The Dental Services We Provide at Dental Care of Sanford
Professional Teeth Cleaning
We recommend that you visit us at Dental Care of Sanford at least twice a year for a regular check-up and professional teeth cleaning. A professional teeth cleaning will remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home just can't handle. Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat. Call Dental Care of Sanford today at 919-774-1733 to begin the dental care regimen that saves you time, money, and stress.
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at Dental Care of Sanford can restore the brilliance of your smile. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Corrective Dental Services
You may be unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth, but you would like to know more about the options available to you. We encourage you to call us at 919-774-1733 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures -- from reliably effective and affordable metal braces to the latest innovative orthodontic methods like Invisalign® aligners.

You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.
