We not only want to repair damage to your smile, but prevent it from occurring in the first place.

If Dr. Pamela Crumrine, our caring dentist, feels it necessary, fluoride application may be suggested at other times as well. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that most people receive from food and water. However, we utilize fluoride in Beaver, Pennsylvania for added protection for your smile.
Fluoride is an important mineral in strengthening your teeth against tooth decay. It works in two ways. In children, for whom it is especially vital, fluoride mixes with growing enamel to strengthen the tooth; for adults, fluoride acts as a shield on the surface of your enamel to prevent build-up and decay.
There are many ways fluoride can be applied to your teeth. Most often, fluoride is provided through a topical application, where it is delivered in a dental product that is applied directly to the surface of your teeth. For topical application, fluoride can be delivered through:
- Mouth rinses
