multigenerational family | Edina MN Dentist

Keeping your teeth healthy and your smile beautiful and healthy-looking is essential—for your appearance, health, and self-esteem.

Whether you need a routine dental examination and tooth cleaning, a tooth-colored filling to stop tooth decay in its tracks, or more comprehensive dental procedures such as root canals, dental crowns, tooth extractions, periodontal therapy, and dental implants, your Edina dentist at 50th and France Dental Care has the knowledge and experience to provide a superior dental experience.

Preventive Dental Care in 55424

The best way to keep your teeth healthy and strong is to prevent problems before they begin, and the best way to do this is through regular examinations and dental cleanings. A professional tooth cleaning with a trained dental hygienist keeps those hard-to-reach areas around your gum line, between teeth, and at the back of your mouth clean and reduces the risk of developing decay.

Regular dental examinations at least once every six months also allow Drs. Anderson, Flynn, and Holm to catch problems early, while they can still be resolved with conservative dental treatment options. This saves you both money and discomfort down the road and helps keep your overall oral health in good shape. Our office uses digital x-ray technology to diagnose and treat your teeth.

Digital x-rays allow your dentist to get a closer look at what's going on with your teeth and catch small problems early. The digital x-rays offer a more precise picture with up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional dental x-rays, meaning it's both safer for our patients and more effective as a diagnostic tool. We offer everything from preventive dentistry in Moline to general dentistry services. Our dental treatments and oral health procedures are designed to keep your teeth and gums healthy and to take care of any dental issues that may arise.

What Are General Dentistry Services?

Your smile is a big part of you. It defines you. It is your signature trademark. That's why it's essential that you take excellent care of your teeth and gums, so your smile reflects your happiness and health. At 50th and France Dental Care, we provide our Edina patients with the choice of a wide array of dental services and procedures to keep their teeth and gums clean, healthy, and beautiful. All our standard dental procedures are geared towards preserving your beautiful natural teeth for as long as possible, keeping your oral health up, and keeping you attractive and feeling great. 

Some of our standard general dentistry procedures include:

Dental Bonding—Also known as tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding corrects imperfections in your smile such as chipped teeth, stains, misshapen teeth, gapped teeth, and cracked teeth.

Dental Crowns—Dental crowns are a dental prosthesis that covers the whole tooth, giving it more protection and stability. Dental crowns allow your tooth to retain its original shape, prevents bacteria from entering and causing tooth decay, and improves the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns can also anchor dental bridges in place, and they are the visible part of a dental implant.

At 50th and France Dental Care, we offer same-day CEREC dental crowns for emergency dental restorations or for patients who do not want to wait the typical time for their customized dental crowns.

Dental Exams and Cleanings—Part of your preventative dental care, regular dental check-ups allow your Edina dentist to keep track of any dental changes, notice any abnormalities that can lead to future oral health issues, and screen for oral cancer. The dental cleaning removes tartar and polishes your teeth. This should be done at least every six months, although many dentists recommend more frequent dental visits.

Periodontal Treatment—Most Americans find themselves victim to this silent disease, but daily brushing and flossing along with regular dental cleanings can prevent or cure gum disease before it attacks the tooth, gums, and bone. In its early stages, gum disease is easily reversible. However, once bacteria gets below the gum line, it will need professional dental intervention.

Porcelain Veneers—Many patients enjoy the benefits of veneers, thin shields that cover the front surface of your tooth. This is an excellent solution to chipped, cracked, crooked, gapped, misshapen, and badly stained teeth.

Dental Sealants—If your teeth have deep grooves or if you have a difficult time reaching your back teeth, you may consider dental sealants. Sealants are painted on to the surface of your tooth and harden to protect your tooth from bacteria, decay, and infection. Dental sealants can help save money by preventing major dental issues.

Professional Teeth Whitening—Is your smile healthy, but not as bright as you’d like? We offer at-home professional bleaching kits or a quick in-office whitening that you can do during your lunch hour. At-home whitening kits include custom-fabricated dental trays that your Edina dentist creates for you. It’s important to have customized trays, so the bleach doesn’t leak out and affect your gums. If you have yellow or badly stained teeth, we can lift the stains and give you the whitest smile possible.

Dental Extractions—At 50th and France Dental Care, we do everything we can to save your tooth. However, there are times when a tooth extraction is the best action to protect your other teeth and maintain your oral health. A dental extraction means the removal of a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. While there are many reasons why a tooth extraction might be necessary, we can do the procedure as painlessly and ensure comfort. We also offer smile restoration treatments to restore the absent tooth

Your Edina dentist may recommend more than one dental procedure to heal oral health issues. 

Beautiful Tooth-Colored Fillings

Cavities are holes in the strong outer enamel of your teeth created by bacteria. Even patients with excellent brushing and flossing routines can be susceptible to the occasional cavity. What's essential is treating these cavities before they can get bigger or penetrate deeper into the tooth and cause more problems, like abscesses.

Our Edina dental office uses composite resin fillings, a natural-looking composite resin that your dentist matches to your teeth. This allows us to remove the decay from the tooth and fill the hole with a beautiful restoration that's virtually invisible. Composite fillings are durable and long-lasting, giving you a restoration that will last you for years.

Comprehensive Dental Options

For your convenience, we also offer a wide range of oral treatments to meet your needs. Whether you need a root canal treatment, oral surgery, dental implant placement, or cosmetic dental treatment, chances are we can perform it right in our Edina dental office, rather than referring you to someone you don't know.

If a referral does occur, we send you to our most trusted colleagues and friends. Your comfort and oral health are our top priorities, and we have extensive and ongoing training in the latest dental technologies to make sure our patients get the best dental treatment available.

We also understand the convenience of getting all your dental needs met in one accessible location, which saves our patients from having to research multiple dental offices for a variety of services.
