Does the thought of a dental appointment makes you sweat?
You are not alone — but modern methods ensure that your discomfort is minimized.
Not exactly looking forward to your next dental appointment?
At Bella Smile, we provide Anxiety-Free Dentistry.
Are you afraid of going to the Dentist?
Believe it or not, you’re not alone. Nearly 80% of adult Americans experience some degree of fear or anxiety about going to the dentist.
Reasons why adults are afraid to go to the dentist:
Do not like the dental post-cleaning sensation that is in the mouth and teeth.
Here at Bella Smiles, we provide Anxiety-Free Dentistry and we are here to make you feel comfortable and relaxed during your entire treatment. Our supportive staff is here to listen to your concerns regarding your dental issues and fears about the procedures to be performed. It is very important to maintain a frank and open communication. We will explain the type of treatment recommended for you, inform you about the details of the procedure, and answer any questions orconcerns you have about treatment.
If you feel nervous or tense before any procedure, you can relax! We offer a wide range of safe and effective treatments to ease or eliminate any potential discomfort or distress you may be experiencing.
The dentist can apply nitrous oxide, an analgesic and sedative, to help our patients relax during treatment. Other medications may also be used, depending on the level of fear that the patient exhibits.
We will make every effort to make your appointment a quiet and pleasant experience.
We are dedicated to making sure our patients have smiles of which they can be proud. It is our goal to give our patients the smiles they deserve. We also want to make sure they are proud of their entire face, so we offer BOTOX® to help.
To reach our goal and give you the smile you deserve, we are constantly learning new techniques. We want to help our patients as quickly and easily as possible so we are proud to offer the latest technologies including BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is used to help patients who suffer from TMD. These people are often afflicted with tension and pain in their jaws. They may also suffer from headaches because they grind their teeth and clench their jaws.
Here at our hospital, we inject BOTOX® into the sore facial muscles. It helps to relax the jaw and release the tension, which is why it can be helpful for headaches caused by clenching the jaw. It is also helpful with lockjaw.
If you h ave any questions about BOTOX®, or how we can help you, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Many patients lose teeth as they age. This can actually change the way your mouth looks and functions. It can also change the look of your face.
For this reason, we offer bridges to help fill in the gaps. Bridges with artificial teeth can get your mouth back to its correct shape and functioning as it should.
There are a lot of options when it come to bridges. They can be made of different materials, including porcelain, gold, and alloys. You can also get removable or fixed bridges. You can take your removable bridges out yourself to clean them, while your dentist will have to remove fixed bridges. Fixed ones are implanted right to your jaw or under your gums.
It is always important to have a thorough examination with x-rays. After that, we will be able to discuss your options so we can make the right choice for your mouth.
If you have any questions about bridges or think you might need one, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer dental bonding to our patients.
Many people are unhappy with their smiles because they have cracked, broken, or decayed teeth. They don’t like how their teeth look.
We can help if you have this problem. Dental bonding is used to change the shape and size of your teeth, giving you a uniform smile that looks natural.
Dental bonding can also be used on cavities and is commonly used for receding gums. It protects the teeth that are exposed since they are not meant to be out.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which we apply a plastic material over the top of your tooth. We then use a special light to harden the plastic so that it bonds to your tooth. The material we use can be matched to your natural tooth color so that it looks natural!
If you have any questions about dental bonding or need to be seen by one of our dentists, feel free to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer cosmetic dentistry.
Our goal with cosmetic dentistry is to give you a smile of which you can be proud. All people, no matter what their background or profession, want a beautiful smile they can show off.
We offer both minor and major changes to help you feel better about your teeth. We offer procedures to help improve the way your teeth look, whether they are discolored, chipped, irregular, or something else. We offer bonding, veneers, whitening, reshaping, and crowns to ensure you are proud of your smile again.
Before we do any cosmetic dental work, we will do a thorough examination with x-rays. Then, we will go over all of your options and their costs to determine an individualized plan that works for you and your mouth.
We will listen to your wants and needs. We study the color of your teeth and how they are all lined up. We investigate any cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. Then, we will figure out all of your options.
While we are trying to decide how to proceed, we will discuss the different procedures. We want you to know what to expect before, during, and after. We want you to understand what to expect. It is also important to know what you will need to do after the procedure.
We are also here to discuss any of your concerns. We want you to feel confident in your choice as we start to help you get the smile you deserve.
If you have any questions about how we can help your smile, feel free to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer crowns to our patients.
If you have missing or cracked teeth, you are probably not happy with your smile. We are here to help you feel better about your mouth so you enjoy showing it off.
One way we can do this is by offering crowns to our patients. A crown covers up a bad tooth so you have a natural-looking tooth that fits right into your mouth.
Crowns are also used to keep a filling in place when there is not much tooth left. They can also strengthen your regular teeth by giving them extra protection. If you have discolored teeth or teeth that are misshapen, a crown will help you have a smile of which you can be proud.
