Did you avoid eating ice cream this past summer because it causes issues with tooth sensitivity? While an occasional issue with sensitivity is nothing to be concerned about, If you find yourself avoiding certain hot and cold foods because it bothers your teeth frequently, it can be cause for concern.
Are you missing teeth, or have you learned you need to choose a tooth replacement option and are struggling to make a choice? At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we want you to know that your long-term health will always be your best investment. We see many patients who have experienced issues with their teeth for years and have postponed or delayed properly caring for their oral health. We have patients who ask if we recommend a tooth be replaced, especially if it is in the back of the mouth or it is an older patient. Our response is always the same — your teeth, no matter which ones, should always be replaced.
Would you love to make changes or improvements to your smile but have been hesitant to share your feelings with us? At Parker & Pennington Dentistry, we treat our patients like family and want to create a solution to any dental issue that is bothering you. You deserve a smile that makes you feel confident and that you love to show off to others. Oftentimes, patients don’t express their feelings and desires because they assume they will need an in-depth or expensive treatment. For our patients with healthy teeth, many times a simple treatment can lead to big changes with your smile. We offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments that combine art and science and will work with you to create a plan for your smile.
At Parker and Pennington Dentistry, we truly care about your oral health and work hard to restore your teeth and smile to something you are proud to show off. One way we do this is through the use of restorative dental treatments such as porcelain crowns. A porcelain crown is a tooth-colored cap that is placed over a tooth that is damaged due to decay or trauma. A crown can also be used to complete other dental treatments, such as a root canal, bridge, or dental implant. A crown also improves the appearance of a tooth that is severely discolored or an unusual shape. Patients love porcelain crowns because they not only restore the function of the tooth, but they also blend in seamlessly with natural teeth.
You deserve to have a dentist that you can trust completely. We earn our patients’ trust by taking the time to get to know and understand them. We listen to their needs, concerns and past experiences.
Do you avoid visiting the dentist because you are unsure about your dental insurance or you know you need dental work and are unsure of what insurance will cover? At Parker and Pennington Dentistry, we never want dental insurance to be the reason you don’t receive dental care. Unfortunately, dental insurance companies don’t always have the patient’s best interests in mind and instead have specific guidelines and treatment plans that may not fit in with what is needed for your oral health. This is the reason we categorize ourselves as a non-restricted provider. Dr. Parker and Dr. Pennington recently sat down to discuss what this means and how it can be beneficial to your dental health.
