Routine Cleanings: Dental cleanings involve removing plaque (soft, sticky, bacteria infested film) and tartar/calculus (a hard calcified substance that can damage tooth supporting bone). Your teeth are continually bathed in saliva which contains calcium and other substances which help strengthen and protect the teeth. While this is a good thing, it also means that we tend to get a build-up of calcium deposits on the teeth, that must be removed to prevent damage to bone.

Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride Treatments help prevent tooth decay by strengthening the tooth structure. These treatments are beneficial for anyone, but can become necessary for people suffering from gingivitis or dry mouth, and are recommended for those with a history of frequently getting cavities. Fluoride used for professional treatment is of a higher concentration than of fluoride found in toothpaste or mouthwash.
The treatment process typically lasts only a few minutes. A gel or foam containing fluoride may be applied directly to the surface of the teeth with a cotton swab or in a rinse. Fluoride gels, mouthwashes, and supplements are also available with a prescription.
 

Cosmetic Dentistry

The appearance of your teeth can affect you socially, emotionally and even in business. We offer various cosmetic dental options to improve your smile and boost your confidence.
Contact our office today at 804 360 3500 to schedule an appointment for your teeth whitening, veneers and other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Whitening: The most convenient and by far the longest lasting option to whiten your teeth is using our at home treatment. We make impressions of your teeth and fabricate clear custom fitting trays for you to wear at home. Simply apply a small amount of our professional grade bleaching solution into your trays and wear at least 1 hour. These trays can be used repeatedly and will last for many many years.
Veneers: They are permanent and beautiful. Veneers can correct discolored teeth, hide chips and fractures and straighten misaligned teeth. Often there is very little tooth preparation required for a veneer. An impression is made and a lab forms a veneer from thin sheaths of porcelain layered atop of each other. The veneer is then skillfully adjusted by Dr. Anderson and cemented permanently onto your tooth. The results help to create your perfect smile.

Bridges - Crowns

Contact our office today at (804) 360-3500 to schedule an appointment for crowns and bridges.
Crowns, or caps, are made of porcelain and/or metal and are placed over a fractured tooth to protect and restore the function of the tooth. Applying a crown requires that Dr. Anderson reshape the damaged tooth. Next, an impression of the tooth is made. A temporary crown is placed over the tooth during the period it takes to manufacture the permanent crown. Then Dr. Anderson will carefully evaluate the bite, make adjustments and permanently cement the crown in place.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are secured in the mouth with crowns applied to the teeth adjacent to the tooth which is missing. Bridges help prevent the teeth surrounding the missing tooth from drifting out of position. Bridges also restore the chewing function that has been lost.
A bridge is started by Dr. Anderson reshaping the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to prepare them for crowns. An impression is made of the area, and a temporary bridge is put in place. After the permanent bridge has been made. Dr. Anderson will skillfully make any needed adjustments to the bite and then permanently cement the bridge in place.
 

Tooth Fillings

Contact our office today at 804 360 3500 to schedule an appointment for a consultation to determine the best treatment for your smile.
 
Fillings are necessary if a cavity has developed in a tooth and decay has begun to occur. If decay is allowed to spread it can lead to more severe problems, including tooth loss. Getting a filling to repair decay can prevent you from later needing root canal treatment or tooth extraction.
A local anesthetic is given, decayed areas of the tooth are removed, and a composite resin filling is put in the decay's place. Composite Resin can be bonded to the tooth in layers, allowing Dr. Anderson to preserve more of your natural tooth. It is also comparatively inexpensive, and is tooth-colored and less noticeable than metal fillings.

Dentures - Partials - Implants

Contact our office today at 804 360 3500 to schedule an appointment for a consultation to determine the best treatment for your smile.
Another wonderful advancement for replacing missing teeth are dental implants. Dr. Anderson in cooperation with an oral surgeon will evaluate the area to determine if an implant is possible. The surgeon places an anchor into the bone and this is allowed to heal for a few months. After healing is fully completed, Dr. Anderson places a post or abatment into the anchor and a crown is fabricated to cement onto the post. The implant can then be treated as one of your own, natural teeth.
Implants can also be used to help stabilize a partial or complete denture.

Root Canals

A root canal is a procedure to remove the nerve from an infected or aching tooth in order to save the tooth.
Contact our dental office in Glen Allen, VA today at 804 360 3500 to schedule an appointment for your dental treatment.
The root canals are the parts of the tooth where the pulp containing the nerves and the blood vessels that feed the tooth are found. Root Canal Treatment becomes necessary if an infection of the pulp inside the tooth occurs. If this type of infection spreads, it can affect the bone surrounding the tooth, and cause severe pain, swelling and eventual tooth loss. In Root Canal Treatment, the tooth is anesthetized, and an opening into the nerve chamber is made. Infected tooth pulp is removed, the root canals are cleaned and enlarged, and a filling and sealant is put in the pulp's place. Following a root canal it is generally necessary to place a crown on the tooth to secure and strengthen the tooth.
