Our Restorative Dentistry Services
Your whole mouth is important for your overall wellness and quality of life, and at Aesthetic & Family Dentistry of Washington, we want to partner with you to ensure a lifetime of great oral health. That’s why Dr. Yelena Obholz strongly recommends that you come to us with any lost or damaged teeth so that we can provide a solution as quickly as possible. Our wide variety of available restorative services can give you the renewed support and relief you need most during this trying time.
A crown is a durable way to restore an extensively damaged front or back tooth. Our Washington, DC office can offer crowns made of several different materials based on individual needs as well as cost. With the help of all the materials and techniques that modern dentistry has to offer, patients can enjoy a brand-new crown that looks completely natural. Additional benefits crowns can offer include the ability to close spaces between teeth, change the angulations of teeth, correct bite problems, and replace missing teeth as part of a bridge or dental implant.
CEREC One-Appointment Crowns
We understand that your time is just as valuable as your smile. That’s why, if you’re in need of a crown, we’re happy to offer services using our state-of-the-art CEREC machine. With this advanced technology, our team can design and create top quality restorations in just one visit – no impressions, trays, or temporary restorations required! The process is simple, too – after capturing a 3D image of your tooth, the CEREC system will mill a beautiful, high-quality crown in about an hour. Then, Dr. Obholz will securely place it over the affected tooth, allowing you to leave with a healthier, happier smile.
If you are missing one or more teeth, a fixed bridge may be the ideal solution for your smile. Unlike traditional dentures, bridges stay in place permanently without hooks or clasps, and they look and feel completely natural. Better yet, they’re able to prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting, which is a common problem following tooth loss. If you have any questions about crown and bridgework, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
Root Canal Therapy
Patients may require root canal therapy when the nerve tissue in a tooth is badly damaged due to decay, trauma, or fracture. While this procedure may have earned a bad reputation in the past, today’s procedures are relatively simple and only offer minimal discomfort. Best of all, as long as properly cared for, many treated teeth go on to last for the rest of the patient’s life!
Dr. Obholz and the rest of our dedicated staff look forward to helping you achieve your ideal smile!
