San Francisco General Dentistry
Dr. Larson and his team provide expert general dentistry care to patients in the greater San Francisco area. General dentistry refers to the most common dental procedures, such as crowns, bridges, fillings, bonding and dental cleanings.
Dr. Larson also offers metal-free fillings, crowns and bridges. Fillings and crowns can restore teeth affected by tooth decay. Bridges help fortify your bite when you lose a tooth by linking adjacent teeth together similar to a bridge, hence the name.
Dental bonding is the process of bonding a tooth-colored material to the teeth with the help of a special light. Dental bonding can subtly and simply correct aesthetic imperfections in your teeth. Many patients choose dental bonding to close gaps in their teeth, to lengthen their teeth, to fix cracks or chips, to cover stains and to alter the shape of their teeth. Dental bonding can also be used restoratively to fill cavities or to shield exposed tooth roots. Dr. Larson can bond teeth without much preparation, and most patients won’t need any anesthesia. Dr. Larson uses his skill and artistry to enhance smiles with dental bonding.
Our team gives comprehensive dental cleanings at each regular appointment. You can expect a complete examination of your gums and teeth, and we will check for signs of gingivitis and gum disease. We will also thoroughly clean your teeth and check for cavities with the most up-to-date technology. You can run your tongue along the backside of your teeth and feel each individual tooth after your cleaning. We will also review the best brushing and flossing habits to keep your teeth clean and cavity-free. We will also examine your mouth for any unseen issues hiding below the surface. The American Dental Association recommends healthy patients visit the dentist twice a year. Patients with higher risks of oral health issues may be advised to visit us more than twice a year.
Our team also offers cosmetic dentistry services such as Invisalign Orthodontics, porcelain veneers, laser gum contouring and teeth whitening. Dr. Larson has extensive experience with specialized dentistry services such as TMJ relief, teeth grinding, migraine headache relief, full mouth rejuvenation, dental implants and sleep apnea treatments. We provide sedation options for patients who need them.
