Recent advances in the field of tooth restoration and reconstruction have made fixing chipped or broken teeth a more viable option by drastically improving the strength of the teeth through ceramic augmentation. SmilePerfectors is licensed to perform the Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) Dentistry in Tysons Corner and other locations. This technology allows our dentists to use 3-D modeling technology to sculpt a ceramic version of any tooth. Whether you need an onlay, inlay, crown or bridge, the CEREC dentistry is a convenient, one-sitting treatment option that is not overly invasive.
Crowns and Bridges
Missing, chipped, discolored, or poorly restored teeth can make you feel self-conscious. Not to mention, it can adversely impact your oral function. Having missing or damaged teeth could also cause other serious oral problems. Such conditions often lead to gum disease and bone loss, which could affect your other healthy teeth as well as your overall health. Fortunately, experienced dentists in Tysons Corner and other locations at SmilePerfectors, offer ideal remedies in the form of dental crowns and dental bridges to protect damaged teeth and replace missing teeth. Dental Crown A dental crown is a cap made out of metal such as gold, or a cosmetic material like all-ceramic options such as porcelain, E-max, Lava, Zirconia and BruxZir, which is fitted and cemented to your tooth.
Brushing, flossing and rinsing at home are excellent oral habits. However, routine professional care, or in other words, deep dental cleaning from the experts at SmilePerfectors is essential for maintaining optimum oral health. When it comes to your oral health and any possible risks, time is of the essence. Our keen dental staff can alert you to problem areas or underlying issues that are not visible to the untrained eye. Scheduling a professional cleaning and exam every 3 to 6 months is recommended, as this will reduce your exposure to harmful plaque and bacteria. Why Consider Professional Dental Cleaning? Tartar, or mineralized plaque, may develop even after brushing and flossing regularly.
Feeling anxious about your smile due to a missing tooth? Dental implants may be the answer, and SmilePerfectors can help. Dental Implants act as replacements for missing teeth. Although stronger and more durable, implants look, feel and even function just like your natural teeth. After a careful examination of the tooth in question, the experts at SmilePerfectors utilize state-of-the-art imaging technology to create a replacement tooth. The replacement tooth will blend seamlessly with your other teeth, and perform just like your natural tooth. SmilePerfectors will follow up with you after the implant procedure to ensure the success of the treatment.
Your teeth are constantly exposed to bacteria and other elements that contribute to tooth decay and/or cavities. To minimize the risk from exposure to bacteria and other harmful elements, SmilePerfectors offers Sealants in Tysons Corner and other locations. Dental Sealants are nothing but a thin, oral-friendly plastic coating specifically engineered to protect your teeth. Sealants are applied in a systematic fashion at any of our dental arts centers. The tooth is cleaned, dried and gently treated with a bonding solution prior to applying the sealant. The sealant solution will rest and coat the tooth, providing a shield-like protective casing.
Dental veneers, or thin, custom-made resin or porcelain laminates, can help drastically improve the appearance of a worn, chipped, or discolored tooth. Since porcelain veneers are attached directly to the tooth, they are considered a versatile treatment option to increase the tooth size, improve color, eliminate any gaps, and provide protection. SmilePerfectors offers the latest precision techniques in dental veneer treatment in Tysons Corner and other locations. Our staff will ensure that your porcelain veneers are precisely made to conform to your individual smile.
Full & Partial Dentures
Looking to enhance your smile with a natural, durable teeth replacement option? Dentures are a durable, reliable and natural-looking treatment option to replace missing teeth, and are offered at your local SmilePerfectors center. Unlike dental implants or bridges, which are fixed and not removable, dentures can be taken out for cleaning and maintenance while still being strong and durable. Your local dental professional at SmilePerfectors will guide you through the denture procedure, ensuring a comfortable fit and a natural look and feel. Whether you need a full or partial set of dentures, our goal remains the same: a vibrant, restored smile and your complete satisfaction.
Gum Disease Treatment
In addition to our professional dental services, SmilePerfectors proudly offers specialized gum treatment in Tysons Corner and other locations to ensure your gums stay healthy. If your gums are not properly cleaned, plaque buildup can irritate and cause the gums to swell, which produces discomfort around the teeth. Periodontitis, a deteriorating gum disease, causes the gum line to recede and expose the root surface. This can lead to tooth sensitivity, root caries and eventually, tooth loss. At SmilePerfectors, treatment and restoration of gum tissue are handled by our experienced Periodontists in Tysons Corner and other locations.
Inlays and Onlays
SmilePerfectors is dedicated to the health and vitality of your smile. We offer the best Onlay and Inlay treatment options in Tysons Corner and other locations, which help reduce or eliminate the progression of tooth decay. Although a bit more expensive, Onlays and Inlays are an extremely durable filling option. Inlays and onlays basically are restorative treatment options, alternate to dental fillings and dental crowns. Our skilled dentists in Tysons Corner and other locations usually recommend inlay and onlay treatment options if there is only a small amount of damage to just a small portion of your tooth.
At SmilePerfectors, we understand that everyone wants a beautiful smile without relying on braces, which are too conspicuous and make you feel self-conscious. For that reason, we bring you the revolutionary Invisalign® treatment to Tysons Corner and other locations. This treatment will straighten your teeth in an effective and inconspicuous way. Invisalign® is a clear and virtually undetectable alternative to braces that can help correct and restore your smile. Unlike braces, which are installed directly on the tooth and held together with wire, Invisalign® utilizes a series of removable plastic moldings placed over your teeth that are specifically designed to gently move and correctly align the teeth.
