At the Smile Center, we pride ourselves on our advanced restorative dentistry techniques. These procedures help our patients achieve and maintain improved oral health with greater functionality. In addition to improved health and function, these procedures can also improve the aesthetics of our patients’ smiles. The vast and surprising history of dentistry has influenced our dentists at the Smile Center in Virginia Beach, VA.
As you can see, concerns with dental health date back much farther than you might have thought. The progression of the dental profession has led to countless advancements in dentistry. Dental treatments have progressively become more comfortable with the use of various forms of anesthesia. Over the years, restorative treatments have trended toward more natural appearances as well.
While restoring health and functionality has always been a top priority in dentistry, the appearance of our teeth has grown in importance as well. Thanks to previous dentists who suggested white enamel for fillings and porcelain teeth, we now have natural tooth-colored fillings. We also offer a wide range of cosmetic and restorative procedures that use porcelain, such as crowns and bridges, as well as veneers.
With the numerous advancements in dental technology, procedures are shorter and more comfortable than ever. We also have a better understanding of oral health and the effects complications can have on your physical health. Gum disease, for example, can lead to more serious conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Understanding this correlation between oral and physical health allows us to provide more comprehensive preventive and restorative treatment for our patients.
Whether you need a simple cleaning and exam or you are suffering from more serious complications like tooth decay or gum disease, our skilled dentists can help. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment.
