His offerings range from cosmetic dentistry to creating quality, custom dental restorations while you wait. No matter the condition of your smile, it’s good to have a quality dentist on your side. Consider these reasons why it's important to have a dentist that you can trust. 

Prevent Potential Dental Problems from Worsening 
One reason why it's important to have a dentist is to ensure that minor dental problems don't have a chance to develop. In many cases, a small issue like the beginning of a cavity can be fixed in minutes and give you many years of protection. Taking the time to go to the dentist for a simple one-hour checkup and cleaning could save you a lot of money, time and discomfort in the future.

Stop Periodontal Disease in its Tracks
One of the most concerning oral care issues that dentists treat is gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis). Your dentist can halt the symptoms of periodontal disease and bring your gums back to good health to avoid tooth loss. Solutions include scaling and root planing and non-surgical periodontal treatment.

Restore Damage to Your Smile 
When the teeth are damaged due to wear and tear, infection or injury, your dentist has the tools and treatments to repair them quickly and easily. Dr. Fontaine has a technology called CEREC that allows him to create dental restorations on the spot. The sooner you fix a damaged tooth, the better.

Keep Your Teeth Looking Healthy and Beautiful
When your teeth look good, you feel better about them and you’re more motivated to take care of them. Your dentist can help improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Popular treatments include teeth whitening, veneers, bridges and specialty dentures.
