Family Dentistry Services
Our dentists have advanced dental training and we use that skill set in combination with sedation dentistry to enable us to provide services that fit the needs of your entire family from kiddos to the parents to the grandparents. We’ll take of care of your family just like we take of our own family!
We are a locally owned and operated dental office serving families from Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. We strive to provide general and family dental care in as a convenient manner as we can because we know how busy your lives are and how much it helps to have a dental office that not only cares about your teeth but also about your schedule!
At Riverpoint Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we know that family dentistry services provide a huge convenience to families! That is why our dentists have invested hundreds of hours into developing skills that allow them to treat patients of any age. Whether you are a child or an adult with severe dental anxiety or someone who just doesn’t like the dentist, our dental professionals can meet almost any need that you have. This is one of the main reasons that we have become a dentist Albuquerque trusts with their oral health!
We are also now accepting medicaid because we firmly believe that everyone deserves the unparalleled treatment that our dentists can offer.
If you have cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that suffer from tooth decay, your dentist will most likely recommend fillings to repair the teeth. The decay is removed from a tooth using a drill, or sometimes a laser. Once the decay is gone, your dentist will shape the tooth to prepare it for the filling. After the filling is placed, your dentist will polish and smooth the tooth so it feels good as new.
A dental crown is a cap that conceals the visible portion of a natural tooth, protecting it from further decay or cracking, or to hide a misshapen or discolored tooth. Crowns are made from stainless steel, other metal alloys, porcelain, white resin or ceramic, or a combination of these materials. A crown is really like a football helmet for the tooth protecting while making it look just like your other natural teeth. Zirconia crowns are the strongest crowns available today but they cannot be made in one hour as the weaker crowns can be. Our office focuses on providing the highest quality and best long-term dental care possible so we routinely recommend Zirconia crowns for our patients but we charge the SAME fee as the 1 hour crowns…ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS and our dentists care deeply about providing the best quality and most affordable dental care possible.
A dental bridge can be used to replace a missing tooth. It is made up of two anchoring teeth on either side of a gap where a tooth is missing and the fake tooth or teeth, which replace the ones that are missing. These adjacent teeth are called abutment teeth and hold the false tooth, called a pontic, securely in place so that it functions like a real tooth or teeth. A dental implant can also be used to replace multiple teeth without the support of adjacent healthy teeth. Implants are fused to the jawbone and become a permanent false tooth but function and look just like your other teeth. .
