Finding safe and conservative dental care is often a top priority for patients in Social Circle and the surrounding areas. They can find this type of care as well as a welcoming dental team in their hometown at Brookstone Place. Dr. Jones and the team do all they can to ensure every patient will have a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable dental experience. We will explain how we ensure safe and conservative treatments.
Practicing Mercury Safe Dentistry
Dr. Jones has created an office environment that is mercury free. This means he does not provide amalgam fillings, which are composed of about half mercury and other metals. Since amalgam can pose a danger to patients, he keeps it out of his office. Instead, he provides composite resin fillings. The dental material matches the natural teeth and is quite versatile. As a mercury safe dental practice, Dr. Jones has the training to safely remove and dispose of amalgam fillings. He can replace worn down amalgam fillings with composite resin, restoring health and natural beauty to the smile.
Exploring the Most Conservative Treatment
As a biologic and holistic dentist, Dr. Jones is concerned about the effects techniques, procedures, and dental materials can have on the overall body. When it comes to brightening a dull smile, Dr. Jones will recommend the most conservative treatment. He provides teeth whitening treatment that allows the brightness to return to the smile gradually. He chooses this alternative over a power bleaching session that uses strong chemicals that can irritate the gums. He will work with you to attain the smile of your dreams by providing an at-home whitening program. For treatment, Dr. Jones will take impressions of your mouth and use them to customize your whitening trays. Then he couples the trays with a professional grade whitening gel. We will encourage you to wear the trays daily to achieve optimal results. After a few weeks, you can embrace a smile up to eight shades lighter.
Medications such as tetracycline may leave permanent tooth stains. When teeth whitening treatment may not be effective, Dr. Jones will consider dental veneers. He provides veneers that require minimal preparation, depending on the situation. When choosing the most conservative treatment, Dr. Jones considers the overall health of the teeth. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are placed on the surface of the teeth. Porcelain looks like tooth enamel and blends well with the natural tooth color. If there is no tooth preparation necessary, you can walk away with the restorations after a single appointment. In other cases, the veneers may need to be fabricated at a dental laboratory. Once the veneers arrive, you can embrace beautiful results.
These are examples of treatments of which Dr. Jones takes a conservative approach to dental care. To learn more about how Dr. Jones can help you attain a beautiful and healthy smile with the most conservative treatment, call 770-464-1900 to schedule a consultation appointment.
