Learn More About How Our Novato Dentists Can Optimize Your Smile

Written by Dr. McConnell on Feb 23, 2021

When you’re looking for a dentist you want to make sure that you find someone who mirrors your dental philosophy. Our Novato dentists, for example, are comprehensive dentists. Today, we’re going to be giving you some more information about what this means, and why so many people choose comprehensive dentistry.

The primary goal of comprehensive dentistry is to optimize the underlying structure of your smile, so that it looks great, functions well, and stands up to the rigors of time. We believe that a well-designed and healthy smile is a beautiful smile; we also know that there is no benefit in achieving an attractive result if it is purely cosmetic and not structurally sound.

So, let’s give you an example of how we address oral health problems.

Let’s say, for example, that you are dealing with cracked or chipped enamel. There are a number of dental treatments that can repair this type of damage, including dental bonding and dental restorations. However, as comprehensive dentists, we do more than simply patch your tooth.

Our team will assess your smile, to determine why, exactly, you’re dealing with dental damage. For example, if your teeth are poorly aligned, and your bite is uneven, certain teeth can become damaged as a result. Another common condition that creates dental damage is bruxism or chronic dental grinding. No matter what the underlying cause of your dental dysfunction, our dental team will help you find treatment options that both correct existing damage, and reduce your risk of developing more issues in the future.

As always, our Novato dentists are here to answer any questions that you may have about preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry treatments. Give our office a call, or use the Contact Us page on our website to get started!
