Popular Dental Treatments

Thanks to the recent advances in materials and technology, dental treatments are now more effective and efficient than ever before. Modern dentistry provides a wide range of procedures for both oral health and aesthetic needs, enabling patients to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. Here are some of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments at West Broad Dental in Falls Church VA.

1. Professional Cleaning

Getting your teeth professionally cleaned is a great way to maintain your oral health and keep your smile looking its best. During a professional cleaning, we use specialized instruments to remove any plaque, tartar buildup, and surface stains from your teeth. This helps reduce the risk of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and helps to prevent bad breath. We also polish your teeth, leaving you with a healthy, bright shine.

2. Whitening

Whitening is an aesthetic treatment that lightens the color of your teeth by removing discoloration. While there are many store-bought products on offer, professional whitening treatments provided by dentists are often more effective and longer-lasting. This makes it a popular treatment for those who don’t want to give up the foods and beverages that stain their teeth but still want a bright, white smile. Having your teeth professionally whitened also helps optimize the health of your teeth by improving oral hygiene.

3. Fillings

Fillings repair damage to individual teeth caused by decay, such as cavities—breaks in the outer enamel layer of the tooth. During a filling procedure, we fill the cavity to restore strength and protect it from further damage and infection. While the preparation involves some drilling, getting dental fillings is quick and painless. Dental fillings can be made from various materials, including composite materials that match the color of your teeth for an aesthetically pleasing look.

4. Crowns

Dental crowns – or caps – are a type of restorative treatment for teeth that are too badly damaged or decayed to be restored with a filling. A crown fits over the damaged tooth, covering its entire surface, and is cemented in place. This prevents further decay and restores the appearance and strength of the tooth. Porcelain is a popular choice for crowns because of its durability and closeness in color to natural teeth.

5. Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that’s fitted into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. Once in place, it acts as a secure anchor for a replacement tooth (usually a porcelain crown) that looks, functions, and feels just like a natural tooth. Dental implants are an effective option because they can replace a single tooth without affecting the surrounding healthy teeth, and secure a bridge or denture to replace multiple missing teeth. Dental implants can be life-changing and with the proper care, they can last a lifetime.

6. Veneers

A veneer is a thin porcelain-based covering that’s attached to the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are commonly used to achieve a whiter and more aesthetically pleasing smile than is achievable with other options. They can instantaneously improve the appearance of a single tooth or your entire smile. Veneers can correct an array of issues such as discoloration, chips, gaps between teeth, and even minor misalignments. Since they’re custom-made, veneers look and feel natural, and their results are instantaneous.If you’re interested in any of these popular dental treatments, request an appointment with West Broad Dental today.
