Restorative Dentistry in Harrisonburg
Reclaim Your Beautiful Smile
It’s very common for a person to experience a broken, decayed, or missing tooth at some point in their life. These things happen, even for people who take good care of their teeth! At Harrisonburg Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we can restore your dental health and beauty by using a wide array of treatments that will have teeth looking great and feeling even better in record time. If your smile needs a little help, be sure to read on below and contact us today for an appointment.
Crowns & Bridges
If you have a chipped, cracked, decayed, or missing tooth, crowns and bridges are two very likely solutions. They are some of the most widely used and trusted treatments in all of dentistry! Thanks to our team's meticulous attention to detail, you can trust that your newly repaired teeth will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
When repairing a small cavity or slightly damaged tooth, our practice only uses composite resin tooth-colored fillings instead of traditional dental metals that leave a large gray mark behind. This material is not only strong and durable, but it can also be shaded to match the color of your enamel, making it practically invisible as well. Plus, because these fillings are metal-free, they won’t make your tooth more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.
If you have missing teeth, there are multiple ways you can replace them at our practice. However, the option that provides the most natural-looking and long-lasting results by far is dental implants. Implants literally rebuild the teeth from the root up and can be used to replace any number of teeth for a lifetime.
Dentures have been used for generations to quickly and affordably replace lost dental structure. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or an entire row, we can help you find the perfect denture for you. We even use advanced technology to create digital dentures, which are designed based off of a digital scan rather than a manual impression. We print the dentures right here in our office, streamlining your treatment process and allowing you to make fewer trips to our office.
Our number one goal is to help patients preserve their natural teeth for as long as possible. However, sometimes the best course of action may involve removing one. This could be the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be repaired.
- Gum disease has damaged the bone supporting a tooth.
- A baby tooth won’t fall out on its own.
- To make room for a partial or full denture.
- To make room for orthodontic treatment.
- To replace a weakened tooth with a dental implant.
Root Canal Therapy
An infection in the inner portion of your tooth isn’t pleasant, and the only way to alleviate any pain and discomfort is one of two ways: tooth extraction or root canal therapy in Harrisonburg. The goal of our dentists is to help you keep your natural teeth as long as possible. By having a root canal performed, this enables us to save your tooth, remove the infection, and get you back to enjoying the life you’re living.
CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
Traditionally, if you wanted to have a tooth repaired with a dental crown, it would take at least two appointments to the dentist’s office to compelte the process. In today’s fast-paced world, that simply takes too long. With our CEREC system, we can quickly repair your tooth with custom-made, all-porcelain crowns that are designed, milled, and placed in only one appointment. Now, you don’t have to sacrifice your schedule to get the dental care that you need.
Inlays & Onlays
These restorations are used to treat teeth that are too damaged to be repaired by a filling but don’t quite need a dental crown yet. They are both made entirely of dental porcelain and are sometimes referred to as “partial crowns.”
An inlay is used to restore the internal structure of a tooth while an onlay rebuilds the rough upper edges of a tooth, known as the cusp.
