General Dentistry

General Dentistry - Ocean Front Dentistry - Virginia BeachOur practice offers many dental services and handles all general dentistry procedures for both children and adults. General dentistry is the area of dentistry that focuses on oral hygiene and general tooth health. This can involve everything from comprehensive hygiene visits to fillings to crowns and bridges. Oceanfront Dentistry is a family dentistry practice in Virginia Beach that practices general dentistry for children that still have their baby teeth as well as those that have their permanent teeth. Family dentists are responsible for ensuring that plaque buildup around the teeth is kept to a minimum, that tooth decay is eliminated and cavities are filled, and that gums remain healthy.

One of the biggest goals of our dentists here at Oceanfront Dentistry is to promote preventive dentistry, which means coming in for your comprehensive hygiene visits regularly so that we can catch small problems before they turn into bigger ones. Regular hygiene visits will significantly reduce your chances for cavities and gum disease. By making your dental experience something worth looking forward to, we hope that you come to see us every six months and are able to maintain a healthy smile throughout your entire life!

When you come to see us every six months, you will have your teeth professional cleaned, polished, and flossed by one of our hygienists, and a comprehensive dental exam performed by Dr. White or Dr. Heffelfinger. Typically we will take x-rays once a year. This visit may also involve fluoride treatments.
