At the dental office of G.R. Sheumaker Jr. DDS, our general dentistry services are widely varied and comprehensive!
We work hard to get ALL of your general dentistry needs taken care of. Whether you need dental fillings, or just want to improve the aesthetics of your smile, you can expect nothing but the best from our general dentistry practice, which serves those in the Lakeland, Florida area.
To help you become more familiar with our services, here is a brief overview of some of the services we offer.
- Dental Fillings – When you come in for your dental checkup, we will give you dental health tips relating to how you can better care for your teeth. By brushing, flossing, and coming in for a dental checkup regularly, you will likely be able to always have healthy gums and teeth. However, if you aren’t so diligent about brushing or forget to floss every once and a while, the enamel on your teeth may begin to wear away and cause cavities to form. When this happens, you will need dental fillings. When you come to our office, getting a dental filling is a quick, relatively painless, and easy procedure.
- Crowns & Bridges – Another one of the general dentistry services we offer is crowns and bridges. As you age, you may notice that your teeth aren’t as strong as they once were, and the result is cracked, damaged, or missing teeth. When this occurs, our office can easily restore your smile back to its former beauty with either crowns or bridges. Crowns are designed to cover the top of an existing tooth ,while bridges are meant to close the gap where a tooth is missing.
- Implant Restorations – For many people with missing teeth, implant restorations are their procedure of choice. When you come into our office for a dental implant restoration, the implant will be surgically placed into your jawbone and then be given time to heal. After the surgical site has healed, a crown will be placed over the top of the implant to give you a beautiful, full looking smile.
- Dentures – If other tooth restoration or replacement procedures are not the right option or you, dentures can replace all or some of the teeth in your mouth. Contrary to common belief, dentures are natural-looking and allow you to eat, talk, drink, and go about your daily activities as normal.
These procedures are just a small glimpse of all the general dentistry services we offer our patients. When you come in for a dental checkup at our office, we will make your dental health and happiness our priority. To make receiving needed dental care a financial reality for our patients, we consistently offer discounts to our uninsured patients and accept several major dental insurance plans. If you are on the lookout for a quality dentist in the Lakeland area, don’t go anywhere else but the dental office of G.R. Sheumaker Jr. DDS!
