General dentistry, or family dentistry, is essential to maintaining a healthy smile.
At Hillcrest Dental, we offer all general dentistry services to keep your family’s smiles healthy and comfortable at every stage of life – from your toddler to your most senior family members.
Foundational Preventive Care
Preventive dentistry is an investment in the future of your oral health. By maintaining regular dental visits and following recommended preventive care routines, you can often avoid serious dental conditions in the future.
Preventive dentistry includes:
- Dental exams
- Professional dental cleanings
- Routine digital dental x-rays
- Fluoride treatments
- Nightguards and athletic mouthguards
- Dental sealants
We customize your dental treatment so it meets your needs as your oral health changes.
Reliable Restorative Dentistry
Eating, teeth grinding, and accidents can take a toll on your teeth. Most people will need a restoration at some point during their lives either from damage caused by an accident, decay, or a damaged tooth.
Dr. Namrata Shah creates dental restorations to protect and prolong the life of your teeth.
- Dental bonding
Each restoration is a custom creation created and designed with your needs in mind. Dental fillings to seal your tooth after a cavity, bonding to repair small chips in your teeth, and dental crowns that protect your entire tooth structure can all protect your smile.
Saving your natural teeth, whenever possible, is usually the best thing for your oral health and your smile. It can also save you money since you won't have to worry about the cost of replacing missing teeth that require extractions.
Completing Your Smile
In spite of our best efforts, sometimes extraction is the best way to protect your remaining teeth. Extractions may become necessary due to deep decay, periodontal disease, or trauma. We extract teeth comfortably and provide you with teeth replacement options to restore the appearance and function of your smile.
Fixed dental bridge – Tooth replacement with a dental bridge can keep your remaining teeth from shifting, creating additional oral health conditions. Using two healthy adjacent teeth, we place crowns that suspend an artificial tooth in place, completing your smile.
Dental implants – Dental implants are the most convenient way to replace missing teeth and have a number of health benefits. They help keep your teeth in place and even help you retain bone.
Dentures and partials – For multiple missing teeth, dentures and partial dentures are trusted and reliable methods of replacement. For added stability, we can anchor dentures with dental implants.
