Here’s a snapshot of the services offered with our best restorative dentistry in Chester, VA:

Dental fillings

Okay, you’ve just received the bad news that you have a cavity. Nobody wants to be told this, but if your dentist says you’ve got one, we can stop the decay from causing any additional damage by placing a dental filling there. We offer a wide range of different fillings, including amalgam (silver), gold, composite resin (tooth-colored), and porcelain (tooth-colored), depending on your needs. This simple procedure doesn’t take very long to complete. You’ll return to your great smile in no time!

Same-day dental crowns

Dental crowns cover the “crown” of a tooth, acting as a cap, and that’s how they came about their name. We utilize them to restore decayed, worn down, cracked, and broken teeth. And we always make sure they’re designed to look and fit naturally for you!

Fixed and removable bridges

In the event that you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge actually bridges the space to restore you to a stunning, natural-looking smile. It also makes it easier for you to eat and speak naturally and prevents your other surrounding teeth from drifting into the open space. A bridge also ensures you have the proper bite alignment. Chester Family Dentistry offers fixed bridges as well as removable bridges. The first is anchored in place by crowns on either side. The second is attached to the surrounding teeth with a metal framework. Dental bridges are quite durable and should last for years, but you may need to have them re-cemented due to normal wear.

Root canal therapy

Chances are, you’ve heard some inaccurate stories about what a root canal entails. Primarily, that people feel a lot of discomfort. But that’s just not the case with modern root canal therapy. This procedure is actually an effective way to remove an infection (the real thing that’s causing you pain) and helps save your tooth while doing so! We call that a success story. During the procedure, we remove any damaged tissue, clean out the area, and seal the tooth from further infection. If you’ve noticed a toothache, tender or swollen gums, or unusual discoloration, it’s best to see a dentist so they can step in before the condition gets worse.

Dental implants

There are plenty of reasons why you may need a dental implant. Maybe you just want to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth permanently. You definitely don’t want your jawbone to shrink because of missing teeth, which it can do without the root of a natural tooth present. Dental implants are a great solution to this problem. They’re made up of a small post that acts like a tooth root and a natural-looking restoration on top. Many people say that they’re the next best thing to their natural teeth. 

Dentures

If you’ve lost multiple teeth or have had a tooth extracted, that doesn’t mean you’ll never have a great smile again. That’s not even close to being true! We offer full conventional dentures and partial dentures. Our team can stabilize them with dental implants so that they fit securely in place. If you’re just not sure what you need, there’s no reason t to worry. Simply visit us to discuss our restorative dentistry in Chester, VA, and we will decide together your best option to restore your mouth to full, natural form, giving you back a more youthful appearance, while allowing you to eat and speak with ease again.
