Why invest in restorative dentistry?

You regain your teeth’s functionality when you get them restored. This indicates that you are able to talk and chew normally. Dentists are able to replicate the precise anatomical structure of the compromised teeth.

No one likes having a toothache, and when cavities are left untreated, it can result in more pain and money down the road. If dentists spot them before it’s too late, they could restore them with a simple filling (or a crown if the damage is too extensive) and save your from acute tooth pain.

Our experienced and caring team will make you smile again.

Restorative dentistry aims to recover your smile’s beauty and function. Every case is unique and requires different procedures, so once our dentist has examined your teeth and reached a diagnosis, they will discuss treatment alternatives. Some patients only need a simple filling, but if your case is more complex, our dentist will explain your options, and together, you will find the one that suits you best.

When treatments require local anesthesia, we understand how anxious some patients can feel about injections (and restorative treatments in general). That’s why we do our best to create a relaxing atmosphere. We use numbing gel before all injections and offer N20 (laughing gas) to patients who are particularly nervous or worried about dental procedures. We strive to make the appointment pain-free and comfortable for every patient.

Your teeth deserve a second chance. Book an appointment with our skillful dentist in Annandale, VA and discover how we can transform your smile.

Dentistry FAQs

The answers to the most commonly asked questions.
  • Should I have my tooth extracted instead of trying to save it?

    Unless strictly needed, no dentist would advise a patient to have a tooth extracted when there is still a chance to save it. Before doing any extraction, our dentist will first evaluate if there are any other viable options, like root canal treatments or fillings. Dentists can restore severely damaged teeth using materials and techniques that no one could have dreamed of only a few decades ago.

  • How can I replace a missing tooth?

    There are multiple options available to patients, but the gold standard in tooth replacement is dental implants. No other restoration achieves the same results in terms of functionality and aesthetics. However, we also offer alternatives that might suit more reduced budgets, like full or partial dentures or dental bridges.

  • How long does a crown last?

    It is hard to determine the exact lifespan of a crown, as it depends on multiple factors. But, with proper care, a patient can expect a dental crown to last up to 30 years.

  • Do I need a crown or a filling?

    That depends on how much structure the affected tooth has lost. We try to preserve as much dental tissue as possible, so a filling will always be our first choice. But when the damage is too extensive, or if the tooth has been root-filled, our team will place a dental crown.

  • What is the most popular material for fillings?

    Nowadays, the most frequently used restorative material is composite resin. Composite resin is a tooth colored material that closely mimics natural enamel’s texture, transparency, and shade. Composite restorations are durable, highly esthetic, and usually the restorative dentist’s top choice.

  • What is tooth wear?

    Tooth wear is the loss of external layers of the teeth due to natural or pathological wear down. It’s usually a consequence of night grinding or clenching, but sometimes other factors are involved, like diet, medical conditions (sleep apnea), or a problem with the patient’s bite. Our team can build affected teeth back up using composite resins or bonding and fit custom-made nightguards to prevent it from happening again.
