Personalized Family Dentistry Services

At Smile! Dental Center, we love providing children with a solid foundation for their future smile and oral health by teaching them the importance of proper oral hygiene through gentle dental care. Our goal is to develop a fear-free and positive relationship with toddlers that sets the stage for a lifetime of good oral health. This begin with a thorough oral examination and teeth cleaning. If any issues are detected, we’ll discuss treatment options that can prevent further damage. We provide pediatric dentistry in Gibsonia, PA based on the age and needs of your children, including fillings, sealants, porcelain crowns and customized mouth guards for sports.
Regular professional cleanings are an important aspect of maintaining good oral health. During these visits, our friendly hygienist thoroughly cleans and polishes your teeth, using specialized tools to remove bacteria from parts of your mouth that are hard to reach. We take digital X-rays of your entire mouth to identify potential issues so we can treat them before they become more severe. We also provide oral cancer screenings during hygiene appointments to protect your health.

Although it’s always our goal to save teeth, sometimes this just isn’t possible. If you have a tooth that’s damaged or decayed beyond repair, tooth extraction may be the best option to eliminate tooth pain and sensitivity, and to stop an infection or decay from impacting adjacent teeth. During this procedure, Dr. Foust pulls your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. In addition to a local anesthetic, we offer sedation dentistry if you need it. After extraction, we’ll discuss tooth replacement options that best fit your unique needs and budget, such as a bridge, partial denture or dental implant.

A fractured tooth due to injury, a deep cavity, or issues with a previous filling are reasons why you might need root canal therapy. Once decay progresses through the dentin and reaches your tooth pulp, inflammation can promote bacteria growth and the spread of infection. Sensitivity to hot or cold is often the first sign that you need a root canal procedure. Root canal therapy involves creating an opening in your tooth to remove the infected tissue, then sealing it with a durable material that helps prevent further infection. Because a root canal procedure weakens the structure of your tooth, a dental crown is typically required to restore its strength and appearance.

Although rare, some patients have an allergic reaction to traditional amalgam fillings. Furthermore, this older metal material doesn’t provide esthetically pleasing results. However, composite fillings are the color of natural teeth, so they blend in beautifully and also require less removal of the tooth structure than amalgam. The resin compound bonds well to tooth enamel, making fillings less likely to loosen. The material is versatile enough to fill small to moderate cavities in molars, the front or back of teeth, and even to repair superficial flaws, such as a small chip in a tooth.

Occlusal adjustment is a simple procedure that removes tiny interferences that can cause malocclusion (imperfect positioning of your teeth). These interferences can prevent your jaw from closing in an anatomically correct position. This can occur as teeth develop, after an injury, after getting fillings, crowns or bridges, or they can accumulate over time with erosion. Dr. Foust will ask you to bite down on a very thin piece of colored paper, which transfers color to the areas where contact occurs. To eliminate the interference, he carefully removes a minimal amount of tooth enamel and repeats this process until your teeth meet together properly.
Crowns are a good option for teeth that have been compromised by severe decay, large fillings, cracks, root canal therapy, and also as the final restoration for dental implants. The dental crown surrounds the visible portion of a natural tooth to strengthen it and reduce the risk of further complications. Dental bridges consist of several crowns that replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They attach to one or both teeth on either side of empty tooth socket(s) to restore esthetics and function. Both crowns and bridges require modification of natural teeth.
A bright, beautiful smile sends out a message that you’re happy, healthy and approachable, but even nearly perfect smiles need a little help now and then. One of the quickest and most affordable ways to dramatically improve your smile is professional teeth whitening. If your teeth are resistant to professional whitening, porcelain veneers are effective for restoring a bright white appearance. In addition to masking stains, veneers are an ideal option for beautifying teeth with chips or cracks, gaps or crowding, minor malformation, and moderate crookedness. Dr. Foust also offers smile makeovers, a customized solution that combines several cosmetic treatments for a revitalized smile and increased self-confidence.
We understand that life is full of unexpected emergencies and your teeth are no exception. Whether you or a family member has suffered a severe toothache, knocked out a tooth playing sports, broken a restoration, or experienced unexpected bleeding and pain after an extraction, we’re here to help! Should you require immediate attention, we can provide same-day dental care to alleviate your pain.

We hope that with each visit to our dental practice in Gibsonia, PA we get to know you a little bit better.
