RESTORATIVE

BRIDGES:
say buh-bye to the gaps

 

We know that a gap between your teeth can be embarrassing and unsightly. Now you can forget about that because the Smiles at Reston Town Center cosmetic dentists have the solution for you: dental bridges.

A bridge is a great dental solution for replacing missing teeth and it can be constructed natural-looking materials. There are fixed bridges or a removable bridge. Once our trained dentists evaluate your teeth and gums, we will decide which type of bridge is best suited for your dental needs.

The process of getting a bridge is kind of simple. A few appointments are typically needed to get a dental bridge. Our dentists need to prepare the anchor teeth. In order to do this, some of the tooth structure from the teeth on one or both sides of the gap is removed. This allows enough room for the crowns to be placed. Next, we need to make digital scan impressions of your teeth. The scans will be sent to the lab in order to digitally design and create your customized bridge.

In the meantime, you wear a temporary one that we customize for you.

At a subsequent appointment, the temporary bridge will be removed and the new, customized bridge will be placed.

And we’re done! You will be able to laugh loud and smile big. How does that sound?

DENTAL CROWNS:
the royal treatment for your smile

Do you need to restore a cracked tooth or filling, a big cavity, or a worn down tooth? If so, our dental crowns are the best and longest-lasting solution for you.

First we take digital scanning pictures instead of impressions because here at Smiles at Reston Town Center our dentists utilize cutting-edge equipment called CAD-CAM scan technology, allowing us to eliminate the entire process of taking impressions for crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges.

If we need to make impressions, we just take scans of your tooth with the iTero scanner in a matter of minutes, without the sticky gooey mess and hassle of the impressions.

This process makes us very proud. This is the newest type of dental technology in the Northern Virginia area and we were one of the first offices in the Reston area to offer it.

Once the scans of your teeth are captured, they are sent to our laboratory so they can digitally design, customize, and create your crowns precisely and beautifully based upon our dentists detailed, customized prescription.

We use this digital technology to create beautiful, natural-looking crown restorations, paying careful to several factors, including: tooth shape, length, size, the bite, and of course the color.

With digitally fabricated, customized restorations, your crowns will be durable and fit like a glove. Crowns strengthen weak or cracked teeth. With proper at-home care and healthy oral care habits, and a healthy bite, you can look forward to long-lasting crowns and restorations.

ROOT CANALS:
fix it don’t pull it

Most people are terrified at the thought of a root canal. They have a bad reputation. However, our experienced dentists will make your root canal procedure as painless as possible so you have nothing to be afraid of, explaining each step along the way.

When teeth become damaged due to deep decay, fractures or trauma; the tooth may be in jeopardy. When these things happen to your tooth, harmful bacteria may be able to enter the root and cause an abscess or infection of the bone and/or tooth nerve. An infection due to this kind of damage can greatly threaten your health.

But what is it?
A root canal is a reparative procedure that treats the pulp and nerves at the center of the tooth.

The key to an easy root canal is speed, precision and efficiency. Our experienced dentists often use 3D Cone-Beam CBCT Imaging to diagnose your need for a root canal. Rotary endodontics is exclusively used at Smiles of Reston Town Center, meaning that an electrically-powered instrument is used to perform the root canal treatment which replaces the old-school/traditional stainless-steel manual files. Rotary root canal instruments can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway.

In addition, quality sedative dentistry techniques can be used to ensure minimal pain. Patients can choose between nitrous oxide laughing gas, oral sedation or IV sedation.
You will get the safest and most effective sedatives possible so you will barely feel a thing while you have this procedure.

Even if you are hesitant about receiving a root canal, remember that if an infection such as this goes untreated, you will be undergoing more pain and inflicting more damage on your body. If you need a root canal, choose our top-quality dentists.

DENTAL IMPLANTS:
the rock solid amazing solution your smile needs

Are you missing a tooth? More than one? Does this make you feel self-conscious? There is a solution.

Dental implants can completely transform your life and your smile. With quality implants, you will be able to look in the mirror and face the day with confidence knowing that your smile looks its best.

A missing tooth is nothing to be ashamed of. Whether you’ve lost a tooth due to an accident or oral hygiene mistakes, you can correct this process. Accidents to our teeth do happen. Oral hygiene is not always easy and sometimes tooth decay can sneak up on you, causing irreversible damage that isn’t recognized until it’s too late.

Implants can correct these problems and can give you a radiant smile.
At our office, we offer solutions for people who are missing all their teeth either all-on-5 or all-on-6 full mouth restorations. That means we can place 5 or 6 dental implants in a fully edentulous jaw, along with a non-removable, titanium hybrid denture. It looks amazing.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that act and feel like natural teeth. They are created using biocompatible titanium screws. These screws act as the post, or root, of your tooth.

Implants have the same durability as natural tooth enamel. They are strong and resilient, so you will not have to worry about chewing or speaking. They are natural looking and very aesthetically pleasing.

We know you will absolutely love your newly enhanced smile.

DENTURES: not your Grandma’s dentures Another option for all or some of your missing teeth are removable dentures or removable partial dentures and our dentists at Smiles at Reston Town Center can restore your smile to make it look beautiful once again. _Immediate Dentures: A Complete, Convenient Smile This type of denture is typically placed on the same day that your teeth are removed. A lot of patients love this option because they leave our office with a complete smile on the same day. The process of removing your tooth/teeth is easy and relatively painless, especially due to the fact that we offer sedation dentistry. Another benefit of immediate dentures is the fact that we can digitally custom design your smile to the color shape and shape you desire. This helps produce the amazing smile you deserve. _Partial Dentures: A Removable Solution “Partials” (as a lot of people call them) are another option for those who are missing a few teeth but don’t have good jawbone for dental implants. They are a great solution for patients who still have some of their natural teeth. Nowadays partial dentures have a natural, beautiful appearance. They can be made metal-free which adds to the aesthetic and comfort factor. Additionally, metal/acrylic partials are strong and durable since they are made from a metal base. Patients like partial dentures because they can be removed at night so you can rest comfortably. Increased self-esteem and self confidence are the main reasons why our patients choose dentures or partials. Their smile is now more attractive than ever.
