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.
Every visit. ..the staff is helpful and polite....I have seen both doctors there and they both are wonderful. ..this coming from a patient that has not seen a dentist is years...the doctors explain each procedure and take extra care that you are comfortable and without pain....I would recommend this office to anyone
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!
