Our Fremont, CA dental practice offers a wide range of dentistry services, including oral exams, tooth-colored fillings and porcelain onlays to help you maintain a proper dental health.
DR. GLENN MCCORMICK: We do offer a lot of high-end cosmetic services, but the general dentistry is the bread and butter of any practice and thatâ€™s what we do to maintain peopleâ€™s health.
General dentistry is what we do on a day-to-day basis to help people fix their broken teeth, to fill cavities. We did use tooth-colored fillings in the past. Several amalgam fillings have been used, but we stopped doing those about 15 years ago. And the new materials are much better. They look better, look like teeth when you get done.
Itâ€™s important to have regular checkups to evaluate the tissues, the gums, oral cancer screenings. The small cavities that form can be filled before they get large. Teeth that break can be taken care of with individual crowns before they need to have either root canals or extraction, so regular dental checkups are very important to maintain or to keep things from getting worse. So itâ€™s important that people realize that if they come on a regular basis, theyâ€™re going to have easier appointments and theyâ€™ll have more comfortable mouths.
