If you are looking for a dentist, give us a call at (757) 776-0254. We understand how frustrating it is for patients who need dental care and are unable to receive it in a timely fashion. In other cases, patients may need services that they cannot receive from their existing dentist. Some dentists do not use the latest technology and this inhibits them from providing patients with the best possible care.
In other situations, a dentist may be too busy to see patients fast enough. Whatever the reason for dissatisfaction with your current dentist, we encourage calling our office to see how we can be of assistance. We use modern technology to help our patients recover from dental damage and remain in the best possible oral health.
Some of the dental services we provide include:
#1. Dental crowns
When a tooth has become severely damaged or infected, it is necessary to remove the infected portion of the tooth, clean it and then to restore it. When much of the enamel is missing, the best way to do so is with a dental crown. We offer tooth-colored crowns in our dental office. Tooth-colored crowns provide patients with a restoration that allows for full use of their tooth with an entirely natural appearance.
This treatment is hugely beneficial and far superior to restoring teeth with a metal crown. Plus, in many situations, this makes it possible for patients to keep their teeth rather than have any damage or infection.
#2. Dental implants
For anyone who suffers tooth loss, it is important to replace teeth right away. Once a tooth falls out, the process of resorption will begin. Resorption is where the body leaches calcium from that area of the jawbone to use elsewhere. Once resorption starts, it can change the way that a person looks and put other teeth in jeopardy as well.
We suggest replacing missing teeth with dental implants because this is the only option that replaces the root and the tooth. Therefore, dental implants are the most durable and naturally behaving restoration for a patient. Mini dental implants are an alternative for anyone who does not have enough bone density to support an implant.
#3. Dental veneers
We use veneers to restore a patient's tooth after it becomes chipped or cracked. This is an excellent way to restore the functionality and appearance of a tooth without the need to place a dental crown. We also use this solution to improve the appearance of teeth for anyone who is looking to do something like close gaps between teeth or to cover dark stains.
#4 Treating gum health
In our dental office, we know how important healthy gums are to the longevity of teeth in general. Those who suffer from gum disease are prone to suffering from adult tooth loss so we make it a priority to attend to our patients' gum health. This can involve performing procedures like a dental deep cleaning when signs of gingivitis or gum disease are present.
These are only a few of the options that we offer. We treat each patient like an individual and so we only make specific recommendations after completing an examination. At that time, we can go over these and other options, discussing how they can improve your oral health or the appearance of your smile. Call our dental office at (757) 776-0254 and schedule an appointment today.
