At Green Dentistry in San Francisco CA, we use the term holistic to describe our dentistry for one simple reason: with the influx of dentists using the term “general” to describe procedures that simply deal with dental symptoms – and not their root, overall causes – we had to come up with a new term that encompassed our mission. Holistic, though used by many entities to describe a host of topics, simply means “all-encompassing.” Like the term “general,” it aims to restructure the way we view dentistry by asking of both dentist and patient alike, “What are your priorities?”
If a patient’s priority is to simply look good, then a cosmetic dentistry clinic that aims to satisfy this need might feel perfectly suited. However, if you’re a patient that is looking for a practice that will take into account your overall health, medical history, diet, and general wellness before making any decisions concerning your dental health, our team is the right one for you!
With our holistic approach comes a need to stay at the vanguard of dental technology. We offer treatments that would have seemed like magic decades ago, but are now right at your fingertips. Examples include our Homeoblock™ orthodontic appliance, which works with your body to stimulate its natural healing ability and restore balance to your smile, and our top-of-the-line oral microbiome testing, which both checks for certain risk factors that contribute to conditions like gum disease and tooth decay, and identifies whether you are at increased risk for other crucial health concerns like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, oral cancer, and inflammation.
How To Achieve The Perfect Smile
At our practice, we do not think of the perfect smile as a celebrity smile. We think of it as a smile that is in balance with the rest of the body’s natural functions, can chew and speak properly, and has aesthetic consistency across the board. We do not believe, as other dentistry practices do, that we should impose a certain “signature look” on a person. Every smile is different, and we take into account facial structure, skin tone, and natural enamel shade before performing whitening treatments or applying porcelain veneers.
This way, when your restorations are in, you won’t only look better, but you’ll feel more balanced. Our team is trained in direct, empathetic communication and we prioritize both your aesthetics and your overall health.
