What services are offered by your dentist in Irvine, CA? Dr. Greg Schinnerer and his dedicated staff deliver a wide range of preventive, restorative and cosmetic treatments to protect your oral health. With everything from professional cleanings and comprehensive check-ups to teeth whitening, dental implants and emergency care, you and your loved ones can achieve healthy, attractive smiles that last.
How can you prevent dental problems?
The American Dental Association recommends this standard for oral hygiene at home: brush your teeth for two minutes twice daily and floss at least once a day. If you're doing that, great! Dr. Schinnerer commends you, and he supports your efforts with semi-annual cleanings and oral examinations that include:
- Checking for cavities and signs of gum disease
- Assessing for oral cancer
- Looking for problems with restorations such as dental crowns, bridgework or fillings
- Checking dental bite and alignment
Your dentist in Irvine, CA Dr. Schinnerer, also places plastic sealants to protect teeth from cavities and advises fluoride treatments to defend against decay and dental sensitivity. And, these treatments are not just for children. Adult teeth benefit from them, too.
Finally, you and Dr. Schinnerer will discuss a treatment plan that addresses continuing preventive care and restorations, such as fillings or crowns, that you may need. Treatment plans address cosmetic concerns, too--things such as tooth color or that bothersome chipped tooth.
How can you restore dental problems?
Dental caries, or tooth decay, and gum disease are the leading reasons for tooth loss, says the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. Dr. Schinnerer offers restorative procedures to bring your smile back to full health and function.
Restorative treatments include:
- White fillings made from composite resin
- Dental crowns
- Fixed bridgework
- Dental implants
- Scaling and root planing
- Root canal therapy
Can you remake a less than perfect smile?
Bonding, cosmetic contouring, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, Invisalign clear aligners...what do these procedures have in common? They're part of Dr. Schinnerer's cosmetic dentistry skill set. He understands that you may be dissatisfied, or even embarrassed, by how your teeth and gums look.
So he consults with patients on how they'd like to change their smile aesthetics. Then, he makes recommendations appropriate for the individual's age, facial appearance, smile width and other considerations. When patients see the results, they understand why Dr. Schinnerer has received America's Top Dentist Award from the Consumers' Research Council of America several years running!
