Let’s face it, trips to the dentist can feel a little overwhelming. At Sea Glass Dental Care, we make the entire process easy due to our individualized approach and modern dentistry practices. We provide a wide range of general dentistry services, including preventative care, pediatric dentistry, restorative dentistry, and more! In today’s blog post, we will be discussing the four most common general dentistry services that we perform at our North Palm Beach dental office.

At Sea Glass Dental Care, our passion lies in preventative dental care. Preventative dentistry includes routine oral exams, X-rays, cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments. While you may floss and brush diligently at home, it is sometimes hard to ensure hard-to-reach areas are getting the attention they deserve. Routine teeth cleanings not only remove plaque and bacteria that may have built up over the last few months, but they are also good for keeping an eye on any issues, like cavities, that could cause bigger dental issues. Many of our clients come to see us every six months for their preventative teeth cleanings.
While there are many DIY teeth whitening kits on the market, many of these at-home kits do not produce the pearly white results people want. At Sea Glass Dental Care, we provide our patients with an excellent teeth whitening option called Zoom teeth whitening. No, your teeth will not be on a Zoom call during this procedure, but next time you have a client Zoom meeting, they will be sure to notice your improved whitened smile. Our easy teeth whitening procedure lasts only about an hour, but produces results immediately! Say goodbye to dull, stained, or yellow teeth, and hello to your pearly whites!
Unfortunately, cavities happen. Cavities are a form of tooth decay and are permanently damaged areas of your tooth. Acids from the foods and drinks we consume can wear down our teeth’s natural enamel protectant, leaving behind a painful hole. At Sea Glass Dental Care, we commonly treat cavities with our restorative dental procedure called a filling. Depending on your age, you may have some existing fillings from a previous dentist that are gray and stand out. Fortunately, our expert dentists can offer tooth-colored composite fillings that match the natural color of your teeth’s enamel perfectly! Not only is your tooth decay issue taken care of, but no one would ever know!
Another routine dental procedure we experience is extractions. Many people come to use it for major tooth pain and due to the severity of the tooth decay damage, the existing tooth is unsalvageable. Rather than living with the pain and possible infection, our expert dentists perform an extraction to remove the tooth. Besides severe tooth decay, there are several other reasons to perform a tooth extraction, including:
- Reducing overcrowding in the mouth
- Preventing the spread of infection
- Removing a fractured or chipped tooth
- Alleviating pain a person may be experiencing with a particular tooth
No matter the reason for extraction, you can rest assured knowing that you are in the good hands of our highly-skilled dentists.
At Sea Glass Dental Care, we understand a trip to the dentist may be overwhelming for you. Luckily for you, many of our customers come in needing routine dental care like those listed above. Even an emergency extraction is considered routine in the world of dentistry!
