Dr. Steven White of White Smile Cosmetic & Family Dentistry.
If you believe the advertising today, one would think there are only a few places you can go to get certain dental services. The fact is, many “general practice” or “family practice” dental offices offer a variety of services that enable most families to have all their dental needs taken care of at one location.
Dr. Steve White at White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry has been treating patients of all ages for over 30 years and offers a full range of services. Dr. White and his team of friendly and caring professionals are trained to deliver the most up-to-date treatment in a clean and inviting environment.
Patients of different ages present challenges unique to their age group. Most children are the best dental patients a dentist could hope for. The goal is to make their appointments fun and non-threatening. Kids are taught proper homecare routines, and the goal of treatment is to monitor growth and maintain the baby teeth until the permanent/adult teeth come in. Teenagers have to be helped to learn how to take care of their new adult teeth and given the best opportunity at keeping their teeth for the rest of their lives. This is achieved with preventive visits, orthodontics (braces), and hopefully, a minimum of cavities/decay and fillings.
As teenagers leave home and enter adulthood, a big challenge for many is keeping regular appointments for cleanings and check-ups. At the same time in their life, gum disease becomes the major challenge. Tooth decay (cavities) and maintaining old fillings is still a concern; however, gum disease starts to become more of an issue when patients get in their 20s and continues throughout life. Gum disease is the number one reason that adults lose their teeth. It is important to keep up with good homecare routines, and most important, to continue cleanings and checkups with your dentist, to insure that healthy teeth and gums are maintained.
In adulthood and on in to the golden years, the goal remains maintaining healthy gums and existing dental work. The challenges are dealing with the effects of other health issues and side effects of surgeries and medications, as well as natural wear and tear of teeth. Tooth loss and replacing teeth becomes a major issue for older adults. The popularity of implants, with their many uses, from supporting individual crowns to groups of false teeth, as well as supporting complete dentures, they are an exciting and rewarding phase of dentistry for Dr. White and his team.
For all your family’s dental care in a state-of-the-art facility, consider joining Dr. White’s professional, friendly and caring team in pursuit of optimum dental health. New patients are welcome and most insurance is accepted. Not having traditional dental insurance doesn’t have to mean you can’t afford regular dental care. Our in-office membership plan, called Quality Dental Plan, enables you to receive regular checkups and cleanings, with x-rays, for 1/3 off normal fees, and even more off for other family members. If no further treatment is needed, there is no more cost; unlike traditional dental insurance where your monthly premiums just keep on being paid out. Any further treatment required is provided at a greatly reduced fee. We are happy to give you more details about this cost saving plan and invite your calls.
