A general dentist in Petaluma, CA offers laser and restorative dentistry
Dr. Jurina Smida, a general dentist at Dental Care and Wellness of Sonoma County is proud to provide a wide range of laser and restorative dentistry procedures for patients in and around the Petaluma, California area. She is excited to offer men and women a way to address many dental concerns under one roof. Laser and restorative dentistry helps in keeping the smile healthy and happy while ensuring everything done is biocompatible with the body.
There are several procedures available at her practice that can be used to enhance the smile. Below is a small sampling of treatment options for individuals ready to improve the heath, wellness, and appearance of their teeth and gums:
- Tooth-colored composite resin fillings – at our practice, we avoid using silver amalgam fillings. Dr. Jurina Smida knows how these amalgam fillings can expose her patients to mercury and increase the risk of mercury toxicity.
- Non-metal restorations – patients can avoid problems associated with non-biocompatible solutions such as metal. Instead of using metal in the mouth, our practice focuses on using safe and effective alternatives including porcelains and ceramics.
- Mercury safe removal – by following the strict protocols of the IAOMT, Dr. Jurina Smida can ensure safe removal of mercury fillings for replacement with composite resin. There are many standards set forth by this organization to ensure protection of patients and staff throughout the procedure.
- Treatment of malocclusion – Dr. Jurina Smida helps patients avoid the orthodontist by providing an alternative to traditional braces with Invisalign. Invisalign is clear aligner therapy that provides the same results as metal bracket and wire orthodontia.
- Periodontal services – using laser therapies, our team of professionals can address conditions such as periodontal disease with a simple visit to our dental chair. Laser therapy is much less invasive than traditional means of treatment such as scaling and root planing.
