Restorative Dentistry in Herndon, VA
Rare is the person who goes through life without requiring any sort of tooth repair. At some point along the way, most people need restorative dentistry. Whether because of normal wear and tear over the years or a sudden and traumatic injury, teeth are susceptible to the same deteriorating effects of aging as the rest of the body. But it’s not only aging that can make a restorative dentistry treatment necessary. Patients of all ages, even children, are vulnerable when it comes to offenders such as the bacteria that cause tooth decay.
At Virginia Dentistry by Design, Dr. Dilolli and her staff are ready to rebuild your healthy smile with the restorative treatment that is right for you.
Crowns & Bridges
Tooth loss can be the result of severe tooth decay,advanced gum disease or a traumatic injury that knocks out a tooth. In the case of decay and gum disease, these cannot only cause tooth loss, but they may also be the result of tooth loss. In other words, people who have missing teeth are more inclined to develop decay and gum disease. Thus, the process can become a vicious cycle.
Furthermore, there are also general health and emotional consequences that come of having one or more missing teeth. Tooth loss can negatively impact diet and nutrition. Symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) may develop as a result of adjacent teeth that shift to take up the space of missing teeth. Speech can be impaired, and a person with missing teeth may be reluctant to smile or laugh. Thus, the importance of replacing missing teeth cannot be overstated.
A reliable and natural-looking tooth replacement option is a crown and bridge, which consists of two crowns that are mounted on healthy adjacent teeth in order to permanently hold the false teeth that bridge the gap of missing teeth. A bridge can be designed to replace one missing tooth, or several consecutive teeth when necessary. If you and Dr. Dilolli decide that a crown and bridge is the right prosthetic appliance for you, then you can soon look forward to having a fully restored smile that is not only aesthetically attractive, but healthier, too.
If we find that you have a cavity—and these are discovered either by probing the teeth for soft spots or on a digital x-ray—then Dr. Dilolli will likely recommend restoring your tooth with a natural colored filling. Unlike amalgam fillings that are comprised of a mix of metals including silver, a natural colored filling is made of composite resins that are blended to match the color of your tooth. This type of filling not only offers the advantage of being far more aesthetically pleasing than an amalgam filling, but it also requires less tooth preparation. For you that means less drilling, and for conservative dentist Dr. Dilolli this means that more of the tooth’s original structure is preserved. By retaining more natural tooth structure, the restored tooth is stronger and more durable.

Full Mouth Reconstruction VS Smile Makeovers
Whereas a smile makeover is elective, a full mouth reconstruction is something that you need to have. Full mouth reconstruction may involve multiple restorative, neuromuscular, orthodontic, and cosmetic dental procedures. The primary goal of full mouth reconstruction is to fully restore not only the appearance of your smile, but also its normal structure and functioning.
