Take Care of Your General Dentistry Needs

At Peters Creek Dentistry in Roanoke, VA

At Peters Creek Dentistry, we are committed to offering the highest quality general dentistry services that help you maintain and optimize your oral health. We provide a variety of general dentistry services for patients in Roanoke and surrounding areas. The procedures that make up general dentistry are designed to ensure you have a lifetime of good oral health.

At Peters Creek Dentistry, we offer the following general dentistry services:

Regular cleanings and checkups are necessary for dental health. At Peters Creek Dentistry, we suggest you come into our office for a complete dental checkup once a year, at minimum.

We recommend this because each time you visit, we check to make sure there have been no changes to your oral health. This is important because oral health has been proven to be linked to overall well-being.

While you must brush and floss at home, we can provide a deeper cleaning for your mouth—especially in those hard-to-reach places. With our dental instruments, we scrape plaque and tartar from your teeth, which can cause cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. We polish your pearly whites to remove stains and give you a brighter smile.

If you crack or chip a tooth, you may want to visit our office to have it repaired with tooth bonding. Tooth bonding can even fix gaps in your teeth.

First, we’ll choose a composite resin that is as close to your natural tooth color as possible. After creating a rough surface on the affected tooth, our dental experts will “bond” the resin to your tooth.

After shaping it on the tooth and drying it with a UV light, you’re ready to go. This simple outpatient procedure is a good alternative to a veneer or crown, especially if it’s just a crack or small chip.

When necessary, we take digital x-rays to see the full structure of your mouth. We then take those images and analyze them for any potential issues, such as gum disease or tooth decay. If we can catch them early, they are easier to fix and can help prevent you from experiencing pain or other problems down the road.

Getting teeth x-rays regularly is part of keeping a vital part of your body—your teeth—in top shape so you can chew, speak, smile, and digest food better.

Many people experience a cavity in their lifetime. Over time, when bacteria sit on the tooth, it creates a hole in the enamel of the tooth, which can further destroy the tooth if not addressed.

At Peters Creek Dentistry, we offer tooth-colored composite fillings, an alternative to silver fillings, made of plastic that fill the cavity and make your tooth look like new, preventing further damage or infection. This quick and painless procedure will fix the appearance of your tooth and allow you to eat as normal within a few hours.

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth, which are more commonly affected by cavities than the front teeth. Peters Creek Dentistry provides sealants to our patients to help protect the grooves and fissures in your back teeth from becoming infected with bacteria and causing tooth decay. By intercepting food and preventing it from staining the teeth, they’re also an excellent way of preventing tooth staining caused by drinks such as red wine and coffee.

Most sealants are applied when a patient is young, before they reach the age of 13. But they can also be used to protect vulnerable tooth surfaces from cavities in adults, as a second line of defense in certain cases. The best time to get sealants is when a tooth has a deep cavity, but you can also get sealants if you have small chips or cracks in your teeth.

Gum disease is a serious condition and, unfortunately, a common problem that can lead to bad oral hygiene, tooth loss, and other health problems. Gum disease is a result of tartar, plaque, and bacteria that is not removed from the teeth.

If you notice swelling or bleeding gums, especially when you brush or floss, this is a sign of gum disease. The good news is that frequent visits to our office and non-surgical treatment are an effective way to help prevent and treat gum disease before it worsens, while also improving the health of your gums.

    First time visiting this practice today after my former dentist retired and I am blown away at how great it is. The staff treated me like I was a longtime customer, made me feel valued and welcomed. They had much nicer technology and more advanced dental cleaning tools than my last dentist and I walked out of the appointment feeling like my mouth was incredibly cleaned. They took great precautions to avoid Covid spread so I didn't even remotely feel like I was walking into a risky setting, it felt very safe. The dentist was really nice and also made me feel very welcome. I will be a longtime patient of this practice, I know that for a fact!