Crowns are attached right to your teeth so you will be able to do everything you can do with normal teeth. You can eat all of the foods you enjoy, no matter how hard it is to bite.
Many different types of crowns are available, so we will be happy to discuss your options so you can be happy with your new smile.
If you have any questions about crowns or think you may benefit from having one, don’t hesitate to contact our office today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are happy to offer custom dentures and partials to our patients.
Dentures are used to help solve problems that happen when patients start to lose teeth, whether we remove them or they fall out. After removing one or more teeth, a person’s mouth will start to shift, making changes to your mouth and your face!
For this reason, we offer complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are for when all of your teeth are missing, and partials are for when you still have a few teeth.
We also offer both conventional and immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are made prior to removing your teeth while conventional dentures are made afterward. Then it takes eight to twelve weeks to get them.
It is our goal to make the process go as smoothly as possible. We will discuss your options, and together we can decide the best way to proceed.
If you have any questions about dentures or would like to schedule an examination to see if you could benefit from them, feel free to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer dental implants to our patients.
It is our goal to give our patients smiles of which they are proud. If you have missing teeth, you may need dental implants. We don’t want you to suffer from a smile that embarrases you.
Besides the look, dental implants are needed for dental health. Food, plaque, and bacteria will build up wherever you are missing teeth. That buildup can be really hard to clean, so you may end up developing cavities and other dental problems.
Dental implants have more benefits. It is easier to eat with them. Many people find that their speech is much better also.
Dental implants are used to replace your teeth roots. They act as roots (and a base) for permanent teeth that will be placed later. Without implants, your artificial teeth will be weak, and you may end up losing them.
When done correctly and cared for properly, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash with implants. It is also important to maintain routine dental checkups to ensure your mouth is still healthy.
If you have any questions about dental implants or how we can help your smile, feel free to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are pleased to offer our patients digital x-rays and intraoral pictures.
We are dedicated to giving our patients the high quality care they deserve. We are proud to offer the latest technologies and equipment to keep their mouths healthy.
Since our goal is to give our patients the highest-quality dental care, we offer digital x-rays. These x-rays are a safe and effective alternative to regular dental x-rays.
We are able to view the health of your teeth in just a few seconds instead of minutes when we use digital films! We are also able to get the perfect image right away instead of taking multiple films to get the correct exposure. We can simply adjust the contrast if necessary!
Digital films allow us to give our patients quicker, better service. For this reason, we are glad we can offer our patients the best and fastest x-ray service.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to have an intraoral camera for our patients. They always say that a picture is worth a thousand words. We use our camera for just that reason. We can take a picture and show you what is going on with your mouth. You may not believe you have dental disease until you see the pictures.
Our camera is also very helpful when we are tracking the disease’s progress. We can take before and after pictures to determine if the treatment is working. We can see how far your mouth has come and determine if more treatment or a whole different type of treatment is needed.
If you decide to get a complicated procedure, a picture may help you see what you really can’t see otherwise.
If you have any questions about our digital x-rays, our intraoral camera, or would like to schedule an examination, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer tooth extractions to our patients.
Tooth extractions can be necessary for many reasons. Some teeth are too diseased to save. There are times when a tooth is too damaged. We also like to remove teeth if your mouth is overcrowded.
We will always do a thorough examination with x-rays to determine the best course of action for you. We will go through your options so we can make the right decision for you and your mouth.
If we decide you need an extraction, we will numb the area prior to starting. We will then pull the tooth. There is usually a small amount of bleeding because your mouth will form a blood clot to fix the area.
The aftercare of your mouth is important. We will go over the correct way to care for your mouth after a tooth removal. Your mouth may be sore for a few days as it heals. We do not recommend smoking, drinking with a straw, or eating foods that may aggravate your mouth. You are going to have to continue to take care of the rest of your teeth, so you will just have to be extra careful around your missing tooth.
We are here for you if you have any problems after surgery. Some people have extra discomfort and pain, so we can recommend certain pain medications. Some people notice swelling in the area, and they need to come in and be seen.
If you think you may need an extraction, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to be a general family dentist office.
We are excited to be able to offer comprehensive dental care for you and your entire family! We prefer to treat every person in the family so that you don’t have to run all over town just to have beautiful smiles.
We prefer to start children out young, teaching them the correct way to keep their teeth and mouth healthy.
We recommend routine examinations for children because we can help them eat, talk, and smile better. We understand primary teeth and will do everything we can to keep their mouths as healthy as possible. We also will keep an eye out for problems as they lose teeth and new ones start to come in.
We are also proud to serve adults of all ages. We strive to have a family-oriented environment so you are happy to bring your whole family to our office to ensure good dental health!
It is our goal to ensure you have a positive visit every time you walk through our doors. If you have any problems, you need to let us know so we can address the issue.

Periodontal cleaning is a procedure that cleans your teeth thoroughly. It is very important to stop periodontal disease from getting any worse.
During a maintenance cleaning, we remove any tartar and plaque buildup above and below your gums. This includes your gum pockets and underneath your gum line. We also remove bacteria.
