Our dentists can alleviate the pain and repair your damaged teeth so you can eat, speak, and smile like normal again.
Restorative Dental Procedures We Offer
Patients in Centreville, VA can get back to pain-free and fully-functional oral health with our selection of restorative dentistry procedures, including:
Crowns are a custom-made replacement that looks and functions exactly like your natural tooth while covering and protecting the remaining tissue. In cases of damage and decay, the dentist cleans out any damaged tissue and prepares the tooth. The crown is specially-molded to fit precisely over the remaining tissue. This protects the tooth from further damage and restores your bite and aesthetics.
An outstanding long-term solution to tooth loss is a dental implant. In the space of the missing tooth, the dentist implants a metal post through your gum tissue and into the jawbone. After it’s healed, they’ll attach an abutment, onto which they affix a crown to replace the lost tooth. It’s a two-stage process, and when we finish, you have a permanent replacement that fits and functions like a natural tooth and blends right in.
If the tooth pulp inside your tooth becomes infected, a root canal is necessary to save the tooth. During this procedure, the dentist cleans out the infected nerves and tooth pulp. Then, we fill the space and seal up the tooth with a crown. After recovery, your dental pain from the infection will be gone, and your tooth can remain where it is.
For multiple teeth or a whole row that are missing, dentures give you back your ability to chew, speak, and smile with natural-looking removable or implant-held replacement teeth. We take precise impressions of your mouth and fabricate highly-realistic dentures that function like your natural teeth. The liners are created to fit perfectly over your gums. With implant dentures, the dentist implants the posts into the jawbone. After a healing period, your specially-crafted dentures attach to the posts for a secure fit in your mouth.
