What a Family Dentist Can Do for You

If you brush twice a day and floss on the regular, you're on a great path for a lifetime of healthy teeth. However, to keep your smile at its absolute best, you need to visit a family dentist twice a year for professional cleanings and examinations, as well.

Here at Carmel Dental Group in Carmel., IN, your family dentist, Cami Hovda, offers everything you need for a healthy smile, from deep cleanings to whitening—read on to learn more.

Cavity Prevention

Your family dentist has the special tools to scrape away the tartar and plaque that can lead to cavities. While brushing at home is essential, your toothbrush can't remove the sticky, stubborn film that causes cavities. At our Carmel office, we can reach the nooks and crannies between your teeth and along the gum line where plaque tends to build up, preventing cavities from developing in the first place.


Although at-home whitening options like strips, trays, and paint-on gels can be relatively effective ways of whitening stained or yellowed teeth, professional whitening treatment options can take your smile makeover to another level in a fraction of the time. We use a higher level of peroxide in our whitening procedure, erasing stains from wine, yellowing from age or discoloration from smoking.

Gum Disease Prevention

When left untreated, plaque can start to build up and spread, leading to decay. Severe decay can lead your teeth to loosen or fall out, and leave your gums vulnerable to disease. Your family dentist will check for any signs of gum disease and provide treatment if needed.

Dental Repair

If you have chipped, cracked, decayed or crooked teeth, we offer a number of restorative dentistry procedures that can help treat the issue. Dental implants, dentures, and bridges are options for missing teeth, and for poorly spaced teeth, we can fit you with braces or dental veneers. Whether aesthetic or essential, we can provide the dental treatment you need.
