Welcome to the Mario Hernandez Dentist. We put your family’s Dental Health and well being first.
Our goal is to provide the best SERVICE always. We want you, our valued patient, to be happy. Here is a short list of our services
Preventive Dentistry Services
Preventive dentistry is the maintenance of a normal masticating mechanism by fortifying the structures of the oral cavity against damage and disease of the teeth and supporting structures
We can mention three forms of preventive dentistry:
the use of a topical fluoride gel to prevent caries is a basic primary prevention
a second one would be dental restoration
and a third one could be fixed bridge
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Cosmetic Dentistry Services includes dental procedures, like crowns, dental veneers and dental implants, teeth whitening, tooth reshaping, and gum-lifts. Cosmetic dentistry can be called cosmetic surgery
Restorative Dental Services
Restorative Dental Services is the restoration of existing teeth that are defective because of abnormal development, diseases, traumas, or normal function, health, and appearance; it includes crowns and bridgework.
Dental implants are artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures
A dental sealant is a material that is applied on the surface of the teeth to prevent decay caused by bacteria. Dental sealants can effectively separate bacteria from the enamel off the back teeth thus preventing the interaction of bacteria with the fissures on the surface of the teeth
Lumineers are a special type of porcelain veneer which is thinner and much stronger than regular veneers. They can be applied to teeth without any pain or need of anesthesia and can be removed if desired. Lumineers last as long as other veneers, they are less expensive. They also can also be used to change the shape and length of the tooth and are very resilient while looking natural. Lumineers can be used to hide stains and chipped
When a patient has tooth loss him or her must keep in mind that it can affect the way you eat, speak, and the alignment of other teeth in your mouth. A fixed bridge is one option that you have when the patient has to make the decision how to deal with a missing tooth or teeth. To replace missing teeth is necessary in order to maintain the proper mouth functions.
Crowns are usually used when teeth have been broken, have been largely destroyed through dental decay or are excessively worn. Crowns are molded in a dental laboratory and, unlike basic filings; act as strengtheners for what is left of the original teeth.
Hygiene / Periodontal Health
This disease can really cause a lot of damage (attacks the gum and bone and around the teeth). Basically, bacteria growth is going to be the underlying cause of peridontitis.
Veneers are a common form of cosmetic dentistry. When a patient has misshapen, chipped or uneven teeth, we apply a porcelain veneer over the tooth or teeth and rebuilds the teeth for the correct look. They are not false teeth, just additions to current teeth
Complete / Removable Partial Dentures
A complete or partial denture that can be readily placed in the oral cavity and removed by the wearer
An extraction is the removal of a tooth from the oral cavity by means of elevators and/or forceps
The root canal treatment is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged (bacteria build up inside the pulp, spreading infection from the natural crown of the tooth to the root tips in the jawbone, this pus accumulates at the ends of the roots, forming a painful abscess which can damage the bone supporting the teeth) pulp of a tooth is removed and the inside areas are filled and sealed
Root canal treatment is made with local anesthesia. A thin rubber dam is placed in the mouth to isolate the tooth. The dentist removes any tooth decay and makes an opening through the natural crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber. Creating this access also relieves the pressure inside the tooth and can dramatically ease pain
Emergency Dental Services
An Emergency Dental Service is a disorder of oral health that requires dental and/or medical attention, that can be broken, loose or evulsed teeth caused by traumas; also infections or inflammations of the soft tissues in the mouth; and or complications from oral surgery
