal care – in addition to cavities, periodontal disease can cause damage to the teeth, gum tissues, and jawbone. With early diagnosis and intervention, this condition can be treated effectively, though late-stage periodontitis requires a lifetime of continued care to manage. Periodontal disease is often treated with deep cleanings, scaling and root planing, and antibiotics.
