If you have a need, we try to take care of those needs the best, the easiest, and the least expensively way we can. Sometimes dentistry does get to be expensive, but we do our best to minimize that and work with our patients, so that everything is affordable. The dentistry I do, does tend to have a cosmetic aspect to it. We try not to do ugly dentistry, especially in today’s world of having great materials and great procedures. It’s easy to offer things that do look good.
For instance, I haven’t done a silver amalgam filling in over 25 years. I’ve got on board with the bonded composite resins, the tooth colored fillings, the white fillings, however you want to say it. I think that they’re far superior as far as preserving tooth structure and preserving the strength of tooth structures.
We work with all kinds of crowns, we have different crowns for different situations, whatever is the best for the patient. We do as much preventive dentistry as we possibly can. We welcome our patients from 2-92, and if you’re 93, you’re still welcome. I’m not a pediatric dentist, but we love having families, we love being able to keep patients and get patients on the right track. In my office, I do what I can do, the best I can do it for my patients and their needs.
Why do I need a dental cleaning?
Even if you brush your teeth twice daily and floss regularly, you might notice your mouth begins to feel less fresh over time. Our friendly dental hygienists have the tools necessary to reach and remove all the hard-to-get plaque that can build up on and between your teeth between visits.
Why do I need a dental exam?
You know that old saying, “The best defense is a good offense”? Dental cleanings and dental exams are your smile’s offense against damage. Regular dental cleanings and other preventive treatments help maintain the health of your teeth and can prevent the need for more costly procedures.
Dental exams can show Dr. Anderson any oral health issues you might have. We screen for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and the need for restorative treatment. At your exam, we might take X-rays or treat your teeth with fluoride as a part of our comprehensive look at your mouth.
What if I need more than routine care?
If you’re in pain or dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, you might need more than general dentistry. The same dentist you trust for your routine care is the same dentist you can call when you need more extensive treatment. Virginia Beach, VA dentist Dr. Anderson also specializes in cosmetic dentistry and restorative procedures.