In bad cases of periodontal disease, we may medicate your teeth (and gum pockets) with an antibiotic or antimicrobial gel. We also use this time to take radiographs and get a clear view of your teeth and gums.
The cleaning helps your teeth look better and will also improve your breath! After we are finished, it is up to you to keep your mouth nice and healthy with routine brushing and flossing. You may also want to use an antibacterial mouthwash to keep bacteria at bay.
If you are due for a maintenance cleaning or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are dedicated to the prevention and treatment of gum disease.
Gum disease means your gums (the tissue surrounding your teeth) are infected. It is the biggest reason that people lose their teeth.
Gum disease starts out because plaque and bacteria build up on your teeth. You can remove most plaque and bacteria with routine brushing and flossing, though you need to see your dentist regularly to have your teeth professionally cleaned. We will even clean underneath your gums and other hard to reach spots!
Some symptoms of gum disease include bleeding when you brush your teeth, red and swollen gums, or gums that seem to be pulling away from your teeth. You may also have really bad breath, no matter how much you brush and rinse with mouthwash. As the disease progresses, you may even start to lose your teeth.
People who don’t take good care of their teeth are more prone to the disease. Those who smoke or chew tobacco are also more likely to have gum disease. There are some diseases, conditions, and medications that can increase your risk. Pregnant women are more likely to get the disease. People who have diabetes are also as risk. These people should see their dentist more often.
Gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, can be eliminated by a thorough dental cleaning and proper dental care following the cleaning. If gingivitis is not treated, it turns into periodontitis (advanced gum disease). As the disease continues to worsen, it can lead to irreversible loss of the tissue and bone that support your teeth.
It is amazing how many adults this disease affects. Almost half of adults over thirty have various forms of gum disease, which is amazing because people don’t realize how important good dental care is.
If you are concerned about your dental health, don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Porcelain veneers are designed to look like your natural teeth and are individually attached to the front of your existing teeth. Veneers are used to cover stains, chips, decays, or irregularities on your teeth. They can also be used to close gaps between your teeth.
Veneers are a thin coat that a dental technician applies right over your teeth. In order to proceed with veneers, you need to have a model made of your teeth so that your veneers can be custom made to fit your mouth. We also have to remove some enamel to make them permanent.
It is important that you take good care of your veneers. We recommend staying away from food and drinks that may stain them. They can also crack or chip if you are not careful.
Veneers are a more affordable option to give you a beautiful smile. They are much cheaper than crowns, but they will still help you have a smile of which you are proud. They are also better than bonding because many people complain that their bonds lose their natural-teeth color.
If you are considering veneers, contact us today at (954) 990-6278 to schedule an appointment to discuss your options.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer whitening services to our patients.
The most common complaint people have about their teeth is their color. There are a lot of whitening products on the market, so it is important to discuss your options with your dentist.
There are many things that can affect the color of your teeth. Most people believe discoloration is due to plaque and dirt, but that is not always the case. You might notice that your teeth become discolored due to the food and drinks you consume. Using tobacco can really stain your teeth. Sometimes medications and injuries can change the color of your teeth.
It is really important to understand why your teeth are discolored so that you can find the best way to treat them.
Teeth-whitening products use bleach, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which breaks up stains into smaller pieces. This makes them harder to see, making your teeth brighter. However, bleaches do not work on all teeth, so it is important to talk to your dentist before you bleach your teeth.
You also have to understand that whitening will not work on caps, veneers, crowns, or fillings that were originally made to match your teeth’s natural color. They do not always work on discoloration caused by certain medications.
There are many options when it comes to whitening methods, including toothpastes, at-home bleaching, and bleaching in our office. Each one works differently and varies in effectiveness and safety. For this reason, you should talk to us before you decide to bleach your teeth.
There are times when the bleach in the product can affect your enamel. This irritates the nerves, making your teeth really sensitive. This usually goes away, but if you overuse whiteners, they can cause lasting damage, so if you are having any problems, you need to see your dentist.
If you have any questions about teeth whitening, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
Here at Bella Smile Cosmetic Dentistry, we are proud to offer fillings to our patients.
Dental fillings are used to treat different dental problems like cavities and broken teeth. Teeth are usually filled with a material called composite resin, which is designed to look like your natural teeth. Fillings can also be done with gold, porcelain, or silver amalgam.
Composite resin takes a little longer, though most people still prefer it for natural-looking teeth. It takes more than one layer, and a special light is used to harden the area around the filling.
Before you get a filling, you will get a local anesthetic to numb the gums around your tooth. We will then clean away the bad and decayed part of your tooth so your tooth is ready to be filled. Some dentists will apply glass ionomer to your tooth to protect your tooth and nerve. Once your tooth is all filled in, we will smooth over the rough edges and polish it so it looks natural.
Depending on the damage, the amount of time to fill each tooth varies. The cost may also go up, the longer that it takes.
If you have any questions about fillings or think you may need one, please contact us today at (954) 990-6278.
