The attentive dental team at Excel Dental, Inc. preaches preventive care to their patients, examining their teeth to preempt any decay, discoloration, disease, or other issues. However, when these problems can't be prevented, the dentists can rid chompers of stains through gel-based teeth whitening or fill cavities with natural-looking composite resin. Custom implants can fill in gaps caused by losing teeth, and veneers cover chips from mouth-based coal mining.
Drawing from more than 10 years of dental experience, Dr. Alvaro Lazo emphasizes gentle dentistry aided by advanced technology. Before performing dental services such as root canals, extractions, or cleaning, technicians reveal inner-mouth workings with digital radiography, which reduces the radiation exposure of traditional radiographs by up to 90%. Laser cavity detection and treatment seek out and stop tooth decay without the use of drills that can inadvertently tap into a tooth's precious oil reserves.
