Dental Services for Fort Worth, TX Families
Although dentists are doctors, the truth is dentists and doctors run their practices quite differently. For example, most doctors nowadays are specialists, which means that you can’t expect one doctor to care for all of your family’s health needs. Dentists, however, are trained in a variety of dental disciplines, so one dentist can address all aspects of your family’s dental health. At Summer Creek Dental, Dr. Jasmine Coleman King and her dedicated staff are ready to care for your general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry needs.
First and foremost, Dr. Coleman King is concerned about the health of your teeth and gums. With this in mind, and in keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Coleman King and her team of dental hygienists and assistants would like to see you and each member of your family twice a years for dental checkups. This routine allows us to analyze your oral health regularly and react quickly to any changes that may be of concern. For example, conditions we typically look for include evidence of TMJ dysfunction, teeth grinding, and even oral cancer. And of course these checkups include a thorough teeth cleaning, an evaluation of your gums and digital x-rays when necessary.
You take good care of your teeth at home with daily brushing and flossing, and we take good care of your teeth when you come to Summer Creek Dentistry for checkups. Nevertheless, there usually comes a time when a restorative dentistry procedure is necessary. Through restorative dentistry we can help you maintain a smile that is functional and beautiful.
One of the most common restorative treatments is a filling, which repairs a tooth that has been damaged by decay. Today fortunately, there are strong composite resin materials that allow Dr. Coleman King to match the color of your existing tooth. Another restorative treatment that makes a dramatic difference in the lives of patients who are missing teeth is a dental implant. These dental wonders consist of a titanium post that is surgically implanted in the bone and a porcelain crown that is attached to the post. Together these components closely mimic a natural tooth.
Hand-in-hand with a smile that is healthy and functional is one that’s beautiful. To help you have that smile, we offer a number of cosmetic treatments. Perhaps your teeth need a brightening boost. In that case, there is teeth whitening. For quick results, we can whiten your teeth with the Venus whitening system from Heraeus Kulzer. If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, then we have take-home whitening kits that come with custom-fitted trays and pre-filled mint bleaching gel.
For teeth that are chipped, cracked, slightly crooked, misshaped or have gaps in between them, you might consider porcelain veneers. This cosmetic treatment conceals your smile imperfections as it creates the beautiful smile you want. Veneers are wafer-thin layers of tooth-colored dental porcelain that Dr. Coleman King adhesively bonds to the teeth in your smile zone.
Invisalign®, as the name suggests, can straighten your teeth almost invisibly. With a series of clear plastic aligners that you wear all day every day—except when you are having a meal or brushing and flossing your teeth—only you and Dr. Coleman King will know that you are having orthodontic treatment. In about one year, you’ll have a straighter and more attractive smile.
