Norfolk, VA Restorative Dental Services
We customize our restorative dentistry treatments to your particular needs, goals as well as your budget. Our dentists work one-on-one with patients to build custom treatment plans that align with their oral health goals and budget. We offer the range of restorative dentistry necessary to meet your needs and bring back your natural smile. Our restorative dental services in Norfolk include:
Porcelain veneers are a type of tooth-colored dental restoration that our dentist places on the front surface of teeth. They can enhance the look of teeth and sometimes close gaps between teeth! They consist of a ceramic material that the dentist bonds to the front and sides of the damaged tooth. We can use porcelain veneers on any tooth, but they are most commonly for the front teeth because they show when people talk or smile. To learn more, see Porcelain Veneers.
Dental implants are a modern and proven way to replace missing teeth that is both affordable and effective. The dentist can complete the procedure in two stages. The first stage is the implantation of the titanium post which will fuse with the jawbone. In the second stage, the dentist attaches an artificial tooth to this post to complete the dental prosthetic. To learn more about the dental implant process, see Dental Implants.
Composite Tooth Bonding & Fillings
Composite bonding is a tooth repair technique that fills in gaps from tooth decay, chipped teeth, and cracks in teeth.
The process of composite bonding begins with the dentist removing the decayed or damaged part of the tooth. The dentist then cleans and shapes the surface of the tooth before applying a thin layer of composite resin to it. This resin hardens into a filling that our dentist can match with your natural tooth color and appearance. Learn more about tooth bonding and fillings here: Dental Filling.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy (or endodontic therapy) is a dental procedure that we perform to remove diseased tissue inside your painful tooth. The procedure begins with the dentist administering a local anesthetic in order to numb the area. Then he drills a small hole into the root of the tooth. Next, the dentist uses special instruments to clean out any infected or dead tissue from inside of the root.
The goal of this procedure is for it to be successful, meaning that it does not need to be repeated in future visits and does not cause any pain for the patient. To learn more about our root canal procedure, see Root Canals.
Replacing Missing Teeth using Dental Implants
If you are missing teeth, especially a significant amount, Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley will recommend dental implant-secured restorations. Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. They actually replace the root system of your teeth, setting them apart from other teeth replacement options such as dentures and bridges.
Teeth implants have a very high success rate and with advances in dental technology, almost anyone can qualify for them. Dental implants allow patients to eat, speak and smile naturally again.
In most cases, Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley can perform all phases of the dental implant process in their Norfolk, VA area dental office. However, we may need to refer complex cases to a periodontist or oral surgeon. Our most popular option is the All-on-4 Implant Technique, which allows for the immediate replacement of missing teeth with an implant denture.
What to Expect with Restorative Dentistry
Restoring function and cosmetic appeal to your smile begins with an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan. Each patient case is different. Dr. Sinclair begins every dental restoration case with a comprehensive and through oral health exam. He will examine your teeth, gums, bite, face and neck at his Virginia Beach, VA dental office.
After the exam, he may recommend a series of treatments. Treatments may include preventive, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. If you require a full-mouth restoration, our helpful office staff will help you schedule all your appointments and answer any questions that you may have. Using modern dental software, top-quality materials, and state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Sinclair can restore your self-confidence and the natural beauty of your smile.
