Cosmetic Dentists in Falls Church VA

our restorative services include:

  • Periodontal maintenance: This type of cleaning goes deeper than routine cleaning, targeting periodontal pockets. Gum maintenance removes tartar and plaque from the space between gums and teeth and is recommended for those with early signs of periodontal disease.
  • Scaling and root planing: This type of deep cleaning removes plaque and tartar above and below the gum line and smooths roots to help gums reattach to teeth.
  • Bridges: A dental bridge is a permanent appliance that replaces a missing tooth or teeth. They are anchored to the surrounding teeth with crowns and matched in color. A bridge repair can aid eating and speaking.
  • Dental implants: Dental implants are tooth replacements anchored to the jaw bone and provide a permanent solution compared to dental bridges or removable artificial teeth. 
  • Crowns: To repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, or badly decayed, we use crowns to cap or cover the damaged tooth. These custom-made caps match the surrounding teeth. A crown can shield teeth from further damage and restore function, allowing you to chew comfortably.
  • Extractions: Our doctors do their best to help patients avoid extractions, but the procedure can sometimes be necessary to maximize oral health or remove damaged teeth prior to repairs.
  • Root Canals: A root canal is a treatment for infections in the tooth pulp, the innermost layer of your teeth, resulting from a deep cavity or cracked or damaged tooth. The treatment removes the inflamed pulp, disinfects the tooth, and places a crown over the tooth over a series of visits.
