Today, there is no reason not to have an attractive, healthy smile. Every patient is an individual and requires a specific treatment plan just for him or her. Here are just a few ways to achieve a spectacular result.
A porcelain veneer is a very thin facing that is bonded to the front surface of the tooth. The procedure is minimal and sometimes there is no removal of tooth enamel. They are a good treatment option for spacing, chipped and worn teeth. This process also allows you to change the color of congenially stained teeth.
During the bonding process, tooth-colored filling material is glued to the tooth. This is usually used to close gaps (spaces) between teeth, and it usually-lasts for 5 years or longer.
Bleaching, which is in fact oxidation, can lighten the color of your teeth. We provide in-office bleaching sessions, after which you can continue to enhance the bleaching process with take-home trays.
Enamelplasty is where we re-contour the enamel of the teeth. This helps correct small chips, pointed teeth, and fix places that start to wear out due to age or bruxism (grinding your teeth). It is a very conservative procedure and usually requires no anesthesia.
Today, the art and science of endodontics has improved greatly. It is often the only option for saving a badly decayed or abscessed tooth. We specialize in root canals and strive our very best to make this procedure as comfortable and convenient for our patient.
We have many ways to replace and restore teeth. When teeth weaken or break due to decay or old, large fillings, a porcelain crown can be placed to restore them to look and perform normally. A porcelain crown is most often applied to a tooth after a root canal has been performed.
Lost teeth can be replaced in a couple of ways by either a fixed bridge can be placed in an area where a few teeth are missing, or implants can be used.
In cases of multiple tooth loss, a denture or a partial denture is make so your smile still looks as natural as ever.
Periodontics or treatment of the gums is often preventable with routine dental cleanings and exams. It is estimated that 80% of people have some form of chronic gum disease. Dr. Morch can help you maintain healthy gums for life.
It is considered ideal to take kids to a dentist by the age of three. We try to make it a positive experience for the young ones. Initial visits consist of polishing their teeth with fluoride, and familiarizing them with the clinic. It is so important to teach our children that visiting the dentist can be a positive experience from a young age.
We recommend that children be seen every 6 months to prevent any major dental problems. Contact us today, or call us directly, at 703-878-7969 in Woodbridge or 540-785-2558 in Fredericksburg, for more information on children’s dentistry.
