Why is Seeing a General Dentist Twice a Year so Important?

Routine exams twice a year are a way to help ensure you maintain proper oral health through preventative care, such as a teeth cleaning, which helps prevent gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Additionally, our dentist can spot decay with x-rays and fill the cavity before it becomes large and begins to hurt.

Do General Dentists Treat Families?

Yes, a general dentist treats patients of all ages, providing the care that they need to have bright, healthy smiles.

General Dentistry Services

Our general dentist in Fairfax is experienced in the following services:

  • Tooth Repair & Replacement – Repairing teeth or substituting missing teeth with natural looking replacements is part of the general dentistry services that we offer to restore our patient’s smile and give their self-confidence a boost.
  • Crowns – Crowns cap teeth that are discolored or weakened from a large cavity or a root canal procedure.
  • Porcelain Crowns – Life-like porcelain crowns are durable to ensure that you have a long-lasting beautiful smile.
  • Dental Bonding – A cosmetic procedure where a chipped or discolored tooth is covered in composite resin, which our dentist shapes to restore your tooth’s original appearance.
  • Dental Bridges – If you’re missing a tooth, a bridge is a low maintenance restoration that can last up to 10 years with the proper care.
  • Fillings – Our dentist uses fillings to strengthen your remaining tooth structure after he or she removes decay.
  • Composite Fillings – Composite fillings, also called white fillings, are an affordable alternative to porcelain or metal fillings.
  • Porcelain Fillings – Porcelain fillings very closely match the look of a natural tooth, plus they last longer than composite fillings.
  • Laser Dentistry – Most of our patients prefer that our dentist uses a laser instead of a drill to fill a cavity, especially patients who experience dental anxiety.
  • Laughing Gas – This safe, calming gas is administered through a mask that you wear during the dental procedure to help reduce pain and anxiety.
  • Sealants – Sealants are a thin coating painted on back teeth to seal the pits and grooves in molars so bacteria cannot attach to the teeth and cause cavities.

How Many Times a Year Should I Visit a Dentist General Practice?

We recommend twice a year preventative check-ups to ensure your overall oral health, although, our dentist may wish to see you more often if you are a high-risk case. Call us today to schedule your six-month exam today.

What Does it Cost to See a General Dentist Near Me?

When you call for an appointment, we can give you an estimated cost for your services. Please let us know if you have dental insurance, which may cover some of or our entire fee.

How Does a General Dentist Clean Teeth?

Typically, a dental hygienist will clean your teeth by scraping off accumulated plaque. You’ll have your teeth professionally brushed and flossed as well. You will leave our office with clean, sparkling teeth and fresh breath.

How Long Does the Average Visit Last at a General Dental Office?

We usually schedule 45 to 60 minutes for routine appointments, giving our dentist time to answer all of your questions. If you are having a procedure done, we can give you an estimate of how long it usually takes when you call to schedule your appointment.