A dental filling is a restorative method used to strengthen teeth and counter the expansion of tooth decay that can lead to caries, more commonly known as cavities. At SmilePerfectors we utilize health-conscious, earth-friendly materials to provide dental fillings. Your options include custom-fitted restorations, traditional mercury-free fillings, as well as metal-free, composite resin restorations. The metal-free fillings are composed of plastic and/or ceramic materials, which mimic the natural white hue of your teeth. Why Mercury Free Fillings? In the past amalgam fillings were the common norms for treating tooth decay.
Routine visits to the experienced SmilePerfectors dentists in Tysons Corner and other locations are essential for anyone looking to maintain good oral health. While regularly seeing our dentists is vital, you also need to adhere to certain daily practices to keep your oral health in peak condition. Here are certain things that you can do on your own to preserve your precious smile. Brush Regularly Regular brushing is the foundation of a vibrant and healthy smile. Brushing after meals, or at least twice a day, can help remove damaging plaque that can build up on and in between your teeth.
Malocclusion, or misaligned teeth, is a common condition that affects some of our patients. Malocclusions can vary in severity and type, such as crowding, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Recent advancements in the field of orthodontics allow dentists to offer corrective and permanent procedures that can ensure a healthy and vibrant smile. When it comes to your complete oral health, SmilePerfectors always has your best interests at heart. Consult with one of our experienced dental professionals to determine if an orthodontic procedure is appropriate for you.
Pediatric (Kids) Dentist
SmilePerfectors’ pediatric dentists in Tysons Corner and other locations have the experience working with children of all ages, starting at 1 year old. By teaching good oral health values at a young age, it is our goal to instill children with the importance of visiting the dentist in the future, so they can take their oral health into their own hands. For parents, the best time to start bringing your child in to visit the pediatric dentist is after all of their baby teeth have grown in, which usually happens not long after their first birthday. Our kids’ dentist works on a rotating schedule, and can provide services for your child at any one of our four offices in the Northern Virginia and DC area, making scheduling an appointment easier without the inconvenience of driving out of the way.
SmilePerfectors employs our own in-house periodontists, in Tysons Corner and other locations, to perform a variety of periodontal services for our patients. Much like our dental staff, our periodontists put patient care and good oral health practices above all else. Our periodontal services include therapeutic gum treatment for patients with gum disease, restorative gum treatment, and a variety of non-surgical options to improve the integrity of the gum tissue in the top and the bottom of your mouth. Your gum’s health is linked to the health of your teeth, so SmilePerfectors will dedicate all efforts and expertise into ensuring both stay healthy.
Protective Night Guards
Nightguards, also known as occlusal guards and mouthguards, are custom-made appliances which can aid in the prevention of teeth grinding and preservation of precious tooth enamel. Bruxism, a condition in which a patient may be grinding their teeth, can be treated with the use of these nightguard devices. Bruxism may also occur due to jaw clamping, and stress related issues. Grinding often occurs involuntarily, especially when an individual is sleeping. Early detection is the key to preventing any condition that may affect the overall health of your teeth and gums.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are generally performed when tooth decay is at a risk of targeting the pulp foundation at the bottom of the tooth which connects to the bloodstream. If the tooth is relatively intact, SmilePerfectors will recommend that a root canal be performed in order to help preserve the tooth before the damage becomes too extensive, and will work to minimize any discomfort brought about by it. If tooth decay is allowed to reach the pulp in the bottom of the tooth, bacteria gain an entryway into the bloodstream, elevating the likelihood of infection and illness, and your dentist will highly recommend removing the tooth altogether.
At SmilePerfectors, we care about your oral health. While having all the teeth is beneficial, sometimes it becomes necessary to remove a damaged tooth in order to protect other natural teeth. When it comes to tooth extraction, we ensure to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Hearing a dental professional say the word “extraction” is enough to instill fear in some patients. In cases such as infection or failed root canal, the extraction of a tooth may be the most appropriate option to ensure your overall dental health. Allowing other teeth to grow properly is another reason to consider the extraction procedure.
Want sparkly white teeth for that perfect smile? At SmilePerfectors, we provide exceptional teeth whitening that brings back the true beauty of your smile, which is lost due to discolored or yellowed teeth. Over the course of time, teeth tend to yellow as a reaction to a variety of causes, such as aging, poor oral hygiene, chewing tobacco and ingesting an abundance of certain drinks such as tea, coffee, soda and red wine. Tooth whitening, also known as tooth bleaching, is FDA-approved practice where dentists help patients regain their teeth’s natural enamel white color through a choice of various procedures.
Some patients today suffer from various forms of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder that can affect the facial muscles that help the jaw move up and down, causing muscle spasms. One of the more common side effects of a TMJ disorder is the subconscious grinding and clenching of teeth, where it is natural for the patient to close their jaw where the top and bottom teeth are in contact with each other for a long time in a manner that can chip and whittle down the enamel. SmilePerfectors is here to extend a helping hand to anyone living with a TMJ disorder and can provide restorative and preventive TMJ treatments in Tysons Corner and any of our other locations, we can help keep your teeth healthy and strong.
At SmilePerfectors we care about your oral health. While wisdom teeth, located in the back of the mouth, are valuable assets to have, in certain cases they can cause several oral conditions. These may include misalignment, impacting of the gums, and painful crowding. In order to prevent these conditions, it becomes necessary to remove wisdom teeth. Your local family dentists at SmilePerfectors can provide expert wisdom tooth extraction in Tysons Corner and many of other locations. We will advise wisdom tooth extraction only in absolute necessary cases. As always, our goal is to ensure your smile stays healthy and pain-free.
