Then, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums. The exam ends with our staff giving you recommendations to improve the health or appearance of your teeth.
Dental X-rays are taken when needed. These X-rays allow us to see what is going on with your teeth below the gum line. This also allows us to check other hard-to-see areas.
