Dental Cleanings & Exams
It is recommended that all patients should see a Dentist for a cleaning and exam every 6 months. During the cleaning, our friendly team will remove plaque and calculus from your teeth, leaving behind a bright and polished smile.
X-Rays are an effective preventive and diagnostic tool that provides our team important information not visible during a visual dental exam. Our team will utilize this important information to safely and accurately detect any dental abnormalities and then create a treatment plan. Our office uses Orthophos SL Technologies’ computerized dental radiography, a panoramic x-ray that covers a wider area than traditional intra-oral x-rays and provides us with valuable information about existing or emerging problems.
Having a crown put on becomes necessary when a tooth is severely damaged, is decaying, or cannot be fixed with bonded filling material. Crowns will then cover the remaining tooth and restore its function. At Northern NM Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer same-day crowns for our patients.
Porcelain bridges are utilized when you lose a tooth due to gum disease, decay, or injury. A bridge looks and acts the same as natural teeth and is permanently cemented to close any gaps in your mouth and prevent any further discomfort.
If you have a tooth that is decaying or damaged, we can perform quick, hassle free extractions.
Teeth can be subject to decay and cracks, and when this occurs, a dental filling is needed to restore the tooth.
Root canal therapy is performed when a cavity reaches the pulp of a tooth causing an infection of the nerve, or when severe trauma has affected a tooth.
