Dr. Hart and Virginia Biological Dentistry offer a number of solutions to fix most any aesthetic concerns. When a smile is less than perfect, patients may become self-conscious about their appearance whenever they smile, laugh, and socialize. Patients can take charge of the way their smile looks and achieve beautiful, dazzling results with the help of a cosmetic dentist. Below are just a few of the most common restorative procedures available for new and existing patients who are ready to get more from their smile!
When imperfections arise, patients may want to cover their natural teeth, enhancing their overall looks. Porcelain veneers are thin restorations made to bond over the front of a natural tooth. They hide problems such as misalignment, discoloration, and damage.
Bonding is a great alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite resin reshapes a tooth or covers imperfections. Bonding doesn’t last as long as porcelain veneers, but provides patients with a fast and affordable solution to aesthetic concerns.
Dental crowns protect or restore a natural tooth by covering it with lifelike porcelain. Crowns are also the “false teeth” that cover dental implants and replace missing teeth to restore healthy appearance and function.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth. Adjacent teeth are used for support. Bridges offer a more permanent alternative to removable partial dentures.
Bleaching stained teeth enamel is a fast way for patients to dramatically enhance their smiles. Dr. Hart offers both in-office power bleaching and take-home whitening kits, which provide superior results to over-the-counter treatments.
Full and partial dentures available through Virginia Biological Dentistry provide a removable restoration for temporary use until patients choose a more permanent solution. Full dentures replace an entire arch, while partials replace one or more teeth within an arch.
Dr. Hart’s clear braces are a less visible alternative to conventional orthodontia.
Missing teeth can be replaced permanently with dental implants. Surgically placed into the jawbone for strength and stability, implants restore a few teeth or a mouthful with either crowns or full dentures.
