General Dentistry for Lititz
Unlike the medical profession that is highly specialized, dentistry is designed to be a comprehensive practice. That’s good news for you, because you’ll likely be able to see one dental professional for all of your family’s dental needs. In Lititz and Lancaster that professional is Dr. Sean Moriarty. As a general dentist, Dr. Moriarty is educated to provide a complete menu of dental procedures in order to help you and all the members of your family enjoy healthy and beautiful smiles for a lifetime.
At the foundation of Mor Smiles’ general dentistry is your dental checkup. In keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Moriarty and his team of dental hygienists and dental assistants would like to see everyone in your family every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. These appointments don’t only give us the chance to freshen your mouth with a thorough teeth cleaning, but we also carefully assess the health of your teeth and gums. We’re looking for the early signs of tooth decay and gum disease, so these can be treated sooner rather than later. In addition, we’ll also conduct a very important screening for oral cancer, a disease that is often treatable and curable when caught early.
General Dentistry beyond Your Checkup
If Dr. Moriarty or one of our staff finds a problem during one of your checkups, then we have the treatment necessary to restore health and functionality to your tooth. For example, a tooth with a cavity can be repaired with a tooth-colored filling. Using a blend of composite resin materials, we rebuild your tooth for strength, durability and aesthetic appearance.
In the case of one or more missing teeth, we offer a number of tooth replacement options. Tooth loss can lead to other problems, not the least of which include difficulty maintaining a balanced diet with fresh fruits and vegetables; speech impediments, because teeth are integral to word pronunciation and sound enunciation; and issues of low self-esteem and self-confidence. To overcome these concerns and to restore oral health, Dr. Moriarty may recommend dental implants, crown and bridge therapy or dentures. You and he will consult to determine what the best choice is for you.
A Beautiful Smile from the General Dentist in Lititz
While your oral health is a primary concern, following a close second is the aesthetic appearance of your smile. We want you to have a smile that you’re proud of. For this reason, Mor Smiles offers cosmetic dentistry to help you smile more!
One of our most popular cosmetic treatments is in-office teeth whitening. As we age, our teeth can become stained or discolored from the foods we eat and the beverages we drink, smoking, certain medications, cracks that hide stains and even our genetics. Our whitening system requires only one appointment to make your smile several shades brighter.
If you have a smile that you’d rather hide than share because of chips, cracks, stains, somewhat misaligned or misshaped teeth and teeth that have wide gaps between them, then consider porcelain veneers. Made of dental porcelain, these dental wonders are adhesively bonded to the front of teeth in your smile zone to reveal a natural and beautiful smile.
