Do you want to repair damaged teeth but fear how the repairs will stick out? Thankfully, there are ways to restore your smile with “invisible” dental restorations. Call us today at 703-552-2530 to schedule your next appointment.
What Could Go Wrong With Your Smile
An old car is inevitably more damaged than a brand-new car. That’s just the way life works. The older things get, the more likely they get damaged. The same is true for your teeth. By this age, your teeth could have problems like:
- Lost teeth
- Crooked teeth
All of these look bad, and they can hurt your dental health. You need restorative dentistry from Dr. Laura Ki to fix these problems before they get worse. Call Dr. Ki today and schedule an appointment for restorative dentistry.
Dental Restorations WIth Dr. Laura Ki
However, no one wants dental restorations that stick out like a sore thumb. Here are a few of the restorative dentistry treatments you can get that will blend in with your smile.
TOOTH-COLORED DENTAL FILLINGS
A generation ago, most people got silvery metal fillings when they had a cavity. Metal fillings work, mind you. It’s just that metal sticks out in your smile. Dental technology has changed, and Dr. Ki has paid attention.
By calling our Fairfax, VA dental office, you can repair a cavity by getting a tooth-colored filling instead. It restores your teeth just like a metal filling, but it will blend in with your smile. Dr. Ki has been repairing teeth like this for years, giving her the experience to use tooth-colored fillings correctly.
The same bacteria behind cavities can get inside your tooth. When this happens, your tooth gets infected and becomes very painful. Believe it or not, a root canal from Dr. Laura Ki is not painful! It removes the infection, saving the tooth. Then a dental crown is placed over the tooth to make sure it’s strong. Once in place, people will never know you had a root canal done.
Call us today at 703-552-2530 to schedule a root canal. Without this treatment, a tooth might need to be removed entirely. With local anesthetic and Dr. Ki’s expertise, your root canal can be comfortable.
Cracks, chips, and similar damage hurt your smile. Not only do they look bad, they can grow worse over time with all the chewing you do every day. Damaged enamel can also let pressure reach the nerve endings inside the tooth, causing painful chewing.
That’s why you need to call our Fairfax, VA dental office today and schedule an appointment for dental crowns. These are caps custom-made for each tooth they cover. When placed, they seal up damaged spots so they cannot get worse. Dental crowns also look just like healthy, natural teeth, so they’re practically invisible when placed. Dr. Ki has helped many people over the years with dental crowns, giving her practical experience to match her education.
It’s hard not to notice when you’re missing a tooth. That dark space stands out among your white teeth. A lost tooth can also be a health risk. Food collects in that space, and your other teeth can start to move without the support from the missing tooth.
Call us today and replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. This is as close regrowing a lost tooth as technology allows. It will look completely natural in your smile. Dr. Ki has extensive training in placing dental implants. With her help, your smile can look complete and natural once again.
Even if you had braces as a teen, your teeth could be a bit crooked these days. That’s because your teeth are never locked in place permanently. Accidents, injuries, and just years of use can push your teeth out of alignment.
By calling today, you can make an appointment to straighten your teeth with Invisalign. These are not braces! They’re a series of smooth plastic trays that fit over your teeth. They’re clear, so once worn, they’re almost impossible to see.
