Are you someone that can’t get enough of the spa? Do you love a good massage? Perhaps, you ask for a massage whenever your birthday comes around. Why shouldn’t more things in life feel like a day at the spa? That’s the same way we feel! Why shouldn’t our patients feel like they are coming to a spa when they come in for their dental cleaning? Sure, the idea might sound a bit weird, but patients love their relaxing dental visit. If you want to combine the spa treatment with your next dental cleaning, then consider getting spa touch dentistry in Apopka.

Going to the Dentist Should be Relaxful!

We want our patients to feel comfortable coming to the dentist. It’s not surprising that a lot of people feel anxious and nervous when they come in for their appointment. Dr. Mark Halek, our Apopka, FL dentist, wants to remove all those negative feelings and transport you to a soothing world outside the dentist’s chair. We want you to feel like you just had a day at the spa. We value compassionate care here at our office, and we practice spa touch dentistry in Apopka with a gentle touch.
Before your cleaning begins, your Apopka spa touch dentist will place a warm, comforting eye wrap on you to cover and soothe your tired eyes. While the calming warmth of the wrap takes over, enjoy a relaxing massage from one of our dental chairs. Your back deserves some TLC!
Dr. Mark Halek also offers relaxing music and essential oils, which only help to enhance your spa touch dentistry experience. We want you to feel like royalty when you sit back in our dental chairs! Just because you are at your dentist’s office doesn’t mean it needs to feel like it. We believe your dental experience should be comforting every step of the way.
Additionally, Dr. Halek also offers a complimentary extra oral exam, offered with the use of gentle touch therapy. This exam is similar to a mini facial massage, and it’s the ideal way to end your dental appointment. You’ll feel rejuvenated and ready to tackle that laundry list of daily tasks when you leave our office. Not only that, but you’ll also be leaving with a sparkling, clean smile. We want all our patients to maintain healthy smiles that last a lifetime, and through spa touch dentistry in Apopka, we now have a comforting way to do just that.

When it comes time for dental procedures are you often anxious and fear going into the office?  With the advancement of laser dentistry, our Apopka dentist can help your anxieties go away. The availability of laser dentistry in Apopka allows us to help our patients feel at ease with comfort and safety. 
Through laser dentistry, a laser utilizes light energy to perform the procedure and can treat the targeted tissue while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected.  Using laser dentistry allows our dentist in Apopka, FL to perform some of the most precise procedures needed to improve your oral health care. 
Benefits of Using Laser Dentistry
When it comes to laser dentistry, the benefits are abundant.  Many patients enjoy the use of lasers in their procedures because of the ease and comfort that are commonly associated with it.  Some of the major benefits that are associated with laser dentistry include:
Sutures may not be required with procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers.
Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized.
Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
Minimization of bleeding.
Dental procedures may be performed quicker, more effectively and more comfortably with the growing popularity of laser dentistry.  Laser technology has been used in various types of medical procedures for years and continues to grow in this constant expanding dental industry. 
The use of laser dentistry in Apopka opens the door for dentists to perform a wide variety of dental procedures they may otherwise not be able to perform.  Dentists using lasers in procedures have become more adept at incorporating this technologically advanced precision into a number of common and not-so-common procedures. 
Visit our Apopka dentist, Dr. Mark Halek, for more information on the use of Laser Dentistry for your dental needs.  Your choice of a laser dentist may make you feel more comfortable and exhibit less anxiety during your treatments.
So you have any cracks, chips or spaces in your teeth that may cause you to be embarrassed of your smile?  At Spa Touch Dentistry we offer dental veneers as a cosmetic solution to help solve these dental imperfections.  Regardless of the reason for enhancing your smile, dental veneers can help cover-up many of your teeth problems.
Dental veneers are a very prevalent treatment in cosmetic dentistry, as they are used mainly for aesthetic purposes. Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations because they provide a more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size or shape without significantly altering your original tooth.  Used to cover the front surface of a tooth, veneers maintain the appearance and translucency of natural teeth.
How Can Veneers Enhance Your Smile?
Made of ultra-thin shells of ceramic or composite resin materials, veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth.  The procedure for placement of your veneers requires little to no anesthesia, which makes it an ideal choice for improving the appearance of your front teeth.
Veneers have the ability to mask undesirable defects, such as stained teeth by tetracycline or damaged due to an injury or as the result of a root-canal procedure.  If you have gaps between your front teeth; teeth that are chipped or worn; or discolored fillings in your front teeth, veneers in Apopka may be just the right procedure for your smile reconstruction. 
Regardless of the causes for your damaged teeth, dental veneers can solve your cosmetic dental issues including:
  • Worn enamel
  • Wear and tear
  • Uneven teeth
  • Gaps in your teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped and cracked teeth
What is the Veneers Process?
One of the most important aspects of the veneers process is your role.  Make sure that you take an active role in the design of your reconstructive smile because it is your smile you are changing and it should be the way you have always desired. 
Your teeth are prepared for the veneers by being lightly buffed to allow for the small additional thickness created by the veneer.  Generally, about a millimeter of your tooth is removed.  The removal may require a local anesthetic to avoid any pain.  Composite resin veneers tend to be done in one appointment and after the tooth is prepared, your dentist will carefully bond and sculpt the composite material onto your teeth.  In regards to ceramic veneers, a mold is first taken of your teeth.  The mold is then sent to the laboratory for fabrication, which may take several days. 
When your veneers are ready, our dentist in Apopka will place each veneer on your teeth to make sure they properly fit and to match the shade and color.  To apply your veneer, your tooth is cleaned and special cement is placed between the veneer and tooth to bond the two together. 
A consultation with our Apopka dentist will allow a proper treatment plan to be created in order to restore your smile to the way you have always desired.  Remember veneers are not for everyone so a visit to our office is necessary when deciding on the best solution for your smile enhancement.
