From routine care to a variety of cosmetic procedures to correct flaws, it’s our privilege to offer our patients in Aledo, Granbury, Weatherford and West Fort Forth comprehensive dental services to give you a beautiful and healthy smile.
As a courtesy, we inform you of the cost prior to beginning any treatment program. We are an in-network provider for most major dental PPO insurance plans. If you are not sure if you are covered, call us!
We accept cash, checks and all major credit cards. If you need or require a procedure that costs more than you can comfortably pay, we offer financing through CareCredit.
Look, we know it can be scary and/or uncomfortable to have someone digging around your mouth, especially if there’s an already painful problem. Maybe you just hate the sound of the drill. We use sedation dentistry to help you feel at ease during any treatment; this means more procedures can be performed at one appointment, and less time in the dentist’s chair. Sedation is in the form of an oral sedative that allows you to relax and fall into a sleep-like state. We also use nitrous oxide.
Routine Dental Care is defined as a visit to the dentist once every six months for a thorough cleaning and exam, although it may be recommended that you visit more often, depending on your oral health. This is important! The health of your teeth and gums affects other systems of your body, so if your mouth isn’t healthy, the chance of you having problems with your stomach, digestive system, and even having heart problem goes way up! At Eleven Eighty Seven Dental, our routine care usually involves:
Medical history review
Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs)
Oral cancer screening
Gum disease evaluation
Examination of tooth decay
Examination of existing restorations
Removal of calculus (tartar)
Removal of plaque
Oral hygiene recommendations
Review dietary habits
If you’re worried about your child getting cavities, sealants may be an option. Sealants are thin plastic coatings “painted” over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent germs and food from causing decay. Applied as a liquid, it quickly hardens to form a shield protecting the teeth, and lasts several years. It is advisable that children get sealants on permanent molars as soon as the teeth come in.
A tooth’s nerve and “pulp” can be irritated, inflamed and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth or even trauma to the face. The root canal procedure consists of removing the nerve and pulp and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
If your teeth have been worn down, damaged by accident or tooth decay, or are cracked, a crown may be your best solution. Cosmetically very attractive, this option is recommended when the tooth’s structure and health is critical.
Whitening your teeth is perhaps the easiest way to get a smile makeover! Stains appear over time from smoking, wine, coffee and tea, and soda; sometimes from certain medications. At Eleven Eighty Seven Dental we offer a couple of different whitening and bleaching systems that are highly effective and are sure to give you amazing results.
Veneers are a quick and permanent solution to attaining straight teeth without wearing braces, and they look just like your own teeth. Veneers mask flaws such as chipped, crooked or discolored teeth.
If you’re missing teeth, dentures are the affordable solution compared to implants, and improve your appearance, function, and comfort. Missing teeth can impact you emotionally and physically—call us today to see how we can help you.
