Q: What kinds of cosmetic dentistry options do you offer?

We understand that the appearance of your smile is just as important as the health of your teeth and gums. To help your personality and confidence shine through, Countryside Dental offers a wide range of cosmetic services, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, all-porcelain crowns, cosmetic bonding, and more.

Q: Why is treating gum disease so important?

Research has proven a definitive link between untreated periodontal disease and a broad range of systemic health conditions. These include cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, certain types of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and low birth weight. Fortunately, periodontal therapy can dramatically improve the health of your gums, thereby reducing your risk of developing these and other health concerns.

Q: How do I know when it's time to come in for a cleaning and checkup?

The American Dental Association recommends that everyone visit the dentist for a thorough exam and cleaning two times per year, or about once every six months. Following your checkup and hygiene appointment, we'll happily offer you a reminder card to ensure you stay on track with your visits.
