Preventive and General Dentistry

A great smile requires a commitment from you. Having a good preventive dentistry routine and maintaining necessary general dentistry care are the best ways to keep your smile looking and feeling great.

At Floresta Plaza Dental, we help our patients develop an effective preventive care routine so that they can avoid many of the dental problems that arise from even unintentional neglect.

Preventive Dentistry for All Ages

When you have regular dental exams, professional dental cleanings, and routine x-rays, you make it easier to identify any dental problems you may have early on – when we can treat them with simple and more conservative treatments.

Every family is different! If you or your family have a history of decay, we offer fluoride treatments and dental sealants as extra protection against cavities. Fluoride treatments help keep the protective enamel that covers your teeth strong. Dental sealants are a barrier between bacteria, food, and your teeth.

An often overlooked form of preventive dentistry is an athletic mouthguard. If you or your kids participate in sports, an athletic mouthguard can protect your smile from the hits you might take while you are having fun.

General Dentistry to Keep Your Family Healthy

Most of us will need some help maintaining our smiles at one time or another. Few people make it to adulthood without the need for a filling or crown. The goal of both Dr. Ken Torres and Dr. Allea Paras Torres is that we can catch your dental problems when they are small so they are less expensive and easier to treat.

We repair teeth using:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bonding
  • Veneers

When your teeth sustain damage, placing the appropriate restoration can protect them and reduce pain and sensitivity. Restorative dentistry also prolongs the life of your natural tooth.

If a tooth needs extraction because of damage or because it cannot be saved with a root canal, we will help complete your smile. We will discuss whether a dental implant, partial denture, fixed dental bridge, or even a complete denture will be best to give you the results you want.

Cosmetic Dentistry

A beautiful smile makes meeting people, laughing, and expressing joy more fun! If you need a little help repairing or improving your smile, we can help with that, too.

  • Teeth whitening
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Tooth-colored restorations
  • Porcelain veneers

At our San Leandro dental office, our dentists design smiles that change lives. You can learn more on our cosmetic dentistry page or come by and see us.
