Comprehensive Dentistry

Dr. Christopher Pellegrino - Hingham Dental Associates

Hingham dentist Dr. Christopher Pellegrino takes a comprehensive approach to oral health, combining all of the aspects of dentistry (preventive, restorative, cosmetic, and periodontal care) to help you enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile now and well into the future.

Preventive Dentistry

At Hingham Dental Associates, our philosophy isn’t to wait for problems to occur before we address them. We believe that being proactive is the best way to prevent small concerns from becoming big problems. For example, if we can catch a cavity early, when it’s still small, we can usually save a patient from needing more extensive dental treatment. In our experience, quality preventive care results in a healthier smile.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth? We can help! At Hingham Dental Associates we offer Dental Implants to help restore your smile. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture. Dental implant supported restorations are an ideal tooth replacement option because they look and function like a natural tooth. Our highly skilled staff periodontist, Dr. Valarie Smith has over 15 years of experience in placing dental implants. She works closely with Dr. Pellegrino using the most advanced materials and techniques to provide you with beautiful long lasting restorations.

Periodontal Care - Hingham Dental Associates

Periodontal (Gum) Care

According to the National Institutes of Health, half of Americans over age 35 currently have some degree of gum disease. The mild stage, known as gingivitis, is characterized by red,swollen gums that bleed every time you floss. If it’s caught early enough, gingivitis is completely reversible with in-office treatments and proper home care. Left undiagnosed, it can progress to more serious periodontal disease, which can result in tooth loss, infections, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Dr. Smith along with our Registered Dental Hygienists specialize in surgical and non- surgical periodontal care to help you achieve optimal oral health.
