General Dentistry

In today’s world, you’re going to need more than just brushing and flossing to maintain your oral health. Tarpon Shores Dental likes to see patients regularly in order to keep an eye on the state of their mouths! For even the most healthy patients, the American Dental Association recommends routine visits twice a year to prevent possible complications from developing, and we agree. Our Sarasota, Venice, and Englewood, Florida offices can check for decay during a normal checkup. Please call Tarpon Shores Dental to learn how to improve your dental hygiene and care today.

Restorative Dentistry

We know that the years aren’t always kind to your teeth. However, Tarpon Shores Dental can remove the evidence that age or accidents have left. Restorative dentistry procedures are regularly performed at our practice for patients who reside in Sarasota, Venice, Englewood, and the nearby Florida communities. For patients with missing teeth, beautiful, esthetic dentures or partial dentures can be an effective solution. For a more permanent-feeling solution, we can also place and restore dental implants as another option. The team at Tarpon Shores Dental is also very experienced with the traditional dental bridge as an option, as well. Restorative dentistry procedures can return damaged teeth to a state of health, function, and beauty.

Save time with CEREC One-Visit Crowns!

If time is important to you, a chipped or broken  tooth can really create a problem. Leaving the tooth untreated for any length of time can also lead to other dental problems, which is why Tarpon Shores Dental wants to see you in your time of need sooner rather than later.  At our Sarasota and Venice locations we offer CEREC one-visit crowns. Normally, patients who take advantage of CEREC one-visit crowns don’t even have to return for a second appointment! We can create and place a durable porcelain dental restoration during your single appointment.

Tarpon Shores Dental will assist you with all your dental needs. We see patients from Sarasota, Venice, Englewood, and the surrounding Florida communities. Please contact us today to schedule your appointment. If visiting the dentist makes you a bit nervous, ask our staff about anti-anxiety dentistry. We try to provide a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere. If you’re new to our practice, please visit the new patient page.
