Dental Services Provided at Smile Sensations Dental

At Smile Sensations Dental, we pride ourselves on being one of the most proficient dental offices in Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas. We provide a wide array of services that focus on preventing as well as solving oral health issues. We approach dentistry from a whole-body health perspective, which means that we aren’t just solving problems in a patient’s mouth; instead, we are helping them to become healthy overall. Here is a brief overview of the categories of dental services we offer.

Preventative Dentistry

The saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is completely true when it comes to dentistry. This aspect of dental care involves establishing habits that will keep your teeth healthy and help you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.

During your regular visit to Smile Sensations Dental, your dental hygienist will point out any issues that you may be having with your oral hygiene. You’ll be able to take that advice and incorporate it into your brushing and flossing routine, potentially stopping a cavity or gum disease before it starts!

General Dentistry

Dr. Taylor and our staff have a philosophy of providing quality dental care and are committed to helping each patient make informed decisions about their oral health. Dr. Taylor has invested the time, resources, and energy into advanced training and education in order to offer a wide range of services to our valued patients.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Our smiles are a huge part of the first impression we make in business and social settings, and having a smile we’re proud to show off is critical for self-confidence. That’s why Smile Sensation Dental offers an array of cosmetic treatments.

Endodontic Treatment

Our natural teeth are better at doing what teeth do than even the most state-of-the-art replacement, which is why saving teeth with root canal treatment is so important. During root canal treatment, the doctor will carefully remove the pulp inside of a tooth, clean, disinfect, and shape the root canal, and then place a filling to seal the space. It’s a simple procedure that will relieve tooth pain caused by infection.

  • Internal Bleaching
  • Microsurgery
  • Post & Core
  • Pulp Regeneration
  • Root Canals
  • Root Canal Retreatment

Orthodontics

Having straight teeth isn’t just about making your smile look good (although it certainly helps); it’s about being able to chew food effectively, speak clearly, and not wear down the teeth unevenly. At Smile Sensations Dental, we offer a wide range of orthodontic treatment options.

  • Clear Aligners
  • Braces
  • Braces by Damon
  • Emergency Orthodontic Care
  • Invisalign

An experience that is calm and inviting. Many parents choose to have Dr. Taylor treat their children because of their ability to deal with all types of child behavior and special needs.

At this stage, patients need more invasive treatments and may experience numerous adverse oral and overall health effects.
