Crowns are meant to protect the part of the tooth that is seen above the gum line. They are placed there to strengthen the tooth or to enhance its appearance or size. They are also used to secure a bridge or finish a dental implant. There are a quite few different kinds of crowns available, each serving a specific purpose. Our dentist can advise you on whether or not you will need a crown depending on the type of treatment you are receiving.
Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums. Daily preventive care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop. This is much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress. During your regular checkup we will give you an overview of your oral hygiene.
For people with a missing tooth or even several missing teeth, dental implants can seem like a miracle. They are a wonderful tooth replacement option, which avoids the frustration of dealing with bridges and dentures. Once in place they maintain normal jaw function and look very natural.
I just left there office 20 minutes ago to get a rotted wisdom extracted and let me just say, they are AMAZING!!!!! The cost was reasonable, the staff were awesome and genuine and I felt NOTHING! I went to Kool Smiles last year for a molar and I felt everything. I felt my nerves getting twisted and my 5 year old daughter witnessed her mom writhing in pain with blood gushing out my mouth. Such a drastic difference here!! I can't tell you guys how amazing this experience was! Quick and painless with an attentive staff! Will be my permanent Dentistry! Thank you guys!!
I have been seeing Dr. Shah for YEARS. I hate to admit it, but I went through 6 or 7 dentists before her and no one has ever been as attentive. The staff is all awesome, everyone there is like a huge family, and you can tell because of how well everyone works together. As long as Glen Allen Dentistry is around, I will be a loyal patient to them!
