5-STAR RATED FAMILY DENTISTS IN FORT LAUDERDALE & LIGHTHOUSE POINT, FL
Dental Exams & Oral Cancer Screenings
At Florida Smiles Dental, your routine dental exam with either our Fort Lauderdale family dentist or Lighthouse Point family dentist includes an OralID cancer screening. It is important that when checking for cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease, that your dentist is also checking for less obvious signs of irregularities in the mouth. The cancer screening is simple, quick, and painless – and it is included in your Florida Smiles Dental Exam!
Preventative Teeth Cleanings
Preventative dental care deals with the preservation of healthy teeth and gums, and the prevention of dental caries and oral disease. Florida Smiles Dental specializes in preventative dental cleanings and oral cancer screenings. Florida Smiles Dental follows the ADA recommendations, which recommends you visit a dentist every six months for a professional teeth cleaning (prophylaxis), fluoride treatment, periodontal evaluation, and oral cancer screening. Dental x-rays should be taken when needed.
If you have a cavity that has resulted in extensive tooth decay or chipped a tooth beyond repair, your tooth may require a dental crown. Much like a crown that sits on the head of royalty, a dental crown sits on top of a tooth that is almost no longer salvageable. Dr. Scerbo takes an impression for a dental crown, making necessary modifications for a complete tooth, salvages as much of your existing tooth as he can, and places the dental crown over your salvaged tooth.
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that begin to appear in late adulthood. When these teeth are in their proper place, all is well. But often times, wisdom teeth can become painful when they crowd other teeth, and can lead to other problems. At Florida Smiles Dental we never want you or your child to be in pain. We often recommend oral surgery for wisdom tooth extraction to alleviate the discomfort of impacted wisdom teeth, and to ensure that all the rest of the teeth come in straight. Regular monitoring of the wisdom teeth can keep you or your child from requiring further dental corrections later in life.
If an infection or tooth decay reaches the root of your tooth, you are likely to experience pain as a result. Additionally, a root canal will need to be performed to salvage the tooth. Although the tooth will be dead, the root will be filled with a composite filling and a crown will be placed over the salvaged tooth to retain functionality and bite. Florida Smiles Dental is equipped to perform root canals, so you don’t have to worry about being referred to another dentist in Fort Lauderdale or another dentist in Lighthouse Point, Florida that specializes in root canals.
Who doesn’t want a bright, white smile? Unfortunately, over the years, your teeth can be stained by certain habits, like smoking, and the consumption of certain acidic foods and beverages, such as wine and chocolate. While brushing after every meal can ensure that stain-causing particles are removed from your mouth, residual particles will still remain on your teeth and gums. Over time, you may notice your smile becoming less vibrant, resulting in a less confident smile. Florida Smiles Dental offers a teeth whitening solution to help restore and improve the vibrant beauty of your smile, so you never have to worry again. Ask either our Ft. Lauderdale cosmetic dentist or our Lighthouse Point cosmetic dentist about your teeth whitening options at your initial visit. We work to incorporate the most effective teeth whitening treatments in the least amount of time.
If you are not comfortable with the shape, length, or overall look of your teeth, our Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentists and our Lighthouse Point cosmetic dentists offer an all-in-one dental solution to help you feel confident when you smile. While having straight teeth certainly helps, it isn’t necessarily a fix-all for your perfect smile. Veneers provide the perfect length for your teeth to provide the ideal gum-to-tooth ratio that is often seen in appealing smiles. Additionally, veneers lay over your current teeth, giving you a sparkling white smile!
Florida Smiles Dental has a full-service Ft. Lauderdale dental office and a full-service Lighthouse Point, FL dental office that are state-of-the-art in advanced dentistry. You can feel confident knowing that your perfect smile is only a few visits away when you choose Florida Smiles Dental for your veneers. Call today to speak with a friendly dental team member or schedule a consultation with cosmetic dentist, Dr. Scerbo.
