Avoid Periodontal Disease with Gingivitis Treatment near Centreville, VA

Recently, when you look in the mirror, have you noticed that your gums are red and inflamed? Are they sensitive to the touch, or extremes of heat and cold? Do you find small amounts of blood on your toothbrush when you brush your teeth in the morning? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then it sounds like you could benefit from our gingivitis treatment near Centreville, VA.

Although none of the symptoms above are life-threatening, gingivitis is more than a mere annoyance. Left unchecked, it will eventually blossom into a much more serious condition: Periodontal disease. That’s something you don’t want to have to contend with. It’s the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults.

The reason comes down to plaque. No matter how often you brush and floss, over time, plaque is going to build up on your teeth. The longer plaque sits on your teeth, the more likely you are to develop cavities and develop gingivitis. Our recommendation is that you come in every six months for preventive care and a gingivitis treatment near Centreville, VA.

We’ll scrape the plaque off your teeth, give them a good polishing and inspect your teeth and gums for any problems that might be in their formative stages. If we find anything, we’ll map out a strategy with you to correct those issues and get you back to optimal oral health.

As important as gingivitis treatment near Centreville, VA is, it’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Once we’ve fixed that problem and any other issues you might be having, and if you’re not 100% happy with the quality and character of your smile, we can work with you to create a plan to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.

Already perfectly happy with your smile? Not a problem! Just know that we offer a full range of both general and cosmetic dentistry services, so if the day comes when you change your mind, we’ll be here for you.

If your smile could use some improvement, there are two great places to begin: Straightening your teeth and whitening your teeth. We offer a number of great options on both fronts. Where straighter teeth are concerned, if you’d rather not be stuck wearing conventional braces for two years or longer, you won’t have to. We can tell you more about our Six Month Smiles program and the Invisalign program to see if one of those might be a good fit for you.

If you’d like to have whiter teeth, we’ve got three great options you can choose from. Our Zoom! In-Office treatment is the one most people gravitate to because it’s so fast, convenient and effective, but we also offer the Whitening for Life program which is an at-home option, and for particularly deep, persistent stains, we can address those with the Kor Whitening System. A whole range of options to choose from!

There are two things people worry about a lot when planning a trip to the dentist, and both of them can keep them from seeking the treatments they need. The first is finding the time to do it. If you’ve got to miss work or use up a valuable vacation day, you’re a lot less likely to actually come in for your gingivitis treatment near Centreville, VA, even if you really need it and would benefit from it.

That’s why we keep our office open late several days a week; to minimize the need for missing work or having to use up vacation time! Currently, our office hours are as follows:

Monday: 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Tuesday: 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Wednesday: 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Thursday: 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Friday: 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Saturday: 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Sunday: Our office is closed on Sunday

The second big thing that keeps people from getting the treatments they need is that they’re worried about how to pay for it. We’ve worked hard on that front, and over time, have consistently expanded the list of dental insurance carriers we work with. As of now, that list includes:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Assurant
  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield
  • Carefirst
  • Cigna’s Total DPPO plan
  • Delta Dental
  • GEHA
  • Guardian
  • Lincoln Financial Group
  • Metlife
  • Principal
  • Sun Life
  • And all United Concordia dental plans, save for those offered exclusively to active military members, who get their care on-base

Didn’t see your insurance company on the list above? Not a problem. In addition to those, we also accept both the Citi Health Card and Care Credit. We even accept payments online via Paypal!

But what if you don’t have any insurance at all? That can seem like a deal-breaker when it comes to getting the care you need, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve created our very own Platinum Membership Program and can enroll you in that so you’ll have access to all of the services we offer at discounted rates.

Our goal is to do more than just fix whatever dental problem you’re having right now. We want to be your dental practice of choice for as long as you live in the area. Give our office a call today or stop by if you’re in the area. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have and put your mind at ease. We can hardly wait to meet you!
