Cleaning and prevention
Cleaning and prevention try to detect oral health problems, like cavities and gum disease, when they’re easiest to treat. The team recommends scheduling preventive checkups at least twice a year, even if your mouth feels healthy.
Tooth replacement, also known as restorative dentistry, uses prosthetics, like crowns, bridges, or dental implants to replace or repair missing or damaged teeth. Dental restorations aren’t as tough as your natural teeth, but with proper care, they often last between 12 and 15 years.*
Orthodontics is a dental subspecialty that treats alignment problems affecting the teeth and/or jaw. The team offers orthodontic treatment to children, adults, and teens. Depending on your age and goals, they might prescribe metal braces or removable orthodontic aligners.
Cosmetic dentistry uses restorations and/or whitening treatments to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth or smile. The team offers several types of cosmetic treatment, including veneers, teeth whitening, and cosmetic bonding.
Sealants are thin plastic coverings that your child’s dentist applies to the chewing surfaces of their molars. They prevent harmful bacteria from building up inside the grooves of the teeth, reducing the risk of cavities.
Most family dentistry services are covered by insurance, but every policy is different. If you have questions about what your company does or doesn’t cover, contact your insurance provider before making an appointment at Addie Chang, DMD.
