Dental Services in Parksley
At Eastern Shore Family Dentistry, your oral health is our top priority. We offer dental services for everyone in your family, from the children who need friendly guidance and a cleaning, to the adults who may have more serious issues, such as broken or missing teeth. We can also help you improve the appearance of your smile with a teeth-whitening procedure.
Our staff, led by Dr. Timothy Fei, has years of experience tending to patients’ dental needs, whether they’re preventive measures or restorative procedures.
We know many people are nervous going to the dentist, but a six-month checkup is vital to maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. During your regular examination, preventive care methods include a thorough cleaning, during which our hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup. Your teeth will look and feel better, and this can also help prevent gum disease. The hygienist will also thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to check for possible cavities and periodontal issues. Many times, X-rays are taken of your mouth so that your teeth can be seen from the inside and below the gums. Any potential issues can be identified early, potentially preventing more painful and expensive procedures later.
To prevent enamel erosion and tooth decay, we also offer the option of providing a sealant application to your teeth. A sealant is a thin, plastic coating that covers your teeth’s surface area, protecting them from cavities.
In addition to preventive services, we also offer restorative dentistry. Having mouth pain and oral issues can be disruptive to your life and can cause embarrassment along with the discomfort. Everyday tasks like eating and talking can become difficult and excruciating. Our staff is here to help you feel and function better.
Whether you need a root canal or a tooth extraction, we will make sure you are comfortable both during the procedure and afterward. Other restorative services we do are dentures and gum treatments to tackle gingivitis.
You can count on us for any dental needs you may have.
Our staff loves kids! We have more than 20 years of experience working with children from toddlerhood through their teens. At every age, kids have different needs when it comes to their dental health. In early childhood, the development of their first teeth and teaching proper oral hygiene techniques are of utmost importance. As kids get older, bad habits such as sugar addictions can lead to cavities and gum disease. We look for these factors and help prevent further damage with friendly advice. We want to make sure your children feel safe and comfortable with us, but also that they understand the long-term benefits of good oral care.
Everyone wants a beautiful smile. Our talented staff can help you restore your self-confidence. If you’re missing one tooth or several, implants or a bridge can restore the appearance of a full set of healthy teeth. If you have severely damaged teeth, a crown may be the solution for you. We also offer cosmetic (tooth-colored) fillings for cavities so that no one will notice you have them. If your teeth are yellowed, set up an appointment for a one-hour whitening session.
