Our team is pleased to provide preventive, restorative and cosmetic care for every person in the family. From childhood through maturity, we’re there for every stage of your dental development.
The purpose of preventive dentistry is to maintain health. Think of preventive care as equivalent to getting the oil changed in your car; everything lasts longer when it’s properly maintained. Regular cleanings, fluoride treatments, daily care and checkups ensure that your mouth and gum tissue are in top shape. This regular schedule of preventive maintenance will help you avoid painful consequences, simply because we’ll catch potential problems in the early stages and remedy them before they become real issues.
Restorative dentistry is basic repair of the mouth. Every day we restore people – just like you – to health by replacing broken or leaking fillings, building crowns and bridges, creating dentures or partials and maintaining implants. Many of these treatments have the added benefit of being cosmetic in nature, in that our restorations are pleasing to the eye. We also make recommendations for and treat the varying stages of gum disease and place braces on children, teens and adults. Dr. LeDuke performs root canal therapy, wisdom tooth extraction and some of the more difficult oral surgeries in our Union City office. The outcome of our extended list of services? Your dental care is convenient and easy to obtain. If you don’t have to travel out of town or pay a specialist’s fees, it’s easier to remain committed to your health.
Cosmetic dentistry is a huge interest for many of our patients, even in a tougher economy.
Modern techniques allow us to
· Drastically lighten tooth color,
· Reconstruct widely spaced or missing teeth, and
· Completely reinvent your smile with porcelain veneers.
Many cosmetic treatment options are choices not covered by insurance. However, for those who have been dissatisfied with their smiles for years, this aspect of dentistry is incredibly exciting. No other type of care offers the same potential to dramatically transform your smile. Please see our “Smile Gallery” page for examples of cosmetic dentistry done in our office.
Another form of cosmetic dentistry is Orthodontic* care. Covered in part by insurance, orthodontic treatment uses varying appliances to move teeth into alignment. If you have crooked teeth, a noticeable under/over bite or trouble chewing, braces may be the best answer for you. Ask our team about the drastic improvements we can make to your smile…with braces.
*Orthodontic services are provided by a general dentist.
